Anyone have a link to what they had on sale last year?

2011 and 2010 for the heck of it.

Tenchi just got Pioneer's first bluray remaster, so buying the Ryo-oh-ki DVDs seem like a waste.

Wrong release. This is OVA 3. It was never released by Pioneer (only by FUNimation) and never gotten a Blu-ray release in Japan either.

I knew it was OAV 3. I just thought the remastered included these. But I guess the remasters are just the original 13.

This sale has been a huge letdown so far. Even the stuff I was hoping to see isn't discounted enough. I see repeats from last year that are more expensive this time around, too. :/

I have heard good things about L/R and if I cared at all about keeping up with One Piece I would bite on those, but, eh.

The ring is actually pretty nice, and not cheap-looking at all. See?

I'd expect that they're long gone by now, however.


It does look nice. It doesn't say here that its gone though.

Interested in kurenai and Rozen Maiden. Been waiting for kurenai to drop in price. We'll probably never get a Blu-ray release since the series isn't as popular as a Clannad or Angel Beats, so I'll take what I can get, I suppose. Just need one more item to get free S&H. I'll wait to see what else pops up.

I'm really hoping a retailer starts selling the FMA: Brotherhood "part" sets for a cheap price. I'm aware Amazon has the whole series on sale, but I already have part one and two and prefer the artwork provided with the "part" sets so I want to remain consistent.

It would also be nice if Fist of the North Star and Lupin III went on sale. I guess TRSI can't have a studio sale on Discotek stuff, it seems.

All the S.A.V.E. covers are reversible so that the neon green spine doesn't get seen on shelves.

That sucks about Gurren Lagaan. Are the movies worth checking out?

The Tenchi Ryo Ohki Collection is the only release I would consider at this point.

Any recommendations for Excel Saga? I'm a big fan of Bobobo and this series appeared to have the same style of random humor.

It's actually most rather than all (if you consider reversible cover as having the series title on the spine). If that's the case, it's hit and miss on releases prior to early 2011.

Not all of them. Heroic Age's blu-ray reverses into just a picture so the spine doesn't have the name of the anime on it or anything.

I haven't seen them, but from what I hear the ending is much better than the series.

It is quite insane, but it focuses on a general theme each episode instead of just random wackiness. For example, one episode is a parody of sci-fi, another is war movies, another contrasts American and Japanese animation, etc. A lot of people prefer Larissa Wolcott's Excel from the second half of the series over Jessica Calvello's, but I thought Calvello's voice was perfect and Wolcott just doesn't compare.

I love Excel Saga, it has great, random, off-the-wall humor. It's definitely a guilty pleasure favorite. :)

I had a one without reversible cover, but most of them are.

^Well, it's nice that there's something I actually want in this wave: Both Kobato collections.

Does anyone have an opinion on Otogi Zoshi? For that matter, I notice that a bunch of live-action Korean dramas are on sale, and I'm curious--are any of them actually good (the ones that sound interesting, at least in this wave, are City Hunter, City Hall, and Alone in Love)?

Last Beaten/Completed Console/Portable Games:  :ps3: LoH: Trails of Cold Steel (4.75/5) :3ds: HM: Project Mirai DX (4.0/5)

So the moral of the story is Vig is awesome; all glory to the master flipper.

Just a heads-up (for those who don't know already) on the Korean live-action dramas, YA Entertainment is going out of business. It would be a good idea to pick up any titles under them (particular ones from this whole sale) sooner rather than later.

Definitely in for Kobato.

Might even grab Dream Eater Merry and No.6.

Decisions, decisions...

Another question about the Korean dramas, for those who can answer: Does the content ever get to..."objectionable" levels, particularly in terms of romance (e.g., sexual content/nudity)? I'm just curious, since I'm not familiar with K-dramas.

Rarely. Korean mainstream TV is censored. The most sexual content you'll see would be some making out and what not. There's no nudity.

Also, is the anime No. 6 worth a blind buy? It looks kinda interesting.

They're not porn. Asian dramas are just prime time shows. It'd be like asking if Hart of Dixie has nudity.

Edit: That said, I don't watch them. My mom did, as I was growing up. Korean ones typically are higher recommended though.

Thanks, guys; that's good to know.

Now I'm genuinely interested in some of these shows, even moreso given that a few of the $30-and-under collections are upwards of 800 minutes long. :shock:

Any thoughts on the three series I mentioned (Alone in Love, City Hall, and City Hunter) would be appreciated. :) I did look them up on Amazon, but I'd still like to hear some CAGs' opinions, if there are any.

I'd say so for that price.

I'd recommend City Hunter, and you don't need to be a fan of the manga or even have read it to be able to get into it. They're quite different from one another, so if you are a fan of the manga or anime don't go in expecting it to have the same type of feel to it. Definitely doesn't take anything away from the show though.

I didn't even know it was a manga/anime property until I searched for the show on Amazon, so I don't have to worry about the show having a different "feel" to it.

From what I gather, a very (very, very) basic way to describe City Hunter is "Batman in Seoul"; is that true, even to a small degree?

Ehhh...not really...

The whole double life thing is basically where it ends as far as Batman is concerned.
