S-cry-ed was organially released as 6 disc each containing ruffly 5 episodes. Then they did a box set for the series, and now they are releasing the series in a 3 disc installment. Its all marketing. But to get to the point this contains the first 10 episodes. So in actuality this is a better deal to buy the 3 set then either the box or the 6 stand alone disc. The first 10 episodes of s-cry-ed introduces the characters and their struggles. I found as I watched the series I grew frustrated but couldnt stop watching because I wanted a clear and defined bad guy. But kazma and ryuho were constantly pitted at each other, first I was routing for kazma then the story kinda shifts and you find yourself wanting both to suceed. Lots of action. Great story, and very good animation. Id say this is one of the best anime ive ever seen. And yes we all know cougar is awsome :) so if you havent seen this, catch it on cartoon network if you like it then its worth owning. For those who already want to buy it, its worth it I know Ive gone back and watched it atleast 5 + times now.
