We have an Australian release that has English subs, but it's not on BD.

Oh, if only there was a way to combine both English subs and BD and not cost ~$240 before shipping!


There is, just wait for the Funimation release.

I don't know...it doesn't too promising to me (from FUNimation). FUNimation removed all of the streaming episodes a while back. In all likelihood, FUNimation probably only had partial streaming rights to this series.

Why would Funimation put out CCS? CCS has failed 2 times in the US.

Read the quotes again. It's about Black Rock Shooter, not CCS.

Darn, I was sort of hoping this second part would come with box big enough to put the first part in as well, but it looks like no dice. Sad

The OP only lists Millennium Actress as being available as part of the Anime Classics omnibus release with Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust and Spriggan.

Quite aside from Millennium Actress being in a class of its own, it's available on it's own from Madman here and it's currently in stock.

Here's the cover:



I am a proud owner of this release. Wink

I have Millennium Actress added to the list (the U.S. release has been hovering in and out of print).

Thanks. It may be worth noting that the Madman release contains the Manga UK dub which was never part of the US release.

I seem to recall reading somewhere that the UK version had a few minutes edited out. Is this the case for the AU version as well? I would love to have a dubbed version, but not if they cut out something important.

Do you know if there's any news on a Nichijou release date?
