    Order Hunter X Hunter set 1 and receive an exclusive life-size Hunter License replica while supplies last, no Hunter Exam required! These Hunter license replicas are based on the ones in the series, are made from thick, durable plastic and are roughly the size of a standard credit card. Be sure to snag yours while they last!
    That's really cool (though having it made of metal instead of plastic would have been even better). Wasn't planning on getting the one cour releases (was holding out for eventual two cour/whatevever the do re-releases), but with such a neat GWP, I'm debating on whether just to get it for the bonus. Decisions, decisions.

    I'm holding out hope we get larger (24/26) episode sets down the line. Hopefully they won't make us wait till they finish the initial releases of the 13 episode sets (which could very well take 3-4 years if they are waiting on the broadcasts) before doing it.

    Actually, it's Viz. I'm not surprised.
    Well, it was important for Viz to get this show out ASAP seeing it has been five years since the show began airing, and this is one of the marquee titles out there. So it's more about timing seeing that they can only release as much as Toonami has aired this show.

    Plus they need to make their money back as they likely had to pay quite a bit for the license (especially since NTV funded almost the entire anime (VAP and Madhouse which are on the committee are owned by NTV), even more so after Shueisha left the committee (when the show moved to being late-night)), and then there's the dubbing costs.

    Do you really think they have any choice in the matter? This took a whole year after the series ended for it to even be announced as licensed. I doubt any other company would have been able to do more per set.

    See, you say that, but Funi is doing the exact same thing with Fairy Tail, and that's almost twice as long.
    And FUNimation has been doing it with One Piece for nearly an entire decade, and that show is 700+ episodes long now (and will probably hit 1,000+ before it ends) and while they're years away from releasing those on DVD, they'll continue to release new episodes in voyage sets. There's like what, 30+ voyage sets at this point?

    I would have liked the sets to have closer to 20 episodes per set, given it's length, but it's not to be.

    Since this show is long, I'll probably wait for larger sets down the road. My backlog's so dang massive so I can wait a while.

    Native HD? I feel like this is kind of an odd question for such a recent series. The old HxH series maybe, but the new one? It was made in HD. It's streaming and airing on TV in HD. There's no reason to think it might be an upscale or something.

    Kind of disappointed about the lack of effort put into this release by Viz. This show definitely deserves the same amount of amazingness they're doing for Sailor Moon. Really wanted to see a LE with a chipboard artbox, but oh well. Also 13 episodes sets is kind of a bummer too considering the immense size of this show, would have been nice to have it in fewer sets.
    I was definitely hoping for the same treatment as Sailor Moon, which is why I was happy to see Viz license it in the first place, since no other company does that kind of thing for such long series, so I share in your disappointment there. I didn't think for a second we'd be getting anything but one-cour sets for its initial release, though. Almost no new series is released in larger chunks to start out with.
