Was just browsing Amazon and found that both Steins Gate Part 2 and Level E are $30.99, which is over half off. Black Lagoon is $26.49. Not sure what other titles are on sale.

So is King of Thorn and I'm intrigued since it's supposed to be a sci-fi take on Sleeping Beauty. Can anyone chime in on this anime because I'm this close to a blind buy.

Screw it, manipulated my quick picks and got it for almost another dollar off. Hope it's as good as the reviews say!

I wonder if it's a match of Righstuf, who's doing a Funimation sale.

Lost Girl Season 1 is $25 and Season 2 is $31 also. The first 3 seasons of DBZ Kai are $28 (Blu-ray only, the DVD versions aren't discounted further for some reason).

After you watch it, would you mind sharing your perspective? I am intrigued as well but wonder what it would compare to.

Not picking up Black Lagoon at that price would be a travesty.

Watching watched 800 series (half of them to completion), I can easily say that Black Lagoon is one of the best.

Edit: It's a hyperviolent show about mercenaries and their jobs. It's arc-based and well paced. At worst it's entertaining. At best, it's really entertaining.

I've seen the first season and can't honestly remember anything about it lol. I think it must've been one of those turn your brain off series and just enjoy.

Season 2 is much better and the main part people remember when they think of the show. Those creepy twins...

Anyway, at this price I could probably sell off my old Black Lagoon DVDs and get the Blu-ray at a profit lol

Can anyone compare the quality of the Black Lagoon blu-rays vs the dvds, I have the 2 geneon steelbooks and hate having the same show on dvd and blu-ray.

It is definitely a noticeable upgrade, not to mention you'll be getting DVDs in this set also, so value wise you really can't go wrong. :o

Well I can't say as how this release holds up as I have the Geneon dvds. But as far as storyline content, yes definitely. :)

I owned Geneon Season 1 is kick ass. Season 2 is too expensive and it go OOP. Now it's time to pick up both season on blu-ray for low price ;)

It depends on your taste, really. I actually did not enjoy the series. Before buying the series, I highly suggest watching a few episodes for free (legally) on Hulu HERE

If you have a smartphone, the FUNimation app has a few episodes as well.

May be a dumb question but how different is Hellsing Ultimate compared to the original series?
