It's been forever since I bought a DvD period, but any reason why you hope that it includes Nanoha? Does ADV include better extras or something? Then again, extras in general weren't that great when I was still buying DvDs heh. Although I do think that ADV included something better then normal lol.

I guess maybe it's been too long since I bought any anime then... since I don't seem to remember ADV being any slower then other companies. Well, if they are quicker and they do take over the Nanoha distro then that'll be great. So long as it doesn't make Geneon rush things that is... Not that i'll be watching the dub, but you still don't want them to do a rush job hehe.

I'm really more worried by the fact Geneon has a small cast of voice actors and you tend to see many anime with the same voice actors filling roles... And since the majority of dubs seem to pale in comparison to the originals... I'm scared for Nanoha dub x_x

I fail to see the worry. It's a DVD. If the dub turns out bad, simply switch language to Japanese and you won't have to worry about it anymore.

I'd be more scared of the way they'd translate some of the names... for example.

Daizengar -> "DaiGenGuard" (SRWOG2 English) -> "DaiGynGuar" or something like that in SRWOGs for Japanese.

By the way, it's not all that unusual for Geneon to take a while in announcing release dates after announcing a license. The typical wait time from announcement to release is something like six months to a year or more, IIRC. They probably just don't want to give a date until they're relatively sure they can make it.

And, incidentally, music licensing won't be an issue here, since King Records published both the anime and all the music for it. And the ADV deal shouldn't affect it much either, since Geneon will still be operating independantly and handling all the production work. All in all, I'd say to just give it time.

About the ADV thing... It makes me wonder, if Nanoha (or any other anime) boxsets come down the road a few years from now, do you think they'll be stripped of extra content like ADV thinpaks are? Usually, Geneon's collections retain everything that was in the singles...

Probably not. According to what has been said, Geneon will still be responsible for creating the material for sale, but ADV will be the one selling.

I would only start getting worried if there has been no news from Geneon halfway 2008.

Getting a nice box with the first volume would be nice. If there isn't one I usually wait
until a complete boxset comes out, but for this show waiting is not an option.
I don't want the initial sales to flop and having them decide StrikerS is not worth licensing as a result.

it seems that Geneon has canceled its distribution partnership with ADV...and it might be looking bad for Nanoha being released in the states.

From what I have heard, production for Nanoha is already underway. The problem is they have no way to distribute due to lack of a Sales team. This will also affect all other Geneon products currently in production.

Wish I could give you one but that's what I heard from a friend who's now a former employee. Of course with the press release stating that all in-house production is being shut down at the end of the year, we might never see beyond a couple DVDs anyway or Hellsing 4 or pretty much anything else beyond what's on the release chart. :/

Wait a second, what makes you think that Geneon is going to stop all in house productions anyway? Which press release are you talking about?

ADV and Geneon Call off Strategic Alliance, Sept. 21 2007

HOUSTON, September 21, 2007—ADV Films, the number one producer-distributor of anime outside of Japan, today confirmed that it has withdrawn plans to distribute Geneon Entertainment's DVDs, CDs, and other product in North America.

“We regret that we could not complete an arrangement with Geneon Entertainment,” said ADV Films co-founder and President John Ledford. “We have enormous admiration for Geneon's line and wish them the best of luck.”

The strategic alliance announced jointly by ADV Films and Geneon Entertainment on August 29, which was slated to take effect October 1, would have made ADV Geneon's sole distributor in North America.

About ADV Films:
In the 15 years since its inception, ADV Films has become the #1 producer-distributor of Japanese animation (“anime”) outside of Japan and has the largest English-language anime library in the world. With best-selling titles such as Neon Genesis Evangelion, RahXephon, Robotech, Full Metal Panic!, Hello Kitty and Azumanga Daioh, ADV Films' extensive catalog is fueling the popularity of anime around the globe. Always on the forefront, ADV is introducing North America to bold new anime franchises such as the new Guyver, Le Chevalier D'Eon, Gantz, and Elfen Lied. ADV Films' library also includes popular live-action science fiction programs such as The Jim Henson Company's Farscape, the nationally syndicated Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda and the Saturn Award-nominated Mutant X. In 2005 ADV Films was voted “Best Anime Company” in the SPJA awards, presented at Anime Expo, North America's largest anime convention. The readers of Anime News Network designated ADV Films “Overall Favorite Anime Company” in both 2004 and 2005.

Parent company A.D. Vision, Inc. encompasses a variety of complementary media divisions, spanning publishing, television, licensing and merchandising and continues to expand into new areas. Its Anime Network™ is “America's #1 Anime Channel,” reaching more than 40 million households. Anime Network is the nation's top video-on-demand (VOD) offering as well as a 24/7 linear cable channel and is the first television network dedicated to bringing anime and anime-related programming to consumers nationwide. The company has two publishing arms: Newtype USA, North America's top-selling anime and manga monthly magazine, and ADV Manga™, dedicated to publishing graphic novels. Headquartered in Houston, the company has offices in Europe and Japan. For more information, visit www.advfilms.com.
This suggests that while Geneon should still have its production staff, it will need to do a fair bit of work to get its marketing and distribution back into shape.
