Anybody looking for scrapped princess. FYE, wherehouse or suncoast has some volumes for $1.88 and some older Bandai DVD's for the same price. I got all 4 volumes of Arjuna for 6 bucks With my discount. Suncoast has all Funamation Save collections 4 half off. If anybody's interested in it. I found the girl who leapt through time on blu-ray for 20 used. Did that Blu-ray come with a slipcover?

Wow, so they clearenced them even further? I started a thread a few weeks ago where they were $3.88. Unfortunately, I have already purchased most of the S.A.V.E. sets that I am interested in.

:bomb: I am Jealous, I shelled out 70ish buck on ebay for GWLTT and there is no FYE or Suncoast with a reasonable distance from where I live

If anybody wants Gundam Wing, G Gundam, or Cowboy Bebop, there are complete sets of each at a reasonable price right now on eBay. All are the OG releases, not the Anime Legends or Remix editions.

Wing
G Gundam
Bebop

Technically Those are nearly the exact same things the Box Sets are. Dont know about Bebop if it had a non Remix release but The boxsets are just a new box with those discs in them.

Well, the AL releases take up less space, (unless you stuff them into 6-disc cases like I do) which is one reason why all the AL releases are uber expensive while the singles are only a few bucks.

Also, the OG Bebop releases have no 5.1 Surround Sound and I believe minimal extras.

Got my replacement discs today, to whoever is buying Eureka Seven individually, I have Disc 8 (or Volume 8, whatever) and Disc 10 available. Disc 8 plays fine but has a circular scratch on it (likely from when it was burned/pressed), and Disc 10 has a deep scratch which makes it skip a few minutes on one of the episodes .

To whoever wants them, I'll sell Disc 8 for $1 + Shipping and Disc 10 all you need to do is pay shipping.

Managed to grab the final disc I needed for Season 1 of Haruhi Suzumiya(Vol. 4). I was thinking of grabbing season 2, but the high price now isn't worth it when half of the episodes are the same thing.

Been trying to get Saber Marionette J to X so that I can finish the series. But I can't find all 6 discs for a reasonable price. Prices for the individual discs seems to be all over the place and the cheapest ones I can find are in questionable condition(I'd like to at least have the case with it).

Was considering getting rid of some of various Gundam discs I have to clear some space. But after seeing the prices jump in the last few weeks, I think I'll hold onto them for now. The only ones that seem to still be in a reasonable price range now is Gundam Seed/Seed Destiny. But I think that's due to the fact that it's the one they printed the most discs for(it was during anime boom in the mid-2000's).

During this whole thing, the only item I bought from Bandai recently was The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya on DVD; could've bought in on blu-ray, but I'm not a huge fan of blu-ray+dvd combos.

I'm not sure what else I can get for myself. For the large part, I can just rent a good selection of the Bandai library at my local rental shops and, well, my library. Not sure if I want to sink my wallet into Haruhi-chan; I liked the series on youtube, but I wonder if it's just a luxury made to be seen only once. Do I bother with the Zeta gundam movies if I never watched the original Zeta Gundam TV series?

No, the movies are a poor substitute for the series. A big and important subplot (one that gets reused in almost every other Gundam series) gets almost fully excised and the ending is completely changed to render ZZ and Char's Counterattack null and void.

Not saying the movies are bad, but they don't replace the series as well as the OGovies.

Those prices are making me sad. I paid half or less than half for some of those (not recently, years ago), and kicking myself for the ones I don't have yet. :(

Amazon is pulling a few titles back into stock. Gurren Lagann is currently available for under $50: http://www.amazon.co...s=gurren lagann

Pretty good deal, considering I sold my sealed copy for $100 a few weeks ago.

I was going to buy Gurren Lagann to get free shipping with GaoGaiGar, but then I went on Amazon to see how much it was there and found nothing but reviews saying that collection skips and is really bad.

Is it even worth getting?

I saw those too but I ordered it anyway, a few months ago mind you, and I had absolutely no problems with any of the discs.
