The Samuel L. Jackson voiced anime has already been released as a special edition on standard DVD but FUNimation has decided make the show it’s 5th high definition release.  A surprising move with such a vast and popular catalog but assuming they are capitalizing on the popularity of the show due to the Adult Swim airings.

QUALITY:
Good, surprisingly not as good as their Dragonball Z transfers, but the sound really rocks on this one.

BONUS FEATURES:
Extended footage and deleted scenes and featurettes.

As Sam Jackson produces and stars in the show, I was a little disappointed that he has no presence on the bonus features.  The show is fantastic and the sound is incredible.  The picture could have been worked a little better but, overall, this is a great release.
