Different AKIRA DVD versions/covers???

How many different AKIRA covers are there for the DVD with the metallic looking cover? I saw at Frys awhile back that they had 2 alternate covers. One with the scorched earth cover, and the other with Kaneda standing up holding the gun. They both had that metallic covers.

I found this version in the 5.88 bin at Wal-mart:



It's a single disc, with 5.1 Engrish and 2.0 Japanese. Is this a good version?

The new Signature Series is a really good idea. The Akira disks were really expensive before, so it's nice to get a good price for them. Too bad I already have the SE. Same deal with Lain. The individual disks were through the roof, but the new SS disks are only about halfway up the wall. I really want to buy them but I'd like box set.

(Engrish, huh... Sound about right...)

And to think I dropped $120 on the Lain lunchbox a few years back...

The film sounds best in Japanese, and the 2.0 track on the other discs just doesn't cut it.
