Yeah the charge us an arm and a leg here for anime.

Anime is tending to be expensive for some reason. Lately I saw "Fushigi no Umi no Nadia (Secret of Blue Water) The Movie" for 40 E! To make the number bigger, that's about 55 USD these days - for an 80 minute or so movie! Such insolence! Why is it so expensive!?

Here's my new policy for review anime (at least the titles I review): I will try to wait until at least a few volumes of the series is released so I can get a good idea of the dubbing in the US version (kind of what I did for Haruhi). I have an active NetFlix account so I can usually get the latest series when they are released without having to go out there and buy every single disc when they come out.

However, if it takes a long time for an anime to get licensed and released on DVD here in the states, I don't think it's in anyone's interest to wait until they are licensed, since some anime may take years to get licensed if they aren't as popular with the mainstream fanbase as others.

Spaz, that's good enough for me. A well written review is worth some time.
Since I am not enabled to always chase after the lastest stuff I can wait...

I have a feeling that anime is going to get licensed a lot quicker nowadays. It only took a year for Haruhi to be licensed and released here in the States, which is a pretty short turnaround time all things considered.

That's fine with me too. It just irks me a little when I hear about great anime that's most likely never going to be imported. Like Banners of the Stars 3, bastards.

ANd yeah imports I think are going to keep expanding rapidly. Still I think we're getting close to critical mass. There just aren't enough good anime coming out and getting attentiong from among the slug. Plus the orginality is sorely lacking in a lot of anime, at least to me.
