More FUNi Blu-Ray On The Way: Eden of the East, Desert Punk, Etc

Get ready to empty your wallets!

Man, how many times have I typed Blu-Ray already today? Sheesh.

Anyway, FUNimation has confirmed some new upcoming Blu-Ray releases via their Anime Source pamphlets-- at least tentatively, since sometimes things get mentioned that don't actually come through. That said, the definite titles are...


 Afro Samurai

Not yet dated but still mentioned... 


I don't know about you but I am already drooling over Eden of the East on Blu-Ray. I'm guessing the Afro Samurai listing is both the TV series and the subsequent movie as one box, since both came out on Blu-Ray individually already. I'm pleasantly surprised to see Rin on the list-- presumably that means it's selling well --and I can't wait for Casshern Sins, too.

How about you guys?    What on this list might be worth shelling out for Blu-Ray?

Rin and Eden are on my Must Have NAO list. The rest I'm just buying out of habit since I'm buying more on Blu-Ray in general.

I'm halfway there!
 
the quality on the Rin DVDs were actually, really, really good. If I had the ability to rechoose later, I might consider the Blu-Ray, but without knowing more, I'd have to say the DVD is not a terrible alternative if it'll save you some bank.
