Got Yu Yu Hakusho Season 1. I've read good things about the HD transfer. Can't wait for Season 2 and 3 in the next couple of months!

Does Amazon ever do post-order price matching?

I just ordered all four of the DBZ Kai Blu-rays listed a few days ago and they already shipped out. It'd be nice to save some money on them.

Yu Yu Hakusho is tempting, although I already have it on DVD and have been watching it at a snails pace. I do enjoy the show though, just so much to watch.

They rarely do now and usually it's on a one time exception type of thing. Just complain a few times and you might get credited back

Does anyone know if the...

Samurai Champloo Re-issue...

... is the same or is a Better Video Quality than the old...

Old Samurai Champloo set?

I googled the heck out of it and found both yes/no contradicting answers.

It's most likely the same transfer, but some have claimed the newer release has been slightly improved. Like you said, the info out there is strangely contradictory, but it seems like you might as well go for the readily available newer version either way.

And damn, I just paid like $5 more for it when it showed up in my gold box a few weeks ago! What a fantastic deal. Plenty of people shelled out $100+ for the DVD set way back when. I'm so glad there's been a movement away from prohibitively expensive prices on anime releases.

Every time a sale like this comes around, I see Claymore for cheap and ask myself why I haven't bought it yet. Then I read the review and remember. Sigh, I think I might just have to break down and buy it because I'm sure there won't be another release. Considering the DVDs are twice the price and technically wouldn't be much better, I guess I should just bite the bullet. This is the cheapest it has ever been by $.50 BTW.

OK, Eden of the East keeps popping up and I must say I'm intrigued, but as a blind buy I wish there was a fansub of the first episode to see if it's for me. I like what I hear but can anyone say for sure it's a must for someone who loved Akira, Berserk, Claymore, Ghost in the Shell (the show not as much, but was still very enjoyable), Blood (not the show, that was god awful), and Samurai Champloo (I know it's an odd list, but I don't watch much anime anymore)? I dig cyber-punk themes, and dark or intellectually deep stories.

Thoughts?

Pretty sure there are fansubs of it out there, plus its also on Netflix. Eden of the East that is.

My wallet! NOOOOOO!!!!!

Seriously, I'm gonna be extra picky and try and save money. If its on Netflix, I won't buy it. Was waiting for a price drop on Initial D Fourth stage below $30 ($21 each right now), and now I'm deciding to save and not buy em. In for Case Closed Season 2 & 5 (only seasons not available on discs on Netflix, saw season 1 and now renting season 3, with season 4 discs on my queue)

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