Yes, I suppose there's always been a premium on anime tapes over here. Considering how short most are, the cost per 25 minutes for the average Manga vid was probably not that far off £6 or £7. I suppose thinking about it it may only be 5 discs but they'll be getting a lot on each disc. Even so, you're still looking at half the running time of a season boxed set of a series like Farscape which would only set you back about £70. Not forgetting customs duty and general postage from Japan to come on top of the base price... Anyway, I'm sure those who want it will get it, but I think it's been worth highlighting the apparent lack of the English soundtrack. Also, is the NTSC standard of the DVD an issue? It's still Region 2, but having just looked at a random DVD, ours do seem to say PAL on the back. Anyone know if that's an issue?
