:anime: Bandai Visual USA Licenses Gunbuster (sounds familiar...) & Wings of Rean...

In the first "real" official post of HardDoor, I suggested that Bandai Visual USA might one day bring Gunbuster over to the US for re-releasal. Now, it looks as if that is finally coming true, as the company announced their license for the OVA and the new Yoshiyuki Tomino project Wings of Rean, a spinoff of Aura Battler Dunbine, at Anime Expo 2006. This is great news, as Gunbuster is making its first DVD appearance in North America, in which I deduce that the remastered set will be utilized and translated for here. Wings of Rean is a surprise, as it was not a show that was expected to be announced anytime soon, not to mention that ADV, who has Dunbine, did not get to it. But hey, if they can show both anime the kind of care they took with Patlabor, I'll be more than happy.
