I'd grab that if only I hadn't watched it like 500 times already.

Awesome, I loved the scenery and animation within the series; if only Shinkai created another part to wrap off the ending better... nonetheless, it's a good series, especially the first part.

Oh my god! Finally re-licensed! I just had a feeling that if I checked AnimeNewsNetwork that I'd see a 5 Centimeters Per Second licensing!
Totally speechless right now!

well I am glad to see more access to anime on DVD, but it would have been nice to see something newer, like time of eve, but I guess you have to start small, and maybe this will lead to other shows, like shugo chara to get released on DVD, I know it is very popular,

This is something I would like to grab. I hope they include the ADV dub along with the Bang Zoom! dub.

So are they going to do some more DVD distribution if 5 cm. per second works out with them? I hope they take the next step and dub the anime they have licensed for streaming.

As long as the dvd includes the new dub I can't wait to buy it. I already own the ADV version, and I doubt Crunchyroll will try to get the rights for that dub.

Why has this not been posted as site news yet? This is big news for fans of 5 cm per Second and for Crunchyroll expanding in new directions.

Thats very cool and look forward grabing this when it comes out. I remember watching the ADV version of 5 cm. per second over a buddy's house. I like to see how Bang Zoom! dub. job differs.

Just listened to the ANNCast about this. The dvd will have the new Bang Zoom dub. Also Bandai-ent will be involved.

Crunchyroll please make sure this is sold everywhere (aka Amazon) not just Bandai's new online store. With Bandai's dvd production problems, slow release schelude, delayed releases, and high prices the last couple of years I have tended to avoid them unless it has been a show I really wanted to own. (like Code Geass) I was buying other shows like Gundam 00 but they just took to long getting the dvds out and I gave up.

Last off topic - For anime on dvd in the US Funimation is the best, Viz is second, Bandai is last. All other at this point don't really factor in.
