    Amazing series, but B&N buyer beware!!!

    This is a classic series, and it belongs with The Godfather trilogy as one of the most exceptional looks at the "gangster life" (American, Japanese, or other) ever put to celluloid. It's bloody, emotional, introspective and nihilistic, and a perfect way to spend a weekend chilling out on the couch. Fukasaku is a master writer and director.

    Be warned though, if you're looking for the limited edition tin collector's case, Barnes & Noble does not carry it. I ordered it assuming that the price ($81 after discount? Yikes!) reflected the edition, but when the set showed up at my door, I was hugely disappointed to find that B&N only carries the regular cardboard edition. This isn't the first time I've ran into this problem; the ISBN# for both editions are the same, as is the box art. You can find the tin edition on ebay, but I'm a little perturbed that B&N would dare to charge up to $90 for the standard edition. As usual, their prices are completely out of whack. I did get a refund, though.
