OK...stupid question time. Does anyone know what the difference is between Hello Kitty Sanrio Paradise and Hello Kitty Paradise? (Other than the fact that Sanrio Paradise was just announced and Paradise has been out on DVD for awhile.)

That's my question Wink I'm wondering why they would be announcing a license to something that they already have out on DVD. (My daughter is a big Hello Kitty fan so we own all the ADV DVDs that are out...we'd own the Fox Family ones too, but the quality is extremely crappy.)

Yeah, I tried looking it up, and I don't think there IS a difference. I don't know why they would be announcing something they already had. I commend you for managing to sit through the Hello Kitty dvds, they are quite painful to watch if you're not like 3 years old.

The news of the Getbackers license finally making it to the US is pretty awesome....love the manga and the GBA games.

Yeah, Getbackers is a great show. I figured the anime wouldn't be too far behind since the manga just came out.

...though, and I don't even know if such an argument is valid anymore, I'd never have expected ADV to pick it up. Had my money on Geneon, just in terms of the kind of show GB is, and because of the fact that they got their hands on most of the rest of the 2003-04 <A href="http://www.geneon-ent.co.jp/rondorobe/anime/index.html">Rondo Robe</A> line...

Gatbackers reminds me alot of L/R which is why I also thought that geneon would snap it up.

I was also hoping that either Bandai or Geneon would get Mezzo TV, but im not all that bothered as long as there is a really fast turnover time Very Happy

Yeah, I'm pretty stoked for Mezzo to hurry up and get stateside. The eps I've seen so far have been awesome!

It's actually not all that bad. They're pretty good shows. They only get annoying after watching them 10 times.

The problem here is that they got the name wrong in their news post. The title is Hello Kitty Sanrio WORLD, not Paradise. This is a different series than Hello Kitty Paradise.

Ooops ^.^;

I actually called you guys today to get the three titles confirmed, along with the manga titles (which we didn't post because they were read too fast for us to catch on site), but I didn't get an answer yet.
