Haha, they are actually still priced at $10. Anime hyper But I don't think so considering they kept going back and forth between "More Arriving Soon!" and "In Stock" since the sale first appeared. If they were trying to get rid of what they had in stock it wouldn't make sense to continuously order more sets to sell at $10 a box.

Not if it's Viz themselves getting rid of old stock, since I'm sure they have a warehouse for their things before shipping them out. And with the new sets coming into print, I doubt anyone is going to want to buy the other sets at the high price. Though...not sure why they didn't just reprice them like they're doing with everything else.

It probably will be a thin pack >_> Makes me sad because it'll probably actually match The Final Act. Oh well, I already bought already the thicker packs. I wish I didn't lose the insert for S2 :/ Fell out apparently... Bugs me...

Hmmm......I do like slimmer cases to help free up some shelf space. However, I am rather fond of my fat boxsets. Too bad it isn't a Blu-ray release as I would have definitely ordered it. I'll wait and see what the cover art looks like.

It still amazes me how back in the anime day of bricks, that those type of cases did not even exist. I'm staring at my MKR 2 economy box, where every little "door" only has 2 disks, and there are several doors. ... At least the thick Viz boxes look nice and presentable.

Cool. It's been a while since Viz has had a new release that I actually cared about.

What in the hell kind of prices are those? They look like Walmart prices where everything ends in 88 cents instead of 99 cents.

Also why is set 2 more expensive for the same exact of episodes as well as special features. I hate when companies do this just to make you spend more since you already have the 1st half. Really makes me not want to support a company or buy anything when they price gouge a product just for the sake of it.

Um, I'm not certain where you're seeing set 2. The two that WTK have linked above are for DVD and blu-ray versions of set 1.

The 1st set is now up @ Amazon as well: DVD and Blu-ray.

Amazon.com has added the cover arts. Both formats now note episode 1 to 13 (instead of 12).
