  • Re: Viz Media licenses Hunter x Hunter (2011)

    Yeah, I don't see Hunter x Hunter getting larger sets (or if it does it will be a long wait). I think the show will do well sales-wise but probably not well enough that Viz will re-release it like they did with Naruto and Bleach as those two just have a larger audience. I think the price point for the episodes is fine. I mean, good grief, imagine if this were being released by Aniplex, *shudder*. (I mean, I do buy Aniplex's series that I want, but I would draw the line at a long-running series, though I guess I did make an exception with the Monogatari series)

      Has anybody tried to read the Vol 2 hunter license with a bardcode scanner? Should be interesting...

          ^ That's what I expected. Personally, I don't care for steel books, but I'm sure some will be sad.

              It figures that the steelbooks wouldn't last seeing that there are only a small handful of people out there that know of its existence. I don't really care for steelbooks, especially for long series.

                Still knee deep in recording for the Greed Island arc. All the new characters I've heard so far sound super good. �� #HunterxHunter

                  No word on Set 3 yet but we thank HxH fans so much for their excitement!

                  Should we be worried or is it too soon still?

                  • ^ Well--it's airing on TV, right? How far along is it on TV? If more than enough episodes have aired, then maybe another set will be coming soon. If not, then it's more of the waiting game. We're not going to get another set if not enough episodes have aired. The downside with it airing on TV is it'll take longer to be released on DVD and Blu.

                      Episode 50 just aired last weekend, so it is almost far enough to solicit the fourth set.

                        Too early to worry. I may worry if Set 3 don't happen this year. I think it's also possible they may be looking into bigger sets (more episodes).

                        • Ugh this is so dumb. I'm sure I'm worried for nothing (Viz hasn't not finished a series in a while), but they really could benefit by speeding this up even just a little bit. We're going to hit the one year mark and not even have Set 4 at this rate.

                          • I do not know what's going on in Viz's anime department as the usual release order for the Blu-ray/DVD Box sets of their licensed shows is every 3-4 months. But I have been noticing this situation with several of their licensed shows lately, I mean Sailor Moon S Part 2 set is being released 7 months after it's first set which is insane as their previous sets were released just 3 months like Naruto.

                            I have a hunch it could be that they don't want the Box Sets of their licensed series (e.g. Naruto, Sailor Moon) to interfere with each other in sales on the same month they come out. What do you guys think?

                            • to those who have decided to wait for larger sets: best of luck, at the rate these smaller sets are coming out .. you folks holding out for larger sets probably won't get the last ep set until ... 15 years from now? 20 years?

                                The Bleach Blu-ray sets have come to a halt now as well (or so it seems). I don't understand the eternity they are taking with all of these sets. Set 3 for Hunter x Hunter could have easily been out a month ago.
