They keep pushing the DD set back and back some more. It seems like will never get released.

I think theres a very good chance that date will stick, because by then that other company (whos name I cant remember) will have taken over distribution of their titles.

Allegro Media I think?......Anyway I hope you're right....not for that trash Ikki Tousen, but for the Moribito Blu ray. Hopefully it can actually come out in February.

Zetsuboushita

Looks like those waiting for Ikkitousen Double D's will be getting quite a reduced price. Can't recall last time I saw Media Blasters release a full 13 episode set for $34.99

I have just glimpsed deep into your character. Laughing You made a huge mistake.

But, I don't think that show was enough of a seller to warrant a blu-ray release. Moribito was their biggest hit in some time.

Except that I don't think the distribution system is the problem. I think the problem is that MB doesn't have the cash to physically produce the item and all the associated costs that go with releasing a title. So if there is no product to distribute, it doesn't matter who is controlling the actual distribution system.

However, as an eternally optimistic sort, I'm prepared to be shocked and who knows? Maybe the fourth time will be the charm! Laughing

*AHEM*

Problem is that that date isn't concrete since Bob from RACS has said that Media Blasters plans on releasing it sometime in the first quarter of 2011.

Also, I've never actually watched the show aside from glimpsing at the first episode when it first aired just to see what the hubbub was about. However, it looks so ridiculous that I can't not watch and I might as well watch it HD.

Anime hyper Now, who are you aheming? You're the one crying in a big blue oversized bolded font. And y'got schooled... Sort of.

Anyways, Queen's Blade I personally rank slightly below Ikki Tousen. You see, whereas Queen's Blade lacks any and all shame ever, Ikki Tousen is practically campy about it. For example, a girl gets punched in the face - her panties get shredded. Somebody sweeps the leg, shirts come flying off.

Queen's Blade is just absurdly suggestive. Ikki Tousen practically makes a mockery of it.
