What's the price difference?


Example: CLANNAD After Story
Limited Edition 7,600 yen (with interview with VA, audio commentary, post cards, booklet, trading card)
Normal Edition 5,960 yen
I see their point, ~25% more for all those extras.

Thanks for the info.

Again, it's all called Limited Edition. Isn't that just to make the Japanese buy more? It's pretty fucked up when the limited edition sells more copies than the normal edition. Do they even have a normal edition?


They do have normal editions, which don't include the extra items and videos such as audio commentary, special episode, continuity, post card etc. etc. In most of the cases, the limited editions are sold five to ten times more than the normal editions.

Good that La Maison en Petits Cubes is up there though, I'm actually kinda surprised, didn't think it would be that popular.
I guess it's the Oscars that had something to do with it.

lol yeah, the thought crossed my mind.
