Sorry if this has been asked, but does Funi plan on releasing a boxset for Higurashi?

I probably asked this already, so I'll try my best to answer

You would think considering on the funimation page [ www.funimation.com/whentheycry ] under products there is a link for "box set" but all we get is sadly, "COMING SOON!" So, I'm thinking it is... coming... though maybe not soon. Also I'm confused, why would they release an art box and then a box set?

They probably will just include all the dvds with the artbox or something.

Also on Robert's Anime Corner instead of listing a Higurashi box set they are just having a 'bundle'.

The bottom line: If there will be one (I hope!!) it will probably be annouced/available sometime in February, March perhaps?

Hope that helped

That's actually a pretty common thing in the anime industry. By releasing an art box, both those who bought the singles and the box set can have something to put their DVDs into.

It will probably be a thinpack since they are cheaper to produce.

Were scenes removed from the DVD versions of the episodes?

Spoiler:


I don't have a screencap of the face I'm talking about, but I found a picture someone drew of it in the image thread.

There's another scene I just realized was taken out.

Spoiler:


Let me just say, I don't think these 2 missing scenes are the the only ones. As I watched the DVD versions of episodes 15-21 for the first time last night, there were several instances where I believe they removed parts of scenes, but without the ability to see the original versions anymore, I can't say for certain.

Tonight I'm going to watch the DVD versions of episodes 22-26 for the first time, if I notice any missing scenes I'll post about them later.

I just looked and my DVD does have the scene where she sees Satoshi while looking at the moon. As for the other scene, it's not there but was it really there to begin with? Because I don't remember such scene. She does smile a little but that's it.

I just watched an old non dvd version of that scene and compared it to the DVD, both scenes are the same and Shion never makes any look like the one in the fan picture. You must have a mixed up memory of it.

EDIT: She actually does make that sort of look in the beginning part of episode 21 when she is talking on the phone with Keiichi and lying to him about the things that have been happening. You must have had that image in your mind and confused it as being part of the ending scene of the previous episode.

Yeah, Geneon was staffed by idiots at the time, and it was corrected later on.

I bought mine after Funi helped Geneon to release the rest of the DVDs and that error is still there.

It was supposed to be corrected, I recall Geneon actually once released a statement saying they would even ship people affected by the misprint a properly fixed cover if you sent yours in to them, however, shortly after that was when Geneon decided to cease distribution and so they likely never had the time to fix it.

I would hope that atleast once Funimation goes to release their own prints of the covers that contain the Funi logo, they will recognize and fix the proplem on their own.

For all the people that were waiting for a boxset to purchase Higurashi, you're in luck:

The Higurashi Boxset has been given a Release Date

A little rich for my blood but.... maybe I'll consider it. First season was a hoot and I like supporting smaller projects like this as it probably won't sell too well.

That's a little to hefty priced for me. I guess for now I'll stick with the artbox and the separate volumes. Hopefully the boxsets will do good enough to get Funi to license Kai.

Finally!! I've been waiting for a box set to be released forever. That price actually sounds incredibly reasonable to me.

Hmm. Six $25 singles totaling at $150, or one $70 box set...

The box saves more money in the long run.

I wish it wouldn't take until August, but I'll just have to wait for it anyway. Any idea what the box art is?
