How long can items stay in your cart before going to checkout?

I might get Burn-Up since its a old school classic.


When you add them to cart just mark them as save for later, otherwise the items in cart usually gets cleared out every 24 hours or so.

I have so many things saved in my cart at the moment, so I really hope these last two days won't be putting a hurt on my wallet too much further.

Hopefully tomorrow Chrome Shelled Regios shows up. I only managed to save ~$50ish for one last order tomorrow so hopefully the Dark Lord doesn't pull out too many cards on the last day.

Baccano is supposed to be really damn good, right?


It's okay, but the pacing is off and lots of scenes don't fit well (I'm not talking about the anachronological storyline, which I thought was cool).

When people talk about how good it is, they're only thinking of the scenes aboard The Flying Pussyfoot. But since, oh, 40% of the story takes place in New York, you have to deal with the many lows that accompany that setting (the NY information brokers are terribly boring).

There are some standout characters in the cast, but while you could tell there were some cool things going on with them, everything felt rushed, like it was directed by someone who was in over his head.

All in all, it's an 8/10, so it's still good. And it's definitely what I'd class as something that I could recommend to someone new to anime (because it's set in the USA). But don't be fooled by people telling you it's the greatest thing ever because it's not.

Hero Tales is pretty good I enjoyed it. I'll probably pick that up. Also on Baccano is pretty freakin good, there are some interesting plot twists in it that will make you what the heck. But it is good.

It's already gone cheap like a couple years back and has long since been discontinued and oop, and it's a product of Aniplex, so you probably won't get that chance.

Actually all this talk about it does seem to be jogging my memory a bit. I think I may have just forgotten because the price for the new set wasn't anything of interest again so I may have just passed again because of that and blocked it out of memory. But yeah, it's all coming back to me now, lol.

Anywho, back to watching Can You Hear My Heart.

In other news, I just finished up Gundam 00 and that was a really interesting series. Where they went with the plot, especially in the movie, was completely new for Gundam. I also appreciated all the nods to the UC universe. Aside from the oft-awkward and overly melodramatic/preachy dub, that was a damn good series!

Again, all the stuff I am interested in are stuff I either own or already watched. Though anyone looking for good stuff I definitely recommend Kaliedo Star and You're Under Arrest. Both awesome series.

That picture listing recommended anime was interesting. I was thrilled to see Big O on there (my second favorite anime series) along with Paranoia Agent and Perfect Blue, but disagreed on a few like Samurai Champloo (though the baseball ep is great) and Nausicaa among others (if I list some of "the others" I'd probably start a flame war).

I heard of Baccano by name and decided to check the show description. Sounds promising. I'm thinking of buying that or Mushi-shi of which I saw a few episodes of and enjoyed very much.

I'm going to hold off on DBZ Kai until they release the [rumored] Buu saga. I'm still holding a grudge towards them for stopping the "Ultimate Uncut" DVD's and don't want to be the victim of owning another incomplete collection.

I would super extremely highly recommend Death Note immediately then.


I loved the first Appleseed and the music is awesome, have the album. Appleseed Ex Machina :br: gets really cheap often, so that's an easy pick with no regret. I have the :dvd:Steelcase LE of Appleseed, never could find a good price on the :br:. I'd recommend both. DVD of Appleseed is so cheap used. Camel shows :br: of Ex Machina down to $9.99, that's when I got it but it's only $11.49 right now, beating Rightstuf.

More recommendations that I did not see on that list, but I enjoyed and thought I'd share maybe someone else does too: Zone of the Enders and Star Ocean EX. ZoE is only the same universe as the video game, it's a prequel and there is no need to have played the game. Star Ocean on the other hand, is basically the first 2 (of 4) discs of the PS1 game. Problem is they never brought it back for a 2nd season so I'm sad :( I've heard they did 5 JP voice CDs with same VA's to finish it, but I need subtitles, heh.

Edit: Barrels.



Thanks for the recommendations ;) I've heard about Death Note, I'll check that one out. As I had considered picking up one or both Appleseed movies a number of times, I'll grab them when prices drop again. Not sure I'd be interested in Star Ocean since it sounds like there's no resolution, but I'll look into that and Zone of the Enders.

Any thoughts on 5 Centimeters Per Second?

I tend to disagree, probably because of the jumping around the timeline you aren't always seeing the "boring" part (Which is all background stuff setting up what happens of the Flying Pussyfoot.) Maybe it ends up being a gimmick, but it works.

Nice to see the Blu-Ray at a reasonable price. Back when I was originally watching it, the Blu-Ray was just too pricy.

I was disappointed to see the Baccano DVD this morning and not the blu ray. I missed out on the special edition blu ray set last year, and the fact that there's only a $5 difference between the two has caused me to stay away from the new set. Aniplex and I have had a real bad time here over the last couple of years.

As a side note, god bless secondary sellers on Amazon:

Baccano! Blu-ray Disc Box Limited Edition - $71.02 new
New copy of the bluray for the series that got one of the best dubs ever. This is a sightly different edition then the one posted. it has the same blurays, however they are all now in one bluray case which has a slipcover. the cover art is the same as well as almost all packaging.

I loved it. It's gorgeous and Shinkai's best work, IMO. It is a romance story though. It does away with the Sci-Fi elements that were prevalent in his previous films. I can't speak to the quality of the Bandai/Crunchyroll dub either, the one I own is the original ADV release and the dub there is fantastic. I know they recorded a new dub but I can't remember if they included the ADV dub on the release as well.

The only reason the Buu Saga wasn't done originally was because ratings in Japan sucked. Since Kai is killing outside Japan, they decided to make more money and make more Kai.

No it wasn't. When Kai started, they said it was going to end after the Cell saga. Buu was excluded cause it was never part of the manga.
