    Only one more release left! Can't believe this we'll actually see the whole thing released after all these years. Still crossing my fingers beyond all hope that Viz gives us some kind of LE release for the final set with a artbox to hold the whole series (impossible I know).

    The long wait between release has sucked, which I guess is partly due to Toonami though I can't complain too much since I'm kind of behind on collecting the reent sets.

    There's also another issue since the DVDs were missing the second opening and second & third endings because of music rights crap and just like it did back then with HxH, Nana & especially Monster with it's rearranged score, that will affect sales just like any potential upscale issues will. We're kinda seeing it now with the response to InuYasha's BDs since it has yet to be confirmed if they will include the Johnny's-related songs like on the DVDs.
    Before Hunter x Hunter (2011) aired, the original series and the OVAs publisher was Nippon Animation. Sometime after Hunter x Hunter 2011 aired, any notation of Hunter x Hunter (among many other non-related properties) was removed on its Nippon Animation English site (toward late 2012). I think Nippon Animation is no longer the publisher. It wouldn't surprise me if the license isn't available for international licensing (maybe because of the existence of the newer series; publisher is NTV).

    It's ridiculous how long we have to wait for each set, but at least there's only one more after this one. I wish we got any kind of special releases at all (other than that one SteelBook), but at least once I have the complete series on Blu-ray with the dub, I'll be content. If they ever want to re-release it in a more extravagant form, I'll be more than happy to double-dip.

    I'm one of the few who likes Blue Water and can admit they did a terrible job with the original show's dub so I understand wanting a new dub with the much better Bang Zoom 2011 cast but with that said...

    To think we might actually see this whole thing released. I will never understand Viz's glacial release schedule.

    It's about time it comes out. Just one more volume left to go.

    All signs point to 1 more set (episodes 124 - 148).

    What I wouldn't give for Viz to do an LE for the final set containing an artbox with room to house all the previous releases (one can only dream).

    Given how they've been releasing the set since Set 3, I expect it won't be until August/September for the next Set and March/April 2020 for the final one, so 7-8 months for a new HxH set.
