Default 'Freedom 2' - High-Def Digest review

Kenneth's review of the anime title 'Freedom 2' is up. Like its predecessor, he says this one is strong on all fronts except its list price. Although the US roll-out for the series matches the Japanese release pattern, at $39.99 per 26-minute episode, this one's likely to be relegated to the rental counter.

Number one i have no idea who would blow their money on one episode. Number two this should look perfect they should have use almost all the disk for this one episode, their is no reason as to why this souldn't be perfect.
I love anime but i have no watch freedom, cause this is a ripoff.

You know as shitty as getting one episode per disc is - I would buy these discs if not for the experimental web download screwiness. The web download content is full-promotional trailers and prequels and stuff that is VERY valuable - THAT STUFF SHOULD JUST BE ON THE DISC and playable in high-def as an extra from the get-go.

To have to fumble around with an ethernet line to download all that to a jerky harddrive just screams to me that this whole thing is an experiment that isn't worth getting at all due to the frustration or at the very least will definitely end up being one of the first double-dips.

Either way, it's no sale for me and I hate to say it as an anime/HD fan. Bought the expensive Royal Space Force without blinking but the piece-meal/expiremental/lacking valuable hard-coded extras nature of this disc leaves me exasperated.

I really really REALLY want Royal Space Force, but BB and CC doesn't carry it.

I was tempted to get Freedom 1/2, but now after learning its only one episode.. wtf is that? I mean seriously? Whos gonna pay 30+ for ONE 25 MINUTE EPISODE! I dont care if its the best damn looking movie out there, Im not paying 25 bucks for 25 minutes of pleasure.

At least, not again.

I already own Freedom 1 and The Wings of Honneamise on HD DVD. Will definitely be picking up Freedom 2.

You guys who want this but don't want to pay full MSRP should check out ebay.... They're going between $5-10 on there.

Yes it's expensive, but I've been importing anime for years (where a good DVD release can run well over $100) so this is pocket money level.
