Manga Entertainment's Box set picture

Postby Dragonrider1227 » 11 years ago

Does anyone have a picture of Manga Entertainment's boxset of the 80s series? I would just like a picture of the front cover so I know what I'm looking for online and don't mistake it for the Australian set. Thank you in advanced :)

I don't know how to add an image so here is a link that has the correct image:
http://www.amazon.com/Astro-Boy-Collection-Box-Set/dp/B000AQKU6S/ref=pd_cp_d_1

This is the same 8 disc set that I bought at a local store. Its a red box with Manga Entertainment's logo on the side of the box, the first two episodes are cut up, and has Japanese as well as English audio. If you read the reviews they confirm that Amazon.com is selling the same version even though it doesn't mention the Japanese audio in the product description. :heart:

I hope that helps! :cool:
:astro:

I wonder why the details say it's only in English. It also says it comes with the first two original episodes. :confused:

Someone probably assumed it was the same as the Australian boxset....

Hope it helps!

I notice it says English on the back as well even though it has the Japanese audio and subtitles as well. Looks like the Amazon specs are directly from there. Strange. heh.

Its a shame the japanese audio on the set isnt touted more, I remember getting it for Christmas in 2006 and the inclusion of Japanese audio was a great surprise. One of my fave animes because the voices fit so well, find it harder to watch the american version (though not normally anti-dub, just the american version does have some lousy VA work)

Totally! I agree. If I hadn't been told by you people that the Japanese version was included, I probably wouldn't have wanted to buy it
