To those that have ordered from the Funimation shop. How is there packaging like? For a single blu-ray item, do they stuff it in a bubble envelope? Or use those cardboard fold outs like Rightstuf?

 

Also do they ship their product early like Rightstuf does?

I've only ordered from them once, and I can't remember what they sent my items in packaging wise. All I know is my anime arrived in fine shape around a week or so after I ordered it (I got oh edo rocket and corpse princess when they were on sale for $10 per part a long time ago)

I was looking around Funimation's shop for some filler to maybe add so I could get free shipping on the Season 4 and Season 5 DBZ Blu-ray's and noticed that a few things were on sale. I'm not sure how these prices stack up historically but I figured I'd post a few that caught my eye.

Strike Witches Season 1 S.A.V.E. Blu-ray $13.74
http://shop.funimati...ss?itemid=81835

Strike Witches Season 2 S.A.V.E. Blu-ray $13.74
http://shop.funimati...ss?itemid=83957

Cat Planet Cuties Complete Series S.A.V.E. Blu-ray (preorder) $13.74
http://shop.funimati...ss?itemid=84581

Shangri-la Complete Series S.A.V.E. DVD (preorder) $12.99

I hope those links work since I'm posting from my phone.

These are the cheapest on Funimation atm since they are part of their "Deals" selection, so the prices are pretty good.

 

The Blu-ray sets listed are all supposed to be Blu/DVD sets, but for some reason it doesn't specify that on the Season 1 listing title, but it is in the details format at the bottom.

 

You would think they would have that listed in the title for their own site, but ya, they didn't, so just be aware.

 

I may just end up ordering it from the site and paying shipping since I can't seem to find anything to add that I don't already own/or for a good price, which is still a pretty good deal since it doesn't appear Amazon is going to match it.

 

The response to the price match I got from Amazon was that I should try to use my wishlist to check on items that are out of stock so I'll know when they come back in stock.  Yeah, that was helpful. @_@

Well I went ahead and added both Strike Witches seasons to get free shipping on the DBZ's so I'll know soon enough whether or not they include the DVDs. lol

Anyone here recommend getting fist of the north star complete tv series for $80.xx at rightstuf.com? I know if I buy it'll most likely wind up on the shelf and collect dust for awhile before I get to it and start watching it.

Thats about what $20 bucks per set if comparing the 4 split sets they previous release.  Maybe it's just me but I find that Discotek & Eastern Star stuff rarely go on sale.  I've been waiting a couple of years now on trying to get that last set for or under $30.  But it's the final arc which isn't the best in terms of quality anyway, so I'm in no hurry.

 

I say if your a fan, then yes.  It's going to sit on your shelf for collecting dust when your watching it anyway, 21 discs is a long long marathon.  Just looked at some pics of it on Amazon, that case is huge.

Wow, that was quick; received my shipment from Funimation yesterday evening after ordering it the morning prior. I guess that's one benefit of living on the other side of town from Funimation. lol

 

So I figure I'd clarify a few things since Amazon isn't going to price match the Funimation sale. 1) Items ship as they are available. So, in my order, I had two preorders (DBZ Seasons 4 & 5) and two items that were already available. The available items shipped, and the remaining preorders will ship once they receive them. 2) Despite only being 2 Blu-rays to be shipped, they packaged them in a nicely padded box. This is a welcome change of pace compared to Amazon, who seem hell-bent on shipping everything in an envelope that'll look battle-worn by the time it arrives in my mailbox. 3) Yes, those Strike Witches seasons are Blu-ray & DVD even though their pages don't really clarify. Yay value!

 

All in all, a surprisingly good experience from Funimation's store. This thread has helped get me back into buying anime so I wanted to give my contribution, even if it's only an anecdote!

 

Also, I may bite on that Fist of the North Star collection. I've always wanted to do a marathon re-watch of it. I hope the video quality is good enough. Still have flashbacks of the Galaxy Express 999 DVD release. @_@

If Amazon hadn't price matched by now they wouldn't do it anyways, so not surprised.

 

Good to know about the way they pack their items though, so that's good.

 

And on those SAVE sets I was actually noting it to people that they don't have to be afraid that they don't come with it because I knew for a fact that they do, so was trying to make sure people knew what they were getting even though their own website wasn't very clear about it. ;D

 

Glad to hear you're happy with your Funi purchase though.

I still have to shake the case, but not that much more than any of my Power Rangers sets or most of my thinpak sets.

There's still a pending authorization on my card for the entire order, so I am just assuming they charge right away for preorders since they weren't specifically separated out from the rest of the order.

It's an Import Edition though. I'm going to hold out for an English Dub. But because I am a huge fan of the series, and if there is no other alternative, I'll go through the expensive Aniplex route. -__-

I wouldn't mind getting this but Aniplex titles are so exspensive. And the fact that no one other then Rightstuf and the AoA sell the titles makes it a pain as well. Sucks that AoA won't license the rights to sell to other companys.

I really want this, but now that I think about it I also really liked the dub from the games. Knowing this will be way too expensive I think I'm just going to wait and see with this one. How likely is this to get a dub release down the line (and how likely will it be dubbed by the original game's cast? :P)?
