        Good, you should enjoy it.

        As for me, I'm just getting Ouverture since I already own the Geneon DVDs (and managed to get one autographed by Cristina Vee at ColossalCon a couple of years ago, which was very cool ). RM fans should enjoy the Ouverture OVA, especially the Suigintou supporters.

          Except the press release refers to it as a Complete Collection, which means you and everyone else will have to buy it again if they want the OVA's....

            No, if you read correctly the PR it says:

            In addition, the new ROZEN MAIDEN: OUVERTـRE DVD will be available as a stand-alone item, featuring a new English dub by production studio BangZoom! Entertainment.

              Sentai could include the OVA with the Complete Collection for those (like you) that didn't buy the original Geneon release or the collection that FUNi distributed. I think that the OVA stand-alone could be targeted for those like me that bought the original Geneon singles or the original collection.

              But the wording on the PR tells me that they won't include the OVA within the collection.

                  I'll second that sentiment, but I have no idea how likely that is. In another thread, someone said that the company that owns the international rights to Rozen Maiden is one that Sentai has licensed a lot of other shows from. However, I don't know what company has the international rights to Higurashi; it might be someone that Sentai doesn't work with.

                    The companies producing the anime series are completely different for each:

                    Rozen Maiden: TBS, Pony Canyon, Movic, Memory-Tech
                    When They Cry: Frontier Works, Geneon Entertainment, Dentsu

                    I guess some people assume that Geneon only licensed titles titles from Geneon Japan, but that just isn't the case. These titles have completely different owners in Japan, so I don't think Sentai getting Rozen Maiden should raise any hopes that they will rescue Higurashi (even if it could still be in the realm of possibility regardless).

                      I'm hoping for this as well, though unlike with Rozen Maiden, I think that Kai would be released sub-only should Sentai get this. Nevertheless, that's a great move on the part of Sentai so that someone who bought the Geneon version like myself can just get Overture without the need to double-dip on this.

                        Ya, I expect that too but quite frankly I'll take it.... I sold off my box on RM awhile back (bills to be paid) so I'd get this in support of getting a consistent collection.
