AIR Blu-ray Disc Boxset

July 21, 2006 | Author: | In: Anime

Release date of a Blu-ray version of the anime AIR TV has been released. Available in November but at a huge price tag of 29, 800 yen (approx. $340 AU). It includes all 14 episodes, a bonus disc which includes cast interviews and even a 3 minute version of the opening theme. Now the only problem I see with this is the lack of a Blu-ray player. Supposedly the Sony Playstation 3 is released on the 11th of November and they are possible trying to co-release it. Well I see it being a good idea but chances of PS3 coming out to Australia on release date AND getting one is pretty slim. Also I have no plans on buying a PS3 anytime soon.

I am with you :(
I too do not plan on getting a PS3 release day. It probably will cost me more than my arm and leg. I’ll end up waiting like maybe 1 year or so. So the chances of me getting a Blu-Ray player as well is slim.

*sigh* I wonder if this DVD version of AIR is going to be worth it. Higher quality? higher resolution? Will the start re-releasing Blu-Ray versions of all the previous anime? that would REALLY suck as far as my collections goes.
but dang. …..29,800yen (approx $270US, 110 exchange rate) thats still quite a bit…

well it would be worth it for the extras I suppose, but the Blu-ray version is also using surround sound as opposed to the dvd version. but this kind of release is mainly aiming at the hardcore fans.
