    PREORDERED.

    I was kind of starting to wonder if the possibility was off the table after all, but nope, Bandai Visual came through for me once again!

        Yes, it is. It says so in the product information listed on the linked Amazon Japan pages.

          Seeing as this is a Sunrise title it be nice for this to be license rescued for a Bluray release down the road.

            Welp, just for kicks, I shot off an e-mail to Bandai Visual asking for the existing subtitles and dub to be included, and at least the subtitles. I also included a comment once again to try and explain that the sorts of overseas folks who bother to track their releases and spend the extra money to import them generally prefer the Japanese audio version, and therefore including subtitles is useful, and situations where only the dub is included such as Ghost in the Shell or Macross Plus are far less desirable.

            In retrospect, I just realized that of all the releases of theirs I mentioned, I failed to include some of the best and most ideal examples like My-HiME and Haruhi which include both the subtitles and dub. Oh well. They'll either get the point I'm trying to make as I typed it, or they don't care quite enough in any case such that more examples would make a difference.

            The lack of either the dub or subtitles won't stop me from buying these sets, but it sure would be nice if those things were added, particularly when it comes to me being able to watch the sets with other people I know who need subtitles or prefer dubs.

            Also, since my pedantic hat happened to be nearby, I wonder if perhaps this thread, being in the JP forum and all, should actually be (correctly) titled "New Mobile Report Gundam Wing BD-Boxes" rather than using the (incorrect) "Mobile Suit" title wording that Bandai Entertainment applied to the series in the U.S. for marketing purposes. Guess it's not that big a deal, but hey, that's just what happens when Hayate puts on the pedantic hat.

              I'm going to keep an eye on this until some reviews are out. Cautiously optimistic...

                  Looking sharp! Fingers still crossed that the actual content turns out to be fantastic instead of perhaps just great.

                      I definitely like the look, though I admit I am sad that they couldn't (or didn't try to) get Shukou Murase to contribute some character art, being the series' original character designer and all. He may have gone on to do some directing and whatnot, but it's not like he's been particularly busy as of late.

                            Noin!

                            Looks just as good as, if not better than, the outer box for the first set. Which I'm really looking forward to getting this month.
