Funimation Amazon Blu-Ray sell till Jan 31st

Anybody get anything besides C Control or Soul Eater?

I am watching C Control and I see a guy get possessed by an ATM, get in a fancy cab that shows a lot of rainbow lights, then disappears Martian Manhunter-style into a wall, have the guy fight a pretty boy using some weird mutant Digimon clone, only to get stabbed with a giant sword made out of Japanese yen. All before the opening credits. Sometimes I just love anime.

Here I thought getting into a cab that flashed party lights meant I get a free cab ride and, if I know random non-porn trivia, get a thousand dollars or so too.


I'm still slightly disappointed that Soul Eater went on sale right after I picked it up for $36 on the Rightstuf sale. :| Oh well I'm still satisfied with it at that price.

I picked up (from Funimation and Bandai sale) C Control, Gurren Lagann box, Gurren Lagann 2, all Ghost Slayers Ayashi (though I hear its not that great), My Zhime Zwei LE Box, all of Haruhi LE (-Vol.1 which was just a bundle), and I guess you can count FMA Brotherhood Collection 1/2 on Bluray when they were ~$55 for both of them.

I'm pretty sure I've talked myself out of dishing out $92 for Yu Yu Hakusho on Bluray. I'm still trying to decide on the $25 Shana. I like your Cash Cab reference BTW. :P

I only picked up Soul Eater, but I already owned everything else from this sale that I wanted that was at a good price. I ordered a decent amount of anime from Deep Discount and Rightstuf last month, so I'm shying away from making too many additional anime purchases for a while.

I was on the fence about C Control, but I don't think it would be a series I'd watch again. It has an interesting premise and good execution, but suffers from having too few episodes and I felt it was a bit rushed. I do think it's worth watching once though.

Yu Yu Hakusho is a safe pass at that price, as with patience, you should be able to pick up the series for $80 or less. I can almost guarantee that Amazon will have them for $20 or less a volume at some point this year. Shakugan no Shana is a definite buy at $25, although I admit I'm unfairly biased towards that series.

Yeah, I'll just wait it out and pick up Yu Yu Hakusho if it gets cheaper. I have till the end of January to decide if I'm going to pick up Shana, but I'm almost certain I'll end up biting on it!

Thanks for your input G33! 8-)

ok so whats worth getting besides soul eater and c control?

First, how can you claim prior non-existance to devalue a movement? I am sure the civil rights movement would love that. "Well, there was no movement to free the slaves before, so why is it relavent now?"

Hellsing Ultimate is good, Shakugan no Shana is good, and Aria the Scarlett Ammo looked very interesting. An older title in the sale that's great is Samurai Champloo.

There's 5 left now. Funny, the fact that it wasn't available made me jump at this as soon as I read your post. The thing is, I had plenty of time to buy it before it went out of stock the first time and chose not to do so. :roll:

Shiki is a solid series that is part of the sale. Be warned, it is extremely dark in tone and the story and characters are very messed up. Extremely entertaining though.

Theres 1 C Control left again. I don't understand how they keep putting it back up with such limited stock each time. Its not like Funimation is only sending them 2 or 3 at a time?

I've heard...mediocre things about C-Control, so why are so many people buying it? Is it because it's coming in and out of stock? Also, is Shakugan no Shana a pretty typical action anime or something more? I figure with it having three seasons, it was somewhat popular.

I'm...a little late to this party. Holidays kept me from perusing the list when it was released. Anything left that's good that I may have missed?

I got 2 questions, does anyone have any opinions on Oblivon Island and the Tales of Vesperia movie?

Also, if they're good are those good prices or can they easily be found cheaper?

They were both just cheaper during the previous Amazon sale, and also at Rightstuf.

I wouldn't say easily found cheaper anytime soon, but if you're in no rush it may be worth the wait to save a few bucks since that's how cheap they were in the previous sale.

Idk about Tales of Vesperia but Oblivion Island wasn't anything special IMO. The only reason I watched it was because I won it at FP. I would have been disappointed if I had paid for it. In saying all that if you have any kids/siblings that are young, I'm sure they would love it.

It was decent but yeah I say it was meant for a younger crowd.

C-Control is very, very pretty. The show itself is OK, but you will get a lot more out of it if you are familiar with economics. It keeps being picked up because, as I said earlier, it is a new release that is 60% off. It is normally on sale for around $40 or so, so snap it up while one can.

Price went up to $29.49.

I enjoyed Tales of Vesperia quite a bit and I've never played the game, so don't feel like you need to as a prerequisite. Pick it up if you're interested.

Well, Shakugan no Shana went up before I pulled the trigger.....I know its only $5 more, but I most likely won't be picking it up now. >.>

Ergo proxy just went up. Sucks, I had it in my cart, but couldn't pull the trigger last night because I couldn't use credit I had through my phone, and no computer access until today. Oh well, I now have a baseline I won't pay more than, and I'll save money until it hits that number again.
