    Default DPA box set releasing October 16



    Most kids spend their days at school, but not Hareta. Raised in the wild by Pokémon, he can climb as high as an Aipom, swim as fast as a Magikarp, and even eat bark like a Bidoof! Contains all 8 volumes of the Pokémon: Diamond and Pearl Adventure! series and a collectible poster!

    Old news! Kidding.

    Er, I mean: Yay, box set.

    I'd get it, but I already have the books.

    Although...Minun on the packaging? Seriously? It was already borderline inappropiate to have it be Hareta's pokemon in the last battle rather than Empoleon, but now it's on the package? Wow.

    Any idea what the poster is? I wonder if it'll be the much lauded cover to volume 8.

    Huh, I was thinking it would be about 45 USD, since box sets usually have a distinct markdown.

    Okay, Amazon's showing different box art:

    However, Diamond's was an actual product image... urggh.

    Well, it's possible that they're both official, given that that's part of the front cover of volume 1 and the previous picture shows part of the front cover of volume 8, and we can't see the other side of the box.

    That's pretty cool and it does show that the volumes are selling if they're willing to re-release the series in a box set. I'm not going to get it since I already have all of the volumes. I wouldn't mind just getting the box itself as a way to hold all of the volumes I already have in a cooler/nicer way than just on my bookshelf. I'm not a big fan with having Minun on the backcover, especially when it kind of felt forced to give Hareta a new Pokemon that late in the series and I would have liked it if he had used his main team during the final battle, or Empoleon given their relationship.

    I'd buy it if I didn't have every volume already. Maybe some lucky guy other than me will be able to get it. I wish him luck.

    I haven't got a single volume of DPA.

    This however, will go on my list.

    ARGH! I've already got half the series. As much as I'd love to, I just can't justify getting the box set. ;_;
