Awesome news and all but... Who's Dubbing it?

I assume it will either be Canada or Bang Zoom (more likely the latter)

Seraphim Digital, (if Sentai Filmworks have it)
STUDIOPOLIS
or
The Ocean Group
(if Viz have it)

seem the good bets.
FUNi might also get it due to media Factory involvement, and they do their own dubs.

Bang Zoom do Bandai Ent. (dead) Geneon USA (also dead), Media Blasters (nearly dead) and Aniplex dubs. and Aniplex didn't make it.

Well, as Viz Media Europe has it, wouldn't it make it more likely that Viz Media America has it?

Nope, they release far, far more than Viz USA does, including plenty that's licensed to others in America.

But it's quite likely, they're still the USA's 2nd/3rd richest distributor and this won't be cheap.

Sentai is suggested because they have good relations to Comix Wave.

Having read the description from ANN, this will likely be my first Kaze purchase.

Great news, although I am unlikely to double dip due to the JP release having English subs already.

Do you already have it? How much did it cost you? :P

I don't remember off the top of my head, but movies aren't as "over-priced" as TV anime, so probably not as much as you're thinking. :p

I get almost all of my Japanese stuff from Amazon JP, due to their preorder discounts.

I got almost everything from Yes Asia because Amazon's shipping and the VAT and import duty wiped out the discount anyway, and at least that way I didn't have to keep traipsing down to the post office.

I guess it depends how many things you buy a month as far as the shipping goes.

YesAsia have also let me down with shipping (either being incredibly slow or not turning up) enough times for me to not trust them with anything of any real note.

YesAsia tends to be slow (although they got faster after they stopped reshipping from Croydon, although with more risk of customs) but I've never had anything not arrive (apart from the one pre-order that somehow ended up unavailable despite still being available on CDJapan...)
