Anybody that can tell me some review or opinions on some of these: Pumpkin Scissors, Magikano, Moeyo Ken, Solty Rei, 009-1, Str.A.In.?

Other recommendations anyone?

(By the way, there are more than the one mentioned in the Op. Either make a search for S.A.V.E of Amazon or something, but I saw a couple that were reduced in price as well, probably wasn't 50% off, but might be some good deals there)

Edit: Read some reviews of some of these online. Will keep my money for now since I just bought Negima! Box Set, Jyu-Oh-Sei, Blassreiter Part 1, Nabari No Ou Part 1, and Kaze No Stigma Parts 1 & 2 for $10 each, enough to last me a while. Pumpkin Scissors and 009-1 are still tempting though.

Now playing: Diablo 3 (360), Lost Planet 3, Saints Row 4, Rayman Legends, Killzone Mercenary, Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm.

I'm not sure what's happening here, but those titles should be showing up on the first post. I will see if I can get it working.

I'm have only listed releases that are at about 50% off (with the exception of Rumbling Heart: 45% off).

yeah, I noticed some had been listed twice and didn't match the one you posted on DVDtalk. anyways, thanks so much for the post. Always love the ridiculous prices that the S.A.V.E. editions on sale go for :D

Yeargh, I was trying to stop buying anything until A Certain Magical Index, but dangit I need that UFO Ultramaiden Valkyrie to complete the collection... I can't just leave it at two out of four seasons! Also, Solty Rei is above average in my opinion, and a bit twisty in a good way.

I liked Air so I'm tempted to own it, but people are saying the show Kanon is similar to it, so I'm tempted to check that out too...

I own all but 3 of those series. Beck is the only one I don't own that I would be interested in.

I have Beck collecting dust since I bought it on the Funimation random bag sale. Are you first in line on Goozex? (I have it on hold)

Huh, I think I have to finally bite on the Suzuka set at only 9.99, despite a backlog since the last S.A.V.E. discounts on amazon.

Due to how cheap they are, I picked up a few to help reduce some space on my shelves.

It's funimation's value line. Basically no special features but trailers and slimmed down packaging. I've got like 50% off all the S.A.V.E. editions out there. Same quality as funi's regular stuff and for a hell of a lot less.

I'm not big on even watching special features, so cheaper priced stuff is always good for me. :D

That's not exactly true about the special features. Some releases still retain their extras, but because other S.A.V.E. collections are merely repackaged Viridian Collection discs that *did* have their extras removed, some are missing extras as well.

I was going to get Air, but...I just couldn't afford it...I cannot get through Kanon so I prob was right about not getting Air, I ended up getting both School Rumbles and Gankutsuou. I have had my share of big bulky anime boxes so these save bundles come as a godsend to me. I would love to get rid of some of my anime bulky boxes but...
