So over the last 2 weeks I've managed to get the Complete Collections for Lucky Star and Cowboy Bebop Remix for about $25 each! Gotta love local used DVD stores!

Nice, I was able to score Lucky Star from gohastings for around $20. Also got really lucky and found Ghost in the Shell 2 Innocence on bluray for $12 used.

Dam, you hit the jackpot on that one. You had a better chance being hit by lighting than finding one of those and that was before Bandai went kaput. :lol:

I officially have every US released gundam series and movie. And a total of 47 complete series and 6 Banzai bluesy movies still searching for gurren lagann and the girl who leapt through time. Most I got cheap some I paid through the nose for to get but I'LLC be done with those two I already have the currency lagann movies. Just need the series and the girl who leapt through time.... doubt I'll find that one I want the bluray.

I have little doubt FUNimation and Sentai are already trying very hard to get most of Bandai's licenses. Hell, I wouldn't be surprised if we hear some license rescues at ComicCon.

I hope so it is sad to see dvd vols go for 100-300 range only.

How is Heroic Age i watched 2-3 eps so far and seemed cool. The mechs seemed so generic tho.

I have almost every Gundam, I'm only missing 0079 that I can think of (I regret passing on them, so I'm just watching out for them)... I'm also missing Unicorn, but the prices are outrageous for the Blu Rays.

Fine by me. I already have Parts 1 and 2 from Bandai. And it's easier to condense 4 DVDs than 6 Blu-rays. Substationally cheaper too.

The only reason im debating it is for the cash. I know I won't do it. But the thought did cross my mind. The blus are gorgeous btw if anyone is wondering. I haven't seen the dvds but I can't recommend the blus enough if anybody is on the fence about going one way or the other. But if your just starting those dvds are cheap enough that you could always resell them and go for the blus later... BTW I FOUND THE GIRL WHO LEAPT THROUGH TIME TODAY! Now all I need from Bandai is Gurren Lagann the tv series. I have the movies... Although that new Gurren Lagann blu ray set looks amazing... but not 5-600$ amazing.... I wish someone would release it here I'd go in at around 100$

I found a copy of zeta gundam collection 1 for $24. Was that a pretty good find? The store also had the 4 G Gundam collector boxes for $20 each. I'd like to get that series as well, but $80 is too much for me to drop on a series.

Anime Boston 2013: Sunrise Announces Code Geass: Akito the Exiled 2
May 25, 2013 by Mike Ferreira Leave a Comment

At their panel at Anime Boston 2013, Sunrise announced that the second episode of Code Geass: Akito the Exiled will be released in Japan this summer. The series will consist of four episodes in total. They are currently working on bringing the original Code Geass TV series to America in the near future.

The company also revealed that, while it isn’t official yet, they are negotiating the US rights to both Tiger & Bunny: The Beginning and Tiger & Bunny: The Rising with Viz Media. Tiger & Bunny: The Rising, will hit Japanese theaters on February 8, 2014.

According to the panelists, NIS America will announce the Blu-Ray edition of Love Live! in the near future.

Sunrise is currently in negotiations with FUNimation and Sentai Filmworks for the distribution rights to titles that were formerly released by Bandai Entertainment.


SUNRISE will be releasing former Bandai Entertainment titles themselves. Details forthcoming. #animeboston


They'll be partnering with local companies: FUNi, Sentai, etc. everyone in the damn room wants COWBOY BEBOP blurays.

BEI titles are going to be distributed by Sunrise... Talking with Funi and Sentai... Looked for fan preferences


Sounds like they thought deal would be fixed by this point


Sunrise also thought Cowboy Bebop Blu-ray negotiations would be further along

SUNRISE is willing to distribute #Bandai titles & are negotiating w/ @SentaiFilmworks & @FUNimation. @AnimeBoston requests Bebop!

Sunrise confirmed at Anime Boston that FUNimation and Sentai have both licensed a bunch of old Bandai stuff. Most likely we will hear some announcements at ComicCon.

Well I'll be damned if we can get Ronin Warriors on DVD. I missed out on the set when it came out and now it's rare as heck.

Edit: I'd sure love the Escaflowne and Bebop Blu-rays as well.

I don't understand why they picked up Brain Powered and Z-Mind. BP had meme potential, but Z-Mind is such wasted potential it's not even funny. If you're gonna put a giant robot series in the 70's, you might want to have something 70's-ish besides one of the girl's horrible fashion.

I hope they were simply package deals for Ryvius, Big O, and s-CRY-ed.

Guess I'll have to sell my Witch Hunter Robin collection. I'm surprised there was no mention of Gundam. I would love to have a blu-ray of Gundam 00 including the movie. Very psyched for Code Geass!
