This review is from: B Gata H Kei: Yamada's First Time Complete Series (Limited Edition Blu-ray/DVD Combo) (Blu-ray)This is actually a pretty funny anime with a sexy, naughty side to it. The story revolves around a 15 year old high school student and her quest to achieve sexual relations with 100 different people. However, her insecurities as a virgin, causes her to reject everyones who's asked her out and to search for someone, who's also a virgin, to bestow her first time to. The story revolves around Yamada and her quest to seduce Kosuda while along the way also finding her true love. This is the basic premise for this 12 episodes series. What makes this series funny, to me, are the inner feelings of Yamada and some of her friends. There's a lot of fan service but with no real nudity until the last episode which has two scenes, one in the first half and one in the second. I watched all episodes in Japanese with English subs but did try the English dub for about 10 minutes. They weren't bad but I just found the Japanese ones to be funnier. There were a scene or two that I had trouble reading the subs as they were white layered on top of a light background. Other than this, they were easily legible. I also watched both blu ray and DVD to see the differnce in the two. The blu rays were formatted to fit my TV nicely while the DVDs were shown in widescreen. As far as quality goes, there's no comparison. If you have a blu ray player, watch the blu ray. My only complaint would be I wish these companies would just sell them individually as this would probably save me an extra $10 or so as I have no intentions of ever watching it on DVD. Maybe they need to sell them in three formats, DVDs, blu rays and combo packs.
The series comes in two DVD cases with one housing the DVDs and the other housing the blu rays. Both fit nicely into the cardboard outer box. The episdodes on the DVDs are split into 6 episodes each and the ones on the blu rays are split into 8 and 4. Both DVDs and blu rays have the exact same extras in that the first disc has an episode 1 commentary and the second has episode 11 commentary, outtakes, clean opening and closing credits and trailers. Extras were kind of weak to me as I wanted some cast interviews, linearts and stuff. All four discs have the exact same silk screen with the only difference being the color.

actually i think more companies are doing this way with reg format and bluray disks. almost all the movies i have are the multipack as i have a bluray and a portable dvd player for trips or when i walk the treadmill so i am willing to pay the extra 10 bucks for convience and choice.

Funny you would say that you would never watch it on DVD since you have the blu-ray discs. I would never want to watch it on blu-ray, since I lack a blu-ray player at the moment, and I really wanted to just buy the DVDs separately. Do you think you would be interested in selling the DVDs?

I was just wondering since there are two versions on amazon one says limited ed. which cost less money then theres one that seems normal. Did you get the mouse pad with the limited ed one? Also i heard that the the BD are uncensored, is that true?

I would definately pick up the limited edition release simply because I like the cardboard box that houses the blu ray and DVD. It's a nice bonus especially if it's cheaper. This is uncensored as they do have two nude scenes on the last episode. Other than this, it's just a bunch of fanservice. As for the mouse pad, yes, I did get the mouse pad but I believe it's only a rightstuf.com special where you'll only get it if you order from them. It's just a mouse pad with Yamada in her undies and an arm covering up her breasts. It's only available while supplies last and their website still list it so they probably still have some. However, unlike Amazon, their free shipping is on orders of $50 or more. If you're thinking of picking this up, it's not too bad. Definately didn't waste my money on this one. Check out rightstuf and compare, I've been with them since 1994 and they have never failed me and have the best customer service reps in my opinion. Prices are similar but with my gotanime discount it's usually cheaper and I get the items upwards of two to three weeks ahead of time every now and then.
