>>Because of the overwhelming desire by fans to have this title released, Bandai Entertainment Inc.
will create a subtitle only initial release of the series in three parts. Vol. 1 of the sub only release
will contain episodes 1-9 and be released on July 8th for $29.98 with a pre-sale occurring the
weekend of Anime Expo 2008. Vol. 2 and Vol. 3 of the subtitled only version will be released in
August and September respectively. In early 2009, an all new English dub version will be
released with Japanese audio and English subtitles with both a regular and special editions. More
details on the 2009 release pattern and spec will be announced later this year.
I'm extremely happy about this. I think it's the best way they could possibly have released it, barring just doing a whole boxset of the entire thing right this instant.
