Re: Aniplex of America licenses Sword Art Online
Well I am hoping for a dub, maybe the 25 episode series could be split into 4 parts and sell for $49.99 MSRP each for Blu-ray? That would put it closer to a more typical American-style anime release while still a price premium. But if they really want to reach the more mainstream MMORPG fanbase, it would need even lower pricing, but going by Aniplex's history that is not going to happen.
I'll be waiting to see what kind of release this gets, but I am not overly optimistic on its chances of getting a dub or "low" pricing.
