No replay value. It's interesting to watch purely for the twist on modern/real life, but I felt this one was lacking overall. Just go watch it on YouTube as other people pointed out and save your money.


Completely disagree with this. It's absolutely worth purchasing and rewatching.

Ditto. I thought it was one of the more refreshing anime series in recent years.

I don't get you guys at all. Then again, I don't watch much anime anymore so I suppose if you're watching tons of mindless cartoons all the time then it does stand out.

Umm I like good plots, well developed characters, and the occasional beautiful animation. What's so confusing about that?

If you like Evangelion, of course they are. Phenomenal picture and sound quality.

I would never rewatch Soul Eater in a million years. The animation is slick and the character designs are cool, but that's all the show has going for it. If you have Netflix, watch it there instead.

Haha, I suppose you're right. I'm a sucker for good deals though. I did pick up some some other things though:

Evangelion 2.22
Summer Wars
FLCL
Mushishi
Samurai Champloo

Love Hina would gain nothing from a Blu-ray transfer, as it was not produced in HD.

True, but other shows not produced in HD have gotten upscales, which usually look at least a little bit better. I'm kind of doubtful of them giving Love Hina that treatment, though.

It's entertaining, but I dint know about watching it twice. It's extremely rare for me to watch something more than once nowadays though.

Meh not really. The Samurai Champloo blus looked horrid in my opinion. The only real advantage I see in getting Anime Blu ray upscales is for the DTS Master HD or the Dolby True HD soundtracks.

I don't have the time to re-watch an anime, but for what it's worth, Eden of the East is definitely an interesting piece of work. I don't get why you'd buy it when it's on YouTube for free.

It continues with two movies, none of which I've seen yet. The first one is available on Netflix.

It doesn't matter, just buy them! lol I'm nearing the end of the series, and I'm consistently amazed at just how good it is. It really makes all the other anime that I used to consider great seem a lot less special.

Check out my youtube channel! I do video game collection updates, unboxings, final impressions, and intelligent game industry commentary.  Expect lots of collector's editions, as well as steelbooks from all over the world! :D

I can't stress how much everyone needs to buy Case Closed. I have spoken to an insider at Funimation recently and he has been given a certain number the series needs to reach for Funi to continue dubbing the movies/series. Its truely an awesome show! And a great value! Only $13 for 800 minutes worth of content in each set!

also if you are interested in helping to save case closed the insider has made a facebook page and youtube channel-

Case Closed does sound like a good deal. Does the show's uncertain future mean that a Blu-Ray release is unlikely?

highly unlikely... at least for the season sets since the it was 480p digitally. However if Funimation does decide to release some more movies they will likely be putting them on Blu-Ray. Either way its an awesome show and definately a great value for the money! Especially for $13 each and each set contain more than 25 episodes

There probably won't be any Blu-ray versions of the tv series by Funimation. Funimation has gone on record stating that they're not planning anything else with the tv series, as the season sets have sold horribly. They just did the same thing with the When They Cry & Familiar of Zero season sets. So just consider what is released the only tv series stuff they'll release.

The movies, on the other hand, have a chance. Since those have sold decently. Plus it's less work for Funimation to transfer them to Blu-ray, as the Blu-rays of most of them have already been released in japan.

I'm an Evangelion fan, so I'm blind buying 1.11, and 2.22.

Also blind buying Eden of the East while it's on sale.

What's this Case Closed Anime people keep mentioning.... Something worth a blind buy? Thinking of doing the Berserk Collection for $32 while I'm at it since everyone I know says it's awesome and epic and worth every cent. I was waiting for a Blu-ray honestly.

Case Closed is also known as Detective Conan. It's mostly light-hearted. I myself like it, and have had the 5 box sets released, and two of the movies.
