I'm thinking of getting the amagami ss bundle. Is it a good show and worth it at that price point, or might it go cheaper?


Amagami is great and that's a good price for it, and the cheapest I've seen it. It might go cheaper in the future, but not any time soon since these prices are basically as low as they'll be until the end of next year. I mean I paid more for mine, but I had no problem paying those prices for a great series.

If you don't already have them, consider picking up the three volumes of the Twelve Kingdoms. It is a very strange but very intriguing series with a lot of well-developed characters. (and by that I mean their character progression and growth, not their physical proportions) The setting in particular is fantastic. The prices for them in this sale are lower than I've ever seen them, and they are the Blu-Ray sets.


They divided it up into 3 parts? That seems odd, considering that there are 4 stories that they tell. But I concur that Twelve Kingdoms is a must-have. Probably the best fantasy anime out there. I just wish there was more of it.

I need something to fill out my order, since I'm just getting Hetalia World Series packs. So, something worth $10 or more.

Blassreiter DVD?

Anyone recommend it? Animation looks like it maybe headed for blu-ray though in the near future.

How is the anime series Ai Yori Aoshi?

Pretty much all but needless was a blind buy

Are you saying you bought Needless on purpose? I like mindless action anime (currently rewatching Law of Ueki), but Needless is painful bad.

How is the anime series Ai Yori Aoshi?

I would compare it to Ah My Goddess anime but without any supernatural elements. Main character is engaged to childhood friend but can't tell anyone, other beautiful girls chase after him, lighthearted slice-of-life romantic shenanigans ensue. I heard the manga is a lot more adult, but I enjoyed the anime.

Thanks for your unwanted opinion on the matter, I kinda liked it while I thought law of Ueki was a piece of garbage that will never turn into a tree.

I did like ah my goddess so there is hope for you yet.

Pretty much all but needless was a blind buy as I haven't seen the inuyasha movies yet. I am gonna need a bigger shelf soon.

Deepdiscount had Needless for only $29 on Cyber Monday.

It was a blind buy for myself too.

I only watched the first 2 episodes of Needless, but I had to stop after that. I think that was really quite shitty... lol

I Hated Ai Yori Aoshi. HATED it. First two episodes or so was enough for me to say this was just another shitty harem anime with one dimensional characters and a main female lead with no defining characteristics besides her stupid devotion to the whiny main character that in all reality you don't see why she has such devotion, nor did it make me care to want to find out.

It's funny you say that because the first two episodes tells you absolutely nothing about the series, but everybody is entitled to their opinions.

To be fair, if a show can't give you at *least* a small taste of what it's like after two episodes, the production crew is doing a terrible job.

Wasn't a fan of Ai Yori Aoshi either. Didn't bother watching Enishi. Aoi was just so boring. But harem anime ranks pretty low on my likes.

Needless... I wish it had better animation. It's really crappy art to feature on bluray.

Is Black Lagoon worth it at that price?

I'm trying to decide buying the FMAB Collections, Yu Yu Hakusho (1-4) or Black Lagoon Complete. Any suggestions?

I've already seen the entirety of FMAB so buying it would only be for purposes of having a physical, HD copy.

I've always been a pretty big fan of the yu yu hakusho series but I never finished it as a kid. Any reason why Black Lagoon > Yu Yu? Just looking for some guidance here!

All I got this time is Otogi Zoshi, Kurozuka, and since those are one cent short of free shipping, I threw in Mazinkaiser/Shuten Doji.

Any of those three would work. They are all great.

Also, Mazinkaiser is awesome. Shuten Doji less so.

Picked up Mahoromatic Season 2, Mahoromatic OAV, Clannad After Story Collection 1 and 2, and Guin Saga Collection 1 and 2.

Decided to forgo World God Only Knows until next year. In addition to series picked up since Black Friday (Shana S1, Heaven's Memo Pad, Papillon Rose, Clannad, Needless, Angel Beats, Lyon Flare, K-On, and Nadesico), there are the new-old series I need to watch (s-CRY-ed, Cyberteam in Akihabara, Ghost Stories), live action series (Doctor Who S1 and S6, Torchwood S1, Buffy S1-3), new movies (Amazing Spider-Man, Expendables 2), series I collected in singles to sell the CCs (Big O, Dai-Guard, Gundam Wing, G Gundam, 08th MS Team, Gundam 0083, and the first 3 Slayers), and series I own but haven't watched in years (Hello, Escaflowne-that-I-haven't-watched-in-over-a-decade!).

So yea, my backlog is real short. :P

Thats a hard choice to make, I like all three. It really depends on your tastes and what your looking for. YuYu Hakusho is my personal favorite anime of those 3 but FMAB looks so damn good on bluray. Black lagoon is pretty good as well, pretty heavy on the blood and violence, kinda like requiem for phantom.

heres some reviews done on them:

Do note that the dub makes Black Lagoon sound like an HBO show, so if you dislike strong language, stick to the sub.
