Did some digging and Tears to Tiara looks like a good title.

If you’ve seen Utawarerumono, you’ll like it. A lot of us in this forum loved it… so very much looking forward to it.

Having said that though, Utawarerumono had a fabulous dub, by who is dubbed as the “King of Casting” Don Rush (Full Metal Panic series, Azumanga, UFO Ultramaiden, Coyote Ragtime). It was his final work for ADV before he moved out of town when he left the industry. So it’s a little sad that that amazing dub couldn’t be replicated in this case. But it’s for the best as Utawarerumono was one of those titles ADV sunk money into with too little niche buyers. Sub-only release is definitely the smart business decision with these titles.

Hey, more new titles, and a couple I want. I’m actually pretty pumped, and it’s made all the better considering the news yesterday. I will definitely grab Tears to Tiara and Polyphonica. And I will undoubtedly try Blue Drop and Special A.

I think a lot of people were shocked they got Special, since it was a Gonzo title (or at least animated by them.)

And in case anyone is interested, Switchblade’s website is already updated with info and cover art for the “J-Horror” titles. Though at least Nu-Meri seems to fall more into the “Pink Cinema” category.

Special A will be my first “Sentai” DVD. Cool beans.

I noticed my “Ki-Gai DVD (S) LiveAction MSRP:$19.98 Date Available - Nov 3 2009” is on reserve for my order at Rightstuf. Can someone check and see if their order for “You’re Under Arrest Season 2 DVD Collection 1 (S) MSRP:$39.98 Date Available - Nov 3 2009” is on reserve as well? Trying to gauge when the rest should come in and ship.
