Have you not seen the original Riding Bean anime? Rally was blonde before Gunsmith Cats ever came along.

That is the Riding Bean/Bean Bandit version of Rally Vincent.

I don't remember all the details, but Sonoda made GSC after leaving the studio where RB was made. So when he created the series, he needed to make some changes to the characters so they weren't exactly the same.

I haven't actually seen Riding Bean (been meaning to for a long time), but I'm a big fan of Gunsmith Cats. I guess if anything I should be upset that she was so different there..

In any case, I'll be backing this.

A lot of good prices and quality titles in the RS DVD sale.

 

I noticed you could pick up all 4 seasons of Hidamari Sketch for $50, but you can't get the final two episodes for the graduation arc. Apparently they were never released in NA :(

I need a manga store that I can buy new releases at the best price. It seems like Amazon stopped pulling cheap pre-order price for manga, not sure why, so I need a new place to shop. Any suggestion?

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.

Maybe your local comic book store will make a deal if manga qualifies for a subscription service?

 

I personally stick with Rightstuf since it's an easy way to reach $50 and get free shipping if I order DVD's and Blu Ray's (they do pre-orders too). And since I read Case Closed, I never have to worry about finding something.

Man, the princess principal premium box is $117 and that's supposedly after discounts. I don't know, sentai LE's rarely sell out so I guess I'll hold off on it.

There's an extra $10 off code ("iSPY") if you buy it direct from Sentai.

*fistbump*

There's quite a few older/obscure titles on sale that I've had my eye on for a while. I'll round out with some Case Closed or Promised Neverland if I need to.

Any standouts in the sale for things that are only available on DVD?

The following are DVD only (at least in NA):

 

Recommended:

Azumanga Daioh - $12.50 ($8 in Sentai sale) (Enjoyable and funny high school sol. I rewatch every so often. Previous lowest price during last holiday Sentai sale was like $16.)

Ai Yori Aoshi - $20 (A bit sappy. Enjoyable if you like this genre. I've rewatched a few times. Good price but pretty sure has been this low before)

Red Data Girl - $12.50 (Worth a watch if you enjoy spiritual stories. Available on BR in Australia, but only DVD in NA)

 

Decent:

Someday's Dreamers and Someday's Dreamers II - $12.50 ea ($8 ea in Sentai Sale) (Worth a watch but not necessarily worth a buy)

El Cazador de la Bruja - $12.50 (Nothing special, but good price)

Suzuka - $10 (An ok watch if you like high school drama. I've never rewatched it)

 

There are many other good series with good prices in the sale, but they have BR versions available.

Been over a year that I've bought me some anime and with this sentai sale I think I may spend over $200 to complete some collections.I feel like a little kid in a candy store adding titles to my cart.

Edit: Any thoughts on Ushio and Tora complete collection and Cross Ange complete collection?

Black Cat - You could do worse.
 
Blassreiter - Garbage, absolutely terrible.
 
Tokyo Majin - Own it, but have yet to watch it.
 
Utawarerumono - Excellent!

The sale at Sentai seems pretty cheap. Some of new ones are hitting $20. I’ll keep checking.

Space Brothers: $8.99 each! You’re all mine!!

El Cazador de la Bruja is definitely enjoyable - but the thing is, if I hadn't watched that before watching Noir, there's a good chance I wouldn't have liked it as much. No spoilers, but the plot of El Cazador bites a fair bit off of Noir.

It still feels distinctly different though, to be sure. Cazador is noticeably more lighthearted for one.

Some titles I recommend from the RightStuf DVD sale:

 

$2.50 - Patlabor Movie 3 WXIII DVD
Great stand alone movie that doesn't require knowing much, if anythhing, about the Patlabor franchise.

$2.50 - Agent Aika DVD Anime Legends
Action packed and heavily laden with fan service.

$5.00 - New Dominion Tank Police DVD
Sadly it's the sub-titled only version, but the dub release from fifteen years ago is scarce.

$5.00 - AD Police Files DVD
$5.00 - Bubblegum Crash DVD
$5.00 - Parasite Dolls DVD
These three titles are all part of the Bubblegum Crisis franchise. Must haves for any fan of said franchise.

$5.00 - Toward the Terra Movie Remastered DVD
Japanese sci-fi spin on Peter Pan.

$5.00 - Darkside Blues DVD
Dark, ecchi, with very mature themes, and very much a classic.

$7.50 - Mezzo DVD (TV Series)
Action packed, fun to watch direct sequel to the OVA Mezzo Forte.

There's a lot of good stuff in that Sentai Sale. I had to pare down my original cart, but there were a few things I couldn't pass up. I ordered Space Brothers 1-8, When They Cry Season 3, and Squid Girl (regular edition).

Here's three (likely) less common suggestions if people are looking for stuff to add, put in a spoiler due to size:
