FUNimation has just announced they are planning on releasing two season sets later this year.

Well, I know when I'm doing my next Grande Rewatch. ;D Hopefully RightStuf's promised Irresponsible Captain Tylor's re-release will happen by then.

Funimation also rescued Welcome To the NHK! after ADV dropped the ball and they'll be releasing Bamboo Blade and S1 of Druaga. I'm very happy with them.  :D

Yeah on it being license.   ;D  However; I hope Funimation does it correctly which I doubt seriously (like a bad translation, change the song's wording, hire poor voice actors).   ???

And the stupid likelihood of erasing any Japanese songs.

I don't think that's too likely with FUNIMATION. I'm the wrong guy to ask about English dubs, though. I think they all sound terrible  :-\

you mean they changed the OP/ED of Tsuby? That's rather unfortunate, even though I'm not overfond of the OP/ED I hate to see anything altered to that degree.

No they just took out most of the inserts.  Any insert that was in Japanese was erased.

Fortunately it was just on the dub, which by the way wasn't exactly splendid to begin with (with the exception of a few performances and the various fly-by-night cameos of CLAMP characters) the sub retained everything.  Still me being a person who prefers dubs, I expect it to retain it's original quality.  I really really hope they don't do that with El Caz.  I'm not expecting a grand dub, (the only FUNi dub I think was beyond perfect was Fruits Basket) but I still want to watch it in English.

As long as the subtitles don't change the translation of "Do you have any last words?" I'll be happy. ;D As for the dub, unless it's realy good I'll probably pass. Don't need to fix what ain't broke.  :)

They also did that with the One Piece dub and provided an unchanged Japanese audio version. So odds are that's what Funimation will do with El Cazador.

FUNi did it back in the day when they put animes on TV and naturally they wanted to reach a broader audience, but I still think it's a stupid thing to do with something that's just going to DVD

Has anyone watched insert songs in the online stream? It occured to me that Forest, as it is, is in English and Cazador is in Kajiuran; the only Japanese song I can think of is cazador del amor which I can't recall as actually being used in the series. So, Cazzy should be able to avoid any broad changes on that score...

I watched it online as far as I know the songs are intact.  I don't know which is which that plays El Cazador or Cazador del Amor but so far so good

I think (not sure it's been a while) that cazador del amor is only sung at the end of episode 25, and el cazador is only sung piecemeal (the instrumental part is that which you hear at the end of nearly every episode). It's the same song just japanese version and kajiuran version.

Just out of curiosity, why is it split into two sets, and why are they almost $50 each?

Has anyone seem them anywhere for cheaper than that?

It's a new marketing model FUNimation is doing and yeah while it's kind of a double dip it's still a lot more practical than 4 episode singles.  Though really it's probably a product of the Japanese market more than the American Market.  With falling DVD sales but fans pulling one way they seemed to have found a best of both worlds for now. 

Rightstuf has the sets going for about 30 bucks a piece (a whole lot cheaper than Retail.)  If you wait long enough though you could probably jump in on a sale and get them even less.

Kinda wish I'd held off on buying these now. They released the single, complete collection and it has got an awesome cover.
