    I wonder how Christianity and the United States government is going to handle this. I expect huge terror attacks, religious conflicts, and massive changes in culture.


    Your new god.

    Anyone know if there will be nasty edits? Or if the...music in that certain episode will...change?

    From what I understand, the Japanese DVD release has certain 'improvements' over the TV broadcast. This is starting to become standard practice in Japan to counter the effects of Fansubs and YouTube and encourage the sales of DVDs...

    Anything confirmed yet?
    I mean, those "improvements" should be immune to ripping from fans because the new content would end up on the internet anyway if they weren't.

    I wonder if there will be a english dub option? Probably not, but I hope so.

    There is not a security system, copyright protection, or any kind of anti-piracy device in place that has not already been or will not be broken.

    Once the english version of this series is released, expect a Dual Audio release to hit the popular Torrent sites that allow licenced material with in a few months. (The likely groups that would release it i expect to be either AnimeHQ or Anime4ever, which are the two best groups for these kinds of releases, in my opinion anyways.)

    If they do make an english dub I hope they don't ruin anything by it. If they realease it on dvd I hope they make it only in japanese with optional english subtitles

    ...All anime dvds will always have dual audios. If you don't like the dubs then watch it in original Japanese with English subtitles.
