DVD Question!  
This is probably a dumb question, and I'm not sure if it's been asked before, but...

Does anyone know if FMA is going to have a series boxed set? If there's one planned, or if Funimation is going to wait a while after the DVD release of the series and the movie?

I'm just asking because I'm really into boxed sets, and having the entire series as a set would be really awesome...or maybe it's just me.

Anyway, just wondering. Thanks. If someone's asked this before, I'll delete it. :D

That's why I haven't bought it, too, but it's hard to resists those tins! :3

I'm gonna refer you to THIS post on animenewsnetwork (it's the second question down). The answer is pretty harsh, but I'd say that the prediction about the boxed set is right.

Ouch, that is pretty harsh...but like you said, probably true. It makes sense, seeing as how they did the same thing to the Invader ZIM boxed set...

Thanks! XD

I don't think there'd be a series boxed set for quite a while. However, I did read in a pamphlet I got at Best Buy that a season 1 boxed set will be released in few months (don't remember exactly when).

Yeah, I agree. ;_; But if/when it comes out I am so buying it...

Which episode ends season one? /noob

Episode 25 is considered the end of season one. Episode 26 is the 2nd season :]

Actually, we saw reruns after reruns after reruns after episode 26 aired on Adult Swim. So technically that's where "Season 1" ends.

I asked last year at my Con (I live in Australia) and the boss guy of the company who distributes FMA DVDs here said it was definitely going to happen, hopefully sometime in 07/early 08.

I knew it was going to happen...it couldn't not happen. =D But hopefully it's soon like the guy said, '07 or early '08...but it's nice that you got it straight from the DVD guy! XD

Yup. I was the last question they took, though, so they probably didn't have time to think of an adequite half-assed excuse.

The chances of FUNimation releasing a boxed set seems slim for right now. FUNi's got a bad habit of releasing box sets much later after the series has been completely released on DVD. Hell, no one even really knows what the hell they're doing with their Dragon Ball franchise since they canned their first set of single releases and decided to go for a complete "remastered" release. Case Closed is finally getting more episodes crammed into bigger sets of DVDs, as is YuYu Hakusho.

Pretty sure we won't see anything just yet until after they actually decide to also release the OVAs.
