Oops, guess I missed this post from almost a month ago. Response.......

Even if it was dubbed, there'd still be the option of watching it in Japanese with subtitles, so there is no problem. Actually, I'm still waiting for someone to announce that they have the title(there's been speculation that it was been picked up, just no one has announced it). As bad as the dub may be, I don't have any doubt that they DVD's will include an uncut subbbed version. So if the dub sucks, pretend like it doesn't exist. That's what I'll do if the dub really does suck.

As long as the sub option is there and the anime hasn't been 'improved' to make it more appealing to a Western audience then I'm happy to have a dub track as well. I know it makes financial sense to have both versions on the same DVD.

Saikano on eBay (not bootlegs)

I see there are a couple of Saikano DVDs on eBay, official Japanese releases rather than bootlegs. Apart from a scary price tag, it looks like 2 eps on the first DVD and four eps on the second one. Anyone know if this is the format Viz will be following?

The first Saikano disc from Viz should be nicely timed, coming out shortly after the last Haibane Renmei disc from Pioneer

I don't know, but it wouldn't be *that* unreasonable. It's a 13 episode series and they could be aiming for something like 2, 4, 4, 3. I was able to see this fansubbed before it was licensed and remember seeing a little warning at the end of episode 10 that if you want a happy ending, stop now and don't watch the last three episodes because it all goes downhill. They could be arranging the episodes on the DVDs to make sure the final DVD has only the last three episodes. That would give you the choice of buying only 3 DVDs and having the happier ending or buying all 4 and getting the depressing ending.

Damnit, the depressing ending is the whole point! They should force everybody to watch those last three episodes, holding their eyes open Clockwork Orange style!

Ah, excellent point! I was trying to figure out why they would only have 2 eps on the first DVD.

I have this on fansub already, I loved it and that's why I want to get the official release. And the last 3 eps are very necessary

Yeah, I did watch the whole thing. I'm not sure the story would be the same without the final three episodes. But it was a really sad series. I was on the verge of crying many times throughout the show. I didn't actually cry, but I was tearing up a lot. It was a pretty good story, but I'm not sure it's the kind of thing I'd really want to watch over and over again. I'm stressed and worried enough with real life issues, I don't really want to watch a lot of anime that's depressing, too. I may consider getting it in the future, but it's not particularly high on my list right now. (See my recent thread here for what I'm looking at buying next and some suggestions from others.)
