DVD 9!  
I was browsing the Official hagaren site, and, as always, looking for information about the second OST ( I want the woah woah song. I NEEED the woah woah song. and maybe the new al speech theme. and, for good measure, the PAINFUL ISHVAL CHORUS THING.). I found this instead.

DVD 9. With Greed on the cover. Mmm. Greed.

This led me to a lot of questions!
1)Is anyone planning on buying this, and if so, could they scan the cover when they get it so I can love and molest worship you forever?

2)Why is Greed on the cover of DVD 9? Japanese DVDs usually only have 2 episodes per DVD on them... so Greed shouldn't be showing up until DVD... 15 or so? do the japanese Hagaren DVDs have more than 2 episodes per DVD, so that already they are releasing the DVD with GREED THE GODLY on it?

3)They'd BETTER keep the japanese DVD covers for the US release, dammit.

4)Why was greed added to THE LIST? why? He was so sexy! If they had made him a recurring character like hughes was, or Roy is, or whatever... I'd have loved this series 1000000 times more. And I love it a lot already. So. That's a lot of love.

oh, and while, I'm at it, does anyone know what this is?

The Japanese Hagaren DVDs have 4 eps per DVD-- 9 has episodes 31-34. It actually says on the DVD pages which episodes are on the DVDs...

I've found that in the Japanese release the first DVD will have two episodes on it, same with video, and the other DVDs will have 4.

And I have a suspicion that 'this' is a drama CD -- saw it in the drama CD collection when I was in Book Off yesterday.

Nice cover. Though you are kidding yourself if you think they will stay so simple and beautiful in US release. All DVD/Manga covers must be gaudy and tacky. It's the law. I'm sure FUNimation will put their FMA logo all over the covers sadly. ^_^;

Well, the GITS covers were neither gaudy nor tacky... neither were the FLCL ones. The FLCL ones were actually the japanese covers, which made me squee with joy. We can only hope that funi will listen to the fans in this and NOT fuck up the covers. :D;

The link is for the Hagaren Special Radio DJ CD

What's on it, I'm not entirely sure but I see the names of Roy (Okawa), Hughes(Keiji*?*), Winry (Megumi) 's voice actors (as special guests apparently) in addition to Ed's(Romi)and Al's(Rie). There's a bonus track and an official sticker.

Whoever knows more, correct this or add to this, please.

3)I think they will...but my knowledge of Japan to North America transfers is dry so I'm not entirely sure. It seems though Pioneer stuck with the original covers for thier Chobits DVDs though. I know nada about Funimation (They might though, you never know).

I believe that the DVD count is supposed to go to about 15 or so maybe 13 or 14 even.

Why is Greed on the cover of DVD 9?

Because they can and they feel like it?

That picture of Greed seriously reminds me of the Ian Thrope picture earlier in the posts when Olympics began, rofl.

I'm hoping that they'll change the awful white text though; it drives me absolutly insane (particularly DVD 5.). Maybe offer it as a reversable dvd cover or a poster of it? The art is beautiful; graphic design overall as a DVD cover = wtf.
skeptisch: aah! [Dennis\screamy]lelldorin on August 28th, 2004 09:57 am (UTC)
I completely agree with you about the text thing. they should have done the smart thing and put it at the very bottom of the cover. That way Greed's sexiness would not be impacted by horrible generic arial font.
angsty lemon ukewabisuke on August 28th, 2004 01:25 pm (UTC)
yeah. or give it a nice title logo instead of copping out and using really generic font that looks HORRIBLE against the usual warm gray background. It looks like a watermark so people won't steal the image. Who decided on that anyways?

Umm..and Greed is tan? Whuh? XD

The CD is the RadioDJ CD, but its not a drama, its just the voice actors sitting around talking. Literally about anything. Most of the time is just Romi and Rie goofing off like giggly girls like they tend to do when they get together but Rie doesnt really say much other than make cute noises-_-*
Hm, what else, uh they seiyuu all take the which-character-type-are-you-quiz and all get different characters than who they play and then go on about that for a while, Romi takes a tour of Arakawa's manga studio and talks to some of her assistants, while Arakawa's part is played by a moo-cow toy and we never get to actually hear her voice.
And yeah, it goes on like that for a while.
If you dont understand Japanese its a totally useless CD, but if you do its pretty entertaining, tho I still think Rie is mental as she literally contributes only an occassional "nya!" or "hoi!" or "un!" in her helium-inflated "natural" voice, while the rest of the cast just fucks off and talks about anything XD

First thing I focused on was Ed's ass.

I really, really hope they keep the covers...but I don't think there's much hope for that.

I'd honestly hope that when the DVDs do come out, that they try to cut back on the number of volumes, after all, it's 52 episodes long and they should not put like 3-4 episodes per disc.

Oh, and does anyone have a link to the new intro song? Gotta love the Sin fights.
