I ended up getting Champloo, and the Highschool of the dead bluray and hardback manga compilation.

Highschool of the Dead is one of those guilty pleasures thats just so much fun to watch. Can't wait for the 2nd season.

I'm torn on Soul Eater for all the reasons previously mentioned. The end was so lame it almost ruined the enitre show. I will wait til next xmas where we'll likely see a single box with all of it contained within (or a similar cheapo price).

I thought Tears to Tiara was average. My memory is a bit hazy, but if I recall, Utawarerumono was a better show.

Woah I didn't even notice Seto no Hanayome was up there. I can never recognize it by it's translated name. Totally picking that up. It's too bad the OVAs don't appear to be included (at least according to the description).

HoTD was excellent (for what it is) and I picked up. I totally forgot that there should be a 2nd season. Should've waited, meh! Those Sentai guys never bring their prices down though which is frustrating. Ah well.

Edit: Bwahaha that video is too funny! It's that kind of self-deprecating humor the show has that I loved. They know they have to have the over-sized boob women in a zombie show and they mess with it all the time. Love it.

Yeah, I liked Utawarerumono better too, but Tears to Tiara was still pretty good.

How do the impossible matrix boobs count as self-deprecating humor? That scene isn't even supposed to be funny. All the breasts and panties in that show are about being provocative. I would understand if you thought it was funny because it's so dumb, but I just end up heaving a large sigh whenever I see it.

Agreed but this scene might be more of what he was talking about:

I dont know about being provactive with that clip. They have a mix of provactive with ridiculous. I just assumed the ridiculous was there to poke fun of the stereotypes. So yeah, I'm laughing because it's dumb/ridiculous. I sigh when they do it as if it's supposed to be provactive and it's epic fail.

Chance Pop Session Complete Collection's cover makes it look like a porno. WTF? It's basically an idol show for young girls! Seen it myself, it's cute, but there's NO fanservice or sexuality like that ridiculous cover implies.

High School of the Dead... wow. I watched the first episode on Hulu, what a piece of crap. The amount of fanservice was insulting.

Anyone seen Taisho Baseball Girls? My husband bought the PSP game on our honeymoon, but he hasn't seen the animu.

I'm not going to pretend that I don't enjoy the occasional fanservice anime, but HotD wasn't one of them. It wasn't so much the high number of service scenes that repulsed me so much as it was the fact that everyone except the pink-haired girl had giant inhuman hideous cow tits. Come on, Japan, at least have some aesthetic sensibilities sometimes. I wanted to puke whenever the school nurse was on screen.

The series is still worth owning for the action, but I wouldn't pay above $20 for the blu-ray.

The Meister/Weapon Collections are the only release of Soul Eater on blu-ray. It's likely that they are called 1&2, 3&4 for the reason you mentioned.


Thanks. Well then, I suppose that regardless of the number of episodes per volume, if the Soul Eater and Casshern blu volumes originally had roughly the same MSRP, a reasonably-priced repackage containing the entire series isn't entirely out of the question in the future. I'll wait on Soul Eater and just kick myself if I never see it cheaper, I guess.

does anyone know if the Rin: Daughters of Mnemosyne dubbing was any good? I thought the show was pretty good but I was also considering casshern sins by the recomendations. It's also the cheapest I've seen it and I cant even find it on amazon so I am wondering if its even still in print.

I didn't mind the dub, but I felt like the show just went for "shock value", if you will, over actually being good.

Despite the last few episodes, I still really liked Soul Eater in the end. Not one of my top 10 favorites, but still loved it.

I keep considering Highschool of the Dead, but I really don't see myself liking it much. A girl I use to go out with loved it though.

I agree on all accounts.

That Chance Pop Session alternate cover is the most deceiving cover I know of, along with this Princess Tutu one. And I love both of those shows.

And I only gave High School of the Dead a shot because it has zombies, but it was just so blatantly crass.

I didn't have a problem with any of the characters' breast sizes, except for Shizuka. She was the worst; her cow udders were disgusting, and her stupidity was so very annoying.

Well, that's unfortunate news. I found Utawarerumono near-unwatchable, it was so bad.


I can't remember, but what didn't you like about Utawarerumono? Maybe I can assuage your fears of Tears to Tiara ending up the same way.

I thought the English dub was great; the two main leads, Colleen Clinkenbeard and Jamie Marchi, did a really good job as Rin and Mimi.

I watched the first two episodes on Netflix last night. So far, not to bad, tho the Irish accents are...interesting. (At least, I think it is supposed to be Irish...) At least it is somewhat different. I've been watching too many dubs lately and I've been recognising way too many voice actors...

Yeah I really enjoyed Rin and I watched the English dub. It was an interesting storyline and they definitely went above and beyond with the shock value, that's for sure. You will absolutely remember this show when you are done watching it lol.

I've seen it and think it's worth it for $20, especially if you enjoy getting a peek at what life was like back in that time period. Also, it's a great underdog story.

If anyone's looking for a good slice-of-life/drama, I recommend Living for the Day After Tomorrow from today's additions. It's pretty good; the only slight I have against it is that the ending was a little rushed, but other than that I really enjoyed it.

Pretty much everything. The story itself was boring, the characters were unbearably obnoxious, it played out like a bad harem PC game (which I understand it started as) with each new female cast member finding a new retarded reason to fall for the bland male lead, and the ending was a glorious train wreck of awful ideas.

I wish I'd known that Tenchi in Tokyo was going to be part of this sale earlier; I bought two individual volumes (5 and 6) as cart filler for the first sale order I placed. :roll: I was originally going to get the rest of them from Netflix, but they sent me vol 1 and it had a hole in the disc (in addition to the normal number of holes you'd expect a disc to have).

Rather than fight with them anymore, I just ordered the complete collection of the series this morning. Despite your warnings, I filled my cart with both volumes of Special A. I liked School Rumble, so I'll probably hate SA. :)

Is there a huge difference between the High School of the Dead Bluray version against the DVD version? I have never seen a huge difference IMO in terms of details (video) in anime or animated shows on Bluray vs DVD (and don't care for audio to much to base it on that alone).

I want to get HSotD, but wanted someones opinion if there is a remarkable difference on Bluray that justifies the extra $4. $4 is not much, but what I hate most if how SLOW Bluray discs are to load versus regular DVDs.

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

High School of the Dead should still be up on Hulu as far as I know, if anyone is on the fence about it. It's subbed too.

For HoTD, I've never seen the DVDs, but the Blu-ray quality is great. I'd go for the Blu's.

Yay Day 11 has Kobato! An average, but enjoyable show. I guess I'll pick up Seto, just noticed a new bundle pack will be available in January for $37. Only $7 higher than this "sale". I can easily imagine it dropped to $25 or so. I'll chalk up the difference in value to being able to watch it (again) before it goes on sale. Stupid Rightstuf is taking all my money.

That's weird because I never noticed a difference in blu-ray being slower. Seems to be faster to me to boot-up and less annoying, but I play them all on my PS3.

Blurays can take a while to load with a cheap crappy Bluray player. Shouldn't be problem with a ps3 or any other quality player.
