Re: christmas shopping - 11/11/12 09:16 AM

Many of us will be ordering from RightStuf in December because RS usually has a massive "12 Days of Christmas" sale. I won't be able to afford it this year because of all the preorders I have that are coming out that month (Shana, Index, and Bleach). The people who do shop that sale will probably wait to see what is on sale before deciding what they will order.

When does the massive sale usually start?

My wife normally gets me a $50 RightStuf gift card.
And my Mom is hit or miss about doing the same.
( sometimes she does, sometimes she doesnít )

Usually at the beginning of december.
Sadly I'm in the same boat as Manhiem.
All the pre-orders I've made kinda make it hard for me to make any purchases for this years sale.
(but I will try to though)
I love you Right Stuf!
I'm sorry! cry
(but like I said... I'll still try! )

Oh wow i didnt know there was going to be a sale. Does this usually include a percentage off your order, or sales on only certain items? I do have much i want to order in the next few weeks but it may be worth waiting

The sale only covers certain items, but by the time Day 12 rolls around, there are usually a lot of items on sale.

The first part (Black Friday/Cyber Monday) of the sale should launch either this Thursday, next Monday or next Wednesday at the latest.

This sale gives you a list of about 15-20 deals. All titles from this sale are usually at 60% off the retail price. That's 20% off more than a typical studio sale.

Once that sale ends, the 12+ Days Sale will commence (usually at the end of November). Each day for the next 12 days, Right Stuf will list a bunch of deals (about 5 sets/bundles). On the 13th day, a "Bundle of Joy" is released (another huge list of items).

All items from this sale are also at 60% off the retail price if not higher.

Last year, I bought 6 DVD sets between the two sales. I'll list the retail price and the price I payed for.

Angel Beats - MSRP $59.99; Sale Price $23.99
Night Raid 1941- MSRP $59.99; Sale Price $23.99
Cannan - MSRP $59.99; Sale Price $23.99
Darker Than Black: Season 1 - MSRP $49.99; Sale Price $19.99
Birdy The Mighty part 1: MSRP $59.99; Sale Price $15.99
Birdy The Mighty part 2: MSRP $59.99; Sale Price $15.99

This year I'm planning to take full advantage of the sale and buy much more.

I edited my post a few times after you made this post. Please re-read it, because I have given more details on the sale.

Also, Shawne and the WS Minion have been taunting about the sale on the Weekly Specials post. It looks like this year's sale is going to be a dozy.

Re: christmas shopping - 11/11/12 01:45 PM

I'm excited for the sales. It is kind of crazy that they are already so close to coming. I have a few preorders hitting me in December, but it shouldn't be too bad.

Posted by: EricDent

Re: christmas shopping - 11/12/12 02:34 AM

Last year I got this stuff at about $50.
Some of it was part of the sale, while others were in the bargain bin.

1 of Madlax DVD Complete Collection (Hyb) (Thinpak)
1 of NaNa 7 of 7 DVD 1 (Hyb): The Luckiest Number
1 of NaNa 7 of 7 DVD 2 (Hyb): A Test of Love
1 of NaNa 7 of 7 DVD 3 (Hyb): Greatest American Heroes
1 of NaNa 7 of 7 DVD 4 (Hyb): Heartbreak by the Numbers
1 of NaNa 7 of 7 DVD 5 (Hyb): Eight is Enough
1 of NaNa 7 of 7 DVD 6 (Hyb): Final Countdown
1 of Nanaka 6/17 DVD Complete Collection (Hyb)
1 of Shadow Skill TV DVD Complete Collection (Hyb)
1 of Sister Princess DVD Box Set (Thinpak)

I also hit up another sites sale, (hint it's initials are DD) for about $25.
However due to really crappy customer service from that site, I will most likely just order here (as well as maybe the "A" site, due to getting at least one gift card from them every year).

Not really sure what I am looking for, but if something jumps out with a good price then I will grab it.

They started it up a little earlier this year and there are "3 waves", that means we will be seeing two more of these lists before the sale ends.

It looks like the minimum this year is going to be 50% off (Funimation being stingy this year).

Now I see why the Specials Minion said "Holy Cheese" in the Weekly Specials post about this subject.

They should continue into each other, but before warned that some items have counters and may not last until the end of the sale.

The next list will be up most likely on Thursday, while the last list will be up most likely next Monday or Wednesday.

These holiday sales are mostly on sets, bundles and single releases (movies/OVAs) on DVDs and Blu-ray. There have been a few manga bundles in the past, but I have yet to see other merchandise included in these sales.

Re: christmas shopping - 11/13/12 01:00 AM

Let's see what I would recommend from the current sale items:

Madlax: a step up from Noir, since the characters are not cold blooded killers. Though the supernatural elements & plot are a bit odd.

My Santa: if you enjoy Ken Akumatsu (Love Hina, Negima) this is a fun & short show. As usual there are cute girls in revealing outfits.

Daphne: A show chock full of action & fanservice, and is a steal at that price.

Allison & Lillia: a fun show with a good plot, decent action, and fun characters. With the deal you get both parts for less than the cost of one.
Though it is sub-only, and it still has a kinda unfinished ending.

Welcome to the NHK: a dark comedy that is very fun. The anime is better than the manga, and at that price you can't go wrong.

Summer Wars: this movie is a lot of fun & full of action. Sure it's a lot like Digimon, but who cares.

Other stuff worth looking at:

Ushio & Tora: for an older show it's pretty fun & has good action & comedy.

Colorful: yes the show is about guys trying to look at girls panties, but they way they handle it is pretty fun.

I say it's going to be doubtful, since we are dealing with GE (Great Eastern). Right Stuf has trouble getting new stock from them as it is.

Nothing good would come out of having a sale on stuff they can't keep in stock.

Re: christmas shopping - 11/15/12 04:17 AM

BTW the next wave is up now...

Boy there are a BUNCH of stuff on these!

If you have not got it already that Moribito box set is very nice.
This set in particular is NOT a stackpack, and has 8 individual DVD cases.
The kinda neat thing about these cases is that they are about half the width of a standard case, yet are made of rather sturdy clear plastic.

Also these:

Kurau Phantom Memory: very good show, with one of the very rare occurrences for Monica Rial (in the dub) having a "grown-up" voice.
Plus it's pretty action packed & has a good story.

Aria: from what I have seen (season one) this show is very relaxing, very cute, and very touching. It has a mix of funny & sad stuff, and I was laughing one second & bawling the next (yes it made me cry). For the price I say go for it. Even if you just get one season.

Bamboo Blade: this show does have a bit of actual Kendo in it, however it's more of a fun slice-of-life show. Very fun characters (who are cute in their own way), a great dub, and a fun story. The only minus is that even with 26 episodes it still has no real conclusion, and kinda leaves you hanging.

Any opinions on these?

Micheal
That Mecha box (MD Geist & others)
Maps (from the earlier wave)

Or anything else I might be into (you know I am into pretty much anything, as long as it's dubbed). Though I am tempted on both Allison & Lillia and Aria.

Re: christmas shopping - 11/15/12 07:31 AM

I loved both Allison and Lillia and Aria. If you can tolerate subtitles at all, I say "go get 'em".
Posted by: joelgundam01

Re: christmas shopping - 11/15/12 11:33 AM

There are not many titles that I'm interested in on the second wave. Many of them I already have.

I didn't care much for Moribito when I saw it on TV (too slow in pacing) and if I ever do buy it, it will most likely be the compact collection (stackpak) Blu-ray version. I don't like jewel cases (they crack to easily) and I don't have a lot of room for any more bulky box sets.
Posted by: J.E.S.

Re: christmas shopping - 11/15/12 03:26 PM

Maps is pretty good "old school" anime.
And for what they want for it you can't go wrong.
Same for the Mecha set.
Plus, sice there all the individual vols you can just trade off the ones you don't want.
And dude... It's MD Geist!
I liked it for what it was, supa cheesy cheese! smirk

EDIT:
Also, like joel, a lot this stuff I already have/ not totally intrested in.
Although... Morebito tempts me so....

Re: christmas shopping - 11/15/12 08:38 PM

Posted by: zrdb

Re: christmas shopping - 11/17/12 09:57 PM

I think crappacks are cheap junk-I mean really, a decent case only adds a few cents to the overall cost. I'll take a litebox over a stacker anyday. But what really gets my goat are the cutaway cases crapamation and now Sentai seem to love using. I mean what's the purpose of a case-maybe to protect the disc inside? With the stupid cutaway cases all that stands between the disc and damage is the case insert and a thin layer of clear plastic-especially on the read side-jeez!!
Posted by: kiku

Re: christmas shopping - 11/18/12 02:05 AM

I believe one purpose is to reduce the amount of toxic plastic in landfills. There are better ways to achieve this though. All of the cases for the television series Eureka for example are 100% recyclable, and made from 45% post consumer/55% post industrial paper fiber, and the plastic is made from two post consumer water bottles; and... drum roll please... they keep the discs snug and safe. I think that the choice of the aforementioned cutaway case should be left to the consumer. They do leave the discs at a disadvantage in regard to safety when compared to normal cases.

I'm afraid of the coming holidays... :S I've allowed myself an approximate "budget" for any sort of entertainment/anime, but I've already eaten up the rest of this years'.
Still in the process of saving up money to go to Japan, so every time I resist buying anime, the better XD

Doesn't help that they upped the minimum amount for free shipping to Canada either. As long as I can convince others to help fill the order so it isn't all me, that'll be my saving grace.

BTW Wave 1 is now up.

Good stuff I noticed:

K-ON! Season 2
Wandaba Style
Nanaka 6/17
Bleach/Inuyasha movies
Trigun Badlands Rumble

Also just in case: they apparently cancelled the figures with Daphne in the Brilliant Blue.

One thing to note is that this is a pre-holiday sale, and it ends at midnight on Cyber Monday.
Then the REAL sale will start, and if this stuff is any indication it should be a doozy.

So far I can't really decide if I will order anything or not.
Posted by: joelgundam01

Re: christmas shopping - 11/21/12 01:35 PM

I only made a small order from the sale ($50 worth).

The discounts for the Funimation titles are pretty disappointing this year. Last year, they were at 60% off, this year it's at only 50% off.

Not to mention, I have a list of 10 titles that are on my priority list and not a single one appeared on this sale.

I hope the Christmas sale nets us better results.

On the 12+ Day sale, could you wait until the 12th day and get stuff from an earlier day or do you need to get it on the day it's released? Also, if an item sells out, could you still order it during the sale and when it's back in stock they would send it out?

Yes, you can wait until the last day. In fact, I always wait until the 13th day, since there is usually a "bundle of joy" (a little something extra) revealed on that day.

Quote:

Depends if there is a counter or not. If not, then yes you can order it even if it's out of stock and they will ship it out when it comes back in stock.

If it has a counter, then you better pick it up before it sells out. A counter means that the title has been discontinued by the manufacturer and what's left in stock is all there is left.

Re: christmas shopping - 11/27/12 01:32 AM

Most of the SAVE things are good as well.

Both El Hazard series are pretty good, but IMO the Wanderers is slightly better.

Of course there's these:

Rumbling Hearts
Solty Rei
El Cazador de la Bruja
Heat Guy J
Kannon
Comic Party Revolution

That Dojin Works combo is pretty tempting.

Though I am gonna wait until near the end to see.

10 BUCKS!
How can I go wrong! smile


Even though I paid all of $20 for my Yawara boxset it was worth every penney of it.

When I make my purchase at the end of the 12+ days sale, if I get something that doesn't release until March of next year, how would they go about handling the shipping? Would they go ahead and send out the stuff that's in-stock?

Re: christmas shopping - 11/28/12 12:29 AM

Every other Tuesday if you live in the US, they will send out the stuff that is in stock if you order something not released yet or they are waiting for more stock to come in.

It should be noted that this only applies to orders using the Economy Shipping option (Media Mail).

If you choose USPS Priority Mail, UPS Ground or UPS 2nd Day Air you only get an initial partial shipment (all in stock items get shipped) and that's it for partial shipments.

I hate it when a title goes on sale, but it's not on the version that I want. I'm looking at you Princess Resurrection. I want the bilingual version, not the blasted sub only version (parts/set). mad

Re: christmas shopping - 11/28/12 11:13 AM

Yeah... I kinda get the feeling that once a dubbed version of a title is released, that was previously released subbed; retailers have a heck of a time moving the subbed edition. As a matter of fact, I think the subbed editions of Princess Resurrection have been collecting dust at a nearby Barnes & Noble for 'bout a year now. I've been toying around with the idea of pickin' up the dubbed Princess Resurrection too, but like you; I'm kinda waitin' for a sale.

Not only do I already have the sub-only version, I ordered a 2nd copy of it so the club at school could give the series (my copy) away as a prize in our costume contest. If I knew some of the other items on the group order would *still* not be ready to ship almost 4 weeks later, I never would've asked them to send out partial shipments. Then I could argue my way into saving all the sales prices. (total order size was just over $1300, so there's a ton of items we could've saved on now XD)

Redline is seriously AWESOME! So at that price be sure you get it!

BTW any word on D Grey Man lately? As in if Funi is gonna pony up & get the rest of it to dub? I have seen the first 2 seasons, and enjoyed them (more interesting than most other "Shonnen" shows). Heard that the company who made it wants a bunch more $ for the rest of it.

Anyhow, come on let's get some slightly better options for stuff...

And I say get Grenadier, whether you buy the one in the Christmas Sale or piece it together.
However You Must also buy Grenadier DVD 1 (Hyb): Service With A Smile + Figure ( only 64 left )

The price of it is worth it just to get the Figure of Rushuna.
I sold the DVD to fye and made some of my money back.

Re: christmas shopping - 12/01/12 01:36 AM

Next wave is up.

Negima?! is fun, though lime the other one does not follow the manga too closely. I think they may have "aged up" the girls somewhat to make them in High School (instead of Middle School). Though that still does not really matter since they all still "love" a 10 year old boy in some way.
The fun part of this was the "dud" cards that he got for the power-ups sometimes, cause the girls turn into uber-cute little creatures when that happens.

Other than that, obviously Full Metal Alchemist.

Sekirei was fun if you enjoy battle harem shows.

Kinda surprised that season 2 of Heavens Lost Property was not in the mix, since season 1 was yesterday. Sekirei season 2 should also be in the mix IMO.

As for the earlier comment about the variety of the sales, I am not complaining, cause there are a lot of good deals. I simply am surprised there is that much focus on the manga this year (last year was almost all DVD/Blu-Ray IIRC).

I might get season 2 to fix my current quirky collection:
FMA season 1
FMA single DVD vol 7
FMA season 2 part 1
FMA season 2 part 2
(in their "infinite wisdom" Funimation decided to split the seasons differently between the half-season sets and the full season sets: S1 full season ends at 25, S2 half season part 1 starts at 29... -_-; )

I'm a bit on the fence about Genshiken manga omnibus 2, since Rightstuf's international shipping $3.50/item negates quite a bit of the saving, while the places I normally buy my manga have flat shipping or free shipping...

I think my anime collection is a bit too big: about 30% of the DVD offers in the sale I already have and with being a bit picky because of running out of storage space, I wonder if I will piece together a 5-6 item order from the sales without having to throw in some pre-orders... wink

So we also get these:

FLCL (even by Gainax standards this one was very weird)
Ragnarok The Animation (if you like MMORPGs you should like this)
Popotan (though it's still cheaper at where I work...)
This Ugly Yet Beautiful World (it had a very annoying ending though)
Ah! My Goddess Season 2 (did the manga end yet?)

Yes,yes, and... YES!
I really like Amagami.
They did a very smart thing and gave each of the girls thier own set of episodes.
Even better, Sentai put each arc on separate dics, so if you didn't care for one of the girls, you can just skip over her disc.
So overall... YES! smirk

Just to expand on this. Unlike the other anime companies, Discotek has no desire of getting any of their titles on TV (they only have the video rights for each title), so they don't see the point of supplying a suggested rating.

I know, right? But here's the problem. If we were all to hold off purchasing it because we wanted to make sure Funimation released the whole series BEFORE we bought it, then Funimation would probably conclude that the title was a poor seller, and abandon the last two movies as being unprofitable. The only way we, as fans, can influence Funimation to bring over the last two movies is to show them that it is at least reasonably profitable for them to do so. So, I say that if you want to buy the series, then get what's available now, and send Funi the message, "Yes, we'd like to have the rest, please."

Posted by: EricDent

Re: christmas shopping - 12/07/12 01:32 AM

I guess that as a "night owl" I jump on the site when they update the sale...
Today's batch includes these:

Allison & Lilila Complete Collection: though it's sub-only it has a good story, fun characters, and some pretty exciting adventure & action stuff.
The only small issue is that it seems kinda open ended. Like there is a 3rd part that is missing.

The Third: The Girl With the Blue Eye: for that price it's insane not to get it.
It's a very good show, and I am definately grabbing that ASAP.

Mongolian Chop Squad (formally known as BECK): yes they finally changed the name (maybe Beck got tired of the anime fans asking him to sing songs from this). Anyhow it's a very good show with an amazing dub (Greg Ayers can sing really well), though he does use "that voice" a lot in this show.
It's also kinda full of curse words. If you enjoyed the "alternative music" wave of the '90s you should love this.

Moon Phase: it's cute, it's creepy, it's funny, it's sad, and has the always fun Monica Rial as a loli vampire girl who wears cat-ears. It's a great choice for Halloween, or anytime that you want something spooky.

UFO Ultramaiden Valkyrie (though it's missing the 1st season?): loads of nudity (set in a bathhouse) with bouncing boobs & butts galore.
That does not take away from a very good love story, that had everything in it. We had action, adventure, a mess of cat-girls, an Ultraman alien, and a rather fun Karaoke contest.

Save Me! Lollipop

Plus (even though I have never seen it, but hear it's great)
Tweeny Witches.

So this is most likely what I am grabbing:

Daphne in the Brilliant Blue Bundle (darn no more figures, but whatever)
El Hazard: The Wanderers
The Third: The Girl With The Blue Eye
Tweeny Witches Bundle
Redline

All for a bit under $100.

I used to have that problem-but then I figured that some of what I "just had to have" wasn't so important after all and a cheaper alternative was just as good.

I'm kinda curious as to why volume 4 isn't included.

Thanks for pointing that out kiku!

As stated for the Hellsing Ultimate collection. Volume 4 is in the weekly specials. Weekly specials are never put into the other big anime sales RightStuf does.

That's because set 4 release out only four weeks ago. In other words, it's too new for this sale.

So, my second order from the Christmas sale:
Croisee in a Foreign Labyrinth
Tweeny Witches Holiday Bundle
This Boy Can Fight Aliens - wasn't sure about this one, but after looking more into it, I think I'll like it. It's only $10 anyway. :p

Re: christmas shopping - 12/09/12 01:46 AM

Croisee and Tweeny are both excellent choices.

Starting off one smaller order with DVD collections for:

I know it isn't anime but I saw The Lord Of The Rings bluray extended version boxset that normally retails for 100 bucks for 50 bucks and got it-it'll be interesting to see how the added scenes affect the story and boy is the case pretty-anime packaging should be like this!!

Re: christmas shopping - 12/09/12 02:44 PM

I have all three of the Extended versions on DVD, and they are all really good.

Hello KyleMills, "Welcome to the Forum"

Iíve seen all but the FMA ova, and the only ones still not on my shelves are
Noein & Full Metal Panic
But I do plan on re-purchasing Full Metal Panic

Chrono Crusade has always been a keeper for me.

Ghost in The Shell SAC season 1 was great. Between the two, IMHO the first season is superior.

Mushi-shi was fantastic. Much slower pace than you usually see but it absolutely works here.

Full Metal Panic season one was okay. Loved season two; one of the funniest things I've ever seen.. Can't speak on season three except that the clips I've seen look badass.

Chrono Crusade was okay. I prefer the direction the manga took but what can you do?

Noein - Seen it on Syfy. The plot was interesting, but I found the characters to be annoying.
Blue Gender - An oldie but a goody. The concept is very similar to Starship Troopers.
Ghost in The Shell season 1 - You can't go wrong with this title. GITS is a classic and the series is even better.
Mushi-shi - A very unique series, that is a bit slow in pacing but it has a very interesting premise.
Moribito <snip> - It's a very good looking fantasy series with an interesting plot. Make sure you marathon it or watch it in chunks. The pacing is too slow otherwise.
Full Metal Panic seasons 1, 2 & 3 - Another good action mecha title with a bit of comedy on the side.
Chrono Crusade - I loved this title, but before warned of its bitter sweet ending. The staff really did their homework on the historic settings.
Bubblegum Crisis Tokyo 2040 - A classic cyber punk series that I really enjoyed.
Madlax - Part of the Girls with Guns trilogy with Noir and El Cazador rounding out the three. If you enjoy this one, then check out the other two. I personally enjoyed Madlax the most out of the three, but opinions vary on this.
E's Otherwise - Just ordered this title myself from the sale, so no comment.
FMA BrotherHood OVA collection - Haven't seen it, but you need to see the series to understand it. The OVA collection is just a collection of shorts, that fill in some of the gaps from the TV series.
