3 - The first press version of Akira came in a nice slipcase and had a 12 page (I think?) booklet detailing the extensive audio restoration the film went under. The case and disc are identical otherwise.
4 - Freedom has a 7th episode on Blu-ray.
10 - Yeah, Honneamise is f***ing expensive.
I got mine for about half-off and I STILL had to fight back the urge not to get it... but it's such a great film, I'm glad I finally nabbed it.
I have RIN: DAUGHTERS OF MNEMOSYNE and watched a good half hour's worth of the first two episodes. Very nice SD upscale, quite sharp and no DVNR/EE like their early releases... unfortunately there's some deinterlacing artifacts that create frame-blending. (The FUNi DVD probably has the exact same problem, though.) It's not the worst problem to have and the release is probably FUNi's strongest "SD Remaster" yet, but it is pretty annoying if you can spot it.
