It's just a means by which they are saving money. The anime industry here in the US has taken a pretty good hit over the last few years.

Actually, recent and all upcoming boxsets from ADV will have the extras intact, like the recent Full Metal Panic Heavy Collection (has the original and FUMUFFO in it). HOWEVER, I wish they would go back to the extras-less thinpacks, because these new versions are WORSE. Instead of separating the discs, they have this bizzare packaging that stacks the discs all on top of each other regardless of how many there are. Full Metal Panic's used 6, and they were all on top of each other, and my friend was VERY upset when he bought it and found out. This just screams "easily scratched discs" and is probably the worst DVD packaging I've ever seen.

Gee thanks, ADV, I know you guys are hurting, but this is ridiculous. If this is what it takes for us to get the extras back, then don't, because scratched discs are not a suitable cost. Honestly, if fans need the extras that bad (and not all ADV series had that many extras to begin with), they can buy the original boxset.

I haven't bought anything from ADV in a while so can't say I am. ADV along with Nozomi Ent. are some of the poorest anime companies. I saw one of their reports on ANN a while ago and it was terrible. FUNI of course being on top.

If I was you I'd buy as much of the Geneon anime as you can. Places like rightstuf still sell them and they come with features, posters, etc.
