        So they might actually finish it on DVD? I'm very surprised since I had figured they were just going to forget about it.

                App downloaded! And it is nice to see Monster mentioned again, I just hope there's a followup to that comment.

                  That's the most positive response on Monster in a long while (even if it's a longshot). I guess it's a wait and see.

                    Not going to be fooled by Viz again. It's going to have to be completely released before I even attempt to purchase it.
