Only one I own is Escaflowne and I think its the lesser of those 3, so yea, I'm really hoping for some Spike and Starwind Blu-ray action soon. Get on it Funi!
Is the 3.0 spoiler policy gone?.... Cool, then I'm nominating myself as EvaGeeks 1# Sakura Suzuhara fan/nerd.

HAHAHAAH DISREGARD THAT HAHAHA SO FUNNY

What the fuck was that shit? I just waited five fucking hours in line only to be kicked out not 50 feet from the registration desk, all because what? Because no one stopped to think "Oh hey, maybe this registration system is highly vulnerable to a DDOS, intentional or otherwise? Or /was/ it the wifi? In which case, someone never stopped to think "Hey, maybe we should do this locally instead of over a public fucking network being used by tens of thousands of other people?"

Oh but it's ok, I got this nice little green slip that allows me to jump to the front of the line.... as did 999 other people. What in the fuckity fuck. I'm legitimately pissed.

MFW I spent 28 dollars on doujins. MFW a stand has retake for 25 each. MFW there's a really nice daki design but its on one of those shitty cheap vacuum sealed pillows. Gah I want to buy it and bring it to TEMs panel lol.

You can find back (body) pillows in any bedding store for decent prices. If yoy really like that, get it for the cover and ditch the cheap pillow. (No, never had a dakimaura but I know how comfy long back pillows are.)

Oh, and Retake original or All Ages? I still love that I own the HUGE Pengel Evangelion Ai book (adorable post-3I LAS).

Strongly tempted, but I'm loathe to spend $150 on a doujin I can't even read. Nice collector's item, though. After EoE for $50, though; maybe.

Edit: I gotta see if I can hunt down The Last Year of Ryohji Kaji while I'm here.

No no, to my understanding with these vacuum sealed cheapies the image is printed directly onto the pillow itself. This sucks not only because it makes washing it a bitch, it also uses a shitty fabric instgead of one of the high quality ones typically used by dakis.

As for Retake, they're the originals. They also have two huge volumes of After Story.

Still mindblowing to me how SM isn't as underground anymore as I thought it used to be. The Viz SM shirt I hoped for today sold out in 2 hours yesterday. Anybody checking out Viz's Moon Panel? 4 dubbed episodes according to Twitter. 2(?) Posters available too, apparently.

Feeling nervous whether or not Funimation will say anything about 3.0 at their panel. (They do have one, right?)

3:15 eastern. I'm gonna try to get in.

Edit: Funi panel isn't news, it's a fucking sales pitch. Really annoying.

Edit 2: 45 minutes in, finally some news. Sadly, it ain't Eva news. I don't even know why getting Bebop or Haruhi is news, those already have solid releases. Who gives a fuck?

Me. those releases aren't readily available anymore, let alone Blu-ray. Thanks Funi!...... But still WTF is going on with Eva?

Nobody asked about 3.0 or it wasn't a Q&A thing? I'd just ask a rep anyway, because seriously.

To quote wrestlin': "Fuck this company."

I mean, they're not done with redubbing yet?

No Q&A, they pushed it to the wire. Also, pretty clear they didn't know much. I should bug 'me at the booth tomorrow on principle, though.

@Bagheera: I see. Please do if you can. For the good of EGF! :gendoscheme:

I totally understand there's probably tons of legal behind the scenes stuff they can't mention to the public, but it is frustrating all the same.

Finally getting a U.S. release of Haruhi on blu-ray will be killer. The movie looked so good on blu, getting the series will match it in awesomeness.

I already own both versions of Bebop on DVD (the limited Bandai box-set and the Remix singles), and can't wait to double-dip (triple dip?) for the blu. This is my all-time favorite anime. The only question is what will the different premium editions (Amazon vs. Funi exclusive) entail? I won't buy both, so they better not screw us with extras or something.
Awesomely Shitty
-"That purace has more badassu maddafaakas zan supermax spaceland."
-On EMF, as a thread becomes longer, the likelihood that fem-Kaworu will be mentioned increases exponentially.
-the only English language novel actually being developed in parallel to its Japanese version involving a pan-human Soviet in a galactic struggle to survive and to export the communist utopia/revolution to all the down trodden alien class and race- one of the premise being that Khrushchev remains and has abandoned Lysenko stupidity
