I'm pretty lost for words at the moment, but I think it is happy. :D

I literally just checked this 2 hours ago too, and it was still $19.99.

But now, $13.99. Enjoy.

And if anyone was wondering, yes, this literally JUST came out.

Ah, whoops, meant to post this about an hour ago but got distracted. I was so excited when I woke up this morning and saw the price drop! Great movie, but don't bother if you haven't seen the TV series first, as this functions as a direct sequel.

I already bought it. Sure, it's only $6 less and I used credit to purchase it but still. Really? D:

To those who enjoyed the series, buy now. You'll need this and the second movie to complete the story and I doubt it's going to get any lower any time soon.

Does anyone know how long will this sale last along with the Summer Wars Blu-ray? I'm soooo tempted to bite.

What does this series compare to? Is it like a Death Note or Ghost in a Shell SAC? The action thriller description sounds interesting but I was not sure if I would like it.

The guy who directed Ghost in a Shell directed this. It involves conspiracies, NEET's, there's a whole undertone of the past vs. future generations and a thrill of intrigue. There's action, but it's not like a fighting anime. The concept is that 12 people were given 10 billion yen to save Japan (from it's social problems). The anime follows Akira Takizawa and the movie is a direct continuation of the show. As others have mentioned; it's on Netflix. Give it a spin and see how you like it.

I'm not sure it can be compared to either of those, but in my opinion, it's also better than both.

Got my package yesterday, and wondering if anyone else thinks the lack of a blu-ray case is putting anyone else off?

I understand it's a dvd/blu-ray combo, but now it looks like ass on my shelf next to me other blu-rays.

Bleh, really? That's an unfortunate decision on Funimation's part.

Yeah, I think that's what they're trying to do with all the DVD/Blu-ray combos, which I hope is not the case, but right now, the decision is meh...

It should also be mentioned the first movie (King of Eden) kind of loses focus and direction. It feels more like episodes 12, 13 and 14 of the TV series in terms of plot advancement.

You will enjoy it as long as you know that the movie is pretty much just a continuation of the series, and not really a standalone movie on its own, persay.

It's definitely lower in quality than the TV series story wise. And just because it was presented as a feature film in Japan doesn't mean you can expect Eva 2.22 or Summer Wars presentation quality all of a sudden. Visually, it's the same as the TV series. And like I said, the plot doesn't really go anywhere in the first movie. It probably should have been released as an OVA.

Guess I won't buy it yet... I have the Snow White dvd/bluray combo that's dvd sized, and that one sticks out like a tumor on my bluray shelf. If the bluray/dvd combo had the same art for the slip cover, I would have gotten that instead.
