Sentai Filmworks Press Release


I’ve always heard great things about this film and the themes sound like ones I would be interested in. I’m really, really looking forward to it.


Cover art has been posted.


Chris Ayres directs? I’m a tad surprised. Perhaps 2 hours and 6 minutes of Chris Ayres directed dub will allow me to answer my nagging questions about his direction.

So now I have to see it, though learning from last time I’ll likely wait a bit on buying a physical copy of it.

Mmmmm 1080 video & 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio.

These credits seem more in-depth than most. Thanks Sentai, I do appreciate detailed cast lists.

With Chris Ayres as Director and Greg Ayres as the male lead I’ll definitely have to check this one out. I’ve been falling behind on my anime watching lately. I don’t see it on the TAN release schedule so I’ll have to find some other stuff to watch here in the interim. I’m adapting lol, checking out stuff I never would have because of this: RahXephon actually appears to be decent… :wink:

BTW, why is Brittney Karbowski underlined in the quote?


Oops, thanks.

[url=][/url] [b]The Movie (Dub) is now LIVE![/b]



I think I found what I’ll be watching later today.


The ad on the side is a bold face lie, it’s not on VoD yet!


I have to tell you, I’m all broke up about that :laugh: :laugh: :wink:


My bluray of this arrived today. I’m really looking forward to watching it.
