layton and Kekkaishi interest me, but alas I only see one piece collection 9 that interests me thus I can't get to free shipping so I will likely have to pass on them as they are limited counters.

 

note to anyone who looks at needless... it's a huge trap to buy it. it's collection 2 only, which is going for $12-15 on amazon while collection one is going for $50 plus... which is more than the complete series is ><:

Boo on Nura.  Dvd only, not all 4 of the released sets, and the description indicates that there will be a limited number available.

 

@Froz - They're overpriced too?  Double boo.

I might have to keep an eye on those :P

I don't care if my series are on DVD since I barely notice a difference due to my upscalers in my video playing program :P

It would appear Funimation was more focused on their own website as far as the "sales" were concerned.

 

Didn't seem like anybody really had any actual Funimation sales this year, other than Rightstuf with the occasional titles here and there, but for the most part it was pretty slim pickings.

 

Overall, the anime sales this year have been more or less a bust with the exception of Rightstuf, and the Funimation clearance sale.

 

It was as if the only people selling anime this year were the websites dedicated to selling anime...go figure...

nadia is really tempting... might have to talk to the wife about that one.. though I own like half the series on dvd already ><

 

Yu-Gi-Oh Classic: The Complete Series $110

Digimon Collection Seasons 1-4 $110

 

in general there are plenty of things on sale on best buy (just go to the movies section for cyber monday deals and sort from high to low) I didn't see anything else that was obviously a good price though.

Does anyone have any idea why Leviathan: The Last Defense got a re-release 6 months after it came out on Blu-Ray with a new english dub? I'm curious about picking up the show.

The new English dub isn't out until early next year in February.

 

It's most likely related to licensing issues.

 

Section 23 has a habit of not waiting to get the go ahead to do both, or one or the other, so instead of waiting to put it out they just sell what they can first, and then re-release it for others later on.  Funimation does the same thing with their DVD releases first, then into blu-ray, although they've gotten better with that with the recent releases.

FYE lets you use ANTLERS for 30% off and free shipping with no minimum.  I picked up some things marked at half-off and Dark Knight just because I felt like watching Batman.

 

Sorry about my earlier question post as well.  It came off as direct, rude, and hard to understand and I was trying to avoid making two posts - it came out terrible anyway.  I know what I'm doing with it though.

 

 

Thanks again Squarehard.  Maybe Amazon will have some sales in the coming days, but it seems RS wants our money much more.  It's kind of sad when Clover Media is beating you.

It's been $79.99 many times before, just pause your equines. &amp;nbsp;It's also dub only if that matters.


Thanks for the advice, I decide to wait till it drop to the 100$ dollar range and for the meantime I got myself the Disgaea artbook and Gun x Sword.

Sweet. Picked up the 3 Gundam Zeta movies for 14 bucks and some change. Not too bad. I'll watch these in place of collecting the overtly expensive series. I know its an alternate ending and some stuff is taken out so I'll youtube videos to find out what I missed. Super glad that they actually make these movies. Makes collecting a whole lot easier. Now my Gundam collection includes

 

Gundam 0080 War In The Pocket Complete

Gundam 08th MS Team Complete

Gundam Wing Complete in Collectible Artbox

Gundam SEED Complete

Mobile Suit Gundam The Movie Trilogy 1-3 Complete

Gundam Zeta I-II-III Movie Trilogy Complete 

Gundam Endless Waltz Special Edition

Interested in Nadesico only. I'm pretty sure it won't be selling out (unlike Gargantia... *cough*). I'll have to see if there are more things added over the next few weeks so I can place my order when it's all said and done to get free shipping.

Did anyone take a look at Crunchyroll's cyber Monday sales? They just saved this holiday from mediocrity!

^ that was sarcasm.


Also, Bestbuy has some stuff on sale too. Nothing impressive like the rest of the sales this year.

Vividred Operation...I just remember watching the first episode on Crunchyroll, seeing that the initial camera shot was between the legs of a girl too-young with a camel toe. I was like, yeah, I'm done. Nothing here.

Um...there are actually some deals on funimation! Some of the prices aren't updating correctly (samurai champloo's product page for example), but I'm seeing 27 bucks for the Aot Part 2 Limited Edition, 20 bucks for Samurai Champloo Blu ray, 20 for Spice Wolf Blu Ray, and idk what else. Nothing jaw dropping incredible, but good enough for me. 

 

Edit: Spice and Wolf Blu ray - 20.62

        Samurai Champloo Blu Ray - 20.62

        One Piece Z Blu Ray - 10.45

        Total - 51.69 (No Tax)

Hrm...I got a few of those same things from Rightstuf last year during their sale...And they were cheaper too I believe. First day is disappointing.

 

Any thoughts here on Book of Bantorra? That always looked interesting to me but never heard anything about it. Best Buy's sale is tempting.

Ah what the hell! I just bought One Piece Z from an Amazon seller for $16 shipped last week! :-P Oh well, they've also got One Piece Film: Strong World for $13.12 and I've been waiting ages for a good deal on that. So thanks for indirectly alerting me to that. :lol:

If I drop the 55 dollars for the funimation sub do I get the 25 dollar store credit immediately?

I learned my lesson from last year. Don't wait to buy everything in one big bulk shipment. Just hold off until you see enough stuff that you want to cover the free shipping.

 

For the first day, the only real thing interesting me is the Martian Successor box set. "Another" is a great series at a good price, but I already got a copy earlier.

Well it's made by the same guy who made Strike Witches, now that I know that I'll check it out.

From the Japanese Niche Games thread:

 

NIS Store Winter Sale is live.

 

http://store.nisamer...liday-sale-2014

 

They have some leftover Danganronpa 2 and Hyperdimension Neptunia PP limited editions, and a free Prinny ornament for orders over $40.

But for some reason, NISA forgot to list what's on sale or provide a link to them. :roll:

 

I found Natsume's Book of Friends S3 for $29.99, but S4 is still $55.99 for some dumb reason.
