So the Soul Eater Blu-Ray Boxsets are $30 & $35, so my question is should I buy it? I loved the show so much, and I really want to own these.

but I really shouldn't be spending money right now, and if I get it I'm just going to watch the extras and shelf it for a while because I have a bunch of other anime I'm watching at the moment.

Is this significantly cheaper that the normal discount price for this? Does this go on sale often? If I choose to buy these in the future will it cost significantly more? Is there a risk of this going out of print?

What's your thought on Guyver?

Not bad, not great, just okay.

I've only seen 4 episodes so far. Animation is better compared to the older Guyver.

That's because Funi didn't release the Baccano Blu-ray, it was Aniplex. Which means finding it at cheap Funimation prices is unlikely.

The first set was released less than two months ago, and the second set won't be out until August. I don't think there's risk of them going out of print anytime soon, especially knowing Funimation and the popularity of this show. At $30, the first box set is 57% off retail, and I don't think it would get much lower than that on a future sale. But I wouldn't put it out of the realm of possibility. Since the second set is a preorder still, I'd wait to see future deals on it.

I've only seen the first few episodes, but what I watched didn't inspire me to keep going. It's an average, unremarkable action show with not a whole lot of character development.

That's because Funi didn't release the Baccano Blu-ray, it was Aniplex. Which means finding it at cheap Funimation prices is unlikely.


Not to mention Baccano wasn't produced in HD, making Aniplex's expensive Blu-ray release all the more pointless.

Is anyone else having their order not ship after 24 hours? Very unusual, especially since they went to process 10 minutes after ordering. Everything is listed as in-stock, so I don't get it.

I thought Darker than Black was quite good. Couple episodes in the middle stood out as terrible but it built up well afterwords and left me satisfied.

Now the second season... :oldman:

looking to pick up champloo on blu, baccano, gai-rei zero, and maybe soul eater. or maybe not anything because i really shouldn't =[

Is the picture quality on the yu yu hakusho blu ray that much better than the DVD? I'm debating wether to pick up them up on DVD or get the 1st season blu ray and wait on the other seasons.

The Yu Yu Hakusho sets looks incredible. I believe they were actually properly remastered because the difference in picture is significant!

Well, yes and no. FUNimation's domestic release is identical to the release in Japan (aside from edited title cards and credits).

However, during the "Kai-ification" process, some of the original footage was censored. For example, which Piccolo kills Raditz (and Goku by extension), what was originally a gaping hole in their chests has been edited into more of a burn-like wound.

Spoiler


There are more examples of this kind of editing, but, to be honest, I really didn't follow Kai all that closely, so all that I know is just peripheral knowledge.

But, to reiterate, the footage is identical to the Japanese release. This censoring isn't something that FUNimation did on their own.

Also, it's worth noting that due to some weird copyright infringement stuff with the soundtrack, volume five of Kai (and anything after that) will have different background music than the previous four (here's something more in-depth, if anyone actually cares).

Oh, and the series ends at the Cell arc, in case you weren't aware, and were expecting to get the complete story through Kai. :P

thx for the input. And here I thought that I would be able to watch the buu's fight again. I think I'm going to pass this one.

That's because Funi didn't release the Baccano Blu-ray, it was Aniplex. Which means finding it at cheap Funimation prices is unlikely.


And what a disappointment it was! I bought it and was hugely disappointed by the picture and especially the audio. How can the DVD set have a 5.1 audio track and the Blu-Ray set only be in stereo? :-x

just to throw my two cents in here...(since i AM the animemaniac and all :-P) But soul eater was awesome...until the end...which just sucks big time. Anti-climactic, lame, and a downright disappointment considering how hooked on the show I was up to that point

No worries. That's good and bad to hear on Soul Eater. I think I'll rent the dvds then. Guess I'm done with this sale until FMA brotherhood goes back down again.

Well, that's dumb, considering the DVDs are the superior version of Baccano, not to mention the cheaper option.

Incredibly mediocre, but with a great visual style and quality animation. It's streaming on Netflix if you'd really like to watch it.

Yu Yu Hakusho was shot on film, which is why it looks great on BD.
