Online Shopping for Anime Complaints
On today's menu, I sought to partake of Black Cat, an anime which has gripped me on Funimation's cable On Demand. Noticing there are two full sets for a decent price on Right Stuf, and being as obsessive as I am about not getting screwed, I went searching for information about the differences in the sets. The first stop was Mania, a good resource for finding information on the packaging, but alas they only had dismal information on one set, that the cheaper non-"Viridian" one used a "digipak" style that I'm not terribly fond of since it was used in my Death Note sets. Granted, any anime enthusiast should know by now that Funimation's Viridian collections are more cheaply packaged, but I wouldn't mind a flimsier box if the individual volumes were done differently. Plus, the Viridian packaging helps the environment! /fake enthusiasm
So cut to the Amazon searching, which provides numerous reviews on nothing more than the content of the series, which brings me to the whole reason why I'm sitting here typing.
Why in the hell did it become standard practice to review almost solely the plot of anime on Amazon and not the physical product? Aren't there already enough places to view peoples' critiques of shows? Why don't these imbeciles ever address things such as the packaging (pretty important on sets), the dub track (something you can't grace from sites that review based on fansubs), or the extras?
