Actually, it's worse than that. Each volume contains 2 episodes, so 6 discs. So just the discs alone (at Amazon discount) would be $420 + shipping (which, if you buy in some amount of quantity, would average out to about $5-$8 per disc -- if you don't buy in quantity, you could pay a lot more than that). A two-cour show is anywhere from 8-13 discs (usually 8 or 9), and the per disc could be a bit higher if it's 3 eps/disc.

So yeah... without any doubt, it's unreasonably expensive compared to all local entertainment. They're very expensive keepsakes.
