Huzzah! It's been ages since I've seen the original, and I've never seen Zeta!

I own the rest. Feel free to mock me, I am unashamed!

Are they streaming the edited dub or a sub of Mobile Suit Gundam?

That's terrific. It has been years since I've seen the original and I've wanted to watch it again for a long time. I can't wait!

Yeah, as I thought, that price per disk is pretty expensive for Western tastes.

No X, Turn A, Victory, or ZZ. It should be painfully, to the point of all of your limbs breaking, obvious why.

From what I can tell it's about 50 bucks per Blu-ray with a single episode on each.

That's pretty bad. I know the prices for stuff in Japan are high but that's retarded. 50 bucks for a single episode? Come on. I know it's Gundam but I am not buying at that price.

Bandai has no Taste, letting Seed Destiny though but not Turn A/X?

It's great to see Gundam get some loving over here. Streaming Gundam is a great idea.

However, the price of one episode of the new OVA on Blu-Ray is pretty steep. For that price, it better be the greatest Gundam anime ever animated.

Sweet Amazon is listing it. Had mine preordered from CD Japan for a month now but I think I'll cancel it...

I don't want to flame you beyond that seems necessary, but any simple search of the internet will reveal to your brain that those series are not licensed in the United States or the United Kingdom/Britain/England, whatever you chaps call yourselves these days.

Is that so hard to understand?

Okay does Bandai need a major slap in the face. Your price point is to high for a 50 Oav. I guess I will be waiting for Right Stuff to get it even if I have to wait a year. I love Blu-ray but not at the price point, hell none of my DC or funimation Blu-ray cost that much

It's already listed on Amazon and it's $34.99 not $50.

$50 is the MSRP. Amazon discounts their pre-orders by 30%, hence the $35 sticker price.
