Purchase the DVD
If you prefer the old-school method of watching on DVD, you can eschew the video files, avoiding needing to make sure you have your computer set up for DMA. Many outlets online sell the DVDs, which the production studio divided into six volumes. Each DVD contains two episodes devoted to a specific character.
You can shop the Bones Inc. official store to obtain the DVDs plus extras. Purchasing from the official source gets you an extra CD with the first DVD as well as a booklet about the show.
Each volume costs 5,800 yen for the standard DVD or 6,800 yen for the Blu-ray DVD. This price does not include taxes. For budgeting concerns, add about 1,000 yen to the price of either DVD-type fox taxes.
Your purchases will ship from Japan, so wait patiently. It may take a few weeks for them to reach you.
The Bones Inc. store recently added some incentives to encourage purchases directly from them. These vary by the title purchased, so visit the production company’s store to learn the specific bonuses for each. These include items like a diorama, mini character acrylic stands, 3D skateboard chains, etc.
Purchasing from Target stores, Rakuten Books, Seven Net Shopping, Amazon, or Animate also provides bonuses specific to the store.
You can also purchase the DVDs from independent sellers on eBay. Each volume of the show varies in price, but typically starts at about $60 and increases in price to nearly $90 for the limited edition.
The eBay site does offer some unofficial DVDs that include all episodes on one DVD. These typically come from Malaysia. You won’t see these DVDs on the official website for the show. They’re much cheaper but may not be legal copies. They cost between $16 and $25.
You won’t get any extra content or Easter eggs with these DVDs. You’ll only obtain the episodes in the region of viewing that your DVD player uses.
The auction site also sells pieces from the free extras you get when you purchase the official DVDs. You could pay $15 or so for one of the character acrylic stands that you get for free as a bonus when you buy it from the production studio store.
What’s the best DVD deal?
Currently, unless you get gouged on shipping, you get the best legal deal by buying the DVDs from the official source. When you convert yen to dollars, you find this out since 5,800 yen equals about $45.46. That’s quite a bit cheaper than buying off of eBay or any of the retail stores.
That’s because the other stores need to add their retail markup, so they make money on the sale. By buying directly from the Bones Inc. store, you save money and get the extra items that eBay sellers hawk separately.
