Will You Buy The Ultimate AKB48 DVD Boxset?

29 09 2011

I’m sure by now you’ve heard about the ultimate AKB48 DVD boxset which is coming out on the 15th October. As you may remember, AKB48 held a number of concerts at the Tokyo Dome City Hall in which they performed past and current stages from 24th May to June 12th – this also included SKE48, SDN48 and NMB48.

For those that couldn’t go to Japan and see these superb concerts, you now have a chance to buy them all on one massive DVD boxset which holds an incredible 23 DVD’s!! All of the concerts that took place will be on this boxset plus 4 making of DVDs, 19 bonus photos and a 42 page photobook. This does sound tempting doesn’t it until I reveal to you the price you have to pay for this phenomenal boxset – a whopping 34,800 yen (nearly close to the equivalent of $500 USD). Now whilst I might like to buy the whole shebang, I think I’ll pass thanks to the price. Perhaps if I manage to find it somewhere in Tokyo during my travels in November/December for maybe 25,000 yen I might dip in to my pockets to buy it.

If you’re still not put off by the price tag of the boxset and plan to buy it then I salute you!! You’ll still be able to buy a smaller boxset (4 in total) which splits the concerts up and they’ll be priced at 9,980 yen each.

This is the breakdown of what’s on each DVD and which group(s) performed each concert:

DVD 1: K5th – Saka agari (AKB48 selected members)
DVD 2:  K4th – Saishuu Bell ga naru (AKB48/SDN48 selected members)

I think I’ll skip this one too. But like you said, if I were to visit Japan and in my last day I wanted to buy one last thing if I have money left, I’ll go for this ULTIMATE dvd collection. hahaha

But essentially, they are just theater performances right? If one already bought those before, it would only be slightly different from the dvd they already have. 🙂

I would buy it, if I could buy it outside of Japan. But when ordering over such special service you pay double the shipping and tons of extra fees… and in the end it probably doubles the price if customs also get added. Now that’s insanity. But darn.. I would love to have it!

Why get DVD?

No detail on the big screen.

I’ll probably be skipping buying this. Too expensive for my taste right now.

I wish and would love for a Blu-ray Boxset to be released. Maybe then I’d splurge the big money to see the concerts in HD.
