Thank you so much. I was just wondering because my bf bought both season 2 & 3 of the series and season 2 had its slipcover but season 3 didn't for some reason.

Well slipcovers are in the original pressing and then reverted to without having a slipcover in the 2nd pressing, 3rd, and so forth pressings. So might have been a copy from a 2nd pressing or perhaps maybe some error from either Funimation or whatever seller the copy came from.

Like I know 1 time I ordered a game from Amazon that had some exclusive mini-poster that was only available through them. When my copy of the game arrived, it didn't come with it even though it was a 1st press copy. However, the video game company screwed up and forgot to supply those mini-posters to Amazon. So I emailed them about it, and got my mini-poster.

Plus I remember when Funimation screwed up on Afro Samurai: Ressurrection or how they didn't make enough Blu-ray copies of Summer Wars Blu-ray and there wasn't enough 1st press copies even before the release date which led to not enough slipcovers on the Blu-ray version.

Still like this anime quite a bit but have to say after the climactic showdown with Sensui it slows down a lot, everything after that is a bit of a let-down. I did enjoy their attempt at a wrap-up in the series finale.

Sorry for the necro of this thread.

After plowing through HxH late last year I decided to dive into Togashi's other work that I never saw when I initially got into anime.

Almost finished the first season and I'm really liking it so far. Dub is really good and the remastered transfer is gorgeous. It's like an ode to the days of hand drawn animation.

It's always great to see someone enjoying a classic series that many of us grew up watching. I need to rewatch this myself but my backlog is ridiculous.

I am FINALLY upgrading my DVDs of this to Blu-ray as this was and probably still is my favorite anime. Although I did notice one thing. Would it be best to assume the OVA collection is probably going to remain DVD only?

Probably but I am more concerned about the 2nd movie. I badly want the re-dub with either on Blu-ray or even just DVD. 1st Movie did with that OVA Collection but the 2nd movie is still in limbo with the 2nd Cardcaptor Sakura (Cardcaptors) movie.

It looks like the new steelbooks had the discs repressed (my set has ep1-10 on disc 1 while the new one has 1-8) and has an extra disc just for special features.


I might have to upgrade..


@ProfessorWho
You reviewed the old sets, will you be comparing the new ones to the old?

I’d love to compare them, but that requires me to buy the new Steelbooks. I’m not a Steelbook guy, so it’s really the discs I’m curious about- that said, it could simply be the old encode spread out differently, so unless I know for sure, then I'm holding off on getting it.

Nice, surprised Funi didn't reuse the discs. My copy will be here in the morning. I'll probably have to return it 3 to 4 times a to get a non-dented copy, knowing Amazon...

Wait there's no inside artwork? What the hell?

This is the thing on what I was asking Funimation about in my emails to them that I mentioned in another thread that they still havenít given me the response I needed.

The lack of inside art is a major turnoff, not gonna lie. These releases look like they'll be so nice... but no inside art, come on Funi. It doesn't look like the art cards will fit inside of the Steelbook either, which is annoying.

My copy shipped early from RightStuf (shipped on Friday with The Tatami Galaxy) and should be arriving tomorrow. The lack of inside art is definitely disappointing, it's very, very, very rare for FUNimation releases to not have them (it's been standard for them since like forever, something I've always liked about their releases), though a few things in the last few years strangely didn't have it like My-Hime (why, how?).

Since they're not cramming 9 or 10 episodes into each disc, it looks like the episodes might be encoded at a higher bitrate this time, but my problems with Funimation's previous BD release of this show had less to do with the picture quality than with the woefully incomplete credits (they list each episode's writer, storyboard artist, director and animation director, but none of the Japanese voice actors and key animators) and those stupid overlays on the episode title screens.

I'm surprised to say that my Steelbook arrived without any damage from what I can tell. I was ready to go through a few rounds of returns to get my hands on a near mint copy, but I think luck was on my side this time.

Funimation does it again, guys. The disc info is incorrect and these are the exact same discs as the old release. Disc 1 says episodes 1-8 but has 1-10 on it, uses the old Funimation "you should be watching" logo and includes the DBZ Kai Part Five advertisement from years ago. Same discs and each has the wrong episode listings. I haven't put in any of the other discs yet but will update later.

Disc 1 says 1-8 but is 1-10
Disc 2 says 9-14 but is 11-20
Disc 3 says 15-22 but is 21-28
Disc 4 is special features, 23-28 not listed at all.

Looking Back at a Legacy is 17 minutes in length

What is going on with Funimation? Can they not do anything right?
