saw the Code Geass thing coming. i just started this series last night, and so far it's pretty awesome. i wonder how it will be received abroad, given how nationalist it is.

Wow Bandai three out of four shows that I am actually very interested, Ayakashi Ayashi is one of those shows that really went under the radar and I can't wait to see more of it. Toward the Terra has been amazing thus far and I can only think that its going to get better as the show goes on. As for Code Geass I've heard such great things about this show, and I figured I'd wait for Bandai to license it instead of watching subs. Oh boy I can't wait for the dvds to be released.

It has also said that two songs in volume 4 of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya will be sung by Wendee Lee, the English voice actress of the title character Haruhi.


Oh this I need to hear! Cool

Toward the Terra... Awesome. I wonder how much of the manga is included in this updated version. Either way it is the one I am most excited about, the other releases were bound to be picked up by someone or another.

While I do enjoy Code Geass, the first couple of episodes were pretty heavy on the "bad white people destroying Japan" and I could see that as a concern for an American TV broadcast. I don't see it as any sort of a problem for just a DVD release however, but we shall see.

Toward the Terra was one of those series I dropped after about 4 episodes, it was just an uninteresting story with a couple of really irritating-sounding voices. But to each his own, I know quite a few people liked it.

And as for having Wendee Lee sing "God Knows..." and "Lost My Music" I am quite curious as to how that will sound if its true. It will be a bit awkward either way, if its sung by Hirano Aya it won't seem to fit with the English dialog since its a concert in the episode and not Lee's voice. However, having heard it many times in Japanese myself, I think it will also be awkward hearing it sung in English by someone else. However, she has a great voice and I think that it could sound great. If it really bothers you watching the DVD, you can always switch the audio tracks for those couple of minutes during that episode.

OH NO!!

...oh, wait, this isn't the 80's anymore and DVDs have Japanese tracks on them. Crisis averted!

Bandai is playing serious, this is a very strong lineup for 2008(?). This is in heavy contrast to the lack of major announcements at AX just a few weeks ago.

Okay! Geass has been licensed! Yay!

Looking forward to seeing it! It'll probably come out next year, if I'm guessing correctly.

Ooh, nice! I've been meaning to check this one out for a while and it looks like I may very well have my chance. If either [AS] gets it or a miracle happens and I get Sci-Fi or any of the other anime channels out there just in time that is. Mad

Or I could just get the DVDs. Wink
