Hmm that's strange the Funimation insert for Basilisk Volume 4 (LE) had this pegged as a march releases with two different versions. One being the uncut version at a MSRP at $39.99 and the spikeTV edtion at $19.99, I wonder what gives for the delay?

So hows it doing ratings wise on Spike TV?

According to this article, it appears that the premiere of Afro samurai was pretty good. However I was unable to find any other rating for any other episodes.

Uncut? Anyone know what will be different in the uncut release? I figure it's probably too early, but I'd still like to ask.

Though, I don't think I like this series ANYWHERE NEAR enough to have it on DVD, even at only five episodes.

Possibly the language, and more time added to the actual episodes. I doubt they made 20 minute episodes. Probably 30 + mins and then cut it down to fit the time allotted

0.7 ratings average for its total broadcast, boosted somewhat last week by following the UFC.
