    Expelled From Paradise looking damn pretty there. Shame it wasn't a very good movie. :(

    Question why has this release took a year after the US Release to come out?

    I quite enjoyed Expelled from paradise, will defiantly pick this up at some point.

    Probably because (I'm guessing) it's a sublicense from a US distributor, so they likely got the licence when the US distributor was already well into production so they already had a huge head start. That and, seeing as it's an LE, AL would have to wait on getting materials from Japan, getting it all designed and approved and then going through QA, trying to make sure it's a good release and not rushed out the door to appease impatient people. Oh, and also because they're an incredibly small team of about 5 people and not a giant company and they also have a ton of other licences and releases to think about at the same time.

    At least it is a title I've never cared enough to import so I will eventually get ALs. (AoA was the US distributor btw)

    While i did enjoy the film, i'll wait for a sale on it or for the standard edition.

    Simple - Aniplex.

    If I remember right, the announcement was October and the original date was January.

    Granted this release was probably pushed back due to the booklet which seems to have more content that the US Limited Edition I own. So 6 months due to the Collector's packaging and booklets seems reasonable.

    Aniplex causing problems for international distributors? Shocker.

    I don't know much about this movie but it's never appealed to me from the promotional artwork.

    Looks good, having missed out on the first sets box I'll be sure to make sure I get this one.

    Its alright still undecided due to the lack of OPs

    Well you're probably not gonna get an English friendly Blu-ray release that includes the original OP ever but hey, if you want to let that stop you then...

    Trust me, I've already had this argument, it's not worth it. His justification is the pirated version has the OPs, and he doesn't want to buy the legal version because it's a little worse off than the actual release...

    I LOVE the OPs Yes. I probably will buy it like 70% likely but the OPs are a massive loss.
    I preordered to own my 3rd top gundam.
