Bluray Combo Pack Announce!
I am an individual that like to have it all, but doesn't like to sacrifice space in order to have that everything.
I buy the DVD. -- So that I can watch on my computer's DVD drive.
I buy the Blu Ray. --For Higher quality HD for my someday HD Player.
I buy the Soundtrack --For the Music (Major customer at CDJapan)
I finally get sold on these Combo Packs.
I have been going crazy replacing all my DVDs with the Blu-ray counterpart and slipping the DVD in with the Blu-Ray conserving space.
It's actually a space saver since Bluray cases are slightly smaller.
But then you have anime Combo packs which are really convenient, especially lately since there have been very nice boxes that hold the DVD/Bluray cases in, and fit nicely on a shelf.
But then I read about a title that I've been waiting for an English release, and FUNimation announces a DVD release. End.
I've been anticipating this series for... well let's see.... 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012... 5 years... and the best release is a DVD release OR later release of Bluray ONLY?? If I wait long enough will there be a Combo Pack?
Also, I've noticed that depending on the series some Combo Packs will use the nice Blu-ray cases while others will use the oxy DVD cases... (Trying to not remember the VHS days...) It just looks a little weird on a shelf having different sizes.
It it's a matter of a series doing well or not, its' a bit difficult for someone like me who's asking if I should buy expecting that this is it, or wait because there MIGHT be a future release...
Just an example: Sharingli-La DVD-- is there a BD Combo Pack expected? or should I just get the DVD set?
I noticed that Panty and Stocking is scheduled for a BD release, but it clearly states BD not BD+DVD. Are they both being listed? or is it just the one or the other?
Hidan no Aria is being released as a BD combo pack... So is Shakugan no Shana II. But Toaru Majutsu no Index is just a DVD?
Either way, it's better to have a Dubbed DVD than a Subbed Only DVD
