    Quite a few sets that I own have the main info printed on the base of the box, a good workaround imo! Personally not fussed either way, a box is just a box.

    Do Funimation's masters include Funimation'ed credits? If so, I'd prefer Japan's masters even if the upscale itself is worse.

    Wow, I've been waiting to hear when that was going up, I see your post and think "Huh, has it started and I somehow missed someone post about it?" and sure enough, I just ordered Zeta Part 2 with less than 24 hours left in the early bird sale. *phew*... I should pay attention more, I guess?

    Yeah they do :) but dvd's don't, not that we see many dvd's in fancy boxes nowadays.

    Or indeed just don't remove it in the first place! :p

    (And leave it as it is, with clean artwork annoyingly trapped underneath. :mad:)

    If you read the Japanese article, it's more a re-edition than anything and I don't see any reference to new video quality or such. I see new extras added seemingly but that's about it - nonetheless we have of course asked the question :).

    Afraid on a boring commercial level, we'll not re-do 7 BDs of masters (which is easily a five figure sum) just for credits. It'd need to be significantly better video quality too - which I am unconvinced there will be as I know the studio are hard at work on the new films (which requires a tonne of re-animation work taking the old assets and redoing them to be 16:9), so the timings just don't match up to be something related to that.

    If there is a change as I say, we'll look into it though but there has to be a good commercial reason too :).

    Andrew, any hope with Lodoss?
    I've placed a pre-order for the US release for now. It's been a long time since I've bought an import.

    With Record of Grancrest War (by the same author) getting an anime, I hope AL grabs this too. I imagine it's a while away and presume it will be through AoA.

    Also, has anyone's copy of Evangelion arrived from AL's webstore? I haven't received mine, and got a dispatch email last week. Bit worried, as my previous order went missing and had to be shipped again.

    Easter weekend has caused delays with deliveries. So please give it more time than usual - am guessing everything's backed up in some places by a least a few working days.

    Certainly wouldn't want an info sheet covering that artwork ;) I wonder what the lenticular effect will be?

    Well, that's certainly something. I'd probably buy the show on an EB but I'm too unsure if I'd like it to pay full price.

    Prison School is still up on Viewster if you're not sure. I liked it way more than I expected, given its goofy premise and reputation.

    That and Wolf's Rain
    (Heck I'm still waiting to hear if I can get a hold of the slipcovers for the two FMA sets since mine in the UCE didn't have them)

    Lol so it's still getting a release I was expecting the bbfc baning it out right. It could have a lot of cuts instead and I've only seen clips of it.
