well announcing extra omake episodes are all well in good, but if they really want to make an announcement, then they should announce that the DVD will be subtitled and at a more affordable price so the rest of the world would buy them, and import them all over the world

What is a reasonable price for a standard-def DVD of two episodes of a shonen series?

Two episodes on one disc? I don't think that's very economic.

It's very typical in Japan; manga is cheaper than in America, but anime is much, much more expensive. Which is part of why companies in Japan are terrified of reverse-importation, even with shipping fees it's still cheaper to order a Funimation boxset and just turn off the subtitles. So the next time you complain about prices (except on Kara no Kyoukai), remember it could be way worse. Anime hyper

What I want to know is, why is this even an announcement any more? It seems like every series includes an extra episode or an extra video or something to encourage fans to buy their desperately over-priced DVDs.
