Taken that they've just revealed the new dub on CR, I would say that points to a new release in the USA fairly soon.

However all the ADV dub lovers really don't like it. :roll:

My guess is that the ADV dub is all tangled up in the Sojitz mass licence withdrawal. Which is why 5cm disappeared.

*mutter mutter* Did ADV actually dub it? (never bothered to check after everything went to crap)

I've only seen it sub, which was a pain as I couldn't take in all the detail and yelling 'Oi! REWIND! I missed the last caption!' in a cinema doesn't go down well :)

Yes they did. From all the gushing on TAN, I think it was one of their best. Didn't sell too well from what I hear though.

Darn, from a quick scan of the CR stream dub version I have to say its so-so. Place promised was a good dub.

Somebody forgot to kill the MS streams so it looks like it's going to be more of a weekend rather than a day. :D

They seem to be no longer available now. I never got to see The Place Promised in Our Early Days. :( God damn it.

The hint was in the title. 24hrs, even though they did run over by 12 hrs or more.

All is not lost though, it's only a fiver on play.

They did, and it must be the only ADV dub in years not to have Chirs Patton in it, perhaps he had a cold or something that week.

The DVD is now worth a few times more than what I paid for it perhaps its time to sell up. :twisted:

The english title may need a little less literal translation. :)

And when did he become part of the Ghibli clan? ;)

He looks about 12, but he's older than me. :(

I don't think I'll be watching imagine-nation again, the presenters really are dreadful now, still it was interesting to hear a bit more about the guy.
