I have seen many people praising SMCIII for cramping 4 episodes in one disc, and saying the price of SMCI-II is insane.
But is that really true?
I chose regular edition of SMCI-II for calculation.

Assume that the box costs 500 yen, you have to pay 2000 yen for each episode.

Assume that the box and the booklet cost 800 yen, you still have to pay 2000 yen for each episode.

well you also need to consider that each DVD and blu-ray volume release for the first 2 seasons only contain 2 episodes per disc, while each release for S3 contains more episodes per disc; volumes 1 & 2 for S3 contains 4 episodes per disc, while vol.3 has 5 episodes per disc, so if you calculate the amount of money you need to pay for 2 eps per disc compared to 4/5 eps per disc, S3 is actually cheaper because you get more eps for less. Take the regular edition DVDs for example, you need to pay 3500 yen for just 2 eps of S1 & S2, but you can get 4 eps of S3 for 5800 yen; that's 1200 yen cheaper per volume than S1 & S2.
For the limited edition blu-rays releases, most of the volumes for S1 & S2 cost 6500 yen each (only vol. 1 & 13 cost 7500 yen), including all the bonus charms and booklets, but again you only get just 2 eps per disc/volume. While the LE blu-rays for S3 cost 8800 yen for vol. 1 & 2 (4 eps + bonus booklet), and 9800 yen for vol. 3 (5 eps + booklet); that's a whopping 4200 yen & 3200 yen cheaper respectively than S1 & S2. Even though the LE blu-rays for S1 & S2 also include the charms which S3 does not, but would you really rather pay an extra 3200/4200 yen per volume just for a bonus small charm? :orly:
