just finished vol.1 and words cant explain how impatient I am gonna be for 2 months (when vol.2 comes out) Episodes 1-4 made a great introduction to the series. I am looking forward to the rest of the series. I will give a better review when I have time. The box is ROCK HARD and well built. Very nice looking too. The artwork is top notch. Inside the box, you get vol.1 dvd (but you knew that already) a mouse pad w/ the main characters on it (great quality also. I havent taken it out of the packaging yet, it might become a collectable) and a figure of "AI" A little girl holding a cow-goat like thingie. My box is 530 of 150,000. MY favorite part I think has to be the audio. It has a great theme song and the score fits the anime very well. I cant wait to get some home speakers. This is one of those dvds that TV speakers do no justice for.
