Anime companies are ripping people off by putting an extremely low numbers of episodes on anime DVD's. The companies are just trying to make you pay more, becuase you're paying for the fact that it is one or two (or however many) DVD('s), not the number of episodes on each DVD. Most anime DVD's in America have either three or four episodes on them and start out around $25.00. At the same time, FUNimation released the anime Dragon Ball in two-DVD sets with up to eight episodes on each disc, and those sets started around $40.00. So, you're paying for the number of DVD's, not the number of episodes you're getting. It'd be like you have two different cans of two different types of soups. One can is half-full and the other can is completely full, but the cans are the same price, because of the fact that you're getting one can. Not only that, but if you you a are big anime collector, you could end up with an ungodly number of DVD's, when the companies could make them more compact.
