Ha, in this economy? I highly doubt that. We are in a bad resession.

I didn't see Lucky Star there anywhere though.

Whee! Haruka's on the list! Allelujah! I wonder if it'll be dubbed? My favorite anime! If it DOES get dubbed, I hope Crispin Freeman gets the part of Yorihisa! He'd be perfect! Very Happy

Looks like the original Aim For The Top! didn't make the cut.

Well this is good to hear for fans that wanted these in the first place. Wings of the Honneamise was one that I wanted to pick up, hopefully they will drop a little in price. I wonder if they will rework any of these, like dubs and such. Bah, it's to early to tell. They might just be making these available to help cover costs.

Didn't Patlabor get another remaster recently? Maybe they are going to release those instead.

Aim for the Top! 2 Diebuster is on the list as Gunbuster 2. Both versions of the Gattai movie are also. Just the original series is not.

Whats so special about all of these that makes them have the insanely high price? Like Blu-Ray seems fair for it to be pricy, but majority of these are DVD or the now dead HD-DVD and aren't even boxsets. Is there any logical reasons to spend $50 on a single DVD, when you can get a whole 49 episode series for the same price?

Glad to see THEY'RE STILL CHARGING THE JAPANESE PRICES. Haha, GG Bandai, but you're still not going to sell those unless the prices are dropped to acceptable levels.

Despite Gunbuster's appeal and fandom, 6 episodes of is only worth a max of $19.99.

Some of the prices are still the same! WTF? How about dropping some of those. Come on Bandai Ent.! You're better than that!

I hope so, too. I bought the first Freedom DVD but didn't buy the others because this economy is killing me! I can't afford $40 for one episode. Why can't they just put several episodes of Freedom on one disc & sell it for $40?

You'd think at the very least they'd drop the prices on the HD discs considering it's basically a dead format now.

Lucky Star is a Bandai Entertainment title, so it's uninvolved in this relisting-
What this is is Bandai Ent. taking over distribution of Honneamise/Bandai Visual USA's properties, BVUSA being a seperate company with the same parent company back in Japan.

Confusing, but basically, any Bandai Ent. titles will just keep going as is.....
