    I've been trying to get the official release date but have had no luck. Some online retailers list it as in stock. Yesterday, Best Buy told me today, then I returned today and they told me next week. Anybody have an official date for volume 1?

    The official date was actually the 26th of September, but it seems to be having a hard time getting to retailers. I remember I went through the same thing with volume 6 of Ah My Goddess, another Media Blasters release. I would say wait a week or two, it should turn up (although I wish it were sooner rather than later as well).

    ...Great. My Withdrawal symptoms are getting worse.
    Have they released a cast list yet?

    If they keep screwing around, I'm just going to keep my fansubs and completely ignore the DVDs. they obviously don't want our money that much.

    Let's not jump the gun to much. Remember this is a niche product for them and they're taking a risk with it as is. But damn I want it now. I just saw GGG Final 08 a few days back so I'm riding the high.

    I dont think the company has ever gotten a DVD released on time. practically everything they release is delayed for months, without them ever saying why, or that it's even being delayed. you just go to the store every release date and hope it's actually there.

    Media Blasters has indeed had some pretty FUBAR release date problems lately. It's amusing, because at Anime Boston I asked the rep at the booth about Best Buy not getting their releases on time, and they blamed it on Best Buy doing something with their system. Now I see that he was most likely just deflecting the blame. Oh well, as long as it eventually comes out I'm happy.

    I checked with my local Best Buy today and they had 5 of the regular editions listed as 'in stock' for a release tomorrow. However, they only had two of the collector's boxes 'on order'. Meaning they probably will not have them available tomorrow.

    Some of the guys over at the Brave board have posted a few thoughts. Sounds like it is done well enough, though I'll probably stick with Japanese + Subtitles. Although I am curious to see how certain characters will be voiced later on, like the 11 Sol Masters in FINAL.

    I'm really glad I picked it up. Now off to find a version of the toy that won't make my wallet vomit.

    Good to hear. I'm heading up to a Best Buy tomorrow with a friend who wants to grab a copy of GGG, so hopefully they'll have some (even if their online stock reporter says they don't).
