I don't think it includes everything in the Japanese release (which included things like in character commentaries on some episodes and some pages of a certain writer's story), but it's still much better than average for an R1 as expected of NIS (I own their Toradora and Wagaya no Oinari-sama release, planning to get Hanasaku Iroha and Zakuro soon).
I think I own that R1 DVD. Yours is from Bandai yeh? TBH I got it from Amazon because it was on sale as a duo with Sola. It's incredibly shitty package and I merely bought it to support it. Though I'm not sure I wanna fork out 100s of dollars on a non-sub Japanese only Bluray box
Heh... AX is actually doable for a Vancouver based fan and some people do that pilgrimage, but I've never had the time or money as it's either a flight or 20 hours of driving (Compared to Sakuracon which is more like 2.5 hours + border lines and has scored talent as notable as Urobuchi - I've run into quite a few of my regular cosplayers over the three years I've attended Sakuracon). Wish I could make it this year.
(BTW, I own True Tears on R1 DVD. Extremely no frills though, unlike NIS's release of Hanasaku Iroha it's definitely a no frills release.)
Point #1: None, not neither.
Point #2: I was going to say that being 147cm/4'10" is it's own appeal, but then I looked it up and it turns out Ohana is actually 160cm/5'3", so not really that short, more like Kotomi height. My original source probably mixed her height up with the height of her seiyuu, who actually is 147cm.
Also, since I know you've sometimes joked about emo teen music: my friends and I occassionally hold LAN parties for games ranging from Battlefield 3 to Civ 4. There's a friend who I always pick up - about 15 minutes each way.
So why is it that the last three time I've picked him up, Linkin Park's "In the End" has come on the radio during that 15 minute drive? I mean, what are the odds?
It's actually become a bit of an in joke at this point.
Heh... the distinguishing features of the characters aren't quite as effective when all three series are together. Nice pic anyway. Surprised they didn't match Nako and Sawa on te basis of their figures. Pose makes it tricky to tell if Noe is in the sub-150cm club like Ohana is.
Nice to see the author of Toradora back in the game. Since Toradora seemed to be designed to be a bit more sophisticated than the average loli-tsundere flick, I assume that this will provide a fairer look at the sleep deprived torment of the student lifestyle then competing series.
One of my anime buddies dropped by last night between two trips. Starting at 5PM, the evening went: Hataraku Maou-sama 1, Death Billiards, Little Witch Academia, Namiuchigawa no Muromi-san 1, dinner break, Evangelion 3.33, Hataraku Maou-sama 2, Aku no Hana 1-2, Suisei no Gargantia 1, drove another friend home, Suisei no Gargantia 2, and Wolf Children, followed by reviewing my Sakuracon photos and talking camera gear. Though we didn't get to Red Data Girl 3-4 as intended (I watched them when I got up today). Actually, I guess 4AM doesn't really count as "evening" anymore - only two of the four of us who started actually made it through the end, my buddy because he said he'd sleep on the plane and me because my summer classes don't start for another two weeks. Helped me catch up a bit too since of that group I'd only previously seen Gargantia and Muromi-san.
