The full set, two disc blu-ray for Hello! Project’s recent winter concert titled WINTER 2011 ~Kangei Shinsen Matsuri~ Kanzen Ban has been announced.
I was surprised to see them announce the release as a set since the last Winter concert blu-rays were released separated, but I am excited to see it being released as a set since it gives fans who plan to buy both a chance to own them in a convenient package.
Blu-rays usually cost around 5250 Yen to 6000 Yen, so it is a great way to have both without having to buy them separately and spending a bit more, but it is a slight disadvantage for fans who only want one of the Blu-rays since you have to buy both.
This should be an interesting way of finding out if the set will sell more than the separate Blu-rays, and in my opinion it seems like it will sell a bit more since it seems that it will save fans about 2,000 Yen (about $20) compared to buying them apart, although it would be great to see some extras to give fans more of reason to buy the set.
Hopefully fans preorder their copies of the set.
The release date is set for 5/18.
