It’s… so… beautiful…

Today, YUGIOH.com formally unveiled details of Cinedigm’s upcoming Yu-Gi-Oh! Classic DVD Megaset! Titled “Yu-Gi-Oh! The Complete Set,” the 32-disc collection is scheduled to be released on July 15, 2014 as an Amazon exclusive at the suggested retail price of $229.64.

Yu-Gi-Oh! The Complete Set will be the first time ever the entire Classic Yu-Gi-Oh! anime has been released in one package. The Region 1 DVD set will include the English-dubbed version of all five seasons (224 episodes) of the series and all 12 episodes of Capsule Monsters, as well as the English and Japanese versions of the Yu-Gi-Oh! 10th anniversary Bonds Beyond Time movie. The DVDs will be housed in a special slipcase box that also contains a collectible booklet.

A few DVDs in this Megaset have been reauthored to fix various audio/video problems that were present in the original releases of seasons 2 and 3.

Update (October 14, 2014): Amazon’s exclusivity period for Yu-Gi-Oh! The Complete Set ended today. Other major online and brick-and-mortar retailers are now carrying this title. Your favorite local video store may also be able to order it for you.

  1. Finally! What do you think of the price? Is it worth it to buy this collection or each season separately?

  2. If you are only concerned about the price, you’ll probably be able to buy the seasons separately for a lower price than the Megaset if you shop around. The individual seasons have been out for a while and their prices have dropped since their release. There are other reasons why you might consider paying a higher price for the Megaset though, like its collectibility, exclusivity, and extras, if you are into any of that stuff.

  3. Maybe it’s just me, but I think the Season Sets look much better than this. Mainly because the layout of the discs in the Megaset looks so crammed.

    So I am definitely sticking to my Season Sets,

  4. Nah, I’m sure it’s not just you. The season sets have those sweet spines that line up to form a large picture, which no other Yu-Gi-Oh! products have. And that wouldn’t be possible if they were in space-saving cases, like Thinpaks. But some people might be more space conscious and like the way the discs are arranged in the Megaset. Each of its clear trays looks like it might be similar in size to a Thinpak case. (Now I’m wondering how all of the trays are attached together. Are they all glued to a piece of cardboard, like a gigantic Digipak? I can’t tell by looking at the mock-up.)

  5. And from what I can see, all the discs will be the same color. The season sets are better in that aspect since they have a cool black layout with a select layout for each volume, which I definitely prefer.

    The outer box for the Megaset is cool, but it’s a bit “too” yellow/brown for me. I know those are central colors for Egypt and deserts, which is the basis of this series, but I find it a bit too off-putting. But it’s definitely not bad in any aspect, just not as eye-catching as the Season Sets.

    I am interested in that booklet though. I’m thinking it’s an episode guide or a character guide.

  6. So this collection is the American Dubbed cut version right? I once saw a fansub of the actual first episode on YouTube (not there anymore of course due to copyright). After my experience with the cut episodes of Sailor Moon and Cardcaptor Sakura finding out they had been cut was shocking. I wonder how many episodes were cut/edited in Yu-Gi-Oh! I want the original Japanese first episode where Yugi receives and puts together the puzzle and Joey messes with him. Give me that or if I find out that this has the uncut/edited episodes (even if it is only in Sub) then I’ll pay the $206 rightstuf.com wants for them.

  7. Yes, this is the edited English-dubbed version, the same version that aired on TV. The episode that you are describing where Yugi puts together the Puzzle is actually from a completely different show released in 1998 in Japan. It is simply called Yu-Gi-Oh! (sometimes with the nickname “Series 1” or “Season 0”) and was 27 episodes long. It has never been released outside Asia and I don’t think it’s available to be licensed anymore. The product on this page is the English adaptation of the 224-episode series originally called Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters, which was released in 2000 in Japan.

  8. Does some one know if the dvd’s has An option to set It on Eng. Sub aswell?

    If not, who knows where I can buy the hole set with Eng dub AMD Eng subtitle?

    Thx

  9. Yes, the DVDs do include English subtitles.
