      Amazing art. I loved the art for the Japanese volumes, and glad to see we get all of them as art cards A hefty soundtrack is nice to see too!

          It looks nice, but of course it is going to be trashed because of the price point.

            Eh, I really don't think that will matter here; with Funi doing a normally priced standard edition, lots of people will just wait for that (it's what I'll be doing).

              Wow. Let's see how many copies Aniplex USA sells.

                I'll be getting the limited edition because I suspect that the regular edition will have bare-bones extras like the clean opening and closing and that's it. I love Japanese audio commentaries, (but I know most people don't) and music CDs are nice to get all in one package. I'll be curious what Funi's covers look like. Key visuals, maybe?

                  Very nice-looking set there. I would have to think that Nezuko would appear on the other side of the box.

                    A fairly straightforward LE, but for this series that means absolutely gorgeous across the board. Is there any indication of chipboard vs. flimsy case? I know they've been going back to the latter for some recent releases after a good run with the former, at least for what I've been getting, but this looked a little more loaded, so maybe it'll get the full treatment? I'd like to hope so.

                        I'm getting Aniplex's release because I know Funimation will screw up the video or audio somehow. Overall a very nice looking release and I look forward to having it next month.

                          Wow that looks nice. Glad to see they even got the OST to boot. With Funi doing the standard editions for this, there's absolutely no excuse for these LE's to not have a rigid/chipboard artbox.
