The books I got from them have been fine. They were sent in those book folds though. So the chances of them getting damaged is probably about as high as Amazon's.

Thanks. Think I'm just going to keep my Amazon order since they're easier to deal with if the book comes damaged.

Will be very curious to see what transpires in the coming months with Funimation releases. Will there be some manner of clearance purge like in the past? Will they fizzle out quietly? It will be most intriguing to keep an eye on for certain.

I'm guessing they will keep the Funimation brand for distributing physical media. All the newly announced CR stuff will probably ultimately roll onto the Funimation brand. There's no value (IMO) to using the CR name for physical media distribution. CR will be the digital platform for sure. Too bad their new site is hot trash.

A wild Sentai sale appears: https://www.sentaifi...ucky-lucky-sale

 

Some good prices in there. I'm tempted on Ascendance of a Bookworm S1+2 for $35, but I want to hold out for the complete series (S3 starts airing in April). They finally got the final two eps of Hidamari Sketch (graduation arc), and that's on sale for $14. Rest of the series (they call it "Picture Perfect Collection" but it doesn't include the final two eps) is on sale for $35.

Are these the best prices yet for most titles? See a pretty wide selection at $5.

btw best buy also has steelbook on sale. Most notably:

Darling in the franxx s1 - $30
Goblin slayer s1 - $26
Reincarnated as a slime S1 - $26

If you also got the targeted $10 offer, it's a pretty good deal on these I think

The expensive 4K collector's box of Akira just went on sale for an all-time low of $36.37.  It previously launched around $60-$80.

I can’t bring myself to pull the trigger yet. I love the movie, and that price point is much better than it has been l, but is it really worth the upgrade from the Blu-ray?

I haven't bought manga in a long-ass time apart from keeping up with the Jojo hardcovers, but I'm looking to buy all of Dorohedoro. Anyone know what would be the best way to go about that? Like, do any stores have semi-regular sales that would work for it?

Right Stuf's birthday sale is coming up in 8 days so I would wait and see if Dorohedoro ends up being a part of it since a majority of the sale is usually Viz releases. If not that's still going to be your cheapest place to get it. All of the volumes have been reprinted recently and that's where I got most of my set and where I get 90% of my manga in general.

Ah, okay. I usually get all my comix from Instocktrades, but they have Zero volumes available right now for some reason. Thanks for the heads up on Rightstuf, Barnes and Noble used to have b2g1 sales fairly regularly but I have no idea if they do that anymore.

Barnes & Noble has only had 1 B2G1 free sale in the last year or so that included manga (usually they don't include it since manga is their only "genre" that is selling well) and it was only hardcovers. I grabbed like 30 or so manga hardcovers during that sale. 

 

I just did a check on Right Stuf and they have like 90% of the volumes in stock at the moment. They are also no tax and free shipping at $75 or higher.

Right Stuf's birthday sale starts in about 30 minutes and lasts a few weeks with daily deals and new stuff added every week.
