With Amazon, unless it's release week, I pretty much assume it won't come with a slip, or if it does, Inu ears for days.

I talked to a Funimation employee directly and they said to just email product concerns and tell them you are requesting a slip. I bought Hyouka 1 from RS and my replacement slip comes in tomorrow from UPS.

I remember Summer Wars of the original release. Bought it the week it came out at Best Buy but had no slipcover or artcards included.

Best Buy has a problem of tossing slips I have seen the Hosoda version of Summer Wars with no slip and it just looks silly lol. I had to replace a few other BD's I got from them too that were missing slips.

I never really had that problem with Best Buy on release week ever and Summer Wars actually did not have enough copies with slipcovers made. It's kind of a collector's item of sorts to have the slipcover with artcards with the original release because of how rare it is.

Barnes & Noble is really the only company I can say that I have my suspicions on about throwing away slipcovers even while charging full MSRP.

See, now if they made all US anime like the UK releases with digipaks inside a narrow, side-load chipboard slipbox, they could never screw us over with not providing a slip to go with it. You can't sell a bare digipak without it being in a slipbox...

I've been to B&N and can confirm they do this (at least in my nearest store) as I've seen them do it. It was the release week of Shin Godzilla & they were tossing those slips along with others in the trash before putting the movies on the shelf.

I'm not a fan of digipaks, I'll take regular BD cases any day.

And I import almost all my anime from Japan and the UK specifically for the digipaks, just to avoid those ugly, flimsy, eco Blu-ray keepcases and horrid o-card slips. I hate them both with a passion.

Non BD eco cases forever. Digicraps no thanks. They are just as bad as eco cases. It's all fun and games till you bend a corner and are sol.

So do the cases not come in the slips out of the box or do they come separate? I just can't understand why they would take a slip off to throw it in the trash, where I can see how a lazy employee wouldn't want to insert a case into a slip before putting it on the shelf.

I have the original Summer Wars BD with slip, but mine didn't come with the artcards (ordered through an online retailer).

Not true. My original copy when first released has art cards. It was limited to first pressings.

I can also confirm that my original Summer Wars has artcards as well. Yeah the slip and the artcards were hard to get a hold of.

I remember that. Not enough slipcovers and art cards to meet demand. I remember Funimation sent me the DVD slip the first time and then they finally sent me the Blu-ray slip after that lol.

I almost feel like they actually sent out artcards to those that missed it.
