$59.99 or $87.07?

Yeeeeaaaaah, I don't think the banners are worth the extra $27.08. I'll probably cancel and go with Right Stuf. I need to think about it.


I was only getting the CE for the artbox. The banners look nice, but they're not a deal breaker for me, and I'd rather save myself 30 or so dollars and not have the banners.

I already cancelled my CE order. Funi actually emailed me back like 30 minutes after I requested cancellation. I'm sure they're getting cancellations left and right today.

Anyways, 60 bucks for this on TRSI is a pretty solid deal. I'm beyond happy that I'll be getting an artbox. However, my experience pre-ordering part 2 has been pretty hectic. I originally ordered the regular LE on TRSI right when it was announced. Then, a few days ago, I heard the CE was going to have an artbox. So, I cancelled my order with TRSI and ordered the CE. Now, Funi comes out and says there's an artbox version now. I then cancel my Funi order, and place an order yet again with TRSI. Ughh, Funi you're killing me, but I'm still glad about this new release, though.

I'll probably be picking up seasons 1 and 2 of Baka and Test, now that it's cheap. Attack on Titan I can wait for a complete collection of.

And High School DxD season two was licensed for an early 2015 release, but the cover art shown is of last year's first season release. So I really don't know what's going on here.

If there are that many discrepancies, the question is does Funimation know what is going on here.

that is because they are re-releasing the first season as a 'standard edition' without the art box. The Japanese season 2 BD are still pretty new, don't expect season 2 in america anytime soon.

also fairy tail arc released this month is nowhere near the current arc on those art boxes.

this is either a teaser or an error, those video will not be coming out this month, I am quite sure.

Umm...what? The one I bought last year is a standard edition blu ray/dvd combo with a regular slip cover and a single-sized blu ray case. Looks exactly like the one pictured in the ad.

yes, that is exactly the same but at a lower price
funimation tends to release a Limited edition with box and regular edition (which is what you have)

then later they will release the same thing at a cheaper price or sometimes call it a classic edition
the cheaper version is usually a paper slip over a bluray case
this month the classic versions are Freezing and Steins Gate
DAnime hyper is sure to come once the stock of the regular edition is depleted as the price has been dropping steadily for awhile
this is also a franchise they will milk like sekirei

but feel free to come to your own conclusion, this is just my educated guess as I dont work for funimation or anything

however, D X D season 2 in japan, bluray vol. 6 came out in March 2014, that is 4 months ago. I'm sure you know about reverse importation and japan does not even have an entire series collection released yet.

Just so people know, the Attack on Titan LE w/ box is already in the Closeout section on Right Stuf, and as of this moment there are 241 copies.

To find out how many copies are left. To find out on the number of copies left, go to the product page, and input an outrageous quantity to order (i.e. 500). It'll tell you the maximum available left to purchase.

Well, in the minutes it took me to type that out, it went down to 239. I'm putting my order in now, and I'll make a decision on whether to cancel Funi's Collector's Edition or this edition tomorrow.

So I basically paid $40 more for 3 wall banners that I'll never display and a cell phone strap I'll never use? Is the art box the exact same design too? And does it hold the LE Digibook editions or just the standard editions? The art box is the only reason I ordered the exclusive Funi edition. At the time, the LE w/ the art box wasn't available on TRSI for some reason. Seriously considering canceling my order with Funi now...
