It's cool that GitS was released, but I'm more excited for the announcements from Otakon coming up.
First of all, those are all early things from RightStuf. Until you see the full lineup on Funimation's shop I have no reason to believe that this is their ENTIRE October release list. Give it time for them to update their shop and then you can judge for yourself.
It might be because of the change in distributers (They signed that deal with Universal a while back) and this might be the last group of titles under the old distribution system.
So only 2 titles might be all we get this month. Although with at least 7 titles still promised for this year and only 2 months left, you have to wonder where each of the promised titles are on the production schedule.
Updated. 5 releases is a bit little, but I'm sure FUNi will make some big announcements at Otakon.
Surprised that the two S.A.V.E.s are only on DVD when they originally came on BluRay. GITS Arise is the only one getting a rise out of me. (God that was bad. I feel ashamed now.)
As much as I like GITS I think I will probably wait until they release all the episodes before I get it so I can have the full series in one shot.
I hope something Dragonball gets announced at Otakon whether its Kai Buu Saga or Super we need some kind of dragonball material releases its been since January since season 9 was released :/
Actually it's a smart move to make the SAVE Editions DVD only, it drives down their price and it also forces the waiters , if they want a Blu-Ray Edition, to buy either the original, or an Anime Classics release.
Damn, for once funimation.com is cheaper than rightstuf
GitS: Arise and One Piece.
