As Rish mentioned, I'm going through Celga to get a copy from Animate - but that's because I'm obsessive about getting all the first-pressing bonus goodies that will disappear over time. If you just want the game itself, places like Play-Asia may work out cheaper.

Since I don't have a PS2, my cunning plan is to import a Japanese PS3 - not only will it let me play Japanese PS2 games (assuming the backwards compatibility is sufficient), it'll also serve as a Region A Blu-ray player. That's less of an issue if you're in North America, but for us poor schmucks in Region B it's a big win.

Another motivation for the PS3 is that I can run Linux on it and tinker with Cell programming. Yeah, I'm a nerd

When posters acquire copies of the PS2 game; can they provide mini-reviews or commentary about their purchase? I might be buying a copy for myself and it would be interesting to see what other opinions are.

I have a copy on preorder at YesAsia, but Play Asia also seems to stock it.


As for playing, you'll probably need either a JP PS2, or a chip-moded US/Euro version, or some other region-bypass (top-loading tray, whatever) hacked PS2 to play the thing.


...I'm still sort of half-expecting them to announce tomorrow that the game will be delayed for another six months ;-P

O ye of little faith!

Amazon show it in stock as of this morning, so I guess it's no longer vapourware.

Pardon the double post, but I've just finished watching ICE - I think it might be relevant to the interests of Simoun fans.

Why? Well the obvious answer would be its combination of sci-fi and yuri aspects, plus a certain amount of gender-bending (it's set in a world where all the men have died out, and one of the main female characters is voiced by a bloke). But the real reason is harder to explain, something about the way it throws in a whole lot of intriguing stuff then leaves you wondering what the hell is going on. Much like Simoun, it's not a show for people who want their anime to make immediate sense

Also, Kitamura Eri (Amuria) plays a character called Mint, who has nothing to do with Galaxy Angel.

Agreed, Simon. I've been disappointed with the responses in the ICE thread. I would highly recommend this OAV, if you're willing to bear with the teens who voice half of the characters. The irony of having a show about strong, multi-layered female characters aimed at the looks-over-talent idol singer market! ^^;

Of course, it's not the slice-of-life show much of Simoun is.

The Portly 88-Keyed Fellow expects relevant pictures of said event.

Good to see it's getting some notoriety.

Merci, IchiKyo. It's been mentioned here before, but the full-length OP and ED themes can be found on savage genius's album Kaze no Kesshō.

According to the Media Blasters panel at AX, Simoun will be released sub-only.

I kinda figured that would happen. A bit of a shame, as I always look forward to hearing a dub to either laugh/cringe at how bad it is or to marvel at the novelty of a good one.
At least this means the discs will be dirt cheap, though

Some vaguely interesting news from AOD:

Quote:
Monday, July 16th, 2007

Media Blasters Talks Titles (04:45 PM EDT): A new communication out of Media Blasters today highlights some things we'll see more formally soon as the email listed just titles and dates:
  • ...
  • Simoun Vol. #1 (6 ep) - 11/13/2007
  • ...
Sadly I still can't find a single mention of Simoun on the Media Blasters site. If anyone from MB is reading this, I'm grateful to you for licensing Simoun, but as a source of information your site is the most useless of any anime company I know. Please, please get rid of all the Flash eye-candy, and replace it with HTML that people can actually navigate through and link to. I want to see this anime succeed, but it's hard to encourage people to buy it when you can't even point them to an official page

I've been interested in the ps2 game as well since I saw they were working on it last year. I got my fingers crossed and already ordered it from the play-asia people. If I get the game even still just sealed in package and never play thats good enough for me. I collect things to have not to sell. Waiting as well to see what they do with the series on DVD. My fingers are crossed and I am looking out the window every time I hear a door ... (added signature for part of this here listed corrected spelling)

I love the game more than the Anime
The new Character "Ashura" is awesome (her Golden Simoun too)
New ennemis are terrific... those new Sybilla (with new Simoun : Red, Blue etc...)

Received my copy of the Simoun Drama CD, the one where the entire Sybilla all goes to "Tokyo City." Highly enjoyable, although I didn't get parts of it. I'll be looking forward to November to get my first Simoun DVD.

Some key parts:
Spoiler for Drama CD:
