So I was watching the Olympics last night and went online at the same time. I went to other game and anime-related news of the day, and this headline caught my attention. At first, I thought, “What? No way!” The headline that says…
“New Video Group to Release Digimon Adventure Season 1 on DVD”
My jaw dropped… literally. And looked at the news bit, I was even more surprised. When they say ’complete’, they mean COMPLETE – meaning not on a 2-volume set on a 50-plus episode series, but the entire season on 8 discs for this release! And, even though this will be an English TV broadcast version, it’s definitely worth a purchase for me. And I hope you do too.
The Complete 1st Season of Digimon is coming out from New Video Group under the Flatiron Film Company label on October 9th. The retail is $80 but online stores sells cheaper. I saw one at Amazon at around $70-plus and at RightStuf at around $60.
And, finally, I don’t think anyone saw this coming – even me! No warning of this whatsoever, so this, for me, is a shocking surprise. Again, for me, a definite purchase. Digimon DVDs in America have been released before, but none as big as this! We’re back to the beginning this Fall!
Here’s the New Video link:
