Hmm... is anyone else kinda waiting for someone to jump out from behind AOD and yell "Gotcha!"?

Of course, they must know they'd be mauled, hung, drawn and quartered, and all their worldy posessions and family members would be auctioned off to fund ADV licensing AIR for real, but I'm still half expecting it to happen.

One thing I can't foreseeing, giving Haruko a American Southen Accent for the Dub.....

Her Kansai Ben is what make her stands out.

And of course, the Summer Arc might be all Shakespearean Talk to fit the mood in the dub.

Hmmm...am I missing something? Why is it such a big surprise to see Air getting licensed? Just because it's been a while since it aired?

Anyway, I'm so gonna buy these DVDs.

A Stegosaurus t-shirt with the special edition would be ultra-win.

Shuffle, Utawaremono, Fate/Stay Night, Happy Lesson, Sister Princess and numerous gal games/eroge weren't licensed. Would that move hurt more than benefit typical americans?

This oughta be sweet! I haven't seen Air in a long time and I KNEW it was gonna be licensed by ADV and I was right! I'm thinking these people should voice the characters (these are NOT real. Just my suggestions)

Kunisaki Yukito: John Gremillion
Kamio Misuzu: Kira Vincent-Davis
Kamio Haruko: Luci Christian
Kirishima Kano: Hilary Haag
Tohno Minagi: Allison Sumrall
Michiru: Sasha Paysinger
Kanna: Jessica Boone
Ryuuya: Chris Patton
Uraha: Shelley-Calene Black
Tachibana Keisuke: John Swasey

Do not take these seriously cuz' these are just my suggestions.

...holy. CRAP. Well, as awesome as that sounds, I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if the dub sucks to high hell, because I don't put a lot of faith in American voice actors in anime. Of course, I'll still sell a kidney or something to buy it, and I'll still just be watching the subtitles, but it's the fact of the matter!

Atrocious dub, especially a bad Misuzu = end of something's existence. XD

I guess this means it IS possible for Kanon to come to the states in the future. Interesting.

W00t, I didn't think AIR would get licensed! I have to buy those DVDs. Though I thought Kanon would have gotten licensed first if either one was going to... I've had a bad experience with dubs, so let's just hope it's a good one!

Lawlz... Guess we can say goodbye to the thread about why AIR hasn't been licensed yet.

Just to clear things up a little, ADV has the TV series, the Movie, and the "In Summer" OVA.

Well, i don't think In Summer has been mentioned --- though ADV could have it as part of the TV series.

Hard to say.

Apparently, one of AnimeOnDVD's staff writers confirmed the acquisition. The DVDs will also be released on a monthly basis.

Good to hear, thanks!

It'll be interesting to see how the movie shall do --- of course they've gone the good path that is 'release the movie after a few volumes of the TV series', that way it'll get more people interesting in seeing the movie.

Holy....

My god. I wake up this morning, click on ANN and this forum, and almost have a heart attack. And it's this August! This is... absolutely fantastic, are the first words that spring to mind.

I don't care about dubs, naturally... I'm just hoping for a beautiful transfer (should be done, ADV does their own encoding from masters), with a good sub track and some fantastic packaging. And hey, extras for the win would be great too!

I'm still in shock. Happy shock. ^^

Usually OVA's are released along with the series if they were released after the series aired. Examples include Please Teacher/Twins, Banner of the Star. Although, R.O.D was and still is sold separately, and it was released long before the TV series.

Excuse me while I pick up my shattered jaw from the floor.

...thanks.

I'd be interested in seeing what caused Key's change of heart regarding licensing its bioshoujo game adaptations. I think it's safe to say that this is likely a test of the format, and that if AIR succeeds, KyoAni's Kanon (I doubt that, regardless of AIR's success, Toei's adaptation of Kanon will ever see North American shores) and the upcoming CLANNAD adaptations may follow.

If it doesn't, then ADV will probably not seek the licenses (they're in enough financial trouble as it is - this is a major risk for them), and Key will probably return to being reserved in regards to licensing KyoAni's Kanon and the upcoming CLANNAD adaptations.

Nonetheless, this is a sure buy for me. Though I'm having trouble imagining the dub. Probably for the best that I don't think about it.

OMG -- FPB is right, even the impossible is possible! With that in mind, I hope they're still able to improve on Pony Canyon's encoding despite crunching the series down to a four disc set. In any case, I'm crossing my fingers and counting the days till August 14th...
