Interesting, but some of those series must look like ass... for example, they took Heat Guy J from 7 discs down to 4.

I wonder how badly the quality suffers.

I doubt the quality has changed at all. The total runtime is 650 minutes across those 4 discs. They could easily fit that on 4 discs without losing any quality. They likely just stretched out the individual volumes to get more $$$

They're also going from single-layer to dual-layer discs, so there shouldn't be any reduction in quality.

You shouldn't shove much more than 120 minutes on a DVD... this is the reason that releases like Seven Samurai and extended edition of The Lord of the Rings films have been broken up into two parts across two discs.

At 125 minutes a disc (which is 5 episodes), they should take up at least 5 discs. Realistically, they should take up 6 discs to maintain optimal image quality.

Even with improved compression technology, four discs for 650 minutes is stretching it... especially for animated content which, even on Blu-ray in its infancy, has been notorious when it comes to suffering from digitization.

Bingo that isn't an issue. Weird list though some real random stuff marked down.

Does the street fighter II V suck or what? 800 minutes for 18 bucks seems pretty solid.

It's so loosely related that it could have been called something else despite having the main cast. All of the characters are really different in design and background save for a few. I like it for nostalgia's sake but it's not necessarily good.

Every time I see an anime sale I get excited, and then I realize how much anime I don't care about can go on sale instead.

Same, and for the few on sale that I do like, I had already bought when they were nearly three times this price so it's even more depressing.

How are Air and Konan?

I love Air personally, (also the movie is quite good) the animation is bright for the most part and its a up and down series emotionally. Cant speak for Konan

Dr. Strange CAG- Or how I learned to stop worrying and love cheap stuff.

Christianity: The belief that a Jewish cosmic zombie who was his own father can make you live forever if you symbolically eat his flesh and telepathically tell him you accept him as your master so he can remove an evil force from your soul that is present in humanity because a rib-woman was convinced by a talking snake to eat fruit from a magical tree.

It's the Count of Monte Cristo. In space.

You can't go wrong.

A word of warning though: it's dark. Very dark. It's some of the most soul-crushing stuff you will see. ;)

There's more than just those on sale. Looks like all the S.A.V.E. boxsets, including Nerima Daikon Brothers, Pani Poni Dash, and Kurau.

I just took all your Pani Poni Dash on Goozex before I realized there was a S.A.V.E. boxset on sale for $14, haha. Oh well, I'll pick up a few other things from this sale I think, and I'll find room somewhere on my shelves.

does anyone know if the little S.A.V.E thing is just a sticker on the case? because some of the other views show it with the S.A.V.E part, and im refusing to buy them if its part of the actual cover because it ruins the artwork to me

Anything with giant, bouncing titties and even bigger rampaging robots?

Now that, my friend, is a shared moment.

Two of the greatest romance/drama animes around.

Edit: Though Kanon is MUCH better than Air

Oooh. My cart's at $126, which is a bit more than I want to spend. Anyone have opinions on Kurau, Ghost Hunt, Red Garden, Beck, Paniponi, or Rumbling? Never watched any of 'em, but they all look interesting enough. But if they're all fantastic, I guess I'll have to bite... X_X

Beck is pretty solid. A guy who loves music learns how to play guitar and joins a band as the last piece of the puzzle. I liked it when I saw it on the Funimation channel.

And I'll second Gankutsuou. Great series, and surprisingly faithful to the source material. (at least, until toward the end, when the plot takes a left turn.) I liked that they told the story from Albert's perspective, giving the story a very different feel.

It's a green logo as part of the artwork, BUT it should be reversible for the original artwork

I'm pretty sure the ones with the little green strip that covers the artwork are just stickers slapped on the previous expensive releases.

The ones where the whole spine of the case is green is part of the cover, but most of them have artwork on the other side so you can just reverse them.
