Could be a couple of things…?

  1. Papa Sony’s directive to put on a “see, we’re not a monopoly” face.
  2. Not enough “return on their investment” from the last 2-3 seasons.
  3. Sony might be going thru the “AT&T…we bit off more than we can chew.”

Or, like previously said up top…waiting at the last minute to “surprise”…no one.

I just thought of something, any of those titles Aniplex? If not, maybe those haven’t been finalized in time for the announcement.

If Funimation rereleased a DBZ bluray that, as an extra, had their “Rock the Dragon” edition in 4:3 HD, yep, I’d buy it again.

I hope not. Sure, I’m having too much fun watching the dubs of a lot of “trash taste” Netflix anime, like High Rise Invasion, but so much content on Netflix just gets lost in their landslide churn of new content.

Plus if Netflix looks like a real contender then our lax regulators are more likely to sign off on the Sony/Funi purchase of Crunchy, and then when Netflix’s staggering debt catches up with it then we will have an effective monopoly.

I’m hoping not to .
I like my disc and sadly except a select few . Netflix shows rarely get disc .

Akira Jacket | Official Collector’s Edition Sizzle

just a note that it doesn’t have the capsule on the back, so how can they say it’s Kaneda’s if it doesn’t

I agree! Without the capsule, it isn’t an Akira jacket.

However, on the other side of things, if they did have the capsule, they might be accused of promoting drugs by those that don’t know any better. LOL

a simple google search, and I can find one WITH the capsule…AND cheaper.

Well that’s just dumb . Not like they’d have one that would fit me ,but without the capsule logo it’s certainly not the Jacket from the Akira movie that they are trying to tie it to .

In the Manga I don’t believe the jacket with the capsule ever actually appeared . So I guess this is more based off the manga then if my memory is correct .

What I find funny, is that a for-private-corporation, now owned by a bigger FPC, are selling a piece of clothing worn by someone who in the movie was all about vigilante protest.
