For those interested in Digimon discs, some interesting ones are coming cheaply in March.
The discs for the 7 original run of Digimon movies are being re-released.
These are the movie counterparts to the 4 original Digimon anime series. Each aired during a Toei Anime Fair (with other movies.)
Each of these are the original discs for all 7 movies (the original Digimon Adventure movie didn't get a DVD at release, but was included on the Children's War Game disc.)
These all include the original extras, most of which didn't make it due to the Blu-rays for various reasons (mostly contractual.)
The extras, based on the movie, range from interviews with Mamoru Hosoda and Seki Hiromi, to making of features, card game 'how to play' videos, trailers, TV commercials, stage greetings from when the movies opened, etc.
Visually these won't compare to the Blu-rays, in general, (which we've done breakdowns of), but there are reasons why a fan might want to collect these DVDs (such as the extras.)
The audio on a number of them (I don't remember if it's all) is better on the DVDs owing to production choices, and in the case of Children's War Game (assuming that I'm not misremembering), has colors that are 'likely' more accurate to the director's intentions.
Good prices as long as you don't mind DVDs, moreso if you want to get ahold of the extras.
All the discs are being released on March 10th.
Each DVD is 2,450 yen, under $25 and is available to pre-order at CDJapan: (Affiliate links)
