Canaan BluRay May Not Ship On Time (But Only If You Didn’t Order From RightStuf)

So, as you may have read from the title of this post which comes 2 months after my last post, it seems that the BluRay version of Canaan is only shipping if you ordered it from RightStuf. Amazon has stated that they didn’t receive any copies and are put on a 2 month backorder until further notice. Many other people in this thread on ANN are stating they had the same or similar happen to them with other stores.

Just getting a warning out for those who happened to be waiting for a shipping confirmation from Amazon and didn’t receive one. I myself hit them up wit ha question and got an answer back quickly, so that’s how I know about the backorder. Just gonna cancel my Amazon order, pay the extra $6, and wait a a couple extra days I suppose to get it from RightStuf since at least they should ship it out accordingly.

Also, to those who are all “LOL, YOU MAD? I HAZ MUH COPY ON DUH DVD!” Fuck you and your toilet. Ok, not really, but I am still mad.

The Melancholy Of Haruhi Suzumiya season 2 US release details

Well, it’s about time. We finally have a US release date for  the Season 2 box set and it is August 17, 2010.

It will include both English and Japanese voices, English ssubtitles, location scouting videos, Behind the scenes of a music video by Aya Hirano, promo videos, commercials, all the episodes of the Adventures of the ASOS Brigade, and a CD with the opening and ending.

MSRP is $64.98, but we all know it will be cheaper on most sites anyways. Hell, Amazon already has it listed for $44.99

This is a day 1 purchase for me, thats for sure. And it seems there are plenty of people excited for the release on facebook and a couple of the forums I have been on, even if Endless eight is on there. But, we will find out how many people actually buy it come August.

Yen Plus To Go Out Of Print

But it will be online for free. They have just decided to go to an ad based service online to cut down on cost and to make the kids that refuse to buy anything happy. They be publishing the individual manga volumes though, so don’t worry, they aren’t taking everything off the shelves.

As for people that subscribed, you will get your money back. So everyone is happy in a way. I myself am saddened to see another manga anthology magazine going out. But I guess as long as the company stays, it will be fine.

Gurren Lagann Films Coming This July From Aniplex USA

Well, we now have the Gurren Lagann  movies up for pre-order exclusively from Bandai’s store online. But that is fine by me since I have been wanting to get this for a while.

The movies are re-tellings of the show with new footage. Typical for a Japanese anime movie based on a popular title that isn’t a shonen one. Some of these movies are good, some aren’t, but fans will buy them anyways.

Currently, the first one is set for release on July 1st with the second one coming out July 30th. So both in the same month.

If you are looking to pre-rder them, the links are below.

Freak Out Fridays: Keyboard Smashing!

This time we have Angry German Kid played to some anime OPs and EDs. Seems to be a perfect fit to me.

The Disappearance Of Haruhi Suzumiya Licensed By Bandai

More great Haruhi news announced today. Bandai has licensed The Disappearance Of Haruhi Suzumiya for US release later this year.

Bandai has once again proven to be great to me.

Currently the only place it is announced for theatrical release is Hawaii. Not really sure if this is the only state, but if it is, that sucks.

Haruhi Has Now Invaded Crunchyroll

Well, now Haruhi is available to all without the need  to steal it like many people will surely do anyways. Crunchyroll has added the original Haruhi anime to it’s line-up.

While this isn’t much help for me (I already have all the DVDs) it is helpful for those who haven’t seen it and are trying to save money. Hopefully this will get more people excited about the coming DVD release of Season 2.

Currently the first 4 episodes are  up, the rest will be up later next week.

True Haruhi Season 2 Cast Announcement

Well, I guess I was wrong about the cast. But I don’t mind. I enjoyed the original Haruhi dub and definitely liked the original English Yuki more.

For those who don’t want to watch the video and never saw season 1, here is a list of the VAs for main characters.

Kyon- Crispin Freeman

Haruhi- Wendee Lee

Yuki- MIchelle Ruff

Mikuru- Stephanie Sheh

Itsuke- Johnny Yong Bosch

SO yeah, even though Cristina Vee won’t be Haruhi, I am still happy since I know the dub will be good. But after all this, I wonder if Bandai will be using the English version of the opening that Cristina did or or if they are just using that as part of the promotional videos.

Trigun Being Re-Released This Fall on BluRay and DVD By FUNimation

This is the first “new” anime for FUNimation announced at Katsucon this weekend. Vash The Stampede is already returning for a movie in Japan, so maybe this move is a hint that maybe FUNimation has interest in acquiring the rights for that movie.

Currently, the DVD version is set for Fall of this year, but no word on whether that means the BluRay version comes out at the same time. I guess we will find out soon when thye send out the information to retailers for pre-orders.

The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya Season 2 Officially Announced For US Release

Well, after all the teaser videos and page source stuff, they have finally announced that the second season will be coming out in the US sometime soon. The best part is that it is a box set.

As I am sure most of you have realized I am a big fan of Haruhi, so I will buy whatever they release that is related to this. Hopefully we will see a collectors edition or a BluRay release too. But either way, I am just glad I won’t have to wait for too much longer to finally watch season 2, even if that means watching Endless Eight (which I think might be interesting unlike some)

K-On! And Haruhi-Chan Manga Licensed Along With Bungaku Shoujo Novel

Yen Press has announced today that it has acquired K-On!, the Haruhi-Chan manga, and the first light novel of Bungaku Shoujo. All I can say is that I am excited about all 3.

I myself normally only get certain manga since I am typically turned off by the chaotic mess that is an action scene in manga, but being able to get K-on! and Haruhi-chan is great. Bungaku Shoujo is another thing I am looking forward too since it is a light novel. Light novels tend to hold my interest more than manga since they take longer to complete and I can picture it in my mind the way I want to see.

Currently Bungaku Shoujo is set for July, Haruhi-Chan is set for October, and K-On! is set for November.

The Disappearance Of Haruhi Suzumiya Theme Song Music Video Posted

I don’t really like this song, but that might be because I am so used to more upbeat songs being paired with Haruhi Suzumiya. But, I guess it matches the film.

Haruhi Season 2 English Cast Confirmation?

Well, if the video above is true the cast for the females are as follows

Haruhi Suzumiya – Cristina Vee

Mikuru Asahina – Karrie Shirou

Yuki Nagato – Gina Li

Though, Gina and Karrie may just be people filling in as cosplayers, so they may or may not be the Voice actresses for those 2 characters. I can’t guarantee Cristina either.

But, either way, they sounded decent, but I will be royally pissed if Crispin Freeman (Kyon) and Johnny Yong Bosch (Itsuke Koizumi) are replaced. Just saying Bandai may have to watch out if something happens to them being in the cast.

Section 23 Gets Gintama, Living For The Day After Tomorrow, And Hidamari Sketch X 365

I never started watching Gintama on Crunchyroll, but I might as well pick up the DVDs when they are released. If you want a summary of Gintama, you can go to my earlier post here.

Hidamari Sketch X365 is a continuation of the first season and it takes place in Yuno’s second year of school.

Living For The Day After Tomorrow Shoko wanted to be older, and she gets that wish, but at the expense of Karada, Shoko’s brothers ex-girlfriend, losing year on her age. Now the 2 are the same age and must get along in Junior High. Can they make it threw together though.

All these will be coming out in April, with Hidamari Sketch X 365 Complete Collection being $39.98 Along with Living For The Day After Tomorrow being the same price. Gintama Collection 1 will also be the same price.
