Even though I already seen part 1 and 2 on here, I went ahead and brought the English Version of JoJo part 1 and 2 the moment they released them.. I noticed there no new for Part 3, the Third Generation..

Not to sound negative but.. this what I dislike about how USA don't release them all.. Only partly of them.

Like for example Fist of the North Star, they only made up to what 30 to 38 Episode of English Version? The Japanese Version one there over 200 of them!

I understand that it have to be above certain Quotes (spelling?) in order to continues the rest of the series or otherwise they won't be making money, but instead losing money..

Isn't English the Most poplar language in the world? I would think Japanese would add English Language with Japanese and English Subtitles come with it.. (I know wishful thinking :p).. Of course only Japanese would be making money, which they should be instead of America.. Since all USA are just translating the Japanese into English and Editing out certain scenes on there! >.>

The reason why this happens is because it either doesn't sell (Star Blazers 2199, and the reason why is totally on Voyager) or the Japanese company refuses to license the rest of the series (YAWARA!)

The first season was released by Warner Bros and many fans were very unhappy with the release because it was very bare bones and the only subtitles were CCs of the dub. Viz Media acquired the rights to the anime this year. I have heard that they said they'd do their own release of S1 as well as Stardust Crusaders (presumably with dubs because it's Viz) but I haven't seen a source for this.

I considered buying the first season on DVD (don't have a Blu-Ray player) before I signed up on here, but the packaging pretty much screamed to me "this would be a waste of your money". I'm not completely sure about this since it was a while ago, but I'd swear the box doesn't even actually say if it includes the dub, so I assumed it didn't. Now, this was before I started watching it on Crunchyroll and decided that I'd prefer to hear it in Japanese, at least initially, and before I even knew if there was a dub of season 1, but the box really doesn't even indicate what languages it's in. I'm pretty sure it just said "English subtitles". Hopefully, Viz will get on that shit and release a much more thorough box set with some actual special features on it, and actually get that Stardust Crusaders dub done.
