Yeah, but only the first is out. ;P


Yeah, its gonna be awhile before the whole thing of course. It looks like 18 bluray releases for the entire series with 2 per level, judging by the back of the copy I got in the mail right after posted last.

Thanks a lot for sharing this, was planning to buy all four of them when they get cheaper but this perfect. I hope they do a bundle for Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood.


I'm crossing my fingers for a Brotherhood Blu-Ray Bundle as well

Aren't these just upconverts though? Yes theyt *look* better, but they are not re-scans of the original cells or whatever these cartoons were originally done on like the old Looney Tunes and Charlie Brown, please correect me as I would love to get them. But with the DVD's easily had at Amazon last I checked for about $10-12 this is a hard sell for me.

With the "$10-12" per season USED DVDs on Amazon you're looking at, you're not factoring in the $2.98 shipping costs for each season.

This bundle would be about $16.25 per Blu-ray season and free shipping. Plus it is definitely NOT just an upconvert.

I already ordered mine when I first saw this post, and I keep checking it to see if anyone has heard about it shipping or has gotten theirs.

But then I saw that comparison video and it kicked the nostalgia drive into high gear and I want this about 100x more than I did a few days ago. I hate all of you, the wait is killing me lol

According to RightStuf customer service, these are on backorder until on or around Nov. 22. I assume they don't actually have stock yet since Vol. 4 doesn't release until the end of the month.

I did the math after I posted and bought the set.

On Amazon, I was seing the new volumes for $8.99 and $9.99 not long ago.

I've been a Prime subscriber from since Prime was first introduced, so shipping is already paid for.

The DVD sets are all around $15-$22 directly from Amazon. It would cost you $71.28 to buy them right now.

Of course, you can get them cheaper elsewhere. I know volumes 3 and 4 pop up for about $8 each on Walmart's website from time-to-time, but I've never seen volume 2 new for less than $17, though.

And while they're all about $11-$12 used on Amazon, those are third party sellers, where your prime membership doesn't apply. You'll be paying an extra $2.98 on each set. So at that point, it isn't going to be much cheaper than just buying the superior Blu-ray set from RightStuf.

Which, now that I've posted this, I've re-read your post and realized that you've already bought the Blu-rays. Hahahahaha. I'm smart. ^^;

I don't know why we're even comparing the prices of the DVD's to the Blu-ray as if they're even on the same level. The Blu-rays should cost more because it looks a million times better than the DVD's. I've gone through a season and a half of it on DVD and I can say without a doubt that the screens and videos I'm seeing of the HD remasters show a huge difference and one worth upgrading for.

Rightstuf is selling it for a price that's on par with, or at the very least just a small amount extra than the DVD's. If you have a BD player and have any interest in the show, it's a no-brainer to get in on this deal instead of the DVD's

I'm in complete agreement that the BD versions are head and shoulders better than the DVD counterparts.

Now if only they would release the OVA/Movie set in bluray.

http://www.amazon.co...20899469&sr=8-1

I don't know why they aren't just doing a same day release.

If you watch the DVDs on Amazon they regularly drop down to $9.99 each, give or take a $1. Directly from Amazon too, brand new.

That really isn't true at all. I check the prices of the DVD's often and they don't regularly drop to $9.99 (give or take $1) directly from Amazon. Even during sales they rarely drop that low.

But hey don't take my word for it, let's check out CamelCamelCemel. Granted they miss some sales (like say lightning deals or something) but for the most part their tracking is very reliable:

Season 1 (lowest: $13.49)
Season 2 (lowest: $13.49)
Season 3 (lowest: $10.99)
Season 4 (lowest: $11.49)

None of those sales that are even close to $9.99 have been on a regular basis either, they were for very limited periods according to the graphs. So are you claiming you're correct and CCC is wrong?

I've seen them for $9.99 give or take, perhaps not that recent though since I stopped watching them. I know they have though.

This is slightly off topic, but amazon really needs to have another anime sale. Their prices kind of suck compared to what they have been in the past right now.

They normally run one for new years, so it may be a more or two more before then.

I'm hopeful for a black friday one, but new years is definitely a good bet.

Thank you for ordering from Right Stuf, Inc. - Your Anime Superstore!
Unfortunately we are unable to ship your complete order due to the unforeseen demand for the item listed below, or your item is not yet released

Maaaaaan, I guess I won't get it early =(

They dumped some anime blu's into last year's sale, so I would keep an eye out just in case for this time around.

You never know. :3

I got one too. RightStuf likes to send these things out all the time for preorders. I must have gotten three of them when I preordered the first DragonBox, and I still got it a week-or-so early.

Granted, we're rapidly approaching the release date, but still.

EDIT: I should note that my order on RightStuf's website has been updated to say that all of the items have been "Reserved for your order", where as seasons one and four were both backordered last week.

Mine says the same thing.

This is the first time I've ordered from RightStuf, my ship date says Nov. 11 but says Not Yet Shipped under Status. What does that mean? Has it shipped or not?

It means it hasn't shipped yet it will say it's been shipped when it does ignore the date.
