    1. mochiAugust 10, 2009 at 11:35 am | Permalink | Reply@Sal:Yes, Devil May Cry was complete before this release. However, the earlier releases were for individual DVD volumes. .. in this case, Vol. 1 – 3. This new release packages all three volumes into one collection. This has been the traditional way DVD sets have been released until the last couple of years. The current trend is to skip releasing individual volumes and release series in half season or full season collections. This saves money for the average consumer…though collectors may not be happy.Litebox (also known as slimpack or thinpack) is a type of DVD case which is about half the thickness of a standard DVD case. So a litebox collection is a DVD set which is stored in a slimpack case.Like or Dislike: Thumb up 0 Thumb down 0
