UK Anime releases for 31/03/08

Guyver: The Bioboosted Armour – Vol.5

You know, it would have been fun to see this get released two eps a disc at that old £5.99 price point the original Guyver VHS had. See if that magic could be worked twice.

Ghost In The Shell: Stand Alone Complex: The Laughing Man

It’s the first season of SAC as a film.

Stratos 4: Complete Collection

This got delayed a week. So did other stuff, but I’ll get to that next week.

Fantastic Children: Complete Collection

This is looking like a good deal. £35 RRP for a 26 episode series. Yes, this is the holy grail, an anime TV release with a price point comparable to other 21-26 episode non-anime TV series releases (namely Sony, Fox and Universal releases – the trinity of “gettting it right” in my book). And it’s a good series to boot. Play have it listed as this coming Monday, Amazon a week later though.

Mobile Suit Gundam Seed: Complete Collection Box 1

Insanely, this is also from Bandai, has a lower running time, and is twice the price as Fantastic Children.

Which makes me wonder if a) the listings for Fantastic Children are right or b) Beez are out of their fucking minds.
