FLCL for $12.99.

Any thoughts on Shigofumi? Looked interesting when it came out, but I haven't kept up with anime much the past few years.

Hell to the yes. Amagami. On that!


Not sure if serious =P Reminds me of I''s though.

As serious as a heart attack, broski. I never joke about Amagami.

I'm at least glad Rightstuf has proper text listings of their stuff on sale, or at least offers an easy, information packed list. Amazon's anime sales are utterly stupid as hell to navigate through and because they use the dynamic page generation, you're often hosed if you click off the page and have to come back.

Shamploo on Blu for 17 bucks.

Anyone have any experience with the FMPs on Blu?

The plot of amagami sounds interesting, but damn I've spent too much already.

Guessing no, it hasn't been out long enough yet.

Confession time here, I own part one of Amagami SS. I normally have zero interest in romance anime, this one was just.....I don't even know why I liked it.
Spoiler


So yeah, I'll be getting part 2 of Amagami and the FLCL blu today, but I'm banking on them not going OOS before I can get my cart up to $50 again.

Too many great deals, but I've got to hold out a few more days to see if they put out something I REALLY want. Also, everyone buy Shigofumi, a desperately underrated anime that probably wasn't looked at much because JCStaff sucks at adapting almost everything.

I may have to consider it.

I think it's pretty lame that Tokimeki Check In is in both hentai game bundles.

Is Spice and Wolf worth picking up. I already have a sizable back log, and I can't decide if it actually looks like some I'm interested in. I just keep hearing so much positive that I keep considering it haha

I finished the first season and I really liked it. It's a bit loopy and all over the place but essentially it's the sort of romance that's less about romance and more about two clever people working together and often trolling the crap out of each other. (She more than he, but not annoyingly so. He seems to like the games anyway.)

It's probably one of (if not THE) greatest anime of the last few years. Show starts out a bit slow but once you get used to the main characters and how they interact with each other, you'll never stop watching. Rightstuf doesn't have them on sale (yet?) but Amazon has the best deal on season 1 and 2 until the end of the day.

I'm pretty sure I read that their Cyber Monday Week went on until the end of the 3rd. I picked up both Spice and Wolf seasons today just in case they did happen to end tomorrow.

I just ordered it myself since it was cheap. Season 2 is cheap too, but I'm not fully sure if I'll love it.

I see they put Dead Leaves up again which means I would need to decide on another show(s) to purchase in order to meet that $50+ free shipping requirement.

Does anyone here recommend Oh! Edo Rocket?

First post is cleaned up. As expected the Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals are still active. I added the active FUNimation special bargain bundles and select notables on the currently Weekly Specials (that are not part of the other deals).

Most of the FUNimation titles will go to that date. Pricing fluctuations may still occur just like any other Amazon.com listing.

Any recommendations for a guy who liked ergo proxy, neon genesis evangelion, cowboy bebop , and elfen lied? I like some of the deeper shows, was looking at claymore and gunslinger girl, were those any good?

Claymore is fantastic. The anime doesn't cover nearly all of the story though, so if you get hooked you'll be moving over to the manga.

I really enjoyed Claymore as a whole, despite the not-so-great ending. Some people really dislike how whiny one of the main characters is, but it didn't bother me too much. It's a worthwhile purchase in my eyes.

Can't say much about gunslinger girl as I have yet to start watching it but, from what I have heard, the first season is good.

The first season of Gunslinger Girl was good, after that it bombed.

First season's great. My personal favorite. The problem was that the first season (and the first volumes of the manga) were really character based. Then the manga had a great story arc (Pino), but the second season turned that story arc to less than spectacular.

I tried to read the Vol 7-8 omnibus that I preordered months ago, but I last read volume 6 like in 2005, or whenever it last came out.

As for Claymore, my GF likes the manga, and she's read to about 12. Just ordered up to 19 our whatever was on sale from Rightstuf, so she'll be caught up soon. We have the anime, but we haven't watched it.

Claymore's not particularly deep but I enjoyed the action, and I really can't speak for Gunslinger Girl. For an extra recommendation, from everything available I'd say that Casshern Sins is the cream of the crop in terms of having actual substance.

Thanks I got casshern sins and claymore mixed up, probably because of the box art.
