I recently got the nozomi release with the very nice, very big art book. Might get ALs release, sell the nozomi blu ray but keep the art book.
Looks like we'll probably lose the 5+ hours of extras as well (1 Blu-ray, 3 DVD discs), since that was exclusive to the CE set in the US.
SD Bonus Extras From Original Japanese Release
Back when The Irresponsible Captain Tylor was originally released in a DVD Ultra Edition, there were hours upon hours of production blogs and promotional segments included as extras with the set. Upon reaching this tier, we'll ensure that all of that content is preserved and included with the Blu-ray Ultra Edition, so you're not missing out on a single thing!
Video Interview With Kenji Kawaii (Composer)
Kenji Kawai is famous for his music on works such as "Ghost in the Shell," "Maquia: When the Promised Flower Blooms," and "Fate/stay night." Prior to these titles, he also contributed music to The Irresponsible Captain Tylor. Upon reaching this tier, we will film and include an interview with Kenji Kawai to be included as a video extra! With luck, we may be able to discover some of the secrets behind this brilliant musical mind and learn a little about how he works his magic!
Video Interview With Hitoshi Yoshioka
Author Hitoshi Yoshioka hasn't done too many video interviews, but he's agreed to do one for us once we reach this level! We'll pick his brain and give you insight into the writings of the esteemed Tylor author, as well as a better understanding of how the Tylor project came to be!
Seriously, it took a bloody age for DBZ (partially dow n to the AB Groupe owning Dragon Ball up until 2007) and One Piece to come out on DVD! And even then there were the pauses because prior to Funi/Crunchyroll buyout, Jerome had trouble speaking to Toei to license the arcs after Skypeia! At least we didn't get the 4kids dub... though wouldn't mind the DiC dub for Sailor MoonYour forgot one very important aspect, when it comes down to Sailor Moon:
Toei still has it's main focus on television airings, not on DVDs, Blu-rays or streaming, making things very hard for some distributors.
Whilest in the US things with VIZ went somehow smooth, other distributors were struggling with Sailor Moon.
e.g. almost infinite delays in Australia and Germany, no Blu-rays in Spain, France or Italy, not even Sailor Moon Crystal released physically in some of these countries despite the huge popularity - way more popular than in the UK...
If you got Toei, you don't need enemies.
