Not sure if I wanna bite either... I don't really need it but Lain is one of my favourites. That and Haibane Renmei kinda changed how I looked at what animated series could do.

One notes that the reported BBFC classification is senior to that of the boxart by six years.
Explained on the podcast. Amazon won't accept TBC and they have to err on the side of caution so submit everything as 18. The provisional box art has what they expect the actual rating to be (hence there being multiple versions of the Angel Beats cover with different ratings for example)

That and the Boxset happens to have the words 'Fractle' on it written in big white lettering.

Ohh.. that was listed as Freezing for a while but has now been corrected again.

Screencaps of the JP release of Lain make the new transfer look amazing, I would love to be able to get that book as well. Is that standard in the US release, or just through RACS?

Time for that Mikan and Nana hype train to start.
I find it funny how Lala and Haruna are featured a lot in that trailer, when they hardly appear in the manga.

I just wonder how censored the anime will be xD

lol yup, if you didn't come for Yami/Mikan or twins action, you might be disappointed. As for the "more important" question, what TV station is it running on?

Momo all the way.

I don't think there has been a mention of the channel yet.

In that case the more relevant part of the question is whether one of "others" is AT-X (generically I would assume it is), in terms of how close the fanservice might be to the original.

Texhnolyze is currently deleted in the UK, although MVM may relicense...

Why? It's horrible!
I liked it... admittedly mainly because of the art direction but I still enjoyed the story too. There are way worse shows that could get the same treatment I suppose.

I think HdE might be the only person I've ever seen express that opinion about Tex. Sure, some people might not like it, but it's too good to be considered "horrible", surely?

I expected quite a bit from Texhnolyze, something akin to Lain, but I was just left miserably disappointed to the point I didn't even finish watching it I was just so bored by it.
