In August 2011, Madman Entertainment released the first season of the long-running Digimon anime series on DVD to the Australian audiences. This was one of the series first (If not the first) complete releases on DVD to the English market and there was wonder as to if anywhere else would be receiving such a release – given over the years demand has risen for series such as this.
Turns out that North America will only have to wait until the 9th October 2012, with North American distribution company New Video Group to release the complete first season of Digimon: Digital Monsters (Digimon Adventures). This set will contain all 54 episodes with only the English dub, alongside a 40+ page booklet featuring the original seven characters and an on-disc photo gallery with over 200 images and sketches.
Recommended retail price is $79.95, however you can pre-order it from Rightstuf.com for $59.99.
