I have a lot of what I want from this sale, but the Soul Eater Meister Collection is $30 and I might bite on that. Also eying Slayers Revolution, the One Piece movie, and maybe Witchblade for lulz.
Thanks for your input. After doing some more thinking and looking at reviews/thoughts on Baccano!, I bit on it. I'm hoping I'll love it as much as many, many people apparently do.
I would still appreciate input on the other three series I mentioned (Darker Than BLACK, Eden of the East, Samurai Champloo), as I should hopefully be able to get one more item from this sale before it's over.
Darker Than Black's quality is pretty uneven, with it definitely having better or worse episodes. It's fairly episodic while also having an overarching plot, so while the core premise is always intriguing the individual episodes don't always work wonders with that premise.
Eden of the East is a good conspiracy thriller, and while it has some commentary on Japanese culture that's not exactly relevant or discernible to overseas viewers, it's mostly an intelligent action series with good animation and an engrossing plot.
Samurai Champloo is one of the all-time greats and is in a lot of ways a sister show to Cowboy Bebop set in 18th century Japan. It has an anachronistic hip-hop-fused visual style that works amazingly, really great animation, consistently-good plot, off-beat characters with great chemistry, and one of the best English dubs of any anime. It's probably the best buy for the money of any blu in the sale, especially if you've never seen it before.
