This is one of my favorite Pokémon movies. Sure, I hate when the plot has no real villain, but otherwise it was pretty good for a Pokémon movie.
When I'm rich and/or no longer jobless, I want all of the anime DVDs (instead of just unofficial sources).
Anyone think they might be doing this in part because Mewtwo is in movie 16? It's a bit of a stretch, but there could be a connection.
Excuse me, but I reported this to BulbaNews DAYS before Yoshi1001 and even made a thread for it in the Anime Section. Can't I be credited too?
I wonder if this movie and the one following it will ever be released on DVD in the UK?
Awesome. This is my absolute favorite Pokemon movie and it's one of the reasons why Lucario is my favorite Pokemon. I'll have to get it sometime after it comes out. I hope that it doesn't include that Mastermind of Mirage Pokemon special though. I hated how that was included with the original release of the movie and it wouldn't make much sense to include it here when the tenth anniversary has come and gone.
Just to set the record straight, I posted this on my site's blog Thursday morning before leaving for US Nationals (furthermore, I tweeted it about an hour before writing the post). I figured it could stand to reach a larger audience, so I wrote up a Bulbanews article based on my blog post, not knowing of Fennekin's post (I'm glad someone else noticed this, however).
It's probably to bring it in line with the other PUSA/TPCi/Viz releases. That should mean widescreen. Also probably saves a few bucks by not having to print the MoMP disc anymore.
It'll be interesting to see what develops. I noticed that the current studio listed is "Warner Home Video", this was initially listed for the Rival Destinies volume on set that releases two weeks before, but later changed to Viz with some additional information (if I had to guess, I'd say that someone from Warner makes the initial entry that populates Amazon, then later Viz sends one in). I think whether this one ends up being widescreen depends on whether a widescreen version was made earlier and not released at the time (we saw this with movies 6 and 7).
I am glad they are re-releasing the movie. I downloaded the movie to watch and judge how good the movie is. I really like it and is one of my top favorite Pokémon movies. I can't wait and buy an actual copy. Did they mention if it is going to be on Blu-Ray or not? Will it also include the original Japanese dub as well? I don't care either way, though, I just want to know.
You think the new character and Pokemon designs suck. Well, my art degree says your arguments are invalid.
This is, like, the best pokemon movie ever. If they include the original Japanese version as well, then I might consider buying it.
All you need is M-E-G-A-N-E
While providing the Japanese version of the movie in this release would be all kinds of awesomeness, it's pretty unlikely, if not impossible. TPCI hasn't really shown any interest in releasing the Japanese versions of any of the movies and I'm not even sure if they could do that, or if the process of getting the Japanese version included with the dub would be worthwhile to them. So, it will most likely be a dub-only release.
