Great news, it's always nice to see more people get in to online streaming.

Maybe they will stream Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei? I mean that would be great, seeing as the DVD release is now TBA.

On first listen to Kanokon, it sounds like a late 90s dub where they still don't know to pronounce Japanese names without sounding retarded. It just sounds really, undeveloped. And from what I can tell, neither Kanokon or Queen's Blade will contain the specials.

The dub for Queen's Blade isn't even worth fretting about, there's too much good voice talent on the Japanese side that could never be reproduced.

It is currently streaming... ...in DVD quality and without commercials.

I sure hope they're not telling us the DVDs will look as terrible as this. Wink

Probably so they can be sold in stores without being shrinkwrapped and hidden in the back.

To what stores are you referring? What impact does that have on the show being sold? The specials provide the goods that the shows hint at throughout, they're vital. Since they're targeting these at a demographic, they're missing a key component of the marketability.

I really hope they (Media Blasters) are serious about revamping their website. Right now their website is a total eyesore and a pain to navigate through.

I don't know for Kanokon, but as for QB, the mini-OVAs are confirmed as included from this early photo of the back of the North American case:

In QB's case, there's nothing in the mini-OVAs you can't see in the main show. (Kanokon is a little different, though...)

Like i said somewhere else, it's no surprise considering that Kanokon was dubbed at Arvintel (and they're infamous for Green Green's awful dub...but then again that show was awful as well so i guess it was a perfect match Laughing ).

I can't help but be offended by the fact that Tomoe isn't included on the front cover. I thought she was like....the second heroine of the show!! Confused

...she was discriminated against for not wearing skimpy clothing. Mad

Is there site revamped it still looks the same but is less broken now. I really hope they redo it and lose the pop-up window for it. That is really out of date in terms of web design and it is annoying for people who use tabs and not different browser windows to visit multiple sites at once.

they sure did go cheap on the English audio, not to say I am able to be a voice actor, but I could better than the ones on kanokon, It is a good thing I prefer the original audio with subtitles, and I hope they include the token shorts on kanokon, I will know when I receive the DVD, have it on preorder, and I might be getting it a week early.

I have seen the actual Japanese DVDs of this show, so I know what I am getting into,
