I need an opinion for K-On (movie not included for bundle)

K-On is good if you like school slice-of-life. You should enjoy it if you are a fan of Lucky Star or A-Channel. They don't focus too heavily on music like I suspect a show like Love Live does (which I haven't seen for that reason... I prefer the focus to be sol).

 

If you enjoy the series, the movie is a fun watch as well. It's simply a graduation trip they take following the end of the second season.

When they cry is a crazy good deal. I broke my "no dub, no buy" rule with S2 of this show, because it is so good.

 

I paid more money for everything that I have in that sale...

Anyone receive an email from Sentai with an exclusive bundles? Because they are very tempting right now. Both seasons of Snafu is only $25. That's a steal in my book. Grabbing that and entire set of When They Cry, which is only $55 for all 3.

 

That being said I need an opinion for K-On (movie not included for bundle) and Kokoro Connect. Are they good and worth the buy?

I already have the first part of Snafu...guess I'll end up with two of them. Anyone know what I can do with the double?


you are a pillar of the video game/gaming community.  

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

 

It's because of pillars like you, I remain in this community.  Thank you!

 

Spoken like a true pillar. The community sends its many thanks.

 

How dare you speak to the pillar of our community that way. If he says you're a closet vita fan he knows what he's talking about.

Here's the entire Sentai 70% sale going on in alphabetical order. Use it to compare with previous, future sales, etc. Titles that have two prices; one is Blu-ray and other is DVD (basically the higher price is the Blu-ray).

Is there shipping still stupidly overpriced with the "amazing" offer of free shipping with purchase of $70?

Wait, is Snafu available at $25 for both seasons or per season? I only see S1 at $26.99 and S2 at $30.99.

Ah that explains it ;_;

Both seasons for $25 would be a steal. Such a great anime. I wish it got a 3rd season.

Here's the link to the Back to School Bundle sale:
https://shop.sentaif...ol-bundles-2017

 

There are two bundle prices $25 & $55 (I added the current sale price for price comparison).

Free Shipping on any orders over $50 (varies depending on your location).
The sets cannot be mixed and matched (ex: S1 of Anime A + S2 of Anime B).
The set formats can be mixed however (ex: S1 Blu-ray + S2 DVD).
You can buy multiple sets in one order (to save on shipping).
If a title doesn't have the blu-ray or DVD, it's probably out of stock or sold out.

You need an account to see the discount.

If the discount is not applying, check your Adblockers.

Signing up did make the bundle prices show, thanks! Unfortunately for me, I was going to get Snafu and Non Non Biyori BR sets, but they're oos on one of the NNB blu-rays and I don't want to pay for shipping on just Snafu.

 

K-On complete for $55 is a great deal. I spent way more than that when I got them. I think it was like $20 for ea of the four Bandai S1 BR releases + $26 for ea of the two Sentai S2 BR releases + $16 for BR movie = $148.

That remind me. How is Non Non? I only know it by emoji use somewhere. I heard it's good. As for Snafu, well they did announce the finale for the light novel, so perhaps third season will happen eventually. I haven't seen them, but I heard it's pretty good and did some research, so I look forward to them when it arrives.

When you know the Sentai Sale is an incredibly good deal but you're still hesitating. This is likely going to be better than Right Stuf's Holiday Sales. probably

I did like the manga sale side from Rightstuf last month, I'll give them that. I'm still hoping for Space Brothers $10 sale. I have zero idea on why I hesitated...

Very good school slice-of-life and an easy recommendation for fans of the genre. It's set in the country rather than an urban city, which gives it a fresh feel compared to traditional school sol.

That would be amazing. I love the interactions among the characters (Hachiman is a great antihero) and want to see how it ends.

Great to hear. Hoping for restock. Almost got everything I want from Sentai. From there, I'll be doing the waiting game for newer releases.

I finally decided to pick up the Beyond the Boundary LE from the Sentai Sale, as it has a Low Stock Notice on it now - only 8 remaining when I ordered mine.  Hopefully there was actually any sets left, as I wonder how often that counter gets updated, because it still says 8 left after my order. 

 

Edit: well, it's down to 3 remaining sets this morning, so I guess I should be good...

I remember seeing the trailer from my Nozaki-kun Blu-ray. It looked gorgeous; just don't know how is the anime. I should try to check it out one day.

Nozaki is hilarious, though it helps if you're somewhat familiar with shoujo tropes

I saw it already and I really enjoyed it. I was referring to Beyond the Boundary. They show a trailer of that before you can watch Nozaki. It looked gorgeous; just don't know how is it. I should have known it's Kyoto Animation.

Sentai just tweeted earlier today that the Beyond The Boundary Premium Box set is now officially OOP as of yesterday. The standard release is still available. They also tweeted that the Monster Musume PE Box set is almost OOP as well, it has a Low Stock Notice on its product page now.

Speaking of Sentai, anyone received an email about their complete set series for Clannad and Higurashi? I guess that's why they did the sale?
