View Full Version : Real Drive - why no license so far?

I am surprised that Real Drive has not been licensed already.
It is a sci fi show by Masamune Shirow, who did GiTS & Appleseed.
Is it too complicated for the average anime fan, & would not sell, or is it too new for R1 at present?
I'm also surprised that there is no Japanese BD release of it yet...

No one knows why certain things do not get licensed.
And you're rather underestimating the intelligence of the average person.

There was talk Ghost Hound was fairly expensive so it is possible anything with Masamune Shirow's name attached is as well.
Probably is all about cost to get versus what a R1 company thinks they could make in return for licensing it.

I have a feeling fans of old-men, diving, cyberspace and anime don't intersect very often.
That being said, I haven't seen enough of the show to say whether or not I'd purchase it on R1/A DVD/BD, but finding out Masamune Shirow was involved might get me to give the series another chance.
