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.

Clannad Along With 4 Other Shows Getting (SHOCKER) DUBS!

Well, in a surprise announcement no one saws coming because none of this information was leaked out earlier this year.

Clannad (season 1), Blue Drop, Ghost Hound, Legend of the Dark King, and Tears to Tiara will all be getting dubs along with a upgrade program for people who bought it subbed earlier.

No word yet on the cast, but expect an announcement soon. Let’s hope the cast is decent. Well, really anything better than the Burst Angel dub is fine by me. I found that to be terrible.

I myself may not be the biggest dub fan, but since I can upgrade for a small fee, I see no reason not to at least upgrade anyways. At least if it comes with some nice extras like commentaries or something.

Asu No Yoichi, Eyeshield 21, And Hell Girl Season 2 licensed by Section23

Yesterday, Section23 announced 3 new licenses to come out under it’s Sentai Filmworks label. this time we will be getting Asu No Yoichi, Eyeshield 21, and Hell Girl season 2.

Currently, Asu No Yoichi Complete Collection is set for May 11, Eyeshield 21 Set 1 is set for May 18, and Hell Girl: Two Mirrors Part 1 is set for May 25.

I know I will pick up Asu no Yoichi and Hell Girl, not sure about Eyeshield 21 since I haven’t ever seen a football anime before  and was never a fan of football anyways. Let’s  just hope that since they got Hell Girl 2, they may get Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni Kai.

Clannad Might Be Getting A Dub

Note: This ^ is not Kotomi. This is Nagisa.

So, according to the cast announcement for Halo Legends, Emily Neves has a credit as Kotomi for an English dub.

Am I surprised? Yes. Do I plan to rebuy if it is true? No. I may like dubs, but Nagisa (Mai Nakahara) is so cute with her current voice actress, and Kotomi’s (Mamiko Noto) is perfect for her.

But, I guess this gives the “I IS NOT BUYINZ A DVD DAT IZ SUBZ OWNLIES BECAUSE FANSUBS R FREE ALL REDDY” a reason to not say that anymore. Not that they would buy it anyways because obviously they have no respect for the companies anyways.

I guess we may be hearing something about his soon though since most anime companies seem to have a hard time keeping things secret. (This is a prime example)

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.

Dreaming Out Loud AMV

Sentai Filmwors To Release Maria†Holic

Maria†Holic was a favorite of mine that I wasn’t able to finish earlier this year when it was on. The fansubs were barely ever on time and the translation quality seemed pretty bad at times when I saw things that wouldn’t even have a Japanese language equal such as “yall” or “OMG.” But in February I will finally be able to finish watching Maria torture Kannako.

Sentai Filmworks has licensed it for release, meaning it will more than likely be sub only, which I don’t mind since the VAs in Japan are really good in this. But if it were Dub, it more than likely would lose money since this is a relatively unknown title in the US right now.

If you plan to buy it, the Full collection will have an MSRP of $39.99, but expect to be able to find it for at least $10 cheaper at many places.

Also, remember this, it’s a trap.

Hidamari Sketch, Glass Mask, and Neo Angelique Abyss Licensed By Section23

Hidamari_Sketch_x_365Well, 3 more anime titles were licensed by Section23. Hidamari Sketch, Glass Mask, and Neo Angelique Abyss are all set for a January 2010 release.

Hidamari Sketch is more or less a slice of life show, which I like for some reason. So I will probably pick it up. There isn’t much of a story, except a girl named Yuno goes to the Art School she wanted to get into and she lives her life with her friends there.

Glass Mask is the story of Maya and Ayumi competing in the performing arts to be the best I think. I don’t know if this will be good or not, so I may skip it if it sucks and gets bad reviews.

Neo Angelique Abyss is another monster of the week show I think. Angelique is a normal girl until she discovers she is a purifier I think, and they kills these life draining monsters called Thanatos.

Over all, the licenses may be good. Hidamari Sketch is one I look forward too, but not sure about the others yet.

Full press release is just a link below.
