LE DVDs were around 60-80 depending on the exchange rate (pamphlet, OST CD, postcards)

Std DVDs were around 40-60 depending again on exchange rate.

Compare for yourself. The quality is pretty good.

A few slight errors here and there, but that's to be expected. Very easy to read font. Probably Tahoma with a black outline (Not like FUNi's god awful pure white >.<)

The two books feel like (and probably are) velvet! Soft, fluid to the touch with slight fingerprints and tracks from touching it. Artbook is absolutely gorgeous! And helps me prove that it is a gyp that the regular edition art for the DVD's looks better than the Limited Edition!! The translation booklet is fun to read with the interview with Nasu, Takeuchi, and Sakamoto. Some very interesting info behind Type-Moon and the production of the movies. ^^ Nasu is especially interesting. He gave an apology for Movie 3's story and noticing that it paled in comparison to the novel. You can easily see as people have stated before that Nasu is the creativity and Takeuchi is the brains of the group ;)

I am keeping it in the box it came in (a cardboard box with plastic handle with Kara no kyoukai on it) just because... letting something as precious (and expensive!) as that set lay out for dust to cover and should something fall on it would be a sin! Definately worth every single penny.

It was alot of fun plowing through all seven movies again and the epilogue. Kudos to Maaya Sakamoto for basically doing a 30 min monologue O.o That's basically what the epilogue is with some interjections from Mikiya (Kennichi Suzumura) who definately looks a little cooler now with his scar.

Whew...

If you want the box replaced, you can.

I want to get it too. I thought there was no way that it would be sold out and thus I could take my time to save up, lol. Guess I was wrong....

zalas Not sure if I have that issue, and even if I do, I think it would be hard for me to remedy it, since I bought it at the showing instead of through RightStuf.

X-Calibar Just got it. :3

Best looking boxset I now own... High quality materials: even the book and blu-ray cover is made out of some material that won't leave fingerprints (not velvet... ummm what is it called...).
I accidently brushed the plastic sticky cover wrapping against the artwork on the front of the box (oh crap!), but even though it was well stuck to the artwork; I pulled it off and .... not even the slightest damage. (whew!)

As for the video quality... I only previewed Thanatos (the oldest); and it looked good to me. Obviously better than DVD quality (judging from scenes with great detail and sharpness).
When I paused it and approached the TV I could see the poor filtered quality of the characters and non-background content...

But, since I don't notice it on the 53" HDTV while playing (I was however using the 120Hz feature; TV smooths out motion, but shouldn't affect low-motion scenes) I'm perfectly happy with the purchase :D And assuming it only gets better quality in the later episodes then I have no complaints at this time.

Oh, well there is one thing :/ Apparently my amplifier isn't up to blu-ray audio specs :/ So I can't listen to it in 5.1 properly... yet...

zalas Looks like TRSI is sold out of the boxset now... Glad I picked up a copy at the showing (they brought 10 copies with them to the theater, along with 7 movie guidebooks, one for each movie)

At the screening, the upsampling filter looked very obvious in the animated characters, although I got used to it by the end of the first movie. They had a producer from Aniplex and a producer from ufotable there, who had interesting things they talked about. For example, the scene where the police are searching through the grass in episode 7 took months to finish.

JRaiKetchum *sits impatiently staring at an order status screen that refreshes every minute in the center of a circle comprised of various Kara no kyoukai figurines, nendoroids, novels, magazines, games, etc. with nothing but Kalafina and Rakkyo OST music blaring in the background*

I'm a scientist! Nothing is ever perfect! Who cares about little nitpicky issues like that! The promised day that Aniplex USA has waited for has come! Rakkyo is about to be unleashed to the NA audience! The day us fans of the series have been waiting for since the first time "Fukan Fuukei" graced the Japanese big screen! And best of all... THE TRANSLATIONS OF THE ARTBOOK! XD

*Status still says Processing*

*starts bouncing up and down like a spoiled brat*

C'MON RIGHTSTUF! PROCESS FASTER!!!!!111 >< >< ><
-Rai

P.S - j/k I'm actually only laying @ the computer, listening to my Yuki Kajiura folder refreshing every hour ^^;. But still, I don't care about really bad nitpicking of video unless it is some glaring problem like some greening I've seen in some upconverts.

Ja, ne

cool post thanks for the info

Point being, the Rakkyo blu-rays look terrible and ufotable is basically ripping off anyone who bought them.
