It's nowhere near worth it.
To set the tone, I only purchased this set because I had pre-ordered it back when the set was first announced at $53, and by the time it was ready for release it had increased to $80. I figured there must be some reason it was that expensive, so I kept my pre-order. I actually looked online at FunImation's website, and I thought there was going to be a bunch of other extras like necklaces and pins and metal stuff. But no, there's nothing included that gives any reason to ever pay more than $30 for this set, if even that much.
With this Limited Edition package you get two dvd's and two bluray discs (each format only holding the first 13 episodes); a lenticular slip that's just the same image as the cover to the set (and not all that lenticular-y as far as the effect goes); a 12-page "art book" that's glued into the middle of the set that contains some character descriptions, some odd chibi-style manga panels, and a very select few cover art/splashes from the covers of the Japanese disc releases (the pages are numbered to 26, but that's counting front and back images for each page). The set itself holds the discs in a single plastic tray for each format (a dvd tray and a second bluray tray). Each disc is stacked one over the other, so in order to get to the second disc of each format you have to remove the first disc on top. The biggest flaw with this design is that the center tab holder for the top disc has nothing bracing it from behind when the second disc is taken out, and it's really hard to put the first disc back into its holder.Read more ›
As far as the story goes, while it does have elements of other previous projects, such as Gantz and Claymore, it still remains a unique concept in and of itself. At it's core, Attack on Titan is a story about survival and humanity's refusal to die out, even against colossal odds. It brilliantly mixes elements of post apocalyptic, medieval fantasy, revenge, and even a little bit of steam punk, and it all comes together to form your classic 'hero versus monster' story. The voice acting is very well done, and I cannot say enough good things about the soundtrack. Above all else, I'm grateful that they had the good sense to put the series on hiatus while the manga continues, rather than giving us endless episodes of filler, that nobody really wants to see.
Not much word yet on what this box set will actually consist of, but I will be coming back to edit this review as necessary when more information is released, and of course when the set itself is in hand.
As a final note, I would like to encourage anybody that has already enjoyed the series to buy this product. With piracy at an all time high, it's becoming more and more difficult for anime to prosper in the US and Europe, so supporting truly excellent shows like this are more important now than ever.Read more ›
But this "Limited Edition" is simply not worth the double cost. The 24-page "book" is built into the disc case, you cannot even remove it - and it contains nothing that is not already online on every wiki site out there. None of the images or content in it is even remotely new or unique - except for a few of the "chibi" comics, which are bound to be online in a day or so.
The holographic lithograph on the cover is neat, but it just isn't worth the increase in price. Save yourself the money and get the regular edition.

To me this is a take off of Neon Genesis, however it holds its own and is a great anime!Published 1 month ago by D. D
Great anime. Great story. Great characters. My only complaint is that some of the conversations and inner thoughts (characters talking to themselves) can drag a little too much. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Patty
