thanks to OP and everyone here for the help. This is what I ordered:

The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, Volume 2 (Limited Edition)
The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, Volume 3 (Limited Edition)
The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, Volume 4 (Limited Edition)
Gurren Lagann: Part 1 (Limited Edition DVD + Artbox + LED Light)
My Otome Zwei Special Edition
Ghost slayer LE

I didnt get code because I been buying so much stuff. Hopefully one day i can get cheap dragonball z and GT series to replace my old VHS tapes I got that is japanese voice and english subtitle. Im so confused on the different ones, but want it like it was on VHS, but improved on hdtv. Does anyone remember Guyver around the early 90's on I think Scifi channel? Can anyone link me so i can make sure i get the right one? I saw a 2005 series, but not sure if that's the one.

Yeah, but the series was released in three sub-only sets before it was dubbed (and subsequently rereleased). That may be what they're talking about.


Ah, you're right. I completely forgot about that.

Only the first 34 episodes were released on Blu-ray. There are the Orange Boxes out there for pretty cheap, but they are formatted to widescreen format and are kinda bright. There's also the Dragon Box which is completely unedited, but very hard to find.

I skipped out on the Code Geass Volumes. I hate that 5 and 6 are incredulously expensive and I'd much rather have the entire set.

Although... I have a feeling that the prices on those might skyrocket since Bandai died.

But I did pick up a copy of Gurren Laggan Part 1 LE. The box was just too nice to not buy.

The Season 1 set is currently $35 on Amazon Marketplace. Not too bad. Also, check your local Best Buy. The bigger ones usually have a lot of Bandai sets left. Mine had FOUR copies of Gundam 00 Season 2.

WHAT!?! Are you Fucking kidding me?? I checked two Best Buys and one about an hour away by my aunts house for Gundam 00 Season 2 and no Bandai whatsoever...

Were you able to get Melancholy of Haruhi Volume 1 Limited Edition or did you have to settle for the regular Vol 1 bundle? I saw that the Limited Editions are available for 2-4 but I'm wondering if anyone got Vol 1 before they sold out?


Took me to today to realize that's not the LE Vol 1 bundle, because I remember when the LE bundles first came out. I was just really excited to see them for that cheap. I forgot that the LEs had an extra DVD that contained the original brodcast order. That was the big draw.

Yes I was trying to find the complete second season, which I later had to buy on Amazon for around ~$44 a little while ago.

Bah, I missed that too. Cancelled that item since I already have the regular S1 set and don't care for the character CD's in this bundle. If this were the LE I'd be all over it. I think the LE is a big box that can house the other LE DVD's. Still getting LE 2-4 since their extras are cool (two pillow cases and Haruhi's brigade leader armband).

You're still missing Season 2, part 4.

That one goes for $40+ everywhere. I did see that the complete season 2 is $37.49 at Rightstuf.

Yep. The BB had Gundam 00 Season 2, Bebop Remix, K-On Season 1, Code Geass Season 1, and IGPX Vol. 1 LE sets. They probably have more in the back because I thought I bought the last Gundam 00 S2 a few weeks ago. Then again, half their anime shelf is taken up by Bleach and Naruto...

This is awesome, thanks OP! Been looking for Haruhi for a long while now, and these are freaking LE for same/lower price!! :D

lol. You won't be finding Bandai anime for cheap anymore.


Check again, most of the stuff mentioned in this thread is Bandai. Yes I'm aware some volumes missing, but still ones listed are beyond cheap, for LE's. Which brings me to my question:

Why/Where did this come from? I just added one of the Bandai titles to cart, changed quantity to 999, and it worked. How did Amazon Warehouse deals (Noram? That's where they ask me to send returns) get a hold of these? I already have 2+3 Haruhi Limited shipped out, others in shipping soon.

Edit: Oh yeah, and these are NEW, Amazon Warehouse Deals has always been USED, as far as I know. Which is why I'm wondering how this happened :)

They couldn't make a profit like that. Licensing fees are why all the recent anime releases are $50+ MSRP.

And while many of the singles are indeed cheap, the boxsets are NOT. And some od the singles are expensive as well. Scrapped Princess vol. 5, Lucky Star Vol. 6, Gundam 00 Season 2 Part 4, and the middle volumes of G Gundam are major expensive right now.

I've seen them do this every once in a while, so it does happen from time to time.

Who knows, maybe they found a bunch of these things hidden in a corner somewhere and decided to list them for super cheap.

The articles I read seem to conjure up these images of Capcom executives sitting in a dark room with a cauldron and cackling about how no one will be able to buy this game used.


Do you really think I could start a fast food restaurant called McDonaldz and use the golden arches as my logo and get away with it?

Guys, so there are 2 Gundam 00, Season 2, part 2 listed.

Neither of them says they include the manga or is listed specifically as the SE.

However, this one, UPC: 669198804229
Both costs more by $1 (than a non-Warehouse deal), and comes up on other sites as the SE. Take my chances and see what comes?
The other listing: 669198804328

I figures Amazon Warehouse must go by UPC only, so I'll probably get what I'm looking for, just curious. Unfortunately none of the used/new marketplace sellers mention the manga.

Thanks, I ordered all of Season 1. Now I have to decide whether to drop $37.49 on Season 2 at Rightstuf or try to find it at my local BBY. Does anyone who found S2 at BBY happen to know/have the SKU for it (located on its price tag)? With that, I can search for it even though it's vanished from BBY.com.

Trust me, the manga isn't worth it. Just retells the anime except at a MUCH quicker pace.

Probably liquidated by bandai. It is also possible that some of these are form a 'problem run' of DVDs. I noticed in some of the reviews people had trouble playing the discs on certain players.
