Any news on a Gundam Seed boxset being released? It's been at least a year since the final volume came out, and it's pretty much impossbile for me to find all 10 volumes available once. I liked the show when it was on CN and I want to own it uncut, but I'm also wondering if Bandai's giving up on that idea due to its poor reception here.
I've been considering the movies to tide me over, but from what I hear they're awful when compared to show, yet they do have some new scenes.

I personally don't know the answer to that, but the many Gundam fans here probably do.

Dunno, but all 10 DVDs sure do look kickass in the box that came with volume 1 of the show.

there was one released not too long ago on R4 so i'm guessing there should be one released here within a year (maybe within the next 6 months)

Please don't do that, it makes my eyebrows glow...

Eh, there might be a "all 10 volumes in the chipboard box" release, but I'd wager more money on two $40-$50 clamshell releases being announced sometime next year (Though Bandai might surprise us and release the first one in December). With Complete Collection I's cover probably being Kira & the Strike, and Complete Collection II's cover being Freedom vs. Providence.

You could buy the single volumes and support this anime properly.

It could be 2 years before they release a boxset, better yet they might not release one at all.

Oh, they'll release one, all right. The way Bandai's going, they're going to make sure every single one of their titles is clamshelled at some point. Hell, they've already clamshelled Planetes and Mars Daybreak and re-releasing the SEED Movie Trilogy, so I don't see why they wouldn't clamshell the series next year (Probably in Spring).

Support it properly? The guys just asking if an OFFICIAL boxset is coming out. They've even said they have issues tracking down all the seperate volumes. If this was a case of "Hey, where can I get a cheap SEED bootleg?" you'd have a point, but it isn't.

Of the 3 Madagascar shows we have, All Hail King Julien stands out with its title and location. Unlike The Penguins Of Madagascar and Madagascar: A Little Wild, this one takes place on Madagascar while the others are in New York through an alternate continuity. Conversely, AHKJ is the only one to not have Madagascar in the title.
