what audio codecs are they going to use if any at all

Doesn't it bother you that none of these questions are being asked/answered but were dropping huge amounts of cash on questionable merch?

Just wanted to hear what others thought.
I just assumed they were going to go with a similar approach for what they did with the DVDs. Two parts spread out with 3 discs each, 6 total.
They don't really answer much on the comments section, they refuse to answer the slacker backer question, so I can see the hesitancy. Ultimately I trust them to do at least an above average job.

I'm guessing they'll go with the same disc quantity as the JP release, assuming they have enough space for the additional audio tracks.

The more I consider their comments on the picture quality, the more I think they're just using the Japanese masters with no tweaking.

Based on their other kickstarters - I did Aria and I did Captain Tylor (which, okay, wasn't a kickstarter, but it might as well have been), I'm pretty confidant that they'll deliver the appropriate amount of necessary discs.

One big question I wanted to know about the blu rays they didn’t answer is are these going to be the grain reduced transfers?

Pledging for Monday was $10,459, for a total of $496,619, so only $3371 more is needed today to hit the $500,000 mark and the 5.1 audio for the Features disc. Sundays total was $9,136, So Monday actually posted an increase of $1,423 over Sunday. Looks like the final pledging push is starting now...

Almost at the $500K milestone. When I wake up in the morning, no doubt the last three stretch goals should be there.

I wish they still did the Kickstarter method to dub/continue to dub old shows

If Nozomi would do Kickstarters to dub the un-dubbed Gundam shows, I'd pay money. I don't know of anything else I'd pay for off the top of my head, but I'm open to it.

Not sure if they'd be able to do that because they don't have the license to any of the Gundam titles, Sunrise does. Sunrise gave up on finding someone to dump all of Gundam onto as the franchise historically didn't do well outside of Wing, and maybe SEED and 00. The arragement they have with RightStuf/Nozomi is that they're distributing those releases on Sunrise's behalf, and Sunrise is calling the shots. Think of it like the Crunchyroll distribution deals, Discotek, FUNimation, and Sentai are distributing those titles on CR's behalf, but CR is the one with the license.

How long until you guys think they’ll put up the final stretch goals?

They need to do it ASAP, so I assume, today. Though, I think it's possible they have to actually think up something for the final stretch goals, so who knows!

Just looking at the 5,000 ultimate backer tier. You would think that dropping that kind of scratch, you would get both lamps, not just one.

I was just thinking the same thing. You'd think they'd want to update it ASAP, since there are only 4 days left. I, too, am curious what the final stretch goals will be.

You won’t believe they still haven’t updated it very strange.

Yup, it’s very strange that we’re still waiting on the final three stretch goals. I have a feeling they’ll be pretty low-stakes. I also have a feeling they didn’t plan this far in advance.

Particularly when we're about $600 away from where the next goal would be.

They finally revealed the final stretch goals only one is a huge surprise.

Japanese 5.1 mix? I guess I should have seen that one coming, though I think that's something that Sunrise would have done already, if they had thought it was a good idea.

The linked image of the stretch goals didn't come through, but the final goals are....

$525K = Artbook Custom Deboss (I have no idea what that means.)

$550K = Interview with Rick Sternbach, longtime anime fan and Dirty Pair enthusiast, who worked in Hollywood for a few decades, on Star Trek and other properties.

$600K = Japanese 5.1 remix!
