What's the difference between regular and limited edition sets?
Other then the price that is….both have DVD and Bluray as choices....so what's on the Limited edition that's not on the regular edition?
Usually the only difference is the inclusion of an art box, and sometimes some sort of other extra like an art booklet. The content on the discs is the same.
Yeah, Its purely packaging, normally just a hard, cardboard like box that your case slips into. Sometimes there are extra goodies, but those change for each release so check out Rightstuf or another online dealer for the details.
It's actually usually better to just buy the limited edition set, even if all you get is a nicer box on the outside. Reason being, you pay $5 for standard shipping and if you spend over $50 you get free shipping. Well most new releases on BD are $48 somethin while the special edition of the same thing is $52 somethin. After shipping you end up spending like a dollar more for the standard edition, so you might as well buy the special edition lol. Example: Ben-to and The Devil is a Part Timer will both save you a buck by actually buying the limited edition, as of right now anyways. This is of course, only if you are buying through Funi.
They are right though, I've picked up a couple of special edition BDs and all it was was a nice outer box made of solid cardboard, thought it was kinda nice since it was for a two part piece of the series. Just gotta read the details and see if anything extra is included.
