Board games are always my jam at yard/garage sales.

I don't usually find much.  Game finds have dried up and I almost never see anime in my area.  I've been looking for old computers to fix up and resell.

I did find an old timey scythe for $5 that I just had to buy.

Cool! Bought a mining pick earlier this year at one. Something about those ancient tools of hard labor carries a very alluring vibe.

 

I somewhat religiously yard sale virtually every Saturday morning. Anime, and manga for that matter, are rarities for me to find at a yard sale. Only anime I've run across at one this year was one of the old DBZ big box DVD sets, which I bought for $1. Video games aren't technically rare to find at yard sales in my area, what does make them a hard find is encountering such a yard sale before one of the area video game dealers finds that yard sale first. There are at least three reseller/dealers who regularly are out yard sale'ing on the hunt for anything video gaming related to snatch up and resell online, they've made it very difficult to find anything good.

 

Computers do turn up at yard sales, but with less frequency than in the past because the commoners have bought into the media hype concerning data theft to the point they'd rather blast away their old computers as target practice fodder or hand them over to Best Buy for destructive Recycling than to take a risk reselling it to someone who could potentially get some usage out of it, rather sad and wasteful.

 

About seventeen or eighteen years back I went to a moving sale and the couple moving had absolutely dozens and dozens of anime VHS tapes for sale. I bought three of them for $5; Black Magic M-66 being the only one of them I can still recall the title thereof. I watched them on my Commodore 1501 monitor using a physically damaged RCA VHS camcorder (also bought from a yard sale dirt cheap) that the camera no longer was operable on, but worked fine as a cheap VHS player. Loaned them to a couple of friends, whom also got to watch them, and then I mailed them off as a donation to the library of University of Minnesota's "Manga Anime Society"  for which I was a member of the forum thereof on the internet. They kept promoting they were taking donations and they had maintained a free library as it were that club members could borrow tapes from at no charge. I remember being more than a bit irritated though because a few months later when that school year ended their club underwent leadership changes and they completely did away with their online forums! I felt kinda bad about it because prior to that point the club was literally open to anyone by way of the internet, not exclusive to just students and persons local to the University of Minnesota. But that was my first experience finding anime at a yard sale. Second time I found a anime at a yard sale was the following year (maybe 2000?) the VHS of Princess Mononoke, which I kept for quite a long time and loaded out many times.

I think I'll do that.  Know any good streaming options for the dub?  It is on crunchyroll, but I prefer watching in english.

Sorry, I don't. I have it on DVD myself. Might have to watch it subbed if that's all they have. I've only watched it that way though, so I can't comment on the quality of the dub.

I personally enjoyed it. More about learning to live in a Game World while dealing with the economy and politics (guild and country).  

 

It has an awesome OP.

It's an enjoyable show, but kind of ends with lots of loose ends and it isn't likely to get any further follow up unfortunately. So I guess buy it if you want to support the potential for more season and don't mind it not having an ending.

Is Himouto! Umaru-chan any good? Also that price for the Uta OVAs are great, but I'm guessing there's a minimum for free shipping that's not easily attainable.



#19637 Tweeg  

Posted 24 October 2017 - 02:01 AM

Free shipping on orders totaling over $75.00. Not sure what they charge for shipping on orders below that to be perfectly honest, kinda depends on whether or not they use USPS Media Mail.

Hot garbage! It's the poor man's SAO (which itself isn't that good). Take being stuck in a video game and subtract any sense of urgency about trying to leave add bland characters, an even blander story. And Bad artwork.

TLDR
Your waifu is Shit

i find that a bit harsh. i easily find s1 of LH better than any VRish anime atm. except for maybe Overlord. while S2 does look worse its got its decent parts. though i would tell most people only 1 season of it exists lol.

I don't think anything can be a poor man's SAO since SAO is as poor as anything can get. 

 

If there's no implied rape or incest that alone would make it better.


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.

Though I wasn't a fan of SAO (the Gun Gale arc was decent), I did enjoy it more than Log Horizon. I watched the first 8 episodes of Log Horizon, but was just too bored with it to continue.

I'd say that a poor man's SAO is a copy of Super Mario Brothers and an inappropriate sister.

Lol, I'd probably give Log Horizon a 6.5/10. My biggest gripe was also that sense of urgency. They eventually somewhat start to address it towards the end of the show, but then we don't get a proper ending so who knows. I think if you can get it for a good price, it's entertaining to watch, but your analogy is fairly accurate.

Haven't even heard of those. Will have to look into it.
I'm shocked "problem children are coming from another world" didn't get a second season. It had good characters, without being too cliche, and the bunny girl was really popular for a bit.

None of the ones I listed don't have an anime yet. Only Death March and Tate no Yuusha are getting an adaptation in 2018.
