    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.

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

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

    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.

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

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

    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)

    With how slow Viz releases things good luck waiting 10 years for it. If they ever decide to do it in the first place.

    Yeah, but also, it's 2017 now.

    I myself am holding out for bigger collections. The cost is a secondary factor for me; I'd much rather have good-looking, space-saving collections on my shelf than a whole ton of single cases.

    I'm sure the fact that they're only selling a few eps per set for such a long series probably doesn't help either. They should have taken the Funi fairy tail approach and put more eps into collections. I want to buy the series but I'm not going to spend 30-50$ on 13 eps for a 148 eps show. I don't have the money nor the shelf space for that. The way they're going it's going to be 11-13 sets and a est. 400-500$ (all rough estimates based on current structure) which is insane.
    Except FUNimation first puts out 13 or so episodes per Fairy Tail and also say One Piece set (to bring up another example), then later does collections. Fairy Tail Part 1 was $55 MSRP for 12 episodes, and each set still is that much in terms of MSRP, and contains about 13 or so episodes per set, like the recently released Fairy Tail Part 22. One Piece which I brought up earlier for a while was going for $50 MSRP per Voyage set, it's now $40 MSRP, but still.

    Longer shows are going to cost more and take up more space, that's how things work. Two cour shows when they're first released cost about double what a one cour show costs, yet I don't see the complaining there. Why should these long-running series cost about as much as far shorter series? Also, the entire show isn't out yet, and the releases are spaced by how many months? The show doesn't currently cost a couple hundred to get because only a small amount of it is out.

    Just be glad it's not 3-4 episodes for $30 or so in terms of MSRP. This is how say DBZ, Case Closed, Bleach, and Naruto Shippuden were first being released. They didn't start out with cour sets, they started out with singles. In the case of Bleach and Naruto Shippuden, the singles later got dropped, Case Closed as well.
