just a little late for that isn't it?Smile that's something S'more should've done before they decided to burn their investment money.

personally, as just another old fart of a fan, the inclusion of a dub would've been regarded as bonus and not much more beyond that. For others though... that was probably something of a deal breaker and an instant no buy to them. Can't fault S'more for that. But when you combine that with the treatment it did receive, the negative outcome seemed likely.

mrsatan summed it up nicely - I would have bought it had it been done right.

When the equally old and equally dubless Space Pirate Captain Harlock goes on sale, you will see that one sell to a profitable degree.

^What about Lupin the III season 1 released by Discotek? That's ancient, sub only, and I sure bought a copy. Though being Lupin can count for a lot in this case...
And I've got the first half of Rose of Versailles on pre-order too.

But yeah, I didn't wanna touch this GE999 release with a 10 foot pole (I did buy Discotek's movie though)
