Re: Has anybody noticed? - 06/22/12 12:30 PM

Yes and yes!

If they keep on delaying "Is This A Zombie?", it'll probably be converted back to a combo pack (original plans), since the one year lead time for Blu-ray will be up.

Fine by me, I'll still get the DVD with that method; but the wait is killing me. eek I'll be happy as long as it doesn't go the route of Great Guardians.

I contacted RightStuf about the the Koihime Muso Ultimate Collection. Apparently it was a typo on their part and it is in fact not dubbed, like the original releases. They are going to edit the spoken languages portion of the item description accordingly. Shucks, I was pretty excited to hear a dub for (Shin) Koihime Muso (Otome Tairan).

Re: Has anybody noticed? - 07/14/12 03:23 PM

I know right? I was all excited, just to be let down. I think I could get a better handle on the series if it were dubbe, considering there's about fifty bajillion characters and they each have two names.

Re: Has anybody noticed? - 07/26/12 10:26 PM

I wholeheartedly agree, and thought that they did; but alas... this was not the case. If it was, I would be tempted to buy the series again. I think the sales for the new collection would have skyrocketed had they done a dub, not to mention the Koihime Muso series is awesome and deserves a dub.

Posted by: EricDent

Re: Has anybody noticed? - 07/27/12 12:26 AM

Yeah Bandai was usually pretty decent at keeping the discs in good cases.
Especially in the Anime Legends sets.

I have these and all are in lite boxes (I think that's what they call those cases with the wings):

Love Hina
My Hime
My Otome
Scrapped Princess
Haruhi Suzumiya Season 2 (yeah not anime legends but still a good case)
Outlaw Star
sCRYed
Cowboy Bebop
K-On! Season 1 (this went the extra mile with a wing for each pair of discs, plus it's a standard DVD size case)

Okay, Iíll stick with my self made collection ( in a 14mm case ) that I already have.
A standard sized Case ( 14mm Iíve always seen it listed as) is in the American measurement standard Ĺ inch-ish.

I usually get mine from US Plastics-they sell single cases and don't make you buy a lot of 10 or more, their prices are pretty reasonable but the s & h can be a little steep.

Re: Has anybody noticed? - 07/29/12 03:00 AM

I've been to the US Plastics site a couple of times, although I'm hesitant to shop there. As for the Checkout Store, it's too bad they don't list the case widths.

At Checkout Store, 1 disc up to 6 disc's, they are the 14mm ( 1/2 inch-ish ) wide one's, the same size as a single disc case.
After that they do get wider, but they are the new ( kinder, gentler ) wider sizes.
As oppose to the ones in the past...
Checkout Storeís 8 disc Case will be the same size OR smaller than the 8 disc Cases sold by others.( usually smaller )
Also other places that sell Multiple Disc Cases sell the older Style ( aka: wider )
Like the 6 disc case will be the size of an 8 disc case ( and the older wider 8 disc cases at that ), like what all the Anime Legends stuff came in, etc....
( at least a lot of the Anime Legends stuff I have seems to have came in cases the size of an older 8 disc case )

Believe me Iíve bought from them all in my effort to Consolidate my Collection.
Checkout Store is the way to go !!!

Re: Has anybody noticed? - 07/29/12 02:05 PM

Thanks again B Dub. I checked out their site again. It does list approximate widths. I'm gonna investigate their site further. Looks pretty affordable, and the customer reviews seem to be pretty good. It might be just what I need. BTW the clear and white cases are just a tad more expensive than the black cases, but may be of higher quality. Is this true?

Hmm.....*I'm grabbing and checking out a black case and a clear case*
The clear oneís seem to be more pliable ( less rigid, more flexible )

Re: Has anybody noticed? - 07/29/12 10:34 PM

White is also an option, does anybody know of any reason why (or why not) one of the three usual choices (black, clear, white) is better (more durable) than the others?

Yeah, I noticed.
Like I said in an earlier post, I'm kinda upset that it's blu-ray only.
But the big thing is that we're still missing the second part of When they cry, as well as the two OVA series... I can do without the OVA's but I REALLY REALLY want Kai.
I want to see how the story ends dangnabbit! mad
I won't lie... I probably will get it, I just need to see how my budget will play out the next few months and plan accordingly.

ive had good luck with clear cases, i use them all the time if i ever have to replace a case. i dont really notice a difference between the white and black cases in quality. i'm not really sure what the reasoning is for why the clear ones i have outlast the black cases though. *shrug*

I've Heard good things about Steins;Gate as well.
But nothing but a LOT of mixed reviews on Umineko.
The vibe I'm getting from them, is that Umineko is best enjoyed ironicly, kinda like how people say Showgirls is so bad it's good.
I like trainwreck anime so I'm game for that. smirk

I wonder if they're having some kind of technical difficulty with it. Or maybe they're putting it on the back burner because pre-orders for the first season combo pack have been slow. I can't imagine that pre-orders for season 2 have been slow. A lot of us have been waiting for this for a long time.

Yeah, it's a good series. It takes a little bit to get into because of all the concepts that they have to explain, but it has likable characters and a good number of action sequences. And while the parents are usually just background characters in these shows, Yuji's mother really gets a chance to shine in episode 11(?)

Wow. Blu-ray only. Sub-only. 15 episodes on six disks, plus a booklet, and the MSRP is 2-3 times what you'd pay for a comparable series from another company. crazy

But at least they've solved their reverse-importation problem. Just don't allow export back to Japan. laugh

No, if they were going to dub something, it would more likely be the blu-ray. Then they could kill their reverse importation fears by making the blu-ray dub-only, and leave the DVD version to be sub and dub. Leaving the blu-ray sub-only is pretty much proof positive that they have no plans to dub it.

I've thought about that, but I'm not too worried about it. I have way too much other things pre-ordered for December anyway. wink If the movie has a DVD sized case, I'll probably put it in there.

Re: Has anybody noticed? - 09/17/12 11:16 AM

I have noticed, of late, that a lot of Funimation's marketing/artwork misses the mark. In fact, their artwork often implies things that are not true of the story at all.

For instance, in the advertising artwork for Ai Yori Aoshi, they made Aoi look like a tramp or a hooker, and in the text they implied that Kaoru was hooking up with all the girls. Not true at all.

In the case of Haibane Renmei, they started off their product description with some nonsense about God sometimes not being able to forgive. It's been four years since I've seen it, but I can't remember any point in the story where they stated or implied that the Haibane were unforgiven by God.

Now, we have the cover art for Serial Experiments Lain, and they've made it look like she's a psychotic serial killer. Lain is creepy, but it's nothing like that.

Seriously, somebody needs to call their marketing department on their mistaken and/or deceptive practices. frown

Oh, wonderful. They pushed the release date for Index back to Dec. 11. When did that happen? :P

If Funi keeps pushing back release dates, I'm gonna start worrying about what's going on with them.

Nah, I wouldn't worry about 'em like that.
Most likely is that they want to make that a combo pack.

I remember that the Creator of Serial Experiments Lain was unhappy ( disappointed )
That we, the Western ( non- Asian ) audience Got it & Dug it.
Because he didnít want us to understand it.

Iím referring to the subtext, theme / message, of the Series, stuff like that.

All you have to do to find out what Iím referring to is to
Google Serial Experiments Lain, than read the Wiki that pops up about it.

That's how I found out.

Crapamation has a nasty habit of hyping their rescues in a totally different manner than they were in the originial release-when I went to their industry panel at the convention this weekend they were hyping Aria The Scarlet Ammo as a boobfest which it really isn't. Granted-I watched the show fansubbed and hated it-but it wasn't a sex laden booby series.

I would imagine that marketing is a wending and tenuous path to walk. On one side; the distributor, who's mission is to get the anime to the fans, has their financial backers telling them to "sell it" at all costs. On the other; the've got the fans, who are are a fickle lot indeed. Sure; they've all got money, but they don't all have the same interests. I'm guessing that to make enough money to appease the financial backers, distributors are forced to target more than one demographic in a ploy to garner enough sales.

Case in point:

In each of the aforementioned anime: Ai Yori Aoshi, Haibane Renmei, and Serial Experiments Lain; the main targeted demographic is hardcore fans of the series who are overjoyed to see it's rerelease. These sales are a good bet, but are they enough to appease the mighty financial backers? Who can say? Here's a couple examples of a second demographic that distributors may be targeting:

Ai Yori Aoshi: The notably saucy cover is uncharacteristic of the wealth of pure wonderful romance to be found in Ai Yori Aoshi. Given. On the other hand, the naughty fanservice on the cover helped push kiku "off the fence" and was a contributing factor to my purchase of the item. Without it, I may have never experienced the love that Kaoru-sama and Aoi-chan shared. It was a blessing in disguise. Plus... Aoi is hot.

Haibane Renmei: I myself preordered this title the moment it went up in the "new/changed items" list at RightStuf; because I'm aware of the hardcore fanbase that Haibane Renmei has, and felt that it warranted a place in my collection. To attract more sales however, using religion in advertising is a strong gambit. The best part is: a small percentage of the consumers that bought into it for religious controversy just might discover a really great "little gem" of an anime and become even bigger anime fans. Anime FTW!

Serial Experiments Lain: As stated above: " myself preordered this title the moment it went up in the "new/changed items" list at RightStuf; because I'm aware of the hardcore fanbase that Serial Experiments Lain has, and felt that it warranted a place in my collection. Again, the distributor is using controversy as a selling point. Ya gotta admit: They did succeed in making the cover creepy. This tactic has been used since time immemorial in anime and has since been a staple of anime's allure IMO. Granted: it may be misleading as to the material, but any anime fan worth their salt is well versed in being mislead by covers and marketing.

These business tactics, if successful, will aid in reaping the yield that the financial backers require. Hopefully, this will be the impetus that they need to invest in even more anime licenses. That means more anime for kiku, and... I love anime.

When I see the new cover I think, Yup, thatís Lain alright.
If you had to sum her up with one picture, I think thatís the right one.

I make a good deal of my Anime choices based off of the feedback from you guys.

According to WTK on the Fandom forums they are the same. At first that was not the Blu-ray cover and they were different. I'm glad they changed it as the old Blu-ray cover was not that great.

I canít believe that zrdb, I just cancelled and re-ordered several Anime here at RightStuf.
They were item's that you weren't able to use a Got Anime Card on at first.
But now you can, so I called, Told them why I was cancelling ( they do ask ) and cancelled.
I then reordered and got the 10% discount.

He seems to mainly use Mirai to promote his show "Culture Japan" anyway. Which is still going on and the 3rd season should be starting up soon.

He tweeted he was meeting with the anime company that was making Mirai Millenium a few weeks back, to talk about character designs with them. So I guess progress is being made.

Re: Has anybody noticed? - 11/07/12 12:05 AM

Well, I hope he can pull it off, but I have to admit that I'm really skeptical. The last time I read up on this, Choo was talking about how expensive it was just to animate the "Mirai" characters for the intro to "Culture Japan". It was so expensive that he had to take shortcuts just to finish a 90 second intro.

Frankly, he talks a good game, but I'll believe it when I see it.

Re: Has anybody noticed? - 11/13/12 11:34 AM

So... by purchasing the subbed Qwaser Of Stigmata (and manga vols. 1 & 2), am I helping the state of affairs by fiscally showing public interest in Qwaser Of Stigmata; thereby improving it's overall chances of getting a dub? Which would behoove you guys and myself (I'd buy it again). Or... am I deteriorating the state of affairs by bending to the will of a company that is releasing a sub only product, thereby reducing it's chance of getting a dub because said company already got it's pound of flesh?

Granted, no matter what the case is; I'm buying it in whatever format becomes available to me.

Re: Has anybody noticed? - 11/13/12 11:38 AM

Me too. Once in a Blue Moon, I've even been known to buy something twice. Once subbed, and then again when the dubbed version is released. Conversely; I've purchased anime, and then discovered a more complete set. These cases are rare, but do happen when regarding an anime I really like.

I don't do it willy-nilly though. The Madoka L.E.s for example were out of my league. There was an Anime Classics Complete Series Edition of Gunslinger Girl that I wanted too, but I couldn't justify it considering I already own everything contained in it piecemeal.

Yes! Part of their print on demand service that Sony started up on niche titles. Personally, I'll just watch the shows on Crackle for free.

Correct.

Re: Has anybody noticed? - 11/28/12 05:39 AM

It also means that if you think "nah, I'll get those in maybe 2 years after I first buy a bunch more high priority titles" you might not get them at all, because they'll possibly have been pulled by that time.
ImaginAsian isn't Sony, but AFAIK their Orguss TV "print on demand" offer lasted less than a year before it was pulled. And pulled in that case meant "can't find it anywhere, not even if you want to pay double MSRP".

Thanks for the response Cheap One.

Thanks for the response SD Maruko-kun. I'll keep that in mind if a title I simply must have comes out in that format. There's also something to be said for putting your money where your mouth is. By purchasing said cheap DVD-R's, or conversely, overpriced items, you are showing market interest; thereby increasing demand for such products. Not purchasing them, is almost like voting against them. I've put my money where my mouth is on more than a few occasions. It helps that there's a lot of anime out there. I've also lost a few battles. I'm now the proud owner of two Blu-ray players. Something I have previously said that I would never have. A person's wallet (or purse) speaks volumes, more than their vote I venture. It can tell the industry: "No, I wont pay prices relative to Japan's because I don't live in Japan." or it can tell the industry: "Sure, I'll pay good American dollar for a substandard format because it's the only format available." The choice is yoursours. I have been making some tough decisions, but I spoke my voice, by not purchasing particular items that I otherwise might have purchased; and will try to continue to do so.

Examples:

1.) Wanted the Fate import, but didn't purchase due to outrageous cost; although I have paid more for anime in the past.
2.) Wanted Bakemonogatari fanservice extravaganza, but decided against it due to it's price reflecting the current state of affairs in anime in Japan rather than America (overpriced).
3.) Interested is piqued in recent DVD-R releases, but not interested enough to warrant purchasing a substandard medium.

@kiku: I know the feeling.
I myself absolutely refuse to pay for DRM-ed anime files, so I don't "buy" the Eve no Jikan/Time of Eve release on iTunes, even though I really, really would like to support the makers of that wonderful small anime.
And IIRC the only other subbed option would be to import the expensive Japanese Blu-Ray even though I don't have a Blu-Ray player and don't intend to get one either. (trololol: the Japanese DVD doesn't have subs)
Damn it! Why can't those guys just put a paypal donate link or something like that on the Eve no Jikan website!

Re: Has anybody noticed? - 11/28/12 03:36 PM

Is there some sort of relation between Macross and Orguss that I'm unaware of, or are you simply referring to the title similarity? BTW you can find Orguss 2 on DVD online for about $30.00 used or $60.00 new. BTW (again) What is DRM-ed?
Posted by: Cheap One

Re: Has anybody noticed? - 11/28/12 03:47 PM

DRM is Digital Rights Management

It is the thing put into music, video games, shows and movies in eshops that locks content to just one machine. Makes it a pain to move the file to other devices you own and of course what it was made for it also makes it a pain to pirate.
Posted by: kiku

Re: Has anybody noticed? - 11/28/12 03:53 PM

Is it a solid copy (DVD) as well? If so, the solid copy could be moved device to device. Please forgive my ignorance.
Posted by: Cheap One

Re: Has anybody noticed? - 11/28/12 03:59 PM

Some times it will be put into a DVD as well.

DRM is mainly put into stuff you buy from eshops like iTunes that he mentioned. The digital stuff on the A site will sometimes have it as well, like Ubisoft games.

AFAIK the 3 TV series ran on the same Japanese channel sequentially in the same timeslot (Macross 1982-10-03 to 1983-06-26, Orguss 1983-07-03 to 1984-04-08 and Southern Cross 1984-04-15 to 1984-09-30) and the channel "themed" those 3 mecha anime together by giving them a common prefix... wink
(plus there's some production company overlap between them)

Oh, how prices diverge between versions... Orguss 02 DVD (R2 UK): "new from UKpounds 2.54" wink (and an american marketplace seller "trolling" by offering the R2 UK release shipped from the USA) on the UK site of a certain other shop...

Re: Has anybody noticed? - 11/28/12 05:21 PM

The Macross Trilogy is as follows:

Original Japanese "Macross" trilogy release:
1.) Super Dimension Fortress Macross
2.) Super Dimensional Calvalry Southern Cross
3.) Genesis Climber Mospeada

Stateside "Robotech" trilogy release:
1.) Macross Saga
2.) Masters
3.) New Generation

Super Dimension Century Orguss Two is a sererate entity altogether if I'm not mistaken. I don't believe that it is in any way related to the Macross/Robotech franchise, although I could be wrong.
Posted by: SD Maruko-kun

Re: Has anybody noticed? - 11/28/12 06:21 PM

In Japan, AFAIK Mospeada had zero relation to Macross and Southern Cross, while Orguss (which is the prequel to Orguss 02) at least shared the "Super Dimension(al)"/"Choujikuu" prefix + channel & timeslot with both.
(so Robotech combined 2 series only related by genre (transforming piloted mecha) and prefix and 1 series only related by genre and miraculously the result was pretty decent.)

Sliding a release date back a week is no big deal. They usually do this when they can't guarantee that every retail (B&M) store will receive the title on time. This is especially true during the holiday season, where the shipping industry is very congested. After all, the last thing a store wants is to receive a product a day or two after the official release date.

You will still get the title early through Right Stuf though. Online retailers and distributors are the first ones to receive the title.

Media Blasters noted on their Facebook page that they are rearranging dates. Most likely because of their replicator. Replicators are very congested at the moment due to the holiday season.

Most companies only solicit their titles 90 days in advance. Any further than that and it gets the dreaded "coming soon" banner.

The only title that MB flat outright canceled is the Blu-ray version of Kite. They were told that they were getting high quality masters, but Japan sent them pretty crappy HD masters.

That's because season 1 was 24 episodes long, while season 2 is only 13 episodes (12 episodes and OVA).

I don't know about the OVA, but the normal TV show does have pantsu of Sora. Miu kind of hints at stuff from time to time but never really shows anything.

Re: Has anybody noticed? - 01/16/13 07:57 PM

I mean the cover art they used for this.
Sora's skirt is lifted up and I'm not sure if what you're seeing is a little bit of her panties, or some of her "booty" cheek like you can with Miu behind her. Looking at it closer... I think that's part of her skirt...

Yes I'm weird like that... blush

Re: Has anybody noticed? - 01/31/13 09:07 AM

Sentai and Funimation releases days are always about 2 weeks after they ship it to the retailers. Like all the B&M stores have Kamisama Dolls now are very soon. They don't put out the stock till the release day. RightStuf doesn't wait for the release date they just send it out right away. This is very common in all media. Blu-ray, DVD, Music, Books and Video Games.

To expand on this. Right Stuf is actually a distributor who sells to both wholesale buyers and individual anime fans. However, they treat both the same and that means anime buyers get the same perks as wholesale buyers get (ie receive the title a few weeks before release).

Note: This only applies to companies that just use release dates (Funimation, Sentai, Media Blasters, Nozomi, Discotek). Companies such as Sony, Disney and WB (includes Viz anime) use enforced "street dates" and that means the title will ship on the release date from those companies for the individual anime fans.

In the past certain B&M stores with the initials BB did the "put stiff out early" thing as well.
Boy was that cool when I found a title that was supposed to come out almost a month later...
BTW even if somehow we goof & put out a movie "early" the registers won't let you buy it.

On the Flip Side Kamisama Dolls Cover Art is very subdued for a 17+ Anime

I do love the Battlegirls Cover grin

A caution about this series: if you watch it on CR, you'll get the exact same subtitling on the DVD set, grammar and spelling mistakes included. It's one of the worst subtitling I've seen in a while, because it's inconsistent. In some cases, you'll read SoSo's name as SouSou, SoSo, or S&#333;S&#333;. It's irritating, but not to the point it shouldn't be considered for a purchase.

I still enjoyed the series even with the issues.

As for the topic of notices, I've been noticing more delays of releases by practically every R1 distributor. Makes me wonder if these are in-house issues or Japanese release issues. Hard to tell, but I have to admit they're getting annoying.

Re: Has anybody noticed? - 02/05/13 07:41 AM

I guess I didn't notice the grammatical issues with the subtitling on (Shin) Koihime Muso (Otome Tairan), but that was probably because I was too busy being mesmerized by Chohi's cuteness...nga. I actually had to stave myself off from getting the rerelease box set, considering it's simply a repackaging of the threee series boxes that I already own (I think).

Maybe the movies aren't included because they're only including the license rescued material formerly held by Bandai? Aniplex, as far as I know, has owned the rights to the movies from the beginning. The price difference between BD and DVD is beyond insane though. >.<

That Gurren Lagann BR set looks fantastic! I paid 75 for the limited edition singles dvd set. 140 is out of my price range for GL, don't think it's worth it to be honest, i would consider shelling out that money for the Durarara!! Blurays though...

However, i would kill for this... http://www.amazon.com/The-English-Audio-...he+big+o+bluray

Ridiculous price, not much extra wise, the design however looks awesome! A bluray release of The Big O over here in the states would be absolutely amazing!

You're welcome! Not every single one has a problem, but if you buy it, it's hit or miss from what i heard, i didn't want to take the chance of wasting $50, so just shelled out the extra for the singles. Plus it's one of my favorite artbox's ever! So i didn't mind it!

I haven't seen the show, but it being a sci-fi show, "La Grange" referring to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lagrangian_point is more likely...

@Gurren Lagann Blu-Ray complaints: it's the Japanese Blu-Ray set, so of course it has an absurd Japanese price...

Has anybody noticed... Shamanic Princess is now listed as "We'll Get It For You!" instead of "Preorder, Not Yet Shipping"? I'm very excited to see this anime, but now kiku's in limbo. I contacted RightStuf customer service regarding the change, but they have yet to receive word from Media Blasters (Anime Works?). I would like point out (yet again) that RightStuf's customer service is excellent. I've become quite the fan of their "Live Chat" feature. Talk about quick! Anyhoo... I'm going to continue to keep my item on preorder until further notice. I want to show Media Blasters (Anime Works?) my support. They carry some great titles, and I want them to continue to do so. I've been a little worried, considering the cover art never went up for Shamanic Princess. Wait a minute... the cover art still hasn't gone up for Juden-chan! Juden-chan is from Media Blasters (Anime Works?) too! Oh nooo! Be strong kiku, be strong. I have feeling that they're simply very busy with all of the upcoming releases that they have in the works. I hope so anyways. Maybe, if I order all of their Queen's Blade releases on Blu-ray to go with my DVD editions; they'll have the capital to get back on track. confused

Yea, I notice the same thing happens with Digital Manga and more importantly for me their Project H label. Every time I preorder their titles it always goes to "We'll Get It For You" for about a week then I get in a copy. They seem to do the same thing with Amazon as well. I believe they like you to buy from their store which charges full price plus shipping. I don't know why people buy from there.

That's a known fact. Some times it's easier for me to watch a show in small chunks (1-2 episodes) at a time, compared to others where I can watch several episodes in one sitting.

One thing I like doing it reading Chris' reviews at The Fandom Post. He has a tendency of reviewing the simulcasts and then later reviewing the Blu-ray version of the show (when available).

I remember reading his reviews for the Freezing simulcast and the episodes got mostly Cs. Yet, the Blu-ray set got a 'B-'. He even noted that watching the show all at once was much more enjoyable for him compared to watching it an episode a week.

I'm actually the exact same way with Soul Eater, i like it, it's a fun & silly show, but i can only watch it in 2 or 3 episode increments.

Back when I rented Soul Eater I usually watched one disc, and then waited on the next one.

BTW has Toonami got up to Excalibur yet?
It would be pretty funny reading the reactions to that from people who have never seen it.

I am kinda doing that a bit on GameFAQs by reading the reactions to Tenchi GXP.

I don't think so. They aired episode 8 last Saturday.

According to their schedule, episode 9 might be it. It's titled, "Legend of the Holy Sword - Kid and Black Star's Great Adventure? ".

I'm going to continue to keep my item on preorder until further notice. I want to show Media Blasters (Anime Works?) my support. They carry some great titles, and I want them to continue to do so. I've been a little worried, considering the cover art never went up for Shamanic Princess. Wait a minute... the cover art still hasn't gone up for Juden-chan! Juden-chan is from Media Blasters (Anime Works?) too! Oh nooo! Be strong kiku, be strong. I have feeling that they're simply very busy with all of the upcoming releases that they have in the works. I hope so anyways. Maybe, if I order all of their Queen's Blade releases on Blu-ray to go with my DVD editions; they'll have the capital to get back on track. confused
Speaking of Queen's Blade Blu-rays... I went and looked at another website who shall remain unnamed. Why is the season 2 Blu-ray being scalped? It's "temporarily out of stock" and the other sellers are charging well over $200.00 for it! WTF? So many questions Media Blasters. Maybe they intend to release a "Seasons 1 & 2" set like they did for the DVD, hence the unnavailability of more copies of the individual season sets.

It was noted in this thread that I made.

They are no longer supporting Blu-ray, because of a lack of sales. RACS has confirmed that season 2 of the Blu-ray is now OOP. Season 1 BD got another print run just before MB made the decision, that's why season 1 is still available on BD.

That's brutal for Blu-ray/Queen's Blade fans. I wonder if that will negatively affect Sentai's sales of the upcoming Season 3 Blu-ray version??? I'm glad I got my hands on the DVD's.

I wouldn't bet any money on it because it's a sure losing bet-QB fans ARE NOT going to be denied. In any event it's going to drive Sentai's sales of that title through the roof. And as they say-get it while the getting is good.

Doubt it! The BD version of Queen's Blade has been out for over 2 years now. There was plenty of opportunity for people to buy the BD version of the show.

Wouldn't you say that many newcomers to the series mught be a little put off though, considering that they can't get their hands on season 2 on Blu-ray? I would venture a guess that peoples' completist tendencies might prevent them from entering the series on Blu-ray, only having access to season 1 (for now) and season 3 (coming up). I know that I'm still pissed off about the Darker Than Black debacle. Where the h??? is the season 1 combo pack?

Looking at Amazon, the season 2 DVD set skyrocketed in sales after the BD version of season 2 was discontinued. The typical mindset for the average buyer is that "DVD is good enough". Most people aren't going to be deterred by the decision of discontinuing the Blu-ray.

Plus, Queen's Blade: Rebellion is treated as a stand alone series (new main cast). It's not season 3, it's series 2. To most people with OCD, it's not going to be much of an issue.

1.) Season 1 has always been in SD, while season 2 was in HD.

Queen's Blade Rebellion

For me, it can be about totally different people, I just hope that it fits in with whatís already been produced.
And that it has the same kind of thematic flow, I donít want it to be Queenís Blade in name only.
Iíd like for it to fit into the World thatís already been created.

*From the Item description page*
"Power corrupts, and when it appears that the once noble Queen Claudette's ways have turned to oppression and heretical persecution,
it's up to a new generation of warriors to step up to the plate armor to bear arms and bare their naked fury in open rebellion"


I hope they mean what Queen Claudette established, and not Claudette herself.
Iíd rally hate to see that.

**Looks at Wiki**

It is! There are a few returning characters from the first series, but they are pretty much side characters.

It still stands that this is being treated as a new series and not as a season 3.

Re: Has anybody noticed? - 04/17/13 11:55 PM

Ya know, it's too bad that the Blu-rays are oop. Normally I don't care, and get the DVD's because they're cheaper; but I've read a lot of reviews stating that the season 1 & 2 Queen's Blade Blu-rays are exceptional and really show how a Blu-ray can shine. C'est la vie. FWIW kiku's order of preference for anime media is as folows:

First Choice - DVD/Blu-ray combo (It's affordable; considering you get the best of both worlds, and you get two copies.)
Second Choice - DVD (It's the most affordable and between dirty spectacles, a first gen flatscreen, and poor eyesight; BD stands for "barely discernible" difference to kiku.)
Third Choice - Blu-ray (Usually when it's the only option.)

Re: Has anybody noticed? - 04/18/13 09:01 PM

My first choice-BLURAY only-second choice dvd (only if I have no other option). No third choice.

5th choice: Digital copy (HD)
6th choice: DVD

Re: Has anybody noticed? - 04/19/13 12:20 AM

I gotta agree with kiku. BD/DVD combo first, DVD only second and BD only third and only if it's the only option. BD has been around for years and yet there's nowhere near enough difference in quality to be worth so much more than DVD ( in my opinion). I also learned the hard way that 3D causes me to have migraines. So I'd rather not have to need medication to watch some gimmick version of anime. For that matter does 3D anime even exist?

Compare the different versions and prices.
It's downright silly not to get the 3D Bluray pack. (Granted, I'm referring to the coupon clipped prices).
& this is coming from someone that already owns the DVD release.

3D-BD, BD, DVD, CD, DC - $29.99

Re: Has anybody noticed? - 04/19/13 12:18 PM

There are some cases of BD being quite cheap, especially all the different combo pack styles; but one must be a smart shopper. It's easy to see that overall, Blu-ray is more expensive than DVD.

I myself, and most of the people I know have difficulty watching 3D for any length of time. Sure it's fun once in awhile, but I can (and will) most certainly do without. I have an especially difficult time with the new powered 3D glasses. It looks amazing, but I think that I would barf if I had a snack whilst watching something in that format. Once again, not for me; or most of the people I know.

That's because the disc production costs more for a BD. The authoring and encoding costs 3-6 times more (depending if it's single layer or dual layer) compared to a dual-layered DVD. And the mandatory material requirements for BD production (such as the anti-scratch hard coat) also isn't cheap.

Compared to the past, BD are getting cheaper. Heck, Walmart now has a Blu-ray bargain bin where the titles cost $7.99 each.

For me it's:

3rd choice: "free" files + buying DVD to reward the studios/production comittees

Since 1 and 2 don't seem to be available yet, for the time being I'm using the 3rd choice and most of those DVDs end up staying shrinkwrapped for many, many years...

Donít buy anything in the DVD-R format unless youíre sure you are going to keep it.
I bought the SONY release of ( for some reason it now says COLUMBIA, but it said Sony when I bought them )

Ultraviolet Code: 044
Viper's Creed
Kurozuka

They were all released in the DVD-R format.
Three times so far, they all ended up back in the fye isnít buying today pile.
( aka: the bags I brought them to the local fye store in ) grin

The only thing the store personal ever tell me is,
when they scanned them they didn't show up as Title's that are currently on the Buy Back list.

But after going on-line and reading the Buy Back Policy on the fye Website,
I see that any/all DVD-R format items are items that fye "Will Not Buy Back".

Ultraviolet Code: 044 and Viperís Creed was a good one time watch, I never really made it all the way through Kurozuka.

Oh wellÖ frown

To me that should only apply if there actually was a gap of at least 1 Japanese broadcast season between it and a next season, not if it's just the 2 xmas weeks and the fact that episode 13 is apparently flagged as a recap...
(so IMO a 2 cour, but 1 season series. Just dislike such marketing tweaks...)

Yeah, but Enya always takes a long time between albums. That's largely because she does everything on them; all the instruments and vocals are all her. She's a perfectionist and it shows in the quality of her work. But she'll never release anything with the amount of frequency of the average pop artist who only does lead vocals and maybe a little guitar work.

Date a Live is a Spring 2013 anime which is still being aired in Japan. I haven't been following it because it received horrid previews at ANN, but from what I've read, it sounds like a cheap ripoff of The World God Only Knows. Or maybe a cross between that and Infinite Stratos.

I actually just got done reading a few positive reviews of it at ANN... and I quite liked Infinite Stratos. Plus... Hermit. Kawaii! Apparently fearsome, but kawaii.

The only thing I know about the series is Team NINJA borrowed the main character for their Dead Or Alive Paradise PSP game. I just remember seeing it in Kiku's wish list postings.

Oh! Wow I didn't know that at all. Real shame they didn't use her for the bar scenes in DOA5's story then, if KoeiTecmo own's her.

News from Japan has no baring on our releases, inless it is a production studio shutting down. As that causes problems with licenses.

Japan can get thousands of seasons of an anime and it could very easily never see a North America release.

I'm happy that I preordered both Medaka Box and High School DxD now that I've seen the box art. It's good to know that they included at least one male character on each cover as I think a series has a better chance of succeeding if it has a universal appeal. That and it doesn't hurt to throw the female fan base a little eye candy now and then wink

I've actually been noticing quite an increase in bishies in anime as of late. Take Inu X Boku SS for example. It's touted as a loli anime, yet most of the buzz online is regarding Soshi. I for one, am glad that at least a modicum of your voice is being heard. Hooray for bishies for sevi. (and lolis for kiku)

I have both parts on preorder, i can not wait. I'm thinking of picking up Kids on the Slope as well, but i heard it's the worst Watanabe show. From what i've heard about Michiko & Hatchin, the show is absolutely amazing, especially with the character development, but that it still doesn't live up to Bebop or Champloo.

Re: Has anybody noticed? - 07/23/13 12:29 PM

I don't know, but I preordered it immediately upon seeing it available if I'm not mistaken. It's hard to believe that an item would sell out in a matter of hours.

Re: Has anybody noticed? - 07/23/13 12:52 PM

The same thing happened with the release of the dubbed version of Special A. The day it was suppose to come out, it changed to more arriving soon. IT did this because they didn't get their shipment in, a few days later they got it in.

I'm still waiting on a shipping conformation for Special A myself...

And I per-ordered and received the Anime "Spaceship Agga Ruter" that froze up.
the DVD went straight to more arriving soon after it became available ( sold out I guess )
However I was told that Iíd be sent a new disc when they got more in.

Now it says "No Longer Available for Purchase", I asked someone at Rightstuf ( whoís name I couldnít understand, it was muffled when he said it )
He said what he was looking at still shows more arriving in Aug, and "maybe" they did that
"No Longer Available for Purchase" so they could catch up on back orders when the new shipment came in ( or words to that effect )

But that seemed odd, if it said "more are arriving soon", I would still Order from you, but if it said "No Longer Available for Purchase" Iíd go somewhere else.
( why lose the Business by saying No Longer Available if you have more coming in )
It just seems odd that he told me that, more coming in Aug 5th., but it says "No Longer Available for Purchase"

Edit
I asked about and he said heíd heard nothing about a mass defect with this Title.
I thought that might explain the No Longer Available For Purchase

FWIW, Right Stuf de-listed every Kitty Media title that was out of stock today.

It looks like they are treating them the same way they treat Great Eastern products and manga. In other words, they will re-list the item when they get it back in stock and de-list it when it goes out of stock.

These products stay out of stock way too long. Some people are waiting up to 8 months to receive their copy. It's also not good business keeping your customers waiting that long.

Re: Has anybody noticed? - 08/02/13 11:26 AM

Has anyone else experienced something like this??

I have such a weak Eyeglass Prescription that wearing my Glasses is more of a nuance than NOT wearing them.
By that I mean most of My Life is spent in-between my Reading Glasses prescription and my Corrected Vision Prescription.

With the exception of some subtitling ( or other printed material ) on TV due to font size or color of the print.
I can watch TV without Glasses just fine, but now with the new Anime coming out Iíve found that I lose definition,
things seem to be in a soft focus or even blurred if I donít wear my Glasses.

Older Anime or newer-ish stuff drawn with less detail still seem just fine,
but the New high detail/high definition stuff has forced me to wear my Glasses when I watch it.

Itís really the only time I have to wear my Glasses, other than my reading Glasses which I have to use to read up close.

Many people I know (sometimes myself included) can't watch HD programming (television and/or games) for any length of time. It hurts their eyes and sometimes gives them a headache. This is in particular regard to any of them in the twilight of their years, many of whom use reading and prescription glasses.
Posted by: EricDent

Re: Has anybody noticed? - 08/02/13 11:46 AM

The Orgus thing we got was part of that longer show.
I would guess that somehow we couldn't get all of it?
So if that series does come over, it most likely would either be a sub-only release (not sure who they used in the dub) or maybe just re-release the old stuff.

This could be due to that rather complicated mess with the Macross stuff as well. You know something dealing with Harmony Gold, the creators of Macross, and the lack of anything Macross related (besides Macross 2, & Macross Plus) coming stateside.

grin Thanks T-Roy and I do feel your sorrow smirk
( I think all we Dyslexic's should be felt sorry for, so thanks again wink )

edit
Oh I have tried it, and have felt nothing, the words on the screen and the picture
on the screen might as well have been from two different shows.
Because I wouldnít of know the difference.

But Seriously, yes Iím going to cancel it, itís not what I had ordered.
It wasnít listed as Sub when I Ordered it.

Just like Iím going to return an Anime I received yesterday, it was listed as having an English Dub, but it turns out to not have one.
Heck, Even before I ordered it I e-mailed them a question to verify that it had an English Dub and got a reply saying it did.

The cover art went up right away with the preorder for Vividred Operation. Does anybody have any idea what the "Web Version Previews" are in the special features?
Posted by: Manhiem

Re: Has anybody noticed? - 09/16/13 10:05 AM

I would guess that there are two possibilities: one is the set of previews that were simulcast on Crunchyroll when the show was first streamsd. The second possibility is that there were some previews shown on the series' official web site.

I find it irritating that the sale price offered by Rightstuf is the projected MSRP that was listed in the pre-release article I read on one of the anime news websites: http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2013-09-14/aniplex-usa-picks-up-vividred-operation-oreshura That means that either Aniplex raised the price between the time the article was written and now, or that the anime news service was privy to the sale price that RS was going to be allowed to offer it at. :P

I suppose that the point is moot, though, since the search engine can't pick up the title anymore. It must have sold out more or less instantly. Never mind. See next post below.

Re: Has anybody noticed? - 09/16/13 10:59 AM

Don't use the search engine for new titles. It never works.

They are both still up, just go to New/Changed Items and they are at the top.

I'll solve this riddle for you.

As I pointed out to kiku in the anime news topic. If you go to Aniplex Of America's official site and click on the "buy now" buttons on the series pages it will send you to the RightStuf item page for that title. This also happens if you go to Sentai Filmworks site as well. This is why when both companies release press release info with prices you will get the high retail price. Which lets be real no one in their right mind buys anime at that price. You will also see a cheaper "sale" price, which that price is always the price that RightStuf will sale the item at.

So in the future when ANN or any other anime news site lists a new Aniplex Of America title the cheaper price they list aka "sale" price will be the RightStuf price. In less AOA and RightStuf are no longer working partners.

Sometimes it's staggering, to think about how much of my money that Funi gets. They tend to hit all the right notes. More often than not they release titles my way: uncensored, DVD/Blu-ray Combo, sub & dub, with extras, with available Limited Edition. Now they are testing the waters of sub only niche titles. Funimation is pure win!

A lot of anime/manga companies that have had trouble in the past were bad about updating their webpage. I remember Tokyopop was horrible with their site. They would go months at a time with nothing updating but the fan pages.
Posted by: kiku

Re: Has anybody noticed? - 10/17/13 04:02 PM

I find that most Anime Companies are focused on Facebook/Twitter for customer interface. Furthermore; it seems that the more attention that they focus on said social networks, the less attention they afford to their website. That's why I'm so very thankful for Anime Today and RightStuf's excellent customer service team. Heck, RightStufSpecialsMinion has even been at the forum lately. That's awesome! I haven't heard from The Dark Lord or Christy in quite some time though. Richard Harms was in here a bit ago though.

Re: Has anybody noticed? - 10/17/13 04:14 PM

I've found the only anime company that really puts a lot into their website is FUNimation and I think that largely has to do with them doing their own streaming on it. Most of the other companies just use their website to post license announcements it seems. FUNimation is also very active on Twitter, Facebook and Youtube and I believe they are quite active on Tumblr as well, but I only follow manga companies on there.

It's a no-braining on the reason why. Most anime companies have to contract a web designer to update their website, which can easily cost $100+ per update. Social Media sites on the other hand don't charge them anything. Not to mention, most people follow social media sites over company websites.

The only major anime companies that keep their websites up to date are Funimation and Right Stuf. Right Stuf has to since they are also a retailer, while Funimation is offering a streaming service. Both companies have web designers on their payroll, so it isn't costing them anything extra to maintain their websites.

To Joel's point a simple link and text page for a press release can be done by anybody and takes very little skill. So the anime company can really just have anyone do that. To add images and other such stuff isn't as easy and the company would need someone that knows what they are doing.

It's probably because of Daylight Savings time. We get an extra hour tonight and the schedule wasn't finalized for that extra hour. Even my satellite box is giving me a wonky schedule.

Adult Swim's schedule seems to list it though. It appears that the "fall back" hour (the second 1:00am) will have Sword Art Online, while the new 2:00am and 2:30am (they call it 2:45 and 2:52) will air something special.

Cool, my Pre-Order of Gatchaman TV + OVA DVD Complete Collection has changed to Processing. smile
Iím glad Iím only paying $70.19 for it, the current price would be to much to pay, even with a discount.
( but, it is a lot of Anime you're getting for the money )

Yes, but when my guests are here for my Movie Nights, some like to peruse my Blu-ray collection - and when they see a newly-loaded shelf full of anime, they're going to be pulling them out to look at them, I'm sure! I already have DxD, Sekirei, RIN, and Elfin Lied on the shelf - I may just have to start a special ecchi/fanservice shelf inside my walk-in basement closet, where those kind of anime can remain unseen - my guests are a mixed crowd and mostly over-50, so I don't want anyone having a heart attack, lol!

So I Can't Play H is about death, so it would be a fitting choice. Death by anime fanservice.

Doesn't matter to me! Aesthetica of a Rogue Hero was a day 1 buy for me! Looks like an awesome show, & I've heard great things. A fan service show that has an actual plot and is unique sounds good to me.

Plus dat Artbox looks gorgeous...I'm a sucker for a nice artbox smirk

Has anyone figured out what the status "order has been received" actually means on an individual item in your order? I ordered a Blu copy of Heroic Age (35 left on counter) and Sword of the Stranger (6 left on counter) a few days ago; SotS is now "Reserved for your Order", but Heroic Age just says "Order has been Received"... if they had 35 in stock on the counter, there shouldn't really be any delay in adding it to my order, should there be? confused

It pretty much means that the title is Reserved For Your Order, but they want to double check before saying it. It's very common with newly placed orders.

Re: Has anybody noticed? - 11/19/13 05:00 PM

In the Order Status/Account Section thereís been a change with the Font Size with part of the info,
The Date Ordered Section ( left side of the screen ) all that info is now in Bigger Print.

The Items In The Order and View Order/Archive Order seem the same.
BUT if you click on View Order than, when the page changes to that page than POW in your face with everything in Big Font.

Is everyone seeing this or is it just me ? confused

Fast becoming a Range Murata fan, due to loving Shangri-La and Last Exile; I've dveloped a possible interest in Blue Submarine No. 6. Has anybody noticed that there are differences between the already available new release of the DVD and the upcoming January release of the Blu-ray? I would have jumped on the DVD already, if I hadn't noticed that certain additional special features seem to be only available on the Blu-ray. That's a dirty trick. Further exasperating my frustration is that some of said special features are listed as To Be Announced. Grrr.
Posted by: EricDent

Re: Has anybody noticed? - 12/13/13 02:54 AM

Yeah, that's becoming pretty common now.
Basically saying "let's make everybody switch to Blu-Ray by not putting anything cool on DVD".
Especially special features.

Personally I don't usually bother with special features.

With anime they usually fall into these categories:

Clean Open/Close songs (basically the opening/ending songs without credits)
Trailers (from whatever company put it out)
Commentary (sometimes from the Japanese side, but mostly the dub people)
Maybe interviews with creators/voice actors (again more focus on dub sometimes)
Random events with the cast (Japanese): for example eX Driver had the voice actresses go & actually race in go carts.

I hear you there Kiku.
And those folks at the companies know it too.
That's why they've been doing sneaky things like sticking all the awesome "new" animations on the Blu's, to get ya to buy'em.
Course, it doesn't help that I'm a sucker for extras, (like art cards and whatnot) so I eat it up like the shameless Fujoshi that I am.

That's what I meant - I'm saying I could live without DVDs. I hadn't bought a single commercial DVD in the last 5-6 years - until I started an anime collection and had to buy some titles that are DVD-only... It was a bit painful submitting to that harsh reality, lol...

Re: Has anybody noticed? - 12/14/13 09:42 AM

I still buy a lot of DVD only releases because I fear that a bunch of licenses won't get BD versions. I still wonder to this day what I missed out on VHS anime that never made the transition to DVD. So much lost to the ether...
Posted by: t-Roy

Re: Has anybody noticed? - 12/14/13 09:48 AM

yeah, well that's just it - the majority of titles older than 4 or 5 years since release may never see a BD release, other than some of the more popular titles... so if you want any of them, you have to get the DVDs. The biggest issue is that when watching anime on my theater room's projection screen, it is real easy to tell the difference between DVD and BD at a 120" screen size... eek

I have no problem with the limited edition boxes, the only complaints I really hear are that they take up too much shelf space, I don't mind that either though, because the presentation with the LE boxes are usually pretty slick (there are a few I haven't liked)

For those that are more concerned with shelf space, there's almost always a regular edition available that is slimmer.

I own only 3 Funi chipboards - Future Diary, Fam the Silver Wing, and Michiko & Hatchin - Future Diary and Fam boxes are fine, but I noticed the Michiko box is definitely off - the back panel is a bit taller than the front panel, so when you look at the opening side of the box, the top and bottom panels slope outward about a 1/16", so the right side of the opening is taller then the left. It's not really that noticeable though, and in actuality it does allow you to put the Part 2 case inside the chip box with the slipcover still on, and still be able to slide out easily. But, they do evidently have a manufacturing problem going on somewhere along the line, because other people in other forums have mentioned this same issue as well... smirk

Man, the Cart on this site really sucks. This is the only dang retail site I've ever been on online where you loose everything in your active cart when you leave the site, or sometimes even browse to other pages and come back, except for items in the Save for Later section. Every other store site also remembers your active cart selections on your PC so you can come back days later and add more items to the cart and/or purchase them then. Every site but this one.

I need to keep items ready for purchase in my cart separate from my Save for Later selections, because I always keep a slew of items in Save for Later as a wish list. I had about 8 bluray and DVD series in my active cart ready for purchase and lost them all 3 different times now, and I'm not even sure what all of them were anymore. Bite it, I'm not searching for all of them again. You're going to end up losing a lot of sales from me, Rightstuf, just because of a poorly designed cart.

You totally missed the point of what I said in my post - I need to keep the Items I am ready to purchase separate from the "Save for Later" section, because I usually keep 30-40 "wish-list" items in my Save for Later section. I want to put stuff into the active section of the cart, separate from my "wish-list" items, leave the site, and still have the same items there the next time I come back - because I'm always adding and removing titles from the active cart over the course of multiple days before I actually submit a purchase. I can do this on any other site's Shopping Cart except this one. Dropping the items back into the Save for Later section everytime I leave the site just gets them lost in the crowd, and is a PITA.

Has anybody noticed that the release date for Ladies Versus Butlers has been chnged from February 25th to "Coming Soon, Date To Be Determined"? I wonder if this bodes well for kikuÖ or if it is a dark omen of great portent from Media Blasters/Anime Works? I certainly hope that it means that it might get released earlier than February 25th. I shudder to think that Ladies Versus Butlers might fall into the same limbo that Ikki Tousen Great Guardians did for 2 to 3 years.

I can do this on any other site's Shopping Cart except this one. Dropping the items back into the Save for Later section everytime I leave the site just gets them lost in the crowd, and is a PITA.


That would mean RightStuf's cart would need to set up cookies into your browser, that is how other shops can do that. I personally think multiple days holding an item in your active cart is too long. More so with an anime site like this, where you have known cases of people sitting on items even more so when they have a counter on them. I believe you yourself felt the pain of this issue with the GWLTT Blu-rays around the start of the Black Friday/12+ Days sales. Do you want stuff like that happening even more often, cause what do you think will happen when RightStuf puts up an OOP item? Everyone will jump on it and hold it in their carts till they can/want to buy it making it even harder to pick up such items in less you are always at your computer ready to pounce on items.

I think the much better solution is for RightStuf to set up a real wishlist that is not connected to your cart. This would of course allow you to share your wishlist with people like you can with other wish lists. Then just use the "save for later" feature as a longer version of the active cart. To where you can still set up items you want to buy, but you are not sitting on them so anyone that can/wants to buy an item with a counter can do so.

Well if they're actually reserving items from stock that you put into your cart, then that's just stupid - nothing should be reserved until you actually place an order.

But if this is really the case, then that wish list thing you suggested would be a great idea... I just really need to have two separate places to keep my pending sales and my pending wish list selections in...

I shudder to think that Ladies Versus Butlers might fall into the same limbo that Ikki Tousen Great Guardians did for 2 to 3 years.


Oh damn-I was really looking foreward to it.

For the record, that's exactly what happened in the past when the carts wouldn't time out until 3 days later. The Ebay scalpers were really taking advantage of it.

Unfortunately, that's how it works. Right Stuf's back end system takes a whole day to update. If they did what you said, then there will be a lot of customers getting cancellation notices, because they didn't have enough of the item to fulfill their orders. This would be a nightmare on OOP items and this Christmas Sale.

FWIW, many online stores do the same thing when it comes to stock counters (including Amazon).

I noticed the ADV logo on my Elfen Lied Bluray. So I popped in the disc and lo and behold the ADV spash screen is there right on my TV. Is ADV a thing again or just a name like when Infogrames became Atari?

It's just a label these days. AEsir Holdings now owns the ADV name.

The thing with Elfen Lied (and Kino's Journey) is that ADV co-produced the title. When a US anime company co-produces a title, they usually own the US rights to the title permanently. This is only true as long as the company is still alive (at least in name). This is the reason why the ADV label is still being used for the title.

Further exasperating my frustration is that some of said special features are listed as To Be Announced. Grrr.
They are both listed at Discotek now, and the special features are identical.

This news that was just posted up on Right Stuf's site is very interesting. It's an upgrade program on five Sentai titles that are getting re-released with a dub.

I know that three of them (Maria Holic season 1, Nyankoi and Special A) were announced that they were getting a dub. But this is the first time hearing that Maria Holic Alive (season 2) and Mayo Chiki are also getting a dub.

Nice leak you got there Right Stuf.

Sentai's twitter posted the link and shortly afterwards said, yes we read that correct Mayo Chiki is getting a dub in the future.

I remember always seeing the Subbed copy of Blue Drop at fye when I went there to sell my unwanted DVD's.
I would always pick it up and read the synopsis on the back cover, then put it back on the shelf.

And I would wish they would come out with a Dubbed Version,
of course when they did I placed it on pre-order right away and when I finally got it I watched it right away and was soooo happy Ö.

I've watched it twice since then

Lagrange - The Flower of Rin-ne - DVD Set 2(Hyb)

For an oh so brief moment I saw this "Lagrange - The Flower of Rin-ne - DVD Set 2 for $7.99."
So I cancelled my existing Order of it and re-ordered it for $7.99.

Now I see it's back up to $28.99 ( well it has been since right after ordering it )
I don't know if it was an error or not but Rightstuf is still honoring it ....
I Love Rightstuf grin

Hmm that's weird, but if the Series ends up being on 2 discís and all the BS extraís ( BS since they are not in English ) are on the 3rd than Iím good.
I donít care for the extraís I see listed, so that 3rd disc ( if this is the case ) can go in the Garage while the other 2 go in a 14 disc Anime Collection case.

But I have time to think about it, I do believe it was seeing 2 disc on the Subbed Copy front cover that caused me to switch from buying the bluray to the DVD ( thinking it would also be 2 disc )
Hmm ( again ) darn it, if I only knew if the 3rd disc was just those Subbed extra's or not frown .....

I don't know if I'd be so quick to discredit the extras on MM! They were my favorite part. BTW I now see that my post linking to Blue Drop (Hyb) was totally pointless, considering that you noted purchasing it in the previous post. I was a little on the quick to help. My bad B Dub.

Huge anime section on TV Tropes? - 01/13/14 08:08 PM

Has anyone ever seen/discovered the anime section on tvtropes.org? Wow, is it ever an interesting site, and it's huge - you can easily get lost in there for hours on end! The site has individual pages dedicated to pretty much every anime and anime genre out there, up through Spring 2014. The site is like a huge Wiki, but with a twist - on the page for each anime title, there is a long list of "tropes" that the anime either features or is guilty of, with examples. The spoilers are of the type you have to highlight to see the text inside. Some are funny, some revealing, some thoughtful, some provoking... and each trope itself has a link to it's own definition page which can be a very interesting read in itself. There is a tremendous wealth of information on anime in this site, definitely give it a try and see if you don't agree with me! Just try not to get lost in there for more than a few hours at a time, lol... cool

I would assume those would follow, sometime soon... At least Forte, anyway. I have purchased none of them yet, but I've watched Part 1 and partway into Forte on Netflix. I may consider buying it at some point, depending on how it ends.... It's right on the borderline of being too cutesy for me, but at least the comedy isn't insane...

It's most likely a combination with IE and Right Stuf's server.

My Main Page Att.Net keeps showing me that I have 1 New Mail.
And it doesn't matter if it really has 20 new e-mails in it or if the In Box is empty,
it still shows on my Att.Net Home Page as 1New Mail.

I've spent way too many hours on the phone with so called techs and now the Real techs are supposed to be working on it.
It's been over 2 weeks since I first noticed it.....

And it's still going on, .....

I use Safari on the iPhone, and never have any problems.
Though sometimes at work/parents house I use either IE/Firefox.
Of course those do delete the "cookies" when I close the browsers.

For those that don't follow RightStuf's Social Media pages. Today they are having problems with their systems. So no orders going out today and no changes to the order status page. Which makes me a little sad as today was partial shipment day, guess I will have to wait longer now for Dragonar Academy.

Hopefully as soon as they get this fixed, they will send out partial shipments ans not wait until the next partial shipment day.

I tweeted RightStuf about this and from their response I get the feeling that partial shipments will be done as soon as the system can get going again just like normal in stock orders.

After getting a new job last August, I had to make some sacrifices to be able to continue tackling my hobbies (one is watching and collecting anime BDs/DVDs).

The first thing that went was forum hopping. I only go to three forums now and I usually just lurk for the most part.

FUNimation hasn't made an official announcement as of now, but someone did contact right stuff and here's what they had to say:

Unfortunately the manufacturer informed us yesterday that they decided to not
solicit these items as now the release date is to be determined. It was
something that just happened so they have not made the public announcement yet.
I am sure we will post something as well as funimation regarding this matter at

Same here, I'm just going to let mine stay in Pre-Order and see what happens.

In fact the only reason I'm able to get to it's Item Description Page is because I have it in Pre-Order.

It wasn't exactly the back cover descriptionÖ it was that little piece of paper that's included with LEs. It may however be on the standard release's back cover. I think that's what that little piece of paper is. Irregardless, I agree with you B dub. My distaste for censorship is one of the biggest reasons why I choose solid media.

Well, at least it's not censored the whole way through, ala Sankarea, it's just one (two?) instance, and it's not something I would actually want to see anyway... but still, if we're paying the money for the media, then it shouldn't be censored, period.

Haganai: NEXT LE box is another one of those "special" Funi sloped editions - the back panel is slightly taller than the front panel, so the top and/or the bottom panels are sloped. Mine was enough it wouldn't stand up on it's own without physically flexing the box to level out the bottom, which then makes the top sloped:

My copy is lopsided enough that the case on the left is too tight and has to be forced in, the right side slides in fine. I have noticed that many of these boxes are sloppily thrown together. And yet I still buy them. Oh well.

Re: Has anybody noticed? - 06/02/14 09:11 AM

I really find that hard to believe, when 7 out of 10 of my Funi boxes are sloped to some degree. Many are slight enough that it doesn't matter, but when you look at the opening side of the box, you can definitely see they are not square. I'm not trying to make a mountain out of a molehill though - it's just an observation. Here's a photo of 5 of my Funi boxes, side by side... The slope of the M&H, Fujiko Mine, and Haganai bottoms are enough that the boxes will tip over when stood up on a flat surface, unless you flex the box diagonally to straighten the bottom some. Okami-san and Princess Jellyfish are not nearly as bad, and the slope on their boxes are somewhat harder to see in the photo. I believe they are not cutting the rear panel short enough to allow for the thickness of the bottom panel, which the rear panel sits on top of. The rear panel should actually be made shorter than the front panel by the thickness of the bottom cardboard, in order to make the front and back the same height; I don't think they are doing this. Then, when the cardboard seam between the bottom and rear panel is joined together during assembly, the tightness of that seam before the top surface paper wrap is applied to the box determines how much of a slope the box gets.

My Blu-ray disc 1 has two half-inch long, comet-shaped scratches on it from scraping against the hub for the lower disc underneath. I always disliked those overlapping disc cases... Guess I'll be calling tomorrow...

I checked my copy as soon as I saw the message about it over at ANN. No scratches of any kind on either the DVDs or BD discs. So I guess I lucked out in that regard.

My Blu-ray disc 1 fell out of its holder and has a couple of scratches on it. It doesn't look like it will cause any problems, but I'm going to make sure as soon as I finish Ghost Stories

I really don't know all the in's and out's of all the Anime Sites, etc....
I know Rightstuf, ANN, and I Hit-n-Miss with Google Searches, etc ....

So if anyone gets any info on what the Disc count and or Packaging Sizing of the upcoming
Moribito: Guardian of the Spirit Blu-ray Complete Series (Hyb)
or
Moribito: Guardian of the Spirit DVD Complete Series (Hyb)

I'd love to hear it, if it's going to be fewer Disc's and smaller ( Thinner ) Packaging,
than I'd be intrested in getting it.

Well, it isn't going to be released as a Limited Edition as they first had it listed, and it's strictly either a Blu-ray or DVD edition, no combo pack - so it'll probably just be a standard-sized amaray or DVD case for two discs, I would guess.

EDIT: Here, Amazon has pics for both the blu-ray and the DVD up now... As I figured, both are 2-disc standard cases.

Excellent !!!
Oh that's Bluray.com ( I do see the Amazon link though )
Amazon was one of the places I looked at the other day, along with other places.
When I was looking for a Cover Picture and Disc Count info, but it hadn't been listed yet I guess.
But yeah now I see it's got the Pic and info.

So yeah I guess I'll be Per-Ordering ( from Rightstuf I'm hoping )
it as soon as I can add something to it to get the Free Shipping.
Oh Hey Rightstuf you need to checkout Amazons pricing of it.

Hint Hint, I sure wish I could use my Got Anime Discount for this Purchase grin

Ooops! sorry, I accidentally linked to it through Blu-ray.com (their site is basically tied to Amazon), since I post heavily in the anime forum there - I had all but 10,000 posts over in their Home Theater and Anime forums (I was like a kiku over there, lol!), but then I recently closed that account and started a new user account, so I'm back down to hardly any posts right now, lol...

And yeah, unfortunately, the Got Anime discount from RS is about worthless for pre-orders and new releases, hardly ever applies to those, unless there is a big manufacturer's sale during the pre-order time that activates the discount - like Attack on Titan had... and then you have to contact RS via phone or chat to actually get the dang discount taken off, it's not automatic - what a pain in the a$$. And, of course it's no good for most stuff listed in the daily or weekly sales, or the Bargain Bin. Yeah, I've made out OK on the GA discounts I've gotten this year, but they sure are few and far between, considering how much anime I buy from them... smirk

About once a week I got through my Orders and if there's a lower price on something I've got on Order
I call Rightstuf to make sure I'm getting the current lowest price.
It's saved me tons of money, I Love Rightstuf !

Re: Has anybody noticed? - 06/15/14 06:34 PM

I have saved a lot with my got anime discount. I always wait until the studio sales to get the best price, then I make several orders based on release dates. My backlog is so long that waiting for the sales is no big deal.

All I gotta say is that if this new release is only 2 blurays that'd mean there'd be 13 episodes on each one-no bloody way!! I'm happy with my current bluray set of 4 discs with 6 episodes on each-higher bitrate=better video. And all that crap about it having deinterlacing artifacts and problems with the audio is total b******t.

You are mistaken. Initial preorder price is weekly special price which doesn't let you add your Got Anime like a studio sale.

Best prices on RightStuf is studio plus GA discount. Now like T-roy said that normally means either not ordering right away or calling RightStuf for a price match on new sales. It would be great if they would do price matches for you, but I expect that has more to do with their source code for the store then not wanting to give us the best discount.

Oh, don't get me wrong, I love Rightstuf too - All I'm saying is that so much of my stuff I order is preorder items, or items already on sale, that the Got Anime discount almost never applies. I very seldom buy anything at a "regular" price. I've probably ordered 70-80 titles from Rightstuf in the past year, and the Got Anime discount applied to maybe 5 of those titles. Blu-rays especially seldom seem to be eligible... So yeah, after making up the $10 membership fee, I probably saved about $15 or $20 this past year, on about $5,000 of purchases - a whopping 0.4% savings... Ka-me Ha-Me HA! crazy

Every time I check my existing preorders, when a relevant studio sale comes up; the price in my order is always the same as the studio sale. I'm pretty sure that it's either automatically adjusted to match the studio sale, or as I mentioned earlier; the original preorder price is the lowest to begin with, or both. Then again, I could be wrong.

Re: Has anybody noticed? - 06/16/14 02:46 PM

Speak of the Devil - a Section 23 Sale is up now at Rightstuf, so my From the New World Part 2 I have on pre-order is now active for a Got Anime discount - going to call up RS right now...

OK, so I just saved $4.20 on From the New World Part 2, and I also made sure I have active GA discounts on Deadman Wonderland ($2.10) and Code:Breaker ($4.20) from the Funi sale a few weeks ago... so that's another $10.50 in pending savings. cool

Yeah, I just got off the phone with Rightstuf, I had a few things on Order that had a price drop.
And a few that I could now apply my GotAnime to.

And part 2 is coming up in September.

But I've not heard anything about when Space Dandy might be coming out.

Does anyone have any News on Space Dandy !?

You'll be waiting for awhile. The show hasn't released out on video in Japan yet and those are released out in singles. Usually there is a lead time between the Japanese video release and the US video release. In other words, don't expect this series to release out on video until next year.

Another thing to look forward to is that Toonami is airing the broadcast version of the show. The video version will have new footage and perhaps some of it will be more raunchier than what we've seen on TV.

Anybody noticed that the Sailor Moon set is listed as episodes 1-23, but only a 320 min runtime? I assume the number of episodes are correct and the runtime should be closer to 550 min (full season 1 is listed as 46 episodes @ 24min ea. )

They updated the listing, 510min

There are some series that you should check out despite them being mecha... Big O (very limited mecha), Code Geass (great story but a lot of mecha), and Mars Daybreak (they use their mecha in a very unique way) are three I can think of off the top of my head.

eh, I'm not a total mecha hater - Loved Knights of Sidonia and will definitely buy it if/when it comes out on Blu-ray. And I do also own Heroic Age, and was brave (stupid?) enough to blind-buy Eureka Seven - but supposedly only for the romance parts, lol... wink

I also have some "minor" mecha titles like Flag, Appleseed, Burst Angel, and Bubblegum Crisis Tokyo 2040...

Well, a couple guys on another anime forum have reported that Aniplex/Rightstuf has cancelled their pre-orders for Valvrave the Liberator, so looks like some issue or delay is going on there... better check your email if anyone pre-ordered it.

EDIT: Rightstuf just let them know it was only a computer glitch, and they are reinstating their orders. False alarm.

Re: Has anybody noticed? - 07/09/14 02:09 PM

Just to chime in on the mech series commentary...

I am not a raging fan-nerd of any of them other than Big O. That is one of my favorite series. It's got a little of that Bruce Wayne/Batman/James Bond vibe and that is cool. Convoluted story and obtuse dialog at times, but I just loved that dang show.

That said, the collector in me will still motivate me to buy other mech shows and I have quite a few.

That only one that really overwhelms me to the point I hesitate to buy is Gundam. I wouldn't even know where to begin since there is so much. I have bought a couple of the movies, but that is it.

I've got Big O, but I've still not been in the mood to watch it.
I saw it sooooo much on Adult Swim that I'm still "good to go" and not ready for a re-watch yet.
But I will sometime this year I think.....

That said, the collector in me will still motivate me to buy other mech shows and I have quite a few.

That only one that really overwhelms me to the point I hesitate to buy is Gundam. I wouldn't even know where to begin since there is so much. I have bought a couple of the movies, but that is it.

I've got Big O, but I've still not been in the mood to watch it.
I saw it sooooo much on Adult Swim that I'm still "good to go" and not ready for a re-watch yet.
But I will sometime this year I think.....


I love Big O, it's one of my all time favorites! I've watched my copy twice so far. I'm thinking of rewatching it when I catch up on my backlog.

A little off topic, but If I could choose any anime that'd I'd like another season to made, it'd be Big O (or maybe Full Metal Panic! season 4)

Not really big into Mecha either, but these were great shows IMO:

Gun X Sword
Dai Guard
Code Geass
The Third: The Girl With The Blue Eye
SDF Macross, Macross 2, & Macross Plus

Linebarrels of Iron was amusing (though at first it was rather annoying)

In light of watching Ranma 1/2 for the first time, I noticed that Ranma's girl voice is different after the first disc. Does an actor being recast ever bother anyone? I understand if you're numerous seasons in and you have to recast (like Dameon Clarke's character in Case Closed.) But if you're only 6 or so episodes in, why not just go back and redub it before release?

An interesting recasting tidbit for fans of the English dub of Eureka SevenÖ Yuri Lowenthal was the original choice to play Renton and had recorded 13 episodes of the series before being recast, this time with Johnny Yong Bosch as the leas. If you listen closely to episode 7, at the tail end of the episode when Holland is watching the tape of Renton being hazed, you can hear what Yuri would have sounded like in the role. He actually sounds pretty damn good as Renton.

Also, I'll second Eric's recommendation of Gun X Sword, a truly underrated gem. I also still have to watch The Third: The Girl With the Blue Eye, I've heard good things.

Well, Ranma's not for me, and Eureka Seven probably isn't either, but since I bought both Parts 1&2 when they were on sale, I'll end up watching E7 at some point. I don't know anything about those last two, will have to preview some of them online.

Be aware that there is one episode where Honoka is "Off Model", which is Animation speak for
"she doesn't look right".
I can't recall which episode it is off hand, but you will know it when you see it.

Congrats on your going over 2,000 posts. I'll be getting there sooner or later. Was technically on here for a year before I started posting more regularly. [And don't worry about "wearing out your welcome". Not gonna happen grin ]

As for Eureka Seven, I tried watching, but I never saw this so called epic love story. Just Renton getting all moony-eyed puppy love over Eureka. And her mainly ignoring him and looking the other way while the other crew members beat the crap out of him for daring to tarnish the precious flower that is 'Reka with his dirty eyes. If that's supposed to be romantic I don't see it.

Well, I'm sure you've noticed I don't go anywhere near the posts/converasations in the forum for all those cutesy moe fanservicey titles - and that's a pretty large portion of the posts in here, haha! laugh I almost never post replies to those (unless I'm just trolling, lol! wink )

eh, I may get 5 or 6 posts in here a day, just commenting mostly on stuff I am somewhat familiar with... so that's definitely not a lot. But I do usually learn a lot of stuff about different anime that way!

Wait - let's double-check to see if I get my math right... 11 months = 335 days, 2000 posts / 335 days = 5.97 posts per day - ah, right on! wink grin

yep, same here - I had just a few shy of 10,000 posts over in the other forum under my old FREYMAX userid, in just 3 1/2 years time, before I locked the account and started the new GWG one I'm using now.

It doesn't matter to me the much. I'd prefer the same actor, but it just may not be possible sometimes. In the case of Ranma, I prefer Sarah Strange but I have no problem with the job Richard Ian Cox did. It's tough following someone elses work like that, and not everyone would have the courage to do so.
