Free Bird

This DVD includes episodes eight through ten. The cover art is the same as the second Japanese disc. They're packaged in the same clear cases as before, showing the same white-on-green line art on the inside of the cover. The disc silkscreen is a black-on-green version of this same image, which still isn't as good as the doujinshi images on the R2 DVDs.
I will warn everyone, although it's probably too late, that the cover blurb definitely has spoilers in it. Again.

Included with the limited edition is a pencil board. This one has the cover art on one side, and the girls out shopping on the back. This is the same image as one of the wallpapers that were on the R2 extra CDs.
Once again there wasn't a Haibane Hakusho included, so it looks like we're not getting anything more on that front. This is probably the biggest dissapointment of the US release.

A small booklet is included which lists the chapter stops. The front of it is the cover art again, while the inside is the same as the second image on the pencil board, all just like disc 2.

The image and sound quality are the same as before, so I won't bother repeating all that. The main menu this time uses the city of Glie as the background, and the music is part of Ailes Grises.

On disc extras include another art gallery and next episode previews for episodes nine through eleven. Again, they're the clips and voiceover, not the original 3D CGI ones.
The main extra here is the preview clip. This is the version that was included on the third DVD of the Japanese release, with a slightly spoilerish (for episode six) audio track.
