Took their time with it, but they finally have it, and 103 episodes in one year isn't a bad speed for something which has so many episodes out already.

Oh look, did I just happen to pre order all four with expedited prime delivery on Amazon? I do think that just happened.

Look what happens when you give me what I want, Manga? You get what YOU want. We both win! Hurray for winning! #winning

Not something i'm going to pick up but it's a welcome sight, the fact it was missing from our shelves has always struck me as odd.

Halo: Forward Unto Dawn was licensed for release? That's interesting. I hear a lot of praise sung for that, and i'm still to actually go and watch it. I think i may have an excuse to now.

Ugh, I brought the first five collections from America last year... now I'm annoyed. I really want to support the release as well! Do I wait until 2014 just in case they sell well enough to make it to six onwards?

Hmmm. Not sure whether to buy OP or not. I have been undecided over the Funi releases for a while due to lack of shelfspace, but these look to be regular DVD case size for 26 episodes, which makes it undeniably more viable...
