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

Hellsing Ultimate follows the manga, while the original series followed the manga up to episode 5 or so before making shit up. Ultimate has fantastic animation, but the ending stumbles and falls apart since the manga ending also falls apart and makes no sense. So if you're a fan it's worth a shot, just be prepared to come out angry and confused over Alucard and many other things.

Best example to compare it to is FMA and FMA Brotherhood, so the answer is big difference.

Is fafner worth a blind buy at 29.99 for blu?


This series has some bad pacing problems...I didn't enjoy it myself, but I have heard other people who liked it. I don't recommend this as a blind-buy, unless you're really itching to spend $30 on something

Add me to the list for a blind buy of Black Lagoon. Thanks OP and others in the thread for the recommendation. Looks like a quality show. Now I just need to sit down and finish watching Planetes.

Does anyone know if funi will be releasing the black lagoon ova? I already have black lagoon season 1 and 2 on dvd, but I'm still thinking about getting it on blu.

I know they announce having the rights to the OVA. As to when we'll see it that;s up for question.

Grabbed Black Lagoon. I've seen the first 3ish episodes and enjoyed those so it seems like a good enough deal to me for the rest of it.. Thanks OP!

Oh, the power of peer pressure. Seriously tempted to pick up Black Lagoon blindly.

While BL may be featured, Steins Gate Part 2 is no slouch either. It is currently $10 cheaper than the usual price.

Why even bother picking up Steins;Gate when they'll release a complete collection later down the road that you can pick up for the price of either of the two parts right now?

They announced they're trying to get back the original voice cast for the English dub.

b/c the Steins;Gate complete collection probably won't happen for a while.

No reason to waste money now though. CAGs go for the best deal.

Well... unless you didn't watch while it was airing/haven't seen it already. In which case, you're too much of a normal for the show anyway.

Because I got Part 1 for cheap and can sell off the DVD version.

Why bother getting Black Lagoon now when they will release a collection with the OVA eventually?

What? The two aren't even close. How old do you think Black Lagoon is? How old do you think Steins;Gate is? If you really think they're going to release a collection with the 6-episode OVA series, you must have information about Funi's financials that I'm not privy to. Mind sharing?

You can justify your taste for bad deals all you want, but point is it's still a bad deal. But hey, if you get off on paying $60 for the show, then by all means have your fun. Someone's gotta front the costs so the rest of us can score shit for cheap.

No reason to get defensive about it there Dark. There is a difference in pointing out a flaw in a deal, and attacking someone's "taste". Might wanna try to be a little more social about it. Just sayin.

All he's saying is if you look at past releases, they eventually release a collection with the OVAs included. Gunslinger Girl 2, School Rumble, Burst Angel all had individual OVA releases, where they were eventually repackaged into a collection with the series.

Well whatever, not my problem. Like I said, someone needs to subsidize the cost for those of us who want deals.

I'm pretty sure we read what you said pretty well. You are the one that got butthurt over what someone else does with money. But then again your custom title fits you pretty well.

Actually, I will have gotten the series for $44, minus whatever I get for the DVD version of Part 2. And with no shitty Anime Classics cover to worry about.

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

Aliens. Lol, it's one of movies that spouts script from a fairytale in order to connect itself, rather than have a clever script to tie the two. If anything, it's like Aliens -- tries to be survival horror but ends up being an over-the-top action film. It wasn't terrible, but nothing special. Doubt I'd watch it again.

Sigh, I was really hoping the price on Black Lagoon would go up by now. Couldn't resist anymore and got it in my quick picks for about $25 shipped.

In closing, I hate you all lol.

Funimation posted on FB that's it's another sale that ends on Feb. 28th.

Here's a link with the complete list:
http://www.amazon.co...earch-alias=aps

It's mostly live action stuff. There's a few decently priced ones, but most of them seem too much(especially that Lain set).
