! I got an e-mail from AnimeVillage.Com last night, touting the "all-new"
! Anime Village web site that opened 2 Dec 98 -- the e-mails went out a

! The site is pretty much the same, content-wise, but the old wine has
! been poured into a new bottle. I'm glad I waited to try an connect to
! it -- even with the T1 connection here at Wasser, the pages were slow
! to load. Lots of sizzle, not much steak.
!
! The one item of interest was the "New for '99!" listing, covering the
! first 6 months (well, 7 -- they have a July entry in there) of the
! coming year. CCA wasn't listed, so it'll be shipping late in 1999, if
! at all. The good news is that AV will be carrying Aono 6 Go, Cowboy
! Bebop and Outlaw Star! If they also pick up Brain Powerd and Gasaraki,
! they'll really have it covered.
!
! Here's the list of upcoming items:
!

! It should be noted that I ordered the entire "box sets" of Gundam the
! Movies, Gundam 0080 and Gundam 0083 and have yet to see the boxes that
! will now ship with Episode 1 of the new stuff.
!
! So what's on the horizon? Well, if the statement about CCA coming out
! next year is indeed true, I'd expect to see F91 next, then the 08th MS
! Team OAV series and maybe even the Miller's Report movie, if it's as
! different from the OAV as I've been given to understand.
!
! The big question is where do they go next? Given its success in Japan,
! AV will probably be tempted to release Gundam W Endless Waltz. They
! can go either way -- OAV or movie -- on a single tape that tests the
! waters, demand-wise. The sales on GWEW could determine whether they go
! back and do Z and ZZ to bring the UC Gundam up to speed or do the
! Gundam W series instead.
!
! And then there's the Big Bang stuff. Will AV try for concurrent
! release in English or hold off awhile or not get the rights at all?
!
! Only time will tell....
