Eh, the alternative is the anime makes up an ending, and that rarely ends well either.

eh not always. as someone that rarely reads the manga, if ever. animes can often have good endings, but i do agree plenty of times an anime has terrible cliff hangers.

 

and like the other guy said, i enjoyed where fruits basket ended. funny side note....my friend got me that as a gag birthday gift, because we both were expecting a sappy rom-com slice of anime....so we sat down fully expecting to embrace some horrible crappy gag gift and to laugh at it....and ended up loving the damn show and being shocked by what it was actually about.

I agree.  It's a shame how the people that support the industry are the ones constantly getting screwed.  Between paying 2-4x as much series volumes, or publishers not following suit on subsequent packaging for the series, it's a pain the ass being an early adopter. 

though thats hardly unique to this industry. day 1 folks are always the beta testers who pay more, no matter the industry or product. its just the way it is. new consoles for example always cost more at first then eventually they figure out to make a cheaper better slim version.

Oh, I also recommend Kamisama Dolls. It'll probably never get the second season it deserves, but I loved that show. Can also watch it on Crunchyroll.

i second this. its a fun show and sadly ends right at the good part though if i had to pick terrible endings that end right at the good part, im not anything will ever top corpse princess. the only real complaint i have is the stupid oversized boob girl. seriously japan....HH sized boobs are not funny and its not even like shes a joke character. and no this isnt a spoiler you see her in the first episode within minutes.

 

to piggypack onto other conversations....yes i too want a third season of GitS....hilariously enough years ago i had a dream where i was watching season 3 of the show and i loved it....i got to like episode 3 before i realized it was a dream and was like fucking damnit and woke up having to pee. i dont remember the plot anymore....other than i loved it.

 

but yeah....solid state society is technically season 3. i hope it finally gets a true season 3 though and i want to pick up off of solid state society. this is one of those shows that i never understood how it got cancelled. and call me crazy but i enjoyed season 2 a little more than season 1. i enjoyed the character development that progressed and carried over into season 2. the tachikomas especially have the best character development ever. the tachikomas are easily the best robots in fiction without question. heres hoping the live action movie is good and we finally get a true season 3. as its still in my top 5 shows ever after all this time.

 

i even have some of the impossible to find blue plush tachikomas....the yellows can be found but not the blues for some unknown reason.

 

and i second the good thoughts on from the new world....its an amazing show.

Any suggestions on a good all region blu-ray player? I've been looking for one.

the most cost effective ones are the old best buy insignia ones. though you have to update them to specific firmwares only as future updates remove the code that unlocks region free abilities.

 

but if you want a legit no codes, smart region free blu ray player....let someone else answer that as i have no idea.


In Topic: Rightstuf 2016 Holiday Sale Thread - Archive

Most of the posts were in the Anime Deals thread, so this is really just an archive thread, which was pretty much as intended.

 

But yeah, the sales were so shitty, and boring this year, even if the conversation was here, it would've just been talking about how bad it was, like what happened in the Anime Deals thread, lol.

 

So maybe a little bit of happy, and mostly sad, as that pretty much explained the sale this year. :P

 

Sentai was the surprise this year.

 

Funi sales since a couple years back has been so-so since then.  Certainly that first year Funi decided to push out their own store sale was just awesome.  I bought a ton then.  Just been a steady decline since then, but still, not awful.

 

Hoping Sentai will not follow suit with the Funi pattern of decreasingly bad sales.

even still i found crap to spend money on....but probably because i don't buy from them all year round in ridiculous amounts like some people....
