Amish, and anybody else who own the Japan editions of season 7 & 8. Is the picture quality of season 7 & 8 better on the Japan editions than the USA editions ?

The audio appears to be DTS-HD Master on both USA and Japan. Asking as I already own season 7 & 8 USA editions, and if I can save a few $$$ by not double dipping, then I will not get 7 & 8 Japan editions. Thanks in advance.

NEVER MIND....I JUST ORDERED 1-6 and REDEMPTION. Thanks Amish Paradise for your posting

YES. The box set is not on sale. Currently the box set (blu-ray) is 52,473 Yen which is $484.63 US dollars. I just ordered, thanks to Amish Paradise, seasons 1-6 and Redemption for a grand total of $131.64 including shipping to San Diego, CA.

Currently seasons 1 & 6 are back ordered and will be restocked and shipped as soon as they arrive at Amazon Japan. But order 1-6 and Redemption now and it will still be $131.64 including shipping for everything.

This works out to $14.90 each for season 1-6 and $13.06 for Redemption, not including shipping.

The Japan releases of S7, S8, Live Another Day and Legacy are the same as the releases in the US and elsewhere. As such, I wouldn't recommend purchasing the Japan releases of those. The US releases of S7, S8, LAD and the UK release of Legacy will be easier to navigate as well, i.e. the Blu-ray menus will be in English.

That being said, I did purchase the Japan complete series boxset, but at the time it was on sale and Season 1 could only be had at twice the price or more as the other seasons per the sellers who offered US shipping. The boxset is really nice, but if I were purchasing today for the first time I'd definitely purchase Seasons 1-6 and Redemption only. No question.

PissedOffPeoN....I don't know if you already have seasons 7 & 8 and Live Another Day. Currently on Amazon (USA) season 7 (blu-ray) is $14.99 and season 8 is $14.74. Live Another Day is $13.64.

If you don't have 7 & 8, Live Another Day, I'd get them from Amazon here in the USA.

I took a few screenshots of the Blu-ray menu for Season 1 Disc 1 for anyone interested. They're very easy to navigate.

Play All:


Episode Selection:


Audio/Subtitles:


Pop-Up Menu:


A few notes...
1. English audio and Japanese subtitles are selected by default. If you turn the subtitles off they'll remain off for that disc going forward.
2. Playback will begin where you left off once the disc loads. (This may not be the case after the first few seasons.)
3. Any text prominently displayed during the episodes such as when calling out the location of a scene, English is used as was seen with the US broadcasts. If Japanese subtitles are enabled the translation will be shown vertically in the upper right corner.

savagepenguin, did you post your artwork for 24 ? I looked in the custom thread and did not see it ? Perhaps it was posted somewhere else ? Thanks in advance.

That custom set by savagepenguin is fantastic. I don't print cover art, but do use cover art in the digital realm. Using the original cover art at present per the below.






Might just have to change things up if savagepenguin makes their customs available for download. I'd even be willing to host the files if that was helpful. Have plenty of storage space available on my FTP.

It's feeling that way isn't it. I'd purchase a US based release of the full series in a heartbeat. Would love to see lossless audio for Seasons 1-6 and Redemption, both cuts of Redemption and an improved job with Season 1 in particular. That being said, these Japan releases are still the pride and joy of my Blu-ray collection.

I agree with AmishParadise. But for $131.64 shipped, you really can't beat that price. At least that was the price including shipping a few days ago when I ordered seasons 1-6 and Redemption. IF it was available here in the USA, it would probably be $200.00 or so. And for someone like me who really can't afford to pay big $$$ for this, the Japan deal at this time is very, very good IMHO.

On a side note, savagepenguin, who made the custom English covers on page 28 of this thread has not posted them in the custom cover thread here at Blu-ray.com. I also sent him a private message and have yet to here back from him. Also, he has not been on Blu-ray.com since 3-22-19.

This weekend when I'll have time, I try and search various custom cover threads and see if he posted them elsewhere. If I find any, I'll post a link in this thread.

Hopefully they're enjoying real life outside the Internet. Not everyone hangs out here on a regular basis. And besides, time away from Blu-ray.com can really help one resist the urge to constantly be purchasing Blu-ray's. I wouldn't know much about that, but I have a friend that stopped coming here so much just for that reason. :-P

AmishParadise. Just a quick question. In your picture for audio/subtitles, is the one highlighted to turn OFF the subtitles ? I'm assuming that it is as you mentioned that audio is English by default and subtitles are Japanese by default. Thanks in advance again

If memory serves right, the third button down on the right column is to turn subtitles off

Yes, the defaults I mentioned are what's showing in the screenshot. It's easy to determine from there what's what. :-P
