Ive been holding off on time of eve import because of the potential of the stateside release: http://www.kickstart...ovie-on-blu-ray

I had considered that too, but there were a couple of things that convinced me to buy the import set.  The international release is for the film version, not the original 6 episodes.  Now, the film version is those same 6 episodes put together with additional new footage and a new ending added (so there's actually more content to be had with the kickstarter version).  The two are not the same thing, so buying one doesn't completely eliminate buying the other. 

 

The other reason is, I have no idea what the actual price will be of the international version once it's finished, but I doubt that it will be easy to get it for the $25 price of the import version here.

Does anyone have any thoughts on the Attack on Titan graphic novel set or the Learning Japanese set? Those two stood out to me in Wave 3 but I was curious if anyone had recommendations for or against?

In for High School D&D, but what's the point of having only the 2nd half of Michiko on sale?

Didn't they have the 1st half on sale as a Lightning Deal earlier this week?

Funimation posted their Black Friday and Cyber Monday Deals

 

http://www.funimation.com/blog/?p=2751

 

I don't think their titles will be cheaper than Amazon but will probably match whatever Rightstuf does.

 

The thing I'm most interested in is their 50% off a 12 month EVS which would be $47.70 with the discount.  If Crunchyroll does their usual sale on year long all access membership then I will be set for streaming for the year.

 

The Funimation sale as It just occurred to me will be pretty much non-sale whatsoever.

 

Their discounts are going to be off of the "Market Price" they have listed, which is about 2x more than the regular prices on Amazon or Rightstuf regularly, so the 50% off is not really going to account to any discount at all.

 

Personally I was confused why they kept advertising as to why they kept advertising Trigun for $6 on their Facebook page, but then I saw that every title already had a "25%" discount attached to their current prices, and the regular price of Trigun blu is $24.98 "Market Price", so it all makes sense now.  This would also explain why Funi was seemingly going to have a good deal for BF or Cyber Monday, but is now just a crappy sale like they usually have.

 

Well, it was nice to at least think Funi was going to do the right thing, and put up a decent sale, but I was wrong. :P

Also, Amazon has had the LE version of it cheaper than anywhere else since release, and even cheaper than Rightstuf has it currently on sale right now, so it's not like it'll be difficult to get part 1 for a decent price, especially the LE of it, which part 2 fits right into the LE set, so probably works out better this way.

 

http://www.amazon.co...8&condition=new

 

I think most people are just going to buy Part 1 LE anyways, once Part 2 Lightning Deal is live.

Just picked up both seasons of Clannad from Right Stuf.  Been waiting for it to go on sale, and I think this was the best price I've seen it for.

Really? Must have slept through that one. How much did it go for?

It goes for $30.96 right now, which you can see from the link above.

 

Amazon has always had it at this price since release, so it's actually a nice deal compared to other places like Rightstuf.

 

As others have mentioned they saw Part 1 as part of a lightning deal as well previously, but that was for the standard I believe, so not even the LE version.

NISA is going to have a Holiday Sale from 12/2 - 12/6.  IIRC, this hasn't been very good sale in the past, but might get lucky with a decent price on a couple of anime titles or games.  I like the deal for Arakawa Under the Bridge from TRSI, but I'd also like to pick up the Katanagatari PEs.

The sales last year were worse than the ones Rightstuf (or at least for the anime) ran during the 12+, and the only real incentive they had were the bonuses that NISA usually sends you for ordering from them, but price wise there wasn't much to look at.

I still have a copy of Times of Eve in my cart that I am about to remove if anyone here wants it.

EDIT:

I also took out my copy of Noein, for anyone who wants that as well!

When I have my cursor over High School D&D it says $ 24.49, I'm not sure if that's a good price or not.

Well, if your big collector it wouldn't be a good price (in my opinion), but if your like me thats going to get for the Dvd version and get rid of the Blue-ray version, than its not a big deal to pay $24 for it. I'll pretty much get money back when i sell it on ebay or at least part of it.

Who is actually staying up for Michiko & Hatchin Part 2? If you're on the west coast, it's not so bad but here it's at 3:20 AM. I have part 1 but didn't really stick to me that much. Thinking of passing but then another side of me wants to set the alarm so I can get it... just to see if the second part of the anime redeems itself. =|

Yeah, we were discussing it in the DD thread.

 

Apparently they raised the prices on all the pre-orders, and newer releases from the past couple of weeks prior to the code going live.

The two preorders I linked didn't go up in price, but it's the only two I refreshed that didn't. I had tabs open for days =P

 

Edit: And there goes another $131.26.

Oic.  I guess those were kind of high to begin, so might explain it.  The other pre-orders were all in the mid 20s or so.
