Why couldn't they have just kept on letting Funimation (and others) dub their stuff and release it here?
That an easy question to answer:Money pure and simple.
Look at it this way, By releasing it themselves and at a significantly higher price point (At least compared to the Blu-Ray Prices) They bank all the profits.
-To compare Blu-Ray releases Funimation and Sentai will sell 12-13 episode series at around $70 SRP, with Discounts that suppliers get they mark it down to about $42 which works out to about $3.50 an episode for a 12 episode series.
-Aniplex is releasing a 4 sets for the series charging $113 for 6-7 episodes, with supplier discounts it gets marked down to $90, which averages out to around $15.00 and episode. Now do you see why they are doing it? It's more profit for them.
I'm still trying to decide whether the Blu-Rays are worth it. I may just get the DVD's and save $160 bucks. I'll let you all know when they go up for pre-order on Tuesday Read More...
