Argh! *throtle corporation!* Anime ranting  
Central Park Media press release from Animazement

"The CPM studio rep reconfirmed that the company has the rights to episodes 14-26 of Utena, not just the Black Rose Saga as sometimes reported. Release of the Black Rose Saga, however, is expected by the end of the year, and in his words, it will "make anyone who wasted money on an R2 DVD realize they wasted money." "

By the end of the _year_?? The second Rose Collection came out last year! Why does it take you more than a bloody year to translate these things? Perhaps if Americans learned to _read_ we could dispese with this whole dubbing idiocy which is presumably driving up prices and delaying releases!

And yeah, the people who bought the R2 version wasted their money, EXCEPT FOR THE FACT THAT THEY"VE ALREADY GOTTEN TO SEE IT UNLIKE THE REST OF US YOU FUCKHEADS!!!!

And then there's FUNimation.

Why in god's name are there _two_ different companies with the licensing rights to DBZ????

Pioneer has had a boxed set of the dubbed DBZ first season out for _ages_. FUNimation doesn't have one for the subtitled versions. It doesn't have any announced plans for it. My email to them about it got ignored. I hate them. I want them to die. Oh, and their website is a piece of crap too.

Because there were some hefty licensing/release issues, from what I hear. They've had the rights to it for ages, but they couldn't do anything with it, for reasons I don't fully know.

A lot of us who haven't bought the R2 DVD have already seen it, because we got fansubs before it was licensed (and subsequently pulled from dstribution.) It's not CPM's fault that you don't know how to find fansubs in a timely manner, even though I've given you this URL about 10 times. http://animemetropolis.com/kodocha And there are apparently a ton of digisubs available now, but I haven't gotten into that.

If that's true, it would be nice if they mentioned something about it on their home page, last time i checked they had nada information abotu Utena.

I restricted myself to commenting on the R2 version because that's what CPM talked about. And i'm sure CPM would take a _really_ bright view of me watching the fansubs instead. Regardless of the availability or lack thereof of fansubs, saying that people who got to see the series more than a year earlier "wasted their money" is just stupid.

Now that i actually have something that vaguelly qualifies as a computer, rather than a electronic abacus, i intend to look into the digital subs, but that's only been the case for about four days now.
