My question didn't get picked specifically but part of it was folded into an ambiguous catch all- 6 Gundam works planned for next year currently. Given SEED Destiny is apparently one of those, that would leave us with 5 from the following:

Gundam 0080
Gundam The 08th MS Team
Victory Gundam
G Gundam
Gundam X
Gundam AGE
Gundam Build Fighters
Gundam Build Fighters Try
Gundam Build Divers
Gundam Build Divers Re:Rerise

Wildcards I'm not expecting:
SD Gundam Force
SD Gundam Brave Battle Warriors
SD Gundam World Sangoku Soketsuden
SD Gundam World Heroes
Gundam-san
I reckon they'll choose Gundam 0080, The 08th MS Team, MS-IGLOO, G Gundam, Victory Gundam and maybe Gundam Hathaway if Sunrise decides to allow a local release next year. Basically get most of the UC titles out of the way next year so that what's left is pretty much the new & obscure Gundams.

I think the real wildcards are actually 4K Ultra HD versions of Gundam Movie Trilogy and Thunderbolt.

Don't forget MS Igloo. That would be an interesting (if divisive) pick.

Loved that someone asked about Angels Egg, I would preorder super quick

What was the question / answer?

It's such a breathtaking work, I'd love it to get a release here. I know that Arrow have tried in the past, but they don't have many/any anime connections so I wonder if someone like AL could make a breakthrough.

I'd double dip if the films get a UK release with the original Japanese audio track. The Maiden Japan release only has the inferior Sound Renewal redub. I regret skipping the Korean sets.

I'd double dip too for that very reason, but I do think/hope that it's only a matter of time before there are new masters available. The existing transfers must be about 15 years old now and I would imagine that it has a big enough profile in Japan for a 4K restoration....maybe?

That would be amazing. A region B Angel's Egg bluray release in the west would be an instant buy for me.

I could see Sunrise pushing for Hathaway to recoup costs in the way they have with other modern Gundam but unlike those it seems to be caught up in the Netflix deal. Note the import edition is sub only. There's also the fact Sunrise are taking a leisurely pace to this trilogy, whereas Unicorn and Origin rolled on as each episode released.

Not saying it won't happen, there just seems to be a lot against it.

started watchcing Planetes on blu-ray last night but wanted to know if anyone else watching it in 5.1 has any issues with the left and right speakers on both side being a lot louder than the center speaker which means i had to boost the centre speaker up quite a bit to have it all levelled

I have (and love) the Elfen Lied steelbook blu-ray release, but this is one of those very few shows I wouldn't hesitate to double dip on, especially if it was a digipak release with a decent artbook.

Hell, if that german release does indeed have english subs I'm gonna have to consider importing it, it looks gorgeous...

Presume the AL store will be updated with the new dates for the delayed releases soon?

Also, does anyone have any news on what's happening with the releases dates for SAO: Alicization - War for Underworld (Part 1 and 2)?

Hanners on Discord confirmed they believe that they will have both parts for SAO:A:WOUW on the 13th of December to ship. And yes, it hasn't been updated on their own website.
