    Only problem with the German Cowboy Bebop set which is sold exclusively on Akibapass Shop is that they only ship inside Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Luxembourg.

    It'll be available in other countries like Netherlands and Portugal because of the subs included and the fact it's a shared boxset with other countries. Just wait it pops up on Amazon france (with possibly more content?)

    Dybex will make an announcement in the coming days. It will be released simultaneously with the German release.

    Whoever designed that box needs to look for a new job, why is the main art reduced? Looks like something from the early 90's

    Cowboy Bebop encode has a pulldown flag which pretty much confirms the use of the Dynit encode.

    @Lambadelta Wish ours had the artbook though I suppose we should be happy we are getting any kind of CE

    Wish we could get the character stat sheets that show how their levels, and job points were spent.

    Yeah it's an odd choice but it doesn't look that bad. It could have been much worse with some odd background color choice. I think it looks OK there. Could have been done because the received assets aren't good enough.

    Lol, the french Overlord set is 75€ cheaper and has the same content. All KSM boxsets are completly overpriced when compared to actual content and to other german distributors. No wonder why everyone hates them.

    I'd rather pay ~€38 instead of the €113 and not have the art book. KSM also does this ugly foil look for all their art cases...

    I agree the our set is well priced but i just love a nice art book. KSM releases seem super expensive for what they are.

    And lol, the artbook in the french set has about 2x more pages than the german version

    the advantage of the German set is its prob better PQ with 3 BDs over 2

    Depends whether they used BD25s or BD50s

    Do hope an UK distributor picks this up, maybe Anime Ltd. ?

    I just realised I'd totally forgotten this company exists. I see they have decent episode count on this release, how's their quality these days as iirc they promised JP levels and didn't deliver.

    Can't say what their quality is these days as i only have the oversized Yuki Yuna release from them, and would need to check the BD's in that set. There were indeed some reports that PQ wise the sets were not on JP levels and there was also an audio problem with their first Sound Euphonium set.

    Not sure how Kuromukuro will be.
