Software company Multimedia 2000 (M2K) announced yesterday that their shipping copies of the long-awaited Bubblegum Crisis boxed set DVD's will likely start shipping today, and will likely see other internet-based mail-order retailers sometime next week. The 8-episode series comes bilingual with extra DVD-ROM features on three discs, arranged much like the newly-released Bubblegum Crisis Collection tapes from AnimEigo.
Meanwhile, Central Park Media announced several pending DVD releases, including Cybernetics Guardian, Heroic Legend of Arislan boxed set, Judge, Revolutionary Girl Utena boxed set, Strange Love ("Hen"), Takegami - Guardian of Darkness, War God, and A Wind Named Amnesia. Last week, Pioneer announced DVD's of Tenchi Muyo!: Tenchi in Tokyo and Fatal Fury.

If this film causes more permanent damage than most Pokémon outings, that's wholly the fault of its main character, Keldeo.
On the whole, The Battle for Doldrey is a mixed bag of strengths and weaknesses. While that may be true of most things, there are few places where those lines are so clearly drawn as in this film.
While Ooku is still a slow moving tale of an alternate past, it also remains interesting and engrossing, particularly as we get closer to the series' starting point. Despite the difficulties inherent in the translation, it is a solid story of what might really have been behind Japan's closed door policy and an interesting study of who might have sat on the throne.
