Is there an estimated release date for seasons 3 and 4 yet?

The price difference is a bit but, I'm a sucker for bonuses.

Also looks like the Premium Edition will be the first two seasons in one box, with goodies.
For like 70 Dollars.

I'm going to collect them all so I'm excited :D I've never bought from NIS before but I was wondering if they'd be releasing only the DVD? I want Blu-ray release.

Great job NIS, finally something I actually want to buy :]
Same feeling I have. Too many average licenses these days and not enough treasures like this. Can't wait! Thanks, NISA!

It has amazed me for years why a good quality, popular anime failed to get aknowledged by the West.
Can't wait until this lot is avaliable. :)
Anyway, I hope this firm doesn't have any form of influence on this series.

Seems like NIS is like the only good NA licensor left nowadays. They have the best boxes too.
I hope not. Sentai, Funi, and Bandai are waaay better imo.
NIS's subs are shit I seen their subs of Working!! on CR and the subs for half the series flash off the screen as soon as the character starts a sentence. If you are going to release subbed only series for the love of god please do it right. If it were not for the preinum boxsets people probably would just turn the other way and import or continue to download BD quality fansubs from the net.
What I mean is that they actually license good, quality shows. Now that you mention it, Bandai is still pretty good too.
Sentai just seems to be licensing everything lately, regardless of quality. Funimation grabs some good stuff, but they also license a lot of harems and other unwanted shows.
Aniplex of America gets good stuff too, but I hate them due to their outrageous pricing.
I'd think licensing the good + bad is better than licensing just the good, at least for us. After all, someone obviously wants their harem if they keep coming.
But yeah, I'd sooner judge licensing companies by the quality of their release than what they actually license. Companies like Sentai and FUNimation pretty much make their living with DVD and Blu-ray sales of the anime they license, so their releases are more likely to be simple, especially when they also dub all (FUNi) or a lot (Sentai) of what they release. Companies like NIS America, Aniplex of America, and Right Stuf mostly license either niche stuff like Aria the Animation/Natural/Origination or the random big sellers like Madoka and are more likely to have sub-only releases but with more high-quality boxsets and extras. NIS America is one I've never bought from, though, so I can't judge the quality of their release.
My only problem with FUNimation is them only licensing the first season of an anime and not touching the rest. (Higurashi and Hell Girl namely. >.>)

I've been waiting for someone to actually pick this us, and it had to be NISA, which has beautiful packaging. Hopefully it's a DVD/BD combo pack so that I can enjoy this show in all its HD-goodness, if not, then I'm still buying this since I love the series.
I expect to see some serious eye-candy with these boxes >:3
