ADV are releasing 'EVA Platnium' in July I think. It's basically NGE, with improved animation, 5.1 sound and includes the directors cut episodes. (D-C episodes are eps 21-26)

So I'd buy that, will be worth the money for improved EVA. Plus yeah, in Australia we have the crappy ADV DVD's anyway.



i download the episodes off the net weekly

www.animesuki.com and www.downloadanime.org tend to cover em


As long as they are un-licensed, or that would be ILLEGAL! *gasp*
But judging that you stopped once Chrno Crusade was licensed, you are a good boy. ;) :P

sabret00the
11 May 2004, 11:06
i got all the EVA's on VHS, leant em to my friend and never seen em since :(

Tony G
11 May 2004, 13:00
Ewww, VHS. :p

BTW, Full Metal Alchemist is now licensed by FUNimation. So yeah, they won't be available legally for much longer.

sabret00the
11 May 2004, 13:26
that sucks, i wanted to finish that series :(

Ewww, VHS. :pheh, he actually done me a favour ;)

Well, why not recorded onto the HD, and then just gave him a copy? :p

11 May 2004, 13:38
because the special edition sounds to sexy to pass up :p

12 May 2004, 10:21
Special Edition is worth a buy. Rid of all your old EVA DVD's while you can. :p

Brad
12 May 2004, 16:54
I'm not buying anymore of adv's crap, I spent over 2 months attempting to clean up that video source so I could encode my collection.

Honestly I would prefer vhs most days for encoding, less crap to deal with. I'm just ganna brush up on my japanese and import for now on. :)

No fansubs are actually legal, respective of the producers that make the originals (whether there are written laws is unclear), but yes FMA wont be available so easily by those groups that respect American licensors.

Yet, this isn't going to stop other groups from subbing it, given the series large popularity. GunGrave was continued by AnimeOne long after it was licensed, InuYasha has been going almost 2 years after licensed, and the new Tenjou Tenge is another example.

Anyhow, its a shame Funimation, and not a better dubber like Pioneer (who did Cowboy Bebop) got hold of FMA. :\

sabret00the
12 May 2004, 18:25
i heard Tenjou got licensed but i weren't sure.

i thought the loophole was always there to be able to say i'm subbing into english for England based users for licensing anyway.

i know that AonE were contacted regarding a few old series they were subbing, and asked to stop by ADV themselves.

Doesn't stop them from subbing them, but some people see it as illegal only once it has been licensed by a dubbing company.

I wouldn't judge the dubs from FUNi until you see the one for FMA. They are capable of producing a good dub, if they only pick the right VA's for the job. For DB/Z/GT, some voice actors are decent, but the cutting of scenes let them down a bit. For Fruits Basket, the VA's were just horrible.

Also, I don't like how they dub the OP/ED's of anime series. It's best to leave them in jap as 99.9% of the time they sound better in their original form.

Maikeru
13 May 2004, 13:04
Yeah, some of the DB/Z/GT voices were decent, but most of them didn't sound right. I think they should just make a channel for anime in japanese with subtitles, that might make them sound better.

Tony G

With channels, they would put them in english to attract a larger audience.

the Final Fantasy manga series 'Final Fantasy Unlimited' is quite cool but the creators were handed the job with no love for the games, and the dubbing is really bad :(

People associate 'teenager' or 'adolescent' with someone my age. 'child' is associated with people younger, and that is what I was referring to.

I don't think so, I watch alot of late night cn (aqua teen, bebop (altho ive seen it all a millon times) and family guy). If you can't download or buy many dvd's they are running wolf's rain on cn on saturday nights, thats a real good anime altho I hav'nt seen the dub for myself yet.

We have that in Australia too, but they only show what has been released in Australia, which is a few months behind US Releases as dub's initally are released in the US.

The new Samurai Champloo anime has started airing today.

By Shinichiro Watanabe, director of Cowboy Bebop.

I don't have any details of who is subbing it (it is licensed, but hell, somebody is bound to do it anyway), but RAWs are being distributed.

From the clip I have seen from the first episode, it looks absolutely bad ass. Should be an awesome series.
