ADV Has Clannad
By Marc | September 28th, 2008

After getting both Air and Kanon and being rather proud of the work put into them, and Sojitz screwing up all their stuff for nearly a year now, ADV has finally popped back with a real swinger after announcing some junky live action movies and an OVA no one cared about.

ADV had Clannad.

Due to the NYAF going on this weekend and ADV being elsewhere, it appears few places have picked up on the news yet.

They’ve only really been back for a month and already have one of the most awaited shows there is (not sure I care though, tired of shows that end depressingly, don’t know how Clannad ends though) makes you wonder if ADV may have any other licensed suprises they just haven’t revealed yet.

Will There Be Extras On Funimation’s Version of Nerima Daikon Brothers
By Marc | August 18th, 2008

Am I the only person curious how Funimation will do Nerima Daikon Brothers?

ADV’s three volume release had quite a few really good extras (I don’t think anything would beat the live action NDB).

ADV’s 3 disk thinpak had none.

What will Funimation’s version have?  I hope they keep all the extras in what will no doubt be a 2 disk thinpak box.

ADV and Their Amazing Changing Boxes
By Marc | August 12th, 2008

I’ve gotten a few questions from friends about this, saw Nebs wonder about it, and seen at least two people claim they had to for ‘legal reasons’, so I felt it was about time I explain what is up with ADV re-releasing all kinds of old thinpak boxes they’ve done with new covers, and why new covers equals more sales.
