Dragonmaster: Insert cheap joke about how the video transfer is the only good thing about Nostradamus here.  :P

Mid-2016 release date set and cover revealed: https://www.facebook.com/147168055312297/photos/a.196378827057886.55668.147168055312297/1241497179212707/?type=3&theater

Cover seems to be the same as the Japanese one, which I don't mind at all.

I've been debating whether or not to get the First Haul set or wait for Discotek to get to them. On one hand, I'd like to save shelf space on the specials (I assure you, all those movies and video games do take up a lot), but on the other hand, it might be better to wait.

I definitely recommend waiting. I got the Funimation sets last year right before Discotek announced the Voyage to Danger re-release and wanted to kick myself for a long time. One of the specials was cut and had no Japanese audio track, and the visual side leaves a lot to be desired. It's guaranteed that Discotek's version will be much better, and here's hoping that they'll re-release all the other ones Funimation dubbed as well.

If you don't own them already, the Discotek editions of these films will probably have better A/V quality.

Barring some unpredictable scenario, there will be significantly better A/V quality on any classic TV Specials we issue, especially anything previously released in the US. The new masters are much better than what Funimation got to work with back in 2002~2007/8(?).

Apparently, it's actually a DVD/BD combo. I hope we get that with Walther, too.  8) Thanks to Vintage Anime Fans for the link.

^No complaints about it being dvd and bd, but as I always buy dvd, do these combo packs come in a case the same size as a dvd or bd case? Might seem silly but it would bother me if it was smaller when lined up with my other Lupin DVDs.  :P

Form my experience with BD/DVD releases, most, if not all of them arrive in cases the same size as BDs on their own. Dunno if that'll be the case (no pun intended) here, but I would imagine so.

Of course, normal BD cases are a bit smaller and thinner than DVD cases by default. I know what it's like to be a bit bewildered by the differences when putting the cases on the shelf, especially when putting them in order and jumping between BD and DVD. It might be odd, but if you're like me with my collection, you're gonna have to learn to deal with it...as I'm gonna.

I hope they reissue the previous releases on BD.

It'll be in Blu-ray-style packaging, as per the posted cover art. Sorry to the DVD-format-only-shelf-unity folks!

That's okay, Reed. Sadly, SolHerald may not be so happy, but I guess it's something we'll all learn to get used to. :P

On my end? Eh, wasn't really that concerned. If anything, I'm glad to know if I ever decide I wanna get rid of the DVD copies in the DVD/Blu/Ray combos, I already know who to give the DVD copies to. So that's a plus.

I'm overjoyed to see this getting a DVD/BD combo pack - it should look amazing in HD, and the special is already one of the better-looking ones anyway.
