I think that summary is the most I’ve heard about this, aside from the name. It has me curious, but I’m not sure it’s something I’d like to own on home video.

Just saw that rightStuf has posted that Sentai’s release of this will have “commentary”. While I, sadly, think I already know the answer, I have to ask: Is that commentary in Japanese?

rightStuf is pretty horrible at listing special features, or more importantly, the lack of special features.

This seems like something I’ll be interested in.

I saw the first episode. It was alright, better than I thought it’d be. To sum it up, I’d say it’s Speed Grapher + X-Men. [size=2]It also reminds me a lot of Gemini of the Meteor, but we all know that sucked so I’ll leave it out ;)[/size]

The main character seems to be one of those lame hero archetypes, but maybe he’ll get better as the show progresses. Though he’s so effeminate looking that it’s funny. “Dude looks like a Lady” would be an easily-made AMV. Speaking of songs, they used the full version of their ending theme at the end of EP 1. Unusual.

I think I’ll wait for the dub to finish this. Any idea on the language of the extra features?

None of us are certain. Sentai hasn’t done too many English language commentaries, but they’ve been getting better about including extra features. So either is a possibility. You could try emailing them at their website. That are fairly good about responding to questions about features and packaging, etc.

Sentai is too good at that. I emailed them back when the Infinite Stratos information went up on rightStuf, and Sentai promptly informed me that the extras were Japanese only. I appreciate the prompt reply and the honesty, but the reply killed my hope.

On a side note, what English commentaries/extras has Sentai done? Off the top of my head, they did the Clannad commentary track and they republished the ADV Orphen audio outtakes (though they didn’t republish others, like the Gilgamesh extras).

I can think of few J-movies which had commentary tracks, come to think :frowning:
