That's great news, I have yet to pick up Big O and the existing DVD prices have increased significantly above MSRP. It would be fantastic if Sentai could release a blu-ray edition of Big O -- surely there are more than enough fans to justify a blu-ray release if the current DVDs can go for as much as they do.

Aren't Sentai's releases rather pricey, though? Still, it will be good indeed. I have yet to see The Big O at all.

The news about the Gundam franchise is very exciting, to say the least.

Not sure about Sentai's prices, but whenever their Big O set (or sets) hit it's bound to be less than the asking prices for the most recent Big O dvd releases. The current asking prices for the Anime Legends editions are $70 for Vol. 1 and $80 for Vol. 2.

Usually, but I have seen their releases sold at certain retail stores as well.

Hastings, and Fry's in particular (there used to be one last Suncoast nearby that May have had some, but it finally closed down).

At the Fry's I work at I have seen these:

Irresponsible Captain Tylor (new single DVD sized case)
Jujo Romantica
Dirty Pair (collection 1)
Princess Nine (they recently got the license IIRC)
2 other rather recent releases from Lucky Penny & Nozomi (will look again to see what they are)

Ohhh! that's interesting. Pretty intriguing concept in the manga, but I dont think its been running long enough to see how it pays off. At this point i can only picture the anime as incomplete or rushing an ending.

Gundam Wing Is Finally Coming to Blu-ray in the US


I figured it was only a matter of time. I'm happy for fans that never got it before, but I'm not going to double dip on this...I fully recognize that Gundam Wing was a hit when it first aired on CN back in 2000. I had already seen a few Gundam series, but I think a lot of Western fans like it simply because it was aired first (and was most fans first exposure to that genre). --Now I'm not going to say CN, Bandai USA (whoever) didn't make a smart move, I mean they had access to release any Gundam Series from the original up through X, whatever market research lead them to release Wing first seems to have worked, for a time at least. (Kind of like how WEP back in 1983 chose GoLion from any number of dozens of Super-Robot shows to adapt as the first Voltron) .

But I'm curious to see, some 17 years later, and now that the majority of the Gundam Series are available, how fans will rank Gundam Wing. Will Nostalgia be strong enough to still make it their Favorite, or will time, and other series, have knocked it down a few pegs? I still find it enjoyable, but I can think of at least 5-6 series off the top of my head I'd place above Wing in my own Gundam Ranking.

Also I find it odd that Section 23 and not Sunrise (Bandai's affiliate) is releasing The Big O...wonder what happened there...

Bandai Entertainment (the US arm of Sunrise/Bandai) shut down several years ago. They never really came back after the anime boom went bust in the late '00s. All the iconic titles that I know of were scooped up by various distributors, like how Funi got Cowboy Bebop.

Anyway, can't wait to buy this new release of The Big O and replace all those single disc volumes taking up space on my shelf!

Yeah that's part of the problem I have...I cant really afford to double-dip, but I understand the need to conserve space, I just reorganized my media collection this weekend and space is getting thin. In the case of Gatchaman it was easy---Going from 27 DVD's (9 Box sets), down to 3 Blu-Ray thick-packs saved me almost and entire shelf. Most of my Gundam releases are original Bandai Ent's individual DVD's. I'd love to slim them down, but cant afford to repurchase them all, but I am glad the new sets are in 2 volumes for the most part.

In many cases the newer releases are much much cheaper than buying all those singles.
Of course back when they sold them that way, the releases were usually spaced out over a couple years (or at least one year). Which made it seem less painful.

I have consolidated a few of my older singles down to the newer slim cases, and it makes a ton of difference.
You can always try to sell the singles online, or try to sell them to a used store.
Though some places won't take the singles unless it's a boxed set.
Of course if you are desperate you could sell them to HPB, but don't expect much $.
Or better yet (if you are a generous person) you could donate them to your local library so other people can enjoy them.

That's probably what I will do (if DVDs are still used by then) when I leave this life...of course I hope that is a LONG time from now.

There is a local chain that buys/sells used media, I've done this on a few occasions, and all my sets are complete...Its just as you said however...Originally if I paid $15 each for all 10 volumes of Gundam Wing, that's $150.--The DVD's still work fine despite being over 15 years old. If I sold them, I'd probably get --*maybe* $10-$15 for the whole set, and if the BRD is released in 2 volumes, which combined will probably cost $80-$100 to purchase all over again, not worth it to me in that case...

I may look on eBay to see if anyone is purchasing them, but I doubt it.

‘Blame!’: Netflix’s Adaptation of Japanese Manga Cyberpunk Masterpiece Gets a New Trailer and Release Date — Watch
Tsutomu Nihei's beloved series makes its way to the streaming service on May 20.
Michael Nordine wrote:Manga fans displeased by the changes made to “Ghost in the Shell” for this year’s live-action adaptation starring Scarlett Johansson (whom you may have noticed is not, in fact, Japanese) might have something to root for in “Blame!” Netflix has released the trailer for its take on Tsutomu Nihei’s beloved manga, which we’re assured has long been considered “visually impossible” to adapt. Watch below for a glimpse of how the streaming service fared.

Finally: Funimation will release Outlaw Star on Blu-Ray this summer!

Great for folks who don't have this long out of print Toonami classic, but I'm still happy with my black box with gold lettering set from the early '00s. One of my earliest DVD purchases! I mowed lawns that summer to buy that and Rhino Home Video MST3K single releases!
