Default Mononoke (TV series) - Worth a blind-buy?

Hey all, I stumbled across an anime called Mononoke while searching for the Ghibli title a while back, and I was wondering if it's worth a blind-buy. Best Buy currently has the DVD on sale for $9.99, which is pretty good. It look really unique visually. I read it's a spin-off of Ayakashi: Samurai Horror Tales, which I also haven't seen. Would I need to see that first to get into this one? Thanks for any input

Fan-made trailer

Wrong forum, but ANN's user ratings give it an 8.6 (Excellent), and here's its main thread.

Really hoping against hope that this big celebration of the 15th anniversary means we also finally get a blu-ray release of the series...!

When I was working the box office at my old movie theater job, one guest had a Mononoke tattoo on her arm. I pointed out the show it was from, and she seemed really thrilled that someone knew what it was.

I have a few things I wanted to ask:
  1. Is the blu-ray regionless?
  2. Would there be any special features contained on the blu-ray disc, or other things within the blu-ray package?
  3. Are there any stretch goals planned for the Kickstarter/Ubugoe?
  4. Is it possible for there to be any theatrical releases of the movie beyond Japan?
…

I will answer the questions according to each number.
  1. The Blu-ray will be region-free.
  2. At this stage, there will be no special features in the Blu-ray package.
  3. Stretch goals are currently under consideration. We will let you know as soon as it is decided.
  4. We are currently considering theatrical release outside of Japan

Thank you!

Makes me wonder since it is getting a theater release in Japan from what I can gather, if it will get a BD release later just minus the English subtitles.

I'm sure your not allowed to say but.... are you considering releasing the blu ray at a later date to the public?

Sorry for the awkward question....im a little on the broke side this month....but still being a big fan wanted to pledge something!

The Blu-ray will be sold only on kickstarter and will not be released outside of Japan at this stage.

Thank you for your question.

On top of that it says it won't be sold outside of Japan. That means that there might be a chance for a Japanese only retail release maybe...
