Has there been any word on the GITS Arise dub cast? I think the SAC cast was great, but would Funi bother getting those guys together again?

Why is there no LE version of this? I thought this would be a big seller for them. I've been collecting the imports, but still plan on getting the domestic release, but I really expected an art box.

I wonder if Funi plans to release all the Arise OVAs in one collection? Or all of Hellsing Ultimate in one collection, for that matter.

There was a box with part 2, that holds the first 2 volumes. I already had 1-4 of the steelbooks, released by Geneon, so I just bought part 2 with the box and I'm just going to use that box's empty space to put Part 3 in instead of 1. Not ideal, but it's a solution. Personally, I would rather have had 6 more steelbooks for consistency.


Glad I'm not the only one who appreciates a little consistency.

That doesn't sound like a half bad idea (I also have the steelbooks), but doing that would be make feel awfully silly for spending $35 for the first part on blu-ray. Razz

Yes, it's listed that way on Rightstuf anyway. I hope we either get the SAC TV cast or a new cast from Funi, and not the cast that did The Laughing Man and Individual Eleven movies.

FUNi's already stated that it will be an all-new cast to coincide with the Japanese re-casting.

It doesn't seem like there's an LE or artbox for Index II or Railgun II. Does anyone know any different? I've been trying to cut back on my anime spending, so I haven't been paying close attention to new releases.

Railgun S is being released in the typical part 1 and part 2 discs
there is no art box to hold them together
keep in mind, they are DVD only and part 2 will be released in a few weeks
the rest of the series is being re-released on bluray this winter, so most likely this will follow in late 2015.

Index II, I'm not sure yet. Looks like what they did with Is this a Zombie and Heaven's lost property forte, a slim DVD/bluray combo pack.

I too love the original cast, but I don't really think, at least in Motoko's case, that they would be the right voices for these reinterpretations of the characters.

Personally, I would cast Stephanie Young as Motoko, Ian Sinclair as Togusa, and R. Bruce Eliot as Arimaki. The only one I'd really be insistent on keeping would be Richard Epcar as Batou. That man was *BORN* to play that role.

Plus the fact the first season and all of Railgun seasons 1 and 2 are DVD only kind of has turned me off. Railgun is not as bad looking but Index Season 1 looks god dam awful hardly any better than the fan subs I had back in the day that were AVI before MKV 8 or 10 bit were available
Index I aired in Fall 2008, and 8-bit h.264 .mkvs were widely available, if not the universal norm. Index I was definitely released in that format, and in 720p no less. Comparisons with those TV-fansubs, as well as the Blu-Ray rips that followed, fueled the original grousing about Funi's Index I being DVD-only. Though JC Staff shows from before mid-2013 tended to be animated in ~540p and not look that great on Blu-Ray in the first place.

Good that Funi's making "amends" now, but I have the DVDs and am not about to re-buy the series.
