Well, Volumes 1 and 2 are about $3-6 on eBay/Amazon, but Volume 3 is going to be trouble.

I have had decent luck with that shop. Once got Last Exile (FUNi's first release) for $15 and Naruto Shippuden Set 7 for $10 there. Their DVD/anime section is rather meager (over half the anime are InuYasha singles) but they get the occasional gem. They focus more on games, imports, and TCG though

ok makes me feel better that I got the whole set for $40 considering that volume 3 is like $43 on amazon.

Sales currently going on now, so you did not miss it, but you just haven't been visiting the DVD/Blu forum as of late. ;D

Is B&T really that good? I've been meaning to check it out, but the idea always sounded a little to goofy. But I suppose I don't watch a ton of anime, so it's probably relatively normal (that sentence didn't come out right)
Let me tell you two useful pieces of information...

Eh, I'll wait until the eventual Anime Classics complete set. I have enough DVD-size box sets from FUNimation's fanservice comedies that will be half-empty (after Sacred Blacksmith, Heaven's Lost Property, and Sekirei).

So, my buddy found this on the subway in NYC. He sent it to me in this cryptic black envelope with no return address which almost got tossed in the trash cause it sorta creeped me out. Anyway, glad I opened it.

Anyone else remember these? I recall thinking to myself that there's NO WAY IN HELL that I'd ever purchase so many new Capcom games in a year to get that "big" $10 rebate. I almost wanna send it in with some UPCs :P


Also, my big $10 purchase yesterday.

Me too. Well I bought S1 since I had never seen it but I just watched an episode on Funimation's YouTube Channel and I like it.

Could always check out Funimation's YouTube Channel. That is what I did. Hopefully this sale goes on a for a bit because if I like S1 enough, I will probably end up buying S2. :D

GS Pickups; paid about $10 out of pocket after trade-in. All are complete except Lost Odyssey, missing the manual. Castlevania is even sealed despite being sold as pre-owned.

Even though I've mostly switched to PC gaming, I'd still like to fill some holes in my current-gen console-exclusive collection. At this point it would be pretty difficult to pinpoint any (good, retail) PS3-exclusive games I don't have so now it's on to the 360 and Wii.

These are all from the thrift store, but don't get excited - they're all empty cases! Why they had a box of empty PS1 cases is a mystery to me, but I picked the best ones; they were 5 for $1. All have manuals except Legend of Dragoon and Rayman.

Also, Nancy Drew for Wii, complete. It's an uncommon-ish game so I grabbed it. *shrug*

This is a resealed game I got from HPB for $7. I haven't opened it yet. I hope it has everything. Anyone know a good source to tell if a Gameboy game is factory sealed? All my quick searches are not bringing up much.

These past few days I have been picking up cheap guides because everywhere that sells them are slowly charging more and more like ebay.

If it's anything like the thrift stores around here, it's because someone stole the CDs and left the cases.

Some of the Good Will stores around here actually use packing tape to tape the jewel cases shut, that is, if they don't put them in a glass case stacked in such a way that you can't actually read what games are there without getting an employee :wall:.

Man I know it. At least 50% of the time I find a decent game the case ends up being empty. But this was literally a box of empty cases they were selling for $.20 each. For once I think they actually got them in this way.

Nothing much to report.
Just picked up MAG at Gamestop for .99. Will probably go back later and pick up a few for the cases. :lol:
Also, I was going to buy Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus for the PS2. But the Employee couldn't find it. Luckily, he said a copy was coming in and said to come back 4-5 days. He let me keep the case. Haha.

I don't know what this Yamcha soda is, but it sounds disappointing.

I'd rather drink Bulma-flavored anyway. Though it should be strawberry-flavored.
