|At the end of season 1, Antefilms started to publish the first Code Lyoko DVDs. Well endowed with bonus features, they only contained, however, 4 episodes on each DVD, and were out of order. Each of these DVDs also had a holographic card inside with Ulrich's face on it, and stickers which, once held under the holographic cards, revealed a number of points, which you could use to battle other collectors of these stickers, like you can see here. Production of these DVDs led to a box set containing the two DVDs before opting for a new strategy for release.|
So it wasn't until season 3 made it to our screens that Moonscoop started to publish the DVDs in thinpack sets with more episodes and at a much lower price. No more bonus features on the DVDs, but containing codes that could be used on the site CodeLyoko.com.
A few days before the release of season 4 on France 3, season 3 was on sale, with a notable error: the absence of the Prequel, despite being indicated on the DVD jacket.
Finally, 3 months after the end of season 4 in France, they started to release the episodes of season 4 on DVD (with the Prequel included), then the complete season 1 for the first time, and this despite a failure in launching a complete season 1 set in volumes containing more bonus features.
|In the USA, DVD releases were taken care of by Funimation, who around the start of season 2 started releasing DVDs containing 5 episodes of season 1 (out of order) as well as an English translation of French bonus features and, in addition, a few elements on season 2, such as a description of Sector 5. But just like in France, these DVDs didn't have much success. Indeed, the quality of these DVDs was quite mediocre. A similar lack of success was met in other countries such as Australia and Singapore.|
So a lack of sales led Funimation to quickly release the complete season 1 set in the USA, comprising of 26 episodes and the same bonus features as on the first DVDs.
The company still tried to release the 2nd season: 5 episodes on one DVD without bonus features. But once again, the huge gaps in the conversions made this DVD very difficult to buy. Another volume was planned but eventually cancelled due to lack of success. It wasn't until 2011 that Amazon, who acquired a digital version of the episodes, released a complete set for each season on DVD without any bonus features at an attractive price, available for a few years. Amazon no longer publishes these DVDs.
