Oh, thank goodness I didn't waste $500 purchasing Utena's OOP releases!

This is phenomenal news for me, who never got to see it back in the day. Very Happy

I've only watched part of Utena since the place I rented it from didn't have all the discs. Am excited that Nozomi got it, and that they got the remastered video!

Damn, if they were going to go military, I wish they had snagged Library Wars instead, but whatevs.

Also glad to hear about Junjo s2 and merchandise (so many cute things in that anime), and finally a rough release date for Antique Bakery!

UTENA!!!!!! I was just thinking last night "I hope someone announces Utena at AX." Nice!!! I saw it recently on Anime Network and I fell in love. Totally buying it. Maybe they'll go the extra mile and remaster it a bit???

edit: Ah, just saw it IS the remastered version. Huzzah!

I was literally about to press the button on "purchase" for Utena yesterday. I'm glad I didn't. Sadly, the animation is pretty bad in Utena, but I will be purchasing this. I'm sorry Dirty Pair, Utena gets priority....

They have the remastered video from Japan.

Lovely - I'm glad Soranowoto got licensed, and I'm glad Nozomi got it. When I first started watching it, I thought, "ah, schoolgirl drama against an SF backdrop", but once the plot started moving, it turned out to be an actual SF story after all.

I've heard a lot of good things about So-ra-no-Wo-to, so I will be definitely be picking that one up. I really like the look of the animation and I'm sure Nozomi will do a great job on it.

Utena is also a no brainer. I bet this was the title they've been working on for a while. It was probably a pain to get Enoki on board and get the new masters from Japan. Glad to see it happening!

Not quite as epic as HoTD, but still great. Nice job Right Stuf!

Awe. Some. I loved So-ra-no-wo-to, even if it did have a bit of a cop out ending. Confused I babysat some kids a week ago, and after they went to bed I looked around for a DVD to watch. To my amazement I found the first Utena collection. It was a mind-boggling experience. Apparently, the kids' dad was a crazy anime fan back in the day. I looks forward to being able to see the rest of the show, finally!

Yay, Utena! Watched that over the last year on Anime Network on demand / DirecTV.

Described it to friends as "imagine if someone saw 'The Prisoner' and said, 'The surrealism is great, but you know what would really make this show? Sword-fighting bisexual teenagers.'"

Now all I really need from AX is a license rescue of Royal Space Force at a non-insane price.
