Memo from Bebop: The dub sessions remembered
Ein's summer vacation
Cowboy Bebop session #0
Most stuff that comes out these days has both dub/sub on it.
This link here is for a $28 Blu-Ray of the series and it says in the product that it has both. For what it's worth, I have the DVD-version with the same cover and can absolutely confirm that that one has both.
I'm from EU (Finland), so I guess I can get it from the amazon.. But what I was actually asking that is that I couldn't find it from any torrent websites, I guess no one has uploaded it to online.
I wouldn't mind buying it but I still wonder why I can't find any bluray rip out of it.
I guess I will have to just get this then http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00NP06DJE/ref=pd_lpo_sbs_dp_ss_1?pf_rd_p=1944687782 (it's the same on than the funimations one released (Dec 16, 2014)
Well, I initially delayed it because I was going to buy the Blu-Ray box set but I ended up not buying it because of multiple reasons. I'll watch it soon enough, I promise ;>
Yes! there are blue-rays i bought them so I would recommend them, although the aspect ratio is a little weird Here's a link!
The "Bebop Crew Edition" has the coolest design and the most useless add-ons:
Digipak cases suck and PVC Bookends are useless
But $500 is reasonable, right? Just to know how bad Funimation is trying to fuck you:
That shit should actually cost ~$150-$200, tops.
Cowboy Bebop: The Complete Series [Blu-ray] https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00NP06DJE/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_fabc_-LWXFbH5NMNWM
> You literally just calculated the cost of only the LP's.
Which is about 25% of the worth of the sets, yes. And, pretty much, the reason we have this thread in /r/vinyl right now.
> I'm not saying it's not a great value, but they are running much less in quantity than other runs of anything similar.
There's not a hard limit. They have said that there is a minimum, that they would only put things to the presses if they had at least 1,000 people who wanted to buy it. There could be 2,000, there could be 5,000. There's no cap or limit, just a minimum.
> This is the primary reason why Anime in Japan, Blu-Ray releases there, are significantly more expensive, because they run a LOT less DVD/Blu-Ray, they also recoup losses because they don't get as much on TV, and they have higher licensing costs.
This is a 20 year old series that has seen how many different runs on international cable and streaming, is critically acclaimed, and has paid for itself multiple times over. To act like Sunrise/Funimation/whoever else is somehow comign at this from a standpoint of loss is fucking laughable.
> You could expect to see about 1.5 hours of sound maximum on 2 LP's and they would likely be doing a sort of greatest hits style compilation.
Yeah, no. You, at most, can fit about 22-24 minutes of music per side of a 12" LP. If they were going to an hour and a half, you'd be look at at least 3xLP, depending on the specific layout of the tracklisting, which is still maybe another $7+/copy. They've specified a 2xLP, so it's definitely not that long.
> This is a cheap crappy box compared to what you would be getting in the one included
They specified Digipak, who is notorious for shit quality packaging and done en masse, on the cheap. Most likely, it'll be a dressed up version similar to this blu-ray set, which is even cheaper than the DVD one you linked to, which is also gouged up by a secondary seller, independent of Amazon or Funimation.
> They probably have significantly higher profit margins as a goal on top of all this extra overhead, so that will be [over-represented] on a per sale basis especially as smaller scale.
Okay, so their being dicks. Got it. Pretty sure everyone agrees on that front.
> This is an example artbook.... [s]o you go from 36 dollars to reasonably 50 or maybe even more at this point. That's not far fetched.
As for your art book argument, there are much cheaper ones, still hardback, with more pages, for even less price, even by people who still had to license the materials (Dark Horse isn't owned by Nintendo, last I heard). A good window to offer would be from $25 to $45, depending on details in production and where it's made.
Also, sucks about the wait, but yeah, you pre-ordered an art book. Congrats. Did it have a release date? Because either it didn't, you preo-ordered, and then got a release date that's months out or it had a release date announced, you preordered, and the date still hasn't come yet. Either way, yeah, that's how pre-ordering works? I've waited over a year for things like The Protomen's Act II vinyl release, which hit all sorts of snags with the pressing of the album.
> The Lithographs, mass produced, could typically be sold under 10 dollars, but if they are only a limited run, again that's probably closer to 25-30 dollars because the machine time, labor, and overhead from indirect labor is being represented in the price 100 to 1000 times more than something typical like this if it's comparing a 1,000 run versus a 100,000 or 1,000,000 part run.
At least we can somewhat agree on this part. But, at the same point, the lithographs all look the same in the sets, the only difference being what colored paper they're printed on. So, since you can reuse the same plates, it's not as expensive if each set had exclusive prints.
> They should have made one boxset collectors edition to consolidate it (screw the bookends wtf)
Agreed on that front too. PVC and resin books ends retail for $30-$40 books too.
I already did pretty much a full price breakdown over on /r/anime, so thanks for reiterating what I said, at great length, but then just proving me right?
Also, thanks for linking to that terrible graph that has absolutely 0 context attached to it. Really made me understand business more than I already did.
In general, RightStuf has some nice deals, or you could try Amazon.
More specifically, here's Bebop for $30. Can't find Blu-Rays of Gankutsuou, but here's a DVD set. Summer Wars is here. Try this for Black Lagoon, but there's also a collector's edition here. Evangelion 2.22 here. Haruhi here, but as a pre-order and at an absurd price.
I can only find Madoka, Perfect Blue, Baccano, Code Geass, and Fate/Zero at prices you probably don't want to pay.
Amazon and Rightstuf and Amazon has some kind of exclusive special edition.
Release date: 16 December 2014.

This was from this box set : https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00NP06DJE/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_yYSDFbEKDHTMS
I used a program called MakeMKV to rip them.
Cowboy Bebop: The Complete Series Blu-ray and the Cowboy Bebop: Complete Series SteelBook (Available now at Best Buy) are the exact same thing. Same disk content, same disk art even so only the packaging is different. The Steelbook does included a Digital Copy through Funimation though. The standard Blu-ray has been as cheap as $20 on amazon (in Dec) so that might happen again. The Amazon Special edition includes the same disks as the standard Blu-Ray release but also includes the DVD version of the show as well and has a small Art Book and Sketch Book (line art from the show). The Art book is the size of a standard Blu-Ray case and the sketchbook is a little thicker. If you have any questions on the Editions (US) i can help... i own them all.
A few details - it includes a digital copy (through Funimation so not sure how well that works). Disks are the exact same as Cowboy Bebop: The Complete Series Blu-ray which has been as low as $20 (Last Dec).

I originally didn’t have a box set, just six separate dvds that weren’t the “remix” versions.
This one is the one I own:
