Ok, the subject pretty much says it all. Anyone have information about this upcoming title? I found out about it at www.animeondvd.com, but there's no real details about it on any other sites.

Now I'm glad I never got around to buying the original release.

The old message boards at AnimeOnDVD used to have a discussion with the disc's producer, but they've recently upgraded.

IIRC the vast opinion was to make sure the disc was high-quality and OAR (I actually have no idea what the aspect ratio for that film is) and then worry about extras.

Of course, this is Manga, so we probably won't see it until the 12th anniversary.

I hope the colors will be resplendent.

Is this to commemorate the new TV series (13 eps) coming out in Japan?

Nope, the TV series was commissioned by Urban Vision.

This is "Crap, our DVDs suck, we have no money for good new properties, let's recycle!"

Frankly I think Manga has less than 3 years to live unless they manage to do what CPM did, and use quality to pull them out of their tailspin

I think they realized this, or at least that's how it appears. Keith Burgess (the company rep) appeared on the old AnimeOnDvd message boards recently, quite contrite and promising that Manga Ent would shape up its act. He also took suggestions quite well from other posters, and the amount of flak he took in a humble manner was quite amazing.

It's made me curious about Manga Ent's future output. I think their release of Read or Die will be the acid test.

Yeah, he's done that before. And nothing changes. I've spoken with the man in person at least a dozen times. He denies there's anything wrong with existing product (Honneamise, COME ON!)

I'll be happy if they DO change, but I'm not optimistic

I'm trying to be optimistic, I mean, it can't hurt. And what makes this interesting is that he's admitted they screwed up Honneamise
