Free Gunbuster Trailer Manga Card ← Sorry,it's over m(__)m

DRRRRR (drum roll)…… We are making a terrific announcement, so don’t flip out due to over-excitement, OK? For a limited time only, we will give away Trailer Manga Card drawn by renowned illustrator & manga artist Haruhiko Mikimoto (also famous for character designer for Macross) to EVERYBODY who purchases a Gunbuster DVD!! All you need to do is as easy as picking a bean with hands of Machine Weapon.

Step 1: Buy the DVD
Step 2: Watch all six episodes
Step 3: Fill out the survey postcard enclosed in the DVD
Step 4: Mail the postcard (don’t forget to put a stamp on it)
Step 5: Keep practicing Lightning Kick until Gunbuster delivers the Trailer Manga Card to you

The Trailer Manga Card is highly collectible. Do you know why? Because it’s never been available anywhere in the world…or even in the galaxy! It was drawn back in 1988, even before Gunbuster was released in Japan! Don’t worry. We won’t keep you wait for 12,000 years to send you the card.

Though, keep it in mind that this offer is first-come-first-served. This jaw-dropping campaign ends March 30th, 2007 as long as supplies last, so hurry, HURRY!!

FYI, online DVD stores such as Amazon, Rightstuf, Best Buy etc. have started taking advance orders to fuel your Gunbuster passion!

Exclusive! Authentic!! And collectible!!! Gunbuster straight from 2004 release!

Heck, it seems Gunbuster made it through Rip van Winkle effect! (@_@) But why did it end up arriving in the US now? (Was it supposed to land on Feb. 20?!) Hrm, it decided to land now because it wanted to announce that a very special re-issue of the Japanese Gunbuster Remastered Edition box set is now on sale for the die-hard US fans!

This remastered edition was originally sold in Japan for one year only in 2004 and is currently no longer available anywhere in the world…except for the US!

Now, here comes the important part. Everything but region code is exactly the same as the one sold in Japan. Even the booklet is all in Japanese.

Where to get it? At Kinokuniya! Limited quantities though, the Kinokuniya Book stores in the U.S. (and also through Kinokuniya online ordering) are selling the edition!

If you are Gunbuster collector, this is another one you should add to your collection! (^_-)-☆

*Please note that the product is the exact re-issue of the Japanese product and that there are no English subtitles or other translations.
