    I wonder if the LE version will not look out of place next to the first artbox. I'm actually looking forward to this.

      $39.98? For a new season, first release, two cours? That can't possibly be right!

            I think the episode count is wrong. I believe Darker than Black's second season only has twelve episodes, which makes the price fit a little better.

              That's RACS's regular price. They don't list MSRP. I would imagine that the MSRP would be around $64.98 or higher for the LE. The episode count is wrong. It should be 27 to 38 (not counting the OVA).

                Yeah, don't like that policy either...

                I'll plan on picking up the second season, even if the OVA was way better than the TV episodes.

                  Yeah, it doesn't make much sense to me. Here is their reasoning behind it (that's if you haven't seen it): link.

                        Since I've never bought anything from RACS, yes, that was the first time I've read that. And what a lot of bollocks it is indeed! Refusing to provide MSRP is a noble, Objectivist dedication to transparent pricing! If by "transparent" you mean "opaque", I suppose. I don't care how educated a consumer I am, obscuring the producer's pricing signal in favor of your own leaves me more ignorant than I would be talking to a competitor.

                        And he wonders why TRSI regularly kicks his pointy head concave in the market, despite alleged better customer service...

                          If that's the case, he should tell us exactly how much he's paying the distributor per unit. As Mitch H. said, Rob's still obscuring facts.

                              I personally don't think it's coming from FUNimation. Or for the very least, the chance is greatly decreased. I would think soliciting Season 1 along side with Season 2 would be the approach if at all. The best hope may now side on Aniplex of America.
