This is pretty interesting though I think I'd need to see what the price looks like before I'd consider buying it. Since it's literally just a single episode I don't think the release should be over $50 even with LE extras but I guess we'll see what happens

Sounds quite nice, though I can't justify going for it as I'm one of the few people that found LWA boring and mediocre.

If I loved it, this definitely would be the perfect collector's item for me.

Making of Video? Soundtrack? Artbook?

I have a very, very mighty need for this. Depending on price and release date, I might just make this my big birthday purchase.

First, I'm delighted to hear that there is a new kid on the N.A. distribution block - welcome, acttil! I'd be mightily tempted to pick this up assuming the price isn't overly insane. I dug LWA and all those extras seem nifty.

Considering all those extras are coming out with it I MUST have it! But I don't own a Blu-ray player... Boo-hoo for me...

Amazing news. This short and Trigger in general deserves all the support the fandom can provide.

This is just excellent, I honestly don't think I could want this any more. I'm confused, though, is this the company through which Trigger is releasing LWA or is this a localisation with details coming out before the Japanese version somehow? A citation would be nice, ANN.

>_> Well Japan didn't really care about LWA much so I wouldn't be surprised if this is just for America only right now. Trigger definitely pushed this more on American fans once they saw some Americans actually cared about this short when Japan didn't.

Sounds purdy cool, I wonder what they'll price this premium set at.

Is that so? I never heard that, where did ya hear that?

I'd get this if it doesnt cost too much, I liked this short a lot. $50 would be my limit. Would love if this show got a full series somehow

Considering how inexpensive Blu-ray players can be had for these days, I wouldn't think that would be much of an obstacle.

All information was obtained through an official press release. While not explicitly stated, I would assume this is an import. The Japanese Blu-ray was to have English subtitles, after all.

Well dropping that kind of green for just one episode and sub only maybe not be worth it but it was really good

Thanks, the hyperlink in the word 'announced' now directs me to said press release.
