  • Saw an EXAMPLE of the new Evangelion color metal box. absolutely gorgeous.
    bright, brilliant colors. the design isn't set. making the box will take TIME,
    be prepared to wait a long time if you want this uber awesome metal box..
    (having seen an example, its worth it) we didn't see the final design, they
    are still working on it. It's a Paul Champagne.

  • ADV has DVDs planned, 7 a month through 2006 (!!)

  • Building a 3rd dubbing studio.

  • DHY is a 2 DVD mini set (like Shrek) has both dub long version and sub
    short version. the Japanese version had some non-voiced (by the Japanese) but
    they dubbed the scenes in English. commentary. new 10th anniversary logo.

  • AnimeOnDVD.com plugged many, many, many times. (yay!)
