Yeah, though some of these outlets may appear to "cheapen" the product
in some fashion, we the consumer should realize that higher volume often
brings lower unit pricing. That is, unless you're Disney!

One comment on this Mook-Hanho thing. I don't know for certain that
they're releasing only the Hanho, but earlier I'd heard from a third party
that if cels were going to be released, they'd only be the Hanho ones for
reasons unspecified (someone else suggested that the Mook ones were
all destroyed in the Orient, but I've heard junk like this before). Anyway, that
was a few months ago now, so things might've changed, or this individual
could've been talking through their hat. Best call before taking my word for it
regardless. I'll probably call them anyway, I guess.
