The question is yes, but the single DVDs are currently difficult to find due to the ADV fiasco happened early last year caused ADV’s licensed anime being difficult to find and also the current Economic Downturn we are in also put a strain on them as well. Luckily, FUNIanimation now holds the license of AIR TV and will release a full season box set on April 21, 2008 of this year (and it’s alot cheaper buying it instead of singles… even though I have the money to buy singles), meaning that I won’t be able to watch it until early/mid May due to alot of college work after the long reading week (aka spring break) and exams coming towards the end of the Spring semester. Once I receive them and start watching, I will start blogging on it as well.
Why are you interested in AIR all the sudden?
Well, after watching Kanon, Clannad, and currently Clannad ~After Story~, I gained interest in Key’s stories which are regarded as masterpieces… compared to other harem or visual novel adaptations I have seen so far. I also gained interest in some of Kyoto Animation’s work after watching Haruhi Season 1 (which is done very well) and Lucky Star. Also, I lost interest in most of today’s popular Shounen shows… because most of them are just not that great (yes, I’m looking at you, Naruto and Bleach).
After Clannad ~After Story~ ends, after three episodes… I’m going to have a period where I have nothing to watch except the episodes (until April comes!) I haven’t watched yet. Besides, I want to watch the dub version… because it’s alot easier to understand the story than just reading the subtitles that disappear after a few seconds before you even finish it.
Will you be watching the AIR movie then?
The answer is never… Toei Animation seems to botch up the story lines of every adaptation of Key’s Visual Novels so much that it’s not even funny… They should just stick to animating One Piece.
