Nice, I've been waiting for this.

Guess that means that season 1 sold really well.

Not much of a surprise here.

This list isn't too bad so far I'm impressed. Should be good.

The specials? I will buy season 2 then since it will have them. I will wait until Kuroshtsuji season 1 complete collection or until it eventually hits the [S.A.V.E] line before I buy the first season.

Liked Kuroshitsuji subbed better though.

No surprise here, as expected.

I'm curious how Alois will sound with Luci Christian voicing him. I'd imagine a serious/crazy-sounding Hunny?

Good acquisition since FUNi also acquired the 1st season.

Been waiting for when they did this so I could buy both in one shop XD

A pretty obvious license, considering they have the first season.
