Did your collection appear in ANN's Shelf Life column at some point? Maybe its just a similar shelf, but your collection looks familiar.

Re: DVD Collection - 04/18/08 10:53 PM

Sadly no, my shelf wasn't in ANN's Shelf Life column. That would of been cool though. And yeah I've seen quiet a few people with the same exact shelf as me. It's only like 30 dollars at walmart. So that's probably why.

It's hard to take pictures of mine, since it's scattered (most in the closet and the rest in a DVD cabinet). However, with last week's shipment. I hit the 500th DVD mark. smile

Very nice collection Sian, I really love your figures. But my favorite thing on your shelf has to be that Read or Die picture in the first pic. Where did you get that? Also that's even more awesome that most of your collection comes from rightstuf.

Thanks ! You also have a nice collection wink !! About the the ROD picture that you mention, it's one of those pencil board that came with each DVD. I really love that pencil board so i've put it in a photo frame. If i remember correctly it was the one that came with the DVD 1 + Box.

I'd love to contribute to this thread since the Dark Lord has supplied my shelves more than any other place. Unfortunately, my bedroom is a mess since I'm working on moving to my own place. Maybe I can just post some snippets tomorrow. wink

Unless you guys want to see stacks of Avon boxes.

Wow you're right, I totally forgot I had that pencil board. I'm so stealing your idea and I'm gonna frame once of my pencil boards too.

Re: DVD Collection - 04/19/08 10:02 PM

This is a neat idea for a thread. Perhaps I'll work up the nerve to post some shots of my collection in the future but it's not at its most photogenic right now. In the meantime, perhaps I can offer an image of a collection of a different sort:

Living Room Collection

In an attempt to quarantine my anime addiction to a single room in the house I engaged in a large-scale shelf building project in my den last June. The irony is as pictured and the dining room has remained the unofficial repository since. Oh well. What the heck do I need with a dining room anyway?

Re: DVD Collection - 04/19/08 10:54 PM

And thanks sian, I'll probably stop by dollar tree soon.

Re: DVD Collection - 04/23/08 06:26 AM

I'll try and post my collection pictures soon. I took a few years off anime (except for a few big big shows). I have no idea why I did, guess it was anime burnout and other things taken up my money and interests. I'm back with a vengeance now and going back and buying lots of shows I've missed and slowly building my collection again as well as rebuying some series that are re-released (IE: X Remix, Slayers, etc.).

My collection is nowhere near huge like lots of anime nuts are, but I think I have a good sized collection.

Great collection Harley. Excellent foresight with building in a little extra room for future growth. I'm afraid I've built myself into a bit of a corner with my premade shelves. You've a great setup so, if you think of it, please post new pics when you've got them stained and finished.

Re: DVD Collection - 04/24/08 12:33 AM

Here's my collection!


Big spinny thing
Tiny spinny thing The big spinny thing is partially cut off by my bed, but there are four sides total, and each side has seven shelves. It's completely full. The tiny spinny thing has 3 sides full, and one side completely empty. I use a lot of double-packing and thinpacking for those.

Bin next to my bed
Under the bed box
Li'l boxes under my dresser


Top shelf of closet
Top of bookshelf 1
Top of bookshelf 2 The DVDs on the top shelf of my clost and on top of my bookshelf are 2 deep.

Toybox You can't see most DVDs in my toybox.There are 66 boxes, of varying size, in there.

And I do have another box under my bed, but it's pretty much all non-anime DVDs.

3- Really nice jobs with the shelf. I'll probably set up something similar when I moved. I currently have all my DVDs in a large walk-in closet *mostly* on bought shelves, and I am completely out of room. Too bad I lack carpentry skills.

Re: DVD Collection - 04/25/08 07:38 PM

I decided to contribute as well for the hell of it. Like I mentioned, I have these DVDs in a walkin closet so it was a bit too tight in there to take good pictures. Also photobucket reduced the size considerably.
TRSI made some serious $$$ off of me the in past 10 years. smile
Not pictured are a ton of figures and video games that I keep on other shelves or in cardboard boxes.

That's great and good luck. Bamboo picks collections of all different sizes and yours has plenty of visual appeal. I wouldn't be surprised see it show up in the next few weeks. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.

Re: DVD Collection - 04/26/08 05:55 PM

Took a number of years off collecting due to work being extriemly busy but started catching up last Nov and have been filling out a lot of stuff. Need to put up anotehr rack and re-arrange as have a bit more then 300 more titles waiting for space or on order.




Yea, lots of stuff still sealed but have a over 20 weeks of vacation backed up right now.

Re: DVD Collection - 04/27/08 01:45 AM

It doesn't compare to some of the collections so far but here is mine. And my first post on this forum. :P

My sister has an entire box from the collection that she took off for Florida with when I moved to Kansas City and it had about 100 disks in it. I have no idea when I will get them back. And I really don't want to think about how much of this I have gotten from TRSI because I know it has to be at least half of it. Those Geneon sales the last couple of years hit me pretty hard.

first shelf
second shelf

That's a great collection with a lot of excellent titles. Congrat's on your first post. Here's to hoping you belie your screen name and become a posting maniac; it's neat to see another KC person on the boards.

My collection is absolutely TINY compared to a lot of these. However, I'll still post pics. These are a bit outdated, but not by a lot. They were taken around Christmas of this past year.

My entire shelf

First close-up

2nd close-up
3rd close-up

Last close-up

Boxes 1
Boxes 2
Boxes 3

I've since gotten rid of the Moon Phase vol. 1 + box and my Fushigi Yuugi OAV set, and obtained a few other things, including Mushishi 1 + box, and I've also changed my layout a bit, kinda for the worse. I refuse to take new pictures, however, until I have my shelves and such how I want them. That'll mean getting rid of the big white thing in favor of a better shelf and changing the purpose of the 2nd shelf that some of my DVDs are in right now. So that will likely be in June.

Oh come on now...no teasing. Show us what you've got. It's cruel to allude to an awesome collection and then turn around and say you won't show it. wink If you've got an itchy shutter-finger then go for it. Your post leaves no doubt that you have a collection worthy of a photo shoot. If it is indeed a collection you've worked hard to build up then why not give that baby a spin or two down the catwalk. C'mon, work those artboxes! grin

i will, but first i gotta get some insurance stuff in line. i just switched agencies last week, and i need to do some inventory work. i will soon, i promise smile

Re: DVD Collection - 05/19/08 10:49 PM

Wow, those are all some great collections. I have a mediocre collection that consists of a bunch of box sets with a few movies here and there. Never really thought of posting a pic of them all tho. They aren't up on shelves, but in drawers in my dresser. Tho I'm wondering, are those HUGE collections like lp_harley has just a collection or do all of you like all that anime. I personally just stick the things that are favs. Props tho to the ppl that can dish out the money to fill a wall of shelves with nothing but anime. If only I was rich. If only!!

I have not watched all of mine yet either. I don't have as much time as I used to but I have not slowed down my watching habits. There are 26 disks that I have not taken out of the plastic yet *oh man, I had no idea I was that far behind* and I don't know how many have showed up at the house yet that I have not picked up yet.

it all starts with the first vhs/dvd, and then it's just all uphill from there. i remember my first anime purchase - it was Burn UP! on vhs from ADV. ahh....the days... i already had a few fansubs, but Burn UP! was the keystone that started my collection. i fond memories of that quintessential cheese fest laugh

buying all the anime one wants does require fundage, but it also requires smart shopping/budgeting. one can double their purchasing power by shopping used, sales, box-sets, etc. twice the anime for half the cost is always good.

everything in my collection i have watched at least twice, many eve thrice or more. i'm a rewatcher, so any anime i get is a fav and do for many viewings over the years.
Posted by: LoStSouLs

Re: DVD Collection - 05/20/08 03:52 PM

My first anime that i bought on dvd was the escaflowne movie Limited edition along with the love hina christmas special dvd. There was one other with that but i cannot recall it. For me i never really collected them on vhs, i mostly just rented them from hastings. But now 420 dvds later i shop a lot smarter than when i first started buying them. All the anime i buy have meaning to me. Be it something i saw and then bought, or series that i blindly buy just because they looked interesting.

The first anime that I actually bought was cowboy bebop. But that was after borrowing a friends copy about 10 times. My first blind buy was Noir.

LOL, I may not have been a fan for long, but the first anime i watched was Wing Gundam on Toonami. Thats probably why I'm more geared toward mecha animes. The first anime I purchased, wow, I have no clue. I started buy them at Game-Stop. Ya know, thost HUGE racks of used dvds. One of the dudes working there said I should look up some Got Anime thing online for a discount, and I ended up here buying the heck outa anything that caught my eye.

ah, escaflowne movie. good crack. i enjoyed it, just as i enjoyed the tv series. both are very good in their own right.

it's not so much that i collected anime on vhs out of choice. when i got back into anime years ago, dvd hadn't been invented yet so vhs it was :P

btw, random OT question, where did u find your Chii avatar? did u make them yourself? i must have smile

Silly A_Z, anime collections aren't for watching.

::watches backlog rise weekly:: About 44% of my 852 DVD collection is backlog =P

However, 70% of my 372 DVD backlog I've already seen fansubbed, so it's not like I've *never* seen the show. I just haven't taken the time to crack open the DVDs and rewatch. So only 114 discs include episodes I've never ever seen.

I haven't really counted my dvds, but I would count all the dvds, if there was a series that came out in original and like limited edition, I would count them both. Oh, and the majority of my collection IS thin-paks, and about half of them are from ADV.

always a worthy mission, especially since anime is known to go OOP without notice. there are quite a few anime dvds that i missed getting before they went OOP. now i gotta hunt them down used which can be frustrating sometimes.

Out Of Print. No longer actively produced, thus harder to find (and as another poster jokingly[?] indicated, often expensive because of this).

Individual discs. Six singles = 6, six discs in a boxset = 6. It's a much more meaningful number, and it helps me do all sorts of calculations in my spreadsheet much more accurately.

Re: DVD Collection - 06/02/08 09:25 AM

Everyone's collections are awesome to look at, I love looking at them smile There are two clear greats on this forum. lp_harley, and ooga. Those are DAMN big domestic collections. I know collecting every single anime release is financialy impossible unless you are ultra rich however the sheer size of the collections are remarkable.

I'll add to the frey with my collection. Some specific angle shots of my collection won a runner up prize in the iotaku contest last year that was posted on ANN, people with tons of figures beat me, but oh well smile The following are kind of an overview of the room, and then two shelf closeups.

I had a big VHS collection but I gave almost all of it away other than some signed and rare copies. I also have an LD collection which is not in this room, I might get around to taking pics of it later. I notice alot of these collections have those horrid quality Sailor Moon season 1 and 2 ADV release box sets. I actually bought those two, but after witnessing the quality difference between the DVDs and the LDs, I returned the DVDs with the exuse that the quality was horrid. They even put in the dvd and played it and confirmed that it was bad (since they usually don't return open items at retail stores).

I'll also note that my collection is alphabitized by original Japanese name even though most are domestic DVDs. This makes it easier for me to keep my mind in the right place as most titles get changed or translated when they reach domestic publishers. Example: Resident Evil goes under B for Biohazard. However I plan to later reorder them by the Gojūon(wiki) system.

On a last note, I haven't updated the pic in several months lol. So I'll edit the post the next time I feel like updating the pictures. I only buy series I like, and have either previewed, or heard very clear descriptions about, I don't buy just to buy, however other than Claymore I own all of the anime I want to own. My blu-ray anime collection is not in any of these photos Enjoy smile

Re: DVD Collection - 06/04/08 10:04 PM

That's a nice collection Otakuden. I'm glad to see you post it. I love anime OSTs so I particularly admire your CD collection. Have you found any particularly affordable source for your legit import OSTs? It's rather hard to gamble at $35-$45 a pop, particularly when a baka gaijin like me can't always tell a drama CD from a music CD...Wow do I miss Geneon<sniff/>.

i have just the answer for you, and the source of at least 90% of all my anime and jpop import cds:

anime jungle
http://jungle-scs.co.jp/en/

i have been doing business with them for over 10 years and never once been disapointed. they are the source for new, old, and hard to find out of print cds, dvds, and laserdics.
i have gotten used cds from anime jungle that are at least 5 years old and still in pristine condition. the japanese (otaku) knows how to treat their swag with respect smile

everything they sell is 100% legit licensed japanese releases. no bootlegs allowed.

they're watchlist is a blessing from otaku nirvana. one seriously doesn't have to do anything but create a list of what they want and animejungle emails you when they get it in stock and you are next in line to buy it.

all one needs is the title and catalogue number. it's how i got the 5 Star Stories ost, BSSM Memorial Music and Box sets, Black Magix M66 ost

Hmm....I've been wondering if someone could answer my question regarding cds since we are on that topic atm. Here's and example RahXephon. I have the 2 OSTs for it, I got them from RightStuf, but I've found on another site that their is a 3rd OST. Why doesn't it get released, or is it that it did come out; I just happened to miss it? Mind you that there are several instances like this.

Re: DVD Collection - 06/11/08 08:08 PM

I don't know about RahXephon, but I know that there have been exclusive releases through specific retailers for other anime titles. Example: The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (ANN)

From what i can see there is a third one. However if you want it, it will be an import purchase. That's why the higher price tag.

it all basically boils down to what the US company is able to get the license for at the time for whatever reasons. it is the same for GiTS: SAC for example. there is a 3rd soundtrack, but it never got a domestic release. you can still get it, but you must import it from a japanese retailer such as cdjapan or animejungle.

animejungle may take a while, but you will pay far less through them then through cdjapan. i use cdjapan mostly for my jpop cds since the only jpop/jmusic animejungle will accept as trade and sell are seiyuu related.

Wish lists would have saved me a lot of hassle back in the day. Now that I don't worry about trying to communicate what I want for Christmas, Birthdays, ect. I don't know that I'd use one.

You know you can "save items for later" after adding them to your cart, right?

Re: DVD Collection - 06/25/08 06:36 PM

Yeah, that also plays havoc with the inventory count. Or at least that’s what it appeared like it did when people would put things into their cart but not buy them, you could see them counting down on the "what we have left" counter.
Posted by: WhtHawk

Re: DVD Collection - 06/25/08 07:07 PM

I'm not sure what the point of the "save for later" concept would be then?

Although, when the items remaining counter comes out, I'm not sure why people would be saving items for later anyway. But then, people will do funny things.

Putting it in your cart and saving it for later are not the same thing. If it's saved, it's not in your cart. Unless something changed, saving for later should not tie up inventory, because you can save for an indefinite period of time.

i love me my aodvd. for many years now, they have helped me keep track of new releases, collections, anime news, and etc. what i deem important or of personal interest, i'll usually summarize and post on my lj for fellow friends, and whomever.

i haven't been a regular on the forums in a few years, but i'm still registered and peek back in every now and then. i have too many outside commitments to truly spend the time there i would need to keep "in the know".

I have this bad habit to buy mostly complete series, or at lease complete story arcs. I purchase some stuff as it comes out volume by volume, but I generally pre-order those items well in advance.

Other than that, I just need to be sure I don't find any amazing sales (easier said than done wink ) to distract me.

i know i'll never get ahead, and thankfully, i don't want to. actually gaining ground on a list that isn't growing or remaining stagnant means that either no new anime is being licensed, or not nearly enough to sate the neverending otakuden thirst. that is not a good thing, imo :P

mine alternates tween gargantuan and super-gargantuan. and that's just the anime list. that doesn't include blu-ray, american live action, and foreign films.

Mononoke Hime is very good. but then, it is Miyazaki after all. speaking of his and Ghibli's movies, if i had to list an absolute top 3 then mine would be (in no particular order):

Nausicaa of the Valley of Wind
Porco Rosso
Whisper of the Heart

Back log, like tradition, get me through those rough times when not much good comes out or I've run out of extra spending money. Also, around the holiday time when you don't want to spend a bunch of money on stuff you may be receiving later anyway.

one of the reasons i dun like having backlog is because i like to go back and revisit my old friends. i've watched at 3/4 of my collection at least twice, and some series many more times then that. part of my anime enjoyment is rewatchability, especially when i catch moments, references, clues, etc i missed the previous time.

Re: DVD Collection - 07/10/08 06:28 PM

Fair enough, though my next play log includes second or third watchings. I know I'll be coming into a relatively slow release period for my personal tastes so I'll be able to work through more of my watching list.

Posted by: sonnyjim91

Re: DVD Collection - 07/31/08 01:53 AM

Secondly, how do you guys manage to AFFORD all this anime? Most of you have special edition box sets and the like in your collections, which I know are expensive, in addition to the hundreds or thousands of regular DVDs. Seriously, I've probably spent over $1000 on my anime/manga collection and it is a fraction of this size.

Any special strategies/deals people have found to save $$ on anime, or are some of you just filthy rich?

Re: DVD Collection - 07/31/08 09:41 AM

Yeah, the 25/$100 is a great help. Because of the earlier sales there was noting in the latest one that I wanted. And I tried to do it to. But I also bought a lot of stuff off ADVs site when they had sales going on. The rightstuf bargain bin and 12 days of x-mas sales. A couple off ebay, couple from used DVD stores. But about half of my collection is just straight preorder or off the shelf cold hard cash full price. But I have also been collecting for about 7 years now, so it isn’t like I bought it all at one time.
Posted by: lp_harley

Re: DVD Collection - 08/01/08 09:01 AM

The 25/$100 does help but a little over 1/3 of my collection was bought at one time on eBay from someone selling their collection and it saved me thousands.

My collection has been online stores. There is really no store out here that has any big anime selections. The local Wal-Mart has only a few shows (most are Naruto box sets). So shopping online is the best way for me.

it could be a stretch, but it used to be that b&m wasn't needed. but then internet/e-stores became more prominent and thus when talking about stores one would sometimes have to clarify what kind of store they were referring to.

but for all i know, it could be even older than that :P

Re: DVD Collection - 08/11/08 09:51 AM

My collection is rather small compared to most, so I took a lot of pics to make it seem bigger! =D. Okay, not really. Due to the size and set up of my room, the way my camera is, etc, the only way to get decent close-ups was to take a picture of each little section of the shelf separately.

If you like rpg's have you tried Morrowind? Though i don't remember seeing it on ps2(just Xbox and PC). It is, i think, probably the best one out there.

Funny thing is, I play my NES more than I play my Wii sometimes. Last night I was actually playing Lum no Wedding Bell (Urusei Yatsura game) for the Famicom via that clone that was on the floor.

In cleaning I found some old Right Stuf catalogs too. Hello sources of notebook customizations!

well, actually it's a Schlitz lamp. still a classic retro beer from your dad's days. but apaprently while i was thinking of Schlitz beer, Schmaltz brewing made it into my fingers and onto my keyboard instead. but yes, that is a Schlitz beer lamp.

http://www.schlitzgusto.com/home.asp

Go For the Gusto! laugh

as much as i still think the beers take like flavored water, retro beers are making a small silent comeback. they'll never reach the level and quality of the fantabulous craft beer scene, but it's kinda cool if you think about it. you can sit down with your dad or gramps and crack open a can or bottle of the same beer he drank when he was a kid.

i played my old NES to death. literally. she died in my arms as i held her, hoping for but one more game before she passed on to NES nirvana, but such was not the case.

It also doesn't have a zillion spinoffs and OAVs and such. Sadly, there is also very little in the way of figures and what not.

I actually have a strange soft spot for Urusei Yatsura (at least the characters, music and everything but the show.) I was so disappointed there was no figure of Lum at Connecticon for sale. frown (granted, that would just increase my single-ness but oh well. wink

I remember reading on another forum that Bandai didn't keep the liscence and Funimation picked it up. This makes me wonder if Funi is waiting to release this as a box set or do anything with it soon. If they are going to do any changes to it (subs/dubs) or not i don't know.

YUA rocks, but i just couldn't really get into AMG! it's ok, but not something i absolutely must own. i had the dvds years ago, but after not rewatching them once in a couple years, i traded them in. everything i own must have infinite rewatchability. sadly, that is about 99% of all anime i watch so i end up watching a lot of anime.

which is a good thing of course smile

Absolutely. A good show is still a good show wether it's the first time through or 20th time. Good is good. Re-watching also serves another purppose-It's what you do when waiting for your new anime orders to come in! laugh

Re: DVD Collection - 09/17/08 06:13 PM

Well thanks for the complents guys I appreciate those. Also I forgot to mention since I made those movies, I have picked up also Desert Punk the whole series, RahXphon the whole series, and one other one. Also the Gentlemen that said he couldn't get into Burst Angel was just one episode away from the classical anime bikini episode funny stuff and if you have the DVD fun to watch the hidden commantery from Mike, Greg and Justin Cook. Any way have a great day and thanks for making Anime what it is today.

Unwatched - Part 1
This is the first part of my collection, I either have not watched this yet, or am currently watching it (at least partially.)

Try to ignore the hideous amounts of dust if you can.

Completed - Part 1
This is the first pic of all the stuff I have actually finished watching.

Completed - Part 2
And here is the rest of the anime from the above shot of what I've finished watching completely. If the quality/lighting isn't great, sorry, they all sit under my drafting table.

Desert Punk is amazing, and very underappreciated, imo. i like to feature underappreciated and such anime in my reviews more often than not so Desert Punk is high up there on my list.

a great socio-political study on humanity, survival, and the great cycle.

?_? hmm does RightStuf sell that OST? And I've yet to really pick up Desert Punk or even look at it....wait. I think I've seen a trailer for it on one of my Funimation dvds. Eh...It's ok, but I have others that I'd rather buy.

no, the cd isn't available domestically, at least not in terms of a license. i had the japanese OST release. animejungle is my friend smile though on a current hiatus till i get some debt paid off :P

desert punk is in a collection, so if you see it on sale somewhere, it's worth it, i think.

Posted by: Alpha_Zeon

Re: DVD Collection - 09/25/08 04:50 PM

WAIT WAIT WAIT...what? is that Import only atm? ?_? I'll need to watch Najica a lil before I would decide wether or not I'd want the OST. I don't know if this is bad, but I have pretty much given up on normal music from the USA...all I listen to are OSTs and CDs that feature anime theme songs and stuff. I have 77 CDs and only about 5 or 6 are imported. Only import to finish a set, which I still need alot.

[Edit: NO RIGHTSTUF!!! I'm poor! DONT MAKE A GENEON SALE!! I don't wanna go negative, and I don't want to miss out on Geneon stuff.]

Re: DVD Collection - 09/26/08 05:19 PM

Does anyone know if Gun X Sword was released in a Boxset or even had a box that held the whole series but was just released with one volume? Thats the only thing keeping me from buying the Gun X Sword series, and its one of the anime I REALLY want.
Posted by: Tsunami3k

Re: DVD Collection - 09/26/08 08:54 PM

Sadly no and given that it's nearly its 2-year release anniversary is this fall, it's probably fair to say that there won't be one. There may be a fair chance that it'll see a boxed release at some point as a thinkpack or digipack but I eventually broke down and got it even though I was holding out for an artbox as well.
Posted by: otakuden

Re: DVD Collection - 09/27/08 09:19 AM

98% of my cds are OSTs, J-music, or other various imports. i wouldn't mind having some of my fav classic rock bands in the collection, but overall, my cd collection is the same.

modern US music sucks -.-
at least, anything mainstream does.
Posted by: otakuden

Re: DVD Collection - 09/27/08 09:21 AM

i'm hoping for some kind of collected release for Gun X Sword myself. it's an anime i want also, and i want to avoid having to buy the single dvds if i can.
~crosses fingers~ here's hoping :3
Posted by: Alpha_Zeon

Re: DVD Collection - 09/27/08 09:21 PM

If it comes down to it I'll have to buy the single DVDs as well. I didn't know it was 2 years old tho. Well 2 years isn't that much of a difference, but it looks like an awesome show and I really want it in boxset form.

I'm not saying modern US music sucks. It's just, my money/time is more spent on anime related music than US music. I still listen to the radio in the morning an afternoon going to and from work, but thats only because I don't want to soil my nice pristine anime OSTs in my P.O.S cdplayer in my car and listen to it thru my crappy speakers. smile

Re: DVD Collection - 09/28/08 09:17 AM

i still think most modern american music sucks :P

Re: DVD Collection - 09/28/08 11:47 AM

Have fun watching ARIA. I'm gonna be pulling my hair out all day deciding on what to buy while this GENEON sale is still going on frown .

Starship Operators DVD Box Set / Ergo Proxy DVD Box Set / Ghost Talker's Daydream
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Aquarian Age: Sign for Evolution CD Soundtrack / Gun X Sword CD Soundtrack 1 & 2 / Sakura Wars: The Movie CD Soundtrack

The CDs are gonna be ordered cuz I need new music. Can't wait to check out the Gun X Sword soundtracks smile , but I'm tore between the three DVD choices. I have the Starship Operators OST and it's also a pretty nice anime from what I've seen. Ergo Proxy was nice when it was still on TV, but it's a preorder and I wont be getting it till October. Ghost Talker's Daydream is really just sumthing I wanna check out. Dominatrix AND a necromancer ?_? odd jobs huh.

Plus ATM I'm only willing to spend $50. So the CDs are around $23, GTD is $18, EP is $41, and SO is $35. I can do the Ergo Proxy pre-order because I'll have money for it when it comes out. >_> bite it I'll just get it all. $75 total discluding the Ergo Proxy set. RAAAAA Damn you RightStuf and your amazing sales smile [I'll just leave all this here so you can all see how worked up and crazy I get when buying.] [EDIT: I'll be posting my DVD collection soon. Taking pics today and posting tomorrow. smile ]

This is my Geneon collection smile . Lots of singles in there frown .
http://i195.photobucket.com/albums/z48/Alpha_Zeon/Geneon.jpg

Some oddball sets. Meaning its hard to put them in place in my collection. (Thats the Gantz ball up there on the top right smile .)
http://i195.photobucket.com/albums/z48/Alpha_Zeon/Oddballsets.jpg

Manga/Novel movie albeit really short LOL. Plus no voice-overs. I dun talk. I really enjoyed the two hardback novels Another Note and Ghost in the Shell: Innocence.
http://s195.photobucket.com/albums/z48/Alpha_Zeon/?action=view&current=MangaNovel.flv

This is my PS2 game collection. I know its not anime, but I was organizing my room so what tha hell smile .

I didn't take a pic of my PS1 games, but I have about 15-20 of'em. Just didn't think to do them. If anyone wants I could tho. smile [Edit: Anyone notice I'm constantly starting new pages in these threads?]

Re: DVD Collection - 09/29/08 08:14 PM

Some nice sets there. smile I really like the displaying or art that the boxes give. Granted, it was a lot easier to display stuff when I didn't have so many discs and half weren't put away. frown
Posted by: Tsunami3k

Re: DVD Collection - 09/29/08 10:42 PM

Sweet. I like your idea of breaking them up by studio. I don't think I've seen anyone do that before with their collection photos but it makes for an entertaining twist. Was that Alvis I saw still packed up in the Last Exile collection? You've got to let the little lady out and adorning a shelf somewhere. cool

It's good to see another artbox fan out there and you've got a few great ones. I've always regretted missing out on a few including that great Last Exile box (and Haibane Renmei, Black Heaven, Samurai Champloo, etc.).

Re: DVD Collection - 09/30/08 07:54 AM

Posted by: Alpha_Zeon

Re: DVD Collection - 09/30/08 06:46 PM

My room can get dusty...and I rarely dust. Except on...Important things like my 40" LCD, my PS3 my Computer. I'm really lazy sleep.

Yes, not the last but the next to last Geneon sale that Rightstuf had I got that as my FIRST pic because it was about to go out of stock I think. Besides Last Exile was one of the anime that got me more into art, particularly Range Murata. Also loved Blue Submarine .09. SWEET!! Last Exile is one of my PRIZED possessions along with the Gantz Ball and my Neon Genesis Evangelion Platinum Tin set smile smile!!

Yeah, I don't think I could manage to put the whole collection in Alphabetical order. So I divided it up buy publisher or whatever. It looks a whole lot neater I believe since most of the ADV are boxsets, Bandai is like sets that are in one case (try looking at the Overman King Gainer set. Looks like a normal 1-disc case, but they manage to cram 6 DISCS into that little thing. Definitely a space saver smile . And speaking of space....my collection isnt on shelves >_> they are in dresser drawers and in 2 white thingys that I believe are meant to hold clothes under a bed frown. You may of noticed alot of plastic on some of the sets. Thats because I carefully cut JUST the slot to slide the dvds out with a razor blade. I kinda wish I had a shrink wrap machine so once I watch something I can just make it like new smile.

I don't have any pics really to show because my camera died on the way down there. But many many other people had cameras.

Also, one thing I would like to show is my truck now has a tramp stamp. There was a pin stripper down there who also happens to be local to me. After I get my truck back from the paint booth this next winter/spring he wants to really do some work on it taking this design up onto the bed cover and something matching on the hood.

Re: DVD Collection - 10/10/08 08:03 PM

Although short, it wasn't too bad. I just wish that they had more eps to it so that the characters had a little more time to develop. But still not a bad watch.

'Starship Operators' is a really good series. It had me hooked wanting to see what happens next. It has a logical ending/not really bad/just not leaping through fields of flowers. The OST is one of the best soundtracks that I have ever heard.

For what it's worth, the lastest issue of Protoculture Addicts has a chapter from the manga series of Ghost Talker's Daydream. It was promising enough to inspire me to drive to the bookstore to look into it further. From what I've seen of the first volume, it appears to have the luxury of being able to tell its story without the awkward pacing or short running time of the anime (a near universal observation of the show).

Anyway, I'm already hooked on the manga. It's a slightly different mood but the sheer number of expressions that Miss Misaki readily employs is entertaining all on its own. If you're into manga at all then it may be very well worth your time to take a peek.

Re: DVD Collection - 10/12/08 11:59 AM

If you can get the chance to watch it do so. It's not that bad, tho as i said before, i just wish that they developed the characters a little more. Still it's one worth checking out.
Posted by: Alpha_Zeon

Re: DVD Collection - 10/13/08 05:44 PM

Oh...shoulda mentioned, that's the stuff that got shipped to me over the weekend. I'm still on R.O.D, but I'll be checking out GTD then Starship Operators. On Ghost Talker's Daydreams Wikipedia site it says the manga is more "in depth". Is it released domestically?
Posted by: Hobby Ninja

Re: DVD Collection - 10/14/08 10:09 AM

The second volume has been released (rightstuf is currently out of stock) and volume three is due in January. It is a very good manga. Well written, drawn and a little adult. I recommend to anyone over 18.
Posted by: Alpha_Zeon

Re: DVD Collection - 10/14/08 05:10 PM

I'd like to see more adult oriented anime that isnt considered "ADULT/HENTAI". Just a more serious and mature theme or sumthing.

OMG my first messed up dvd. THE WORLD IS COMING TO AN END!! No but seriously, I finished R.O.D (AWESOMENESS) and went to start Ergo Proxy. I cut out the lil dvd slot of shrink-wrap (I leave most to the shrink on now if I can and just cut the opening), pop in the first disk into my PS3, hop into bed, and waited for it to play. After about 2-3 min I decided to restart my PS3 since it wasn't loading frown. That didn't work so I took the disc out and examined the "shiny side". Low and behold there is a crack in it about an inch long extending from the small circular hole at that center.

So, what do I do? ?_? I've never had this happen to me before!

If you bought it at a retail outlet, you take it back to the store.
However, I believe you may have bought it online. You have to contact the person/business you ordered it from first via either e-mail or telephone (which ever one they provide on their website). They with contact you back using the same method with what to do. Most places (Rightstuf does) requires a return authorization number written on the address label.

Make sure that you do it soon. Some places only give you only x-amount of days before they won't warranty an item. I'd also check to see if any other discs are scratched/damaged as well, you don't want anymore suprises later on.

Re: DVD Collection - 10/16/08 09:14 PM

I had this happen to me once. I bought a dvd at a local retail store and went I opened it the disc was damaged. I ended up taking the dvd back with the reciept and they happily gave me a new one.

If bought online like RightStuf I believe they have a form you have to fill out when this kind of thing happens.

Re: DVD Collection - 10/17/08 04:52 PM

Well the only thing i keep when i order from RightStuf, which is pretty much the only place I buy anime, is the little order form they ship inside the package. The thing that says what was shipped in that order and what was held back. I keep all of those, and they have made a real nice stack. Thanks for the input smile.

Re: DVD Collection - 10/18/08 08:58 PM

Ergo Proxy was probably my biggest disappointment from the last year.
Seriously, that thing had SO much win it was hard for me to not watch it. But then about disk 3 I was like, WTF mate? And the ending, WHAT WAS THAT?!?!?!

Ah well, Pino was still full of win and cute for me to not give it a total thumbs down. *starts to think of her little sleeper and starts to melt a little from the cute*

Also, with that being a Geneon title I don't know how availability will be. Was it picked up for distribution by the new guys or is it still in limbo?

Funimation is doing their distributing and they are currently cherry picking on the titles, that they want to release out first and Ergo Proxy is one of them. They just released out the complete collection (thinpak box set) for $70. It also comes with the bonus DVD and I couldn't resist picking it up.

honestly, yours was more than likely just a fluke, and TRSI will make sure you get a replacement. it is one rare side-effect of boxsets, especially when the boxset or digipack isn't designed well. i remember some of the early designs and radical ideas they tested out, much to our horror, though many of those models thankfully aren't in production anymore -.-

love the new avatar. a highly underrated anime, imo. fanservice aside, it's actually got a really good theme/message and the characters are fun well fleshed out considering.

i can count on one hand the number of times i've gotten a bad dvd, and that was mostly back in the day when dvd pressings and whatnot were still being developed and perfected. i also remember certain dvd pressing companies being renowned culprates of the "dvd coaster" phenom. nowadays, unless its cracked, its very rare to get a coastered dvd. also, with dvd player technology at an all time high now, issues such as player compatability are all but gone.

True. You really can't find a player that won't give you any problems playing a dvd (except my rca). Players now have a lot of features that they didn't have before, now it's just which one fits your preferences.

Hang in there. I didn't get a DVD player until they got cheap and I still had my nephew let me use his Best Buy employee discount. I would still have my VHS collection if I had any room.

Well only a few of them now. I have no intention of getting a DVD copy of Appleseed. Of all the anime I own copies of, it is probably the only one that I honestly wish I could get a refund on. I know I also have Eiken in my collection too, but I only got that after much urging (and downright begging) from my 12 year old brother. Plus, where I got it from online it was only $12 bucks so that wasn't a big loss to me.

the original Appleseed OVA was horrible.
but, the new Appleseed movies are excellent. i definitely understand not wanting to get a new copy of the early Appleseed OVA, but if you haven't seen the new movies yet, they are Good.

side note, make sure you watch them in order smile

Re: DVD Collection - 10/29/08 11:28 AM

Eh, Appleseed is good as long as you're not watching closely. The one thing that killed Ex Machina for me was the way that the facial expressions on the characters faces never change. It's really hard to be sad for any of the characters when they barely look sad themselves.

I will keep that in mind, though honestly I think some of my disdain for Appleseed was because it was a blind purchase. Something in the back of my head said get it. For that it gets a little extra hate. But to make this more clear as to why, well at that point in my history of anime purchasing, I believe all I had up to then was Ranma ½ and the first OAV set of Tenchi Muyo. I had heard of Ranma before through video games, but Tenchi was a complete and utterly blind buy. I saw it in of all places a music store. And for reason still unknown to me to this day. I shelled out an outrageous $120 bucks plus tax for those 6 single episode volumes of a show I had honestly never heard of before. Suffice it to say, when it comes to anime it is unquestionably the best $120 bucks I ever spent. Now with that in mind I decided to trust my gut feeling and make another blind purchase in Appleseed. While this gut feeling only cost me $20 bucks, it is still to this day the $20 bucks I wish I could get back. I think that because of my bad experience with Appleseed that I try my best to find out about a show first. You know, see a trailer, read a review, maybe even find an episode or two (and in some cases the whole series) online somewhere just to preview it first. Why the whole series if I can find it online? Eh well that's because when I really enjoy something, be it anime or otherwise I know for certain that I'll watch it again. Anyways, that's story and I'm sticking to it.

I agree. The new Appleseed movies rock, and should definately be considered. And in order never hurts smile
Posted by: otakuden

Re: DVD Collection - 10/30/08 09:47 AM

definitely watch them in order. the second movies occurs months after the first movies ending. there will be some tie-ins and character developments which will not make as much sense without the first movie. hm... now i'm going to have to rewatch it smile

yeah. i got the first one years ago because i was/am a huge fan of the manga. probably his best manga work, imo. GiTS was ok, but Appleseed was a world unto itself which, of course, he hasn't and will never finish despite rumors otherwise :P

it is officially the holiday season for me. how is that? i just put in my Sailor Moon christmas cd laugh

But it stays on subject and it is awesome for it. That was one of my eBay finds; I got that box set for $10. The guy had bought all the disks individually as they came out but for some reason bought the "collection" set thinking it was better and sold his. I even have the sheet or what ever it was that the pack in was. I didn't have the heart to tell him that it was the exact same thing he already had.

ditto. Midori Days was one of those very pleasant surprises where i expected it to be average and forumlaic. suffice to say, it took all this preconceptions and threw them out the window. excellent anime, and the boxset of 3 dvds can usually be found for dirt cheap.
Posted by: LuckySeven

Re: DVD Collection - 11/01/08 10:25 AM

Yeah, I've also seen Midori Days and it was a good little anime. Once I get all of my buy it before I have to get ripped off looking for it on eBay stuff out of the way it will certainly find a way on to my ever growing little anime shelf. This is one of those under the radar shows that I love getting my hands on. I'm glad this one came out before Media Blasters started going in its current subtitle only direction. Otherwise I fear I might not have even given it a look at all.
Posted by: Hobby Ninja

Re: DVD Collection - 11/01/08 11:59 AM

I first saw 'Midori Days' at a con and was shocked by the (obviously naughty) possibilities. The author of the manga had difficulties talking to people about his work that hadn't seen it. What I had seen stuck with me and I felt compeled to buy it and the manga when it became available. I must say it still is one of the best things I've ever seen. The manga is very enjovable as well and contains much more material and characters than the anime. Both provided some of the best laughs I've ever had.
The true measure of how an unlikely premise can be made into an extraordinary tale can be seen with this series.
I will go as far as say it is one of the best love stories ever told.

i don't know if it is the best, but it is definitely up there with the best. too bad it's so hard to get people to check it out since the initial premise, like you said, smacks of stereotypical cheesy naughty bits.

Re: DVD Collection - 11/08/08 12:44 PM

Yeah! I have the series. The title is OOP and I managed to grab the last copy of volume 2 from this site about a year or so ago.

It's a four episode traditional mecha OVA, with quite a bit of fan service on the side. It had a unique premise, when it came to the main character (she's a gamer). Unfortunately, the series didn't have a proper ending. However, it was pretty enjoyable and was worth the $10 ($5 for each volume) that I paid for.

Re: DVD Collection - 11/16/08 05:38 PM

Geobreeders? I've just barely heard of that one. Never gave it much thought when I did. The first and only time I ever heard of it was at of all places a video game store. So at the time I brushed it off as another show trying to capitalize on the Pokemon craze. I really hadn't heard of it since. But now that its been brought up, is it worth bothering with?

So as you can see, my collection has out grown its bounds. So because of this fact I have decided to expand my empire.

And update

Started to fill them, this will be the first time I have had my TV and Movie DVDs out on display in over 2 years.

Spill over anime and 2nd shelf that I will probably need in the next year or so.

yes and no. even the manga on which it was based was rather convoluted. not quite as much as the anime, and after reading the manga, i was able to make better sense out of the anime, but still...

if you can find it cheap somewhere, then i think it's worth it. if nothing else, it's fun, wacky, and will have you laughing quite a bit smile

Re: DVD Collection - 11/17/08 12:02 PM

long time lurker: wherebouts did you find those racks? Those would be ideal for my ever growing dvd and now anime collection. slightly angled back like that looks like a good setup.
Posted by: long time lurker

Re: DVD Collection - 11/17/08 12:56 PM

Got them at a very exclusive home furnishings store called Wal-Mart. And they run $20 each.

They are pretty cheap and don't always come out straight when first put together. But they do "relax" a little over time and straighten up. That’s why the new ones have shims *the bookend things that I didn't install because I don't need them* under the bottom shelf right now to keep them from falling away from the wall and the old ones don't.

And yes, the angled back thing is pretty nice because it makes it easier to read the label and get a hold of the disk itself. But at the same time that’s why it was getting dangerous to keep stacking. The DVDs on the top of the top row rest on the wall and given enough time will actually act like a wedge and push the top of the rack away from the wall and knocking the unit over.

Re: DVD Collection - 11/17/08 05:03 PM

Those are nice. Kind of like my little black Game/DVD cabinet thats at the front of my bed. I put "To Watch" anime, "To Read" manga, Oddball anime sets like the Gantz ball, and all my games in it. My PS3 rests on top of it in the vertical position, and It's right below my mounted LCD tv.

What I really want are some fully inclosed, perfectly sealed, stands. I don't think I would want my anime collection out in the open like the stands you have. I'd worry to much about dust, bugs, or someone knocking over the stand.

Re: DVD Collection - 11/18/08 12:04 AM

Heh, what are the odds? I haven't checked the forums for the last few days because I've been completely reorganizing my anime room as well. I'm afraid I've added the last shelf I'm going to be able to fit in there. I fear major containment loss when that fills up. Anyway, your collection is shaping up nicely LTL.

BTW, as a side note to those getting "fancy" shelves, never sink a ton of money into nice shelves thinking you have a 186" wall when you actually have a 168" wall. Damned lysdexia....

Re: DVD Collection - 11/18/08 12:12 AM

Thanks

I plan to get a nice one at some point, well build one actually. But the DVD holder inserts that I was looking at would run me over $300 by them self. But there would be enough to hold 512 singles.
Posted by: LuckySeven

Re: DVD Collection - 11/18/08 07:03 AM

Eventually I'm going need a set of shelves myself. There's only so much room on the one I'm currently using, and it was made books in the first place.

On topic: As soon as my order with all the singles of Chobits and Girls Bravo arrives, I'll update my collection photo. smile

Choits wasn't bad. It's a nice little SF show. Though the manga was better.

Girls Bravo-don't waste your time unless you like some 'bounce' in your mindless anime shows. smile

Well I have seen both, though with Chobits I may have missed an episode or two since where I saw it online didn't exactly label some of the episodes correctly. Regardless, I've been more interested in romantic type anime series for some reason. In contrast to that I have seen Girls Bravo as well before so I know what I'm getting. I always hear it discussed as one of the worst anime series, but I never thought it was all that bad when I saw it. Even with all of that negative feedback on it, I will give the show another chance since I think it at least redeemed itself somewhat by the end.I can't say 100% that I'm getting it for myself, it was at the request of my younger brother who seems to be getting more interested in anime. He's too young to have a job and buy it himself so on the rare occasion that he makes a request I try to fill it for him. This is much better than Eiken anyways (which he also requested). Also, once I take care of a few more get 'em before its gone things on my own list, I'll look into the other stuff he's asked me about like Negima (mainly because he saw the trailers for the spring and summer OAVs), Kodocha, and Ouran High School Host Club. I wanted two out of those three myself already.

Well not pure straight up romance, but with romance as one of the main themes. I have Ai Yori Aoshi, Koi Kaze, Please Teacher, Please Twins, and Rumbling Hearts. And too a much lesser extent I suppose you could count The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya as one too.

i thought Chobits (anime and manga) was one of CLAMP's weakest new titles. with the exception of tsumomo, the series was meh. i couldn't place my finger on it, but just lacking the usual warped heart and soul that makes CLAMP, well, CLAMP laugh

I have both Ai Yori Aoshi and Ai Yori Aoshi Enishi. I've been holding out on Enishi because its something I want to save. Good thing for me tho is that Please Teacher and Please Twins just shipped today. Hope they are worth it smile.

Personally, I loved Chobits. My wife also loved it and bought the manga as well--She liked the anime better. I haven't seen any of Clamp's new titles. As far as romance titles, Boys Over Flowers comes to mind: Strong female character, lots of drama, great story.

Re: DVD Collection - 11/20/08 08:25 PM

I enjoyed 'Chobits' very much. You can't stick your head in an Anime Con without seeing a couple of persecoms. Got 'Girls Bravo' in my pile but haven't got to it yet. The Bravo manga was full of fan service and naughty humor. Even though it was a series of running gags that went on too long, I still thought of it as a guilty pleasure.grin

Well I gotta say if you're prone to emotional moments, then keep a tissue box close by when you finally do watch Rumbling Hearts. Its only fair to warn you that it gets pretty depressing at some points. Best to have a pick me up anime to watch after you finish. There was stuff that bothered me A LOT, so I ended up watching the whole thing in one day because I just couldn't leave it in the more depressing parts of it.
Posted by: Otaku Review

Re: DVD Collection - 11/20/08 11:38 PM

Rumbling Hearts is such a great series though! This is a series that had me literally screaming at the television trying to convince the main characters that they're being morons. I grew so emotionally attached to these characters that it was very hard not to want to see them just be happy. It even comes with a very satisfying ending. Can't beat that I suppose.

Chobits is a definite must see, as for X and Code Geass-tried em'-didn't like em'. One little Clamp oddity you might try to find is Miyuki-Chan in Wonderland-a wild take on Alice in Wonderland-it's only 30 minutes long.

some of the newer CLAMP works have been bit or miss with me, and with quite a few other CLAMPholics, though you will always have those who love their works no matter work simply because they are CLAMP.

my personal favs are:
Magic Knight Rayearth
Card Captor Sakura
Angelic Layer
xxxHolic
CLAMP in Wonderland
Miyuki-chan in Wonderland (with the most addictive repetative jingle. ever.)
RG Veda

Yes you do, it was one of my earliest anime purchases. Though I'll admit I only got it because I couldn't find ANY Ranma ½ (which I bought while I was in Cuba during my Navy days) for sale locally. That and Appleseed which is still my only purchasing regret as far as anime goes. Took me a while to finally get around to owning a DVD player that's why I have tapes like the Urban Vision release of Wicked City. Only thing missing from the photos are my VHS copies of Ninja Scroll, Ghost in the Shell, and Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust. They've been lost to a cousin that likes to borrow things and unwittingly lend them out to other people, who lend them out to other people, etc...

It has been a two-way street, as from him I've borrowed Ai Yori Aoshi, Elfen Lied, Gungrave, Last Exile, Noir, and Samurai X: Trust and Betrayal... all but Noir and Samurai X I've eventually purchased for my own collection. ...my friend is currently being deployed to Iraq right now, though, so he's in my prayers.

I dunno-I got rid of the last of the vhs tapes I had about 4 years ago-I still have a few that were never released on dvd such as Capricorn. I have about 2000 anime dvds-not including my homemade ones-I'll probally never post any pictures of my collection-I don't like to visually brag.

Well if you take another look, I have replaced a few things in my VHS collection with DVDs. The rest of the ones I feel are worthy I'll get to like the Tenchi Muyo OAVs, Vampire Hunter D, and Bloodlust, maybe Ranma ½. Others like Appleseed I may just chuck into the trash.

Hey tho everyone. I need a good place to buy japanese CDs. Just recommendations is all. I've looked at cdJapan.co.jp, but I wanna know I'm not the only one buyin'. After getting about 15 eps into Gundam SEED Destiny I heard the OP theme Pride by HIGH and MIGHTY COLOR, and I have to get the Goover cd. cool I could settle for a soundtrack, but the band sounds kinda nice after a few preview clips from cdJapan.

Hmm.. So you don't like to "visually brag" but the ordinary kind is ok? Methinks you are trying overly hard to repress a latent urge to post some pics of your stash. After all, this thread was started on the premise of "visually bragging", presumably without judgment. So loosen up a bit and partake in the spirit of the thread; indulge a bit and brag the right way instead of putting others' collections down with the "mine's bigger" stuff. So you've got a big collection. Awesome! Lets see it.

You must have a fairly impressive collection. I intentionally limited myself on storage space for anime to avoid over-accumulating series that I don't really enjoy. I have to be certain I'll want to see it a second time for me to keep it after watching it. I foresee myself trimming down another 50 titles or so out of my collection (as I haven't finished watching everything I have) which will then yield your collection 6 times larger than mine, and maybe even 7 times if you buy more stuff as that happens.

Sweet. It looks like you've got some great titles in your collection including several that many consider classics. I can't wait to see your pics. You may not be able to inline your pics into your post because of the forum settings. Thus far people have been posting links instead.

I agree with you on Rune. I love the Galaxy Angel franchise but Rune was a complete letdown.

Classics huh? I have a dvd of Robot Carnival-no it's not a vhs to dvd transfer, I do have a vhs to dvd of Capricorn and I'll have to dig into my collection to find more-that's the problem-my collection is so big and I've never properly inventoried it-several times I've bought more than one copy of the same thing! And I'm proud of my collection.

IIRC, a long time ago Robot Carnival was mentioned in ANN's Buried Treasure article. I could swear I saw a copy at a local brick and mortar store the year before but I brought it up on the articles forum thread and the only DVD version anyone could confirm was a bootleg. It's nice to hear that maybe I was actually sane and there was an actual legitimate domestic release. If so then there's hope that I might actually be able to find this and see it (which I've wanted to since hearing about it).

If you've put a lot of time, money and/or love into it, then there's nothing wrong with that. The latter reason is why I like to see peoples' pictures of smaller collections as well. It's interesting to see what titles people treasure most when they're on a tight budget and have to carefully select each show they buy.

Yes, I agree. In fact I am sometimes more envious of the nicely displayed small collections as opposed to the big pile of cardboard boxes full of DVD collections like mine.

Re: DVD Collection - 01/27/09 09:56 AM

Actually it was never released on dvd in the us-only on vhs by Streamline video-my dvd is an hkdvd-but you can't call it "bootleg" because the us rights are long since gone and it's an R2 rip.

How unfortunate. As far as I'm concerned any unauthorized reproduction and distribution of content for which the original rights holder receives no compensation is bootleg enough for my book (regardless of its regional license status). I think I'll hold out hope that the license will get rescued someday and perhaps it'll see a re-release on DVD.

When I was an anime newbie first starting out I unknowingly bought a fair amount of bootlegs online. Shortly after I figured out why some of my collections looked so "different" from [what turned out to be] the legitimate items, I purged my collection of all the bootlegged content tainting it and replace what was available with their legitimate counterparts. There are many titles like this that I'd love to see some day but, after working so hard to get my collection to where I'm happy with it, I couldn't bear to tarnish it with knockoffs or bootlegs.

I wasn't courting a "discussion", drawn-out or otherwise. I simply felt compelled to clarify why, despite your offer of a more forgiving definition, I won't be adding it to my collection. That said, I still look forward to your collection pics. Until then, cheers!

Fine by me-old saying-"Lets agree to disagree". In the end it really doesn't matter how big or how small your anime collection is-it's how much you enjoy it. But I guess it's human nature to be competive-like the little kids at the playground argueing about who's got the biggest rock or whatever.

Random thought... If you're in a store reading the back of an anime DVD case, and it says, "Starring the vocal talents of Lenny Bruce, Richard Pryor, George Carlin, Sam Kinison, Andrew Clay, Martin Lawrence, Chris Rock, and Lisa Lampanelli," is that a bad sign?

It's a close call but if you throw Shatner into the mix then I'd consider it a must buy (in the "so bad it's good" sense).

Also pictured is a portion of the manga/graphic novels/light novels I own. It's not everything, but it is everything that is organized at the moment. I need to get some book shelves before I can organize it properly.

Yep, that's the bags they are. After I've read something I try to bag it. My room tends to get dusty (we run a pellet stove just a few feet from where all my manga are) so I like having them inside the bags.

I hate to tell you but about 1/2 of what you listed wasn't anime-your anime collection is what we're interested in.

Re: DVD Collection - 03/23/09 11:35 AM

I don't have a camera so no pics... For now.
Will post them once I get my hands on one.
List is a little long for me to post it, but I will give the numbers for the record.
Different Series: 176
Of those 93 are completed.
Not including 24 movies.

I just completed this. It's 100% up to date with perhaps the exception of a few items being borrowed by a friend & 1 title that does not seem to be in there server. ..But it's a cr*p title, so I don't really care.
I have my collection broken up into types of films. ..If all you are interested in is anime, then simply check out anime & then give a quick browse through my BluRays. ..Aeon Flux & Teen Titans are both under television.

Posted by: Gevin

Re: DVD Collection - 03/31/09 09:38 AM

There's not much of anything positive to say about it. ..Unless perhaps you never had any experience with the animated series, then it is quite possibly a great film. I wouldn't know. I picked it up on BluRay for completist reasons.

Re: DVD Collection - 03/31/09 07:18 PM

Well-one thing I found out is that Diebuster 2 the movie is awesome-I saw a little bit of it at a convention a few days ago an promptly orderd a used copy off amazon the next day and am waiting to watch it when it arrives-I'm a big sci fi fan.

Posted by: Gevin

Re: DVD Collection - 04/16/09 05:21 PM

Yes! I have noticed that the series seems to get a bit of hate on this forum, but I love the show.
..& it doesn't really fit mingled in with the rest of my DVD cases. Right next to it are a few boxes that are empty, only up there so that my dvd cases within the bookcase may have (for example) 6 Escaflowne volumes to the far right of one shelf while the remaining 2 volumes get shoved off the the far left of the shelf bellow.
I can't afford to shove everything over, just so that everything may remain within an art box, that would cause too much empty space. (presently being split up via the above description scenario are Escaflowne, Love Hina, & Evangelion. Not too many at present, but I still can't afford to not be using all possible shelf space. I even removed the series DVDs of Captain Tylor from its "ultra edition" casing & the Blood+ thincases from their "part 1" case. (which is really big, considering that it holds only those 3 thincases, a t-shirt, & a comic book.) The T shirt should have been packed on the outside of the box. Did they assume the shirt would be kept within the box while on display? No! That's silly. The shirt is to be worn with pride to advertise an awesome series. *grumble grumble*
On the bottom of the right shelf you can see my bluray anime & animated titles.

Might I suggest joining www.dvdaf.com as a convenient way to share a list of your collection? You can segregate your collection into subfolders in categories as you see fit. Your collection will be listed along with cover arts & I'm prrrrrretty sure IMDB links. Try it out, it's an awesome site.

I liked Gantz a lot for what it was trying to do. I just wish there had been more of it had been made since the manga's like a couple hundred volumes. At least the show has a "proper" ending though, which is more than I can say for a few other anime shows with a long manga counterpart...

Re: DVD Collection - 05/09/09 02:49 AM

So for no real reason at all I remembered that I had not updated my DVD database for, oh, a year. And even the last time I had updated it I was only about 1/4 done.

I just got done putting over 100 disks into the database for a total of 249 entries. I only was able to get 1 shelf entered tonight. I still have 7 more to go. Now granted, yes there are quiet a few titles on those 7 shelves that are already in the system, but not a very big percentage of them that’s for sure.

I started doing this so I would have a record of what I own for insurance reasons. But it is also a good way to keep track of this stuff. I use a program called DVD Profiler and I HIGHLY recommend it for anyone that wants to log their collection.
Posted by: Gevin

Re: DVD Collection - 05/09/09 07:53 AM

*points to above post by Sorairo featuring quote by myself*
I just visited DVD Profiler & It seemed as if though the program was specifically meant for personal use. The beauty of DVD Aficionado is that it allows you to share your collection with others.
...Actually, I can fully understand somebody wanting to keep up with both systems. 1 for sharing 2 for keeping track of all titles + whatever risque titles that you'd be more preferable towards not bragging about. wink

Sometimes, like yourself, I won't update in a while & it can be a real annoyance to get caught up,... but it's otherwise an awesome site. Only very rarely do I have trouble finding some very old title releases/imports in their database. ...But, so long as the title isn't a bootleg, they allow you to add/edit titles to their dataase, just in case you really want to correct their excluded/in error titles.

www.dvdaf.com
http://gevin.dvdaf.com/owned/anime Mine is fairly up to date. That particular folder is my anime specifically, if you wish, I think their ought to be links within there to explore the nonamime rest of my collection.

Re: DVD Collection - 05/09/09 10:35 AM

Yes, this is more for a personal list of stuff. I wasn't really posting up to continue any conversations just commenting. However there is an extremely healthy online component of DVD Profiler.

What I like most about it, feature wise it isn't stripped down for the free version. Nothing doesn't work, the only real disadvantage of the free version are the cover arts are not high resolution for the front and back of the case. But then it also lets you go in and add those manually if you have them so, eh. All of the info for a disk is provided to the system by users who upload information that isn't already in the system. Once it is uploaded Invelos has people check it out and make sure that it is accurate. Once it is checked out they either update the existing entries, or they straight up add it if it isn’t in there.

To add the disk to your system all you have to do is scan the bar code with a reader or type in the UPC. You can also put the disk into the drive and it will pull all the data for you. I had to do that on my "Dragon half/Puni Puni Poemi" disks because I got them as a combo pack and ADV didn't put barcodes on them.

because I have not registered it, the free registration side at least, I don't really know what all I can do on the uploading side short of having access to their forum and having the ability to upload new data to them. But the one time pay registration will let you upload your list to their system. And I could be wrong but that list might be made available as a link if you wanted to share it. But it is mainly to get it stored some other place incase your computer is destroyed. Hence the insurance use of it. I just keep mine on a flash stick and store it on my personal drive at work.

It is extremely easy to use, just fire it up and go. If I really wanted to produce an online list I would keep my "myanimelist" account updated. I have not even logged into that thing in a year. HAHAH

A lot of the reason why I keep mine constantly updated is for insurance purposes. I personally preferred DVD Profiler back when it was running free, but I haven't used it since they went to a commercial model.

I like updating my profile pretty often just so I can help keep track of what I've ordered before, just to make sure I don't accidentally order something again (although from time to time I've done that like with the special edition of the first volume of Fantastic Children just for the CD and it was cheaper to buy the CD that way than by itself, oddly enough). Although I haven't usually run into an issue with that, I've had a title or two that I just sort of forgot about and would have reordered if I hadn't caught it in the old DVD profile...

I think the only reason why I shy away form Gad Guard is because it's got a rating that seems like it may be a bit on the "tame" side. ...& Then Battle Angel I just don't know anything about at all.

Re: DVD Collection - 05/10/09 09:06 PM

I'm not Joel but I'm all about giving props to Battle Angel when I can. Battle Angel's one of the classic anime shows. Lots of action, some surprisingly emotional scenes, and an awesome heroine. Really something I'd suggest everyone should see unless they have a particularly weak stomach (which seeing as how you liked Gantz obviously isn't the case for you).

And with that I have a plane to catch in 4 hours so I should probably, like, pack and stuff.

Battle Angel is a pretty good sci-fi title, but very short (only 2 episodes). It got quite a bit of phrase in the past and even John Woo wanted to make a movie about it, but nothing came to fruition.

As for Gad Guard, I enjoyed the title but it does have it's flaws. You're right, it is tamed compared to other Gonzo titles, but it does have one heck of a music score and there's plenty of mecha action.

Re: DVD Collection - 05/11/09 10:45 AM

As Joel said, even though Battle Angel is only two eps it's definately worth checking out. I was suprised at how much i enjoyed it the first time that i saw it, that i went out and bought it. A title that should be a must.

Re: DVD Collection - 05/18/09 01:18 AM

Alright, back from a week’s vacation for little more then 24 hours now and I have 4/8 entered into my inventory.

Up to 706 titles now.

I have one shelf of anime left, then 2 of domestic stuff and one of vidi'a games and random stuff.

Re: DVD Collection - 05/18/09 03:35 AM

And the anime section of my DVDs is DONE!!

5/8 shelves

790 titles in the anime section alone. You know, when you see the collection you know it is big. I am personally a little numb to it really. But man, when you see the number and you are scrolling the list all I can think is MAN I have a lot of this stuff!

It's hard to imagine how gross your collection is until you see it quantitatively.

Very nice LP_H. Didn't you build those around a year or so ago? I have to admit, they were pretty sharp in their natural color but either way it'll be neat to see them populated with anime again now that they're on the home stretch.

Ok-here you go. The main bookcase that holds most of my stuff has shelves 2 rows deep-all the slim cases you see stacked in the bookcase hold my home made dvds-I might insert a picture of some of them to show the artwork.

Very awesome pics zrdb. I particularly dig the Dirty Pair cel above the mantle. You've clearly got good taste in old-school anime. Is that framed image from You're Under Arrest also a production cel? Either way it's a great shot. Those Slayers artboxes were neat to see and I wasn't even aware that Kashimashi even had a box set until I saw yours. Good stuff!

I would say about 50% they have gaps between the pieces, not that well if you are concerned about glare on TVs and what not. But I still enjoy them for the most part.

Re: DVD Collection - 06/18/09 11:33 PM

Ooh very nice setup there Krono. I particularly like how you've organized all of your metal cases together on the "heavy metal" shelf. I always love to see an original Cowboy Bebop artbox as well and I'm quite envious of the Escaflowne box. I'm sure it's hard to tell with your DVDs all split up like that but do you have any idea how many disks you've got?

Yes, I missed out on that one, but I hold hope for a future Blu-ray release.

Just for my edification... it's my understanding that the original release of the DVD singles did not have an artbox as an option. The artbox in the photo above was released with the original complete set, and Right Stuf had an exclusive deal to offer empty boxes (from that set) on the side for those who had already bought the Cowboy Bebop singles. Is that the case?

It is one of the original LE numbered boxes that was putt out in '01. Not sure what the Right Stuf ones looked like though.
Posted by: Tsunami3k

Re: DVD Collection - 06/20/09 09:22 AM

Hehe, mine is from that same era (#5087). I'd have killed for that TRSI exclusive as the set was rather pricey in '02 when I got it. Sadly I had not yet discovered them.

I think that I'll never do a proper inventory of my collection-but suffice to say I probally have most everything in one form or another (dvd, fansub, vhs, hk anime dvds, etc.)

Re: DVD Collection - 09/21/09 12:31 AM

yeah....I am too lazy to inventory my anime as well. Though I don't have as an extensive list as some others I do have a good collection.

I keep my anime dvd/game collection in a small closet in the computer room. At the current rate of expansion, I will need a much bigger room very soon. Those rightstuf sales are just too damn tempting.

Don't have too much at the moment, but whenever I manage to get a job, I plan to change that. Currently, though:

.hack//SIGN volumes 1-6 (complete)
Ergo Proxy volumes 1-5
Eureka Seven volumes 1, 3-10, 12
Gasaraki volumes 1-8 (complete)
Ghost in the Shell
Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence (Dreamworks' version frown)
Haibane Renmei two-disc box set (bootleg)
Mushishi box set (thinpak)

I have officially surpassed the 1000 anime discs mark.....

now add the other 1700 discs from tv shows and movies and it's no wonder i store everything on a computer network for streaming.
simply wading through the boxes to find something to view would take all night.

btw, it takes about 18 Terabytes of space to store all those discs......

for anyone looking for a good cataloging program that's easy to use, free, can be used as a backend for movie players, and will allow you to have a free online website list, you can utilize MyMovies.....

not likely.

most anime thats released is single layer, and very little is actually full DL discs. i'd bet the average is about 5.5gb.

so 2000 titles times 5.5GB = 11TB
even at full 8.5GB, it's only 17TB......

2761 dvd iso's fit on 20TB of storage with about 1.6TB free on my network.

Indeed! Hard to believe, but that's 125 different series and OVAs. Thinpaking really helped with space issues, and thanks to TRSI, it will definitely grow.

I'm going to brag a little bit here, so I'll apologize now.
This figure cost me $25 + shipping. Okay, now that you've picked yourself up from the floor, here's the story.

I found it at a website's clearance section. The description said the item was damaged and would require resin work to restore it. I figured, why not (even though I've no experience in resin)?

When the box shipped, I prepared myself for the inevitable damage. When I removed it, there wasn't even a scratch on it. No broken parts at all. The box was damaged, but that was it.

I sat stunned and was extremely excited. It certainly turns heads, that's for sure.

I highly recommend the Louise figure, if you can still find it. The detail is absolutely incredible, and one of the best I've ever seen. I love Louise, so it was a definite "must have". Worth every penny of the $80 spent for it.

Per your glowing opinion I just ordered it so, if I don't like it, I'll pm you with my address to send the refund check to. ;-P

Your story about the Faye figure is pretty incredible. I hang out on MyFigureCollection.net quite a bit and, while there are some impressive collections out there, I was surprised to see that only one user claims to have that figure. That you got it for $25 is just mind blowing.

P.S. Forget the refund check. Faye will do nicely...

If you don't like it, you'd be the first to say so. My purchase was based on a collector's review, who showed pictures in more detail than Alter's website.
So, be sure to send that address if you don't. I'll be more than happy to buy one for the office.

Well, you had best hope your figure of Louise comes in 1/4 scale resin with a pewter base. Otherwise, you'll only get more snapshots in exchange.

Here's my list so far:

That list also has *all* my animated shows on it, like Disney and such. But it's 90% anime so noone should cry too much. Heh.

I need to take some updated pics since I added a bit more to the shelves. I actually had to take a picture down that was hanging above the anime shelves due to needing more space to stack boxsets. wink

Re: DVD Collection - 07/28/10 10:41 AM

Ah ha! I did have 2 pics of my shelves online afterall. This first one has not changed recently so it looks the same now as when this picture was taken:

http://i50.photobucket.com/albums/f319/balldylox/anime/DSC02260.jpg

Now these shelves have changed since this picture. You can see the picture hanger on the wall in this shot just above the center of the third row of boxsets. That top row that only has 1 or 2 boxes on it is now ALL the way across. smile I'll have to update that picture just because it looks funny with so many things stacked up.

http://i50.photobucket.com/albums/f319/balldylox/anime/DSC02261.jpg


Now before anyone gets upset, I'll tell you now that yes, there *are* some bootleg sets in there. When I first started getting anime sets, I purchased sets listed as "imports" online because they were cheaper. It didn't dawn on me until later that what they really were were bootlegs. That really bugged me afterwards so I have been slowly weeding those sets out of my collection and replacing them with legit R1 sets and discs. This also happened way before I found TRSI's website and I pretty much only buy from here anymore unless something local pops up on Craigslist or in Best Buy on sale.

So I am repenting for my ignorant ways. smile Don't hate me 'cause I'm cheap!


Billy
Posted by: Tsunami3k

Re: DVD Collection - 07/28/10 10:48 AM

Yeah they can be quite official looking; enough so to trick nearly anyone. I unknowingly picked up a few in the early days too but jettisoned the whole lot of them once I figured out what they were. All the more easily forgiven when someone has the Gantz ball, the FLCL artbox and the rather pricey Honneamise BR box set. ;-)
Posted by: baldylox

Re: DVD Collection - 07/28/10 11:29 AM

Yes, some of those boots did look quite official and since I have hardly any places nearby that sell anime in a brick and mortar store setting to be able to see real ones in person, I didn't really know any better. But now that I know which sets I have that are boots, they are going away as soon as I get R1 sets to replace them with. But I'm happy to do replacements as I like to give money to the hobby I enjoy so much. I just don't buy replacements as fast as I buy new shows... wink

And I'm glad you like the sets you mentioned above. smile I got that Gantz set on sale at RS along with the Honneamise BR so they weren't *super* expensive. Still not cheap tho. That Honneamise show was the second most expensive single movie I have purchased. The most expensive was an original 5 Centimeters Per Second DVD. That one cost me $55 shipped for an hour long show. But I still do not regret that purchase one bit as I love that film. I've watched it at least 4 times now since I got it. So I've gotten my moneys worth out of it.

I got very lucky on that Ultimate FLCL boxset tho. When I went looking for FLCL on DVD, nobody had the singles around and every set like this I saw was close to $100 on ebay and Amazon. At the time, I could not figure out why they cost so dang much for only 6 eps. But after some digging around, I finally got that set for $50 shipped from some oddball online store that was having a big sale one weekend. I was very happy when it arrived and it was the real deal.

Re: DVD Collection - 07/28/10 03:01 PM

Actually, I own two of them. laugh

They don't get up on anything other than the chairs and sofa and occasionally the bed. They were trained not to jump up on things while very young. Cats just *hate* flypaper on surfaces.... wink


The stack is very stable tho, even if it doesn't look like it. The way it's arranged now, all the smaller discs are towards the wall with the boxsets out near the ends. They seem to be holding up fine as seen in these updated pics:

Compare the last big shelf pic with this one and you'll see how much space the top row has taken up on the wall. Use the wall hook as a guide. smile

http://i50.photobucket.com/albums/f319/balldylox/anime/DSC02838.jpg

And here are 2 detail shots of the big shelves:

You are quite correct! With the Excel boxset, I got it off ebay about 2 years ago for around $40 shipped. A decent price I think.

And as you stated earlier, this D'Eon boxset was purchased thru RS with the Bargain Bundle setup so it was actually very inexpensive. And I love how the box and single disc cases look, very ornate designs on them.

Now to just clear away the last bit of bootleg stuff I have and I will be very proud of my sheleves.

Posted by: Stefanie

Re: DVD Collection - 08/02/10 09:20 AM

Ah, I didn't know that they did away with the covers for the singles. Even back then, the last couple of slipcovers weren't as fancy as the first few (as ADV's problems became worse), but it's still a beautiful set. As for the show itself, it's a shame that it's not available in 1080p.

Just joined the forums here...figured this would be a suitable first post. I see a lot of nice collections posted - art boxes and such do make for nice presentation. Personally I'm not much into keeping the original packing though, Id rather condense a majority of everything and have it occupy a much smaller space.
You're Under Arrest makes a good demonstration of this (Entire 1st season + Minispecials condensed into Box 3 verses uncondensed):

You're Under Arrest - the condensed version

Anyways, I began redoing the HT system by building shelving to get the majority of the media out of the media center it was in so that a smaller custom cabinet to just hold the A/V equipment can be made. So, originally a majority of my anime was located here:

Drawer View 1 Drawer View 2

And now all of my Anime is located here:

Ah, so you liteboxed (14mm multidisc case) your collection.

That's what I've done with my loose singles (no boxes). However, I put all of the remaining covers and inserts into a folder.

Nice. I store the discs in slim jewel cases and keep those in alphbetical order, but the empty original cases just get stored where there's room, in no particular order.

Ditto. I like looking thru them from time to time and enjoying the art on the covers. But I have lots of space so I can see why some condense thier collections to save space.

Re: DVD Collection - 08/20/10 10:22 PM

The Geneon Samurai Champloo collection was kind of neat to condense because it has matching thinpak covers for volumes 1-2, 3-4, and 5-6. Initially I was going to leave the boxed set alone, but after I saw how the art would be with double disc thinpaks I had to do it even if it meant no more box:

Outer Covers

Inner Covers

I wish there was an 8 disc case that was standard DVD case size (14mm), the most compact cases I have are 20mm that hold 6 discs. I won't condense ones which don't make sense to do so due to already package in a good manner. But all those huge volume series (You're Under Arrest, Initial D, Patlabor TV, ETC..) yeah automatic condensation for those.

I just got around to doing some heavy updating.
I think everything is currently accurate. To see my anime collection you'll have to scour both my anime section as well as my bluray section.
Only section to be missing items (I think) ought to be the "on order" section.

Nice list Gevin. Have you been pretty happy with DVDAF? I'm thinking about moving my list as I've concluded that I'm not cool with having to comb through my entire collection on ANN every few months to re-add dropped entries.

Re: DVD Collection - 08/26/10 12:08 AM

So long as you keep up with it, it's very nice.
..Sometimes I neglect it for too long & it's difficult to remember where I left off.. & since everything gets alphabetized, it's not as if though I can just glance at them in a chronological sense.

I have all of my DVDs/Blurays in the same room as my laptop, so it's not too difficulty to glance around the room & take everything in while still remaining mostly seated.
Of course most of my purchases now'a'days have been entirely bluray. I only get DVD as a last resort (Corpse Princess, My Bride is a Mermaid, Bleach, One Piece, etc..) for series that I suspect are basically "DVD or nothing".

***I've had my DVDaf profile for several years now. I think I tried babblefish or something like that a whiiiile back.. possibly Guzzlefish. In any case, it was crap. DVDaf has kept me happy. It's only a bit annoying when it has something missing, but you can add stuff if you like.

Re: DVD Collection - 08/26/10 10:09 AM

I've had all my stuff on DVDAF for over a year now and had no issues. I have Bluray discs listed right along with regular DVD's, my list is not seperated by disc type. All I do is a search for the show I am looking for and it will list every disc available so I can choose what I want to add to the list, BR or DVD. I didn't even know you *could* list BR discs seperately. smile DVDAF is easy to use and is pretty up to date for whats OOP and what's out there.

I don't suppose DVDAF tracks information such as original aspect ratios vs. disc aspect ratios, or the year the movie/series was originally made/released vs. the year the disc itself was released, does it?
Posted by: Gevin

Re: DVD Collection - 08/26/10 11:00 AM

All bluray is jumbled together.
I made those folders myself, they aren't automatic.
If you click "owned" it shows items that I neglected to specify into folders (basic American films of various genres), then obviously all that I took the time to organize.
I wish that I could do folders inside of folders, this would be most ideal for organizing my blurays.
At home my blurays are organized by anime, DC animated films, Disney/Pixar animated, all other animated, the bulk of live action films, then TV series lastly.
I don't have enough foreign or musical titles to warrant separating.

To tell you the truth, I haven't checked to see if they have that type info or not. And for some odd reason, I can't access thier site from my work computer. Stupid oddball filtering system...

No it doesn't keep track of original or disc aspect ratios. However, they do keep track of the year of the title was made/originally released.

Most of the anime series listed there go as far as listing when each episode originally aired on TV. They also supply the original name of the title in kanji.

Here's my DVDAF list for those that are interested.

Thanks, Joel (by the way, nice profile picture). I was looking through Gevin's earlier, and I didn't see the info, so I just wondered whether it could be turned on/off.

I'm still using a manual HTML list (though I'm a bit behind), so it's more work, but I can customize it at will. I decided it wasn't worth continuing to pay for the web space to keep it online, so now it's just on my computer. I link IMDB whenever they have an entry, and sometimes Wikipedia and/or ANN. I include the dates and aspect rations (OAR and disc) for every title, so I can check them at a glance, as well as any personal notes and favorite actors involved (it's amazing how many times Whit Bissell comes up).

It's nice to have, but I'm considering a lazier option.

I use DVD Profiler, which is a program which runs on your computer and your collection can also be uploaded to their web site. They also have a mobile app that can sync with your online or computer collections. It is Windows phone OS, but they are developing iPhone and Droid apps I believe.

The purchase price is very low and it is a LIFETIME license! I've been using it for years now!

Here is their main website...

Unfortunately, the online version of DVD Profiler is significantly less robust than the offline version by design. Rumor has it they're going to come out with some fancy commercial online version. But heck if I'm going to pay something that just shows online what I have in the offline version. All I really use the online version for is if my house spontaneously combusts and I need a way to prove to insurance that I had the DVDs.

Re: DVD Collection - 03/03/11 10:57 PM

Bumping this classic thread with something that's probably slightly off-topic but I was excited nonetheless (don't hold your breath, I'm just easy to please). After camping on a couple of frames and a suitable variety of matte boards for a year now (because I dread cutting mattes), I finally decided to frame my Aria and Mushi-Shi lithographs.

I measure everything, get myself psyched (I told you, this is a big deal to me), go through my pre-cut checklist, pop the backs out of the frames, Windex(TM) inside and out....all to find out that that *both* of the lithographs fit flawlessly into each of the frames I bought for them. They didn't even need the friggin' mattes in the first place! Crikey...

Outside of feeling a bit stupid for screwing myself out of over a year of their awesomeness, I'm pretty stoked to have them all framed up and ready to hang.

Here's a pic of the monumental event:

http://www.flickr.com/photos/tsunami3k/5496271798/#/photos/tsunami3k/5496271798/lightbox/

If you ever want to spice up your anime room, this is definitely the way to go. My quick pic doesn't do them justice but they look super-sweet.

I had hoped to use my newfound enthusiasm to get myself to frame my You're Under Arrest poster which has been patiently waiting to be hung for 2 years...but unrolling it sucked the momentum right out of me. At 6 feet, it's a whole other battlefield altogether. I don't even know where I'll be able to find an affordable frame for it. (If anybody has any ideas, let me know.)

I have a Dennis Mukai sintra panel that's 44" x 66" (Cathy St. George) that I had custom framed with a glossy black aluminum frame. Because of the size (weight and safety), the art store used acrylic instead of glass, but you really can't tell the difference until you touch it. I can't remember the name and frame style off-hand, but I have it listed in a folder somewhere.

Most art stores that do framing should be able to handle it, though, and they should have a good selection of frames. While the backing you choose for your poster might not be as thick as a sintra panel, it will probably still need a frame that's sturdier than normal. Over the weekend, if I find my frame specs, and if I can take a photo, I'll post them. Maybe this is a good time/excuse to buy a digital camera...

Wow, thank you for going to all that trouble. I have found a couple of local shops that can frame it but @$500 seems a bit much. I admit that it's a coarse analog but I can get a really nice storm door (i.e. two larger metal frames, one glass the other screen) for $300. No, I'm not going to frame my poster in a storm door but it just seems more substantial for about half the cost.

Maybe my shops are just duds. Do you recall how much your frame was?

That's way too much. I got that particular frame back in the late 1980s or early 1990s, so I can't remember. Maybe I'll have some info in my old records. In my experience, the "fine art" stores and galleries overcharge. The "pop art" shops, like they used to have in the malls (Deck The Walls, etc.), did all sorts of framing for pretty reasonable prices, regardless of where you bought your art. It's been a while since I've bought any art (I ran out of walls), so I don't have current info.

Re: DVD Collection - 03/05/11 06:28 PM

Tsunami3k:

Please forgive the complete lack of skill and poor quality photos. This is the first digital camera I've ever owned, and I just learned enough to get these posted. lol The basic frame style I use for all of my art (lithographs, serigraphs, posters, whatever) is the Nielsen 380 in Anodic Black aluminum (1/4" x 3/4"). Here are some Dennis Mukai samples (file sizes = 2-to-3 MB, 4000x3000).

[color:#CC0000]Nan and Caren 1 (first photo, blurry)

Nan and Caren 2 (last photo, clear, but crooked from taking the close shots in-between lol)

Nan - Corner (This shows a closer view of the frame and double white/black mat on Nan.)

Caren - Corner (This shows a closer view of the frame and double white/white mat on Caren.)

Caren - Side (This shows a closer view of the side of the frame on Caren.)


So, that gives you an idea of what I was aiming for when I chose the frame for the sintra panel. Obviously, it couldn't be that slim, but I wanted it too look the same, proportionally to the panel. According to my old scribbled notes from 1990, the big frame below is a Nielsen N-71-20 in Glossy Anodic Black aluminum (1/2" x 1 1/2"). I don't know what the numbering means, but I do feel pretty nerdy for still having this info tucked away in my files. lol

Cathy St. George (I couldn't get the whole thing in one shot without moving furniture. Sorry it's dark; I had to turn off the overhead lights to reduce the glare.)

Cathy St. George - Corner (Here's a close-up of the big frame.)

Cathy St. George - Left Side (Here's a close-up of the frame's left side; good view of the width.)

Cathy St. George - Right Side (Here's a close-up of the frame's right side.)


So, compared to the pictures they're framing, the big one has the same minimalist look of the regular size frame.

I really like the art and the understated frames. That's exactly what I was hoping to track down for my YUA poster. While I can understand giving art a respectable presentation, too often an overdone frame can end up attracting attention away from its contents. Thank you for your glorious nerdiness.

I had long written of black aluminum frames because I thought they'd all look as bad as some of the crappy ones I already have but your pics prove there are far better variants out there. Thanks for the Nielsen link too. Oddly enough the US doesn't seem to be in their dealer finder dropdown...hmm....

Heh, we both thought you meant Tsunami3k's. wink

Those are limited edition prints from Dennis Mukai (see gallery here). The edition sizes are usually 200-to-500 for that type of thing, but the sintra panel posted above is a very limited edition of only 38 (mine is 34 of 38). I got into Mukai's work because I'm a fan of Patrick Nagel, and Mukai was a student of his. Nagel incorporated some Japanese art styles into his work, with the black/white contrast between skin and hair.

Both artist use minimal detail to interpret femininity, but they produce drastically different results in conveying femininity types (at least IMHO). To me, Mukai's women have softer, more subtle personalities, whereas Nagel's seem powerful, uncompromising... even harsh. In an art book I have, Nagel is quoted as saying that the women in his paintings probably drink a lot. lol Then again, he also said he modeled their general look on his wife.

Mukai has moved to other things, and here is some of his more recent work: Dennis Mukai Paintings.

You're welcome, and thanks for giving me a reason to finally buy a camera. lol In my opinion, a frame's purpose is not to draw attention to itself, but to separate the picture in question from the rest of the universe. Obviously, some disagree.

I wish I had more current information, but I haven't bought much art since the mid-1990s. I'm sure there's a store somewhere near you that has something identical or pretty darn close.

Didn't he also have some of his work published in Playboy in the eightys along with Nagels? I love Nagel too and have an artbook of his work. I like that he and another of my favorite pin-up artists, Vargas, got to do album covers of groups I listened to in the 80's. Nagel did the cover art for Duran Duran's Rio and Vargas did Candy-O for the Cars. Later on a pin-up from George Petty showed up on the Cars album Heartbreak City. I'm a pin-up art freak.
When I think of 80's icons, I think of Nagel, Nu-Wave and Miami Vice. smile
I also have some anime posters I would love to be able to put up on the walls.

I suppose walking into my place is a bit like walking back into the 1980s... and in some ways, the 1100s. wink And "Take On Me" is a good song and a good video... as is "Rio." I miss being able to turn on the TV 24/7 and watch those videos. Youtube just isn't the same.

So I guess my adventures turned me into a framing fool. I went to the hobby store where I got my original frames just to see if anything caught my eye and, sure enough, they had a sale. It's fair to say that they very consistently have frame sales so it's not a rare treat by any measure but I figured that, while I was all pumped by how good my lithographs looked, I should at least check out some more frames while I'm still motivated. The end result:

The cels I think I've had for less than a year but I just checked my e-mail and I'm somewhat ashamed to say that I found that TRSI shipped me the FLCL poster in December of '05....lol, wow!

Re: DVD Collection - 06/20/11 12:41 AM

I am reaching the end stretch of quite possibly the dumbest/most expensive thing I've ever done with anime buying/collecting that I decided to do a month ago.

From 1997-2008 I bought a grand total of 4 series and like 10 movies/ova. In summer 2008 I fell off the deep end and I started buying anything I could as cheaply as I could without regard for its format (whatever was on sale, in the bargain bin, found used, imports for expensive OOP stuff, etc.). I then decided to replace all my imports with officially licensed product (when available). By mid 2009 my shelves were overflowing and I decided to replace all of my art box and individual volume sets with thinpaks where available. This alleviated my shelving problem but cost an extra ~$10 per set on average to make the switch. I also passed on art box/volume sets I found used or buying volumes/art boxes from the bargain bin from that point on.

After four major cut downs on my collection shelving wasn't an obstacle and I decided to go back to Art boxes and volumes for everything (unless there's a BD release)... unfortunately I waited about 6 months too long and now a lot of it has become scarce on a wholesale level and inflated in price. This conversion is averaging about $8 per set (above what I'm able to sell the old ones for) but considering I have about 8 expensive art boxes left it will likely inflate to around $12-15 per set on average for no purpose except to satisfy my OCD hunger. It may climb even higher if the locals in my area continue to be tightwads on craigslist (there seems to be a belief locally that any price involving more than 1 digit is too expensive for a complete anime set).

I also want to punch myself in the face for not buying Welcome to the NHK Volume 6 when it was available. I'm debating buying the SAVE collection to put in my art box in place of volume 6 for now.

My final keeper list:

* = Incomplete
** = Needs the Art Box
*** = Plan to replace with Art Box/Volumes
**** = Plan to replace with BD
# = Doubt I'll replace it with BD
## = Doubt I'll replace it even though it's inconsistent with my collecting preferences

Hehe, yeah. I've never minded having loose volumes without art boxes... and I actually kind of like having the clumped volumes together, but preparing for unforseen/unpredicted resale possibilities I definitely go for the art boxes when I can. However I'll never spend more than $25 for one (and ideally closer to $10) and so sets like Paranoia Agent will likely stay loose volumes unless I get really lucky sometime.

I guess this latest cut-down really had me evaluating what I wanted to keep for the long haul. Basically anything that I haven't had the itch to re-watch since its first viewing got axed since I found I would rather watch Beck for a 6th time or Berserk for a 4th time, etc. than watch Witchblade for a 2nd time. I figured if it was something I enjoyed that much I may as well have it in the format that I want most.

As for Ghost in the Shell, I always felt the original movie was severely over-rated. It took me like 9 tries to get through it without losing interest (I thought the animation was cool but they never made me care about what was going on). I've had both GITS SAC's on my shelf unwatched (and unopened) for like 3 years now.

He's got a funny history as to why I keep him in a cabnet.
Every time I tried to display him out in the open something would fall on him or drop; causing his hand to fall off. I've had to crazy glue it on more times than I'd like to remember. The last straw was when he got knocked down and not only his hand but one of his fingers came off. I got it back on but since then I've kept him in the cabnet.

Also, Katanagatari Vol. 1 Premium Set shipped from NIS America today!

Re: DVD Collection - 07/04/11 01:32 AM

Well, almost everything I've ordered has arrived so I figured I'd take a picture or two. My anime/video game room is a 7' x 10' converted walk-in closet ever since I had to give up my 20' x 15' room to my gf's son. Luckily it has 3 levels of shelves that run the entire length of the room starting at about 5' off the ground so I had plenty of spots to stash stuff. There is also a couch and a 7.1 surround setup in there which is somewhat comical considering you end up sitting about 3' from the tv.

The shelves being that long and the room being that narrow wasn't all that conducive for pictures though, so shelves 1 and 2 are split into parts.


Shelf 1: [img]http://i408.photobucket.com/albums/pp166/zentropa7/shelf1.jpg[/img]

My old hdcrt tv took a dump and I didn't have the moolah to buy a 1080P Panasonic plasma (which is what I've been lusting after for a few years) so I ended up getting a used 16:9 hdcrt tv-what you ask does this have to do with an anime collection? Well, since my old tv was a 4:3-watching stuff in it's native 16:9 aspect ratio is very nice-next time it's the Panasonic or bust.

Thanks.
It was a gradual process of cutting down from ~350 (most of which I hadn't watched) to ~220 to ~140 to ~70 and then doing the switch-over to art boxes.

I repurchased most of those titles... anything that had a thinpak (aside from Fushigi Yugi and Fighting Spirit) was in thinpak form... so 009-1, Ah My Goddess, Baccano, Beck, Berserk, Black Lagoon, Cowboy Bebop, Death Note, Desert Punk, Elfen Lied, Ergo Proxy, Escaflowne, Fruits Basket, Gankutsuou, Get Backers, Glass Fleet, GTO, Gun X Sword, Heat Guy J, Ikki Tousen, Initial D, Kanon, Kyo Kara Maoh, Last Exile, Love Hina, Maburaho, Mahoromatic, Moon Phase, Mushishi, Paradise Kiss, Rurouni Kenshin, Saikano, Speed Grapher, Suzuka, Tenjho Tenge, Trigun, Twelve Kingdoms, Utawarerumono, Vandread, Welcome to the NHK (Pending vol 6), When they Cry, Witch Hunter Robin, X, and XXXholic were all re-purchases/re-acquiring.

Thankfully about 1/3rd of it I was able to get via trade with someone I had originally sold my art box or volumes to with a small "kicker" to boost my trade value (I threw in a few series I decided to get rid of and not replace). Most of these were not really difficult to replace, it was more of a price issue. e.g. it was very difficult to find a Cowboy Bebop art box for a reasonable price but I managed to get lucky. The ones

The ones that were VERY difficult to track down were Black Lagoon Second Barrage, and Kyo Kara Maoh Season 2, and Speed Grapher LE Vol 4, and When They Cry as those volumes are very sparse out there.

The ones that I ended up having to spend much more than I wanted to (e.g. ~double what I sold the Thinpak for) were Baccano (sold for $15, cost $34 to replace), Elfen Lied (sold for $15, cost $33 to replace), Kanon (sold for $15, cost $48 to replace), Kyo Kara Maoh Season 2 (sold for $40, cost $87 to replace and got the art box as a gift), and that stupid Escaflowne art box (ran me $25 in trade just to get the box).

There were a handful of volumes that I had to buy more than once to get decent condition ones. Most of them I got refunded on the "bad ones" by the place that I bought them used from via mail. This happened with roughly 35 volumes and 3 art boxes although I did get quite lucky and had 3 art boxes end up showing up with all of the volumes instead of just volume 1.

Vandread has been the bane of this though. It took 3 times acquiring all 8 volumes to get 1 set of volumes that are "good enough" and the art box I received is in crap condition and will be replaced. I also regret not just buying the GTO box sets out of the gate (I had a trade lined up for one of the art boxes by itself but it ended up being torn).

All in all, assuming I'm able to sell off all of the replaced titles for even 50% of amazon market value this will have run me about $300 above what I got for the sets that were getting replaced in both trade value + cash.

Yes, I am thankful for that. Before I moved in with my GF my entire living room was basically a media and guitar display area heh.

My old hdcrt tv took a dump and I didn't have the moolah to buy a 1080P Panasonic plasma (which is what I've been lusting after for a few years) so I ended up getting a used 16:9 hdcrt tv-what you ask does this have to do with an anime collection? Well, since my old tv was a 4:3-watching stuff in it's native 16:9 aspect ratio is very nice-next time it's the Panasonic or bust.


I still like the look of HDCRT TV's better than most of the newer sets but you almost need a forklift to move some of the bigger ones.

I have the very same set. It's paramount for any fan of Robotech. The Protoculture Collection is sweet! I don't think most anime fans are aware of the scope of Robotech's role in bringing anime to western shores. It really broke the mold for so many American animation lovers.
Robotech was one of the first cartoons stateside to be serialized. Wondering what will happen episode to episode added a whole new dynamic. It also was vanguard in it's portrayal of violence. There was an element of realism to the action that added weight acts of violence. In fact, in one scene in particular blood was edited out for broadcast. Robotech also was a pioneer in the realm of drama in animation.
In addition to the Protoculture Collection I have the following:
Robotech The Shadow Chronicles
Super Dimension Fortress Macross 9 disc subtitled edition
Super Dimensional Cavalry Southern Cross 5 disc subtitled edition
Genesis Climber Mospeada 5 disc subtitled edition
(the latter 2 are boxed together)
I've been toying around with the idea of getting Macross II and Macross Plus, but am still unsure.
Posted by: zentropa

Re: DVD Collection - 07/05/11 09:06 PM

I watched Robotech on UHF back in the early 80's and really didn't care for it. It wasn't until ~98 when I found it at a video store and rented the entire Macross Saga and watched it in like 2 days that I really took to it. Voltron and Robotech were my introduction to anime.

I never did care for Southern Cross or Mospeda (the Robotech versions) and I actually kind of despise them heh.

I went through 3 import sets of subbed only SDF Macross before I finally found one with decent subtitles. I ended up ditching that when I managed to score an SDF Macross ADV thinpak on clearance at suncoast. Macross II sucks. Macross Plus is good but I actually preferred the movie version to the OVA's. Macross Zero is superb. Macross 7 is kind of meh but it's definitely a good continuation if you want to see Max and Miria 30 years in the future. Sadly, to get all of the references and knock offs in Macross Frontier you should see 7.

Yes, now that you mention it, Voltron was also very influential. BTW that was a whole lot of Robotech/Macross info.

Re: DVD Collection - 07/06/11 07:29 PM

I never cared for Robotech-but I've seen the latest Macross movie and thought it was quite good.
Posted by: zentropa

Re: DVD Collection - 07/06/11 09:37 PM

There's lots of Macross info to be had heh.

The story of the later Macross series is based upon the Macross Do You Remember Love? movie and not the actual Macross series (both the events and character designs). It sort of sucks considering the only release of DYRL was known as "Robotech: Clash of the Bionoids" and was VHS only, although that VHS goes for like $0.25. My tape of it snapped the first time I tried to play it so I can't comment on whether or not it was doctored in the way that Robotech was.

Macross II was written out of the storyline if I remember correctly as if it never did (nor ever would) happen.

Voltron brings back memories but when I bought the first tin of it when it got released I was sorely disappointed. Even the grammar errors in the intro narration were like fingernails on a chalkboard.

I've been eyein' up the Lion Force and Dairugger sets as of late. I believe their subbed. Subs are often more accurate than dubs. Plus their uncut.

Thanks for the tip zentropa. BTW TRSI carries both series in complete sets (Beast King Golion/Armored Fleet Dairugger). In addition they have the Fleet of Doom movie to tie it all off with a nice little bow. My wallet quivers with fear. Be strong, be strong. Maybe this forum should start an "OCD completist" support group.

Re: DVD Collection - 07/08/11 01:42 PM

Sorry. In my excitement I made a false statement. TRSI actually only has Armored Fleet Dairugger Collections 1 and 2. I believe there is a collection 3 which would bring the episode list to 52 from 36 to match the episode list from Beast King Golion. My bad. To further darken the completist scenario is the virtual nonexistance of the Voltron II or "middle universe" series on DVD. Now if you'll excuse me I have to go take my pill.

How do their suits stay on?

Seriously though, I've got to say that the creators really "blazed their own trail" with their character designs, particularly the facial features; very original.

http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Macross#Series_chronology

For those people interested in Macross.

BTW yes the Clash of the Bionoids movie was rather edited.

I am not sure if the slightly rarer version called "Macross" (no it's not the show but the movie) is any different.

IIRC Clash of the Bionoids had a rather odd ending. Rick (Hikaru) flys out in his really battle ready (with all the weapons & armor seen really late in the series) then he fights a bunch of Zentradi. Then it cuts back to Minmay getting ready to perform, and does not reveal if Hikaru ever gets back. That's the ending...

Re: DVD Collection - 09/13/11 12:27 AM

There were 2 sets of "armor" for the Valkyries. One set was comprised of forearm guards, calf guards, and back mounted jet boosters. This set held a lot of missiles, extra fuel, allowed for further distance travel, and allowed for full transformation. The other set was comprised of full forearm armor, full lower leg armor, full upper torso armor, and back mounted jet boosters. This set held a lot of missiles and prevented transformation.
Posted by: EricDent

Re: DVD Collection - 09/13/11 12:37 AM

It was the first version.

I have a fully transformable toy if a Valkyrie that has that armor on it.

There was a slight alteration for the DYRL (and IIRC certain characters in SDF Macross may have had it as well) a laser canon was attached to the upper armor near the rocket boosters you mentioned.
Posted by: kiku

Re: DVD Collection - 09/13/11 12:44 AM

Was that the standard issue Valkyrie rifle which normally was attached to the undercarriage of the fighter jet mode? BTW Did you know that Valkyrie with the armor set that you're referring to was used by Transformers? It was renamed Skyfire (Jetfire).
Posted by: EricDent

Re: DVD Collection - 09/13/11 01:54 AM

Yes I know about Skyfire/Jetfire.

The reason they changed his look in the TV show was to avoid any sort of legal trouble. Back when I was a kid I had the option of buying that toy, but I chose to buy 2 smaller Transformers instead. They were Sludge & Blitzkrieg IIRC.

I still have some of the newer versions of Transformer toys, most of them from the G2 line.

Here is an image of the laser guns I was talking about (on the back of this Veritech).

Re: DVD Collection - 09/13/11 02:06 AM

That might be a Veritech from the Shadow Squadron. The Shadow Squadron were the modified Veritechs in Admiral Rick Hunters fleet. They were used on the return voyage in the Sentinels (where the Sentinels and New Generation storyline converge). They were invisible to the Invid, hence the namesake Shadow Squadron.
Posted by: EricDent

Re: DVD Collection - 09/13/11 05:36 PM

Well in the DRYL movie, all the Veritech Fighters had these.

Of course Rick was known in that movie as his original Japanese name, Hikaru Ichijyo.

And they turned out even worse looking then I thought they would.
Be that as it may, here they are.

Im always talking about condensing my Collection, now-a-days I try to make it look more like
real Cover Art, but at first, and sometimes still now, its white background with black lettering.
Im just saying it here, since its so easy to spot the Cases with the white Covers.
So I wanted to explain it to those that may not know or recall.


Pic 1: Left side of computer room and Anime shelve, taken from the hallway
Pic 2: Same side taken from inside the room
Pic's 1 & 2: The lower shelve ( with the Black Rat ) all that white with black lettering you see
is from the Seven 14 disc DVD cases, containing 1 disc, Anime Movies and Ovas.
But there are a couple 2 disc Ovas in there as well, like Elliptical Orbit & Symbiotic Planet


Pic 3: Right side of Computer room, Anime shelve and, 3ft wide Cutaway View Picture of Enterprise
Pic 3: Second shelve from the Top, three Orange 14 disc Cases containing Anime Series and Ovas .
That are Mainly 2 discs sets but there are a few single disc Ovas in there.

Ironically, I just decided earlier today to quit using Filmaf, and changed the link in my sig to my blu-ray.com collection list instead - it was kind of a pain keeping up 2 lists... I think there were more titles missing on Filmaf than on blu-ray.com - especially for imports, anyway... I had submitted a couple requests on Filmaf for some titles they didn't have, but that was real pain collecting all the data they wanted. And, I got most of that information off Amazon anyway - which is what blu-ray.com's collection lists are tied into...

I decided to do a little Re-Organizing .

My "ANIME COLLECTIONS" the ones in the big 14 Disc Cases, were a hodgepodge
of whatever kind of Anime I had on hand at the time, so long as I could fill a 14 Disc Case with them.
There were Series mixed in with Ovas and Movies mixed in with Series, etc .

So I decided to clean it up a bit, now Movie are with Movies, Ovas with Ovas and Series with Series .
It should make thing easier and neater all around.

Looks similar to the shelves I use for my collection.

Kinda tired of Filmaf.com not having the latest versions of some of the shows I own, or want to own (like the Litebox versions of Aria for example).

Anybody try the Blu-Ray.com App?
Since I have a phone, it would be a lot easier to scan in the barcode.

I also dropped Filmaf for mostly the same reason...

I don't use blu-ray.com's phone app - wasn't even aware of one - is it for Droid as well as iPhone? I should check it out, I suppose. I do use their Movie Collection database in their forum as my anime database now (as you can see I link to in my signature)... Their database is very up-to-date on all the more current anime titles from the last 10 years or so, even Imports - the main drawback to their system is they have very few if any of the older "20th Century" anime DVDs, especially Art Box sets, in their database - if you're lucky, they'll have the individual single-disc releases or a newer re-release version to use instead. Fortunately I have very few vintage anime titles on DVD in my collection, since I concentrate mainly on Blu-ray releases, so I'm only missing one or two titles from my collection in my current list.

I have to re-do some of these as some are blurrier than I would like, but here is my collection in pics...

I buy almost anything anime related when it comes to shows. You can tell that as my collection is very diverse. The only thing I really don't care for is horror and hyper gory shows (psychological horror is ok though). I have a few, but I doubt I'll ever watch them.

Anime 1 009-1 Complete is the first title but it was cutoff.
Anime 2
Anime 3
Anime 4
Anime 5
Anime 6
Anime 7
Anime 8
Anime 9
Anime 10
Anime 11 Don't know why I have Paranoia Agent in reverse order. Crappy pic.
Anime 12
Anime 13 Pandora Hearts up top and Ruin Explorers to far left.
Anime 14
Anime 15 Gotta re-do this. Cutoff half off the top row.
Anime 16
Anime 17
Anime 18

My latest haul, yet to be shelved.

Anime on VHS 1
Anime on VHS 2

Re: DVD Collection - 12/05/14 06:45 PM

I was about to buy a Newer Release then the one I have of Chrono Crusade, Divergence Eve and one other, but .

I was looking around the Specials ( and beyond ) and found some Shows that I already have a copy of,
but all the copies I have, have a thicker Case and some have more Discs and some have both.

All of them I had already put into smaller Cases to make more Shelf space,
but all of these Cases were ones Ive done back when it was just black print on white paper with a piece of Art Work from the Anime on the front.
( Ive gotten much better at it these days )
So I was going to go ahead and buy these "Newer Releases", some having fewer discs in them as well as being in a thinner Case.

Then I thought...
Heck, Ive got to take some Cases out to the Garage Attic, so Ill just bring in the Original Cases ( and a couple from other Animes )
and use them to make New Thinner Case Covers for some of the Animes that I just have the Plain Jane Covers for.

Ill get around to doing more of them later, and someday, maybe someday for the ones that have a Newer Release.
I might be able to get the Newer ( Nicer Video/Audio, Fewer Disc, Thinner Case ) Release Someday .

But for now, I'll just make what I have fit, so here are the 5 I did tonight, these were all Wider Case Covers that I scanned and did this and that to so they would fit the 14mm-ish sized Cases I have their Discs in, then I just printed them out
Chrono Crusade
Rumbling Hearts
Divergence Eve
Thos Who Hunt Elves
Outlaw Star

Sometimes, a higher disc count means a higher recording quality; if I'm not mistaken. I've heard that when series get compressed onto fewer discs, the quality takes a hit. It should be noted, that I have no basis for this statement other than heresay; and the fact that it sounds logical. Long story short: it might behoove you to keep your old editions. I would also like to note that this does not apply, if the reissue is "remastered". Generally, remastered editions look great.

That's generally true for crapamation-when they got a lot of stuff from ADV during the Sojitz fiasco and put it on 4 dvds instead of 6 as ADV had done the video quality most definitely took a turn for the worse.

As I'm sure you know Blood+ set 1 is the holy grail and expensive as s**t to acquire-but well worth it.

Re: DVD Collection - 12/12/14 10:52 AM

Oh, yes; I'm well aware. Someone in my financial bracket has to be somewhat choosy about when to purchase mega expensive sets. Generally, I try to keep it under one or two per year.

That's a bad habit B Dub. I guess I've gotten rid of a few anime over the years, but I can count 'em on one or two hands. It's good to be a discerning anime fan, but it's costly to rebuy anime.

Re: DVD Collection - 12/12/14 01:51 PM

I think I got Blood + part one and two for like $120 on ebay about a year ago.... I didn't think it was that bad of a price.... I still haven't got around to watching it yet though lol

I dont see the shirt in the box so maybe not the shirt(although I wouldn't really care about that anyway).... but box 2 was brand new so I still have the hat in plastic...

Agreed on that. I generally only trade or sell anime if I am upgrading from a sub to a hybrid set (I did that with Mayo Chiki and MariaHolic with the current Rightstuf sales) or a remastered set (Dirty Pair).

Even when I upgrade from DVD to Blu-Ray I keep the DVD, 9 times out of 10. Often times it's just because I like the packaging (Samurai Champloo artbox, Black Lagoon Steel Books). Or sometimes it is because I remember how much I paid for it (Ranma 1/2 original DVD releases I paid $600 for). Other times it is because the DVD may have artbooks, audio CDs or other extras that the Blu-Ray doesn't have (Sakura Wars Movie).

I think the only anime I ever traded that I slightly regretted was Zeta Gundam and even then I didn't regret it too much because I was having a hard time finding the last volume and I didn't pay that much for the volumes I had.

Well said GuilewasNK. Strike Witches' original edition is a perfect example of this. The box art is great, plus; it has a printed spread with info on each character's name, rank, country of origin, magical animal affinity, weapon of choice, panties of choice, and Striker Unit. I'll never forget the day I saw it sitting on the shelf. I picked it up, and the first thing I read was: "Winning the war on pants!"

The only stuff I get rid of is when I go from dvd to bluray-even then I'll keep the dvd version if it has extras the bluray doesn't have. I was digging into one of my dvd stacks today and unearthed both sets of Negima + the ova, both sets of Super Gals (boxsets), Brigadoon, Lost Universe (RS boxset), To Heart (boxset), Shingu-Secret Of The Stellar War (boxset-boring as hell), Lost Universe (RS boxset).

.............. crazy ..............

Overall I "may have" broken even, I have made money on many that I have sold, then later re-purchased.
( Meaning: I paid less for them when I re-purchased them then what I received when I originally sold them )

I can't recall all the Titles now but the 2 most recent ones I can recall "making money on" are, Fractal & Shangri La .
In the end I have them ( again ) plus a few extra dollars in my pocket .

And 2 other Titles that I already had I also won a 2nd copy of from Funimation,
so selling the original copy was pure porfit ....

But of course the best thing to do is to not sell in the first place ....

Not like it use to. At the time there were a bunch of single dvds and they had dragonball/z on vhs. A couple months ago I bought my two parts of Thundercats for $5.99 each. I know online they sell much more than that.

Back in 2005-2007, Bandai and Geneon dumped a few of their overstock singles at Dollar General. I remember buying several titles from them.

Welcome to the Forum Zikiyo ! grin
Yes, welcome to the forum Zikiyo! There's some classics there in that collection. I wouldn't mind gettin' my hands on Melty Lancer myself.


I got both discs of Melty Lancer years ago dirt cheap-it's a good watch but nothing extraordinary.

Well, today I cleared off the bottom two shelves on the right-side media shelf unit in my theater room, which had non-anime titles stored on them, and then I started re-arranging my anime collection and adding all my new titles from the November and December holiday sales... Needless to say, I'm all but out of shelf space again, those two extra shelves were barely enough for the all anime I picked up, with so many chipboard box sets hogging up shelf space - so my anime collection now occupies almost all eight 36" wide shelves... I have two full shelves of Japanese Import Blu-rays, 3 full shelves of domestic anime blu-rays, and more than 2 1/2 shelves of DVD anime... and by the time my last few titles arrive in the mail this week and next, that remaining open space should be full. Time to build me another shelf unit, I guess - but I don't have any available space to put it, lol...

I don't have any room for shelving units-what do you expect with 420 square feet of floor space?

It was the Crest/Banner of the Stars Series that got me into Anime


And as you all know it was the Dirty Pair that got me into anime many years ago.


Same here. There used to be this channel/programming called Network 1 that showed Dirty Pair, Fist of the North Star, and a few others I can't remember. This was is the mid 90's and was over UHF TV signals. They used to show bikini contests and stuff too. It was really just a network for guys. I really miss that channel. I think I still have some VHS of it somewhere.

Network 1 looks pretty cool. Apparently they ran episodes of Night Flight. That was a great show! UHF was responsible for my exposure to anime as well IIRC, because that's how I discovered Robotech.
