I doubt that it will ever do well enough, especially in this economy and with the current generation of anime fans, for any company to invest in doing a dub. I think the best we can hope for is that it will do well enough that perhaps we will see the rest of the series released with English subtitles. This is based purely on observation Discotek's past behavior along with the way companies like Nozomi Entertainment handles older titles. No insider information from friends I may, or may not have at either company was used in making this statement. Much like Discotek's release of Hokuto No Ken, the series release would use whatever available dubbing exist from the previous title holder (ADV for Saint Seiya where as Hokuto No Ken was Manga Entertainment) and after that ran out, it would be sub only till the end. That is still a big if it happens.

Well considering that Japan, has to export a shitload of things to not falter in their economy, we might an undubbed version at least.

I like the designs for the cover art. I like how modern the new logo looks.

I agree. They did a really nice job on designing these covers.

Second cover is rather good, but the first could be way better, it doesn't tell so much about the story. Except spoiling that Midgard is Hyoga xD

As I saw all four movies when they were still new, I didn't really think of them from that perspective. I still would love to have them as posters.:)

I love your taste in anime. I'm pretty sure that I own everything on your list. Most in multiple formats. :)

Was there every any anime released on Betamax? Just curious.

YES! Thank you, thank you thank you for saying that! This has to be one of my biggest sources of irritation with newer/younger generations of anime fans here in the United States.

Naw, man, you just don't, like, get it. Like, they should give us everything for free, man.../stupidity

I know what you mean. Thankfully, I haven't seen that as much in recent years (probably because I don't associate with that age group much anymore).

Anywho, does anybody know if we can preorder this somewhere yet?

Yes, I believe so. I seem to remember seeing a few many, many years ago. I also seem to remember titles advertised in magazines like Globian that were listed in multiple formats. I also know several older anime fans who traded/copied anime in the 1980's Betamax.

I'll be buying these, but I'm a bit irritated that neither one features Shun or Ikki on the front.

Beat me to the punch.

I guess you're not from the US or Canada.  If you are, you get free shipping on orders over $50/$100 respectively.

There was a sale for the movies on Rightstuf. I went ahead and pre-ordered them.  If you don't want to spend  $50+ on them, I suggest buying them now.
