Good thing I held off on buying anything Dragonball Z related. :lol: Let's go Price Match!

 

Funimation has FS @$50. Might just order from them. :lol:

Pretty high, I would think, since they tend to run Funimation sales quite frequently.

They matched the Walmart prices for Season 2 and 3, which is why they're so low right now for those seasons, so chances are not too bad.

Sigh, the Psycho-Pass Premium Edition Artbox replacement has a new issue. It appears to be a tad short in height. Making it difficult to put in and take out the blu-ray cases.
 

@Vash1306 :/ Please mention to @funimation. I doubt they will do another run, unfortunately. :( ^TR

They shouldn't be too short. If you take out the business card holder then it should all fit.

Since FUNimation doesn't charge tax, I just went ahead and pre-ordered Seasons 4 and 5. Picked up Lost Girl Season 1 to get free shipping.

Well I guess am lucky since my original box of Pyscho Pass isn't really lopsided.The replacement box might as well just throw out since it's just ridiculous to get the cases out.

Damn, I'll have to watch and see if Amazon will match Funi since I can't find anything that I don't own/want to own to get me over the $50 mark for free shipping.

 

Cmon Amazon!

It's a lazy remaster apparently. I could see Funi doing another remaster of it in the next years.

The biggest issue people have is that they are widescreen, which is mainly because non-diehards chose widescreen over fullscreen.

I also don't see a re-release happening unless Toei actually allows FUNi to release Blu-ray versions of the Dragon Boxes, which is highly doubtful.

It has both the broadcast TV music and the Japanese music for the dub, though I don't know if the vocal songs will be on the English dub.

They really fudged up with this release. I have no regrets on getting the cheaper standard editions now. I never knew it was that hard to make a box.

This is the type of stuff that happens when you outsource to Mexico like they do. Hell the box is no different from the other "limited" editions they had.

The majority of their other LEs (and even standard editions) were also made in Mexico, and there weren't any huge issues with those, so I'm still sticking with the fact it's just a crappy design flaw on their part for this particular LE. 

 

Can't bail them out on this one just because it was "Made in Mexico". ;D

Just so you know, Adult swim is not cartoon network.  They have been two separate networks since 2004, or so.

Funny. I always hear it announced as "Cartoon Network's Adult Swim".

 

Well, Adult Swim aired Evangelion and Deadman Wonderland with minimal edits.

All those curse words get by on Black Lagoon, yet Deadman Wonderland was full of beeps. I remember a Yu Yu Hakusho commercial where they bleeped "ass".

 

 

Everyone submit this price to Amazon and hope they price match!

If all the season sets were out for those Blu Rays, I would be all over this. Besides wanting the series on Blu Ray, I'm getting them for the extra features with the voice actors. Special features on DBZ discs are rare.

Not trying to since they screwed up on getting the proper measurements for the replacement boxes which baffles me that they could mess on something as simple as that.

It was done mainly for ratings/advertisers purposes, but they are technically separate networks. Watch the bumps and promos carefully and everything is "[adult swim]" by itself with no mention of its parent channel. Even the DVDs and Blu-rays only have CN at the bottom with the copyright info.

My Robotics;Notes from Walmart came in. First thing I noticed? No blue bar on the slipcover.

It's most likely just for Robotics;Notes, but it definitely looks nifty when I saw mine without the bar on top.

Yeah, I'm at work until 1 AM (thankfully that shift ends after Saturday) but I saw they must of gotten quicker shipping on my Robotic;Notes order as my copy is hitting sometime today. It didn't feel like it but apparently I ordered it at the end of January and as with everyone else, my copy was shipped yesterday.

To those that have ordered from the Funimation shop. How is there packaging like? For a single blu-ray item, do they stuff it in a bubble envelope? Or use those cardboard fold outs like Rightstuf?

 

Also do they ship their product early like Rightstuf does?

I'm curious about this as well, and if they are reliable as this would be my first time ordering from them.
