    Question for those more familiar with Mill Creek releases, what do they use for 6-disc DVD sets?

    They moved on from the infamous "discs in envelopes" cases to using Flexboxes (or regular-sized STACKpaks, see NISA's Cardcaptor Sakura DVD sets) in 2013 but I see the cover of this set and Ultraman 80 and it's a bit larger than those so is it a STACKpak case or two Flexboxes together in a cardboard box?

      They could be using those cardboard sleeves.

        I checked a few sets on Ebay and saw they re-released some of Roseanne in a double-season set with two Flexbox cases in a cardboard box so here's hoping they do the same here rather than with the cardboard sleeves.

          I found a 6-disc DVD release (Nov '20) from Mill Creek and a clear keepcase was used.

                Product Size: 7.5" x 5.25" ax 0.625"
                ^ If the dimension is correct, it should be DVD keepcase and likely with O-card.

                  Confirmed to be in a 6-disc brick case with trays (same for 80).

                  Minor complaint is they didn't use regular-sized cases but this somewhat matches with the regular edition Blu-ray sets so it's fine I guess.

                    Incomprehensible machine translation

                    For some reason Millcreek this year seems to be dropping all the chances they have to do good things for the community, as if they just stopped caring.
                    This series' translation is sourced from TokuHD's original work for the show, and it is a complete incomprehensible machine translation just like last Month's Gridman set. While the video transfer for the series is as you would expect and the set designers clearly know what they were talking about, unless you personally know japanese you will not understand a single thing that was said in the show. AS we've said before about translations done without any care, do not buy sets like this. It only perpetuates that they can put these out without any care for a quick buck.

                    Uses subpar, at times unreadable subtitles.

                    I’ve purchased the majority of Mill Creek’s Ultra releases. They’ve been good to fantastic. I want to purchase more. But it’s been confirmed this release uses very low quality sub scripts that read like they were machine-translated, very very similar to what was used on Toku HD. I want this series. But not like this.

                    Complete collection, bad subtitle presentation

                    It’s awesome to have a physical copy of this show but unlike other tokusatsu/anime shows the subtitle quality leaves much to be desired for, primarily in its presentation in which Mill Creek decided to have the subtitles all aligned to the left of the screen in an odd white font versus the standard centered titles in a bold yellow, this sounds like a little thing but it is not and is especially jarring for fans who are use to a quality presentation in a specific standard way.

                      Yeah, it's the same situation as Gridman.

                      Basically for Ultraman, if a show's premiere in the states was on Toku HD, be very wary on if it gets a video release afterwards because those translations will carry over to those discs just like when Tsuburaya was streaming Gridman on their Ultraman YouTube channel a while back, it was the same sub translation there (1-3 from a fansub, 4-39 from a machine translation).
