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. >_>

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.

Patience is a virtue. They had some catalogue titles that needed sorting out first (like Magic Knight Rayearth which has a ton of content on its Blu-ray release (and yes HdE it's also coming to DVD) and also Street Fighter II's film which was supposed to come out end of last year).

I would guess Kyousougiga will arrive before the end of early 2017.

I vaguely recall reading that Gokudo is a Slayers like fantasy comedy thing, though I'm not sure it has exactly the same kind of comedy.

Hana Yori Dango sounds interesting. Despite being an older Shoujo story, it apparently avoids many of the issues that the genre can run into and offers a bit of a different experience. It sounds like it could also be a bit of a rough ride too (I'm not sure if it's in a good way or a bad way, possibly both).

Fair enough, I only watched half of it as I wanted to wait on on the BD to watch the rest but I guess I'll just watch the rest of it now. Will still most likely pick up the BD though.

I just looked up the show's wikipedia page. Sounds like a hoot! Let's see what state the pound is in when it's released, and maybe I'll nab it.

If you like anti-heroes, then there few better done than Gokudo Yuccot Kikansky. He's selfish, amoral, disloyal and extremely flatulent.....and those are his good points.

The torment continues. Why not accompany "September" with a positive integer within range [1, 30]?

Media Blasters news

Yamibo will be coming to blu-ray. They will make sure it is not the blurry TV version and will provide an option to upgrade from DVD. No M&E track so it won't be dubbed.

That's good news.

I should honestly pickup their Blu-rays, I actually quite liked what I heard of the dub for LvB.

Nice, I'm glad I apparently forgot to reorder the DVD set after it was first cancelled back in 2014 now.

Dynit has recently hinted that they plan to release Uchū Senkan Yamato 2199 (as Star Blazers 2199) on Blu-Ray in Italy.

Source: http://animeonbluray.blogspot.com/2016/ ... -2199.html

Some japanese interview also stated a release is planned in some other European countries and the USA as well.

Lol
MPEG2 can be just fine on Blu-Ray since the data flow output limit is fairly high, the downsides are the larger filesize (so it ends up on 2 BD50 instead of one BD50 + BD25 for a one cour show)

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

Now, that would be REALLY neat, if Yamato 2199 arrived in Europe in some form or another. It'ss a show I'd love to get my hands on, but the outlay it entails at present makes it more hassle than it's worth.

RUN! IT'S GOJIRA!

Funimation announced two new things over at San Diego Comic Con panel.

Cn7vWYqUsAAnSaR.jpg


Ergo Proxy will be released on Blu-ray in 2016 to celebrate the show's 10th anniversary. All 23 episodes in one set. The regions will be A only as MVM acquired the UK rights during the initial DVD release.

Hideaki Anno's Shin Gojira (Godzilla Resurgence) has also been picked up. More news is expected shortly. The live-action Japanese film will be in Japanese theaters on July 29th.

I will definitely buy Knights of Sidonia: Battle for Planet Nine , hopefully Animatsu will release it here but I doubt they will , I don't think season 1 sold very well .

Do we know for sure whether MVM have Bluray rights though? This could be a similar case to Baccano as the Blu-ray box wasn't released in Japan until July 2012. MVM started releasing the show in August of 2007.

Nah, it's an NBC Universal Ent. Japan title. Usually they end up being A only (though recent titles like Rage of Bahamut, Seraph & Arslan say otherwise). Unless of course Funimation decides to make their sets B compatible for MVM.

Grav, could this be a potential release for Universal in the UK? Just wondering or do you think MVM have BD rights?
