I noticed something slightly interesting in the funimation dvds for Moonphase....

1. go to the main menu
2. then go to 'audio', then select 'japanese stereo' and turn on the subs
3. go back to the main menu and select 'play all'

*when you do this the op and ed credits are shown in japanese instead of english.

if you want them in english, then...

1. go back to the main menu
2. select audio, then select 'english stereo' or '5.1 english stereo' & turn off the subs
3. go back to the main menu and select 'play all'

*now the op and ed credits will be displayed in english

Kind of neat, right?

Yeah, in all of FUNimation's DVD releases they always do that format know as "alternate angles". I believe RightStuf does it also.

Is that what Funi's alternate angle is on their DVDs? I've never been able to figure it out before. LOL, I guess I was looking in the wrong spot (obviously I must have credit blindness).

EDIT: I just checked my FMA, Galaxy Railways, Negima, and Moon Phase videos and sure enough that's what they are.

EDIT 2: Just for grins I checked His and Her Circumstances as well (Right Stuf) and sure enough that's what it's for too (though it's backwards from Funi's. Funi defaults to english credits, Right Stuf defaults to Japanese).
Wow, learn something new every day.

OH, so that why the angle symble always shows up on on all my funi dvds, so it actually does have a purpose! I feel silly now #'o'#

Me too, I've actually flipped it a couple of times trying to figure out what it changes. When I couldn't figure it out, I just assumed it didn't do anything and ignored it. Turns out there's actually a reason for it!

Finally volume 4 arrived (with Fate/stay night vol. 2 and Rumbling Hearts vol. 2).
Some time has passed since I watched these episodes fansubbed and I remembered the main points, but there was a lot of "new", that I didn't recall.

Kouhei's grandfather was one of the most interesting characters I have seen. A very likeable person.

A few screenshots from episode 15-18, might be NSFW:
Spoiler:


Just noticed that the last DVD of tsukuyomi comes out the same day (May 15) as the first DVD of that other cute vampire series.

One of the reasons I usually buy what I watch in fansubs... video quality. Since fansubs are encodes of broadcast episodes, they rarely have the richness of a DVD (not to mention all the animation cleanup, scene addition, and edits DVDs usually have). Volume 4 was great to watch...

First time watching this series. Just started watching volume 4 and finished episode 15. What's with that pink-haired woman? And just to clarify, just what did she do to get Kouhei to let go?

Oh, right, forgot to watch volume 3 subbed...Yes, I watch both (if I haven't seen either before).

Volume 5 just arrived..... falling behind, I haven't watched volume 3 completely yet.
Don't remember the sequence you describe, if I get a chance will review it.

And my Tsukuyomi Moon Phase video collection is officially complete.

Yay! (now to try and find time to actually watch the rest of it... including the omake special episode.)

Hehe, I got my vol. 6 today ( and it has one of the cutest covers I have seen ).

I also haven't seen the special episode, so something new to watch, even thought I don't remember how exactly Tsukuyomi ended.

Wow, what an interesting and random special episode.

very random ... ep 26 reminded me that after this series Shinbo started up on Pani Poni Dash. The art style and absurdist plot make a natural segue from TMP to PPD.

I also discovered my computer work box (not my gaming machine) is on its last legs as something I can watch DVDs on. It doesn't have any problem with avi/mkv/mp4 or even older DVDs but playing this DVD just rattled its little brains. The audio and subtitles got completely out of sync with the video.
Its an older box (an old ShuttleXP running w2ksp4).

My gaming box handled the DVD just fine of course... once I installed an actual DVD playing software ... the god damned Windows Media Player kept insisting I needed to update my video driver because there were "DRM digital protection issues" between the DVD-ROM and the video card. Bullshit (my video driver is the latest from nvidea). I took it as a "preview" of what Vista has in store for everyone.

does anyone have the new box set?

is the picture booklet HQ or is it just a cheap throw together? I don't really want to repurchase the series if the book is nothing special.

"new box set"?

I can only find references and listings for the english release box set from Funimation in 2006. Got a linkage? Is this a "perfect collection" type of thing?

edit: never mind, found it on funimation's site ... wierd that Amazon and DVDpacific have no pre-order for it.

Hmmm, the box artwork is sparse -- but I actually kind of like it because the characters are against a white background and easy to see rather than a really busy mess of a background. don't see any data about any included swag like a picture book.

Definitely a nice price for the collection (6 DVDs) though ($69.98). Its due out March 18.

Note: I'd forgotten what a hilariously offbase marketing trailer Funimation had produced for TMP..... you'd think the market-droids would watch more than a couple of episodes before creating such misleading stuff.

DVD Pacific
Amazon
This appears to be the price point all of Funimation's box sets are going to be at. The recent or upcoming Black Cat, Peach Girl and Speedgrapher box sets are all the same price.
Here is the Animeondvd forum thread about the boxset, including pictures. Unfortunately I can't answer your question about the booklets because mine hasn't arrived in the mail yet. If you bought the original, my impression was that the box only included material that was in the original releases. I'm only buying it because it shrinks the size on my shelves (which are getting ridiculously full).

EDIT: Oh, and the Solty Rei box set is the same price too. LOL, I knew I was forgetting one.

Well, I was really only throwing in the links while I was pointing him to a more appropriate place to find out what all was included, etc. I just figured since you included the link to Rightstuf, I would include the link on DVDPacific and Amazon for those people who don't use TRSI. It wasn't really intended to impugn your ability to find the box set on other sites.

Hmm all this randomness and goth-loli thing is getting on my nerves... The animation style is certainly interesting but there is a limit to how much cuteness you put on a char..

And that OP surely doesnt help -.- Nekomimi mode ... Kiss Kiss Kiss >.<
