    I don't know, he doesn't seem to be complaining, more just generally asking.

    I haven't taken it as him complaining, quite honestly I think he's just curious about how Kodansha are making the release work. It's something I've wondered as well and hadn't been able to get much knowledge about until now.

    For once I think he really is just information gathering rather than complaining. :p

    I agree that he seems more confused than annoyed, like he's outsourcing his research to decide whether a separate release might make sense. I suspect it would, if he can manage it, since the US-only discs will turn off the casual audience that a megahit like Attack On Titan deserves to attract.

    Yeah I originally thought that but then his is it BBFC'd question made me wonder (also shows the licensors of the show have no clue about the OVAs)

    I imagine the cost would be prohibitive to a lot of people. £12 or so for 24 minutes on a disc, you can't really use is not the best value.

    Plus, with the greatest will in the world, my AoT loving friends probably don't read the manga legally even though they can do so for free. They probably didn't even know the OVAs were out on DVD. I don't follow the AoT manga, so I'm concerned about missing some of them...

    Thats a shame I read the manga on CR and buy the physical vols.

    On what service? If you mean Crunchyroll, they only have the latest chapters, they don't have it from the start. I wish they did, I'd love to read it, especially when S2 of the show has been delayed.

    I Started the manga originally from vol 9 ( after the female titan arc ) and I understood it perfectly.

    I'm a completionist, I couldn't bare starting a manga halfway through, even if I've seen the anime adaption.

    I was one of the people who started the manga straight after the anime as well and got into it alright xD

    Crunchyroll did have the full series for a little while a few months ago, but it sounds like the license just doesn't allow it most of the time.

    That's free only if you have a library near you with the manga... Otherwise you have to purchase them.

    True, but I'd rather read them for free via CR ;)

    I wouldnt call CR free tbh.
     
  18. IncendiaryLemon

    True; but I pay for CR every month anyway purely for the anime, so being able to read Manga like AoT is more like a nice bonus.
