Might want to fix that. Wink

Anyway, a Strawberry Marshmallow box set sounds nice. I'll definitely be pre-ordering that one.

wow.....I still have my old copy of The Hakkenden. I thought geneon had lost the license to that one some time ago. I highly reccomend checking that one out when it releases.

Yay for a re-release of Strawberry Eggs. That was the first complete set of anime i bought on DVD. Brings back such happy memories. It is also when I found the joys of Crispin Freeman. May have to pick up El Hazard too this time around. Go Geneon for making my crappy day just a little bit brighter. Razz

No, it's still in print. They have a collected edition that I bought at a TRSI sale about a year ago (although it's still sitting in my unwatched pile....*sigh* Sad )

I just hope that the rereleased versions don't have unattractive markings like "Konami's Best" or "Greatest Hits". If so, then I make an active effort to hunt down the older versions with more attractive box art.

A clerk from one of the anime stores back home, just last weekend, was lamenting the lack of a re-release for the El Hazard OVA's. Methinks he'll be happy to hear the news.

You mean the "Signature Series" label that Pioneer/Geneon added to the cover art? A while back, they were doing this to individual DVD's that they released, but not to collections (the exception being the Bailey box release of Hellsing). I believe that they've stopped doing this entirely, but am not entirely sure. Can anyone confirm this?

Great news, now the only problem is, how to earn cash to buy these anime. Twisted Evil I'll definitely buy the strawberry marshmallow box set ,at least that's for sure.

My main question is when is Geneon going to release an artbox for Shakugan No Shana? I still don't honestly understand why geneon has yet to do so, even though they have released an art box with Fate/Stay Night vol.1.

Hate to break it to you, but Geneon won't be releasing an artbox for the series. All the websites that I use to buy DVD's have never listed a volume+box edition, and the last volume's been solicited for a while. You're not the only one here that's irritated by this move (or lack thereof) on Geneon's part.

I'd like them to sell Patlabor WXIII at a non-Bandai Visual price. Plus a box or thin-pack of Lupin's long overdue.

You can usually find the single disc for cheap. I paid about 15 bucks for mine.

I sold all of my El Hazard dvds for others when Media Play was still around. Trade in get money off something like that. I'd love to buy it again for much cheaper.

I shouldn't be pimping out my work place (but then, I don't work there anymore), but, here:

http://www.paradigm-ent.com/dvd.html

Patlabor Movie 3: WXIII Wasted 13 Special Edition
Regular price: $59.95
Sale price: $24.95

...

Is that a good price?
