It looks like the prices for the US release are up:
45 bucks for the BD, spread out across 6 volumes, with the last volume being more expensive because it will presumably have more episodes/material.
On the one hand, it's half price from the JP release... on the other hand, this is such a dumb way to release something in 2013 for the North American market.
I *almost* understand Funimation and Sentai doing their split season releases. But this new Japanese model of trying the volume release thing again here is getting out of hand.
Of course, if there's an easy way to buy this in Canada, I'd probably do it... so I guess I have no principles.
