An American anime distributor, ADV Films, reported recently that it will release Clannad and
Princess Resurrection in half-season sets, instead of previously planned single DVDs.
The first 12 episodes (300 minutes) of Clannad will ship on March 3rd and the first 13 episodes (325 minutes) of Princess Resurrection will ship on March 17th. The suggested price for each is US$39.98. ADV Films is trying out this new approach after much thought and talking with fans.

This is good news. I won't be buying either series though, or watching them for that matter =/.

Question, If you are not going to watch Clannad, then why is it on your plan to watch list with priority set on high?


I didn't remove it 2 months ago? That's odd O_O. *removes*

This is nice. :D

Kind of sad if it's not dubbed, though. I mean, I would normally take a sub over a dub any day, but if I want anyone else I know to watch it, they won't watch anything except for dubs. Which sucks. >_>

Guh -____-. Getting annoyed at this new trend of half-season "boxed" sets. Anyone see the Ghost Hunt half season "box"? It's practically thinner than a single dvd. I LOVE collecting and owning the large proper artboxes. At least Darker than Black and Claymore are getting proper (as in, artbox and then single volumes) releases.

I will definitely buy/import Clannad, and I hope this will get the support it deserves, so that After Story will be licensed too.

Dudes ignore this ADV has kick Fans in the ass >_> I hate to say this so much cause Clannad is my favorite anime an these bastards are messing up my happiness with it coming to America

why? no one cares about dubs


Urusai Baka Chiuwawa .. I care about dubs. I have seen Clannad subbed 5 times I was majorly looking forward to the Dub version of Clannad. Think before you speak Baka!


It's so cute that you think you're Japanese.

Seriously though, I'm shocked that ADV's making these two shows sub only. I figured they would use these shows to show off their dub casts again. I guess ADV can't even afford to fund a dub right now.

Subs > Dubs.

IMO.
So I'm happy with this new development.

I wouldn't say no one cares because obviously mario1-7 does and so do I and that's two people right there haha

I actually do prefer subs but i would enjoy watching clannad dubbed if it was done pretty well

I've always thought it was strange that the native Japanese DVDs are like $30-40 bucks for one or two episodes and that over here it's $20-30 bucks for three or four ( not complaining or anything though ;) ). Now it's even more off.

I'm a fan of subs, but it's nice to have both :/

This is a great decision on ADV's side. $40 for 13 episodes is much better than $20-$30 per 3-4 episode dvd.

seriously, I just might buy it now

Damn it, Guys forget it. Its Subbed only >_> Damn this hurts me. this is why those Bastards are in the red zone. Damn it ADV Should just die and give Clannad to Bandai or FUNimation! well I was Hyped but now I feel like I was stabbed in the heart. I've seen Clannad subbed 5 times I wanted to watch it in a Different way. I should have know this was to good to be true. *Walks away with head down*
