In other words, Toei wants to milk Manga like they've managed to milk FUNimation.
Any sane person would understand that every DBZ fan hates these orange brick sets. They are known as the worst version to be released.
In an ideal world, they would have been better going with DBZ Kai or even the Dragon Box sets if released at the correct price.
We shall see how the UK reacts to these releases.
If it's bad, Manga can't go blaming the UK anime fans, but instead need to look at themselves and ask was it worth the risk and did they do their research?

It still puzzles me to hell and back why they keep ignoring DragonBall which was way way better than Z in every aspect.

As I understand it, the "Orange Boxes" still sold like hotcakes for FUNimation (I think I even saw a "like printing money" quote from a FUNi rep). Working with Toei is hard (I imaging especially so if you don't have an existing relationship) and it has taken Manga a long time to get to this point.
