Sold if it was Blus.


Most of these shows weren't produced in HD. Blu-rays would be pointless.

Now that I'm thinking about it, Gurren Lagann came out late enough where a Bluray release would make a difference, wouldn't it?

In any case, I'm thinking I should probably just wait for the thinpak DVDs, if not a bluray release.

Yeah, pretty sure Gurren Lagann aired in HD. But with the dire financial situation Bandai is in, I wouldn't count on a Blu-ray version ever happening. I'm not even sure the DVD release performed to their expectations.

There aren't Gurren Blu Rays in Japan, so I'd be VERY surprised if they ever came out stateside. Also, Bandai isn't releasing shows that have Blu Rays (Geass and Gundam 00) over here, adding to my frustration. I'd eat a baby for some HD Gurren action, but don't hold your breath.

I just hope to see Gundam 00 blus released in the states so I don't have to import them. That would really burn a hole in my pocket.

Not at all. Their new licenses have slowed to nearly nothing, and they've basically gone on record saying that if their release of the next season of Haruhi doesn't do well for them later this year, they're in big trouble.

shiiiit, if they release it as a set I'll buy. If singles, no.

If they were to release the 0079 Gundam series as a set...that would sell alot :D

Wait, do you mean the next season here in the States?

They deserve it. They continuously try to milk consumers with single (4 episode) volume releases while many in the industry have moved on to 7-14 episode collections, or even full box sets. Bandai and Media Blasters refuse to adapt, and it is proving to be the downfall of at least one right now.

Correct. And how they expect people to actually buy that season and not be pissed off is anyone's guess.

They already *have* moved on to releasing larger collections. Viz, however, with their decision to release Vampire Knight as singles, baffles me.

Haha, you'd have two discs of just endless eight episodes. How worthless. I'd definitely buy a whole set when it was on sale, since I'm a slave to Haruhism.

Ouch, so the chances of Gundam 00 Blu-ray US release is going down quickly then? I'm already having to import Macross Frontier Blu-ray and to have to buy all of G00 S1 and S2 at import prices makes me a sad panda. :(

Fantastic Children would be my third suggestion from this sale. My-Hime is okay, but I was nowhere near as impressed with it as some people seem to be.

Fantastic Children sounds interesting. Like Kirin said, My-Hime is okay, but nothing worth watching more than once. Zeta Gundam is in my backlog. I'll probably receive the three movies from Amazon before I get around to watching the series heh.

When does this sale end? I should be getting my debit card soon (do they take debit cards?). Unless there is a place that sells buy.com giftcards or something. I want a lot on that page ^_^

I also liked Fantastic Children for those who are on the fence about it.
I liked My-Hime more though.

I really want to get the Cutie Honey lunchbox, but $21 shipped is still a bit up there, but I haven't seen it much cheaper anywhere else... I do want Big-O as well...

These sales usually run anywhere from 2-3 weeks to around a month.

The lunchbox can be had for $12.00 + S/H (free on $49 or more).

Well, it seems to be much easier to find it for cheaper than I thought... Thanks!!!
