Unfortunately, EVA 2.0 was delayed to 2009. GAINAX admitted that to a newspaper.

I'm looking forward to watching OP movie 9, too. XD

And Kiki's Delivery Service?! I remember watching that as a kid! I'm glad to see it's still popular over there.

Wow, I wouldn't have expected the One Piece Movie 9 (Drum Arc Retellling) to do so well. I guess I'll have something to look forward to when its eventually subbed.

Wow, EVA is still in the top 5 even though it was released way back in April. Hopefully they can use some of that money to make 2.0 even nicer (animation wise).

I should imagine only the major fans are really winging it and buying ALL the dvds. If they're releasing it with one episode per disk, then I should think most are only buying the episodes that they really loved. :P
