Thatís a suspiciously good deal. Is it SDBR or some half-bit rate bullshit for gainjin?

I guess that third Patlabor movie isnít going away, ehh?

Historically US versions of Patlabor start out at $$$ and make it all the way down to ĘĘĘ before they disappear. Nobody seems to value it here, which is f*cked because taken as a whole Patlabor is better than %75 of Gundam and all of Macross but nobody seems to care. It also didnít get shitty until WXIII which is a very long time to maintain a consistently high level of quality.

I paid half as much for this box set as I did for one Patlabor movie on VHS. Iím not bitter.

The timing of this is pretty good, btw. I was watching a VHS copy of Patlabor Music Clips just the other night. It reminded me how great the animation is in that show and how most of it I havenít seen in the last 20 years. I guess I know how to watch it next time.

Lol. My guess is they figure they already made their money at the current individual release price points. I think you are joking but afaik only Discotek does SD blus.

That may be true about SDBRs but some cheap Western releases are made with much lower bit rates. I know some 999 stuff is like that and the newer Gundam OVAs as well. Iím not expert on it though.

It wouldn't surprise me if some US BDs were worse on purpose due to reverse importing.

Yeah. Thatís exactly why. There are shows with hard subs for the same reason, I think that may have been 999 also.

Sometimes they just wait too. It was 9 years before the US got Rosario Vampire on BD. The funny thing is that's just a stupid boob anime where nothing happens.

Anyway, I would assume they will be the same exact BDs from the individual releases. Either way that should be quickly confirmed. Actually I'll contact MJ about it.

I'm watching The Rising of the Shield Hero now and have been enjoying it.  I watched the first couple episodes and then binged the manga pretty hardcore so at least I know I'll enjoy what's coming up.

I enjoyed Amagi Brilliant Park for what it was. Pleasantly surprising was the lack of lewds given it's more or less a self-insert show.

Watching Magical Sempai, it's a guilty pleasure.

This past week I've been slowly re-watching the six Moldiver episodes on Laserdisc. It's fun and silly and has some fan service. :)
