I just got this from Amazon.com. No slipcovers, just one, big 10-disc plastic case with most of the trays broken and the case shattered like it had been stepped on. Idk but, for some reason, I kind of expect broken cases with these new "smelly" black plastic ones-- they smell like an oil slick and just seem infinitely more brittle than the old Alphas. The discs? The original release discs, including the defective disc 7. The problem? Disc 7 has a corrupted VOB that should have included the sketch/episode selection menus. If you pick those options the player freezes up. The only way to watch that disc is via the play all button (or select the title number directly), but all the episodes are playable. I think I'ma return this and see if I can get the slim case version as a replacement, or at least a case that hasn't been shattered.
