Elfen Lied released on Blu Ray in Japan
- Elfen Lied is getting a Blu Ray release in Japan on December 19; it will include all 13 episodes, as well as the OVA. Plus there's going to be some "bonus manga" from the creator of the original manga, though its not clear what it will be like.
I was at an ADV panel in 2007 in which David Williams explained how difficult it was to dub or release the OVA even though they had the rights, because its a one-shot episode, and it would require more negotiations and expensive new contracts to bundle it with the other 13 episodes.
So hopefully this means the Blu Ray is a single bundled group of episodes, and any North American release will finally include the OVA.
It would really be appreciated if someone would tell NetFlix that Elfin
Lied has the chapters scrambled. This is very disconcerting when trying to
understand the story.
