I didn't see a topic for it here, apologies if this is a duplicate.

So, the first GinTama DVD set came out last month- how many of you have picked it up?

Even though I live in the UK, I imported. Given that GinTama's so obscure and unheard-of, I just want to support the show as much as I can.

The second volume is due for release on June 29th. I'm just wondering how long these DVDs will last. It pains me to say this, but I don't think GinTama's popular enough outside of Japan for these DVDs to sell very well, to be honest. =/

I didn't even know it was out yet.

Sentai Filmworks seems incredibly low profile. I haven't even been able to find a web site for them.


Give me a sec

ok

Amazon order placed

Not yet. It's the first non-essential thing on my list once I find a job though!

I'm kinda surprised Sentai hasn't advertised like... at all for it. At least work out something with CR and do a promo contest maybe.

And it's arrived.

Hazah for Amazon.

2 discs 13 episodes Subbed
To my surprise there is no English Dub

Trailers had some interesting ones too. Eyeshield 21, Yoichi, Hellgirl

These Sentai guys really need to let people know they exist

I got it. I walk into the store, saw it on the shelf and bought it immediately. Gotta have a hard copy to let people borrow so they can know how awesome Gintama is.

Maybe we should recommend a viral campaign. Gintama is very meme-able. Neo Armstrong Cyclone Jet Armstrong Canon building contest anyone?

Everyone's got a bazooka in their heart?

I also had no idea this was coming out until we saw it in Best Buy last week. This is going to make inflicting it on others so much easier! They *better* not stop at the first 26 though... ugh, that would be so sad.

I bought the first set the week it came out. I know they only have the license for the first 99 episodes, but I do hope enough people will buy them so they can get to my favorite episodes, too.

The only sad thing is that there is no dub. It's harder to convince other people to watch it when they find out they actually have to read. >.>; It also seems to kill any chances of it being on American TV in the future...

Also, does anyone know what is up with the second volume being 10 dollars more? I guess they are just trying to hook people in with a low-priced first volume?

I picked up the first volume, and I plan to pick up each successive release. I hope Sentai Filmworks stays with it and keeps releasing the series.

SUPPORT THE ANIME!!! BUY THE DVD!!!

I bought the first volume! I'm going to Hastings to get the second one this weekend
I really wish it was dubbed though
Posted 7/17/10
I've seen the whole series but I never bought the DVD. I find it a little disappointing because there's no English Dub but this is Sentai! They mostly release sub-only. (The only dub/sub they released recently is Clannad)
Something tells me that the DVD of this series won't sell very well in North America even though it's one of the longest running anime (over 200 episodes)

I got the second volume yesterday. Have they announced a third yet?

I hope they don't get cancelled due to low sales. =/
