'Freedom: 6' - High-Def Digest Review
Kenneth's review of 'Freedom: 6' is up. He says the series has fallen apart. This HD DVD features another gorgeous video transfer and a powerful audio track, but the supplemental package is pretty weak. For fans only.
Full review here:
06-19-2008, 12:40 PM #2A DVD player will automatically access the DVD-5 layer of the disc, while an HD DVD player will access the HD-15 layer.
formatting sarcasms aside, I know anime tend to be on the step side usually anyways, but this?

40$ for 1 measly 1 disc with 30min on is a bit much. and this is 1 of 6 so make that 240
a big part of this i due to the pointless dual standard that one either do not need or do not want. (especially by now)
the only use with this soon will be that the DVD-part of it may (may) play in Bluray players..
and this in turn leads to:
no, take a look at the other 5 reviews. (and that in itself was a point too..) it feels like this thing and year old imports are last ditch thing is just cropping up to show HDDVD is not as dead as it is.

im just wondering, why is Bandai still releasing HD DVDs? Considering it was the first territory (Japan) to get destroyed by Blu-ray...whats the continues point?"PeAcE is but a shadow of death, desperate to forget its painful past"

Well my copy of Freedom 6 came in the mail today from dot-anime (the only place that sells it, I think). So six down, one to go.

The point is to complete the series for those who have been buying the earlier episodes and want to have the whole set in HD, I think. It would be kind of annoying for those customers who bought the early episodes at high prices and want a complete set if the series was cut off before completion. In Japanese culture I think that would not be considered to be very acceptable in terms of customer service.
I'm wondering why it bothers some people enough to be posting here about it although they are not obviously very interested in buying these...

and please do note my ill considered name before shouting basher, chosen a day or two before the death of .. I just think it is better to look to the future than hindering it in this "anything but !" that many seemingly under mindcontrol by Toshiba "naw, we never really saw disc as the way to go anyways.." has switched to even more now when the format is dead. there are really a frightful mass of them still trying to confuse the lesser informed without media "helping" with it.
even so, I still find it odd to review every episode of a series. if one likes the first one, one sees the next. (or not) what next, review all the discs in the Lost box separate?
EDIT: oh, and yes. the studio deserves very well some praise for completing it in spite of all. (I actually started feeling a bit ambivalent to the positive tint for the review for that alone now)

I just feel annoyed when some people complain about BV completing the series in HD DVD format, that's just a decent thing for them to do for all the people who bought the earlier episodes in this format. That's the point of view I was commenting from.
