YYH never sold because (and lets face facts here) each dvd was Â£20 for a 1/40th of the show.Gawyn said:The YYH anime has never sold well in this country. Trying to get a TV airing for it was probably a last ditch attempt to get some public knowledge of the product and boost sales for a loss-making product. They couldn't drum up any publicity for it, it's sales didn't improve and the product was dropped/put on indefinite hiatus. All companies do this; there is no point shipping something that is ultimately going to make a loss. ADV did something similar with Get Backers, putting it on hiatus after volume 6 until the sales of the previous volumes picked up enough to make it viable.Conan-san said:YYH has always been a whipping boy as far as over here is concerned.
And I'm not supprised if they just want to drop it, least they contract the MVM desease of trying to get it on tv only to stop production when they can't.
And before you cowtout Naruto into this, (assuming we take everything before the filler) with naruto you were paying Â£20 for a tenth of the show (It'll probably take 10 volumes to cover everything before the time skip, not couting the fillers, Which I hope Manga have sence to skip or just have Jetix air)
Â£200 sounds infantely more pleaseing to the ear than Â£800 any day.
If anything MVM should of gone the Naruto route (and the Toonami edit would work this time wihout extra edits) and had the show air here first and then dvd it exactly like Manga is doing with 'ruto.
Course then again, there's a reason why they don't out the Funi licence any more, after wall -\(-_-)/-
