I am so thankful to Central Park Media for all the hard work they put into this title. They relized how good of a show it was, and so they gave the dubbing studio extra time to dub it. The studio alowed their actors to watch the show completely once or twice before even starting on it. The extra effert put into the dub is easily seen, as this is a top of the line dub. If anyone thinks New York isn’t as good as LA Texas they only need to see this dub. They also gave it a ton of great extras.
As for the show its self, I heard it mentioned over the years, but I never saw it in stores, so I never got it. I really didn’t look for it either, and I knew almost nothing about it. When I heard it was going to play on the Sci-Fi Channel along with Gurren Lagann I knew that meant it was time to watch it. Within 4 episodes I fell in love with it. It’s an amazing show! I bought it on Amazon (it was a used copy). I am so grateful to CPM, Manga Ent and the Sci-Fi channel, because if it wasn’t for all of them I would never have seen it. It’s become my 2nd favorite show of all time, it’s that good. Anyone who hasn’t seen it needs to buy this right now!
That being said, my DVD boxset is rather old, and the DVD’s were a little beat up. It’s great that ADV saved this title, because now I can buy it brand new. Can’t wait to get this, again. I told my one onlien friend who wanted to buy this, and she’s ganna get it too. She didn’t want to buy a used copy for so much online, and now she can get this new and enjoy it too. I hope they include the extras, because they are really good, and everyone should give them a look as well.
Thank you ADV! Too bad they couldn’t have just done distrobution for CPM for this title (and others), to keep them in buisness :(. It’s a shame it had to come to this, to see their titles again. At this point though, I’m just glad we are seeing more of their great shows. I’m a little more hopeful for the future.
