    Yeah, they did, the rights might have expired and went back to Toei though...

    Too bad the old DVD's had dubtitles as I was curious about that as well. Hopefully, these will have accurate subs, but they probably won't...

    It would be awesome if S'more ever decides to release Digimon on DVD.

    If Toei is working on a Xros Wars dub, they first need to find a network interested in airing the show. If they do find a network that's interested in the show, I hope that it'll be either Cartoon Network or Nicktoons.

    I guess I would rather have S'more release Xros Wars on DVD, instead of Well Go USA. When Well Go USA was releasing Data Squad on DVD, there was a yearly gap with the two sets they released.

    As for BoBoBo, I enjoyed the series when it was airing on Cartoon Network, but I don't like it enough to buy the series on DVD.

    You mean you didn't write a 14 chapter fanfic of it or anything?

    It's a very good day!

    You just made me think (and it hurts :P ) -- Play it the same way it did on CN/Toonami, I feel Bo-BoBo could be a nice fit for Nicktoons. It's very random, the unexpected always happens. Yeah, it could work... and leave the original intro like CN did

    I agree, Bo-Bobo would be great for Nicktoons.

Rather, they're releasing them on Toei's behalf (with S'More merely publishing and E1 distributing), which would mean that any dubs would be previously existing versions (such as with Bo-bobo). In other words, if they wanted, they could release other "Toei on Demand" titles (that haven't already been released by other companies) as well, such as Gaiking: Legend of Daiku-Maryu (which is the more recent version from a few years back, and not the original 1970s version), which incidentally replaced Bo-bobo in its original Japanese timeslot on TV Asahi.

    In short, both this show and GE999 are, for all intents and purposes, coming from Toei themselves. With this in mind, I only hope they don't suffer the same fate as those ill-fated "Toei DVDs" from a few years back (e.g.: bad authoring/encoding*, "dubtitles" [i.e., where the subtitles are nothing more than a transcript of the dub], hard-to-read subtitles, etc).

    *I've been told that this included among other things a scheme where you would play one episode, and instead of going to next episode, you would automatically be taken to the main menu.
    At the least I support this move and I hope it could see the release of some more obscure shows like Bobobo and the others you mentioned. I've wanted a real DVD of Bobobo for a long time though.

    Toei began dubbing Digimon Savers/ Digimon Data Squad nearly 3 months before they announced that Jetix would be airing the series since it was the home of all their other Digimon shows. However Toon Disney/Jetix only had broadcast rights. They never had script rights, alteration rights, music rights, streaming rights, etc. Toei managed to hold on to all other rights for the series, which is why Well Good was able to start releasing the Data Squad episodes on DVD's. In my opinion it's more important to get a dub of something like the first 13 episodes ready and then shop it to potential networks to air it, like CN, Nicktoons, and Toonzai on CW4Kids. Whoever acquires the airing rights then has episodes immediately available, and then Toei isn't forced to rush episodes out to stay ahead of the airing schedule (unless 2 new episodes are aired every week). It doesn't change that it's great news that Bobobo is getting a full series DVD release, though I'm a little surprised they aren't doing a DVD/ Blu Ray combined release.

    From S'more Ent. Facebook page (3/6/12)

    we're projecting release of bobobo part 2 in september, 2012.
    Thanks to WTK for that info.

    Both Amazon and Wal-Mart list the release date as April 10 now but Right Stuf still lists the original March 27th release date.
    If you want the FUNimation Channel, click here for more information (remember if there is no demand for it, you will never get it).

    The thing is, my preorder still says it's going out at on release date. I wonder if it had to do with them having to push it back due to not enough dvds produced for the orders...

    I guess I'll find out at the end of the month.
