Since anime is going... Somewhere in North America (not exactly really mainstream, but I've noticed a definite expansion in the anime/manga sections of stores I visit), it would pay to be accessible. Most people really don't want to pay super-premium prices just to watch an anime series, and Funimation and Sentai know that, but Aniplex seems to be completely stuck in Japan. If SAO hits Adult Swim or Toonami (which wouldn't surprise me in the least), Aniplex had better release that in a basic DVD form, as I'm sure it'd be really popular.Anyways, I think the TTGL set is the same mistake Aniplex made with the DRRR! BD box set (which apparently didn't do so well) last year: it's already been available on DVD for a while at a cheaper price, so everyone who wants it will either already own it or snag the regular DVD, and only the the really big fans will buy it.Oh, and I heard that the Fate/Zero dub might get a physical release- if the super-expensive import boxes sell out. Now that's just a bad business plan.
