I came across the news on ANN, and I wanted to hear opinions from all of you XD

Over at the ANN forums they are flaming each other and Bandai for the price (30$, sub-only, 9 DVDs, monthly release, probably a 1:1 copy from the japanese ones). So, to my dear fellow members fan of the series, would you support the franchise and spend that money on it?

To be honest, I really don't know. I'm happy because they won't dub it~~ *Akuram is still Akuram* LOL!

It really depends but seeing the website, it's disappointing they won't throw some goodies with the DVD release. For more info take a look at this

They have goodies...if you buy from dot-anime.us ^^; They even offer a 10% discount 8D

Honestly, I'm with Bandai Visual, this title is really nichè we (and they) know that only people already familiar with this title would buy it. And if this title goes well, chances for the other titles will higher. The no-dub is something that will make every fan happy XD

I'm just disappointed that they didn't take the OAVs and movie too. I guess I'm just happy to see a Neo Romance title hitting the US, I have 0% chances to see this in my market TAT; (actually, it's 1% and that is if the TV company decides to take any of them, change all the names, the plot and then censor it, but I'd rather die than see this...)

I'm curious as to what those goodies are...figurines maybe?

Also, dividing up the episodes into 9 seperate volumes? That's basically saying we'll be paying $10 an episode, meaning only 3 on each dvd. I've never seen less than four episodes before...Now I'm just being picky =_=

I'm glad at least I won't have to listen to some horrible dubbed version though~

EDIT: Those fiends are charging $30 for 2 episodes...that's robbery

On the one hand, it's nice to see Hachiyo Sho coming Stateside, and good to know that there won't be a dub, because there was a pretty good chance that they would mess it up pretty good.

On the other hand, $30 a DVD for two episodes does not make me happy. Those "goodies" had better'd be worth it.

But shouldn't we consider the fact that they will barely cover the release costs even with that price, since the sales will surely be poor?

Maybe it's just me, but I think that I can put some extra money to show a bit of support, especially if the release is in good quality (which will surely be since it's 1:1 from the Japanese one)...Yet, this release doesn't affect me so it's all talk from my side...

Please don't think that I'm not going to support, because I assure you I will even though I complain >.<

I have to agree with the fact that they probably won't get a lot of money, but then why'd the license it? I'm sure there will be some promotion for the release, and we don't know, the series might get more popular because of its release in Shoujo beat.

Man, that's way too much for just a two episode Dvd. I would understand if it had 5 or 6 episodes for 29.99 a volume but that is robbery. I like that they don't dub it, since now that I have been into anime for 10 years now I like the Japanese seiyus instead of english ones. I would be happy about the anime being brought over, if it wasn't so high, Cause I can not afford. At least I can afford the manga (Which I prefer.).

I think it is because of the copyright, and it is charging at a standard Japanese DVD price.

So yeah, if you bought the original DVD from Japan, you will expect to pay 3000 yen too.

The reason they're doing this is because Harkua is more of a niche title, like what Geneon used to release before they went under. The way they figure it, the Haruka fans are a bit more hardcore, so they're able to get away with some things (subs only, higher price, less episodes per disc) that they wouldn't be able to get away with with more mainstream releases.

I'm pensive over buying it. Myself, I actually prefer to have the option to have the english language. It is less for me,  and more for the people that I share my anime with. Myself, I'm a fan of supporting voice actors, be they Japanese or English. (Since I've met a few english voice actors and respect their work).

I suppose it will come down to if i like it after rent it. I have a problem buying something when they mess up the subtitles.

I'm just afraid as to what it will turn out to be like.

Most of all, I'm afraid for Akane's voice. If it's not whiny and annoying, I think I'll die of happiness.
