SOLD!

A shut up and take my money gif would be appropriate for this spot.

It's too bad there aren't English subtitles.

I'm certainly not going to listen to that awful English dub again. I mean, Richard Epcar was good, but that VA for Myung couldn't act her way out of a paper bag.

One of the few stinkers from Animaze.

Lack of English subs are rectifiable with a computer and some know-how. Tempted to get a copy of Plus because god knows what the rights situation is like with that franchise these days.

I need to revisit that dub to hear how Cranston sounded way back when. But I agree, the acting for everyone important isn't solid enough.

However, there are only Japanese-language subtitles available.


ffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff

Why. Why Big West. WHY WOULD YOU PUT ENGLISH SUBTITLES ON YOUR MACROSS RELEASES?! DON'T YOU WANT MY MONEY?!

I'm little confused. Are their going English subtitles for these Japanese release of Macross Plus, or they going keep this strictly Japanese release?

dammit!!!!

This'll be like the fourth copy(ies) of Plus I'll be buying... I've got all the OAV on VHS (GASP!), the movie on VHS, and the movie on DVD (the one with the hardsub.....

on the other hand, after having watched the FB7 movie in theater in Japan, I may have to re-evaluate if it's worth the money to get that or not....

The OVA will come with an english dub. There never was a dub for the movie version as far as I know. There are no subs anywhere on this release.

Instantly pre-ordered. I'm a huge Macross fan and Plus is my absolute favorite. I can't resist box sets either.

CDJapan is an unreliable source of info and makes mistakes in their listings rather often. I any case, it's already been confirmed that English subs are not included.
