I take it this game and its associated TV series are to be considered completely distinct from the oriental food company bearing the same name.

There's no point in me entering this, but it's nice to see contests on ANN every now and again I suppose.

Does anyone know if there are alot of subscribers to ANN? Because this could potentially be an easy win for a subscriber considering the statistics, I guess even more of a reason to be a subscriber ;D

I can always use a free Nintendo DS game. I doubt it I will win at all, but I took a chance anyways and entered.

I have a 1/100000 chances of winning, but because I know ANN isn't trying to rip me off (yes I am talking about something specific), I entered.

Again though, there is probably over a trillion people registered here, I really doubt I'll win.

Entered. The odds of winning are probably astronomical, but you never know.

I'm not going to announce the number of subscribers just yet, but I will say that the odds of winning as a subscriber are significantly better.

Seriously, I'd rather a competition for a box set from the publisher of your choice or a $200 shopping spree on Amazon...eh, I guess it's anime-related enough, though the Blue Dragon anime sounds HORRENDOUS. Not even one of those so-bad-it's-good deals.

That is why, if I do win, I am going to sell my copy as soon as possible. I took a look at the actual amount of memebers we have and needless to say, the chance of actually win is quite slim. But I am doing this just for fun.

Also, if shipping is free, then it's a good deal all around. Although the chances of subcriber getting a copy is better, there is a still apresumsibly more subcriber's.

Dude, complaining about giveaways is so lame. If you're not interested, don't enter. Yeesh.

It's psychology, dude. He's complaining so as to dissuade people from entering, thereby increasing his own chances of winning. Nice strategy, actually. Wish I'd thought of it.

I'd enter, but I don't know anyone living in the US who can pick the prize up and mail it on to me. Which is a shame, as I'm generally pretty good at prize draws.

I've never bothered watching the anime, but I enjoyed the XBox 360 Blue Dragon game as a nice, nothing-too-mindblowing, modernized "old school" JRPG with cute graphics, and I have a Nintendo DS, so I've entered the contest on the cheapskate moocher non-subscriber side of things.

Whoops, nevermind. Anime smallmouth;;

<3 I love ANN and I always try to enter contests...but have never won anything before. My fingers are crossed! I love the DS and it's games.

Good luck everyone!
