Good to know as I just got an e-mail from CD-Japan that my copy shipped (should be at my door in a few days); not cheap though as with shipping charges, etc. it's about $95.00
(but yeah, I don't 'splurge' on myself that often and I have fond memories on the original "Space Battleship Yamato" series - so I'm will to part with that amount of cash for a disc. I'll probably get the rest as they come out too.)
And unfortunately, with the way the series film rights are locked in the U.S. atm - I don't see this run being voice-dubbed or syndicated here anytime in the near future.
