Yeh size of the stream would be nice to know, 170mb? 220mb? 300+, while 300+ would be a huge ass hit for streaming imagen the quality lol.

Also are the madman servers properly prepared for the day 1 rape? as iv seen many company's servers fall over the first day they open a new service like this.

I dont think it will be dubed lol, and iirc it was said it will be a sub.

What format will it be? flv? wmv?

"Caused"? In both the manga and previous anime, their mother died way before they tried human transmutation...

I think that is a mistake, because their mother is definitely dead before their transmutation in the new series just like the manga.

Exactly. Sly's press release (do forums count as "the press"?) seems to say that it was the Human Transmutation that killed her, obviously they wouldn't need to resurrect her if she were already alive.

I would say that it was a copy/paste from another source/writer who didn't quite get their facts straight

That or it's a translation from a Japanese synopsis and the translator didn't do a particularly good job at proof-reading.
