Okay, I'm hearing all kinds of rumors about ADV going under. Has anyone heard anything about this? Here are some articles/posts:

http://forum.rpg.net/showthread.php?t=376556

If this is true, it'd be a tremendous loss for the community. I know it's all speculation at this point, but it certainly doesn't sound good.

Vol.1 takes place before the TV series and explains how Eureka got the Nirvash.
Vol.2 I think takes place at somepoint during ,but characters from the series story wise are side cast at best well except Moondoggie who has a nice part in the second one.
You can play as a some of the characters and mecha from the series in the VS./training/simulation modes though.

Sumner and Ruri from the game actually appear in one of the episodes of E7 for a brief moment.

Things aren't going very well with ADV...right now we don't know what will happen. Will titles be canceled or delayed indefinitely? Only time will tell.

ANN had a 2nd update to their initial article. Robert's Anime Corner Store posted a recent blog as well. The ICv2 article is not official and was leaked online. We really don't know if that article is accurate or not. The newest Anime Talk covered a little of this matter as well.

To me, it's going to be a rough year for the N. American anime industry.

Hmm... Thanks, WTK. It isn't sounding good.

Edit: Also, sorry - I should've posted this in the anime discussion thread, not here.

Hopefully, 5cm won't get pushed back too far. I've been waiting a long time for its release!

?? I'm sorry, I just glanced over the post that quoted mine and accidentally skipped over yours. I just browse through this thread, I rarely read every post. I don't have as much time to spend here as I used to (obviously, since I gave up running the thread over a year ago).

Still, I'll be in the neighborhood of Best Buy today so I'll stop in and hopefully find them at this price!
Only found Paprika, and it rang up $19.99. >_< Not a problem though, because I explained it was $13.99 on their website and after getting confirmation the cashier let me have it for $13.99. Also had a $5 RZ certificate, so I got the movie for a little less than $10. ^_^

This was already posted on February's thread. Please don't resurrect old anime bargain threads!
