I was sorting Rurouni Kenshin discs this morning, as part of spring cleaning and purging. katchootoo was getting rid of most of her DVDs and kindly gave her RK discs to me, as I knew I was missing some. In the process of sorting, I discovered that she had brought most of the series twice, first standalones, and then the fancy edition boxes, but not all of either. And I had a nearly overlapping set standalones, and I spent a while trying to decide which mix and match I wanted. And then I realized that I had also brought season 1 as a single (not fancy edition) box , and that duh, each of the fancy boxes also represented a season, so I had a perfectly sensible and fairly compact set. Apart from the fact that the fancy boxes' lid keeps coming off.
But I also have my original set of individual dvds for seasons 1 and 2, missing the first episode of season 2, and katchootoo's set of individual dvds for seasons 1 and 2, missing the last episode of season 2. This is somewhat of an excess of Rurouni Kenshin.
