Would you import MAR from the UK?
I'm just curious. For as far back as I can remember, the UK market gets a slice of the US market in terms of sublicences and Region 2 releases. If we want the full choice, we have to import Region 1 as well as our market just isn't big enough to support everything that the US gets.
But for the first time in a long time, the UK is getting something that the US hasn't. Manga Entertainment are releasing MAR in the UK in thirteen episode boxsets. So far we're up to set 3, with the fourth release due in January. That's 52 episodes, almost halfway through. As I understand it, Viz pulled the plug on the DVDs around ep 16 in the US.
The pound-dollar exchange rate looks much better from the other side of the Atlantic for once, so would you import MAR from the UK, bearing in mind you'd need a multi-region player, and will have to put up with NTSC-PAL conversion issues?
