Thanks OP!

I grabbed (once Vol 4 LE came back in-stock/available):

The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya Vol 1 Bundle
The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, Volume 2 (Limited Edition)
The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, Volume 3 (Limited Edition)
The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, Volume 4 (Limited Edition)


Sorry to ask, but is this like ramma 1/2? I have kept up with anime in a long time.. I saw nijna scroll movie, ramma 1/2, ronin warriors, dragonball.
Is the 4 listed like the complete series? is it funny,etc. Is this better then sailor moon? (saw a few and itr was ok, but not into it)

Either english voice or subtitled, check for yourself under language in the description, code geass is a good series on the cheap for like 7/8 of the discs, and gurren laggan is great for $6 for the first part in that sexy LE box!!!

I was debating on code geass too. I love ramma 1/2 back then. It was funny.
I already decided on gurren laggan.

Im still debating on the 4 limited set. Its not bad, but it almost sounds like telling a story. Girl looking for aliens,etc. simon keeps her in check, but is there a good plot/story? It kind of feels like seinfeld, which isnt bad. Am i right?

Here is the link for that vol 1 limited. http://www.amazon.co...a Vol 1 limited

Is the vol 1 bundle u listed the same as this? What are the differences?

Slightly diff inserts is what i can tell limited editions 2-4 are $6 for it, so get part 1 bundle and 2-4 limited?

Its about a girl not knowing that if she gets bored she destroys the universe and makes a new one, so an alien, a timetraveler, and a girl with esp, and the normal guy make sure she isn't bored.

Both of the Cowboy Bebop links take you to the same product.


I dunno why... I actually tried to get rid of the hyperlinks! LOL

Also Suzumiya series is excellent overall - I just bought the set to preserve for the future to sell at outrageous prices to fans - MUWHAHAHAHA xD

But damn Lucky Star... I really wanted the other two limited edition sets to be cheaper! I needz it so bad!

...

What ticked be off though was that the 10% coupon thing didn't work (It's so hard to use the damn thing!)

the haruhi one? I thought there already was a blu-ray set - or is that just the japanese version.


I've already watched the entire series of Suzumiya haruhi - just waiting for the next parts of the novel to be made into anime form (hopefully 2013!)

I REALLY REALLY WANT Reborn! to be completed into anime form and have a far better ending than we got :(

Also I just realized that there's a typo in the title -Amazon Wharehouse (I thought it sounded weird)...

doubt it, bandais not doing too hot


This is a major issue - I just hope 4kids don't buy them out or something (for the gundam licenses); and if they fold that someone else gets them. Anyone, just not 4KIDS PLEASE!

I was considering buying Lucky Star, but volume 6 is over $100. Why is that?

Is there any difference between the Anime Legends version and just the 4 DVDs for the first season of Code Geass? I would love to own it. I would also jump on the second season if it was complete but alas.

Nope. In fact they both have the same discs just different packaging.

Hard to believe I paid nearly $30 for some boxes plus volume one (Haruhi and Gurren Lagann) back in the day. (Then again, I did pay well over $160 for Vision of Escaflowne in individual volumes...) All of these were well worth the money! I have no regrets!

The only thing I'm interested in is Code Geass, but since there are volumes not on sale or the box LE is unavailable, I'll have to pass. :(

Thanks OP. I own all of Gurren Lagann as 6 DVD singles (the "Part 1,2,3" sets that each came with slip covers), but I always wanted to get the Vol. 1 box set to display the series on my shelf. $6.00 for the box with Prime shipping is a no-brainer 8-)

Ordered vol 1-4 of the Haruhi LE sets as well as vol 3 Eureka SE. I'm tempted to order Lucky Star vol 1-3 LE, but the extras don't seem as nice as the Haruhi sets. I also don't want to track down LS 4-6 LE. I collected some LS figures so I think those are good enough extras to go with my regular DVD set.

Thanks op for the great find!

I really want to get that Gurren Lagann box set, but the second box is too expensive. If "Gurren Lagann 2" wasn't Japanese audio only, I would be all over it though.

They aren't here, but RightStuf has a ton of great complete seasons/series for under $20. Gun x Sword, Kaleido Star, D Gray Man, Jubei-chan 2, Guin Saga, Basilisk, Black Cat, Bamboo Blade, Romeo x Juliet, Initial D, Girls Bravo, Str.A.In, Yu Yu Hakusho, etc.

If you do a search for S.A.V.E. you can find a lot of good titles cheap. Amazon has some of them for $15, and if you have an FYE near you they are $15 there as well. And most of them you can get rid of the green banner on the side.

To other posters:

-4Kids doesn't have any anime anymore. They lost Pokemon to TPCI, One Piece to FUNimation, and Yu-Gi-Oh! to Konami. Even their CW Saturday block is owned by Saban now.

- For those who don't know, Bandai stopped licensing titles early this year and officially stopped shipping to retailers last month. The reason there aren't any cheap anime is because people like me are buying and sellig the boxsets. Though your local Best Buy MIGHT have some left between $30-$40.

If you have a MovieStop or FYE nearby, check them. They might have the volumes for a cheap price, hopefully used.

It's not Japanese audio only, the entire series was dubbed. Unless you're talking about the movies, then yes those are sub only.

Yeah, but the series was released in three sub-only sets before it was dubbed (and subsequently rereleased). That may be what they're talking about.

I managed to snag the complete series of Star Ocean EX for about $30 shipped on eBay last month, unrelated I know but they were all factory sealed.
