    I purchased the Maison Ikkoku R1 DVD sets on eBay. All 8 of them. No, it was not cheap.

    For some reason I don't see a re-release of this one, and the original box sets are amazing. I cannot wait to get them all.
    But at least you owm it now.
    And also, who knows if we'll ever get it over here again?
    I say if one says they have it within the next 2-3 years, it was worth getting.

    Nope, not even gonna try...

        I watched a majority of the show on a bootleg years ago then broke up with my ex so it was never finished. I was okay with the quality on the bootleg (and it was dubbed too) so I am sure I will be fine with these DVDs. But yeah, if I knew a Blu-ray was coming I would have waited. I am impatient and......the box sets are so lovely. I feel like I have a nice collector's item. I am such a nerd.

        • Whenever the DVD set of a series has some really attractive or awesome packaging, I'll just wait for the eventual Blu-ray release and buy the Standard Edition set (it's usually not too often that an older series will actually get a nicer LE release nowadays anyway), and then Frankenstein the BD discs into the DVD set, so I can keep those attractive DVD art boxes on my media shelf. I just buy some matching DVD cases but with an extra disc hub in each case, add in the Blu-ray discs along side the DVDs, and turn it into an even more awesome BD/DVD Combo set instead...

          • I am pretty livid you guys, and I am sure you will understand. My boxsets of Maison Ikkoku 1-7 came today (8 still on the way).

            Part 1 is a bootleg I already own and is barely functional. I am sure you can imagine how enormously angry I was. I remained civil to the seller. I just hope they will agree to a partial refund. The auction said they were R1 DVDs. All of them.

              Dude, no. Just NO.
              You demand a full refund, that is not cool that they pulled a bait and switch with you.
              Where did you buy that from?
              If it was Amazon or E-bay I'd report that.

              • Good news. Only one of the boxsets was a bootleg. I explained to the seller and they refunded me the proper amount it would equal to (I got what would have been 1, 4,5,6,7 from this seller and the rest from another). He refunded me $50 which is exactly what an R1 copy of Maison Ikkoku box 1 costs used on eBay in working shape, so now I have it and volume 8 coming in the mail, so luckily it all worked out in the end. He said he honestly didn't know and needs to educate himself better on what is and is not a bootleg. I left him good feedback.

                  • Isn't Volume 8 the hardest one to find? I'd really check that one over when you get it, as that would be the most likely one to be a bootleg...

                      I saw pics of it. And as much as I paid for it, I know it isn't a bootleg. I promise you that. *blushes*

                      • Ok, good to see you're on top of things! At least it wasn't hard to replace the first Volume. Congrats on getting a complete set!

                              • Preordered the Gundam Wing UE. Also, it's not exactly a purchase, but went for the $95 tier on the Aria Kickstarter.

                                And I just saw that my copy of the Chihayafuru LE just shipped. Thank goodness Sentai didn't have to delay that one.
