I'm Disgusted w/ FUNimation's release of the Ryohki saga

Okay, first off I'm a HUGE Tenchi fan. But, I gotta say I'm so freaking PISSED at the way the Ryohki saga was released. What FUNimation did was flat dispicable and was a blantant attempt to extract extra money from the fans.

So for those who aren't sure what I'm referring to here's what happened the new OAV saga is SEVEN episodes and get this FUNimation not only took a FULL year between the release of disc 1 and 2, but they shoved ONE F---ing episode on the last DVD. THAT was IT... ONE episode and I had to shell out extra money to buy that ONE disc.

So this is totally a rant on my part and is no part a criticism of the actual series itself, but i'm flat out disgusted at the way it was released.

Yea I was / am still pretty peeved about this as this was flat out the most blatant attempt to squeeze money out of anime fans ever.

That said, I personally would have been okay with a TWO DVD set. If everything had been released at once. I mean, who's going to buy the first one with out buying the second one. Which is apparently the logic used in putting one episode on the third disc.

Well, I'm sure the FUNimation people would argue they give you a lot of value as they did provide 40 minutes of live action bonus footage - which amounted to two voice actors talking and explaining various parts of the Tenchi saga.

But, as far as actual Tenchi animated footage is concerned, you're correct there was about 30 minutes of it. Including the opening and closing themes.

Oh and as iwakura pointed out it did come with a nice shinny collector's tin.

Truthfully, I would challenge anyone to show me a more shameless thing done in an Anime release.
