    So they haven't received their masters. Yeah, I don't see this getting released in November (with only two weeks left). It shouldn't be surprising since a JP DVD-Box is getting released on August 8th.

      If the Japanese want a delay they could just release the English version first (since the R2 set is Japanese only) and do the Subtitled release next year.

        But can they release an English version without the masters?

          Apart from GE999:ES, nothing here I really want.

            So, that being the case, it makes me wonder whether they have something else lined up as a potential November release (in case they don't get the Samurai Pizza Cats masters in time), or whether Nemo would be their only title for the month.

              Wouldn't the English version come on different masters, since it was so altered from the original? Unless Discotek is aiming to pull a Media Blasters/Voltron by editing the Japanese masters to synch with the English version, but that's quite an undertaking.

                I would imagine so (the episode count was also different). I guess I'm not familiar with how the masters comes in and how much the English version was altered.

                  The question is though, even if they have the English version masters already, since they are releasing the two versions separately, would they really want to have different release dates for them? That would probably annoy more than a few people who were looking to either get the unavailable one, or even both. So best bet is that they will wait until they have everything in order to release each set in pairs with each other. If it wasn't being split up into multiple volumes, it might be more likely to ship separately, but I think it would be better for them to tie each release together.

                    Yes, they would be different masters since the English version was edited on tape instead of film. Disregarding this aspect, it sounds as though the situation affects both versions because it's from the same licensor.

                            Discotek pretty much solidified itself as one of my very favorite companies when they announced Samurai Pizza Cats. I've been a big fan of what the company's been doing since day 1. I think I can count on one hand the number of titles Discotek's released or will release that I don't plan to purchase at some point.

                                I wish. I was looking into getting the older releases but they're so expensive. I like the movies and the first season(got those cheap enough but missing 2-4)
