A lot of this stuff is still around or were just restocked. Haruhi volumes 1-4 LEs are up but I'm having a hard time pulling the trigger, $26 for LE Haruhis...

The extras are well worth it if you're a Haruhi fan. Vol 2 LE comes with a Haruhi armband (nice quality btw). Vol 3 and 4 LE each come with a pillowcase with the three main girls on them (one sided, for normal sized pillows, not the big hugging pillows). Each LE also includes a cd.

Note that Amazon doesn't have Vol 1 LE, it's simply the regular edition bundled with some cd's. So you don't get the Vol 1 LE art box or Haruhi yellow hair ribbon.

1. Bandai NA is done, no more reprints or anything new, shut down. Did Haruhi get picked up by someone else?

2. These are freaking LE's!

3. I've been wanting Haruhi for awhile, and I've never seen Season 1 dip below $30 (normal non-LE version, even), haven't watched Season 2 as closely, but this is just S1. Combine LE (well V1 is just CD bonuses) + out of print, $26 for S1 sounds like a steal to me! \\:D/

Heads up, Eureka Seven Vol 9 SE (www.amazon.com/Eureka-Seven-Volume-Special-Edition/dp/B000SK5YXA/) does not include OST2 like Amazon description says. I received it today and the SE box does not mention the soundtrack, so it must be an Amazon error. I contacted CS and they gave me a refund (without having to send it back, probably not worth the hassle to them for such a cheap item).

I also ordered an additional Vol 3 SE since in my first one, a sticker between the outer and inner boxes had dislodged and the glue residue made it impossible to remove the contents without damaging the boxes. I was going to return it, but for $2 I just bought another one to keep sealed and will enjoy the shirt from the first.

Yeah, Soundtrack part 2 is in volume 7. Maybe a copy/paste error? I

Don't I know it...I usually luck out at this mom and pop movie trade place but no luck. Sad really considering that is only volume I lack, and I have been looking forever. I did recently snag the rare FLAG vol.2 from that place last week, and purchased FLAG Vol.1 w/box from amazon whouse to complete my collection. Have yet to watch but I have maybe 10 bucks in the whole series.

Just got my stuff today. Hopefully everyone else that's ordered recently gets better packaging on their orders.

As I have to send back one of the Kurokami discs back due to poor packaging. Because they decided to stack the 2 Kurokami discs & My Otome Zwei LE and cram them into one small box. Which led to the Kurokami DVD on the bottom to have the back part of case & disc holder damaged and caused the disc to be knocked loose & have a ton of scratches.

Also it looks like the Kurokami discs might've been resealed. As they don't have the plastic wrapping that the My Otome Zwei disc does or the Hayate discs that I've ordered.

Ouch! My order came in a HUGE box. I opened it up and it all the LE's were packed like a pallet, with cardboard bottom and plastic wrapped. One Lucky Star was semi-bent, but not very noticable.

Whaaaaaaat! So we've got 3 success, in this thread, on getting LE and 3 or so getting normal? I'm so tempted to order another, just to try. I know I'll never get Vol 6 LE, but a full 1-5 would look better on the shelf :D

Yeah and also found out after talking to a CS rep. about it while filing for the return that they consider Amazon Warehouse Deals to be a 3rd party seller(even though it's got Amazon in the name).

Meaning that if you get something damaged or defective, you can't exchange it. If you want a replacement, hope it's still in stock at the same price & pay again to order the other copy while returning the defective one for a refund.

Lucky Star changed how I watch anime (opened me up to different genres than I ever would've considered watching. It was also the first series I ever watched subbed, and is only one of two series I would rather watch the subb over the dub).

Haruhi I haven't seen, but I only hear good things about season 1. Season 2 is supposedly a train wreck.

Season 2 was mainly a train wreck due to the Endless Eight episodes. The others were just fine and the movie made up for it.

As for which is better, that is YMMV, but it is probably easier to complete Haruhi than Lucky Star. Volume 6 and the Anime Legends set are super expensive and rare. Season 2 and Disappearence are rare and not cheap, but still less so than Lucky Star Volume 6.

Just needed somethings cleared up. And yes I've read through the whole thread. Just wanted to be sure here.

http://www.amazon.co...ef=pd_sim_mov_1

So this link and part 3 are subtitled only? And the only way to get the dubbed version is to get the crazy expensive limited edition part 2 & 3 plus the cheap part 1 LE? That or the anime legends version? Just confused a bit here and needed to see if you guys can help me clear this up.

And is this series truly widescreen?

I have Vol. 1 of the sub-only and it's widescreen too. So no matter which version is purchased, it'll be in widescreen.

I had to go the subbed only route with Gurren Lagann since I was able to get part 2 and 3 cheap, but its killing me on the inside. :'(

The dub of Gurren Lagann is just so amazing IMO!

Gurren is available on Rightstuf right now for $37.49 for the complete collection, dub and sub. It's not the same price here and you don't get the extras, but it's certainly worth grabbing if you don't have it yet.
