Is it just me or does anyone think that they won't be nearly as popular as they are in Japan? Isn't anime looked down even more in America?

Oh dear I can't even imagine how annoying Magical Girl's voices can become..

I'm glad Aniplex of America is doing this series for the US release. I honestly don't mind the higher price tag if it's in the quality of the Japanese source, and if there are nice extras packaged with it unlike that "thinpack" crap. And BTW, in the case of Kara no Kyoukai, it was an exact Japanese import. Excellent collector's items; rarely/almost never the case with America produced anime (except Rightstuf/Nozomi).

If the charge some insane price like they did with Kara no Kyokai then Aniplex America can go screw themselves...

That was only priced so high because it was released simultaneously in Japan and the US. Obviously that's not the case with Madoka, so the price won't be that high.

Looking forward to owning the series but not looking forward to the ridiculous price tag.
I agree with what you say, Aniplex kinda goes overboard with their prices.

I'm going to cry if they charge 50 bucks for 4 episodes.
I'd rather they make one set for the whole series and call it a day.

Sad thing is they probably are gonna, -sigh-

YEAH!!! I love Madoka Magica! Watching it on Blu-ray would be quite something! (^_^)

Great news, better be a blu-ray.

Jul 7, 2011 12:36 AM by LyricalDream

So, 300 dollars? Per usual Aniplex?

It can't be helped. Kyubey owns my soul.

But Durarara! is dubbed...

Speaking of Durarara!, I absolutely expect Aniplex USA to pursue a TV deal for this show.


What you didn't know? They are going to start airing Durarara on Adult Swim.


Yeah, my wording was awkward. I meant that since Durarara!! got a TV deal, I expect Aniplex to pursue the same for Madoka Magica. Sorry about the poorly worded post.


Heh, you know if they do do that, they should end up including the "Morning Rescue" commercials when they aired them! xD If you didn't get that reference / joke, sorry about that.
