So far I'm hearing too many excuses, about why not to buy an item. In a thread which is asking for a company, to re-release an anime series for sale. While you're of course entitled to your opinion (and quite correct on some technical levels), I think a lot of us, me included, feel differently. Whe...

We're just going to have to agree to disagree on this. (As always, if the mods deem anything I've shared inappropriate, by all means remove the links, though I still feel this is appropriate personally). Re B_U, he had said he owns the first volume of the Japanese DVD for this project, and my unders...

I would guess poor sales as to the Korean DVD release, but that's only a guess. It's clear the first 3 DVD's are a slightly higher production quality than the next 3, and they stop after that, so that suggests to me they might have been trying to cut costs. It's a shame and I'd be completely happy i...

Anyone else find this whole project wrong? you state fansubs, but this seems more like piracy. You don't seem to be translating anything at all, just ripping parts of the Japanese and Korean DVD releases, which you don't seem to own. And even asking for donations for this? If you really want to tra...

jeffbert, some interesting thoughts! To me, there's definitely some shielding from all good and evil and most especially truth. But even more disturbing than that to me, if possible, seems to be the trend of teaching *absolute* good and evil without nuance or shades of gray. I tend to think the exam...

I think a lot of it too is that not all of us "know" the original quite yet. Personally, I'm starting with the 2003 series and working backwards (ie. next is the 80's series and after that the 60's series, though I have already viewed the pilot episodes of all three). I'm doing this at the rate of o...

Great comments, all. Yeah, personally I even like the English version of Astro's voice (it does sound a bit older, but that doesn't bother me - I can see how it could some, tho), but it's the script changes that just push it over the edge for me. I expected some differences too, but not this many an...

WooHoo! I'm trying to talk myself into a BluRay player since they're starting to release the new Doctor Who on the format now, and this news definitely helps convince me. ^.^

I hope they do the movie justice and give lots of extras, etc. on both the DVD and BluRay sets.
