Re: Upcoming U.S. Anime Releases - 2014 Edition

Bubblegum Crisis Ultimate Edition Blu-Ray Set

Update #13

Nov 23, 2013

22 Hours to Go

It's hard to believe that there's less than a day left in the KickStarter campaign. As I write this, including PayPal pledges, we're at about $143k, and it looks like we might crack $150k.

I'm not going to go and tell you to keep getting the word out -- you already know about that, and you're doing a great job.

Instead, I'm just going to give you a quick update on what we've been working on the last couple of days:

* I finished the prep work on the backend database that is going to handle all the pledge management and shipping.

* I imported the English DVD subtitles for OVA 1 and corrected the timing and layout for the 1080p24 presentation. This went faster than I thought, and I should have something for you to review next week sometime.

* We continued to refine our costings for various components of the project; this will give us a better estimate of the excess budget you will have to allocate.

Several people have contacted me about joining the project after the KickStarter campaign ends. The PayPal page will remain active until shortly before we actually start producing the sets next year, and we will update the budgets as the total funding grows.

On behalf of Natsumi (aka She Who Must Be Obeyed) and myself, thank you for supporting the project.

Update #14

One last update...

Just a quick update to let you know that with 12 hours to go, we're at about $147.5k.
I've also reduced the Patron Inspector reward level from $500 to $300.
Also, here's an image from the test subtitle run on BGC1:

And I've been experimenting with a different way of handling the ending credits:

Update #15

Nov 24, 2013

Achievement Unlocked!

Well, the campaign is over... which means the hard work of delivering the set has only just begun.

I'll post a more detailed update tomorrow once I've crunched some numbers, but I wanted to take a moment and thank all of you for your participation in this project -- not just the money, but the time you have already spent improving it.

And since “Money Talks,” Natsumi and I are going to express our appreciation by declaring that the $160k Challenge Goal has been achieved. We're certain that we'll get over $160k in the coming weeks via PayPal anyway, so there's no point in waiting.

This means that we're going to pay for the Mastering and Authoring of a 3rd BD50 disc, so if you want one added to the set, the only budgetary cost will be the per-unit cost of the extra disc, packaging and shipping.

You'll get to vote on that, and other things, in the coming days.
Best, Robert

Can the threads of friendship severed by time be mended? Will his friends even recognize him? Or have the changes in their lives as they've grown from children to teenagers made them into different people, pushing them even further apart? For Sana and his best bud Syusuke, it will be strange enough. But with Nanaka, Aoi and Syusuke's twin Syuri all being girls, things are going to get even more complex. That's to say nothing of the sometimes shocking secrets that his four friends know through having lived them, and that Sana will only discover in crossing the minefield of lost years.

Unfortunately, the whys, wherefores and how-to's of comprehending the opposite sex aren't going so well on other fronts. Misaki's attempts to escalate her campaign to win Jin's affections takes a disastrous turn, and Nanami's going to have to learn to come to terms with her feelings for Sorata while adjusting to the third wheel that is Mashiro. And then there's still Sorata's "problem" of picking up cats that he's not supposed to keep. Attentions stray, passions play and sanity frays as the housebreaking continues in the second insane volume of The Pet Girl of Sakurasou!

Consequently, due to some slippery tile and some extra-prominent female appendages, Rito's suddenly on his way to being a member of the royal family. Unfortunately, as hot as Lala is, this is one royal family no one wants to become a part of given that her father, King Develuke, bears a suspicious resemblance to the devil! And then there's the little issue of the very nice human girl that Rito's already interested in, who's probably not going to be too understanding of his sudden involvement in intergalactic affairs. Will Rito become the next king of the galaxy? Will he learn the secret of the Big Bang? Find out in To Love Ru

Needless to say, it's going to be difficult for newly recruited human instructor Genkoku to adjust to working with a living arsenal of high caliber cuties with tricky names like FNC (Funko,) M 16A4 (Ichiroku,) L85A1 (Eru,) and SG 550 (Shigu,). Especially since many have hair triggers and there's no bulletproof vest that can stop a really determined co-ed! He'll have to rewrite the operator's manual on student/teacher relationships, and pray that his job description won't include having to field strip and reassemble one of his cadets in the dark. But unfortunately (for him,) FNC's already thinking about becoming HIS personal weapon, and she usually gets what she aims for! Get ready for explosive situations, amour piercing rounds, cheap shots galore and one VERY shell-shocked homeroom instructor in UPOTTE!

Oh, their triple crossing partners don't make things easy, but the Maki's real dilemma begins when their hideout turns out to be infested with the walking undead! And while cops and other gangsters die when you shoot them, zombies just look at handguns and laugh.

But while they can't fix the vocal chords, they certainly know where brains (and other yummy body parts) are on the menu! A getaway for the weekend becomes a flesh feast of bloody horror and the dish of the day is gangsters on the run with a side of mob moll ala mode in GIRLS, GANGSTERS AND ZOMBIES!

SYNOPSIS: Some things never change: Ame no Kisaki, that famous and exclusive boarding school, STILL doesn't accept boys, and Kanako, Kisaki's most romantically unfortunate student, STILL doesn't accept them either. (They give her the hives. Literally.) Sadly, that means that Kanako's STILL trying to connect with ANYONE of the same sex, and having the usual horrid luck. She's STILL in imminent peril of dying from the constant nosebleeds she gets from being over stimulated by the presence of her fellow classmates. And she's STILL forced to endure the tragedy of sharing a room with the school's most beautiful girl who is, of course, STILL a guy in drag. Poor Kanako! She came hoping to find love and happiness, and all she's found is misery, frustration and a level of desperation so great that she'll even take a chance on a sleepover in a dorm filled with deathtraps. But what YOU'LL find is non-stop hilarity as the girl least likely to succeed refuses to give up, even if it kills her (and it probably will). Kanako's quest for love continues in MARIA HOLIC ALIVE! With an all new English dub featuring Jessica Calvello (Saori, Girls und Panzer) & Monica Rial (Nagase, Kokoro Connect)

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

VIZ MEDIA ANNOUNCES PRE-ORDERS FOR THE CLASSIC RANMA ½ ANIME SERIES ON RESTORED BLU-RAY FOR THE FIRST TIME AND DVD

Legendary Martial Arts-Action-Adventure-Comedy Debuts In High Definition In New 3-Disc Sets That Feature The First Season Of The Celebrated Series And An Array Of Special Bonus Features

San Francisco, CA, December 20, 2013 – VIZ Media, LLC (VIZ Media), the largest distributor and licensor of manga and anime in North America, delights multiple generations of anime fans as it announces pre-orders for the upcoming March 25th release of RANMA ½, the celebrated martial arts action-adventure based on the smash hit manga (graphic novel) series created by Rumiko Takahashi (2-in-1 omnibus manga editions featuring the original right-to-left reading format also debut the same month).

VIZ Media will release the first of seven seasons of RANMA ½ sets as a special Limited Edition Blu-ray Box Set and also as a Standard Edition DVD Set. Pre-orders will be available soon through most major video/DVD/Blu-ray retailers as well as from leading anime retailers including Amazon, RightStuf, and Robert's Anime Corner Store.

The RANMA ½ Blu-ray Box Set carries an MSRP of $54.97 (U.S. / CAN) and offers hours of fun in the special 3-disc set that features 23 episodes of the acclaimed series, presented in full 1080p High Definition resolution taken straight from the original Japanese Blu-ray masters giving fans the uncropped, original 4:3 aspect ratio. For the first time, all episodes are presented in the original Japanese episode order. Dialogue options are available for original Japanese with English subtitles or with dubbed English audio tracks, and a secondary subtitle track for signs and songs will also be included. The set comes packaged in a premium chipboard box with gold foil stamping with art that is beautifully illustrated by Rumiko Takahashi and also includes a 64-page booklet with a full color episode guide along with a manga re-master sampler.

An extensive selection of bonus features for the Blu-ray Box Set makes it a must-own for North American fans. In addition to trailers and upcoming episode previews, the Blu-ray set includes footage of the packed-capacity RANMA ½ panel from the 2013 New York Comic Con, a highlight reel of the 2013 New York Comic Con VIZ Media events, and an exclusive “We Love Ranma” Part 1 - Manga Re-Mastering interview with the VIZ Media Editor Hope Donovan that details some of the processes of the latest manga release.

The RANMA ½ Standard Edition DVD Set is also scheduled for release on March 25th and will be available soon for pre-order. Carrying an MSRP of $44.82 U.S. / CAN, the Standard Set features 23 episodes on 3 discs along with bonus features that include trailers, and a 2013 New York Comic Con highlight reel. English and Japanese audio options will be available, as well as the songs-and-signs subtitle track.

From the legendary oeuvre of master creator Rumiko Takahashi, the mixed-up, madcap, martial arts romantic comedy RANMA 1/2 returns! After taking a surprise dip in a cursed spring while on a training journey in China, martial artist Ranma Saotome and his father, Genma, aren’t quite themselves anymore. Now Ranma turns into a girl whenever he’s splashed with cold water, and Genma turns into a panda! Their new forms cause nothing but confusion at the Tendo dojo, where Soun Tendo is waiting to introduce one of his three daughters to Ranma—as his fiancée! Turns out Genma and Soun arranged the match long ago, but the girl, Akane, and the boy, Ranma, aren’t exactly crazy about the idea, or each other! Or are they? Watch the gender switching, jealous rages, and martial arts battles unfold all over again!

“This is the series that introduced many fans to manga and anime, and we’re extremely excited to mark the return of RANMA ½ to North America in its High Definition debut,” says Charlene Ingram, Senior Animation Marketing Manager. “Catch all of the action and hilarious gender- and species-bending hijinks in the first set of this groundbreaking comedy that also comes jam-packed with an array of special bonus features. We’re pleased to invite fans to take advantage of this special pre-order to secure their Blu-ray or DVD copy of this acclaimed series. These gorgeous sets are truly great to collect and treasure!”

The spotlight on Rumiko Takahashi's career began in 1978 when she won an honorable mention in Shogakukan's prestigious New Comic Artist Contest for Those Selfish Aliens. Later that same year, her boy-meets-alien comedy series, Urusei Yatsura, was serialized in Weekly Shonen Sunday. This phenomenally successful manga series was adapted into anime format and spawned a TV series and half a dozen theatrical-release movies, all incredibly popular in their own right. Takahashi followed up the success of her debut series with one blockbuster hit after another. Maison Ikkoku ran from 1980 to 1987, Ranma 1/2 from 1987 to 1996, and Inuyasha from 1996 to 2008. Other notable works include Mermaid Saga, Rumic Theater, One-Pound Gospel, and RIN-NE.

Takahashi won the Shogakukan Manga Award twice in her career, once for Urusei Yatsura in 1981 and the second time forInuyasha in 2002. A majority of the Takahashi canon has been adapted into other media such as anime, live-action TV series, and film. Takahashi's manga, as well as the other formats her work has been adapted into, have continued to delight generations of fans around the world. Distinguished by her wonderfully endearing characters, Takahashi's work adeptly incorporates a wide variety of elements such as comedy, romance, fantasy, and martial arts. While her series are difficult to pin down into one simple genre, the signature style she has created has come to be known as the "Rumic World." Rumiko Takahashi is an artist who truly represents the very best from the world of manga.
