The Conqueror of Shamballa is a must see for FMA fans. Without going too much details, the movie pretty much takes place 2 years after where the TV series had ended. I personally liked it, but the movie kind had some mixed reviews.

Here's the detail of the limited edition from RightStuf and strangely it has the release date for Sept. 26th:
- The limited edition comes with a 64-Page hardback book, ten 5x7 portrait cards, and a bonus DVD with extras.
- DVD Features: "The Making of Fullmetal Alchemist: The Movie."
- Bonus DVD Features: 54 Minute Interview with Japanese Cast and Crew, 3 Audio Commentaries, 2 Japanese Staff Commentaries, US Staff Commentary, Extended Trailer.
- Spoken Languages: English, Japanese, English subtitles.

For those who shop at your local Best Buy, the buy any 2 volumes of FullMetal Alchemist and get $5 off is also applicable in stores as well (Exp. 7/8/06).


Sidenote: I picked up Gantz Season 2 Collection today @ Best Buy for $30 (10% off coupon + more leftover gift card).

Yaeh, I called them twice about my orders and now sort of feel like an asshole (even though I never acted like one). My S-Cry-Ed set came in today and the outer shipping box looks kind of beaten up, but I could care less if the packaging to my set is a bit out of shape. At $10 and a price mistake you simply can't go wrong. I'll open it up later, but BuyriteDVD, you have my praise and gratitude and I can tell you that if you guys continue to put up awesome prices and deals like this, then my money will be quickly vanishing to you. Keep up the good work and deals.

Again I wish there was some way to edit posts. Anyway, about the calling, it was in reference to a CAG thread, but I posted here as well and what I meant is that I feel like I heckled them a bit as all I was was worried about my order.

There should be an edit box in the lower right hand corner[next to the "Quote" box] of the post that you want to edit. Just place your cursor on the Edit box and click. You should now be able to edit that particular post.

I don't believe it has been confirmed yet! The licenses for (Manga Entertainment) Guyver (OAV), Fist of the North Star (TV), Patlabor 1: The Movie, Patlabor 2: The Movie, New Dominion Tank Police, Red Hawk, Dark Myth, Black Magic M-66, Wings of Honneamise, and Gunbuster had expired this past January. Since then only the two Patlabor movies have already been announced as being released by Bandai Visual.

Thanks for the news, WTK. Excited about Beck finally getting licensed over here. I'm not really sure if I should update with the news, though, since this is the bargains thread... The second post is pretty long as is. The information is appreciated, really. Maybe next month we should have a third post dedicated to little tidbits and such.

People have told that to me before on DVDtalk, but I just don't get that or the quote box to come up for some reason. I really don't know why.

Yaeh, I am using Firefox so maybe that is what is happening. Any idea how to change it so it doesn't or do I have to open up the Firefox hood and start seeing what I can do.

I also use Mozilla Firefox, Version 1.5.0.4, but I have no problems editing my own posts. The pop-up blocker isn't an issue for me either. There should be three buttons on the lower bottom of each of your own posts. They should be "Edit," "Quote," and "Quick Reply."

A quick heads-up. A member over at AOD posted that ADV were handing out $5 off coupons for any of their titles at Best Buy during the Anime Expo. The coupon expires on July 31. He said that he would post a scan of the coupon a little later. I'll keep an eye on the thread over there and once he posts a scan of the coupon, I'll post it here. BB typically sells ADV singles for $19.99, so the coupon will come in quite handy for anyone that needs to fill in gaps of a series. It's also a good deal for some of their cheaper thinpaks. I plan on using it on Wedding Peach Season 1 for $16.99.

I have personally used printed RZ coupons at my local Best Buy without any problems. Any coupons that look phony, unclear, or don't scan may be another story.

Seen it. It's pretty funny - lots of bright colors, goofy enemies and good fan service too. I seem to remember one scene where she can't do her "cutey honey" prest-o-change-o to super-heroine mode and is running around town half-naked trying to eat enough food to build up the energy to do the change.

"Bandai Entertainment has acquired the rights to two of the OVA series: Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex - The Laughing Man and Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex - Individual Eleven.
Is this something beyond the two seasons of SAC, or does it mean those DVDs are going to go OOP rsn and eventually be re-issued by Bandai for a whole lot more money?

Well, OVA series are different than the TV series.

I don't believe the regular seasons will be going OOP any time soon. It's probably a little too soon for Bandai to be be reissuing the TV series since they are still releasing the 2nd GIG. The OVAs and the movie are long enough length-wise to be their own releases. So for the time being, it's more likely that Bandai will release the OVAs and the movie separately from the TV series.

GITS: SAC - The Laughing Man correlates to the 1st season. GITS: SAC - Individual Eleven correlate to the 2nd season (2nd GIG). I'm sure both OVAs will have parts recycled from the TV series mixed in with some new ones. As for GITS: SAC - Solid State Society, it's supposed to be a GITS: SAC based movie that takes place after the 2nd GIG. After seeing the video clip for the Solid State Society it makes me think that they are using recyled materials from both seasons in the movie.

Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex - The Laughing Man (OAV)
- This is a compilation of Laughing Man related material from the first season of Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex along with new footage and upgraded to theatrical film quality.
- Length: 140 minutes
- Vintage: 9/23/05

Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex - Indiviudal Eleven (OAV)
- It's based on the Individual Eleven storyline from the GIT: 2nd GIG.
- Length: 163 minutes
- Vintage: 1/27/06

Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex - Solid State Society (Movie)
- "The 100-minute (tentative running time) movie takes place in 2034, two years after the refugee riot incident. A significantly larger Section 9, with over 20 new officers, investigates terrorist actions related to a wizard-like hacker 'Kugutsu Mawashi.'"
- Length: 100 minutes
- Vintage: Summer 2006 ?
- Video Clip
