Definitely interested in the Code Geass collector's set, a shame it's locked to A but what can ya do, I'm gonna have to invest in a new player sooner than later I guess. Could be interested in Escaflowne too, really depends when AL plan on releasing it.

Just going by the cover, I can tell Jinsei will be a show I'll love. Will definitely be picking that one up.

Is Part 1 of Escaflowne supposed to be listed as A|B|1|4?
The back covers were revealed earlier on as A|B|1|4, with the movie surprisingly being A|1. However the Shop Funi site notes A|1.

I wouldn't mind getting the code Geass collector's edition but I'm a bit concerned about importing it . I'm not sure but it might be illegal as the UK version does have a cut and I'm assuming the American version doesn't .

Kaze version was uncut if that helps.

Plus it's legal to own a uncut/uncensored version as long as it's just for private home use only (i.e. can't use it in public cinemas and such).

Re: [Overseas] US/Foreign Anime News & Announcements

I've actually just looked up what was cut for the first time and it's blowing my mind lol considering some of the crap that gets released, I have no idea why that was deemed unacceptable, apparently it's only a second long too? The mind boggles.

Didn't know the Kaze ones were uncut, I'm probably gonna stick mine on eBay soon and get rid before the US set comes out.

That does help thank you , Depending on what the exchange rate like when it comes out I'll probably buy it .

Re: [Overseas] US/Foreign Anime News & Announcements

Yet another relatively uninteresting month for Funimation. Two rescues across multiple SKUs and reissues/B list titles. I shouldn't really be complaining since it saves me money, but other than Blood Blockade Battlefront I can't think of a single new high profile/well regarded title that they're releasing in the next 3/4 months. I'll probably get the Code Geass LE so I can perform a ceremonial burning of my Kaze BDs, finally freeing my collection of titles from them. Escaflowne is a huge question mark since I've never seen the show, I know absolutely nothing about it and there's also going to be two completely different LE's across two territories for it.

Re: [Overseas] US/Foreign Anime News & Announcements

I really want to get the Code Geass set, but with it so close to Haruhi, Escaflowne, and FMA, there are a lot of big titles out in such a short time that it will be super expensive.

There doesn't seem to be that much more in the set than the regular editions (just a box and some artcards) so if it's out of print by the new year I'll just get those.

Gokudo immediately gets my interest as I have zero knowledge of it annd the sleeve art is full of ANGRY PEOPLE.

There's a comment on Facebook about Rayearth being brought to BD. I hope that doesn't mean BD only, as I'm REALLY wanting to import that one.

When the hell are Discotek gonna release Kyousougiga? Pretty sure I remember seeing the box artwork for it on the site ages ago (in fact I'm sure the artwork for it was what made me go watch it) so I'm curious if it came out and I just missed it or something. >_>

Anyway I'll pick up the Street Fighter II movie for sure.

I'll be picking up both the Street Fighter releases. I've got the animated series on vhs so it'll be nice to have it on dvd.

Discotek do seem to take their time over some of their releases. Still, they seem to be of superb quality recently, so I guess that make the wait worthwhile.
