Well it's in my cart atm, just deciding on a couple more sci-fi titles to add. So far I have:

Full Metal Panic Season 1 (managed to pick up Fumoffu and The Second Raid locally)
Elfen Lied
Claymore Vol. 1 w/ art box and pre-ordering volume 2 (great series)
Excel Saga
Bludgeoning Angel Dokuro-Chan

Not much, but it will probably keep me busy. I'm still working on Lost Universe atm so I'm just stocking up for the long run! Now I just have to decide which sci-fi titles I want to add. . .decisions, decisions! frown

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 10/17/08 07:20 PM

Hmm, I dunno. If its got a good story and is flushed out right I tear up on just about anything. Lately it was on Fafnir and Kannazuki No Miko. Fafnir, because so many good ppl died. Kannazuki No Miku, for the struggle of love between the two main characters. Both very beutiful story lines, both from GENEON. At the moment I'm wondering how exatctly GENEON went under frown. It has so many great titles (not Tittles) :P''

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 10/17/08 07:45 PM

Saikano has a very high emotional factor, I'd say well in excess of your example titles. It's a great show and is absolutely worth every burning tear shed for it.

True. I didn't know what i was getting into when i first watched it. However it turned out to be a very good show and would reccommend watching it. Also, if you haven't already, give Air a shot as well.

Wow that's quite the haul Zaraki & Hobby Ninja. Would hate to see the bill on those orders lol. How is Gilgamesh? looks dark and gothic from the clips I've seen of it.

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 10/18/08 03:25 PM

I was way to unsure about whether or not I'd like the character designs in Gilgamesh. Also, is there any reasoning behind buying the Vol.01+Artbox and the other volumes over the Thinpack?
Posted by: GreenGel

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 10/18/08 05:14 PM

Just picked up Read or Die vols. 2,3,4 and 6 along with Shuffle vol. 3 (which finishes off the series for me.) I still need to pick up vol. 1 and 5 of RoD to finish off the series.

(The FYE at my local(ish) mall has several boxes of anime from Geneon at a special Buy One, Get One deal, which is why I've picked up so many titles this month.)

My local FYE also had the same sale on Geneon. I ended up picking up all four Hellsing Ultimate titles beacause of this sale.

I have only seen one episode, but yes it is dark and gothic. I have a habit of learning about a series I think I might like and then collecting the entire series before watching more of it. It seems to work for me because I know my tastes better than anyone else so I've very seldom pick up anything I end up not liking.grin

Because I started getting it piecemeal when I could afford it. I haven't always had to have a thinpacks although the dwindling space in my house is suggesting I think otherwise. With the recent problems in the anime industry I am starting to change the way I purchase anime now. I have already started buying more box sets than I used to. Plus, Gilgamesh and a few other discontinued titlesgrin I've been picking up at Rightstuf at good prices will probaly be some of the last individual discs I'll collect.

With the price of gas and groceries lately I have had to cut back some. I checked my bank statement and I've been spending only about 50% of what I was on anime at the begining of the year.frown

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 10/19/08 06:28 PM

If one is going to talk about Gas. Not last month was it almost hitting $4 a gallon, now its under $3 a gallon. I think its $2.69 at the Wal-Mart down the street.
Posted by: GreenGel

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 10/19/08 09:01 PM

Wow. Under $3 a gallon? I wish it was that cheap here. Getting closer each day, but most places are still hovering around $3.10+ a gallon. Of course, I do live in New York so it is always more expensive here than most places.

Edit: To add something to the thread, I just pre-ordered the Death Note box set with the first 20 episodes.
Posted by: Antics

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 10/20/08 03:57 AM

*sigh* not to go off topic from the thread but gas prices are a joke.
In the States you guys are paying say $3.10/gallon? At the pumps in my city here in Canada we are paying the equivalent of $4.80/gallon. I filled my car yesterday for $1.19/liter (equivalent to $4.76/gallon). So you guys that are having a hard time paying $3.10/gallon, think about Canadians who are paying over $1.50/gallon more than you, then you might not think your pump prices are *so* bad. We're both on the same continent but we are, for some unknown reason, paying an outrageous amount more than America. I would LOVE to be paying $3.10/gallon ($0.77/liter), I don't think I've seen those low prices in over 2 years probably.
Just my 2 cents.... laugh

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 10/20/08 04:11 PM

I only buy on sales, so my previous post up on pg.02 is what I'm gonna buy.
(EDIT:$256.33 was how much I ordered, but only about $50 of it is gonna get shipped immediately. Also, I saved about $120 using the Sale and my GotAnime membership smile.)
Actually thats the cheapest gas. Just today its down to $2.49. NOTE: I buy premium gas at Shell. So my gas is still in the $3 range. smile I take care of my car. I've actually never put regular gas in my car, only premium LOL.

How worth it is it to get the GotAnime subscription? I was looking at getting it but wasn't sure if the amount I'd be saving would be worth the subscription. then again i guess with the poor Canadian exchange rate to American dollars that any money saved would be worth it lol

PS. Still researching another sci-fi series to add I can get free Canadian shipping @ righstuf. Close but just shy of the $150 I need smile

You'll probably easily make up the cost of the subscription. I know I've already made back my subscription about 4 times over.

I have had my GotAnime membership for about three years (four years if you count my renewing this month) and it has paid for itself every couple of months. If you order regularly every year it really pays off. Being able to use it even on Rightstuf's sales is also a big plus.smile

That'll have to be it for this sale, though I did want to get a bunch more that I'll just have to wait on.

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 10/24/08 08:48 PM

Alright, so 2 of my long LONG awaited orders showed up today. Code Geass boxy-box, My-Otome vol 6 and 7 from TRSI. This order has been on endless back order from like 4 months ago or better. And my Hellsing ultimate limited edition showed up from another online store that shall remain unnamed at this time. HOWEVER!!!! I also had another item in my box from them, it.... it SHOULD have been Karin vol 5 but it was in fact Moonphase the complete collection. It is even on my packing slip as Karin.

Me being the good guy that I am, I called them up and said, "HEY! What’s the deal with this box?" in my best Jerry Signfield impression. And they said that they will ship out my Karin DVD and because they have absolutely no record of that copy of Moonphase leaving that I could just keep it because it would be more of a hassle to get it back into inventory. I guess the returns are in a different state completely from the warehouse. So woot and stuff.

Well last week I ordered all the single volumes of Koi Kaze, Risky Safety, and Strawberry Eggs. But while I'm waiting for those to arrive, something in the back of my mind told me to go visit the local MovieStop store. And I am glad that I did. So now I also have all the single volumes of two classics I've been wanting for a long time, FLCL and Outlaw Star. Best of all, I spent less than $42 (including tax) for it.

Welcome to the NHK 6


Ordered Pumpkin Scissors 5&6 and Welcome to the NHK 6 but got worked up about the Full Moon O Sagashite issue [again] (here' lookin' at you Otakuden wink ) so I scrapped my plans to get all of Boys Over Flowers and Ranma 1/2. I did buy and enjoy the Ranma OAV some time ago but pondering Full Moon's fate again sorta sucked the wind out of my sails.

In their place I'm getting a TTGL Yoko figure and I'm teetering on the brink of getting a Little Busters Yuiko figure. It's way more ecchi than anything I've gotten thus far but it's damn, damn cute.

Just ordered these from the TRSI/Nozomi sale:

Aria The Natural DVD Collection Part 1
Gakuen Alice DVD Complete Collection
Maria Watches Over Us Season 2
Maria Watches Over Us Season 3
Toward the Terra Movie
Irresponsible Captain Tylor OVA LE

I had been misinformed by the interwebs that the crew's mood towards Tylor was incongruous with where the TV series left off (i.e. they revert to thinking he's an idiot and are mistrustful as if someone hit the reset button). I only just heard from someone recently that the OAV is set within the TV series timeline so to behavior does make sense. I hope my new source is right because I went ahead and picked it up.

Now the trick is to figure out how to watch anime faster than it piles up...

Shingu: Secret of the Stellar Wars: bought!

Was thinking about The Third, but was wondering...is there gonna be just a boxset version, or am I gonna hafta get all the singles and the single+artbox? Ya know, I do like those normal dvd cases that carry 6 dvds like my Overman King Gainer boxset (its not a box, its just a regular old dvd case that holds 6, YES SIX, dvds) or I could do with those thinpak sets that ADV gots smile.

Bottom row inbetween Banner of the Stars II and Cowboy Bebop. There lies the Overman King Gainer 6dvd-in-1dvd case masterpiece of engineering. Excuse the glare. The picture was taken atop my bed and my light was on (it was dark out) so it was impossible to completely remove the glare. Atleast no easy means that came to mind anyway.

Gads I hope Bandai's recent packaging trend doesn't catch on. It's nearly impossible from a quick glance to differentiate between a single volume from a full series at a glance. I've completely looked over titles on store shelves for months before realizing it wasn't just a single volume of that series. It's shelf presence is also rather anemic when it's on your own shelves at home. ADV-style thinpaks all the way!

Added today:
Towards the Terra DVD Set Part 2
Simoun Vol. 5

I agree, though I'm more worried about the opposite problem. I can't believe how many massive boxes Bandai seems to have for different single volume LEs.

As for orders:

Just shipped was my backorder/pre-order of the Bleach movie and the Familiar of Zero box set, hopefully to arrive later this week.

Also, just ordered:
Lost Universe box set
Ninja Nonsense box set
The Third vol. 3 w/artbox through vol. 6. (I bought volume 1 and 2 a while ago, though I still haven't gotten around to watching it yet, so I basically bought the series on faith.)

That's quite a catch Alpha.

I just pre-ordered myself a copy of Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion DVD Part 2 (Hyb) Limited Edition. Allright!!!!

As I understand it, yes. You can take some comfort in the fact that the term "artbox" is used almost exclusively for boxes used to house full anime collections. If you look at the picture really closely (CTRL + mousewheel in Firefox or IE to zoom if it helps) and you can likely make out that it appears to have room for at least 4 volumes. I'm just hoping the second LE set has the OST since the first doesn't.

Actually it got two artboxes. LE volumes 1 & 7 are what you're looking for I believe.

If I'm understanding your question correctly the complete collection is of the series itself whereas the movies are just that. The LE editions come in a steel case like you may have seen with the Hellsing and Black Lagoon LEs. And of course who can forget those sweet, sweet OSTs... Nice wishlist BTW. I'm also looking forward to seeing .Hack//Roots make its way to "complete collection" status.

An excellent choice. Very gritty, very bloody, very epic and very good. Susumu Hirasawa's music is a perfect fit.

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 10/31/08 02:49 PM

If any of you bought a Eureka Seven artbox that is supposed to house all volumes 1-12 could you please post a picture of it.
Posted by: Tsunami3k

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 10/31/08 03:58 PM

I'll try to post a pic tonight when I get home (it may be kind of late). The artboxes included with volumes I listed in response to your original question each hold 6 volumes each. There is no single box for all twelve volumes (which would be huge).
Posted by: Tsunami3k

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 11/01/08 01:29 AM

Ok Alpha_Z, here are some pics for you. I didn't shoot them as carefully as I normally would have but my lights are in use in my anime room and I'm having some anime club friends over tomorrow (err..today) so I don't want to make a mess. Anyway, hopefully the pics will give you a good idea of what the Eureka 7 artboxes look like.

Eureka Artboxes 1
Eureka Artboxes 2

I ordered these on Halloween morning:
Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion DVD Part 2 LE
Galaxy Angel X Complete Collection DVD
Ghost Slayers Ayashi DVD Part 1
Gurren Lagann DVD Part 1 LE
Jyu-Oh-Sei (Planet of the Beast King): Complete Series
Otoboku: Maidens Are Falling For Me DVD 1
Rocket Girls Complete Collection DVD
Silent Mobius Movie 1 DVD LE + CD
Silent Mobius Movie 2 DVD LE + CD
The Girl Who Leapt Through Time DVD LE
Toward the Terra DVD Part 3

Thus concluding my "Red October" shenanigans with regards to my credit card.

I used to keep my wish list on a piece of paper, then I started tracking it online. Things have never been the same, however, since I moved it to that devilish bit of plastic in my wallet.

I got both of the boxes, but I also found the other boxes that came with the other limited disks very handy. Because they fit 6 disks perfectly. I think you can figure out where I am going with this.

Okay, why both version of Lucky Star volume 4? Just curious.
Posted by: long time lurker

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 11/01/08 08:28 PM

I started that with Haruhi, both the regular and the limited. I don't know why I am doing it with Lucky Star also. My excuse is because I don't like the crayon covers with the limited, but I could really care less about that because they are in a box.

I have no reason.
Posted by: LuckySeven

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 11/01/08 08:42 PM

Well since I'm in a position of playing catch up with all the anime I missed out on pretty much since DVDs took over the biz I'll take what I can get. I'd like box sets, but if all I can get is single volumes I'll take those too. Matter of fact my last order was nothing but single volumes of anime series.
Posted by: WhtHawk

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 11/01/08 08:55 PM

I like watching the bargain bin and snagging a complete series in singles for less than the box set.

On a side note, after watching Vexille on Blu-ray, I've decided my general disdain for CG stems from not having it in HD. After watching Iron Man, I thought that Blu-ray still needed time to mature. After seeing Vexille, I think that there are at least a few studios who can do it right.

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 11/01/08 10:23 PM

Yeah, even though I was planning on waiting 'til later on this month, I think I'm gonna have to go ahead and snag the Tenchi Universe and Tenchi in Tokyo sets within the week. I'd throw in the Vandread stage 1 & 2 set, but I'd have to dip into my savings to have enough right now. Maybe they'll have it on sale again sometime.

Ok, so heres another question, is it just the vol.01 and vol.07 artboxes or can you use any of them like that?
Posted by: Tsunami3k

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 11/02/08 04:18 PM

Only volumes 1 and 7 come with the durable laminated cardboard artboxes but the other LE volumes come in paper boxes of nearly identical dimensions. Per long time lurker, it sounds like they can hold 6 volumes as well if that's what you're pondering.

Posted by: GreenGel

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 11/03/08 12:26 PM

Just grabbed from the weekly specials:

Slayers season 2
Grenadier
X (box set 1 and 2)
Fushigi Yugi...: Eikoden


Next up is my order for the Bandai sale...still trying to narrow what I want down to a reasonable level though.
Posted by: LuckySeven

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 11/03/08 02:01 PM

Good shot with Grenadier. It fits to a tee what I consider a good under the radar title. It does have its share of fanservice moments, and Rushuna herself looks very um... bouncy, but it overcomes those things with a fairly solid storyline. I enjoyed it, but like most short anime series, I was left wanting a little more. Not because the story was lacking, but because I really liked the characters and how they interacted with each other.

I can't say anything on X, or Fushigi Yugi, but Slayers is on my every growing list of stuff to buy. Thankfully the local MovieStop store seems to have an excess of all three season in stock so I can take my time getting to that. smirk

I can recommend it, but it really depends to your tastes. This is a mecha title, that has some harem elements involved. In a way, it reminds Nadesico. However, it does have a unique story premise.
Posted by: LuckySeven

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 11/04/08 11:08 AM

Well thankfully waiting a few days didn't hurt, I found the extra money I needed so I just ordered the Tenchi Universe, Tenchi in Tokyo, and Vandread Stages 1 & 2 collections. But this really put a hit on the old wallet, I won't be supplementing my online purchases with a trip over to MovieStop while I wait on my order to arrive like last time.
Posted by: Alpha_Zeon

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 11/04/08 05:31 PM

I can't see how Vandread would remind you of Nadesico. Personally I didn't like the mecha, or the characters, in Vandread at all. Very bad CG mechs. Eh, I tried to think of something I did like, to balance it out and not make it look horrible, but I can't remember anything. Did it have a good ending? I only watched it on TV like on Action or Starz.

For some reason it did. I just can't put my finger on it. I think it was because the two lead characters.

new but also suspiciously used. the case was all messed up so i asked and the cashier at FYE gave me a discount. i'm ready for some rally and '67 shelby gt500 acapulco blue with white racing stripes action laugh

as for St. Tail; it may have had its issues with the domestic release, but i was glad to own it (until the movers lost one of my dvd boxes) and am glad to own it again.
Posted by: LuckySeven

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 11/06/08 05:58 PM

Gunsmith Cats eh? That's a good one. Heck, its one of my favorite anime series period. Oddly enough I like it because its very un-like typical anime. No sweatdrops, no huge cross shaped veins, no super deformed character moments, basically its completely free of the usual anime trappings. All in all it plays out like a live-action movie, and that's what makes it great. Once you have it, be sure to check out the making of feature, you'll enjoy the show even more after seeing that. I only wish they had made more. I know there are graphic novels and manga, but with how well done this series was down to even the little details I really wish there was more than just the 3 OAV episodes.

Those movers would've never left alive if my anime came up missing (body cavity searches for everyone!). I had a difficult time renting Saint Tail waiting almost 5 months before vol. 5 was available--love the OP.

OP 1 is a lot of fun though my favorite songs of Saint Tail are the EDs. I am so nerdy for that show I own the 3" CD singles. :P

Does anyone know if the TP still holds the license for Saint Tail or the series is just OOP? I know it will most likely NEVER be released again but I'm just curious.

Several times I almost bought the R2s, though that would kind of be silly I suppose. wink

Code Geass disc 3 and 4
Gurren Lagann part 1
Lucky Star 1 LE and discs 2-4 normal

Also put in a "pre-order order" of:

Claymore disc 2
Darker than Black disc 2
Negima (Viridian collection)
Ouran High School Host Club (part 2)
School Rumble (season 2 part 2)
Wedding Peach season 1

What's the difference between the new Season 1 vs the old Thinpack boxes? I also see the singles are going dirt cheap as well so for those on the fence it is a good way to check it out.
Posted by: GreenGel

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 11/07/08 09:15 AM

I'm not sure if there is any difference other than the fact it is a re-release. But, I figured with the pre-order discount that it has right now it was worth picking up the newest set rather than the currently released one.

I'm looking forward to getting to it eventually, though I imagine it will sit on my stack of DVDs for a while before I get a chance to stick it in.

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 11/07/08 09:59 AM

So I just got my copy of MyZHime My-Otome Zwei *I really love to type all that out needlessly*. I can truthfully say that I have never been so confused by a box in my life. It took me a solid 10 minutes to figure out how to open it in order to get at the DVD. And I am a freaking engineer. I was almost ready to just rip into it but I didn't want to trash the box.

i can't say for sure, but i wouldn't be surprised if the license was long gone. Saint Tail; was back in TPs early days which weren't all that glorious, imnsho.

i did the usual - file a claim and such, but the box never showed up, of course. that was my first move and i learned alot from it. now, i move everything myself cept for the big bulky stuff. you'd be amazed what can fit into a honda civic 2 door (or, back in the day, a toyota corrolla).

Yeah, they are a bit pricey. If the R2s of Saint Tail or Touch had English subs I'd splurge in a second. Screw my Emergency savings fund! I needs some anime. wink

In all seriousness, I am ever vigilant for the two missing LDs I need for Saint Tail. Hopefully someday I can get them. I bought mine from VKILL (an old fansubber from back in the day)

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 11/09/08 05:41 PM

Well, again I'm going to have to NOT buy Eureka Seven. cry I just cant justify buying something at that price, for the full collection, even WITH the 46% discount. I cant justify buying any of the special editions either cus I have all of the two mangas series' and all three soundtracks. So the only thing I'd be getting is a shirt, the dvd, and a box. I just can't bring myself to buy it no matter how much I LOVE the series.

This IS what I'm going to get tho. Note: I could sacrifice all this to get Eureka Seven, but everything in the On-Order and In-stock is all about the same price as the whole Eureka Seven series if I bought the singles. Give or take $25-$50.

Pre-Orders In order of release.
Gurren Lagann DVD Part 1 (Hyb) (vol 1-2) Limited Edition
Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion DVD Part 2 (Hyb) Limited Edition
Gurren Lagann DVD Part 2 (Hyb) (vol 3-4) Limited Edition
Gundam SEED Destiny DVD Collection 1 (Hyb) - Anime Legends (note that I see this and drop buying the single dvds and the artbox.)

On-Order & In-Stock
My-HiME Complete Collection DVD (Hyb) - Anime Legends
My Otome Zwei DVD (Hyb)
Silent Mobius DVD Complete Collection (Hyb) (Anime Legends)
Silent Mobius Movie 2 DVD (Hyb) Limited Edition + CD

Please (Onegai) Teacher DVD Complete Collection (Hyb) - Anime Legends
Please (Onegai) Twins DVD Complete Collection (Hyb) - Anime Legends

Values is in the eye of the beholder I guess. Here's one small facet of how I compute "value".

Eureka Seven DVD 1 $24.98 * 0.54 = $13.5 @ 125m --> $6.5/hr 1x(Baseline)
Code Geass Pt. 2 LE (Vols 3&4) $60 * 0.54 = $32.4 @ 200m --> $9.72/hr 1.5x
Gurren Lagann Pt. 1 LE (Vols 1&2) $60 * 0.54 = $32.4 @ 225m --> $8.64/hr 1.33x

Silent Mobius LE $40 * 0.54 = $21.6 @ 54m --> $24/hr 3.7x
(I left out the brick boxes since comparing older re-releases to newer ones is a bit "apples and oranges"; one day all of these will be categorized as "older" too and I'm sure every one of them will see an economy release in due time.)

Anyway, you've got some good picks there; that looks a lot like my order. Hopefully, when Bandai does release an economy edition of Eureka Seven, they'll give it a little dignity and respect and spare it the drab gray brick fate.

Emma Season 2. Why I didn't preorder this is beyond me.
Posted by: LuckySeven

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 11/10/08 11:44 AM

Well I ordered it last week, but surprise of surprises (to me at least), my stuff arrived today. Usually its been exactly a week to the day that I made the order. So for me this is a slightly early and welcome surprise. So now I can add the DVD sets of Tenchi Universe, Tenchi In Tokyo, and Vandread to my ever growing collection.

Now the question is what's next? My little bro asked me to get Girls Bravo. Now I've seen it and its not the worst anime in the world, but its no masterpiece either. I'm a little short on money so I can't do it right now without messing with my savings account. I guess I need to hurry if I do get it for him since all the single volumes are almost sold out and the price for the box set is way more than I would be willing to pay. I really wonder what I should do. He never asks me for much as far as anime is concerned and because of that I don't mind getting it for him, but is it worth messing with my savings for?

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 11/10/08 12:25 PM

Girls Bravo = Nothing but a lot of "Fan Service" with a half decent storyline. Nothing that great imo. If you're okay with buying your brother something like that then I'd say go for it.
Posted by: LuckySeven

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 11/10/08 03:07 PM

Yeah, I know what it is, I've seen it online before. I didn't think it was great, but it wasn't as awful as I've heard people say it was either. Like I said though, this isn't for me so much as it is that he asked me for it. Its not what I'd get for him if given the choice. But hey, he actually asked me to get something anime related. He almost never does that, so that's why I'm even considering this. You gotta share the anime love you know. Pass it on to future generations.

I'm currently watching the show on Adult Swim (Cartoon Network). It's a bit slow in pacing, but the animation and art design are drop dead gorgeous.
Posted by: LuckySeven

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 11/11/08 12:02 PM

I'm watching Moribito on Adult Swim as well. I had been watching it all along so I can't say I'm too keen on them starting over from the beginning after 10 episodes. I understand why since they decided to move it back to a more decent time than the 5:30am eastern time death slot it had been moved to after the first 3 episodes. Now if only they'd actually advertise their anime maybe they'd get their precious ratings. Its kinda hard to keep up with the anime shows on Adult Swim when they feel the need to shuffle the schedule around in such a sporadic way.

What do you guys think?

Definately worth checking out. I didn't think that it moved that slow in the beginning, and the story is really good. One that i waited for to see a R1 release. This is one that i could say that has re-watchable written on it (for me anyway).

As with anything, it depends on your tastes, but I'm in the "love it" camp. It's a good-natured police comedy, and while it uses plenty of stereotypes, they're along the lines of "laughing with" rather than "laughing at," and everyone gets a turn.

You've already seen some it, so I'll mention that it's fairly consistent. You can expect more of the same throughout all four box sets of Season 1, so if you've liked/disliked what you've seen so far, you'll know what you're getting into. However, the movie is more serious than the series, and the mini-specials are sillier than the series (as all omake should be).

I think it's a good series to savor over time, watching a couple of episodes here and there, between other titles (I can say the same about Master Keaton).

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 11/13/08 01:49 AM

Although not my usual box set purchases, I've decided to pick up some series through the bargain bin sale. If I can end up saving some good $$ through buying the individual dvd's then I'm all for it. Even with the weak exchange rate I'm seeing to Canada at the moment, there are some great deals.
So far I've picked up:

Ergo Proxy DvDs 1-5
Le Chavelier D'Eon
Haibane Renmei

I'm contemplating Excel Saga. TRSI has volumes 1,4,5,6 so I'm just trying to find a reliable place to fill in the missing two volumes for a good price.

PS. Is Volume 6 of Ergo Proxy hard to come by? I can't seem to find it anywhere.
Posted by: GreenGel

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 11/13/08 08:15 AM

I'd planned to cut back, really I had, but there were a few items I just couldn't pass up for the moment so I picked up:

To Heart (Disc 1-4 + artbox)
This Ugly Yet Beautiful World (Disc 1-3 + artbox)
Gravion (complete collection)

That was all from the bargain bin sale.

Also picked up from weekly specials:

Vandread box set (stages 1-2)

I was planning on not getting it this week, but I figured the weekly special price was too good not to grab it.

I'll have to look through the bargain bin sale some more and see what else I may want to get.
Posted by: LuckySeven

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 11/13/08 09:49 AM

I was not planning on getting anything again so soon, but for the sake of this sale I think I'll pull out a little cash from my account and pick up Chobits and Girls Bravo in single volumes. With Chobits I enjoyed it enough to want to see it again, though I wonder if I should bother with volume 7, I hear that one is just a bunch of recap episodes and the Chibits short. Girls Bravo on the other hand, I'd only be getting for the sake of my younger brother. It is certainly not a great series, but it is not as horrible as I have heard/read other people describe it either. Eh well I'll wait 'til Friday before I hit up the back to get what I need before I decide for sure.

Pretty much, since the singles are out of print just like most of Geneon's singles. Funimation only released out the complete collection, so what singles are available were released by Geneon well over a year ago.

I probably can find a copy of volume six pretty easily. The question is how much are you will to pay for it? It's not going to $5 like TRSI's current price.

I have the series myself and got it for a nice price at another retailer last year. I personally enjoyed the series quite a bit, because it didn't hold back in the content. I'll go as far as saying that for a harem titles, Girls Bravo was way above average.
Posted by: GreenGel

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 11/13/08 12:08 PM

Well, I just did some calculating of the anime I own and RightStuf.com is where just over 50% of the anime I bought has come from. It was this weeks bargain bin sale that pushed it ahead of all the other places I buy anime (Best Buy, FYE, Various Hobby Shops, Amazon.com, picked up at conventions, etc.)

Also, grabbed a couple of other series that a friend mentioned to me a while ago, given that they were so cheap with the bargain bin deals, I figured I'd pick them up:

Strawberry Marshmallow (1-3 + artbox)
Coyote Ragtime Show (1-3 + artbox)

Now, I believe that will be it for probably a week or so. I need to get an infusion of cash from a couple of paychecks before I can grab anything else.

Taking advantage of a sale elsewhere I picked up Maria-sama Season 1. I feel compelled to buy much of what TRSI releases since they usually only grab the good stuff.

I'm still wishing they'd pick up something like Touch, though.

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 11/13/08 10:55 PM

I was on the fence about it since I first heard about the sale. Mainly because I just dropped over $100 on my last order which was barely more than a week ago. But I thought to myself when is this gonna happen again?, and when it does, will either of these still be available? With that in mind I made my decision. I went ahead and put in the order for all the single volumes of Chobits and Girls Bravo. There were some others that I wanted as well, but I'm just gonna have to wait on those. So much for saving up for that XBox 360 or PlayStation 3. tired

I suppose you're right. Still though I think the money I've spent on anime since I re-discovered my love for anime a 2nd time (I'll explain that when I can get my words together better) was probably enough to cover the cost of one or the other by now.

No. Not yet (tho i haven't seen GE999 yet grin)

(just what is a ROTFLMAO? (brain fart))


alpha_zeon answered the ROTFLMAO question, but as for the Lucky Star scene, it's a blatant spoof/tribute to the end of the movie/tv seres. lemmee see if i can find the scene and i'll post a link when i do.

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 11/24/08 06:54 AM

Just picked up:

Karin vol. 1 w/artbox (from daily deals)
Karin vol. 3 (from Bargin Bin)
Karin vol. 4-6 (from Weekly Specials)
Shakugan no Shana (from Weekly specials)

I'm hoping Karin vol. 2 ends up on weekly special or daily deal sometime in the not to distant future so I can grab that as well to finish off the series. I'm trying to hold off on buying too much at the moment, as I am a little short on cash (I just had to get a new cell phone/contract which is not only an annoyance but extremely expensive.)

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 11/24/08 07:23 AM

ok. here is the ending sequance to GE999 which was spoofed with much love in Lucky Star.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h4R-TJjSkOE

i recommend watching all 7 minutes of it, but the spoof starts at about 1 minute and 35 seconds. the spoof picks up speed at 2 minutes and 30 seconds, and then BAM! at 2 minutes and 50 seconds laugh

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 11/26/08 09:19 AM

I just placed an order (through TRSI) for...

Battle Royale High School DVD (Hyb)
Chrono Crusade Complete Collection, 2008 Holiday Edition DVD (Hyb)
Darker Than Black DVD 2 (Hyb)
Noir Ani-Mini DVD 1 (D)
Toward The Terra Movie DVD (S)
When They Cry (Higurashi) DVD 6 (Hyb)

I just wanted the Noir disc to complete my collection ($1), and even though I've read some negative reviews about Battle Royale HS, I'm curious, and it's only $7. I've never read the manga, but I do have the two live-action films, which I assume are completely unrelated to the anime.

Posted by: Stefanie

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 11/26/08 04:26 PM

Nope, I've never seen a single episode. I'm buying Chrono Crusade based on a combination of 1) reviews, 2) recommendations from you guys, and 3) a personal hunch (call it "woman's intuition," if you will). I'm glad I waited for the "Holiday" box set. I'm guessing that means there's a Christmas episode. smile

Well, I wasn't impressed with the trailers of Chrono Crusade via all my ADV sets, but if it went on sale I'd get it. Also, whats with the Holiday Edition? How is it different besides maybe the artbox?

Why even make an Ani-Mini with just one episode? Is that like those really small 3" disks?

True enough. According to my überlist, there is indeed a Christmas episode: Episode #12 - Holy Night. Your intuition has served you well. It's a very good show and the deep sentimentality that it built up to left a lasting impression on me.

It's a great choice to pick up. It tells a great story that really brings up some very interesting points and views regarding a sensitive topic (western religion). The Christmas episode is also incredibly cute, Azmaria is sooooooo adorable in that episode! Though in the dub cast, Jessica Boone does a phenomenal job with the character in general.

Hope you enjoy it, let us know what you think.

I recently took a similar chance on the box set of The Melody Of Oblivion, and while semi-interesting, it's not at all as good as I had hoped. So, I was debating for a while whether to get Chrono Crusade, but otakuden is the one who finally got me off the fence. At first, the show appeared a little too "kiddie" (despite the firearms) for my tastes, but between the discussions here and the fact that the price for the new box set dropped down to $62.99, I decided to try it.

Oh, so the extra fifty minutes in the Holiday collection consists of all the extras that were in the original single-disc releases, but not included in the first box set. I was thinking there might be some special "previously unreleased" content. Anyway, at least Episode 12 is Christmas-oriented. smile

I looked it up... it seems similar to UFO Ultramaiden Valkyrie (which I own, strangely enough), but maybe a bit more grown up. Please let us know what you think. Hopefully, it's funnier than Valkyrie, which, in my opinion, failed to realize its potential as a harem comedy.

Chrono Chrusade is phenominal. the anime was spectacularly done (and did nothing to curb my nuns with a gun fetish) and the manga is also excellent. i recommend both; two different endings. and that's all i am saying smile

The nuns in Trinity Blood are adorable (Noélle Bor is DDG), although they don't go around shooting up the place every five minutes. Then there's Eda in Black Lagoon, who does go around shooting up the place every five minutes. Are there any other gun-nun shows that I haven't seen? I dare say your fetish could be contagious.

Speaking of Trinity Blood... he's not a nun (nor is he human), but Tres Iqus can strike quite a pose when wielding a firearm.

I couldn't even finish this. No it's not more grown up than Valkyrie (guessing since i haven't seen). In the transformation scenes i couldn't tell if she was doing magic girl trasformation or if it was to a mecha outfit (she has one of them too). And that android friend that was also an eating machine...didn't even know that it was an android until i looked it up and found out. Pass this one by.

Excel Saga

laugh Looking forward to Grenadier after reading your guys/gals opinions on the series. I've seen a few episodes of Fantastic Children as well and thought it would be a good pick up from the bargain bin. Excel Saga looks WAY too funny to not pick up. Hell Girl is reviewed good on some sites and bad on others so I thought I'd give it a shot, super cheap from the bargain bin as well so why not?

My last order for awhile as Christmas shopping has begun as well but couldn't pass up while this awesome bargain bin sale has been extended.

i really enjoy Jigoku Shoujo, from the first season and on into the third season which is showing in japan right now, if it didn't just finish.

excel saga is crack on speed X infinity.

Fantastic Children is mesmerizing, though the dub isn't as good as what Bandai usually puts out. personally, i recommend the sub especially for this one, but tis up to the individual.

Click to reveal..
I wouldn't go so far as to say Requiem From The Darkness is merely style over substance, but the substance part could use some work. I like all of the characters, and some of the plots of the individual episodes are interesting, but the overall story is a little dull... "Hell Girl Light" is the phrase that comes to mind. Despite the style, there's no feeling of creepiness or horror at all. There's some violence and gore, and while it's appropriate when used, it doesn't elicit fear. The animation style and character movements remind me of Afro Samurai, although it's not exactly the same.

The episodes do play a lot like Hell Girl. The main characters are similar to Ai and her crew, in that they're supernatural, and they get directly involved in sending souls to the next world. But, contrary to Hell Girl, all of those who are sent to the next world deserve it in Requiem From The Darkness. As a whole, the show isn't as suspenseful or creepy as its individual elements would suggest.

I love the opening and closing themes, but they don't fit the series at all. The closing theme makes me feel as though I were on a date at a jazz club, drinking martinis, while outside, the snow gently floats to the ground to the sounds of the piano and saxophone. It's nice, but inappropriate. Sometimes, contrast works; here, it doesn't. The show and the theme music kill each other's moods. The music within the show fits, though. By contrast, the opening theme for When They Cry sets the tone and prepares you for the creepiness that is to come.

So, while I don't hate Requiem From The Darkness, I was disappointed.

I believe I can agree with you on every point about 'Requiem From the Darkness' I was a little disappointed myself. It easily could have had more depth, creepiness and dread. That would have made a more interesting series.

Recently ordered:
Black Cat 4
Bludgeoning Angel Dokuro-chan
Girls High 3
Negima 5
Princess Tutu box set
Pumpkin scissors 5
That finishes out three more series for me.

Your exactly right about Requiem From The Darkness Stefanie. If I had the brain power that you had, thats about what I would of said.

About Interlude, well, I don't have a great vocabulary, and I'm not too good with putting my words the way I really want. It's very nice, story is nice, you get a decent build of character emotion, theres a little love involved, and is kinda science-fictiony. At $8 and only 27 or so left, I'd recommend it.

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 12/11/08 03:49 PM

Well to be honest, the whole "Seinfeld of anime" description of it that I got at first didn't exact make it scream out that it was must-see anime (I was never into Seinfeld's kind of humor). I have seen a few episodes online and I did think parts of it was pretty funny, but there were also parts of it that left me feeling like I was on the outside of an in-joke. I know a reasonable amount about anime, but some of the jokes and references I just couldn't get because I had no idea what was being talked about. I mean way back in the day when I first saw Project A-Ko, I didn't understand any of the references and inside jokes, but it still had me laughing 'til it hurt. So, I suppose that's why I'm on the fence about Lucky Star for now.

Yeah, Lucky Star doesn't look very pleasing to me. "Teenie bopper-ish" sums it up real nice smile. I mean REALLY teenie bopperish too.

I know a reasonable amount about anime, but some of the jokes and references I just couldn't get because I had no idea what was being talked about. I mean way back in the day when I first saw Project A-Ko, I didn't understand any of the references and inside jokes, but it still had me laughing 'til it hurt. So, I suppose that's why I'm on the fence about Lucky Star for now.


I thought 'Azumanga Daioh' was the "seinfeld of anime".laugh
Anyways, I thought saying a show was like Seinfeld meant that it was about nothing. A show without a main plot.
'Project A-Ko' is an awesome and funny anime. It was one of the first in my library. The soundtrack rocks too.grin

I've seen Azumanga Daioh as well, I certainly enjoyed that one. Though I did have one quip with it. This seemed like an anime that could have gone on for much longer, but in the end it rushed through three years of high school in only 26 episodes. Still, I might be more inclined to purchase that before I get Lucky Star.

Azumanga Daioh remains a favorite series of mine. It doesn't matter what is going on, if I really need a laugh I can always put in any random volume of that series and be guaranteed to laugh. Even the dub cast was excellent for the most part (we won't talk about KVD as Osaka).

Azumanga Daioh is very different beast from Lucky Star. While both are a bit of a slice-of-life comedy, Lucky Star is clearly targeted at a more otaku centric audience than Azumanga Daioh.

I was happy to see that there are a couple episodes on comcast VOD under anime network for this exact reason.

I had no problem with Kira Vincent-Davis as Osaka, so am I to assume that aren't a fan of southern accents being used in English dubs? Or was it just for this character in particular?

I'd have to agree. I'm somewhat sensitive to various American accents and don't always find them agreeable but Kira's performance was pretty much what sold me on the Texan accent as the standard for an implicit Osakan regional accent.

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 12/13/08 02:03 PM

I normally don't have issues with southern accents being used in dub casts (and it makes sense to use them for dialects such as Osakan), I just really didn't care for that particular one. *shrugs*

I'll agree also. Dialects are tricky when it comes to anime. But I think the southern approach to Osakans is appropriate considering how the Japanese themselves think about anyone from Osaka. It's alot like how we have southern cliches here.

If I'm wrong, please tell me how so, and spoil away if need be.


how can something that spoofs Galaxy Express 999 (and quite a few older shows as well) be teenie-bopperish? shoot, teenie-boppers don't even know the names of anime from 5 years ago, much less 10, 15, or 20 years ago. plus, Lucky Star is perfect dry humor, almost on par with Ichigo Mashimarro in that respect. granted, they are high-schoolers, but the script writing and seiyuus pull it off with adult mature aplomb. probably the best anime/otaku/japan spoof anime i have seen in a long time.

Excel Saga - now that was sophomoric and teenie-bopper. Lucky Star is art, imnsho laugh

i am waiting for a boxset because that's pretty much all i buy, but it will be so worth it!
Posted by: Stefanie

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 12/15/08 12:19 PM

If Lucky Star is more sophisticated than Excel Saga (which I actually like, especially Hyatt's dying routine), then that's a good thing. Would you say it's on par with Genshiken, in that regard?
Posted by: Otaku Review

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 12/15/08 08:01 PM

I would say that Genshiken is much more reality based while Lucky Star is much more tongue in cheek parody comedy. It's much more sophisticated than Excel Saga but it never runs into a problem with taking itself seriously.

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 12/15/08 09:57 PM

I can't say I'm off the fence yet on Lucky Star, I'm getting closer, but I'll hold out for a box set if I do get it. At the least I know that since Bandai is handling it, that the DVD extras won't get stripped out of the box set (or so I've heard).

xxxHolic volumes 4,5 and 6.

By the way, how do you guys pronounce it? When doing searches for it on the Right Stuf website, you have to do the whole 'xxxHolic' thing, but the show refers to itself as just 'Holic'. So, do I have to say x-x-x-holic, or can I just call it 'Holic'?
Posted by: Stefanie

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 12/16/08 11:23 AM

My understanding is that it's just "Holic," and "xxx" represents a variable ("insert addiction here"). Maybe the others here will know more about it.

Fun series, by the way. smile

GREETINGS!!! Well I've always just said x-x-x-Holic. And welcome to the Anime Today forums. grin

I'm still on the other side of the fence when it comes to Lucky Star. It'll take some real pushing to get me ON the fence, let alone over it. I mean, I don't have anything against it and its not like I won't like it. I just can't start thinking about another anime where there's a whole line up of anime thats gonna get bought via this dang wallet-draining Christmas sale. mad.... laugh

according to the fine ladies of CLAMP during their interview at Anime Expo last year, it is pronounced "Holic". the xxx is silent.

pocky points for you smile

otakureview is right on when he says Genshiken is based in college reality while Lucky Star is based in more of a high-school reality. both are far more mature and advanced then excel saga though. i'm not saying excel saga isn't enjoyable, but it was meant to be sophomoric and at that it succeeds beautifully.

lucky star, while not taking itself too seriously, still requires you to pay attention at all times for there is so much going on. the writers and animators did a superb job.

Next order, go ahead and get Witchblade. Don't expect to see T. S. Eliot's name listed in the credits, just enjoy the action, fan service, bad jokes, and a few tear-jerking (if somewhat predictable) emotional scenes. It's a fun show, and the characters are likeable. Oh, and if you're a speeder like me, the battle music is fun to drive to! lol

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 12/23/08 06:29 AM

Alpha,

As far as Blue Gender goes, I would personally recommend it. I know it isn't necessarily for everyone, but I really enjoyed it (skip the movie though, not worth watching really.)

Maburaho I have yet to finish, but I did watch the first 3 (of 5) discs (I think that covers 15 episodes of the series) and, after the episode where he uses up his magic the show has become entirely forgettable. I'm hoping it will pick up again, but I haven't been able to bring myself around to finishing it.

Suzuka I have seen the first 4 episodes of and bought the box set shortly after. I really enjoyed it, and if you are in the mood for a romance/comedy/drama it will probably do an excellent job in that regard. My understanding is the characters do things which make them a bit less likable later in the series, but I'm okay with that.

The first disc of Shuffle is fun, which is all I have seen. Where it goes from there I can't say.

As for the rest, haven't seen them so I can't pass anything along (though I did get Negima a few days ago, I haven't had a chance to check it out yet.)

I've actually seen a couple(5-7) on um.....some odd channel. I think it's called the Independent Films channel. It was a long time ago, but I D/Led the first ep for my iPod, and it got me interested.

I actually watched the whole series of Blue Gender via Toonami/Adult Swim/whatever when it aired. I have the movie, and its just a shortening of it. I really do need the series tho. Already knew Suzuka was a romance, Maburaho is kinda meh/kinda I'm interested, Shuffle looks pretty fun yeah, and Negima I've only heard good things, but I still haven't gotten enough info.

If you're interested in Maburaho I'd say go for it. It's a very typical harem fan service series but it has more than a few good points making it worth watching (Jessica Boone, Luci Christian and Kira Vincent Davis as the female leads in the dub track being three of them ^_^).

The only thing in my "not yet watched" collection are anime that I kinda regret even buying, but it's a good thing its not that big with only two series'. Most of the things I get, I IMMEDIATELY watch. Mainly because it's stuff I am in love with. I was hoping to keep my Gurren Lagann Part 1 intact until I got more of the series (Part 2 should be coming in next week smile smile along with Code Geass Part 2 smile ), but I ran thru Armitage, Please Twins, Please Teacher, and My-HiME sooo quickly. GOD I LOVE ANIME! I have to keep stocked with something to watch otherwise I get pretty bored, and bored = wasted time. I hate wasting time. Most of the things that were on sale during the 12+ days sale were 650min shows. So I'ma be a happy man in the coming month.

With the exception of one series, I have a number of series which I picked up during a couple of the $100/25 sales and have been pushed back by newer series. That and life has gotten in the way. I used to spend at least one day a week on anime watching, but now, it is a DVD or perhaps two in a week. It makes it hard to make headway against the incoming stuff.

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 12/27/08 11:26 PM

I know your pain. I have been getting most of my watching done at night now. I have actually set aside a time to do it because I was getting so far behind.

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 12/28/08 05:06 PM

Between getting ready for work, driving to work, and actually working I spend about 12-16 hours of my day not at home so I have very little anime watching time aside from the weekends where I will usually try to cram in several discs if at all possible. Of course, for the past several weeks I've been busy with other items on the weekends which means even less anime time.

Right now I am down to getting to watch maybe 1-2 discs every week, and considering my pile of stuff that I haven't touched yet, at this pace I could watch 2 discs a week and keep myself going for about 3 years.

Hey GreenGel, I'm right there with you. Ever since I started going to college, while taking a part time job, my time to watch my anime dvds has decreased a lot. I,ve also got a bunch of Anime that I still haven't touched.

My issue is that I don't get to just watch all of my anime; gotta watch it, take notes, review it, publish, link up, etc, etc. It takes quite a long time and working 40 hour weeks and trying to keep up my writing is terribly difficult to do. But you do what you have to in order to live the dream. ^_^

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 12/28/08 09:14 PM

Try what I do, follow the example of EGM's highly esteemed video game reviewer seanbaby who only writes reviews about the bad ones. You know, to warn people off of them. wink

Only downside is you've got to force yourself to play really bad video games you don't like, or are just laughably bad. And with anime it means forcing yourself to sit through an entire series/OVA/movie you simply don't like. But it's not all bad, really does help you to develop the skills needed to effectively communicate the reasons behind why you don't like something.

word. Blue Gender is good. it's dirty, gritty, and rather raw in its very realistic portrayal of war and soldiers, especially the not so nice side of it all. it's not a clean war, and when you're born and bred to fight and kill, it's not the same as something "on the side".

and yes, the movie was horrid. avoid like the plague -.-

When you're laid off-0 hrs. Normally it's 35-45. Around here most companies cut back on payroll this time of year to try to keep within the yearly budget that they are given, otherwise i would have gone back to my old job for a couple of months just to get me through the winter. However they are a comp. where if you get 40hrs late Wed. or early Thurs. you get sent home for the week 'til Mon.

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 12/30/08 10:16 AM

009-1 was pretty good.

Right now i'm trying to wait patiently for the announcement that Pumpkin Scissors v6 is on it's way to me. There's something about having an incomplete series collection...
Posted by: GreenGel

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 12/31/08 08:23 AM

I picked up 009-1 strictly for the box a few weeks ago. I haven't watched it yet but the little attache case is just awesome.

Moving on:

I just grabbed Scryed from the Weekly Specials. Also picked up Love*Com the Movie from Weekly Specials as well. My sister has been unsure about getting the manga for a while as normally I will buy 1-2 volumes to start and check things out from there.

Since she normally reads the last few pages of a volume to get a feel for how things end on that volume she told me not to get them yet as she didn't want to be stuck waiting for more with how the second volume ends. Since I just bought the first 6 volumes of the manga, I figured grabbing the movie would be a nice way to pass the time as well.

Of note: This is my first live-action purchase from RightStuf, and will be my first live-action subtitled viewing.

Congratulations mlc mlc. Both of those are series I have not seen (I've seen the first episode of Elfen Lied) but have heard good things about.

Try and make sure you have some room to store all the DVDs. You don't want to end up like me with a massive pile of shows and nowhere to stick them (though yesterday I went to Ikea and picked up a bunch of shelving which should clear up that problem.)

I love the opening theme for Elfen Lied. It's one of those few intros that I don't fast forward past when I'm watching multiple episdoes.

I was thinking of getting a PS3, but maybe later. Christmas and New Years just passed and I'm broke. Plus the only one big reason I got a XBOX 360 was to Halo 3. Anyways, thanks for the tip.

Burst angle

I was never much the fan of this one after reading some reviews, seeing some screen grabs, and just generally not much of a mech kind-a-guy. But after watching the first 4 episodes on-demand last night I figured it would be worth a buy. So I just did.

This is silly I know. Everytime I get a box delivered to the house I can feel myself get a little excited. I know what's in the box, but I still get that feeling even though I've received hundreds of boxes before. I open the box and won't look at the invoice. Instesd, I pull each item out one at a time and look at it carefully. I always seem to be alone when this is happening too. I think I just described myself as a junkie.laugh

Burst Angle complete +OVA

It’s corny, cheesy, a lot of the VAs were just hams, and any number of other food references there are out there.

But any way, it was pretty cheesy. And there was the typical fan service for this type of anime. The story was broken pretty bad in places leaving me to ask "What? Why did they do that? Who is that guy and how did we get to this point?"

That being said, it was a fun one for me to watch. If you are not expecting too much from it and you just want something to switch your brain off and watch some things get shot and blown up....... this is a good one for that. And ooooooooo that funky OP song. Still got that thing in my head.

Magical Project S vol. 1,2

This has been on my wish list for awhile. I just recently watched Mihoshi Special/Pretty Sammy OVA (better than expected). My plan was to purchase Pretty Sammy Debut! and rent Pixy Misa Finale. My rental service shipped out disc 1-2 of Pixy Misa Finale but disc 1 never arrived. Now there's a long wait for disc 1 so I just decided to buy Pixy Misa Finale as well.

Question, Kurau: Phantom Memory individual dvds are licensed by Funimation and Kurau: Phantom Memory box set is licensed by ADV, do they have different dubs and why are they licensed separately? PLZ ASSIST! laugh

ADV lost the license to Kurau: Phantom Memory and Funimation picked up the license, everything like Dub and Sub would be the same.

And you got it wrong individual dvds are released by ADV, and the boxset is released by Funimation

I sent Funimation an email to get Last Exile on Blue-Ray, I really like Last Exile.

I was actually looking at Mahoromatic: Automatic Maiden or Magic Knight Reyearth, which your getting really cheap. Dividing the price into the minutes, I'm used to getting usually above a 10 with sales, but Reyearth is like 37. In all honesty I'm more interested in Mahoromatic, but I'm a Super Sucker for sales and getting my moneys worth of time(minutes).

Well I can tell you for sure that Mahoromatic is a good series, though I'd say how the 2nd season ended left much to be desired. I've been looking to get hold of Magic Knight Rayearth as well. Its a bit of an older series but I've heard good things about it. Makes me wonder how it didn't get on TV in the US and Canada back in the day.
Posted by: Gevin

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 02/14/09 01:00 PM

I ordered Mahoromatic (both) during the ADV sale that allowed the discount to apply to preorders.
I'm uncertain about Rayearth. I think I'll look through the weekly offers once more.

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 02/20/09 07:28 AM

I haven't seen quite a bit of what's on your list, but here's my take on what I have:

Originally Posted By: Alpha_Zeon

4. Chobits DVD Box 2

I really enjoyed Chobits. A lot of people seem to think the anime adaptation was a bit weak compared to the manga, from what I've read. I haven't yet read the manga (I do own all the volumes though) so I can't say if that is definitely true, but going into it without having read the manga, I really enjoyed it.

Quote:
11. Elemental Gelade DVD Box Set

I only watched the first disc of this via Netflix. It was not amazing, but I did like it well enough that I am probably going to pick this set up during the sale for myself.

Quote:
12. Familiar of Zero, The DVD Box Set

I love this show. I haven't seen the two other seasons of the show yet, but I hope they get licensed as I loved this first season. Be aware that Louise (our female lead) is a tsundere. If you have seen Shakugan no Shana at all, or have watched any of Toradora you know the character type (Shana is one.) That said Louise blows them all away with how mean she is/how much she beats up the male lead. If that type of comedy isn't your thing, it might be better to skip it.

Quote:
13. Fate/Stay Night DVD Box Set

I only watched the first disc of this show so far (though I do own the box set.) I really enjoyed the first disc and am interested in seeing where the show goes. Based only on the first disc, it feels like it might be a strong title.

Quote:
18. Gungrave DVD Box Set (Hyb) (Thinpak)

Another one where I haven't watched the full series yet even though I own it. That said, I love what I've seen of it. Gungrave just has near endless amounts of "cool" in it.

Quote:
19. Karin DVD Complete Series Box Set

Karin was a show that surprised me by being so much better than my expectations. I didn't hold out any strong hopes for this one, but I was pleasantly surprised by the wonderfully sweet story. If you want a fairly light, fluffy show to make you feel good, this is a good one to go with.

21. Mahoromatic: Summer Special DVD

Haven't yet watched the summer special, nor have I watched all of the first season, but what I've watched of the show so far was good. I've heard the show gets dark/depressing later on, but the first disc was fun and amusing, and I imagine this special is probably the same way.

27. Shakugan no Shana DVD Box Set

The series is good and definitely a strong choice and worth the buy. That said this particular show did not hit me as strongly (as far as cast of characters goes) as Familiar of Zero. Your results may vary.

30. Strawberry Marshmallow DVD Box Set
As was said, if you like Azumanga Daioh, pick it up. I haven't seen enough of the series to comment to much beyond that, but what I watched seemed like a strong choice.

I raided the TRSI bargain bin. I had bought the first disc (with Box) of Kare Kano used for $5 and well I decided to get the rest of the show. So I ended up buying:

Koi Kaze: 2-3
Kaleido Star: New Wings singles (1-6)
To Heart: 1-4

I am set for some serious anime watching, although I have been in the middle doing just that lately. smile

I think you'll enjoy Koi Kaze, but it depends on how you feel about the subject matter. It was said by someone somewhere that this series "heartwarming and disturbing" at the same time. I can't say much about the other two. I've seen two trailers for Kaleido Star. One that was the standard stuff ADV used to do, random clips set to music from the series, and a much better 2nd one that made it seem like it should have been the next big thing. It was hard to believe both were about the same show. Haven't seen or heard a single thing about To Heart, just like the majority of RightStuf/Nozomi's licenses.

Also, my box set for Tenjho Tenge arrived, and Love Hina is on the way. I ordered them at the same time, but I guess that's what I get for waiting 'til the next to last day for pre-orders.

I had misgivings about the whole subject matter of Koi Kaze but a friend assured me that if you can get over the ick factor of the incest it's not a bad show.

I have trouble getting past that stuff when minors are involved. For me, that's the one "ick factor" with which I'll always have problems (and not just in anime). When all of the characters involved in "eyebrow-raising" situations are adults, I really don't care what they do, as long as it's relevant to the story and/or establishing their personalities. I haven't read anything about Koi Kaze, but now that you've brought it up, I'll be sure to do my homework before considering a purchase.

Without question, Koi Kaze has a very high "ick factor" going for it, not only is there the age issue, there's also the incest issue as well. Now, I am not in favor of either one, but I still managed to enjoy the series. I think what saved this, was the fact that they never glorified it. It was treated in a very realistic manor. Never once did it ever attempt to make the incest or age factors seem okay. The male lead struggles with both throughout the series, otherwise it would have fully dove into "ick" territory.
Posted by: Tsunami3k

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 02/20/09 10:24 PM

Someone showed the first episode of Koi Kaze at our local Japanese festival a few years back and I was intrigued enough to buy it without really knowing where it was going. I finally got around to watching it last summer and found it to be quite enjoyable particularly because it was thought-provoking. The age issue I'm willing to overlook because A) it was consensual and B) the notion that Western and Japanese standards for coming of age are quite different is no new revelation.

As for the incest factor, the whole point of the show is that it's a drama about forbidden love; Western and Eastern taboos coincide rather closely on this topic. I've seem several mature and generally positive reviews of Koi Kaze but I've also stumbled across several rants regarding this title were the subject matter clearly touched a nerve with the viewer (including one podcast in which the reviewers reveled in the fact that they destroyed the artbox, DVD and case in their back yard). For some, the hellfire spills forth before they realize that this is not a recruitment video promoting the intrigue and excitement of a forbidden relationship. It is a mature and empathetic look about people who are tortured by their emotions and struggle throughout to find some resolution between their overwhelming feelings and the expectations of the world.

This is simply not a show for those who are unable to unable to set aside all the preconceived baggage that comes along with such an admittedly controversial topic like this, and they should simply avoid it, but anyone who is confident that they can look at it objectively (and who also enjoys dramas) will most likely find this an enjoyable show.

What I found most interesting was how the portrayal managed the difficult challenge of encouraging the viewer to empathize with the main characters without ever condoning their decisions. In fact we're reminded throughout by several supporting characters that this is decidedly not acceptable behavior.

Another possible downside to the show is that Saeki spends much of the time being a jerk. It's a fairly common trope in anime for guys to lash out or act like asshats when they're stressed or feeling emotionally cornered (think Hibiki from Vandread) but I'm a big fan of character-growth stories (so I think this bothers me more that most); Saeki had a boatload of growing to do and, for much of the time, did far too little of it. There's the expected watershed moment when the duress is lifted and he settles into a much more likable role, so there is some redemption, but we only get to see a little of it.

Just got back from another trip to MovieStop. No sales this time. frown But, I picked up The Slayers season one and Planetes complete collection. I had been wanting to get The Slayers so at least I've gotten started on it. Planetes on the other hand I just picked up because it was the complete collection and the price tag said $16.99, but it was actually only $7.99. Not a bad little haul, two more series added to the collection and I spent less than 30 bucks.

Hey guys, I'm thinking of getting all the volumes for the anime, Last Exile. Is it worth buying? Is it a good anime?
I'll most likely get it because it's so cheap, but I want to see what you guys think before I actually purchase it.
Posted by: Tsunami3k

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 02/22/09 09:04 AM

Absolutely. Last Exile is a great show. For the visuals alone it's worth the full price so if it's cheap then go for it. My only minor gripe is that the end wraps things up rather abruptly but the joyride in getting there more than makes up for it.
Posted by: zentropa

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 02/22/09 10:52 AM

The Last Exile is one of my favorite series of all time. It's got very good animation quality (some of the best i've ever seen) and a fairly epic storyline that kind of sucks you in. It reminds me a lot of taking a Final Fantasy or Grandia game and turning it into an anime series.

The story starts off feeling a bit "kiddie" but develops into something much bigger, which helps give it appeal to all ages.

I was really happy to see the new re-release has an MSRP of $50 (pre-order of $37ish) as this is a series that I recommend to a lot of people.
Posted by: Hobby Ninja

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 02/22/09 10:53 AM

I will recommend Last Exile as well. It has an epic quality to the story with lots of tense moments. The designs by Range (both character and technical) are of course excellant and allow you to be swallowed up in his fantasy world. He really creates a functional looking reality. The whole feel of the series is more cinematic than most animes with an outstanding soundtrack to boot. The english dub is also well done.
I would like to have my own vanship.smile

Allright, with all your reccomendations, I can now put Last Exile on my "must buy list." Thank you everyone.

Just have a question. Does anyone know if any of these come with the Artbox to hold all seven volumes?

Last Exile DVD 3-Pack (Discs 1-3) DVD (Hyb)
Last Exile DVD Flight Pack Bundle (Hyb) (Discs 1-4) (w/box)

Posted by: kakashi12210

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 02/22/09 09:16 PM

I'm pretty sure the Last Exile DVD 3-Pack (Discs 1-3) DVD (Hyb) is just the first 3 dvds in plastic wrap just like the Chobits 3-Pack (Discs 1-3).

But as for the Last Exile DVD Flight Pack Bundle (Hyb) (Discs 1-4) (w/box) I don't know. I was wondering the same thing. If not then you could get the 1st dvd that comes with an art box, that one might hold all 7 of them.
Posted by: Chrisc

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 02/22/09 09:17 PM

If you look at the running time of "Last Exile DVD Flight Pack Bundle (Hyb) (Discs 1-4) (w/box" its only about 300 minutes long.

Only this one on Rightstuf has all 7 volumes:

Last Exile DVD Box Set (Hyb) (Limited)

Or you can preorder Funis boxset:

Last Exile DVD Complete Series Box Set (Hyb)

Ditto Hobby Ninja. That's about the way I would explain certain situations in Loveless and I My Me! Strawberry Eggs. If the age factor is handled in a similar way in Koi Kaze, then maybe I won't have to avoid it. Incest, per se, as a story element, is a non-factor for me. The "who" part concerns me more than the "what" part. Thanks for the explanation, Tsunami3k.

No worries. As with anything, I just wanted to offer some context so that it could be fairly evaluated. There's no getting around the fact that it encompasses two rather dicey issues at least one of which isn't going to fly for some people now matter how careful the portrayal. I think Geneon/Pioneer went out on a limb with this one and gave the American audience a bit more credit than perhaps we've progressed to thus far and I'd hate to see them get burned any more than they already likely did by their overestimation of us.

Even if an off-beat show like this doesn't make it onto my "Top N" list (and most, including this one, don't), I'd still rather see more thought-provoking, introspective titles make it to our shores than yet another "guaranteed to at least break-even" [Insert Shonen Cut-N-Paste Series Here] so I prefer to reward them for being daring. (Not that I don't enjoy those as part of the mix too but they're plenty prevalent as-is.) I realize, however, that my hopes and expectations of the industry don't necessarily coincide with the average anime fan but I like to believe that there are others with a similar outlook.

I hate to say it but if you're still worried about not liking it when it's $6 a volume then it may be better to pass on this one. There are other anime in the sea.

I think I'm glad to hear that it's a very manual process to find out. Perhaps you can empathize after doing what I myself fear to do but I suspect I'd be found rocking inconsolably in a corner somewhere mumbling incoherently about not having instead spent the money on some number of Ford Focuses (Focii?) and filling them with chips and salsa...*just because I can*... smirk I'm kidding of course. I'd fill one of them with cheese dip.

Yeah, that's just wrong to cancel the very last one. It's bad enough midway through a series (Wallflower anime, Gunslinger Girl manga - both ADV), but with one lousy volume remaining, they should've followed through with the commitment. Those who bought the five previous LEs have a right to be upset with Bandai, economic realities be damned.

Posted by: long time lurker

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 02/25/09 01:44 PM

Yeah but see the thing about it is this. They HAD to have already taken the time and money to get everything finalized. The shirt production HAD to be started and enough to put the first shipment together. All the packaging had to be ready for first run if not completely assembled by the time they made this announcement. I would even be willing to bet that they had the first run already in shipping crates considering the release date. So why not go ahead and just get the stuff out the door that has already been produced and make it an extremely limited run?

No no, there is something else going on here. My guess would be that they had another problem with the producers. Bandai is still fighting quality problems. There was something very wrong with that release that they didn't have the money to fix so they decided not to and just cancel it. But why they wouldn't admit to this fact, if it is in fact the case, is beyond me.

True, at least fans will get to watch the whole series, but the collectors, who supported Bandai by purchasing the first five LEs, were screwed over.

Yes they are going to so the series will be completed. I don't understand why they put five of them out and wait until the very last one and then cancel it. An alternative Bandai could've done was (my thinking here) come out with an artbox instead of the LE. Just a little something to meet the fans halfway.

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 02/25/09 03:13 PM

Only the Lucky Star special edition volume 6 got canceled. The Standard dvd volume 6 is still in stores. I think you should email Bandai.

That sucks you can't get your:

- Misoji Misaki CD
- Motteke Sailor Fuku Re-mix 001 CD
- Cheerleader Uniform T shirt

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 02/25/09 03:31 PM

The standard disc comes as an individual disc. The LE comes with a lot of extras : for example Lucky Star LE vol 1 here comes with an artbox and extras that the standard discs don't, though the disc content i believe is still the same.

And really, how much you spend on anime doesn't exactly determine if your an Otaku or crazy anime fan. You could just have a few titles and still like anime just as much as the next guy/girl. I only did that just to see how much of my income went to anime.

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 02/25/09 04:53 PM

I understand the grudge. I'm just pointing out that they are still releasing a legitimate Region 1 DVD end to the series with dub.
It's clearly a punch in the face to those that invested & trusted Bandai, not to mention it was a stupid business move. The alternative options available to them are plentiful, yet they chose this course, found out too late into production that it was a financial mistake, & did nobody any favors by spitting in the fanbase's collective face.

..But at least you get to collect the entirety of the series legitimately & with dub. I'd think that's most important.

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 02/25/09 08:07 PM

I loved the CDs more than any other part of the LEs. Granted, I was excited about the volume 6 shirt too. I am very upset that the investment in my compulsion has been so handedly dashed. After Pre-ordering all 6 volumes, it is very upsetting to not have the last LE on my shelf.

Exactly. I hope no one thinks I was bragging. Spending an obscene amount of money on something doesn't mean anything, except that you wanted to do it. There is alot of other things I could be spending money on. I constantly have to remind myself that I can't have everything. I think all of us spend as much as we are capable and comfortable with.
For the record I fall within the Otaku catagory.smile

My feelings excatly. I love anime and would go broke buying it but as a stuggling college student I must constantly remind myself other things come first. Anime and my general Otaku-ness is just a hobby. Although Rightstuf does make the not spending too much on animne hard sometimes with there awesome sales. lol

BTW I just bought Kiddy Grade box set, Black Lagoon box set and steamboy Directors cut.

You know, it's funny. I spent more on anime back when I was a broke college student before I became a working professional. More money != more anime all the time.

I still love it, though.

Just like any other old show, that wasn't that popular. The license probably has expired and the title went out of print.

I've had all of Slayers for years, as for the Dirty Pair-i even have the 26 episode tv series that started it all on R2 dvds imported from japan that cost me a small fortune-I just got my copy of Tweeny Witches (Maho Shouto Tai Arisu) the Adventures (ovas)-if you've not seen this series-you should.

Starship Operators was good and the OST was also pretty good listening. It has a good ending too, I think confused

Both are good series with simular themes of tragic events. (There is a scene in Geneshaft about what happens to one of the characters still makes me shiver.) I actually enjoyed Starship Operators a little better and the OST is great.

Bleh... knew I shouldn't have gone out to Best Buy today. I picked up Negima! along with the Spring & Summer Specials OVA set. Blame it on Love Hina, I guess I was in the mood for more stuff from Ken Akumatsu. wink

Negima!? does offer a richer art style, though.

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 02/28/09 08:16 PM

Duly noted. I guess I must be in some sort of rut. I can honestly say that I'm not into the 'harem' genre of anime, yet I've bought another one. Really not sure why either, but it was a toss up between those and both seasons of Mahoromatic. Though with Mahoromatic, its a case of me making up for watching it for free online last summer. But I also thought it was good too, except for how the 2nd season ended. Maybe I'll have the rest of those taken care of before the year is over, I hope.
Posted by: Gevin

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 02/28/09 09:36 PM

To be honest, it took a whiiiiiile for Negima! to grow on me.
While it does get fairly good, I wouldn't really bother recommending it to anyone. As long as you've already got it, hopefully you'll take to it quicker than I did.

Oh, & I just ordered: Heat Guy J (1-7), The Daichis (1-3), Popotan (1-3), FMA Shumbalah(sp) movie, Koi Kaze (1-3),... & I think that's the whole order.

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 03/03/09 12:13 AM

Ugh... I did really well through February... I think I limited my anime buying to about $40 worth and a few things I picked up on store credit at a local shop that I had a bunch of credit stock-piled at.

Yesterday I fell off the wagon... bad. A local B&M store was clearing out anime at ~25% below wholesale cost and I just couldn't resist.

Afro Samurai Uncut*
Afro Samurai Resurrection Uncut
Ah My Goddess Flights of Fancy thinpak*
Black Blood Brothers thinpak*
Bleach Season 1 thinpak*
Bleach Season 2 thinpak
Coyote Ragtime Show thinpak*
Desert Punk viridian collection*
E's Otherwise thinpak
Full Metal Panic (+ Fumoffu) Heavy Metal Collection*
Full Metal Panic The Second Raid thinpak
The Girl Who Leapt Through Time
Howl's Moving Castle
Love Hina thinpak*
My Hime anime legends*
Phoenix box set
Planetes anime legends
Rahxephon (+ Movie) Grand Canon Collection*
Red Garden Part 1 thinpak
Red Garden Part 2 thinpak
Tsubasa Season 1 thinpak

I returned 9 other movies/series today as after returning from the store I logged into my banking information and had an "oh sh**" moment. Clearance sales tend to put me into "buy first, think later" mode.

* = Stuff that was replacing full volume sets, imports, or stuff I previously owned and decided to rebuy.

Pricing Stuf...
Anime can be an expensive hobby, there's no doubt about that - but the Dark Lord's going to make things a bit easier on your pocketbook - in addition to all of the great deals, the studio sales, and the bargain bin, I've lowered our everyday pricing on swaths of product throughout the store!

i got lucky and had two BB's that were participating in the 50% off sale on anime early this week,

there went another $300....

i think i need to stop for a while.......

it was interesting though in that they had the Full Metal Alchemist single disc viridian collection disc's marked at $5.99 already, so i was going to buy them all for 50% off that price, but they didnt have all of them, so instead i just bought the season 1 boxset and the two season 2 boxsets.
added Full metal panic + Fumoffu heavy metal collection
full metal panic second raid
haruhi suzumiya boxset
hellsing ultimate 1-4
black blood brothers boxset
elemental gelade boxset
banner of the stars boxset (too bad they didnt have 2 as well)
trinity blood boxset
ergo proxy boxset (purchased for a friends collection i already own it)
GITS 2 Innocence Steelbook LE
witchblade v1 + artbox (to replace my vol 1 that was a standalone)


so basically i bought ju8st about everything they had a full collection for.


the bad part is this means those two stores are basically discontinuing anime, but the good news is i have 2 others within 30 minutes that are not.

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 03/06/09 02:30 AM

No Best Buys near me are doing the sale. *cry* well, the one in Lawrence is on the list, but I am not going to drive an hour just to go look for something that may or may not be in stock.

I am quiet proud of the fact that the best buy in my old home town is not on the list. After working that section for a good 6 years and dealing with the people responsible for stocking it, it turned into what is still the best anime section of a Best Buy I have seen to date.
When I first started buying there, it was just titles tossed on a couple sections of a row with no order or anything. After working with the employees and even the guy responsible for ordering stuff it grew into 2 full rows front and back perfectly organized. They said they never expected anime to sell, but people I saw shopping there said that they never would have bought from there until it started to grow and get easy to find stuff. I am still trying to work the horrible embarrassment that is the one here local to me now. But the employees don't ever go into that section that I can tell so it is proving to be difficult.

But the fact that they are not on the list means they are not a store that is trying to rid itself of inventory and will continue to carry the full line of anime.

Thanks, I've seen a little bit or heard good things about all of them except Blue Seed and Noein. But, I figured I'd pick them up while they were on sale and give them a try.

Blue Seed was good for it's time. It has that Sailor Moon vibe to it, but the show isn't aging that well IMO. Noein is actually a pretty good title, but YMMV depending if you like the characters or not.

Thanks, I've seen a little bit or heard good things about all of them except Blue Seed and Noein. But, I figured I'd pick them up while they were on sale and give them a try.

Does anyone know if the artbox that comes with Heat Guy J vol 1 will hold all 7 dvds?


no.
it is an artbox that holds 4 total discs.

it comes with episode one and an "extras" disc.

at least that is what mine is and i just ordered it last week.

Honestly it's been so long since i've seen it that i can't say one way or the other right now. It's sitting on my "to watch" pile at the moment.

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 03/07/09 10:38 AM

I've watched both before and they were ok-but I liked Video Girl Ai (same manga artist) much better-Video Girl Ai might be pretty hard to find because it's been oop for a few years-I got my copy about 5 years ago. (Found it on amazon for 30 bucks).

Found a used copy of Video Girl Ai and should have that in soon. Also ordered a copy of Saikano and Saikano OVA. Got both for about $30 new. Why this is going for $80 new just about everywhere i don't know.

Because Viz has discontinued the title and is now OOP.

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 03/10/09 06:26 PM

So i was fortunate to get those titles for the price i did? Well considering that was able to get those Saikano titles NEW i won't complain (as long as they work fine). smile I guess i'll find out later this week.

Posted by: LuckySeven

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 03/11/09 09:02 PM

I vaguely remember Petite Cossette being one of the anime that Geneon worked out a TV deal for, too bad it had to be FUSE of all channels. I did manage to see part of it when they aired it, but I really wasn't feeling well that day so I didn't even finish watching it. Seemed interesting enough, maybe I'll get around to it one day.

Black Cat The Complete Series

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 03/12/09 01:48 AM

I did one last pass over BB's in the area that were clearancing stuff and couldn't resist plucking up a few more titles.
Area 88, Berserk Remastered, Blue Submarine No. 6, Gantz (to replace my volumes), Kashimashi, and Suzuka came home with me. I sold $200 worth of anime box sets this week though so at least I came out ahead a little bit after last week's tirade.

Quote:

Actually... this series had an MSRP of $100 for the box set so $80 was 20% off retail hehe. The reason they're much cheaper now is that Viz liquidated what they had left (possibly due to licensing?) for super cheap (I believe $8 per set) and a bunch of them popped up. Half price books ended up with a lot of them that they were selling new for $20.

Quote:

Does anyone know if the artbox that comes with Heat Guy J vol 1 will hold all 7 dvds?


I did the same thing with Heat Guy buying the 1-3 pack + volumes 4-7. The 2 art boxes hold 4 DVD's each. Volume 1 + the art box includes a bonus DVD and is designed to hold vol 1-3. Volume 7 + the art box holds volumes 4-7. I bought the art boxes after I decided I was going to keep the series and traded in my volumes 1 and 7 at a local store.

You mean FMA Box Set 2 right? Just making sure I understand.
Posted by: Gevin

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 03/12/09 05:05 PM

The box claims "The Complete Second Season", so I believe it was meant as written/typed.
Posted by: LuckySeven

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 03/12/09 05:51 PM

That's just how Funimation labeled things. Officially they count the entire run of Full Metal Alchemist as two seasons. Same thing with 51 episodes of Kodocha that they put out, they count that as two seasons as well. I'm sure there are some more examples of them doing this, but I can't name them offhand.

Oh yeah, also just put in my order for Midori Days, Slayers Next, Slayers Try, Tenchi Muyo GXP, along with volumes 2 and 3 (with collector's tin) of Tenchi Muyo Ryo-Ohki.

Let us know what you think of Midori Days, it is personally one of my favorite series.

Debating on Galaxy Railways (to replace the wonderful viridian set i have) or Basilisk. Both are $30 for complete series w/artbox. Decisions...decisions...

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 03/13/09 11:59 AM

Ordered today...

The Familiar Of Zero DVD Box Set
Ouran High School Host Club Season 1 Part 1
Ouran High School Host Club Season 1 Part 2


I finally got around to ordering Zero, which I forgot to order last time. I hadn't planned on buying Ouran until I starting watching it on Funimation's website a couple of months ago. Now, I'm hooked.
Posted by: GreenGel

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 03/13/09 12:23 PM

Both are great shows. Ouran kept me laughing all the way through. Familiar of Zero I just adore for reasons I can't quite define.

Most definitely, I already saw the first 13 episodes through Funimation's website. So I intend on buying both parts of Ouran before the year is up.

I rewatched the first half after I bought it, and I was still laughing hysterically. Really loud in fact; so loud people came into my room to see what was so super funny.

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 03/14/09 04:38 PM

Went ahead and put an order in for the Galaxy Railways boxset. (hopefully Basilisk will stay at $30 then i'll pick it up later on). Also going to take and give a try on Maetel Legend.

On a side note : what are your thoughts on Kodocha and OHC?
Posted by: GreenGel

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 03/17/09 06:55 AM

Went out to some of the Best Buys having the sale (two are "near" me, in the sense that they are only about 1-1.5 hours away) and picked up a bunch of stuff (most just because it was cheap, though some I did want anyway.)

Picked up:

Howl's Moving Castle
Spirited Away
Black Blood Brothers
Burst Angel
Ghost in the Shell: SAC
Jyu-Oh-Sei
Ergo Proxy
Moribito part 1
Ghost Slayer Ayashi part 1
Yu Yu Hakusho season 3

That is all I can remember, though there may have been another couple of series as well.

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 03/18/09 04:13 PM

There are a couple of copies on Amazon used for $35. I finally got a copy a few weeks ago for under $20. I'm glad I went ahead and got it.smile

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 03/19/09 01:11 PM

Picked up from Bandai sale:

Argentosoma complete collection
Eureka Seven collection 1
Fantastic Children collection
Ghost Slayer Ayashi part 2
Gundam 00 season 1 part 1 SE
Sword of the Stranger (Blu-ray)

Also grabbed (non-Bandai):

World of Narue collector's box set

There are a couple of other Bandai titles I was thinking about, but I wasn't quite sure if I wanted to get them or not:

Ghost in the Shell: Innocence (Blu-ray)
Kurokami collection 1
Gundam 08th MS Team (I watched this when it was on TV and enjoyed it)
Witch Hunter Robin
Wolf's Rain

I'll have to try and decide whether these are worth it before the end of the sale (any thoughts please let me know.)
Posted by: Hikari

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 03/19/09 03:03 PM

Wolf's Rain is one of what I consider classic must-have anime. It has a really great story, artwork, ... well everything. (except the opening theme song which grates on my nerves) I fully recommend it.

Eureka Seven DVD Complete Collection 1 (Hyb) Anime Legends ------------- Well I would of bought the inidvidual dvds, but I'd save more money/shelf space with this Complete Collection.
FLAG DVD Complete Collection (Hyb) - Anime Legends ------------------------- Didn't REALLY peak my interest when I saw some of the eps at AWA 08', but I am going all out with this Bandai Sale grin.
Gundam SEED Destiny DVD Collection 2 (Hyb) - Anime Legends ----------- Been waiting AGES for this.
Gundam SEED Destiny OVA DVD (Hyb): Final Plus --------------------------- It'll be nice to see an alternate ending smile.
Gundam SEED DVD Movie Trilogy Box Set + CD ------------------------------- Meh, I'm buying this more for the friggen CD than the movies, but they are a plus I guess laugh.

Scryed (S-cry-ed) DVD Complete Collection (Hyb) --------------------------- It was an ok show.

Zegapain DVD Complete Collection (Hyb) - Anime Legends ------------------ I saw a few eps at AWA 08', seem good enough to check out.

Welcome Agent Orange smile

Looks like a pretty nice lot in that picture. Neither of the 2 BBs I went to had that great of a stock.

The Girl Who Leapt Through Time is a great movie, if you haven't seen it yet I highly recommend it.

The only others I have seen from that picture are Black Cat and Coyote Ragtime Show (which I've only watched the first few episodes of.) Black Cat is decent, but is not a show I have any desire to watch again soon (I was hoping to like it much more than I did.) What I've seen of Coyote Ragtime Show I really enjoyed though.

I bought it off amazon for less.

just as i am starting to do with more and more of my purchases.

in fact, I've bought a LOT of anime from Shawnek (rightstuff) cheaper off amazon than the RS website.

i tend to check amazon first now.

(and no, im not buying bootlegs off amazon).

Maybe you didn't get there fast enough? And Planetes is bloody awesome-I have a rule of thumb-if I see it and I want it-I get it to avoid kicking myself in the butt because I missed it. Also try Geneshaft-it's very good sci fi too.

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 04/03/09 09:33 AM

Sometimes I wonder if TRSI is plotting against me saving up my money for that PS3 or 360 that I've been planning on getting. I intended to swear off buying anything else anime wise 'til after my birthday in June, but it seems like they're gonna force my hand since I want to get that Tenchi Muyo Movie DVD Collection before it sells out for good.

No. I have that one tho. The Space Symphony Maetel is actually 13 ep story where Maetel goes back to her home planet and faces her mother once again. The reviews i've seen for it were pretty good tho i think that was for the VHS dub that came out years ago.

Aim For The Top-Gunbuster-I saw the movie and just had to have the originial series! I'm gonna track down Diebuster too. "Volume 4 of Kino's Journey will be hard to find and some resellers will want a high price for it"-funny thing, I got the thin pack of Kino's Journey a few years ago and watched maybe 3 episodes and totally lost interest in it. Wedding Peach was another matter altogether-did a marathon of it.

But seriously, all my money goes into entertainment. Anime and manga during the week, and around 50 bucks every friday for dinner and the latest movie. I haven't updated my sig in a while, but it's at least over 2000 by now.

A PS3 is much worth it. Some people can argue all they want about the 360 having a better gaming platform, but the PS3 PLAYS DVDS AND BLURAY. ADUHHHH. Anime watching muchhh? Since I bought my PS3, I have bought EASILY over 500 dollars worth of anime dvds. >.<

I love Hell Girl. Assuming that the catalog description sounds like something you'd like, go ahead and get it, because it's very well done. The animation is beautiful, the music is cool, and the individual stories are interesting.

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 04/15/09 05:34 PM

After finishing the first season as it aired on IFC I would hope that they get the 2nd season. The show started off kinda shaky but it got better as it went on.

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 04/16/09 08:15 PM

I just had 4 26ep seasons arrive, 1 13 ep partial, 1 14 ep series, & 6 anime movies arrive. All of this on top of my already rather daunting back catalogue of unwatched anime,.. I'm a bit at a loss.
I just finished one set of Naruto, I'm about to get started getting caught up with Death Note, & I'll probably follow that up with completing some other already started series. .. But all I really feel like watching is a romantic comedy. :\ There'll be time for that later, I suppose. Can't start a new series when I've got so much unfinished business to tend to.

Yeah, I contacted customer service and they claimed the fourth volume of My-Otome would probably be coming in sometime this week...which obviously didn't happen. It's too bad too because I'd really like to get the followup OVA, but I don't really want to until I have that DVD ship out. I'm tempted to just cancel but I figure if they weren't getting any in, they'd have just removed it from the site altogether.

I wasn't planning on buying anything so soon after that last purchase, but with the demise of CPM I picked up a few shows just in case I end up missing the boat and get screwed over for costs (which has already happened for a few CPM shows I might have gotten otherwise...): Silent Service, Rhea Gall Force, Darkside Blues (should have grabbed it when it was a weekly), Black Jack, Patlabor (TV, new files, and movies), Judge, Domain of Murder, and Demon City Shinjuku.

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 05/02/09 10:59 PM

Hey, I know a lot of ya'll like to pick up anime soundtracks so I figured I'd give a huge recommendation for one of my favorite anime soundtracks that happen to be in the bargain bin for $4. Arjuna. There's no j-pop or j-rock on it, just a bunch of really good kinda tribal sounding music. Seriously, for the price, it's a real steal.
I'd also like to very highly recommend the Korean teen comedy Conduct Zero. ..Very wacky wink

Ummmm... I just ordered a small handful of items (to keep this relevant) Let me see if I can remember what:
Suzuka (Viridian set)
Dragonball Z (set 9)
Kaze No Stigma (set 1)
Gotham Knight ..... the batman anime movie... BD

Hey, is it just me, or is Project Blue Earth SOS pretty expensive for just 6 eps? (27 bucks after all discounts,.. 37.49 before... 49.98 retail.)
..Has anyone seen the series? Is it outrageously good?

Will you settle for a quarter as good? lol It's cute, just don't expect much. It's rated 17+, but there are a couple of scenes that made me think it should be rated 18+. You'll know which scenes when you watch it.

I may have to watch it again now because I can't think of what scenes you are referring to. Either way I generally agree with the sentiment that it isn't as good as Excel Saga. Still funny enough, and just as out there, but not as good overall.

Was able to get a copy of Photon the Idiot Adventures. Should be in anyday.
Posted by: Ryos

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 05/17/09 08:55 AM

Grr, so much for that. Got the last copy of the Legend of the Dragon Kings box set here. I remember the first volume being fairly good so hopefully I like the rest more than I've seen in some reviews.

Edit: This is getting to be an expensive weekend. I went on a primarily NuTech shopping spree for, uh, some reason.

Dvine Luv 1-4
Koihime Box
Beast City
Fortune Quest
Mask of Zeguy
Space Pirate Mito 1-4
Angels in the Court Box
Karakuri Ninja Girl Box

Including some video game OST purchases in an unrelated order, the total damages near $400 this week! So much for cutting down on costs...But now I'm done buying stuff for a while. Um, probably.

Photon is a bloody hoot-it's from the same people responsible for Tenchi Muyo and El Hazard.

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 05/18/09 05:55 PM

Yeah, that's what i've been hearing about it. Came in today and since it's a used copy (like new!), i'll start it in the next day or two.
Posted by: Ryos

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 05/18/09 06:47 PM

Just when I thought it was safe to go to my ramen, another order appeared (shock!). Space Pirate Mito was out of stock (not a huge surprise, given the price), but I added the following NuTech crap:

Magical Kanan 3+4 (primarily because the ASM release is screwed up and they won't acknowledge it)
Genmukan 1/2
Luv Wave box

I think I need to stop going online. It's a dangerous, dangerous thing.

I have the Funimation version of Pani Poni Dash! and I was wondering am I missing much not having the A.D.Vid-notes? Would it be worth it to get the ADV dvds and sell the Funimation set?
Posted by: stargates

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 05/23/09 12:22 PM

I went and grabbed the ADV version when i had the chance. Since they are called A.D.Vid-notes Funi can't exactly put them on their dvd's. And yes they are most definately worth having. If you can snag a ADV set i would recommend it.

This title was aquired by Funimation from ADV. So i wonder if Funi will pick it up at a later date. I just wish that someone will do so, so that the series is fianlly completed.

I already own Negima! but its that viridian collection version with all the DVD extras stripped out of it. So I'm thinking of getting the original set and selling or donating the VC set.

I know how you feel. I did the same thing with the Galaxy Railways VC i had. When i got a few bucks together and got the boxset i haven't regretted it in the least. Also i have the Pani Poni Dash bundle and would highly reccommend the original ADV release hands down (especially since Funi got rid of the extras specfically the AD-Vid notes).

Nice list. Now comes the hard part, sitting down and actually finding the time to watch it. laugh


Got an e-mail today, final vol of Claymore will be in any day! It's good to see the next vol come in but also sad to see the series come to an end.

I have all the time i need to watch them i work 12 hr shifts and watch a series a day at work.
Put it this way i watch at least 1 and sometimes 2 series worth of anime in a day.
It all depends on the episode count 13 eps is about half a shift so i can watch 2 series of 13 episodes.
but a 26 episode series takes up almost all of my shift.

I've seen the first one. It's pretty good. Have A's too, but I haven't watched it yet. I have to say this though both have great intro's, And I hope it does well enough to warrant bringing Strikers and that movie over here.

For me that's easier said than done. I don't know how many times i've fallen alseep trying to watch something at the end of the day only to go and have to re-watch it again later.

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 06/30/09 08:26 AM

Same here. Weekends are great for marathons, but sometimes I can sneak in a disc at night before I get drowsy, assuming that I get home at a decent hour, decide not to cook anything, and can resist the urge to play video games. Also, I have to avoid answering the phone, because each phone call wipes out anywhere from one episode to an entire disc.

I sound so anti-social, but I'm really not. lol

Posted by: Stefanie

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 07/08/09 09:18 AM

Thank you. smile I've probably seen fewer titles than most of the members here, and I usually play it safe with my purchases, so that might explain my recommendations more than anything else. I try to eat only the icing and leave behind the cake. wink

I wouldn't say that there's a lot of bad anime out there, but there is a lot that simply doesn't appeal to me. Also, I rarely watch anime online or on television, so if I don't own it, that usually means I haven't seen it, and I own very few titles that I wouldn't enjoy re-watching.

Hayate the Combat Butler part 1

I'm not too happy that Hayate is going to be sub-only, nor am I happy with the low episode count for the price, but with the sale going on it brings it down to a better number, and it is a show that I want to see as I really like the manga.

Also renewed my Got Anime subscription, which is coming up shortly.

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 07/13/09 09:03 PM

Speaking of the Lucky Star OVA, did anyone else notice they have gone to sub-only since it was first listed. Is Lucky Star that much less profitable than was originally thought? I'm a little disappointed to have a title like this and not have a complete dub.

In any case, I somewhat expected the dub to get cut from Combat Butler Hyate but they had some pretty big plans. Not enough of a loss to prevent me from ordering both sets.
Posted by: Tsunami3k

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 07/13/09 09:23 PM

I noticed that too. Of all things I'd have guessed that they'd keep consistent with Lucky Star but I suppose that wasn't a valid presumption after Galaxy Angel got its dub gacked midway through the 4th box set which I want to say was something nearing 100 episodes by that point.

I made my buy list this weekend and, only after reviewing it, noticed that Hayate, True Tears and Sola were sub-only. It's a bit frustrating because I'm actually interested in all of these series.
Posted by: WhtHawk

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 07/13/09 10:39 PM

Yea I wondered what was happening with Galaxy Angel when I noticed that too, but when I started watching it made a bit more sense. I guess the fact there was just the 1 title left, I'm now more disappointed in Bandai since they have scrubbed the LE of DVD 6 and a dub on the OVA.

That doesn't make sense to me either. You would think that they would for 45min more just keep the dub going and finish off the series. But the only thing that i can think of is that since it's more of a bonus ep they went with a sub only release to keep costs down.


Put an order in for Samuri 7 complete boxset.

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 07/14/09 07:52 PM

I bought Samurai Champloo when it first came out. It is perhaps one of the top anime I have watched. I got the soundtracks too because the music is catchy, rythemic(?spelling). I started following Nujabes and the ring of music artists after I watched Samurai Champloo.
I think the coolest thing about Samurai Champloo is how the Tokugawa Era (edojidai 江戸時代) was blended with modern, hiphop culture. Good Job Watanebe Shinichiro, as always! cool

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 08/17/09 09:54 AM

Wicked City isn't bad, and it often comes up as a reference in conversations, but yeah, it's not as important as seeing Eva. wink

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 08/17/09 08:28 PM

I'll tell you my feelings on EVA-for me and I'm a hard core science fiction reader from way back-it's not nearly as good as most people make it out to be-I would refer you to an excellent novel by the late great Arthur C. Clarke called "Childhood's End"-most of NGE's themes look like they were lifted wholesale from this book.

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 08/18/09 02:43 AM

After reading a review on it, I decided to buy an old one from my past. Silent Service. (sub anime)
Also bought some of your discounted The Second Raid, Full metal Panic. (complete my collection)

Whether it's good, or whether one likes it, is not the point. The point is that it's something most anime fans should see. Wicked City, by contrast, isn't. FYI - I don't hate either one, but neither one is in my favorite "Top 10."

I didn't care for EVA myself. I was doing fine enjoying my anime before i went and watched EVA. Though i don't think that someone needs to see it. What about the origianl GITS movie? Can't the same thing be said about that? how people need to see this one and see how great/wonderful it was?

But you can now talk about it right? And it seems to always pop up in in depth anime conversations.

And with the release of the next 3 movies After this last one, you could say, it is not a bad thing to have under your belt.

So I would tend to agree, it is maybe not a must see, but if your going to be on the up and up on the vastly seen titles, it is not a bad title to at least see once.

Heck, If only to be able to debate how good or bad it is. =)

We'll just have to disagree on Eva, and I've stated my reasons ad nauseum in other threads. lol

Yes, the same can be said about "needing to see" the first GITS movie. Whether it was "great or wonderful" is a matter of opinion, and again, not the point (IMO).

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 08/19/09 09:16 AM

I guess my point on NGE is simply that as science fiction I've seen it done better and more interestingly before in other series-my favorite science fiction anime is the Crest/Banner Of The Stars series and Planetes.
Posted by: Stefanie

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 08/19/09 11:15 AM

You're not the first one to tell me that about Planetes. I really need to see that, and it wouldn't hurt for me to see Crest of the Stars, while I'm at it (although I haven't heard as much about that one).

Gunbuster is all kinds of awesome. Anno's other life time achievement outside of the inspired student project Diacon III it's sequel Diacon IV, Wings of Honeamese and we already mentioned Eva.

Diebuster was a worthy sequel.

If you haven't seen GSG2 it's pretty good, and follows the manga fairly well.
As for Bamboo blade, a great show, though i'm torn between getting the half season now or just wait for the boxset to come out.

Aces.
Man, it had some pretty sharp animation for it's day. Pre computer shading. Nice shadowing, and fluid movement. Also the tough gal, looks the part. She is not gorgeous, instead she is somewhat built up. The one who drinks all the time was my personal tops.
Um, it always felt like it hung at the end though. Still, for 15$ nice move.

I just bought a old copy of AKO3 Cinderella Rhapsody on VHS. (subbed) I have not seen it in a long time.

Unfortunately, those do seem to be an endangered species in R1. I guess it makes sense though, if the shows aren't selling very well, the OSTs must not be selling for beans.

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 09/16/09 10:58 AM

I've been in a shopping mood, lately. Just placed another order with TRSI for the following hybrid titles:

Rurouni Kenshin Season 2 DVD Economy Box (Hyb)
Rurouni Kenshin Season 3 DVD Economy Box (Hyb)
Sword Of The Stranger Blu-ray (Hyb)

I hadn't planned on buying Sword Of The Stranger today, but the BD is the first offer in today's "Shawne's Deal Of The Day" ($7.00 off the normal price). Also, TRSI is including an art book (with or without "SDOTD" pricing). Gotta support those hybrid BD releases. smile

Speaking of Blu-ray hybrids, has anyone seen Shigurui: Death Frenzy? It's another title that I've been considering, but I've read some mixed reviews. Any thoughts?

DVD = DVD as opposed to CD and BD

On one of my arbitrary whims I tracked down Kaze no Yojimbo too. I figure as much as I'm enjoying Case Closed and liked Mushi-shi, it should be up my alley. Actually wasn't as expensive as I thought it would be. Unlike the second half of Cardcaptor Sakura at a cool ~$270 used. Yeah...

So i tried another dvd player only to have problems come up that player as well. When a dvd player says "cannot read disc" or "unable to read" or just not play at all is not something that is all that comforting...

Have you tried a computer DVD drive, just to see whether it works at all? If it works, you could also use that to read the properties and confirm whether it's a DVD-5 or DVD-9. I agree, though, it's probably just a defective disc. frown

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 09/25/09 09:34 AM

That's something i haven't tried. I was actually using the PS2 in my room as a dvd player, then tried the dvd player downstairs in the living room. I got about 95% through the first ep (with a LOT of patience) and after that nothing really, more like hit or miss where it would actually play or skip around through out the rest of the disc. And i really wanted to try this series out too. cry

All I can say about defective discs-if one of my collection of 7 dvd and one bluray player won't play it-it's definetly bad-sometimes a computer drive will-and then again not.
Posted by: Stefanie

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 09/27/09 09:01 AM

I've had a few defective DVDs over the years (anime and otherwise), but so far, I haven't run across any defective BDs. At this point, I have more BDs (around 100 titles, some with multiple discs) than I did DVDs when I started noticing defective DVDs. It's probably just the luck of the draw, but it's interesting to note.

I think that we've all come across defective dvd's at one time or another. It's just more disappointing when it turns out to be a series that you've been wanting to see and try to enjoy. As for the BD's...(i won't say anything to jinx it!!! grin).
Posted by: Stefanie

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 09/27/09 10:55 AM

Of the defective DVDs I've had, most have been damaged by poor packaging (which is why I love thinpaks), as opposed to actual manufacturing defects, but I've had those, too. Yes, it is a let-down when you're excited about watching something, then you have to go through the process of getting it replaced, and wait all over again.

Picked up Saikano at NYAF this weekend and that was it. They didn't have a couple of other series I was looking to get so I didn't grab anything else for anime. Of course, that was mainly because I plan on spending all that money at RightStuf, so now I have some extra cash to burn on the next few sales.

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 09/30/09 07:37 PM

Utawarerumono is an above average solid watch.

Red Garden I own but I haven't gotten around to yet.

Venus vs. Virus was pretty bad IMO. I don't even remember much from it even though I watched it like 6 weeks ago. I just remember it struggling from being boring, cliché, and never really connecting me to the characters.

i think the problem was for me, i didn't have patience for it when i was younger and when my step brother(younger) tried to get me to play the games, he never explain anyhting to so i'd hate it. I've recently been playing the budekai and other games and been really enjoying. i guess its and acquired taste tho. i will amit, i still don't really care for the art all that much.

And you're talking to an old Dirty Pair fan here-I always preferred Kei to Yuri. Both incarnations of DP-classic and Flash work for me.

In order to fully enjoy Video Girl Ai one should really read the manga.

Alright, there are obvious differences. One looks cooler, but is more expensive and ON ORDER FROM MANUFACTURER.

By the way what I mean by this is that the comic book store I go to you can sign up and they will hold comics and stuff for you that you order ask them to hold as long as you buy them eventually. They don't like it when it's there for months or to much stuff in it.

That's what a sale is suppose to do. It's suppose to get their customers to buy more.

When a sale occurs it isn't just the retailer temporarily dropping prices. The manufacture/distributor is also chipping in, so they are both still making profit.

That place isn't always the best for getting anime or any other dvd's (unless they have a sale going on). Unless you use their third-party sellers they will sell the dvd's for as much as they can, that's why i haven't used them for a long time (unless i really need to).

For myself there are pretty much only two stores that i use for anime and RS is one.

I thought about doing the same thing...but i just couldn't resist so i went and snagged it, especially when it's a lot cheaper than a number of other retailers.

Especially, if you buy from this seller. wink

Glad there was a Geneon sale, I've been wanting to get that BD Samurai Champloo set but was hoping it would go on sale before it released.


You do know that the BD set of Samurai Champloo is just upscaled 480P-don't you?

Yeah, I'm aware. It wasn't so much for the picture quality that I wanted it, more to show that I am willing to buy anime on BD whenever possible (even series that have DVD releases already.) I'm hoping my purchases of BD products contribute to seeing more stuff (that is HD) available on it (except Kurokami, because Bandai is actually making that release worse than the DVD.)

Same here. As consumers, we must vote with our dollars.

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 11/17/09 10:49 AM

Put an order in for the GSG ova's. Tho i'm a little confused. The synopsis for the ova's describes the storyline for the second season, so are they like a side story as the Saikano ova's were or an independant storyline...?

I guess i'll find out when they come in later this week. OH THE WAIT!!! frown

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 11/17/09 07:34 PM

WAAAH cry I never got to watch Saikano. A year or so ago I ordered it off Rightstuf, but it got canceled, oh well.

But yeah, If I'd known ahead of time that a BD version of a series was coming out, I'd wait for it.

Yeah, it might just be an upscaled version, but it's not like its $20+ more. It's just around $10. Heck it's alot better than what the price on the Samurai Champloo box set USED to be. Now it's lower priced and its available in Blu-ray. I think I'll pick the mid ground, which I already did, by buying the BD release.

How many eps are on a disk? I don't have any long running anime series on BD, so I was wondering how the case is gonna look. Anyone got a picture?

Nothing! One is counting the extras in the run time and the other one doesn't. The only difference should be the packaging. The Litebox edition is the three discs in a standard (14mm) case, while the other collection is the three singles in a thin box.

That's good to hear. I think you or someone else here suggested it a while back, and I've just been waiting for a sale.

That first group was my "must order" list. I still have a few others that I'm on the fence about (the infamous Eiken among them), but I've got ten days to think about them. There were a few Media Blaster hybrids that I had passed on before, but I might go ahead and snatch up as many of those as I can, while they're available and on sale.

Man, I read all of the Genshiken graphic novels before I watched any of the anime. I had thought that Genshiken 2 would be a continuation, but it's more like the midpoint or second series. How long is the gap between the release of Genshiken and Genshiken 2?

Eiken was really excessive. I don't think I'd pick it up even if it were just for comedy.

It was me and like I said before, treat episode 39 as the final episode and episodes 40-45 as an encore. That way you'll get the best enjoyment out of the title. smile

First off, Happy Birthday!

Gundam 00 (the latest series) is an excellent place to start. The series was directed by Seiji Mizushima, the same director who did the first series of Fullmetal Alchemist.

The series is excellent-be prepared to cry a lot in the last 6 episodes-the ending is considered to be a copout by some-for me it was well done. As I've stated many times I'm dub only-but when watching fansubs I have no choice in the matter.

I think I've only posted on this thread once but I've been enjoying a nice cold Sapporo so I thought I'd settle into a nice post.*

My update is more of a random sampling but it's worth noting that I've broken my Viz embargo. I decided that, despite my still lingering bitterness over their handling of past titles, I feel like it's more important to support the dwindling dub shops where I can (besides, the market has been slim pickings for a while). That said, if they drop the ball again they're dead to me...I mean that in the nicest possible way. ;-)

Just received:
Hayate the Combat Bubbler Part 3 Box Set
Honey Ale w/Clover Season 1 - Box Set 1
El Cazador de la Brewpub Season 1 - Box Set 1
Renal Tragica Collection 1

Just Ordered:
Ah! My Budweisha Volumes 1-6
Blade of the Immobile Volumes 1-3
Clannad: After Happy Hour Collection 2
Genshiken (Not Stirred) 2 Volumes 2-3 No art box --> Tears+Beer :-(
Tequliaslinger Girl: Ill en el Latrino OVA
[Bar]Nana[?] Box Set 1

I hadn't realized that I had already preordered all of Morihito and nearly ordered it again. Doh!

*Perhaps it was more than one Sapporo...

All the more reason to be ticked with Media Blasters:

Genshiken 2 Premium Complete Collection

It includes a Genshiken t-shirt and presumably an art box of some sort. I'm cool with re-releases and all but being hosed so quickly for being an early adopter is getting pretty weak.

Why... those low-down, filthy little... *off stage rant - you can hear things breaking*

Why do certain American companies despise loyal anime fans so much? I placed two orders during that recent Media Blasters sale, too! Let me guess: as soon as I sell volumes 1 and 2 (which I just started watching last night) in order to buy the Premium set, they'll announce the release of a complete Genshiken set, including both seasons and the OVAs that were previously available only with the KU set... on Blu-ray!

Tsunami3k, would you be a dear, and pull this dagger out of my back? Thank you.

If anything, I'm sure it's more ignorance than spite. I suspect they haven't a clue as to how deeply some of us value these thing and how easy it is to take such behavior personally. I'm not against re-releases that are remastered and/or offer extras at a better price but to do so in lock-step following the main release is profoundly uncool.

Certainly. And if you'd be so kind as to be my kaishakunin when the time comes, I'd be honored. It occurs to me that it would send a strong message to the anime industry if I should meet my end at the edge of your fine Cheness steel.

If it comes to that, I won't hesitate; but let's see that it doesn't come to that. wink

Yes, "personally" a good way to put it, in that some of us do take those things that way, both as general consumers and anime fans. I just don't see how anyone in the business could be that ignorant, so I must assume they simply don't care about the fans. If the releases were going to be five years apart, that's one thing; but to release them so close to each other is so infuriating for those of us who've committed to the first release (not to mention that Media Blasters even cancelled the art box after I had pre-ordered it).

lol...I wish you the best of luck with that. Out of stubbornness more than anything, I make it a point to finish every series I start. Saiyuki has been my greatest challenge yet. Once I concluded that the Slayers-esque "bad guys" were the real stars of the show I found it much more tolerable.

I know what you mean I had bought almost all of the "first season" And watched it a little past it's half way mark before I gave up and traded it in.

I blame the sale for making me want to pick it up again, I mean for about the price of three of the first volumes I get the whole she-bang!

For me bluray doesn't mean that much-dvds are fine-considering that 99% of the anime out there is on dvd and is still being released on dvd and bluray isn't going to to achieve the market penetration that dvds have. I mainly use my bluray player for watching AVCHDs of fansubs-in the 3 years+ that bluray has been around I have only acquired 5 bluray discs and only 1 is anime-Appleseed Ex Machina. If I already have a series like say-Samurai Champloo on dvd-there's no way I'm gonna double dip and get it on bluray. If you're talking about a special effects laden film like The Golden Compass-and if the price is right I'll get the bluray of it. But something like Cardcaptor Sakura on bluray? You gotta be kiddding me- I know that the japanese will buy anything anime if it comes out on bluray-at some point (unless you have bottomless pockets) one must say no thank you.
Posted by: Stefanie

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 12/30/09 09:22 AM

For me, DVDs = Stereo 8 tapes. lol

One of the things I especially hate about having to buy anime titles on the vastly inferior, archaic DVD format is that many American anime companies don't know how to use subtitles on shows that have 1.78:1 aspect ratios. They put the subtitles partially above and/or below the picture instead of within the picture, where they belong. If you want to see an example of correctly done wide-screen subtitles on DVD, watch Geneon's release of Last Exile. Companies still in business should take note. I really miss Pioneer/Geneon. *sigh*

Of course, with Blu-ray, this is never a problem, because the format is intended for 16:9 screens. Considering that sub-onlys are becoming more common, and that most, if not all, new shows are 1.78:1, the BD format is the way to go.

Same here. I still have yet to try a BD movie/series. It's funny, since my brother purchased a ps3 we still use the dvd player just as much as before and really haven't thought about giving a BD a shot. We still just go and grab the standard dvd's (widescreen of course)and enjoy them just fine.
Posted by: Hobby Ninja

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 12/31/09 09:30 AM

It wasn't that long ago that I had to upgrade my entire video library from VHS to DVD. BD discs are still cost inhibitive for me. My brother has a BD player, a widescreen TV and the BD box of classic Star Trek. I was suitably impressed with the color,clarity and detail I had never noticed before. Still, he has more money than I do.
In a perfect world I would be a home entertainment perfectionist. I just have to go with what I can afford. I hear that the costs keep coming down. They are still not low enough for me to convert over to a new system yet again. Also, the variety of titles is limited in BD.

Within the past month I've noted price drops on some of the BD-Media, but it's primarily been on titles that have been out for a year or more already.

As previously stated by someone else, BD just doesn't have market penetration. And frankly Sony keeps shooting themselves in the foot with this bull s*%# about revising not only the HDMI specification standards every six months, but the actual BD format standards nearly as often as well.

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 01/09/10 10:31 AM

So, I plan on buying:
Baccano! DVD Complete Series (Hyb)
Blue Gender DVD Box Set (Hyb) - Viridian Collection
Darker Than Black DVD Complete Series (Hyb)
Coyote Ragtime Show DVD Box Set (Hyb)
Evangelion, Neon Genesis: 1.11 You Are (Not) Alone Blu-ray (Hyb)

Tenchi Muyo GXP DVD Box Set (Hyb)
Tenchi Muyo Ryo Ohki DVD Box Set (Hyb) - Viridian Collection
Pumpkin Scissors DVD Complete Series (Hyb)

Now I have a few questions:
1. Will there be a Afro Samurai Complete Murder Sessions Blu-Ray release?
2. What about a Bamboo Blade complete colletion Blu-ray release (atm theres just 2 part dvd colletion)
3. Will Baccano! see a Blu-Ray release
4. Will Darker Than Black see a Blu-Ray release
5. Will Rin: Daughter of Mnemosyne see a Blu-Ray release
6. Will Strike Witches see a Blu-Ray release
7. Will Hell Girl see a Blu-Ray release
8. Why did Heroic Age get a normal 2 Part DVD release, then a Blu-Ray Complete Colletion (I so would of rather bought the Blu-Ray Colletion over the 2 part DVD colletions)
9. Why did Nabari no Ou act the same as Heroic Age
10. Will Soul Eater act the same as both Heroic Age and Nabari no Ou and see a normal 2 part DVD release then a Blu-Ray Complete Colletion release.
10. Why can't all anime be released in both DVD and Blu-Ray at the same time so I won't have to cry every time I see a good series released in Blu-Ray when I already got the DVD release.
11. Does all this count as a rant? I have no idea.
Posted by: WhtHawk

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 01/09/10 12:56 PM

6. Will Strike Witches see a Blu-Ray release
  • To the best of my knowledge, FUNimation has not announced a Blu-ray release. The promotional video FUNimation has posted on their website is quite amusing; Amoung all the one liners about pants and aliens it manages to mention only a DVD release.

10. Why can't all anime be released in both DVD and Blu-Ray at the same time so I won't have to cry every time I see a good series released in Blu-Ray when I already got the DVD release.
  • Unfortunately, the Blu-ray format requires a complete retooling from DVD production since size is about all they have in common. This means that the producers have more cost and less equipment. Production is slower and necessairly has a higher cost. Not even titles one would expect to ge great sellers like Evangelion: 1.0 You Are [Not] Alone received a simultaneous release of the DVD and Blu-ray. Additionally, there are concerns of "reverse importation" since the USA and Japan share the same Blu-ray region. Delaying the release allows the North American distributor to build up the required capital from DVD sales, and allows the Japanese distributor more time to sell the higher priced copy locally. While I will be double-dipping some, I will be joining many of us here in waiting for the Blu-ray version of the titles I am interested in purchasing.

11. Does all this count as a rant? I have no idea.
  • Yes, but one which rings close to the heart of many a fan of retail product.

I've really been avoiding new releases fron Funimation because of their high prices and mostly have been getting older releases and some Sentai releases because of their much lower prices even if they are sub only.

What's really odd to me is that their Blu-ray releases are more or less the same price as their DVD releases. Granted a lot of the former are just upscales, but if you're presented with both at the same price point, unless you don't plan on getting a Blu-ray player, why go with the latter?

I don't usually post here, but you mentioned Kurau Phantom Memory. Yeah, it is great science fiction, but its biggest strength is its characters. Kurau and Christmas are my two favorite characters out of anime, and possibly other mediums, too. Ayaka, Doug, and some of the minor characters are amazing as well, but Kurau and Christmas are at the top because of their relationship and emotions. Kurau is my favorite anime because it has had the biggest emotional impact on me; I haven't seen another show where I have had a stronger emotional connection to the story and its characters.

Keep watching it! I hope you continue to enjoy it, and if anyone else hasn't picked up Kurau, then I highly recommend that you purchase it. The singles are in the bargain bin here on Right Stuf, and I recommend the singles over the collections because it's cheap, the art is superb, and the singles come with inserts that contain interviews and production notes.

There is even more to the story I mentioned yesterday. The package didn't arrive till almost 7:30 and threw it out in the snow in front of my house in a bag. I actually spent a half hour on the phone to find out that the had left it and trek out in the snow to find it. I have a long drive way. The good news is that I don't know what was damaged other then label was wet I think. Nothing else was damaged. The dvds worked and there was no damage to packaging.

It's a good thing that Right Stuf does sturdy packaging because I've run into more than a few issues with the postal service that would have spelled the end for most packages.

I'd drop a note off with Right Stuf's customer service. Sometimes preorders get "stuck" in the system and need to be pushed out manually.

It's possible! However, location (living outside US) and shipping method also play a roll, when it comes to partial shipments.

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 02/17/10 12:37 PM

I'm in the heart of Chicago, but I chose economy shipping so that's probably why I didn't get it yet. Thanks for your toughts - I appreciate it!

You're fine then! If you live in the US and use USPS (US Mail), then you are eligible for partial shipments. UPS users only get an initial partial shipment and that's it.

I should note that they do partial shipments every other week. It's not an instant thing, since it's at their expense. If your order qualifies one of the following guidelines, then you'll get a partial shipment.

1.) If 50% of your order is in stock.
2.) If 45 days have passed since anything has shipped out of the order.
3.) If $100 worth of items in your order is in stock.

FWIW, Mania (AOD) has a excellent FAQ thread on Right Stuf and it goes in great detail about the working of their system.

Although the needs to be updated, since there have been a few changes at Right Stuf in the past few months.

Wait until 30 days, then contact CS. After 30 days, the package will be declared as "lost" by USPS and Right Stuf can cash on the insurance. Either Right Stuf will send you a replacement or give you a refund.

Posted by: Supermutant

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 02/22/10 01:29 PM

Since it's been lost somewhere in processing or stolen I order another copy of Dai-Guard Volume 6 elsewhere. At this point it was pre owned or box set but place I ordered it other then RS that I trust. It was either that or 38 box set. I still have volume 1-5 and they are not lost. I hope there isn't any problem with this one. Funny thing is that it seems the replacement for a lost copy now lost. Of course like joelgundam01 says I can't do much till after 30 days except wait and scream.

I know but UPS can be expensive at times. I mean reason I used USPS for that because it was cheap for regular shipping. I just spent over 200 on the Section 23 sale and thought there wouldn't be a problem. There was snow (BOY DID IT SNOW) and usual crap from USPS.

No economy shipping+big order=ouch. Or at least I recall some orders by, an, um, friend that would have exceeded $100 for the cheap shipping. Besides, tracking or not, they don't call them the United Parcel Smashers for nothing. Punks just about set one of my HDTVs out on the soaking wet ground rather than ring my doorbell to see if I was home.

It's a cute series-I got this quite a while back used-but the folding case was so ratty I decided to replace it with this. There's next to no fanboy stuff in it-but the characters are really likeable-especially Narue.

You can track it with USPS as well. Shawne went the extra mile to include enhanced tracking on all USPS packages (including Media Mail).

I personally don't trust UPS. You may receive your stuff in time, but they are not called the United Parcel Smashers (in my book) for nothing.

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 02/23/10 03:10 PM

I never had really the problems with USP as I have had with USPS. From stuff being stolen to stuff missing, tapes somehow erased, books telling you not to bend were bent, stuff being way late, stuff opened, stuff left out by the street. Just recently that UPS for some did that I am guessing because of snow. At least I hope it was that not a trend. I have a lot more problems with them then UPS. Just for some reason now having problems with UPS who decide not to deliver You're Under Arrest: Full Throttle Collection 1 today because of EMERGENCY CONDITIONS BEYOND UPS' CONTROL.

Stuff being missing now too and stuff left out by street. My mail box is at the end of a long drive way. Not careful it could be stolen out there thrown away with thrash.

LoL I just called the usps 1-800 number to open a claim. 10 minutes later my local post office called me to tell me they don't have it, That was pointless. 17 days now and counting since To love Ru part 2 shiped.

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 02/25/10 05:30 PM

Second attempt to get replacement for the missing Dai-Guard Volume 6 came today. No problems really except by the mail box again. I think the problem it's post office in IA or wherever it is. I called was told well the shipment supposedly was consider a book or magazine and then are shipped last. Something is wrong there man.

Just pre ordered:
Eyeshield 21 Collection 1
Mobile Suit Gundam Movie Trilogy
Hell Girl Season 2: Two Mirrors Collection 1 (I got to remember to pick the season 1 collection. I saw it on IFC)
Samurai Harem Complete Collection
You're Under Arrest: Full Throttle Collection 2
and put on a different since didn't want to wait till may for it Slayers Revolution.

Added one last order till either august or later:
Hell Girl Volume 3-6. Saw that right stuff was getting low on some volume and was out of box set. Seems like this maybe going out of print. frown

I solved my lost/stolen/missing mail problems. All my shipments are sent to the company I work for now, lol. Okay, so obviously that's not going to be an option for everyone. At home we we're having fewer issues because we upgraded from a mailbox to a "mailbarn", which is just a normal looking mailbox that's roughly three times the size of a regular mailbox.

Just ordered:
Aura Battler Dunbine: Volume 2
Aura Battler Dunbine: Volume 7
Kyo Kara Maoh! Season 1
Power Stone: Volume 3
Samurai 7: Volume 5
Sorcerer Hunters 1
Sorcerer Hunters 2

Should have the rest of Peach Girl later this week. Also working on Neo Ranga (boxset w/singles).


Also, does anyone know if the starter set for Peach Girl comes with a collectors box to hold the entire series, or just the first disc w/ a few extras inside?

After doing some more searching on it, i found the starter box (hopefully w/artbox) for under $3 brand new. For that price i think that it would be a little foolish to pass up. Will have that one in probably early next week.

Just go after the movie trilogy for this one. It's a compilation set and personally I think it tells the story much better this way. The series isn't too bad, but it's all over the place.

I have all of Maison Ikkoku-but it's on the infamous hk set-laser disc rips with pretty good fansubs-about 10 episodes per disc but that's ok by me-it's a series that's best watched subbed-I watched a few episodes dubbed and it just didn't appeal to me at all-one of the episodes (25 I belive) has Alone Again-Naturally and another Gilbert O'Sullivan song for the opening and closing themes that weren't in the R1 us release due to copyright violations.

I have that one myself-the one that's kind of like a holy grail to me is Spirit Of Wonder-Miss China's Ring which is an old Animeigo release from about 10 years ago-from the astronomical prices that the rare copy that pops up on ripoff bay or amazon commands it must have had a very small production run. I did find a dual language fan rip of it on the web a couple of years ago, though.

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 03/23/10 03:18 PM

I hate to admit it, but when Bebop was on tv several years ago (when i was 7-9) I didn't give it a chance, probably because I was so much younger, then I saw the first episode recently and appreciated it's value. Also, I'm happy now, the 4 other items were shipped last night and RS is supposed to receive more Bebop today.

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 04/16/10 08:34 AM

Actually I just purchased some 30 odd titles from a guy near me off Craigslist. He had some junk stuff in there like Amon Saga, Crying Freeman and others, but he also had some really good titles too. A brief rundown of the good stuff:

Season 1 of Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex. Last 2 discs were still sealed.

GITS Movie 2 Innocence Japanese 5.1

Inuyasha Movies 1, 2 and 3

Legend of Lemnear

Record of Lodoss War OVA boxset ( yes the original 13 ep release! )

Record of Lodoss War TV boxset - 26 ep series

Spriggan

Vampire Hunter D, 1st and 2nd movies

Blood: The Last Vampire


There were also some random hentai ones in there too along with a few bootleg series like Cowboy Bebop Perfect Sessions, Witch Hunter Robin and Ninja Scroll the TV Series. All told it had about half of the stuff as duplicates of what I already owned but I know I can sell those off easily enuff.

And I got all that stuff for a grand total of....... $60. smile

As long as I can sell off those dupes for around $5 each, I'll make all my money back and have some extra leftover. Yay for Craigslist!

Record of Lodoss War TV boxset - 26 ep series, Record of Lodoss War OVA boxset ( yes the original 13 ep release! )-I have all of the ova and discs 2 and 4 of the tv series-seems like 1 & 3 are kinda hard to come by for a reasonable price.

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 04/17/10 09:36 PM

I just went to the flea market early this morning with a bunch of random stuff I had leftover from a previous Craigslist buy to see if I could sell it off completely or trade out for something new.

The only guy there that ever has any anime actually was pretty accomodating and we struck up a deal where I was able to get some cash and the following series sets:

Fate/Stay Night complete series
To Heart Season 1 Limited Right Stuf artbox set with numbered COA.
Seasons 1, 2 and 3 of Slayers.

I think I did pretty good especially with that limited artbox set for To Hearts first season. I think this was set 389 of 1000 made.

I also really liked the Ninja Scroll movie as it was one of the first anime I ever saw, not counting the old stuff on TV back in the 70's like G-Force, Speed Racer etc. But NS the TV show is a tad different. It does the whole "monster of the week" scenario for the most part and while they *try* and keep things lively by having lots of different enemies for Jubei to play with, I thought most were just weird and not scary or cool as in the movie. The ending was also not what I expected and kind of felt half-assed. But overall, it had decent action and some good badguys here and there. I wouldn't buy it at retail but if you can get a good price for the series, I'd get it if you liked the movie. It's enjoyable for a non-serious show if you go into it just looking for some hack and slash action and not a lot of depth.

But we all need that kind of mindless fun now and again, yes? wink

Yep.
I figured the singles were better as they also have a wealth of cool extras, that Funimation left out.

Posted by: zrdb

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 04/25/10 06:12 PM

The truth of the matter is that at the Big Lots near where I live there aren't too many (if any) people who know that they have some excellent anime bargains (almost always Funimation) and you really have to roll up your sleeves and do some serious digging to find what they have-usually they have 3, maybe 4 titles.

Since we don't even have an anime DVD in our local Best Buy, I haven't even bothered looking at the Big Lots. :P

It's very possible! I personally know the days when my local BL stocks DVDs, so I usually have first pickings. Usually by the following week the majority of the titles are gone.

I was so happy when you smiled
Your smile breaks through the clouds of grey
Far from the sunny days that lie in sleep

Waiting with patience for the spring
When the flowers will bloom renewed again
Knowing there's more beyond the pain of today

Although the scars of yesterday remain
You can keep on living as much as your heart believes
You can't be born again
Although you can change
Let's stay together always

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 04/27/10 08:56 PM

Seeing as I just sold some stuff to fund an anime buy, I went ahead and made an order from the BBB sale here at RS. It included:

F3
Air TV series discs 1-4 w/artbox
Aquarion sets 1 and 2
Blue Seed full series
Blue Gender full series
Gad Guard discs 1-7 w/artbox
Kanon full set
Magikano discs 1-3 w/artbox
Negima! full series first season
Texhnolyze discs 1-6 w/soundtrack
Venus Versus Virus full series w/artbox
Weather Report Girl ( due to numerous praises here in the forums smile )


So it looks like I will have yet another stack to add to the "to watch" list. Hooray!

I am set for some serious anime watching, although I have been in the middle doing just that lately. smile

I think you'll enjoy Koi Kaze, but it depends on how you feel about the subject matter. It was said by someone somewhere that this series "heartwarming and disturbing" at the same time. I can't say much about the other two. I've seen two trailers for Kaleido Star. One that was the standard stuff ADV used to do, random clips set to music from the series, and a much better 2nd one that made it seem like it should have been the next big thing. It was hard to believe both were about the same show. Haven't seen or heard a single thing about To Heart, just like the majority of RightStuf/Nozomi's licenses.

Also, my box set for Tenjho Tenge arrived, and Love Hina is on the way. I ordered them at the same time, but I guess that's what I get for waiting 'til the next to last day for pre-orders.

This is one series that i thought was such a chore to get through. Not exactly classic material here.
Posted by: J.E.S.

Re: What anime did you just buy? - 04/29/10 05:58 PM

What specifically did you not like about it?
I'm somewhat curious about it. Was it the story & characters or,
was the quality of the animation poor?
I can honestly forgive a series if it's got a weak story & characters, but nice artwork and vice-versa.
But both is just plain unforgivable.
Also picked up Venus Verus Virus from the weekly specials.
That'll be my last purchase for a little bit.

I thought that the animation was actually pretty decent. It was the story more or less. It was like your typical teenage harem story. Boy comes from mountain wilderness to do some more 'training' only that training involves being with girls (teenagers of course)and getting into your typical harem style incidents. Possible spoiler
Click to reveal..
As is the case in these types of shows there is always a degree of romance in them, with the girls fighting over the boy in their own way. However this one ends open ended without resolving anything along these lines if that is something you were looking for.


I was ready to drop it around ep 6-7 but as it was only 12 (13?)eps i just finished it off. For me this won't be a re-watch.

Completed my Ergo Proxy collection with the addition of volume 6. Also picked up one of the two volumes of Eureka Seven I need to complete my set: volume 2. All that's left now is volume 11...

Sadly, they were $22 apiece, at FYE. =\ Not many better choices, though, since RightStuf doesn't have any of those particular volumes left in stock. (I couldn't help but chuckle at many of the store prices, though, due to the much more agreeable prices from RightStuf. ^^)
