Ordered 2 things from the Best Buy sale and both backordered. So both getting sent separately. As expected one of my Best Buy orders arrived damaged. It was shipped in a gray plastic wrap with no padding. So the blu-ray case was cracked. Trying to get a replacement might end up being pointless because it will just getting shipped in the same manner. 

 

To save everyone the trouble, here is a place where you can buy replacement cases:

 

Casetopia: http://www.casetopia.com

Casetopia ebay: http://stores.ebay.com/casetopia/

 

I recommend going to their ebay page and purchasing the case. Because their main site sells some of them in bulk. So if you only need 1 or 2 cases replaced go to their ebay page. If you need a lot, go to their website.

Might look into buying some replacement cases from them. They are even in Chattanooga, TN which is right next door to where I live.

Spoiler

 

I know how people feel about Guilty Crown on here, but I for one really enjoyed it. I bought the LE and I couldn't have been more satisfied. I felt like both art books and the box were really nice quality, and everything fits nice and snug within the LE box. I would personally recommend the LE, but it is kind of hard to say that, seeing as you would be double dipping. Guess it comes down to how much you want the LE box and two art books.

I ended up buying the UFO Ultramaiden Valkyrie series from Bestbuy for $19.99, looked decent enough and if I don't like it I can always make my money back.

If you do like it though you'll have make sure to pick up S3 & 4 as well afterwards.  The set you bought only contains S1 + 2, and was published by ADV at the time.  Later Funi picked up the license and did S3 + 4, so it's a separate release from the set you purchased.  S3 + 4 are way shorter though, and both combined are only about 8 episodes (6 for S3 and 2 for S4).  Not sure if you knew what you bought isn't the full series, but just in case you didn't.

Going to have to stop by Costco this weekend :) Do not own any Ghibli Disney films atm. They announced they were going to bring Mononoke and The Cat Returns also a week or so ago. 

 

What are some other good anime films out there? I currently own From Up on Poppy Hill, Grave of the Fireflies, Oblivion Island, Ninja Scroll, King of Thorns, as well as Wolf Children/Summer Wars.

If you like older TV Shows, Costco always has a bunch of boxsets usually cheaper than Amazon. They just had Black Adder and Fawlty Towers Complete Sets for $19.99, almost half what Amazon wants for them.

Thanks for that, I'll probably pick it up for under $10.00 sometime.

Michiko & Hatchin or any Funimation release with a box (two parters) have Part 1 with no slip and part 2 with a slip (pertaining you bought it soon after it's release). I think I ended up getting rid of the slip from Steins;gate P2 but kept them in Hellsing Ultimate/M&H. They fit but just barely.

Oh I'm aware. I'm way too addicted to those pretty boxes not to be. haha

If I was a member I would be all over those blu-rays and Kiki's Delivery Service! I have never even been to a Costco.

The food place here doesn't even look at your membership (there's one outside, and one inside).

Ours only have one inside. Used to be able to eat without a membership, but not anymore.
