Ah, I didn't realize that CPM needed to re-negotiate the contract. I actually don't read a lot of manga, though I am starting to, a little bit anyway. :)

I really like how Funi is releasing things now as well. It's much more economical for both them and the consumer. I don't mind things only being subtitled (it's about time someone else did this other than Anime Works) and I don't really need the fancy packaging either-though I'll admit that I don't think the new packaging is going to hold up as well over time as the old does.

(I will say that whoever came up with the idea for the Trinity Blood box deserves a promotion. I used to laugh at what was once called a 'collector's box'...then that was released and I found it truly was one...but I digress...)

I was more referring to Funi's timeliness in their releases. They were so focused on getting their newly acquired stuff out that they were very late in releasing some of their own titles, and when they released them, the complete set would be released quite closely after the final volume.

I know it was that way with Peach Girl--vol 6 came out in Nov and 4 months later the complete set was available at discount. It kind of irritated some people because they spent all that time and money collecting when they could have waited just a little longer and gotten it all at the same time and cheaper. I know that wasn't the only series that happened to, but it's the only one that I can think of at the moment.

My only complaint with Funi is that I was in the middle of a couple of ADV series, and when Funi acquired them they released the series in two parts, and didn't continue the single dvd releases. It just throws my set off. It would have been nice for them to either finish the individual releases or offer a trade in option (ie. I could send in my set-or maybe just the box-and get the other half of the packaging that would match).
