Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood looks like it'll have 6 volumes in the set at $25 a pop (basically $150 total)... hurts my wallet.


Five volumes for Brotherhood, not six.

I think the soonest you'd see that would be at least a year after the final set comes out. The current sets are selling well enough where it'd be foolish to release it any sooner.

Watched the first episode of Claymore on Netflix, and really liked it. Would rather have it on Blu so I picked it up, thanks OP!

Why can they not have a simplified Dragon Ball Z....can someone explain to me the diff of these boxes? I have the orange box 1 and 2 and that is it....(sorry for off topic)...If I was to purchase something it would be claymore, tsubasa...watched the first ep of Eden of East and found it enjoyable...


Orange Boxes: These were remastered and readily available. However part of the remastering they did was make the show widescreen. DBZ wasn't made widescreen so they actually cust off the top and botton of the entire run. It's watchable, but sometimes noticable.

Dragon Box: Also recently remastered, but not butchered. This is the set to get, but it's a little pricey.

Kai: This version is kind of a director's cut of the entire show. It has all new audio with most of the same cast. Several episodes are either compeltely removed or comined to remove the filler episodes and the 10 minute powering up scenes. For example in the initial run Vegita and Nappa arrived to Earth in episode 15, in Kai it's 8. I'm loving Kai.

Other the others mentioned, I've only seen Claymore. The ending is kinda meh, but overall great show.

You're the first person I've seen who thinks that. Not that I'm trying to invalidate your opinion by saying that. I'm just curious about why you think that. For me, Kai actually makes DBZ more watchable.

The changes just really cut into the nostalgia factor for me, I prefer to watch the originals. I never minded the 15 episodes of powering up or anything else that they changed anyways.

Plus the voice acting was better on the originals.

Nostalgia for me was hating them powering up so long, and not getting to the damn fighting lol.

I still cursed at my TV for it... Ahhh good ole DBZ. That's why I'm finishing up my O.G Orange set. I'm still tempted to buy Kai at this price. I don't know yet.

First, how can you claim prior non-existance to devalue a movement? I am sure the civil rights movement would love that. "Well, there was no movement to free the slaves before, so why is it relavent now?"

Nostalgia is one thing, liking DBZ filler (you do realize it was so that the filler was to let the manga proceed ahead of the anime, right?) just means you never grew up.

Seriously? Not all of the filler is bad and some of my favorite DBZ episodes are filler.

Problem is the filler was wasn't some episodes here and there, it was woven into each and every last episode to stretch out and pretty much destroy the pacing of the show. If you ever read the manga and then watched the corresponding episodes it just really becomes amazing how many times they can take say a page and a half's worth of material at times and stretch it out to 3-5 episodes.

There's two things worth noting about Kai, just in case anyone doesn't know:

The series just ended in Japan at episode 97- the end of the Cell arc. I know some people don't like the Buu stuff, but keep in mind that you can't get a completely Kai-ified version of the series.

Also, if you like the soundtrack, you should go ahead and pick these up. Future releases (in both Japan and the US) have been delayed so that Kenji Yamamoto's score (which is comprised of a lot of copyright-infringing pieces, which Toei has been made aware of) can be replaced with the original soundtrack from Dragon Ball Z. If I had to guess, they probably aren't allowed to print anymore copies with Yamamoto's score.
