    I just purchased the Perfect Sessions set. How is the transfer and are there any reviews out there? I can't seem to find anything other than fan sites and Amazon reviews.

    Mine is number 0392, but I cant seem to find any information about how many there are.

    Thanks in advance

    i just recently got my boxset and have gone through all the dvd's. imo, they look great.
    the only thing i noticed is sometimes, during the "intermission" (when they pop-up the cowboy bebop logo) that i could see some grain...but that might have been intentional...although in one particular one i didn't think so.
    anyway, the transfer looks good enough for me. [​IMG]
    btw - i didn't notice any serial number on my box. where is it?

    After seeing CB, I went back and watched one of my Eva DVDs. Man, did the image and sound on CB blow it away! I think CB has just replaced Lain as the best looking/sounding DVD collection I have.

    Though all 3 are amazing.

    I think the serial number is on the bottom of the box. Thats where mine is.

    My serial number is 12681...a little more than the 5,000 made number Jeff had....

    They had made 9,000 sets and an extra 1,000 boxes for people that already owned the discs. Or at least, this is what I heard.

    Wow, all I can say is I'm glad I got this set! The shows on the Cartoon Network just don't do it justice compared to the magic that is DVD!!! It looks magnificent!

    Well, I contacted Bandai, and they told me that they originally planned to make 9000 limited box sets.

    But they increased that number to 15.000 afterwards, and those 15.000 is all that will be produced.

    That explains why mine is (0392) and Morgans is a 5 digit number.

    is the only thing that makes this a "limited boxset" the special packaging and the soundtrack cd?
    the dvd cases themselves look just like the ones you buy off the shelf individually.
    just wondering...heck...i didn't even know this was limited. [​IMG]

    It's really just the box itself that is "limited". The soundtrack is available all over the place, just as the individual DVD's are as well.
    That box though is a bitch to find though. You have no idea how pissed I am that I didn't purchase the box only promo that Rightstuf had going on a few months ago [​IMG]
    I could have had it for around $20...

    If you don't mind me asking, Blu, from where did you purchase your set? I have been looking for this collection at a decent price for a while (I wasn't in a position to buy it last November with the Xbox coming out), but I haven't seen it for less than about $170 recently. I seem to remember it being available for about $130 a few months ago.

    *hehehehe* Joe, you're funny. I bought that empty box and sold it on ebay for about $60. If you had told me, I probably would have sold it for you at cost. *shrug* Anyway, too little too late.
    I love the perfect box collection. Great thing really. It's the same size as the Japanese Esca R2 DVD boxset. [​IMG]

    Dave,
    I bought this from www.moviegallery.com
    I belive it was the last they had but it might be worth a shot at 150.00 some bucks with shipping.
