    SD BD

    Season 2: Japanese with English subtitles.

    Rights issues affect some music and voices have been resolved.

    Part 1: fall 2021
    Part 2: 2022
    Diskotek wins my award for studio of the year, I think... Project A-ko, Rose of Versailles, Battle Athletes, and now Kodocha.

    I've been wanting to add Kodocha to my collection for as long as I've known of it, but never got the original release since the previous licensor didn't have the whole series. 16ish months is a long wait though...

      Justin talked about how much easier it's become to clear songs by Johnny's artists since Johnny Kitagawa died. I hope it means one day we might see a Skull Man BD release featuring the original opening theme by Tokio, and a US BD release of the recent Captain Tsubasa remake featuring the original OP and ED themes.

          Also push FUNi to finish Monster Hunter Stories already and clear the One Piece songs they didn't the first time if any possible Blu-ray releases happen.

          Maybe someone deal with Konami for subbed Yu-Gi-Oh on disc again? There's also Ultraman Tiga & Dyna which I hope Tsuburaya & Mill Creek deal with due to this development.

          I know Discotek shrugged off getting more live-action stuff due to past sales but I would love if someone got the Hana Yori Dango J-Drama because I have Discotek's release of the sequel film and despite it's differences from the anime, I actually enjoyed it a bit more and it was always said that the reason they never got the show was because of Johnny's control and they had none for that film.

          Anyway, heard good things about Kodocha and was one of those doubting it would ever happen because of Johnny's but now that it actually will, I'll pick it up. 100+ episodes is a lot but if this is anything like Marmalade Boy & Hana Yori Dango in the dramatic area, it should be quite a fun watch.

            Good to see that the whole thing is finally coming. Back when Funimation licensed this, it was a big money loser for them and they abandoned the license halfway through. This show was all the rage in Japan back at the time, and I had to believe that licensing fees were too much for them back then and it's one of those shows that's big in Japan, but not so much internationally. But times are different now that makes it a much more favorable landscape. And seeing how notorious Johnny's is for not allowing their songs to be used internationally that it's a big accomplishment for Discotek to get it. Anyway, times are much different now and much more favorable to take on show like this.

              Just noting this here...from the fist JP SD-BD box:

OK, it's nothing very good, but it looks the same as the R2 DVDs with fewer compression artifacts during sequences with a lot of motion. But unbelievably, they appeared to have used masters meant for broadcast, with darkening of scenes with a lot of high speed motion (Thanks Pokemon!). I really can't believe they did that.

                I am late on this but I'm really glad this is coming back to print. I actually have the first volume of this from Funimation which I own for 5 years now.

                    Heh...I'm sure the first season especially is a pain in the butt to subtitle.

                        Completely forgot that they had rescued this, even though I've been in this thread before! I'll be preordering this soon enough.

                          Yaay. Got to design the new English logo for this, plus a little art cleanup and design direction! Package design by our good pal designer Gary who did an amazing job!

                          Also, this release has the original theme song, so yay there, too. Give some love to @worldofcrap for editing it back into every single dub episode.
