Denstu is owned by Geneon and are also part of the Bleach staff. So isn't also far to say that Geneon has an equal shot at Bleach? Also is memory servers me right the s-CRY-ed manga came out after the Anime did.

The s-CRY-ed manga came before the anime.

The anime aired in 2001, around when the first tankoubon was released.

As for Geneon, yes, Dentsu was part of the production staff. So was Pierrot and TV Tokyo.

None of these companies have anything to do with who owns the property. Shueisha owns Bleach. The End.

Edit:
Also, Geneon is owned by Dentsu.

Did you just have your facts completely backwards, or what?

Yes, and thanks for correcting me Zac. Considering I tend to do that at times. I am not surprised that I did it once more. Thanks for correcting me. Anime smile + sweatdrop

The Releases database, I presume.

I preferred the runner-up caption for the Robotech contest.

I wouldn't expect to see the Elven Lied OVA episode any time soon - unless maybe as a special feture for some sort of Platinum or Collectors Edition. But then again, I don't really see Elven Lied getting that sort of treatment. If you didn't see the OVA, you really didn't miss anything.

As for the BLEACH thing, remember how long it took for Naruto to be "officially" licensed. I'm sure we're looking at the same thing. Maybe by this time next year, after Naruto's a bit farther along, we'll see it over here. Maybe even later than that. As long as Naruto performs, they can just sit on BLEACH, and have another sure-fire ca$h cow. Why overly saturate the market and compete with yourself?

And Zac, for next week's kittens, how about showing them airing grievances or performing feats of strength around a Festivus pole?

I think it might be the line in entries, "Episode titles: We have x". While it may be obvious to most it means we know of the titles to x episodes, it's not that difficult to misunderstand and think it means we have these episodes for sale. Most people won't make that mistake, but I can see it happening.

Better be an aluminum pole. I find tinsel very distracting. Anime hyper

The captions were amusing this column, the Robotech one being my favorite!

I'm fine with the kittens coming back. I got my puppies one week, that's all I wanted (although I would have prefered a certain character from Baywatch to be left out of the picture). I'm pleased though. Anyway more people seem to like the kittens than the puppies. There was alot of complaints last time.

I prefer the puppies. I equate kittens with demon spawn.

Because there's no motion or sound in a manga, and sometimes I just want to see how they would impute those to the story. And because of the exclusivity. It's one thing to make a new story for the anime, but when it amounts to the fact that anything left out will never ever be animated, I weep a little for lost opportunities.

Hello, Tsubasa haterz. Laughing

Actually, that's a deterrent from me buying manga sometimes. I've seen the anime, and so why would I want to read it in manga form?

Man, the comparisons between the manga and the anime is rather hilarious. Though there's one thing I like about the Tsubasa anime series and that's the producers made Sakura more involved in the events and not be a useless party member (that's the one thing that irked me in the manga).
