    Who has the american DVD rights to Digimon, because I think that show should get a season set release?

    The first 13 episodes were released, there is an unoffical sets for season 1, and the first 32 episodes of season 2.

    I think the show is a underrated classic among anime shows. I am just hoping for th English version to be released. I no there is even less chance of the original Japanese version to get region 1 releases.

    I think it is a shame that children anime shows rarely ever have the subtitle version available.

    Japanese anime has to be licensed by an American studio before it's released in the United States. Just because it's being broadcast on network television doesn't mean that a studio has it.

    Japanese anime is rarely released by any of the major studios and would, more than likely, be released through one of the Japanese anime licensing studios:

    ADV Films, Bandai Entertainment, FUNimation, Media Blasters.
