I'd sell you my fruits basket box, but it fell off the shelf, and I fell on it one night, so it's very damaged, but not destroyed.  Whoops wrong person

I got lucky and bought that version of fruits basket used on amazon for $15 the other week used in pretty good condition. I think the later edition had an art book or something cool but I liked the art box from this version.

Thanks for the heads up. Probably will pick up the Classic version then. And yeah that slipbox is pretty nice. Too bad that one in the auction is pretty beat up.

 

 

Yeah this was dicussed in the anime section at br.com. Sentai have addressed this issue by stating they are aware of it and any future release won't have them. Also you can use the hair dryer method and remove them that way. I was going to try goo gone but after reading about people even attempting to remove I just cut them. I will try the hair dryer method later.
 

Yeah I did try the hair dryer method and it worked on some of the sticker,but you'll still ruin the cover on some parts. If you manage to pull it off without ripping it you'll leave a sticker residue mark. It sucks but what could you do.

I have the collectors edition of fruits basket with the art book it looks nice on my shelf :). What are the chances we will see a lucky star blu ray release here in the states?

goo be gone doesn't work? I know it's really heavy and if used incorrectly can eff up your box.

It works. It only messes it up if you put too much and/or rub too much

Noted. I messed up my edition of Walking Dead Season 1 SE with GBG so I figured it wouldn't work on art box esque packaging. Haven't tried it on slipcovers. Idk what these companies get out of odd sticker placement that is damn near impossible to peel off.

These work way better than goo gone and are less messy.

I've been in the slip game since 2009 and I can confirm that Goo Gone will work on slips. The only slips that it can damage are the felt/velvet type slips like Casino Royale and Remember Me or the matted slips like The Last Exorcism.

Just apply Goo Gone to the sticker witha Q-tip, wait a minute and then remove the sticker. If there is any sticky residue left follow the same process and wipe off with toilet paper.

I grabbed that used a year or so ago from GoHastings. The first episode is terrible for several reasons but from that point on it isn't terrible. It's a prequel anime to the manga, Gai Rei which I heard isn't all that great and seems a lot like Bleach. Just think of it as a more effed up version and the sisters are veryyyy close. 

 

(I would suggest waiting for it to dip below $25 but that's just me...)

I swear it's been cheaper.  Decent show, though nothing I'd go out and buy.

According to the price tracker at br.com this is the cheapest it has been.

And supposedly it has been tracking it since 2011. This is only taking into account Amazon of course. So it may have been cheaper somewhere else. I think I can wait till this is under $25 before I pick it up.

For almost all sticker residue, I use scotch tape. Goo Be Gone didn't help when I had remnants of the plastic wrapping stuck to my Full Metal Alchemist DVDs. It just made the case smell. Just get a piece of scotch tape, place it on the sticker residue, then peel. You don't need to tear it away fast as that may be damaging. It's a meticulous process. I once spent 20 minutes and used 6 pieces of tape to get some crap off something, but hey, if you're really OCD like me about getting a clean finish, it's worth it. If the tape doesn't remove anything, then I use a hair dryer for about 20 seconds to heat the area up. It makes the sticker more susceptible to coming off. Goo Be Gone should be a last resort.

Thanks for all the help. I think I'll refrain from GBG now and possibly forever. That thing also smells really really bad

Does anyone have a picture of all the dragonball, z and gt vhs tapes edited and uncut that came out. I am trying to see what i'm missing

Sorry, but all I have are the DBZ DVD's during that time. Must have spent close to, if not more than, $1000 to get them all.

 

At least you guys have stickers. Some of my DBZ DVD covers would be ripped at the bottom since the slipcovers were slightly betterthan the DVD cases. I have to have those lengthy security stickers from the bottom so the picture wouldn't be ripped. No Goo Gone (what the heck is Goo BE Gone?) will fix that.

 

I noticed the Battle of Gods Blu Ray is available for preorder on Amazon for $24.49. Do you guys think I should buy it from them or wait until later this year during Rightstuf's holiday sale?

This isn't really anime related, but everyone that I want to notify about this reads this thread.  I just noticed that they've changed the way the listings show up when browsing Amazon Warehouse Deals.  They now list a New and Used price on the item like you'd see on a regular search instead of just the AWD price.  With the weird video formats that showed up earlier I originally thought they moved a bunch of new stuff to the AWD section, but I just found out that's not the case.   To better explain:

 

Persona 4 Golden (the AWD price is $17.99 used) shows

$16.90 new

$14.50 used

Just a heads up.  Yesterday I was in a Dollar Tree killing time waiting for another store to open and noticed they had multiple DVD copies of Tekkonkinkreet for a buck.  I would've picked one up if I didn't already have it on blu.  Figured I'd post it in case anyone is looking for it.  This was at the Pittsburgh Mills store.

Not bad, it's a great movie for those that haven't seen it. The blu version is totally worth it though. :D

I rarely say this, but if you haven't picked any of them up by now I would just wait for them to bundle them all together into a single set., Unless, of course, if you can get them for around $10-15/set.

 

Until they announce that it will be a SAVE set and that they will remove the blu ray discs. :roll:

Gonna have to say that it's going to go to the Anime Classics line... It seems be be a bigger title in Funimations catalog. so it shouldn't go DVD only...

Makes sense, thanks. Im guessing that means you recommend the show?

I personally like both the all-canon Hellsing Ultimate and the original Hellsing anime. But Ultimate is obviously the better buy. It sucks that the last two OVA's have to be in one set but that was all due to Geneon going under and then they merged with Universal. I can only see this hitting the Anime Classics line in late 2015/early 2016.

If you like character growth, well thought out plots, and superb storytelling - no.  Otherwise if you are looking for some good over-the top characters and action framed in a bit of a horror setting (as in they're vampires, but it's not Nosferatu) then yes.  And as Chris said, they're both pretty good.  Between the two I think I like Ultimate better (though I've only watched up to where Geneon left off).

 

Late 2015 you think, Chris?  If I had to make a guess I would think it would be out by summer of next year

Eh, it all depends. Funimation's marketing team always confuses me. Hellsing could go down the line much sooner but I would at least think that they would want the older sets to start to sell out throughout the year. I guess it all depends on sales at this point. 

 

And boy, the LE box I have for the first 8 OVA's will sure look silly once the last two come out. =/

Hellsing Ultimate is brilliant. I am ecstatic for the last release. I would recommend the original series to start off with since there is a complete series and the individual DVDs don't cost much either. If you're a collector some of the original DVDs came with a Hellsing patch so I have a few of those. It's a great show, little slow but it's really good.

 

Ultimate follows the manga more closely and is again, brilliant. It's got everything an anime should have. Overall very good. Also the Major's speech is one of the deepest things in anime history imo. 

 

Wait for the SAVE or Anime Classics line as collecting the first four chapters is a pain since it rarely comes on sale, the next four always do at about 24.99 (blu) and then the final chapters will release in October. So WAIT. But if you can't just stream em online
