Man...there's still so many things I want to get, but I'm on the borderline of pulling the trigger. Already dropped a few hundred on the sales thus far at Rightstuf, and if I convince myself somehow to pull the trigger on what I have in the cart right now, that's going to be another couple hundred off to the races. This is not looking good for my chances of making it out of the year under $8k spent on anime in total. ~_~

I find it funny that the same four Clannad sets for which I paid $5.99 last year are $4 more expensive this year. Even so, if you don't own the entire series yet (Clannad and After Story), you have no excuse now. Also, if you don't own it, BUY REDLINE. If you're a fan of frenetic action and open to the idea of an F-Zero-esque anime movie, you will absolutely, definitely not be disappointed.

Now, question time: Anyone have thoughts on Golgo 13's quality and whether the $64.99 bundle is a good value?

I don't recall if it was you or another individual here asking about sexual content with Korean dramas, but here goes: Golgo 13 has quite a bit of nudity and sex. It can be pretty slow, but it's usually pretty interesting.

Clannad on sale? Yes!
Clannad half-sets cheaper than the collections? YES!

But S1P1 is sold out. :(

Amazing deal on the Clannad Blu-rays. I paid $53 for After Story, figuring it would never drop in price anytime soon. I feel a tinge of buyer's remorse but stop and remind myself that I was at one point willing to pay $400 for the Japanese set.

If I hadn't purchased the Clannad DVD sets during this sale last year I would purchase the blu rays without hesitation. Unless you don't have a blu ray player, I wouldn't worry about the extra $12/set for the series. Alternatively, keep an eye out for restocks over the next couple of days, because if I remember correctly, the same thing happened last year (one set sold out early) and they got a few more of them in later on.

$20 for all of Rozen Maiden and the Ouverture DVD (it's included in the complete collection, just to make sure nobody buys both) is a pretty good deal. I laugh when I think about how my Rozen Maiden collection is spread out across three different companies. I have the first four DVDs from Geneon, the last two DVDs from Funimation, and Ouverture from Sentai Filmworks :D

Nothing for me to add today except for maybe Redline. I needed a day like today, but am a little bit disappointed that it came on a Friday.

Pix on what, most of it hasn't even arrived yet, lol.

But if you're referring to all my pick ups you should just browse through all the pick ups threads this year and there they will all be. ;D

And if you're referring to all my anime the collection thread will do.

One title I'm contemplating on is Lost Universe. If I'm a Slayers fan, would I enjoy that too? I've always thought of it as a "Slayers in Space" sort of show, but haven't checked it out yet.

#228 Squarehard

It's pretty much just that, so if you liked Slayers you'll like Lost Universe, but of course it can go both ways since it's strikingly similar, so a small chance you mind find it dull, but all depends on you.

Lost Universe is garbage, even by the low standards set by Slayers. Bleh.

Side note: I actually enjoy most of Slayers, despite recognizing that it just isn't very good.

So in regards to the "buy early & often...some may sell out" disclaimer on the sale page, how often does this happen?

Reason I ask is because I usually buy everything together when the sale is about to end & have never had to worry about sale ending on the items I want but I remember one sale where some of the Viz titles ended up going back to regular price days before it ended.

Honestly i just care for No. 6 so I guess what are the chances that one will sale out or change in pricing? : S

Usually if there is a Quantity counter on the page that means it's probably time to jump on the deal.

Otherwise you're pretty much safe.

Lost Universe is OK, but watch it subbed. The dub is probably one of the worst ADV has ever done.

Close, Blue Seed 9 is probably their worst dub, Lost universe is actually half watchable by comparison.

I bought that huge box set last time I saw it on sale and used it pretty much as background noise for a month until it finally started to grow on me.

It is OK, but it suffers from the main trio (the two on the front cover and the guy's little brother) doing literally everything with nobody else helping them fighting (Imagine Naruto Shippuden if no other ninjas other than Team 7 did anything or Bleach where the Soul Society didn't fight) and ends with the larger plot threads unresolved.
