Published by 03 March 2015, 11:50 PM EST

The third box set of the “Majin Boo arc” of Dragon Ball Kai was released today, with the cover art featuring an illustration of Super Saiyan 3 Son Goku by Tadayoshi Yamamuro. The box set contains episodes 123 to 134 of the Japanese broadcast version of the series on 2 discs and comes packaged with an exclusive booklet. The Blu-ray box dropped with a ¥15,200 (~$148.00) retail price point, while the DVD set comes in a little cheaper at ¥11,200 (~$110.00). Both formats of this release are currently available on CDJapan and Amazon Japan.

The fourth box set of the “Majin Boo arc” is still tentatively scheduled to be release on 30 June 2015, and is set to cover episodes 135 to 146. Episode 143 of Dragon Ball Kai was recently broadcast this last weekend in Japan, which covered the events up thru episode 265 of Dragon Ball Z, and the series is currently anticipated to run into June 2015 with approximately 158 to 160 episodes. As of now, a fifth box set has not been announced, but it is anticipated.

We are also able to confirm, thanks to our amazingly awesome international fans, that the Japanese version of the series has been mirroring the international version of the series (“The Final Chapters”) since episode 107. Essentially, the first 15 episodes of “The Final Chapters” were condensed down into the first 8 episodes for broadcast in Japan. Beyond that, both versions have been identical, with the exception of their openings, endings, and eyecatches.

We will do our best to keep you posted with any new developments with the series as we approach its finale, whenever that may be.

    And I thought Aniplex of America was bad with pricing-to-content ratios. $100+ for 11 episodes? Yikes!

      Well, it’s actually 12 episodes, but I suppose that doesn’t really make it any better. Overall, home video releases are just more expensive in Japan than in other parts of the world.
