Dang... not sure if I want to drop money on this since I already have the Madman releases of seasons 1-3, plus the collector's edition of the entire series. What are the chances that Viz will release a complete series set?

Doubtful, they did this before with first Naruto in 2018 but it was limited and exclusive to FYE (and later Amazon for a short time) and then they put out a second set a year later with the movies included.


For a look at both sets


They have yet to do this with Naruto Shippuden, Bleach & Hunter x Hunter (2011) despite both being done and having been out a long time.

I do wonder though if Crystal will get a complete set since that show is short enough in episodes & discs to where it can work.

EDIT:

Jesus.....


No movies is surprising but then again, they have yet to put out a Double Feature set.

Thanks for the info! I wasn’t sure about Viz’s track record for complete series on Blu-Ray, I just knew they had released InuYasha complete on DVD before. I probably should’ve also waited for the complete InuYasha series on Blu-Ray before buying each individual set but oh well.

I wonder if it's a mistake or if Toei rejected it at the last minute?
Good chance it could be the latter since we saw what happened with Mazinger Z Infinity and it's missing outtakes.

5/14 EDIT:

I was looking online for something regarding the Viz Blu-rays for Inuyasha and found through some reviews and a video unboxing that some of the newly advertised extras are not included there either so it wasn't just Mazinger that had false advertising done.

Inu Yasha Set 1 Blu-ray
Inu Yasha Set 2 Blu-ray
Inu Yasha Set 3 Blu-ray
Inu Yasha Set 6 Blu-ray

Details & back covers are accurate plus from what I have found through a friend's screencaps, the Sumisawa & Wada interviews were taped in 2018 because not only was it listed there but both of them were guests at Anime Boston that year so this is basically the same as the previous year's convention where they interviewed Toru Furuya & Robbie Daymond for Sailor Moon SuperS which made it to the first set.

Inu Yasha Set 4 Blu-ray
Inu Yasha Set 5 Blu-ray

These are supposed to have commentary tracks for episodes 103 & 122 along with a "We Love InuYasha" video extra but neither are there. Speculation elsewhere is it may have been related to covid but then why advertise stuff that wasn't even made and go as far as adding them to the early covers?

Who is Sumisawa and why should we looking forward to this interview?
He was a scriptwriter for episodes of the first 3 seasons

Katsuyuki SUMISAWA - Anime News Network

He was also the head writer for all of InuYasha, including Final Act & Yashahime, hence why Viz interviewed him for the original series' first Blu-ray set 2-3 years ago.

I wish they would give us a complete series box set instead.
No guarantee but considering they're going back to store-exclusive box sets with Hunter x Hunter for Amazon next month, it probably will happen but after the Sailor Stars complete set is out so you'll be waiting a few more years.....

The only thing I'm wondering at this point is if they plan to re-release all of Crystal in 1 set since that's basically the same in content as these new sets coming out (6 Blu-ray Discs for probably the same price).

Man, had they released this back when they acquired the rights to the show, I would have screamed, 8 years ago any doubt in my mind that ViZ was the wrong company would have been numbed. But man, how 8 years can make a person jaded, I am skeptical to even pick this up, but curiosity has gotten the better of me, but if it's the exact same picture and awful translations as the original ViZ (we know they aren't verbatim the same discs based on the image since they evenly split the set, unless that's a lie too.) I'll just sit with my AU releases and original ADV and Pioneer DVDs and just resign myself that the companies that could do Sailor Moon correctly, will probably never get their hands on it.
