I've got my copy of Vol. 1 FMA:B DVD delivered to me today. (European release)

And I've gotta say, it's nothing like American version. It is a LOT poorer.

First of all, it's a simple plastic DVD case. No paper box. Just a DVD.






The biggest dissapointment comes from the inside of the box:





There is literally nothing there. Not a booklet, not even a leaflet. The inside is black and dull. The discs are the same. I thought we would get, at least a some kind of small booklet.

Okay, moving to the actual inside of the disc, so plopping this into my PS2 and doing amateur pictures of TV with my camera:



The menus on both discs look the same. There is Again playing in the background and small buttons as seen at the bottom of the logo. Well, the FMA-themed background is nice, but that hue of red is a bit irritating for the eyes.

Episode selection screen:



That may be the matter of the DVD player that is used, but on my PS2 the subtitles for the songs are red:



and for the episodes yellow:



They are visible, so they're doing their job, but I would prefer they were black&white instead.


It costed me 30$...I don't think I will be buying other volumes.


--------------------
Due to the cancellation of the end of FMA, Kasumisty must think of new signature.

It may take a while.

^That's exactly what I thought it would be like, since it's a MANGA release. xD It actually doesn't look too bad; I like the black and red colour scheme, but I do admit I prefer the red and white colour-scheme they used in the US version. Not to say the above box doesn't look good, because I think it does. biggrin.gif And as I thought, it only had one cover out of the four that were used on the first four Japanese volumes.

I'm not sure about the colour of the subtitles on the set I have, though...I don't watch the Japanese version, because I actually enjoy the dub a whole lot better. xD! But if I were to watch it in Japanese one day, yellow subs wouldn't bother me, in fact, to me they look a lot clearer.

This set would've done me just fine if I wasn't so impatient and got the US version. laugh.gif

14.99 is a much better price too...I pay double that to get it from the US; I'm my own worst enemy! laugh.gif

I think that the MANGA DVD box looks fine, I personally like it! It might have been disappointing for those who didn't know what releases from MANGA are usually like, and prefer the box-set look. But I'm sure people can live without a card cover and a few postcards, so which ever version you get you're not really missing out on anything big. xD

Again? Dammit they left out all the goodies in the European release of the first series as well.

Is it me or this looks better than the funimation dvd. I mean, the euro box art is sucky, but the dvd quality looks a little better.

Rightstuf.com gave Part 3 a Dec 28 release date. This probably means we will see Brotherhood back on Adult Swim sometime before that. Probably enough time for episodes 27-38 to premiere.

If it comes back on with 1 new episode a week, then in order to get through 27-38 it has to return on September 18/25 or October 2/9. Or maybe if it does double premieres, it may not return until late November.

^Awesome! Can't wait to pre-order the third set! And I really hope that your deductions end up being correct! happy.gif

I got part 2 today (US, non-blu-ray version); it was a heck of a wait! laugh.gif I've got some cam pics if anyone is interested in what it looks like/includes...and it's also a celebration of me finally finding the cable I needed to get photos from my phone to the computer! laugh.gif

Firstly, welcome to the forum. happy.gif

And you can buy the blu-ray DVDs from Amazon.com. Right now, part one is $29.99 and part 2 is $44.99. Of course, those are the US (region 1) versions.

Or you could buy the European (region 2) versions from Amazon.co.uk. Part 1 being 24.47 and part 2 being the same price. Although the latter doesn't come out until November.

Sorry if you've already tried those sites, but they're where I got my DVDs. You may already know, but the US and European versions have different DVD cover aesthetics. Kasumisty's post above has the European version box and my post above has the US version. (I just thought I'd mention this in case it plays a part in your decision to buy. wink.gif )

WOW! The dvd cover presentation look amazing! I personally think the covers of the dvd looks better than the bluy-ray. It almost makes me wish I got that version instead. But I do like how crisp and nice everything looks on screen with the blu-ray.

No worries. tongue.gif And good luck!

If you want to try a cheaper option (well, there might not that be big a difference) but you could get the normal DVDs opposed to the blu-ray...This is in response to Starfruit above also, I personally find that the quality of the non-blu-ray DVDs are just fine.

I don't care for blu-ray myself, though. I just like normal DVDs. xD

Really? I always heard that blu-ray has much higher quality when it comes to the clearness of the video. Then again I havn't seen a cartoon in blu-ray(or an anime for that matter). So I guess I'll find out when I buy FMABrotherhood.
