Why isn't there a Steins;Gate DVD release( Separate from Blu-Ray)?
I've wondered for a while now- why isn't there a DVD release of Steins;Gate? I don't have a Blu-Ray, so I don't want a DVD/Blu-Ray combo pack. I haven't been able to find one on Amazon or Funimation. Can someone please tell me why? Correct me if I'm mistaken. Thanks.
Because the price difference between a Combo-Pack and a DvD-only release is a measly $5 MSRP. Even if you don't own a BD player(and I don't know why you would even pay money for anime in SD), you're essentially just getting a full-series of BDs for nothing.
What Renzokuken said is spot on. Chances are sooner or later you will upgrade to blu-ray and with these combo packs you will already be ready with the better quality discs.
I love these combo packs. I am always happy to see them. For me it is the opposite… I don't really like buying DVD's anymore. There are several anime I would love to own that right now only come in DVD form..... but I have the type of luck where if I were to buy them I would read online that a Combo pack is being released a week later. (That just my type of luck)
I agree with the above posts just look at releases from Sentai. Most of their anime is single format and cost the same as FUNimation's combo standard releases. It's a great deal
I'm still angry at Funi for not releasing their shows on VHS anymore! :p. And where's my BetaMax copy of Black Lagoon!?
Still waiting for Psycho-Pass on a Floppy. I'd really appreciate it if they'd add a collector's edition that included a cassette tape with the show's music so I can listen to it as I do my daily powerwalk
VHS and Floppy disc; ha! I want a copy of Stein's; Gate, Puella Magi Madoka Magica and Queen's Blade on Laser disc.
VHS? Betamax? Floppies? Pssssh… child's play.
You haven't lived until you've watched Redline on Super-8. B)
The filmstrip adaptation of AstroBoy kind of looks like the real thing.
…and the flipbook from that School Rumble episode is how it all began!
Release a 4k version on Sony's 185TB cassette tape:
