Does the vehicle Voltron come in a tin for Vol6-8? I have all lion Voltron Vol1-5, and they are all tins. Would rather the full set matched.

When ordering the Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya Special Editions:

Did anyone order the regular Melancholy Vol 1 bundle but receive the Vol 1 Special Edition instead?


Not sure what you mean. As far as I'm aware, vol 1 has the Limited Edition, the standard edition, and the bundle edition. I don't think there is a "special edition" outside of the limited. Bundle comes with two cds and the first DVD, Limited I think has two different cds and the big huge box set.

Did you mean order the regular edition and receive the bundle?

Sorry about the mix-up. What I meant to say was:

Did anyone order the Haruhi Vol. 1 Bundle (http://www.amazon.co...e/dp/B0013B1RN4) but receive the Vol 1. Limited Edition instead?

I did not, and I don't recall anyone saying that they had done so. Lucky Star 4 is the only one that comes to mind.

Looks like they dropped the Kurokami Vol. 1 DVD to $2.18. So now you can get 3/4 of the series for $6.54. But much like Hayate, that final volume DVD is the rare expensive disc of the show.

Nice, minus the last volume issue. But I'm still holding out for the :br:

The vehicle series sets came in cardboard boxes of similar size to the lion series tins. They were simply square boxes that the top came off of (like a shoebox would).

Just got my order from amazon monday. They put everything in a big box with no real padding and just those air tube balloon things. Toys 'R Us did the same exact thing for me once too. But at least nothing appeared to be damaged at all.

The Gurren Lagann big red box is really nice and comes with Vol 1 & 2 of the DVD's plus that drill nite light thing that still worked really well. It opens on the side where the mouth is and then flips back open. Has a small on and off switch on it. Also it may have the dub after all. I haven't watched the DVD's yet but it does say English 5.1 and Japanese 2.0 audio on the back of both DVD cases. Also claims to have 1:78:1 anamorphic widescreen too. And I think the anime legends version said 4:3. So is this fake widescreen?

My Otome Zwei Special Edition

Is up to $6.69 now.

Ghost Slayers Ayashi: Part I (w/ Book)

Is up to $6.68 as well. And I got both of these and Hellsing Ultimate bluray/dvd combo pack vol. 2.

The anime legends set are the same discs as volumes 1-6. And yes it has a dub but there is a version that came before with just subs.

My Otome Zwei wasn't bad. Anyone who knows more about the series, I'm a bit confused. Is My Otome a prequel to that? What about My Hime? I'd like to watch in order.

My Hime is an alternate setting of that world. So it's got similar things in it, but is a completely different world.

My Otome is the main TV series for the other setting. There were two OVA series. My Otome Zero was a prequel to the TV series. My Otome Zwei is a sequel to the tv series.

I literally ordered it yesterday and since I have amazon prime I got it today


Thanks to this post and a few others reporting (newer posts since the deal has been live a long while) of ordering Lucky Star Vol.4 from Amazon Warehouse and getting the LE instead, I ordered it again a few days ago. I'm now happy I too got the Limited Edition Volume 4!!! Awesome, I know Vol.6 did not get a LE in NA, and the normal Vol.6 is rare, so I'm on the lookout for that :D

Few posts up someone asked about Haruhi Vol.1 Bundle, I got the Vol.1 Bundle as ordered (not LE which is an art box, that is rare+expensive). But for ~$6 it comes with volume+some cds and completes Season 1, so it's very worth it to me collection purposes wise. Although, the extra DVDs in Vol.2-4 with original air date episodes contain the full series, right? Years ago I watched the fansub, before it was licensed, in air date order and it made sense that way. So I want to avoid watching it in chronological order like Bandai NA put them in.

Thanks to this thread, I too am on the look out for Gurren Lagann Part 3 (last 2 volumes) as I dislike incomplete series. But cheap LE's were too hard to pass up.

For those that bit on Gundam 00 a couple notes:

1. I found Season 1 part 2 SE at my local Fry's for $10.23 + tax (and returned my non SE to Amazon), so if you are looking for the SE, you might want to check your local FRY's as it's cheaper than buying it off of Amazon. According to the Fry's website, some of their other stores have the other volumes "in stores" as well, though none of my local Fry's has any of the rarer ones. Incredibly YMMV.

2. Season 2 part 4 just received a little price drop on Amazon from $44.98 down to $32.99, not sure if you guys are willing to take a chance and wait it out or buy it now, but it's still a bit of a saving compared to the usual price.

Part 4 actually dropped to about 37 first for a few days. if it hits like 25-28 I'll probably bite. Not exactly selling like hot cakes.

As for Fry's, yeah, I found my S1.2 SE there as well, but they are very poorly stocked in general on the Bandai stuff. Maybe the Cali stores have stuff, but almost nothing in Texas in Dallas/Austin areas.

i actually saw the $37 price tag but figured $7 wasn't really big enough to talk about. I'm personally waiting for it to hit $25. I have it saved on my work PC and it's the first and last thing I check when I get to / leave work.

Don't bother with the SEs for Gundam 00 They only extra stuff they include are copies of the manga. And not even one of the side story manga, but a truncated version of the main story.

That might be good advice, but the SE for part 4 is actually cheaper than the regular edition, and I also have the SE for every other part, so ...

I have Vol. 2 & 3(& Vol. 1 on the way tomorrow) on DVD from Amazon Warehouse Deals. Both discs have 6 episodes with english dub and japanese audio w/ subtitles. It even mentions it on the back of the case. So I can confirm that the DVD do have subtitles, unless Amazon's Warehouse Deals are selling a bootleg or something.

Heh... got my order of kurokami in today... ordered dvd 1-3 and blu ray 5-6 (which would net me a full series with bandai's stupid release of the series) and instead I got dvd 1-2 blu ray 3 and 5-6 which nets me a useless blu ray and a chunk of my series missing... and the price went up for dvd 3 from $2 to $7 :/

Why couldn't I get a good screw up like the lucky star people in this thread... @_@
oh well I chatted with amazon support and got a $2 credit and a return of the blu ray so it will just cost me $2 or so to fix this :/

Isn't that still kind of expensive? One part of a four part season for $15?
