A little less than that. All total it comes in around 300+mins. As I stated earlier Broken Blade is probably one of the best animated releases on Blu-Ray right now. 5/5 in PQ and audio.

How's the rewatch value of this story-wise, in your opinion? I've been hesitant to buy it since I haven't seen any of it yet, but it looked interesting...

Does anyone think that the limited Fate/Zero bluray set from Japan is gonna be especially hard to get? Like, I'm pretty sure that once it's gone, it's gone for good. But is there a lot of pre-order demand that would make it hard to find after its release date when a couple of reviews have come out?

Depends on how much you like the genre. If you're uncertain you might as well wait for a sale. It's a great release though.

Thanks for the reply. I enjoy mecha and fantasy, and I just saw that the art director was involved with Cowboy Bebop and Spice and Wolf (according to ANNs review, though I can't find his name in S&W credits on ANN), so I think I'll go for it.

Its really hard to say, I think it will go OOP soon after release but it really depends on just how many copies they actually make. Here is what Aniplex has imported to the US so far considering blu-rays:

The Garden of Sinners (OOP on day 1)
Read or Die (in stock)
Baccano (OOP)
Rurouni Kenshin Movies (in stock)
Puella Magi Madoka Magica (just released Volume 1)
55" Panasonic Viera 1080p HD 3D Plasma TV, 320GB Playstation 3, Onkyo HT-S5300 7.1-Channel Home Theater

354 Anime Blu-rays

Thanks, I really enjoy the longer episodes like they did in Katanagatari.

Only Garden of Sinners and, perhaps, the Rurouni Kenshin Movie/OVAs are imports. They are the Japanese releases imported to the US and sold at Japanese prices with translated booklets like the upcoming Fate/Zero vol.1 BD set. The other titles that you mention are US releases with different packaging and discs (except for Baccano!, which uses the Japanese Blu-ray masters) at better pricing.

I agree with your assessment but with the caveat that Baccano took a while to go OOP and The Garden of Sinners is still readily available at roughly the same price it was when it was released on the secondary market.

Not to say my opinion is the right one but I wouldnt be concerned waiting for the first reviews to hit before ordering.

Not really how many they make but how many they allocate from the Japanese release. Like they only allocated 840 Garden of Sinners blu-rays from Japan and those sold out no problem. I'd wager it'll be around 800 to 1,000 sets for Fate/Zero allocated to US, maybe even just a tad less than that. Depends how many English translation booklets they printed up. Although given its Type-Moon and how insanely large that fan base is in America, I wouldn't hold off too long in waiting to order.

It'll be limited here, but not limited over there so even if sells out here, you can get it through Amazon Japan, just deal with the horrible exchange rate and miss out on the English booklet. It's still just a bit cheaper to go that route anyways but it would be hassle if it came to problems with the set or shipping.

Default Black Lagoon

Has anybody heard of Black Lagoon to be released on Bluray anytime soon? I'm really starting to crave for that now as it being one of my favorites!

Sometime between Summer and the end of the year, with Funimation at the helm, there simply isn't no telling when exactly. I personally probably won't double dip on the title unless its leaps and bounds better than the DVDs (which may be unlikely). I find the Geneon DVDs to be amazing and extraordinary, same can be said for the Hellsing Ultimate DVDs.

I agree. Funimation's releases are not very good quality wise compared to
the other distributors. Very disappointing but true. Thanks for the info.

Took my friends kids to see Arrietty. The youngest was shifting in her seat near the end, but they both liked it. As for myself, while not quite up to snuff with their classics, I certainly liked it a lot more than the last 2 Ghibli films: the overly saccharine Ponyo and the utterly confused Tales From Earthsea. Because of Disney's coupons, I'll certainly be buying the blu-ray in its first week of release.
In 2007, I bought a PS3 for 4 specific titles; in 2̶0̶1̶4̶ ̶2̶0̶1̶5̶ 2016 the other half of them may finally come out for PS4.

Saw ef: A Tale of Melodies up for pre-order on Amazon. Not a single trailer for it can tell me anything at all about the show, however. Anybody know anything about this one?

edit: Never mind. More searching around finally gave me some answers. I really wish anime series had better trailers over here, just so I could actually get a taste of what they're like before checking them out.

Was looking for feedback on Legend of Legendary Heroes 1 & 2...how does it stack up to, say Recod of Lodoss War? Is better, worse story/art wise?
I'm thinking about getting this, especially if there's an Amazon price drop!

+ 1,000!!

I constantly check YouTube if I see a price drop on anything that looks good, but I have to settle for fan made trailers or just clips most of the time. Funimation is the only studio I know that releases a trailer made specifically for the upcoming packs, just not until a few weeks before release. Wish more studios would follow suit, and put them up about 2 months in advance.
