Even if, by some miracle, the US released a set...no chance it looks as good as this set.

Why is that? It will probably be the same, hopefully with lossless audio though...

And yes, way too many pictures of Legacy on that box set. Awful... it shouldn't even be in there.

Outside of juggernaught rating shows and first seasons, TV on BD in the US just doesnít happen that much. Even more so for not currently airing shows like this one.
Then if a set is released, odds are not much creativity goes into the design.
If it happens, great...but Iím not holding my breath.

This is stupidly expensive and I’d probably have no place to put it. I’d love this set if it came out on the US, but that seems unlikely. Much as I’d love to support physical media, I’ll made due with it streaming on Hulu and eventually Vudu if I buy that.

Seasons 7, 8, LAD and Legacy can be purchased elsewhere. All but Legacy have US releases. The only option for Seasons 1-6 and Redemption on Blu-ray are these Japan releases.

The most inexpensive path is to purchase Seasons 1-6 and Redemption separately rather than purchasing the box set. The real trick is to find a seller that offers US shipping for Season 1, but for a comparable price to that of Seasons 2-6.

So taking Season 1 off the table for now let's look at Seasons 2-6 and Redemption. Purchasing them all in one order will run you around $200 shipped. Purchasing Seasons 2-6 in one order and placing a second order for Redemption will actually save you $25 or so. The breakdown is shown below.

Order Summary (Season 2-6)
Items: USD 132.45
Shipping & Handling: USD 22.26
Order Total: USD 154.71
Before shipping: $26.49 per season
After shipping: $30.94 per season

Order Summary (Redemption)
Items: USD 12.93
Shipping & Handling: USD 9.01
Order Total: USD 21.94

Grand Total: USD 176.65

To each his own, but for Seasons 2-6 I don't find $26.49 per season, $30.94 per season shipped expensive at all, especially considering the fact these releases are not available elsewhere also factoring in the extra cost normally involved when importing versus purchasing a US based release.

As I said though, the real trick is with Season 1. When these releases first became available there were several sellers that offered US shipping for Season 1 and for a price equal to or less than what Seasons 2-6 have been selling for. Not sure why that didn't continue to be the case.

I am still offering my older Seasons 1-6 (+Redemption) with US shipping.

(All but Season 1 are still sealed!) If someone is interested in a discount over the Amazon.co.jp price, send me a PM.

Ordered my set from Japan. The picture quality was absolutely worth the upgrade, especially since Iím just getting a friend into the series for the first time. I was a bit underwhelmed by the covers so I made English-friendly custom replacements:

I wonder if the massive sale price on iTunes means that maybe BluRays are coming? The iTunes price tracker here only shows the last month or so, so I don’t know if it has ever been this low before, but the only reason to pass this up is if there are BluRays coming out soon. Or if you don’t like the idea of 192 hours of 24 filling your hard drive, which is a practical concern.

I don't purchase digital downloads. I purchase Blu-ray's. That's all the reason I need to pass up some iTunes sale. To each his own naturally.

Sure, but if you have to choose between watching your low-res DVDs or watching in HD...

Awesome covers. Just please swap seasons 4 and 5, that's driving me crazy just looking at it in the pictures.

I've given up hope on Blu-rays coming to the United States. We've been hearing about it for 12 or 13 years now.

FYI. Season 1 is finally eligible for U.S. shipping at the same price as the other seasons. Seasons 1-6 and Redemption can be had at the moment for $200.43 out the door. That's around $25 a season before shipping and handling. Not bad if you ask me.

Just watching season five. PQ is amazing on my 4K65 inch TV.
Last time i watched the series 24 was from 43 inch 4:3 rear projection and from DVD.
I could not be happier about my decision to import these.

Anyone understand the 10% off offer that Amazon Japan currently has on these and how it works?

Best I can tell you only get the 10% off when purchasing the expensive Bluetooth headset the offer links to in conjunction with DVD's and Blu-ray's, so it's no deal at all. Right now Seasons 1-6 and Redemption can be had for just under $200 shipped. That's around $30 a season shipped which isn't bad at all considering these aren't available on Blu-ray elsewhere. I used to pay $80 a season on average back in the day as this TV show was being released on DVD. That being said, the juice is either worth the squeeze or it's not. For me it certainly was. I really enjoyed revisiting this series from start to finish on Blu-ray and plan to do so again later this year.
