Considering the only things capable of playing back DVDs I have are Region 1, I wouldn't.

Region encoding is far, far more irritating to the consumer than it should be.

Okay.. thats it (goes off to look for region crack for the DVD player in his den). Next player I buy WILL be region-free, after all if its a global economy for the corporations - its a global economy for me too, dammit.
edit: and... it turns out my player can only be modded by a rechip or with a service unit it seems (bastards). Ah well, so much for their products.

Something I've been considering... since part of the 'coolness' of the Devices is the speaking in foreign languages, maybe they'll do a full switch.

You know... everyone else speaks English, so RH / B speak Japanese. (Or for a German dub, the Tome devices speak Japanese, or maybe Swedish).

Heh, here's an idea. Why not call the dub "White Devil"? That's a great idea! (cough. Sarcasm.)

Like said in first post, Geneon has registered nanohadvd.com, but this does not mean that Nanoha will be licensed. There is just a possibility.
It depends on good folks at Geneon.

I meen, similarly, I believe Funimation had the rights to Onepiece.com (or simmilar) and then 4kids beat them to the punch.

On the renaming, "Lyrical Nanoha" works fine. As long as they don't go the Tokyopop route of naming it something completely illrelevent (COUGHchibivampireCOUGH) It's fair game.

Maybe even have a reverse cover so the selling side is "Lyrical Nanoha" and the revese side is "Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha".

Well... to be honest, i was always wondering "why the "lyrical" in the title?". weirdly enough, i think "magical girl" made more sense than lyrical, for the nanoha series


maybe i didn't really get the true meaning of that word for the title, but still ~~

That would certainly satisfy people like myself. I'll just pretend that the non-"Magical Girl" title doesn't exist.

Well, it is there to stop you from playing DVDs/videogames/etc. from other regions. Just look into "methods" of bypassing that encoding. I haven't had need to bother yet (not a big importer... though I am considering importing the Tsukihime and Higurashi no Naku Koro ni games, and the Fate/Stay Night game once mirrormoon finishes the English translation patch), but I know that they're out there.

That was probably because of the "incantation" Nanoha used to seal Jewel Seeds in the first set of 13 episodes.

As far as I can tell, its the incantation for Nanoha to activate Raising Heart and maybe some of the spells.

In season 1, Yuuno did ask Nanoha to "look into your heart" or something like that to find her own incantation. Lyrical was just that.

Here's the dictionary meanings of Lyrical:

Quote:
1. (of poetry) having the form and musical quality of a song, and esp. the character of a songlike outpouring of the poet's own thoughts and feelings, as distinguished from epic and dramatic poetry.
2. pertaining to or writing lyric poetry: a lyric poet.
3. characterized by or expressing spontaneous, direct feeling: a lyric song; lyric writing.
4. pertaining to, rendered by, or employing singing.
5. (of a voice) relatively light of volume and modest in range: a lyric soprano.
6. pertaining, adapted, or sung to the lyre, or composing poems to be sung to the lyre: ancient Greek lyric odes.
Notice the third meaning? It easily pertains to Nanoha's theme of expression of feelings and understanding in the first and second seasons.

"Lyrical" was a nod to the old Triangle Hearts fandisc, Triangle Heart ~Lyrical Toy Box.
