Should I blind buy Hyouka? I've been meaning to watch it.


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.

I did, based on all the good things I've heard.

Code geass I got the complete series limited for $21.99

psycho pass and overlord were $25.99 when I got them may of last year (so yes cheaper now)

the rest I don't know, but I guess I should actually get motivated and go through some stuff as some of those are indeed good prices lol.

pulling from reddit

Attack on Titan Complete Season 1 - $25 ($22 at Best Buy a couple months ago, though)

Shimoneta - $20 (definitely a low)

Prison School - $20

Death Parade - $20

Overlord Season 1 - $20

Blood Blockade Battlefront - $20

Assassination Classroom Season 1 Part 1 - $20 (definitely a low)

Assassination Classroom Season 1 Part 2 - $20 (definitely a low)

Noragami Season 1 - $20

Code Geass $20 per season

Pyscho Pass season one $20

Almost all the limited editions are apparently at all time lows.

and most of the shows that were $29.99 in the last sale are apparently $27.99.

 

Death Parade and Blood Blockade are tempting.

A few of the series like Nichijou, Wolf’s Rain, and Lodoss are at their Xmas prices from a few months back. Just need Lodoss but I can wait for it to drop to around $30-35.

I wasn’t a huge fan of it but that was a total steal, so I had to. Lol.

They have Lucky Star Blu-Ray + DVD for $30. Is it worth a Blu-Ray upgrade if you already have the DVD set? Is it an upscale or was it shot in HD?

Based on research I’ve done, it’s an upscale that looks quite bad. Somewhere I found the screenshots from FUNi’s release versus the Japanese release and the FUNi upscale, while featuring better-looking subs which is standard for Blu vs DVD, the PQ is barely better than the DVDs. I personally kept my Lucky Star Bandai box set and DVDs and resisted on upgrading despite price drops. The Anime Limited version looked no better.

I love Lucky Star and wouldn't have minded double dipping (already have the Bandai set, and I think some of the individual DVD releases), but I don't need to pay for minimal gains. Guess I'll pick up the BR set if it drops to $20 someday.

 

Thanks for the info!

One of my local flea markets has the Gundam Wing Boxset with the chipboard box for like $60. Thing is i own the whole series sans the chip box and just want the Chip box for my series. Kinda tempted to buy it and trade the series in at a local Disc Replay or something.

Easily the best anime deal of 2017. It'll be difficult for 2018 to top that.

I forgot that Code Geass was only $22. Plus the replacement discs from Funi meant an extra (albeit in Mono) copy of S2. It was the second best deal I've gotten on anime from Amazon.

Number 1, Lest we forget

If only I wasn’t a stickler about the Code Geass art used for the CE box, I would have been all over that price error last year with you all. Can’t believe Amazon actually packed it well in bubble wrap.

Forgot about how long everyone had to wait for FotNS to ship. The SD BD release made me forget they had a complete seekers release with a whole ton of DVDs crammed into a case.

I don't remember I just know it randomly shipped one day

so apparently you can get 2 months of hidive for free (even if you are already subbed)
 
the anime boston promo is still live you just have to sign up for it and have them send you a code https://www.reddit.c...ve_sweepstakes/
 
and there is a multiuse code animeeyedgirl that also gets you a month.
 
just did it myself and each of those got me $4.32 of credit on my account lol. (so a total of $8.64)

FUNi sale going on at Rightstuf.

 

Anything better than previous sale prices? I'm looking at Record of Lodoss War. Forget how much it was back in December, but IIRC, was it something like $45? Same for the Fruits Basket box. If anything, I can definitely wait for the holiday season since they could possibly go even lower.

The original 13 eps were good. Interesting premise and well executed story.

 

I haven't seen the final 4 eps that aired recently. They supposedly cover the conclusion of the manga and include more drama than the tv series.

I thought overall it was pretty good. I enjoyed it.

I’ll be the one to oppose recommending ReLife. While the concept of an adult going back to high school to remedy his social problems is an interesting idea, the story is bland with no twists and a predictable romance. The animation looks lazy and the characters are forgettable once the series is over. I’ve watched the series plus the last four OVAs. Thought the OVAs would redeem the series but all it did was confirm how generic the whole show was.

I guess I'll parrot what the others have said and say it was enjoyable. It's not the "best ever", but I wouldn't avoid it. If you're looking for a show like that, I would watch it.

It's good, but I would recommend just reading the manga. 

it's full color and like anime stills anyways, and covers stuff the anime doesn't.

 

I haven't watched the last 4 eps... but there is no way they covered everything in the last 100 chapters (the same amount of content the first series covered)
