Right now the only downside I'm seeing to this release is the price. This is not a full 24-26 episode anime. Rideback is only 12 episodes. Plus if you like dubs, currently it is listed as being Japanese only. For $65, its a bit steep. This series should be in the $30-$40 price range. Hopefully they'll lower it before release. But even then, you can't really do wrong picking up this series, it is one of those rare gems in anime and its unfortunate that it only ran for 12 episodes.
It's good also to watch an anime that doesn't have constant pantie shots and all that tacky garbage. There's plenty of opportunity they could have done long, slow motion pantie shots, but this anime actually takes itself seriously and doesn't pull of those lame cliches and degradation of women. Pantie shots are so over done in anime it's just beyond...plain immaturity of the industry. But enough about that!
The anime starts off happy at the beginning, but once you reach the 2nd disc, prepare for some sadness.
My complaint is box design.
The box is designed like large boxes that hold trilogies or TV seasons such as Star Wars or *insert your favorite TV box series here*. It's big enough for 2 DVD cases. The problem is, it's a waste of material / space for what is included after the product is opened. It comes with two items inside. A normal sized plastic DVD case. This has case has 6 discs inside. 2 for DVD and 4 for blu-ray. The second case is the same size but is made out extremely thin flimsy cardboard insert that contains the key chain. What do you normally do with a flimsy piece of cardboard that you don't need? Recycle it or throw it out of course.
So now you have a nice large box to contain two DVD cases, that now only contains one. A waste of space and material. I like the box so I kept key chain case and stuck it back in there so they fit. But after sitting on my shelf of over DVD's of anime it gets squished warped. For now it's fine, but one day it's going to be chucked due to wear and tear and so will the nice large hard cardboard case with nice art on it.
