So I was looking through Madman's Blu-Ray releases, and came upon the Chobits Collection on Blu-Ray (located here). Out of curiosity, due to its lack of information and apparent release date, I bought it.

What's up with this release? I know, for a fact, that FUNimation has yet to release Chobits on Blu-Ray (they're doing so in February, I believe), and I'm not sure any European companies have Chobits released on Blu-Ray. I say this, because I read that Madman only usually authors their own Blu-Ray releases if it's a major title (Ponyo, Nausicaa, and so on), usually just changing the Blu-Ray region in any other case (the same menus and extras as in the foreign release by FUNimation, Manga Entertainment UK, Bandai Entertainment, etc).

Is this release merely an upscale of the DVD release? What's the cover art look like? It really seems like a misplaced preorder, really it does. The 2-3 week processing time makes me wonder if it is.

Chobits was animated in SD so it will be an upscale. Funimation's release has been delayed until April, although I suspect it will affect Madman's I can't be sure about that.

Had a sqiz at the BD. $60?!?! The DVD set is $80. I wonder if the good price is due to a high Aussie dollar when the BD rights were paid for.

Another upscale. *le sigh*

That's just the way I roll, it's more exciting like that, haha. I've already seen Chobits anyway.

Oh well, I was gunning for a HD master to have been used when Chobits was created. I'm not too concerned though, for the price an upscaled Blu-Ray is far better than having my BR/DVD player upscale the DVDs.

Madman states it as having 2-3 weeks processing time. Hope it's true, I ordered two other things at the same time (and the order has yet to be split).

The release date on the product's page is pegged at 10/05/2010. I'm guessing whoever entered it into the database forgot to put "2011" and that's why it hasn't come up as a preorder title. But as I say, just a guess.

It's definitely a possibility.

I contacted Madman's customer support email over a week ago about it, but I haven't got a response. Not even a peep.

@OniV2: Give them a little more time... its just past the holiday season and they've probably got quite a backlog to work their way through.

EDIT: Damn you Speed! Laughing

Really? Should be posted on the Madblogs, or something (unless I missed it), because all the businesses all come back into business at different times these days.

Too bad I don't pay much attention to Twitter these days.

This is supposed to be a May 2011 release, not 2010. It was a mistake, so many apologies for this.

I guess I'll contact sales and ask to switch out Chobits for something of equal value (because, honestly, at this rate it'll never ship. I won't even live at my current location in May!).
