4,879 did sound pretty high until I checked and noticed the MSRP was only ¥15000 (no tax). It's obviously not bad
either but a lot of BD boxes charge twice that for a cour.
But FLCL is only 6 episodes?
But compared to the previous JP releases of the series it was cheaper. Also taking in to account the cost of what the average 2 episode JP release anime blu-ray goes for these days I thought it was a bargain.
Original DVD release
: Vol.1 2,700 Yen, Vol.2-6 3,700 Yen each
total: 21,200 Yen + Factor in shipping costs for each volume as they were released
: 19,000 Yen
: 15,000 Yen
Just intended to do a spot check because muhootsaver keeps bitching about it but ended up watching the entire series. Maybe it's because I'm now viewing it on a 52" Samsung LCD instead of my old 34" Sony Wega but I seemed to be more aware of some graphical nuances that I missed in previous experiences. Sure the picture gets soft at times but overall it met my expectations for an upscale and I'm happy enough with it.
I actually liked the packaging because it's very similar to the 1st pressings of the original R2 DVD release which I still own. Sure it would have been great if there was a nice booklet instead of the foldout but I don't have any regrets purchasing the set.
