4-DVD BOX SET
Available dubbed in English language or in the original Japanese, with no sub-titles.
It appears there are some issues and confusion over the fact the packaging on “Bobobo…” stated that the episodes were viewable in English or Japanese with English sub-titles. This was an error on our part that wasn’t caught by anyone here and more importantly, not caught by anyone at TOEI who went over the package design with a fine tooth comb. The episodes can be watched in either Japanese or English language only but rest assured, there was no intent on our or TOEI’s part to mislead the fans.
All 70 plus episodes of the series were never available in a sub-titled format (I understand a small number of episodes were sub-titled in a previous DVD release) and neither TOEI or S’more could justify the cost of creating new, sub-titled versions of the episodes. Overall DVD sales have dropped to the point where most companies would not be willing to commit the time and money needed for packaging and authoring on a series like this but we felt the series was important (and fun) enough to justify the risk.
We’ve dealt with serious fans before, releasing series such as The Monkees, MST3K, Transformers and Battle of the Planets so we understand (and respect) their attention to details. It was never our intention to mislead anyone and we’re hopeful that you and other fans will embrace the series as presented, appreciate the effort that went in to creating these packages and will be happy that the complete series will finally be made available.
