    EMOTION the Best: Starward Warrior Knight Outlaw Star (DVD Boxset)

    I've been made aware that late last year, a new DVD set was released in Japan. However, according to this forum thread, it's a re-release of the late '90s DVD, not the 2006 remastered edition. Which is really lame.

    Bizarrely, a translation of the boxset's page suggests it has the English language dub, but I won't be buying it if it's the late '90s release anyway. Especially if it cost someone $190. That's insane.

    Still, cool wallpaper.

    Very overpriced. But at least there's still some interest in the show, hm.

    I find this rather hilarious. They won't produce a sequal or do anything when it comes to giving new life into the series, yet they try pumping more income out of something that has been not aired in a very long time.

    Like Nostalgic said, there is still interest in the show, so if you are going to continue making boxsets of the series after 12+ years, then why not actually pick the series back up. Apparently if people are still willing to buy this stuff, then MAYBE they want to see some more than just the same episodes on a $190 DVD set!

    RE: EMOTION the Best: Starward Warrior Knight Outlaw Star (DVD Boxset)

    It seems "EMOTION: The Best" is a range of DVD boxsets, probably from the late '90s. Angel Links is promoted on the website, so clearly there's an Angel Links re-release too. The 2006 "remaster" boxset was much more expensive than this. From a business standpoint, if remastering a whole series proves to be a financial success, merely re-releasing a boxset will generate profits. There are a lot of people in Japan who are very passionate about anime and will buy re-releases. Like you say, it's just for income. I'm still confused as to why they chose the fuzzy original Jap DVD though.

    By the way, perhaps Sunrise's contract had ended with their publisher, so that's why it's getting a re-release? A new publisher? Just a thought.

    Perhaps. I'd totally take the wallpaper for less though, I can tell you that. Here are the promotional sites for them on Sunrise's website, just for the sake of showing it:

    Bwhaahaha! I want the HD version of these shows! Problem is, don't have that type of money.

    I know you like to seperate the Youtube channel from here but what DVD set came with the HD version of the series Mantis?

    There isn't one. I simply upscaled and enhanced the 2006 Japanese remastered DVD release, with English dubbed audio. That is why some people complain that the stretched video makes characters look fat. Most people love the uploads and don't notice, though. Regardless, I'll be uploading the whole series in standard definition soon so I can please all audiences. Probably in both English and Japanese, since I'm a perfectionist to a fault. I'm even considering uploading the series in Spanish. I don't know why, either.
