Haven't opened my Sentai set yet, and already a new version. This has been happening to me way too often. Unless it's significantly better, not gonna double dip. At least now it'll be easier to recommend considering Gkids actually distributes their stuff to Canada.

Sentaiís release came out in 2014 and is also OOP. So this a weird complaint to have.

Nah, I'm just saying I got it not too long ago, not complaining about the new release, just my bad timing.

Sounds like it's from a new 4K restoration as well.

Wonder if it'll pop up in 4k across the pond like Future Boy Conan. Either way hoping they don't give it the DNR treatment.

I doubt it. “Future Boy Conan” has more weight for a 4K just due to Miyazaki being a bigger name than Anno (at least in terms of the general public). I’ll be curious how the 4K restoration is since some episodes, in the old HD master, had sub-VHS shots inserted.

Considering their Ultimate and Collector’s releases for Neon Genesis Evangelion both sold out before release, I think you may be underselling Anno’s name a bit there. Plus, Anime Limited have a pretty good track record of picking up most of GKIDS anime output (minus Ghibli.) I think there’s a really good chance we’ll see some kind of announcement regarding Nadia in the near future.

Neon Genesis is an extremely popular series thatís been unavailable for legal purchase for almost twenty years. Of course it was going to sell fast.

I've been holding back on buying the Sentai's release all these years because of the price and I just don't like big yellow subtitles. I'm glad I waited it out since Gkids is going to re-release this on BD (assuming that's what they meant by home entertainment).

So this 4K restoration is new and not the same master that was used for the JP and Sentai's release?

I hope they release a 4K UHD BD too, but that's a long stretch.

the funny thing about this is that miyazaki is credited with conceiving up the story.

Glad to see this is coming as I wasn’t aware of the Sentai release until after it went OOP. The fact that it’s being sourced from a new 4K master is icing on the Hideaki Anno cake.

True, but thatís not completely accurate. I mean, ADV put out one last release in 2008 (US/UK). So it hasnít really been OOP for twenty years.

I think my point still stands. Evangelion, in general, is one of the most popular anime franchises of all-time. Youíd be hard pressed to find somebody who hasnít at least heard of the series. Iíd also argue Shin Godzilla and the upcoming Shin Ultraman (heís writing and producing, not directing) only add to name recognition. Thatís not to mention Gunbuster and Kare Kano which are both well known titles many attribute to Anno and not just Gainax. GKIDS are even advertising it as Hideaki Annoís Nadia.

Wonder if they'll go for Kare Kano if that license expires or Re:Cutie Honey or his earlier live action stuff.

Only paid 15 for Sentai’s Nadia, so I’ll certainly double dip.

I'll wait and see if they release a limited edition or if GKids manages to include the 87 minute film.

I can imagine Discotek will get Re:Cutie Honey/his early live action films, especially now that they have a label for live-action movies. I could see Kare Kano being either GKIDS or Discotek if Nozomi lets it lapse.
