Darling in the FranXX Part duex (Has the 2 best episodes of the series in this half, 13 & 15.)

So it looks like I’m picking up GoDanaar as well

Just an interesting thing to note, that some of Funi’s new releases are BD only, The popular stuff either has it’s own DVD release or have BD/DVD combo packs


#2146

I’m confused as to why the Broly movie comes with Goku merch. Seems to me that Broly or Gogeta would make more sense thematically?

Rage of Bahamut consigned to “Essentials” purgatory is still a tragedy. I’m used to stuff that I like not being well received, but I recall this one being pretty popular. Until evidence to the contrary emerges, Imma chalk this up to Funi’s grossly miscast dub. Contender for worst dub of 2016.

Though on good dubs, Maken-Ki Season 2 was a high-water mark for Funi, contender for DOTY 2016. :smiley:


#2147

Darling in FranXX part 2 and Maken Ki 2 essentials for me . Might just throw the two Sentai items in with them . Think I have a 5% coupon in my email .

Eventually:

Hinamatsuri

Also, noting that the no longer available digitally on Funi New Game includes a digital copy, so you can watch the only thing that’s left which is free clips they have for free on their player for free! :joy::joy::joy:

Edit

Probably will pick up a copy of Love Tyrant (also with the New Game style Digital, execpt worse, as there aren’t even extras for this show at this time) once it gets cheap enough. The blade throwing yandere and Jad’s performance (Guri could be the sister of Haruna from Is This A Zombie :joy:) make it a fun ride :joy:


#2161

Probably just Hellsing Ultimate and Hinamatsuri at some point . Might pick up one or two of the essentials releases at some point as well just not sure as to which or when .


#2162

I remember Daimidaler being a fun ecchi show, maybe Matt Mercer’s finest hour as a VA lol, but then the show made the decision to switch protagonists and I just lost interest :slightly_frowning_face:

Why is Funi being stingy with the extras these days? Kinda makes it hard to buy if it’s the same thing that is on streaming.

It’s weird that nowadays the “extras” are on the twitter feeds of dub directors or, in some cases, lost behind Funi’s paywall. Shouldn’t the home video release contain all of the extras and be the best version? :confused:


#2163

Very true. The home release should be the definitive collection. It’s a shame that special features like commentaries and outtakes are being removed from the sets we are paying good money for :persevere:.

However, I wasn’t referring to actual “Special Features” extras like those mentioned above. There’s usually 1-3 minute long clips or a trailer of the show to tantalize potential buyers of the series. Love Tyrant has none of these.

Here's what the page shows on the Funi app, in a drop-down for convince

Versus the only listings for New Game

Of course, this may change closer to the physical release of the show, but for right now that’s how it stands…
