It's great to see there's finally a release date for Juspion. I really hope the release would sell well enough for releases of other Metal Hero Series.

How fast are auch LEs from Nozomi usually going out? (And do they have a no-reprint policy, too?)

Oho, it also has some special features. The French BD had the ovas that weren't on the beez one, but I think it didn't have anything more. Hm. Do I go and get a fourth edition for that then...

Great they are finally putting out Tatami, shame it's not getting a dub as the show sorely needs it.
Nichijou got one later, so who knows.

How annoying! I only just picked up ghost in the shell arise part sets as I couldn't see it being released as a complete series.
What's strange is this has happened twice as I bought Hellsing ultimate parts only for it to be announced as complete series in the same week too.
