Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex 2nd Gig [Blu-ray]

I know there were some issues with the Blu-Ray set; however, it appears to be out of stock at Walmart and Target with a $20 price tag.

Known Issues:

The English dub has some Japanese dialogue that is still audible at certain spots. At some points, both tracks can be heard simultaneously.

There are no chapter breaks within episodes.

The subtitles are close-captioned and follow the English dub. They are not a translation of the original Japanese dialogue.

None of the extras from the DVD release are available.

The menus are a nuisance to navigate due to the small font size and odd choice of coloring (gray on gray).

For $5, I can deal with the issues and thought I would share.

Shipping is free with Amazon Prime or with orders over $25.

The issues are there. But they're not deal breakers, especially at this price. IMHO, best anime ever.

Even at this price point I can't recommend supporting the company that made these (Anchor Bay/LionsGate). Fans deserve a proper physical release of GitS: S.A.C.

The deal appears dead already, but just read the reviews on Amazon. There's plenty of detail there.

About the only release of theirs I've extensively watched is TMNT (1987), and it isn't fantastic either.

I know the deal is now dead (didn't last more than a few hours, apparently), but is there any advantage to getting this on Blu Ray over DVD? Would it actually have a higher resolution on Blu Ray being a cartoon?

Yes. The Blu looks better, animated stuff often benefits greatly from format upgrades. A uhd would be awesome

Honestly you're better off sailing the high seas. I guarantee someone has taken the raw blu-ray video and properly subtitled it and including the english dub without Japanese audio randomly showing up.
