Blu-ray? If not then there is no point in this.

I don't think there has been a BD in japan, so there is no point to sentai to release one (except to have a shitty upscale of the DVD)

What? No, there is definitely a point to licensing Rozen Maiden, regardless of being released on Blu-ray. Rozen Maiden has been out of print for a while and its license was thought to have been discontinued by Funimation.

I don't own the show yet, so I welcome this; I'll be buying it as soon as it's released. Given this news, thankfully I never found the time and money to buy one of the price-inflated OOP sets.

Considering JP doesn't have one, you're SOL with your whining.

Holy...THEY GOT OUVERTURE TOO?

Looks like i'll be double-dipping. Cool

Edit: According to the press release, they're releasing Ouverture separately and that they got the Bang Zoom cast back to dub it so that's even more good news.

Rozen Maiden: Ouvertüre isn't an OVA. It was first shown on Television, it's more a TV special.

I was wondering when this would be license-rescued. I've had interest in wanting to snag Rozen Maiden for a while, but I balked at prices for it being near $100 for a complete series set ever since Geneon went poof years ago.

Wow, that's nice. Last month I tried to get my set of Rozen Maiden complete by buying a Japanese copy of Ouvertüre. It turns out that it is out of print even there. So a subbed re-release is quite special.
