They work very, very slowly with merging their sets together, unlike Funi who seem to do it rather fast after releasing the individuals, almost on purpose just to screw me over for buying early! :x
Yes, Funimation is very crafty with their releases. They'll release a series in multiple parts, make as much money as they can off of the die-hard fans, and then as soon as the sales dip they'll release a full season set at a lower price, to get the sales from the less enthusiastic fans who were a bit more price-tag shy. And a year or two after that, they'll re-release the series in a bargain-themed SAVE set for next to nothing, and get the sales from the much more casual fans. (and extreme bargain hunters) Funimation knows how to milk their catalogue for every cent it's worth.
Sentai is much less likely to re-release their series. I wouldn't necessarily wait for a full series set.
