But, I think it was only the first volume that did this. (It was along time ago when I watched it.)

Yep! And not to mention, some of the show was in hard subs, while the rest were in soft subs.

Most of these problems were resolved in the later volumes, but the damage was done.

But consider that Vampire Princess Miyu was put out in the infancy of dvds?

Thanks to all for the replies. I'll have to see how much I like the show (and check reviews of the new release) to see if I want to double-dip.

Been on the fence about Toriko for quite some time, anybody watch the anime, & can let me know their thoughts? It looks like an interesting show that could be entertaining, but it also looks like it can fall flat. Also it's from the creators of DB(which i love), & One Piece(which i don't like at all), so that's another factor that weighs in.

That's not true! Akira Toriyama is the creator of Dragon Ball and Eiichiro Oda is the creator of One Piece. Toriko is created by Mitsutoshi Shimabukuro. The only thing that links them together is Toei who did the anime production for all three, but the staff between the three shows are completely different.

Well, apparently there have been 2 Toriko x One Piece crossover episodes:
- "the producers consider the specials as ep 492 of One Piece and as ep 1 of Toriko"
- from what I read another one in april 2012

I've been thinking about getting Puella Magi Madoka Magica. Could anyone give me their thoughts on it?

I thought it was a great series start to finish. If I had to say one thing about it, it would be that it marches to it's own tune. I'd have a hard time likening it to anything else. I loved it.

Do you think the Limited Edition Blu-ray/DVDs are worth it? I'd like to know because I can get them for about $55 instead of $75 a piece.

Also is Princess Resurrection going out of print? I was looking into buying it, but the dubbed dvds are full retail price.
