Can anyone explain why the heck this keeps jumping up in price? http://www.amazon.co...ionette j again

It's doubled in price in the span of a week. Did it get a low print run or something compared to the rest of the series?


It's out of print along with all of Bandai's other titles, and no one sure which ones will get licensed by another company.

Plus, the Marionette series was only mildly successful, and unlike other Bandai series (Bebop, Gundam, Lucky Star, Haruhi, etc.) there is no guarentee that it will be relicensed.

Anyone know any good places to look for Gundam 00 season 2 part 4? I managed to pick up the pretty much the whole series from amazon warehouse deals for $35, but I'm missing that last part.

Your best bet is to scour used DVD shops like FYE or MovieStop

Part 4 is the hardest to find because it was produced the least amount of times sadly:

http://www.amazon.co...season 2 part 4

http://www.amazon.co...season 2 part 4

http://www.ebay.com/...=item3f0491ecb4

or just buy all 4 parts and sell the extra ones you already have:

Or just get the anime legends set: http://www.rightstuf...tem/93974/4/0/0

I managed to find part 4. My nearest BB had a copy for $14. It was more than I wanted to pay, but the only other store near by with it was suncoast. They wanted $34. I paid around that for the rest of the series from amazon's warehouse deals.

Was part 5 of Zeta also a really low run? Can't find it reasonably priced anywhere.

I've never been that much of a gundam fan but I got almost everything I wanted from Bandai except Outlaw Star... I got a good feeling that funimation will pick it up though and cowboy bebop too. Im hoping both get the bluray treatment they deserve. I have cowboy bebop but can't justify purchasing outlaw star at the prices im seeing.

Well this sucks! I finally got around to watching Gundam 00 Season 2 again, I originally saw it "online", and I got to the VERY last disc, the VERY last episode, and the Very last 5 minutes won't play. :( When I looked at the disc it had round bubbly looking things you couldn't feel them though. I feel like the entire set is a piece of poopy now if I can't watch the last 5 minutes.

Does anyone know of any locations to find the second half of Eureka Seven? I didn't pull the trigger when I had the chance and now it seems like this series will be very expensive to watch.

I was looking a couple weeks ago after I found season 1 used for $20 and couldn't find anything under $60 or $70. Your best bet is a used copy on ebay.

I scored Planetes yesterday at a local used store for $25. I also saw Haunted Junction (around $15) and Brain Powered ($35 I think). Are either of them worth picking up at those prices?

Anyone looking for the last two dvds of IGPX besides me? I can't seem to find vol. 6 and 7 anywhere at a reasonable price. Also Ronin Warriors the complete collection. I managed to find it used and I bought it but I would like a pristine copy. My disc are all fine not a scratch on them but the case lacks a bit to be desired... :/

Ronin Warriors went out of print years ago. Only thing you can do is just to buy a replacement case for it.

Sure thing i've actually got a lot of local anime shops here that i've scored at lately. Im really hoping one new one turns up and I might have a lead at a local japanese import business.

Good news is Japanese Gurren Lagann Complete Blu Ray Box will include English sub. Bad news is that it cost over $700.

Also likely means FUNimation (or Sentai, which would be pretty funny if you think about it) will likely not be able to release a Blu-ray set whenever they acquire the license.

I'm pretty sure Aniplex of America will be the ones to get the rights for Gurren Lagann.

Depends on how much FUNi is willing to pay. Not everything Aniplex Japan does is released by AniUSA, especially since they don't have the distribution channels FUNi does. They will likely keep the Blu-ray rights to prevent reverse importation though.

Still digging for IGPX vol.6. I MAY have managed to get a copy online ordered from 2 different sources both are known to send "Sorry this product isn't in stock anymore" emails a decent bit so im not hopeful. But i've managed some luck with them in the past. Both are local import/anime/japan culture shops. If anyone sees a copy of this in the wild if you could pm me and maybe work out a deal I would greatly appreciate it ;).

Would you mind posting the sources? I'm scouring for a few titles I missed out on for cheap or no worse than msrp, so I'd like to give them a browse.

As for yours, I haven't seen it at any places I frequent, sorry.

Well one you won't be able to order from unless you do it IN store unfortunately... and that is Animax on Summer Ave. in Memphis, TN.

The other sources i've had varying degrees of luck with is digitaldogpound.com, secondspin.com(which is something i see surprisingly few ppl mention), and animepavilion.com. <both a local and online store although its quite a drive for me as a b&m store not technically local but a buddy of mine lives near there and checks it out for me if something shows stock online.

Thanks, a few potentials to try out. Is Anime Pavilion any good online? Seems like it hasn't been updated lately, and they have a warning about manga listed online being out of stock, so I worry about OOP DVD titles as well.

Hit or miss i've had many cancellations and just as many successes...tbh. After many emails the manager responded to me saying if its in stock it will ship if not it will be cancelled :( not exactly helpful but he did say they had stock of alot of titles from bandai still in the singles and a few box sets but he never said of what. Best bet would probably be to call.

Also I've got another local store called spin street its an affiliate of fye and typically carries the anime for my local fye at our mall. Which is another source you can try is fye.com alot of people tend to ignore this site also.
