    As long as they finish releasing this, I'll be happy no matter how slow it might end up being.

    Though seeing it come at the low price is a plus, at this rate we'll never see the end of the show finish releasing let alone nice two (or more) cour sets.

    Damn, that's just 8 months since the second set came out back in February, and almost 10 months since the Heavens Arena arc aired on Toonami.

    I just hope they resume with the standard 3 month solicitation with their future releases. Yes, I understand they have a lot of anime titles on their plate and I don't blame the company's anime department but waiting 7-8 months for another set is just insane!!!! I'm sorry if I'm going way to far with this post but they are clearly just shooting themselves in the foot, I don't want them to pull a "Monster" on their future anime title sets.

    On the one hand I'm happy it's coming at all, and at the same low price point to boot. On the other hand, DANG another 4 months still. Coulda had set 4 out in October by the gap between the first 2 sets.

    THANK. GOODNESS. Is this a longer wait time than the 6 months we used to have to do in between the first Naruto uncut sets?

    Now I want Bleach Set 3 BD too.

    You're forgetting about Crystal and the R movie which aside from the former's simulcast, weren't exactly priorities during the first 2 seasons' releases.

    ^ My guess is they're doing too many shows at once and have a small group of people working on everything so something has to give. (I don't like it either. I'd like to get all of Sailor Moon in this decade. )

    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?
    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.

    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?

    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.

    Should we be worried or is it too soon still?
    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).

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