Code Geass is one of my favoite Anime series currently on the air. This Sunday the 2nd season started and I was impressed by the astonishing HD video quality of it (though the anti-piracy message embedded in the opening was quite annoying and spoiled the episode). There was also an announcement of making the series available in Blu-ray.
Since Blu-ray region code is shared in USA/JPN it's a good movement, but the pricing is, as always, problematic. The Blu-ray version costs $70 per 3 episodes, so it's eventually $700 for a whole season. That's just simply ridiculous. Most of us can't afford that price. It's a mistake.
Bandai, I'd love you to make H264 720p DRM-free movie files available for downloads, and I'll pay $3/episodes or $70 for the season. You can do that with almost no cost, because P2P can solve the bandwidth problem, and you don't need to care about DRM because we can always pirate DRM-free version, and uploading copyrighted materials is illegal per Japanese law anyway, regardless of the files are DRMed or not.
