I'm at 3/7 on Unicorn, and I've spent very little. It's really hard to find good deals on it, though. That's another release strategy that I loathe. Lol
Also, just found out that it's super easy to bypass region settings when using the Blu-ray drive in a PC. I'm in the process of building a monstrous gaming PC, so I might just go that route. It's not really the optimal way to watch something, but it will be hooked up to my receiver, so the surround sound will work, at least, and then there's no need to buy a region free blu-ray player.
I held off on the Unicorn blu-rays for as long as I could. However, seeing that Gundam Origin trailer the other day just made me realize that we probably won't see a Gundam series release here for a while, if ever. So I decided to splurge.
You know what I say to the Unicorn Blu-rays?
Gimme the DVD instead. Cheaper and in fewer discs so I can put them all in one case.
Also, if anyone here is a Pokemon fan, Viz has semi-announced that they will be re-releasing the Johto saga either later this year or early next.
I won't buy DVD releases anymore. I watch my anime on a 55inch TV, so I can see all the DVD imperfections. So if there is or will be a bluray version of said title, I will go with that one. The only titles that I will buy on DVD are Discotek titles.
I've become a rather large snob when it comes to DVD vs Bluray. I know they are much cheaper, but I just feel dirty about spending that much money--cause it's still not exactly 'cheap'--on DVDs when the blu-rays are extant.
Same here. The price difference between DVD and Bluray sets are only a few dollars.
I have a big 40 inch Samsung LED HDTV so I can see all of fine details of Blu Ray movies now. I can also see all of the imperfections of DVDs such as the major compression and the pixelation that comes from it. As for Aniplex and Japan only things, I'll go DVD (Darker than Black) or import it (Aniplex USA titles).
Gundam sadly is as you've noticed has some of the most picky licensing deals so that is probably the only exception to that whole ordeal where I can't blame you for grabbing the DVDs instead.
Same here. Honestly, I would be fine dropping $400 on the Gundam bluray sets as it is my all-time favorite anime/show/series. Sadly, none have english subtitles :(
