Aniplex is an absolute garbage company. I'm glad most of their series are as shitty as their business practices, or this hobby would cost me a lot more than it already does. I gladly fill my collection with >90% FUNi and Sentai Blu-rays. I have hundreds of titles none of which are Aniplex, and I plan to keep it that way.

 

I never watch subs anyway so that issue will never bother me.

Lol, yeah, that's a typical response I would expect in this forum.  It is quite entertaining here sometimes - Thanks!  :mrgreen:

this is "cheap ass gamer".   The vast majority of people here don't care anything about Aniplex for obvious reasons.  You were trolling.  I know you well enough to think it's not an accident when you post about Aniplex on here.  :-P

I got my first Sentai order today and the box had Rightstuf "Anime Fulfillment Center" as the sender.

 

They're pulling stock from the same warehouse.

Sentai orders have always come from Rightstuf.

Never knew that. Aside from a couple video game adaptations I really only go to buy shows around Black Friday and put in one huge order.

 

I do find it scary just how many of the shows I watched were picked up by a single company though.

I'd like to know which forums you frequent that actually worship Aniplex. AFAIK even during their own panels at conventions, they just ignore any questions asked about pricing entirely.

Forums that care about quality of the release rather than the price ( I know the specific forums he is talking about), their releases are typically better video quality wise than funi and sentai releases.

 

Regardless, this whole argument is annoying and everyone should stop

Has Funimation actually revealed whats in the Kabaneri LE? If the only difference is digipak like the Berserk LE then honestly I'd probably rather just have the standard version.

Well this was unexpected. I went to Wal*Mart tonight to net myself Gotham: Season 3, and also on the promo/BF sale cardboard racks was...

$9.96 - Sailor Moon R: The Movie

 

So that came home with me too.

Some sad news....Amazon UK is now blocking the sale of AoA titles to the US. Not sure if it's just because there's a sale for some of this stuff or if this is a new policy. Tried buying Aldnoah Zero and got blocked. However I did put in an order for a Switch and that went through even though it said it wouldn't ship to the US. I voluntarily cancelled that one though because I was concerned about not getting a warranty for it.

You weren't blocked.  Orders from Amazon go through fine.  Orders from third party retailers (even if fulfilled by Amazon) usually don't allow international shipping.

Eh, I've been holding out for the School Live premium box to go on sale. It's $60.99 now, Should I just bite the bullet? It's probably not gonna go lower than that this year right?

What do you guys think of the gundam blu-ray sets on sale at rightstuf?  I'm thinking about ordering a few, like the gundam wing set that's on sale.  I'm just trying to decide if it is worth replacing my DVD sets.  I have most of them on DVD already.

I'm slowly doing this, but I'm also a huge Gundam fan. It's my favorite anime franchise.

I think it’s worth the upgrade based on the improved picture quality alone. If anything, it’ll also take up significantly less space than the DVDs.

The problem is not all of the Gundam are on sale as they should be! This is why Rightstuff is a fail all the time to me.

I decided to bite and picked up a few.  Gundam doesn't seem to go on sale very often.  Got gundam wing part 1, zz gundam part 1 and 2.

I'm interested in some stuff from the Sentai sale, but my cart is not reflecting the Black Friday prices. The low prices show up when I search for a title, but when I get to the product page the price is higher. I thought the price would be lower once I started the checkout process, but it's not. Definitely frustrating.

Make sure you’re logged into your account before going to your cart. I had that issue until I had logged in.

Also make sure that you're getting the version you want (DVD/Bluray).
