I wish they would stop releasing non-hd shows on blu ray, and actually put some of the older HD shows on blu ray, like Buso Renkin, and Ah my goddess while I'm at it Funi, and Animeworks

Ghiblies at $1 off as a sale? I remember getting the DVDs for free via Pepsi back in the day.

After Bleach, I lack faith that they will finish this series out on Blu-ray.

Inuyasha The final act complete series is a thing so....technically it has been finished on bluray. Its just missing the middle chapters on bluray now that the first chapter is on bluray. I can see them finishing this cause the final act is on bluray.

They did finish Inuyasha. The sequel series was Inuyasha Final Act, which covered the rest of the manga.

Pretty sure they mean the original 177 or whatever episodes being released on Blu-ray, not the Final Act that was produced in HD.

At Barnes & Noble, if you use their 20% off everything coupon you can get Lucky Star on BD for 66 cents less than walmart.

It's a shame. Whenever they have a sale they jack up the prices to more than the prices on Amazon and Walmart.

Set 5 is nowhere in sight after 1+ years

Have they confirmed if they will ever be releasing the next set? It is really frustrating to start a series and put money into it and then having them stop releasing sets part way through. I am in the same boat with bleach. I have sets 1 - 4 on blu-ray.

I've been checking Viz's release calendar religiously and haven't seen it listed nor have I spotted any sort of announcement. I also have sets 1-4 and am super bummed that they just abruptly stopped like that.

Yeah, but what they mean is they lack faith in Viz to complete the re-release on Blu-Ray.

While it is a bad sign that Viz never finished releasing Bleach on Blu-Ray, I also never bothered acquiring any of the DVDs for Bleach past volume 3. And that wasn't a matter of cost, it was intentional. Bleach's story kind of dove off a cliff after volume 3, so I never felt the need to actually acquire the rest of it. I just like to pretend that the story went up to volume 3, and then just never finished.

 

I actually acquired and enjoyed the entirety of Inuyasha, so here's hoping that Viz actually complete the run in Blu-Ray.

Agree with you here, the whole soul society arc was actually interesting and then everyone and their moms gets bankai or some other OP crap.   Next to Naruto, I hate that this show had the most filler thrown in every few episodes.  Someone should do for Bleach what they did for DBZ and make a 'kai' version to strip it down.

You guys missed the final 3 Arrancar arcs (there were six total apparently) where the Shinigami fight the Arrancar and the Espada.  That was season 10, 12, and 14 apparently.  They were the main attractions, the culmination and the conclusion, of the entire Bleach series.

At least when Bleach did Filler, they did Filler Seasons rather than sprinkling it every couple episodes.

I watched the entire series and what I meant by them throwing in filler was actually more directed towards the arrancar arc, and the battle when the invasion finally happens.  It was annoying to watch everyone start getting into their respective fights, then filler season, back to main story and fights continue, great, but no conclusion to almost any fight.  Then another filler season and you finally get some results.  It was so off-putting because I can't even remember what happened during the earlier sequences of the fight because they were so far apart and kept getting broken up.  It actually fits in with the timeline you mentioned with the main story seasons broken up into every other one.

 

Don't even get me started about how convenient it was that they had their limiters released in the final hour and suddenly everyone was OP.  I have rewatched the entire soul society arc multiple times so that may be why I favor it more, and the espada arc just the once, so my memory of it is probably hazy at best.  Don't get me wrong, I still enjoyed it more than anything else, but that's because I binged through the rest of the series over the course of a couple weeks.

It would be nice if they did a "Kai" version of Bleach, as others have said, and then followup it up with the final manga arc that never got animated so that the series can end with better closure (the Fullbring arc made the show go out with a whimper).

oh yeah.  The Fullbring arc was just awful.

When did Funimation start giving digital copies with all of their releases? I was looking back at my New Game Season 2 bluray and the listing on amazon mentions including digital but not the box art, though the outer sleeve does have a sticker. Kinda bummed New Game season 1 didn't have a digital code.

The codes are only redeemable on Funi's website.

Evangelion Illustrations 2007-2017 pre-order for $22.34 (retail $35): https://www.amazon.c.../dp/1974707032/

Received this book today. Was so excited when I saw Amazon used a cardboard box, but of course as a book sent by Amazon, there had to be a problem. The box they used was exactly the size of the book, so damage to the outside of the box in transit caused a dent/tear to appear at the center top of every single page >_>

 

sample:

Spoiler

 

Amazon issued a replacement. I can only hope that they head my emphatic plea for better packaging so that the replacement avoids the same issue.

 

I'll wait until I have an undamaged copy before going through it thoroughly, but what I glanced so far looked interesting. Surprisingly, Viz put the slip cover on upside down. Easy to fix but a weird mistake to make.

 

-Update-

Replacement came. As expected, they packed it in the same box as before. *sigh* Luckily this time though, the box took no damage in transit, so the book arrived in good condition.

 

Buying physical books from Amazon is always a crapshoot >_<
