I'm glad that this is at a lower price point of $49.98. The original OVA set cost $119.98 and was released Jan 28, 2003

Hopefully they'll rerelease the TV season boxsets with lower prices as well.

Exactly what I was going to say.

I've been wanting to check out the Ranma 1/1 anime for a while now (especially the OVAs), but most of the box sets are hard to find (especially for less than $100.)

I can foresee the TV series coming out cheaper someday soon...

Wow, I didn't expect this considering that the OAV set's already been out for 2 years. And only $50!? Nice, I like it. Though I'm curious as to why they doing it, not that I'm complaining.

*ponder* I swear that it came out earlier than that. IIRC, the OAV box set was released BEFORE any of the season boxsets.

Looking on animeondvd's info, it came out in 2000.

Yep. We only list the original release date and not re-issue dates, which is what the 2003 release was. If they make changes to the release beyond price or new cover artwork, we add it in as a new listing. Otherwise the listings would be swamped with all the CPM price-downs and Geneon's Signature Series re-releases were just the same as the originals but with a new logo on it.

Ahh.. I didn't realize there was a reissue. I just remember wanting the set and wondering why the seasons weren't in boxsets.

Yeah, they're out NOW. (And I own most of them) But they weren't out in 2000 when the OAV set came out, which is what I was talking about.
