Sounds like this is basically going to be an import with no dub.

Disappointing.

Yes, highly disappointing I agree. Sad

Still this series is fantastic and highly worth owning, so I will definitely consider it.

Hopefully that premium with vol 6 is an artbox.

Wow, that's more than a little surprising. Murphy's Law is in full effect too, considering I watched the seventh import volume that I received a few weeks ago. The prices for this version are considerably cheaper than the Japanese blu-rays with subtitles.

So yeah, be happy for relatively cheaper prices for what really is an excellent series.

It is odd that they are only selling from a couple of locations mentioned in their press release. Getting it onto Amazon or Right Stuf would greatly expand their visibility to consumers to who may not know of it otherwise.

Just as a side note, that Shiori Kawana mentioned in those press releases was in a Yuki Mori costume for a viewing of the first episode (with an English dub!) at San Diego Comic Con 2013. She went around visiting everyone in line for the panel. Very nice, very cute! Very Happy

The website has the pre-orders up and the store seems functional but the main page says the shopping site is under construction and to not order yet. It's a little confusing.

Oh, they didn't ship UPS. No wonder I didn't know it was on its way.

It actually showed up today. Number 1020 of 2000. It came with a booklet of "posters" and cards of some kind. It's a BD25 if anyone's curious (not unexpected). I don't have the time to pop it in now, however.
