Mark It on Your Calendar!

May 29th, 2007. A day that will live in Otakudom.

Yer dern tootin’ I’m pre-ordering. Ok, not the artbox, because I have no use for the cosplay hair ribbon. As the Stainless Steel Brat would probably point out, “Baldy McBaldsAlot” has no need for one.

    Now her, I can’t let have the hair ribbon. I have enough trouble as it is.

    Her school knew what it was doing when it denied her permission to name the anime club “The SOS Brigade.” She definately didn’t need any encouragement.

  3. It’s a disease. I see something that says “limited edition” and I immediately think “I should buy that right away.”

    It’s SUCH a disease, I should get money from the government.

    The me from a year or so back would have definitely sprung for the LEs, but these days I’m a bit more tight-fisted. Just the regular editions for me, thanks, and TRSI is due to have a Bandai sale sometime between now and the Promised Day, so I won’t be preordering just yet.

    I like how RACS lists the genre as “Comedy/Supernatural”…

  5. From the picture, it looks like the special box even has room in it for manga volumes.

    Yay! I’m posting at bridgebunnies



    Regards the origin text of Haruhiism ….I can’t wait to see what the big deal is. I’ve seen 2 eps which were more out of order than usual and I’m quite intrigued.

    I’m perplexed about the marketing strategy…I really thought that the broadcast order was deliberate and intended to tell the story the way the creators wanted…..Why the hell screw that up?

    Ah well, as I’ve found out since, the Special Edition is subbed, broadcast order, and should be out first. The regular edition is dubbed, chronological order. I am somewhat cheesed about that, but I can see their point; if they really had to release a set in chronological order (and they’ve made a point of saying that the broadcast order is being released only in R1) then why not dub and sub both? Probably because the broadcast order would outsell the chronological by 2-1 or more, and this way they can get more suckers otaku to pay twice. Doesn’t matter to me, I’m going for the SE anyway.
