So last year, they released Garo Makai Senki on Blu-ray over 8 volumes for about 5000 yen each. It came in a black box that held a little pamplet and black Blu-ray cases. Cool.
March this year, they're rereleasing it. Let's see, the Amazon price is 27,730 yen. Disc 9 contains the "My Name is Garo" special, disc 10 has cut scenes, and disc 11 is the soundtrack CD.
Are you serious? I'm glad this stuff is coming out, but why didn't they hold off on releasing the initial Blu-ray run if they had more stuff to put out there?
I mean, I understand that these guys need to make money to keep making more shows that we enjoy, but it's pretty hard to not see this in an unfair light. It seems to punish the fans who bought the original Blu-rays, since they paid more and got less. If you look at the Amazon link, there's quite a few fans that are also upset by this.
To put it in a more charitable light, maybe they just decided that they wanted to release more bonus footage, so that's why they're doing this box set now. But the Japanese fans find the quick release schedule really suspicious. It really smacks of double dipping.
Another fan is upset because he/she wanted the soundtrack, but that was never released on its own. You can only buy it with this boxset. This is actually a common practice for the Japanese. Oreimo and Daimajin Kanon also only released their soundtracks with their Blu-rays. However, I believe Oreimo later rereleased the songs on a separate CD.
