I'm really late replying but I hope still useful! I looked at the series you mentioned your giftee liking and used my knowledge of anime to go on Amazon and pick out 10 other series or movies they might also like, along with why I think these might be a good option. Your person seems to really like edgy and highly dramatic pieces with a scifi or fantasy flair. That's been my favorite for 15 years! A lot of these are a bit older; I am taking the gamble that with as many newer pieces listed, your person hasn't watched a lot of backlog, and therefore may have missed some really good shit.

Ghost in the Shell is a cyberpunk classic. Older, yes, but for anyone who likes drama and scifi, this is a good choice. It focuses on a classic mind experiment: if you can move your brain freely among cybernetic parts and bodies, what is really "you"?

Steins;Gate is what instantly springs to mind for someone who also likes Psycho Pass. And I mean instantly. Fans of one almost invariably love the other. A tightly-plotted time travel thriller.

Revolutionary Girl Utena is a bit older, often controversial, and an absolute work of art. There's a strong chance your giftee is a girl based on the other series they like, but even if not, Utena is still a solid choice. Just be careful on this; sending it to a conservative person could backfire badly. I rather doubt that is the case with Attack on Titan and Shiki, but just to be safe. It's strange and beautiful...and stylish beyond all doubt.

Black Lagoon is anime's answer to a Hollywood big budget action movie. Comedic, violent, and unforgettable, it deserves a far wider audience than it's had. Almost every anime fan I know who's seen it has loved it.

Akira is without a doubt one of the most famous anime movies to ever be created. Animated without CG in the 1980s, the quality of its hand-drawn special effects has yet to be equalled by almost any other production to this day. For someone used to today's slick computer assisted animation, it's still mindblowing. Akira is often credited with being just as important as Pokemon and Dragon Ball Z and Sailor Moon in starting the anime boom of the 1990s, and this is a very nice edition.

Also in the classic scifi category we have Serial Experiments Lain, a show whose points on technology and the internet and the singularity still ring true today. Moody and thought-provoking with masterful use of color and a fantastic soundtrack.

Literally no adult-targeted anime is as famous and well-beloved as Cowboy Bebop. This space western with the jazz soundtrack is a perennial favorite on Cartoon Network Adult Swim, is often suspected as a major influence behind Firefly, and is one of the most popular anime in the US of all time... And it's hitting bluray this month.

Summer Wars should probably come with a bluray device as a tech test. It's that beautiful. A tale of virtual reality and the family and friends behind the characters, Summer Wars is an unforgettable movie which, despite being intensely Japanese, deserves a slot on any videophile's shelf.

My total wildcard pick is Mushishi. Beautiful and dream-like, like a series of 25 minute oases from ordinary life. If this is in fact a slice of life, these timeless Japanese almost fairy tales are like no life you've seen. Some call it slow and overhyped. I call it perfection. At any rate, this isn't at all what I'd get as an only gift; it's more a wildcard filler for a $20 other series. If you want my actual top pick.....

Baccano! is my final and top pick. It's really hard to go wrong with this. This rollicking action anime about immortal Prohibition-era Mafiosi in the United States is one of the best and most underrated anime of all time. Humor, violent action, mystery, drama, good characters, good animation, good music... It has them all. It's chronically overshadowed by its more popular sister series Durarara, and that makes me sad. But Durarara isn't easily available outside streaming, and this glorious madcap piece of anime is. Plus it has at least one theme in common with everything your person listed liking. You know what to do.

Additionally, here's an afterword from the first novel by the author:

> Since I began entering writing contests with prize money involved, I've never been able to stop thinking about winning the grand prize.
Then, I think about using the prize money to buy stocks, increasing my investment, and pretty soon I'm daydreaming about ruling the world with my vast wealth.

> Lately I've made enough money that I can order an extra-large bowl of soba from the soba stand without worrying about it.

> My name is Isuna Hasekura.

> Recently winning the silver medal of the 12th Dengeki Shosetsu Prize is an honor roughly equivalent to winning the moon in the sky. I couldn't believe it. I had three different dreams in which I got a phone call that they'd mixed me up with somebody else.

> When I started editing the manuscript, I had two dreams that I'd missed the deadline.

> I have no idea how many times I dreamed that I was wealthy enough to rule the world.

> In fact, as I write this afterword, I'm wondering even now whether this is a dream or reality.

> To the pre-readers, editors, and prize selection committee members that opened the door to this world of dreams, I give my most humble thanks. Also to the people at the prize-acceptance party who raised their voices in support; and most especially to Mitsutaka Yuki-sensei, who gave me a silver wolf accessory in connection with the Spice and Wolf title, I want to say thank you so much. The little silver wolf is even now enshrined by my computer.

> I must also thank Ju Asakura-sensei for the gorgeous illustrations. They captured my characters perfectly. I hope my thanks are as great as my surprise at seeing them.

> To all the people, things, and events responsible for putting me in the position I'm in today: Thank you so much.

> It is my intention to put forth every effort to ensure that I never wake from this fleeting dream.

> —Isuna Hasekura

Enjoy what I've done so far? I'm only here because I like the series so much. Go support the creator!

u/Verzwei · 17 pointsr/anime

That's just how it is. Believe it or not, Funimation's prices are actually pretty decent. Sentai is similarly priced.

If you really want to shit your pants, go look at Aniplex USA or Ponycan USA releases. Kill La Kill BD Volume 1. Release date: July 15, 2014. Episodes 1-4. ONE THROUGH FUCKING FOUR. $40.00 USD. "Oh that's just the MSRP direct from the walletfuckers, it'll be cheaper from other retailers." Nope and [Amazon link unavailable because Amazon doesn't even carry it].

You paid $30 for Steins;Gate because you bought it when they released the whole thing branded as an anime classic. I know this, because that's when I bought it. That was a rerelease. The original was offered as two split cours that came out a few months apart and each had prices higher than the classic bundle.

This is what Funimation and Sentai do, with few exceptions:

  1. Series will release in 12-13 episode "chunks" (what typically constitutes a season, or what we refer to as a "cour") at about a $60.00 MSRP but then after discounts, promotions, and retailer price adjustments, it drops down to the $40-46 range. Fun fact: Even most publishers rarely charge their full MSRP directly from their own store, because it's a customer-baiting mechanic to list a higher price and then make it look like you're offering a discount, even if that discount is permanent.
  2. Then, once the initial sell-through dies off, if the series was popular enough (or not) it will get heavily discounted in a variety of ways depending on the publisher. Funimation has two different tactics, one of them is the "Anime Classics" label, like that above-linked Steins;Gate or the Spice & Wolf pack. The other option is the "Super Amazing Value Edition" which is a rerelease covered in god-awful "SAVE" branding and, typically, a $20.00 or less price point. Robotics;Notes initially had two separate cour releases, then a SAVE version came out literally years later. Thankfully, all of the SAVE editions have reversible case covers, so you can at least hide that ugly green-striped packaging.

    Sentai doesn't really do rereleases, instead they just regularly (but only temporarily) slash the prices of a lot of their old stock. They have a decent sale going on now, but a few months back they had drastically cut down the prices on a lot of their content, with some subtitle-only releases going for $15 per season (on BD!) and dubbed releases for $18.
u/Coppster · 2 pointsr/anime

Amazon has a Blu-Ray/DVD combo set for $26 here. Even if you don't have a blu-ray player it's a good buy, you can still watch it with the dvds and if you ever pick up a blu-ray player you can play those discs for better quality.

Rightstuf is pretty awesome as well. They change their weekly sales every Thursday so I usually keep an eye on it and sometimes they have pretty good deals. Otherwise I just usually go amazon.

u/junktr0n · 1 pointr/anime

Well this year in anime has had some surprises and disappointments. This was my first year of watching seasonal anime (winter 2015). The anime that had the most impact on me and made into my top 10 was the 2nd season of JJBA: SDC. My friend got me into it and I was skeptical at first but I ended up loving.

In general this year I became more enriched in anime and I've watched more anime this year than other form of entertainment in my life. I don't what I would be doing without anime if I hadn't discovered it (probably just still playing video games) but I wouldn't have had the influence of anime today. I've been learning Japanese since my 2nd year of high school (because it's offered there) so it has also greatly influenced my intake of anime.

As for what I would want I would like either Steins; Gate Blu-ray, Cowboy Bebop Blu-ray, or basically any quality wall scrolls for the Fate Series or Kara no Kyoukai Series like this, this, or [this.]

Also thank you for doing this.

u/AndyError · 8 pointsr/anime

Steins;Gate! It's my favorite anime and it's one of the best. Currently $30 on amazon.

Hmm, it appears to be sold out atm though... Also sold out on rightstuf... And sold out at Best Buy... Wow.

u/bigfoot1291 · 1 pointr/anime

>The amount of upvotes on a reply will be taken into consideration when choosing the top 3

>Please don't downvote other people's comments

toppest kek

Anyways, I choose Steins;Gate complete series simply because it's my top series.

Anime to me this year has meant a lot of disappointment more than anything. I was super hyped for both Charlotte and UBW, and both were a pretty big letdown. On the other hand though I definitely did have some pretty big surprises with a hopeful future, in a lot of announcements including Steins;Gate sequel and Rewrite (although I gotta keep my expectations in check)

EDIT: Oh man how could I forget Aldnoah.Zero season 2 in my slew of disappointment? That was right up there as well.

u/-Niernen · 7 pointsr/anime

Most of the Amazon sales I have seen have been pretty good, like the one for Steins;Gate. Specials really depend on the set, sometimes they have OVA's and things like music.

> How's the quality compared to just downloaded

Well you are actually supporting the industry when buying BD vs. illegally downloading so there is that... Not to mention that Bray rips are based of the BD....

Rats, if you're convinced you'll love it, the Blu Ray/DVD set is pretty cheap. I own it myself and it's definitely worth 30 USD to me.

u/zapper984 · 2 pointsr/anime I don't like the English covers but w/e I love the story and its the best translation

u/LordSirChipmunk · 7 pointsr/anime

Really? There is a lot of discussion of anime like Lupin III even in the West. From a historical standpoint, anime like Star of the Giant are still significant today due to various animation techniques used, although not knowing it really isn't that surprising outside of Japan. I believe that Sazae-san was the longest running television show worldwide, so that's pretty interesting. Besides knowledge of anime history and some early revolutionary animating techniques, there isn't that much of a reason to watch very many of these shows anymore. If you're interested in learning more, I highly recommend reading this book

u/heimdal77 · 1 pointr/anime

So I might be miss reading it but with the contents listed on the amazon jp link people are posting it seems like it says it comes with unreleased short.

Contents of the disc contents recorded on this disc (BD / DVD common)
Main story 12 story
image benefits: Unrecorded short animation, first half abstract" journey ", WEB notice etc.
Voice benefits:

u/Chariotwheel · 28 pointsr/anime

If you can stand dry writing, check out Jonathan Clements' Anime - A History. It was a slog to get through for me, but it has many interesting topics since it covers the whole time span from the beginning of anime.

To understand anime, you also need to understand manga and possibly video games, since a lot of tropes very developed and spread there before hitting anime. Sadly I only can recommend you a german book for that. Miriam Brunner's Manga is pretty neat.

You should also always look for more sources, there are actually quite some books about the topic of manga and anime.

u/Parad0xgL · 1 pointr/anime

It's not really something "unique", but the Limited Edition Blu Ray Box for Your Name is absolutely amazing. Might be a good buy

u/_vogonpoetry_ · 5 pointsr/anime

I was pretty hyped for it since I read the book beforehand. The best is yet to come :)

Now go back and watch the first minute and a half of Bakemonogatari episode 1 and prepare to have your mind blown.

u/oshare_banchou · 1 pointr/anime

>You end up needlessly worrying people who have the Region B version.

Not my intention, but UK shoppers should be wary too if buying from eBay. I made this primarily for US shoppers because the bootlegs are on the US eBay and they are bootlegs of the Region A sets (the Region B sets have different logos).

>about what Region you were talking about...

Basically I'm saying the bootlegs can't be UK versions, as not to confuse anyone. They are US bootlegs. The disc covers the bootlegs use may be from the UK version though, now that you mention it.

>Also on the topic of not being able to play a UK version in the US, you can.

I'm more concerned about people using a regular region-locked Blu Ray player or US PS3/4/Xbone. If anyone has the know-how on using multi-region Blu Rays and can then I'm sure they would import their Region B sets (which are cheaper than the Region A for Madoka Magica) and use them rather than buy Region A bootlegs. But perhaps this information can be useful to people who do have that capability but don't use it. The Region B for Madoka Magica is the complete series for £23.17, that's about $37.01 USD for the whole series (much, much, much more reasonable).

Edit: formatting

u/iboone · 1 pointr/anime

One of the hands down best deals for a ^(good) dubbed series is Black Lagoon. Two seasons for $25

As far as where to shop, check out rightstuf and this list and I'd recommend always getting bluray when possible. They will often come with both formats anyways. So might as well get it.

u/postblitz · 8 pointsr/anime

here's a cheaper variant or you could move to england. in my opinion it's worth shelling out the money for a series you consider a masterpiece.

before you go wild pirating stuff.. check out Daisuki and Crunchyroll. both have (some)free, legal, hq streaming options. Daisuki i know for sure to have Madoka in full+free and they're 100% legit japanese distributors that work directly with producers.

u/CoffeeRoast · 1 pointr/anime

They do have them up for pre-order, but the collector's edition is currently sold out. Note that the release date is August 4th instead of July 26th.

Your Name Collector's Edition

They do have the regular special edition up for pre-order, however.

Your Name Special Edition

u/SamisSimas · 1 pointr/anime

Any reasoning to this selection, because honestly I think we could recommend something better than these, if there isn't a specific reason to this selection.

Summer Wars

Garden of Words


Obsucre-er? (Though maybe not as great)

Patema Inverted

Children Who Chase Lost Voices

Ergo Proxy

u/AbundantToaster · 2 pointsr/anime

In general, RightStuf has some nice deals, or you could try Amazon.

More specifically, here's Bebop for $30. Can't find Blu-Rays of Gankutsuou, but here's a DVD set. Summer Wars is here. Try this for Black Lagoon, but there's also a collector's edition here. Evangelion 2.22 here. Haruhi here, but as a pre-order and at an absurd price.

I can only find Madoka, Perfect Blue, Baccano, Code Geass, and Fate/Zero at prices you probably don't want to pay.

u/VooDooZulu · 1 pointr/anime

that would be... nice? But only popular/serialized anime would have that. At Amazon you can request books to be turned into audio books but i don't know that process. spice and wolf novel 1 in the bottom right, you can click "let us know" in the audible section which may prompt a creation. Other than that, check youtube. thats all that i would know of where to get.

u/tw547 · 2 pointsr/anime

I have never bought an anime before, so I have a question: I'm planing to buy Steinsgate: Complete Series Classic, but does this come with Japanese voice acting with English sub as well as dubbing? Also, does anyone know where I can get the movie version that doesn't cost like $70?

English is not my primary language so sorry for the grammars. And thanks!

u/ToastyMozart · 3 pointsr/anime has it as usual, alternatively there's Zavvi which has free (surprisingly quick in my experience) shipping to the US.

Do bear in mind you will need a Region B/Region Free BD player to view them on (Playstations are neither).

u/RCgamer77 · 5 pointsr/anime

Good thing your favorite anime is actually cheap in Aniplex standard.
My all time favorite anime movie series Kara No Kyoukai, its blu ray limited edition costed nearly $900!
My fucking computer is cheaper than that!

u/iSereon · 3 pointsr/anime

The Blu Ray is the best option

But there’s also fansubs available out there as well if you’re on a budget

u/Xiroshq · 1 pointr/anime

Please remember what Amazon JP sells as Complete Edition, look at the last picture CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?!

u/Redcrimson · 1 pointr/anime

Well I found the quote and it was actually Jonathan Clements, the author of Anime: A History, when he did a spot on Rightstuf's podcast. The guy has actually written two books on anime, as well as several general books about Japan, and I think it's safe to say his research is probably fairly accurate.

u/JetStormTF · 2 pointsr/anime

For whatever its worth, Amazon UK has it listed for October 30, 2017 but the company distributing it also said that it is just a placeholder date so sometime between now and the end of October (I really hope it's sooner than that.)

u/Smartjedi · 1 pointr/anime

Check out the top reviews of the blu ray on Amazon here.

The users do a great job on presenting the good and bad of the release.

u/yokokurama112 · 2 pointsr/anime

It's actually because American shows make up almost all their production costs from ad space while airing or subscriptions (HBO, Showtime, etc. shows).

Anime, meanwhile, is doesn't have any of that ad support. The American companies only have profit from DVD/BD sales and MAYBE Toonami, Disney XD, etc. airing.

You're paying for a niche product, expect niche prices.

As for Black Lagoon, I don't know where you were looking on Amazon, but Funimation's set of seasons 1 and 2 is 25.99

u/ilkei · 2 pointsr/anime

I'm assuming you're from NA and are looking for the limited edition. If so Amazon is currently the cheapest I believe.

If you mean the Japanese Collectors Edition your best bet would be something like Play-Asia.

u/Brandon_2149 · 1 pointr/anime

Yeah, this is quite standard. Most anime will come out in parts in its first release. Then you'll have a complete series edition probably in a few years. Then an anime classic or save edition.

Look at how Steins;Gate originally released here. Exactly same as we have with Hyouka.

u/cptn_garlock · 2 pointsr/anime

Something like a Gurren Lagann core drill: I'd been planning on having a friend print one of these out of his Makerbot once I got around to modelling it.

u/Celticz · 2 pointsr/anime

u/ultimatemegax · 3 pointsr/anime

u/cheeseheadfoamy · 3 pointsr/anime

Yep, all available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble if you prefer to buy physical

u/Kiszoki · 20 pointsr/anime

Announced a while back. All the Anime are doing great by the UK market in my opinion. They're also releasing the film digitally next Monday (22nd).

u/DarkBlaze99 · 8 pointsr/anime

This collector's edition which can already be pre ordered on Amazon is just 20£ ! So I think it won't be that costly :)

(And then I won't feel bad buying it cuz I don't even have a Blu-ray player 😂)

u/-Nep · 7 pointsr/anime

Seriously any "complete series" you can find for $25 or less. Bang for the buck, no excuse not to add it to your shelf if you enjoy it or think you'll enjoy it.

Such as Spice and Wolf and Black Lagoon

u/spengineer · 1 pointr/anime

whatchu talkin' about with the end of monogatari. Owari's still got two more seasons (I think) and then there's zoku owari. Kizu, on the other hand, is literally the beginning. (a beginning, by the way, that you can purchase legally in english in just a few days)

u/fryzoid · 1 pointr/anime


Are you talking about this ? This covers parts 1 thru 3 or just part 2 ?

u/DeltaCharlieNiner · 2 pointsr/anime

Thanks, ahaha!

I've already preordered the collector's edition BluRay from Amazon and I'm waiting for the novels and manga to be released!

u/soracte · 3 pointsr/anime

I'm going to echo sdlroy and say that Clements's Anime: A History is really worth reading. He structures it using some ideas from historical epistemology about the kinds of historical accounts that normally get excluded from prestige/artistic histories, and I learned a tonne from reading it. That decision means less detailed treatments of periods we're more familiar with, but then... we're already more familiar with them. I think now that it's out it's really necessary reading for anyone who's interested at all in anime's history, not because it's the last word but precisely because it opens up so many less well-known things to think about. (And some of the anecdotes are priceless.)

u/ez1ollie · 1 pointr/anime

Honestly Wolf Children is pretty good also Steins;Gate.

Wolf Children $18 USD - link

Steins;Gate $35 USD - link

Now I personally haven't seen this yet but I hear Summer Wars ($16 USD) is a good family oriented anime movie - link

u/Oumae_Kumiko · 3 pointsr/anime

Regular and Collector blu rays of A Silent Voice (with dub, if you're interested) are being released in the UK - The UK and Aus/NZ have the same blu ray region.

All of that is to say... you'll be in luck if you wanted to buy it :P

u/KamikazeJawa · 12 pointsr/anime

Season 3 isn't happening but you can always buy the light novels in English!

English version Amazon links(keep in mind that the anime covers books 1,2,3 and 5):

u/TheEnigmaBlade · 1 pointr/anime

You can generally get them cheaper through Amazon and their list of other sellers. I've personally ordered from the first on the list a few times (indoobestsellers) and have had good results. BookDespository is also one of the sellers in the list, the only difference with their main site being it's $4.50 cheaper.

u/cirrus1 · 5 pointsr/anime

Anime - A History by Jonathan Clements is apparently a good book, though I've never read it myself.

u/kadunke · 1 pointr/anime

Based on what you've expressed interest in:

Japanese Collector's Edition (~$92.57 shipped to California)


  • 4k
  • Digipak with artwork


  • No DVD
  • No dub
  • You're paying for a handful of extras (miniscript, bonus disks, etc)
  • Pricey

    US Standard Edition ($34.98, will probably decrease before release)


  • Much cheaper than the Japanese collector's edition
  • Includes DVD
  • Includes sub and dub


  • No 4k
  • The cover art hasn't been revealed, but chances are it will underwhelm you compared to the Japanese collector's edition
u/Terranwaterbender · 5 pointsr/anime

This is mine

But I am debating whether or not to get the Tsuki ga Kirei BDs. I love the show but I'm cheap and frugal.

u/RiceStrikes · 2 pointsr/anime

You can get them on Amazon by like 2019 when translations catch up... If we buy enough books season 2 should be out before the official novels catch up.

u/MistakenRebel · 1 pointr/anime

I bought the collector's (non Amazon special) edition but the picture doesn't show the colorful looking art you have. Is that only for the most expensive version on Amazon because that page seems to have it.

I have this one. It's really nice and indeed much more reasonable. I believe the labels look different, I'll check tomorrow. Amsterdam time tomorrow.

/edit: Disc 2 has a complete different picture as label, disc 3 has the same picture but with other colors (white background).

u/PurposeDevoid · 8 pointsr/anime

You may know this already, but the high US costs are partially driven by the risk of reverse importation back to Japan (since the US and Japan are the same blu-ray region). By raising the price close to Japan's you mitigate the risk, so low cost versions will never be released until the shows stop selling in Japan. This is also why the UK gets cheaper versions (Madoka Blu-ray complete @~£20=$34) but with almost no bonus features. Things are changing with the recent Gurren Lagann acquisition in the UK, but we mostly get cheap and cheerful

Of course, the fact people buy it at a high price in the US has also got to make them want to keep costs high, and that mostly occurs due to such a large population for a single license region, so they can afford to do it.

u/Xirema · 23 pointsr/anime

Well for starters, their releases are easily some of the most expensive DVD/BD prices in the market.

The entirely of their Kara no Kyoukai collection? The used price is $400 for seven movies, only two of which are longer than 70 minutes. Bought used. Take that in for a second.

I don't know how they get people to buy their stuff, but apparently they do.

u/MaximalDisguised · 67 pointsr/anime

You can get kizu off of Amazon here.

Unfortunately, it's the only officially translated title in the series to be released in the US physically. You can find fan translations of the other books online, but if you want to read them in book form you'll have to wait until they're translated.

u/CptJackHarkn3ss · 6 pointsr/anime

Actually I just bought part 2 on amazon for just under $40. I check back three days later and they've both dropped to under $30 each for the bluray/dvd combo. At least that's the cheapest I've found them for.

Re:Zero is being published, it'll be 2 and half years before that catches up to where we are in the anime now and fan translators tend to avoid licensed light novels.

At least with Attack on Titan we've always had fan translations to follow regardless of the anime. Then again light novels move much quicker than manga.

  1. $30, and it's not just Steins;Gate. Most releases through Sentai, NIS, and Funimation are fairly priced. It's mostly Aniplex releases that can be somewhat pricey.

  2. Imports often come without subs, any NA released Blu-Ray is guaranteed to have subs and the subs for the most part are okay (with some exceptions).

  3. A lot is an exaggeration. Oppai mousepads and body pillows make up a small portion of OFFICIAL merchandise. There's other stuff available, but maybe you don't like it?

  4. Thank you for putting what I said in all-caps to make it seem like I was screaming at you.

    I'd rather not continue discussing this as it seems pointless to go back and forth with someone whose problems are seemingly non-existent.

BD is $34.99, DVD is $29.99, and the BD Limited Edition comes in at $84.98

Limited Edition

AFAIK, american “limited edition” is not 4k. (Your Name Limited Edition [BR + DVD] [Blu-ray]

u/Aachaa · 2 pointsr/anime

If you aren't able to find a way to watch it using this list, the only way to legally watch it is by purchasing the DVDs/BRs. That being said, there are many other more questionable options for watching it online that shouldn't be too difficult to dig up using Google.

u/rancor1223 · 2 pointsr/anime

Here is link to vol.1 on US Amazon. You should be able to find the rest from there.

Afaik, there is no electronic version of them.

Lost your drill, partner?

Kick reason to the curb, and do the impossible. Mine arrived in 2 days

u/UnavailableUsername_ · 3 pointsr/anime

Same with vinland.

Amazon had the new episode for an hour already but no thread:

u/Krazee9 · 5 pointsr/anime

Notice that's only Part 1 of 2, and Part 2 is still $50. The complete series is $42 USD, but is available for $40 CAD on and $27.50 USD on

The deals aren't as great as they seem.

u/1900220091 · 4 pointsr/anime

No, don't buy from not amazon sellers. This BD is for the UK

USA has no home release.

one time, there was a girl working the checkout counter wearing a core drill necklace. it just to happens that tittygill is my favorite anime of all time, so during our short transactional interaction (she input the items that i was buying into the system, and told me the total, i produced and swiped a card in order to pay), i managed to think of at least three things to say about it... "your drill is the drill[... etc]", "believe in the me[...etc]", "just who the hell do you think i am?!"

and then didn't say anything to her, because she was working a job and probably didn't want to be bothered. and i never saw her again.

Holy shit how did you manage to get that link? Urlencode is a hell of a drug.

Special characters should work in modern browsers without any problems too:早期購入特典あり-月がきれいBlu-ray-初回生産限定版-早期予約キャンペーン-べにっぽ付-予約締切-2017年8月31日/dp/B071DP3Z38/ref=pd_cp_74_1?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=B34804GZ0S19RJ0QTPQJ

It's the same link without urlencode* substitutions. If that's not opening, then get a real browser.

(*= I normally wouldn't recommend touching w3fools tutorials with a long pole, but that one at least looked correct and couldn't find any better sources quickly.)

u/gacman47 · 6 pointsr/anime

Yeah. That's like half of the girl anime characters though.

Those anime shouldn't have what you dread. Maybe FLCL in some places, but it uses it for comedy. I also forgot to recommend Death Note.

Also if you want to try slice of life anime (sexy stuff are nil here): Azumanga Daioh, Nichijou - My Ordinary Life, and Toradora (mostly romance).

Edit: Nichijou - My Ordinary Life is coming on Blu-ray in a few days. $50 with Amazon Prime. There may be complaints about there being no dub. But with this kind of anime, it would be seriously hard to dub.

u/faylan7 · 1 pointr/anime

They'll probably come out with a $600 BD box set at some point, it'd be idiotic for them not to.

I'm not joking about the probable price point, either. The recent Kara no Kyokai blu-ray boxed set cost 55,800 yen - almost seven hundred dollars.

u/MasterKhan_ · 87 pointsr/anime

Wait a minute. The movie came out in 2016 and the blu ray came out late 2017. I remember I bought it the second it was available from Amazon.
Comes with sub and dub.

Edit: I did a bit of research and it seems like they fucked you guys over in North America :( damn!

u/Gigafrost · 1 pointr/anime

Everything. >:D

Actually looking at your list, the only thing I noticed is that you didn't finish Kara no Kyoukai. (In fact, you didn't watch the third movie, which was awesome.) I was going to mention that you could pick up the Japanese Blu-ray boxed set assuming it was still available except that

  • It's REALLY expensive now...
  • says it can't ship to my default address, meaning it's no longer shipping internationally.
  • It's not available at The Right Stuf.

    Hmmm... so then the question becomes if there's any rare DVDs you might want to be aware of but it doesn't look like any of them are particularly noteworthy wrt your list.

  • You probably won't be trying to get Pokemon on DVD any time soon so you won't be struggling to obtain season 3...
  • I don't see any Rumiko Takahashi so no need to worry about Maison Ikkoku Box 8...
  • Haruka: Beyond the Stream of Time is probably not high priority...

    In fact, other than Kara no Kyoukai, the only other thing on there that might have been a little more difficult to get is 5 Centimeters Per Second since apparently the older ADV release has gone up in price, but why get that when you can just get the one coming out now~ish? (I think you can get it from Bandai now, but you have to wait until April before it'll show up at more common distributor's sites.)

    So, I guess you really do need suggestions based on content and not specifically the collecting of DVDs aspect so I guess I can't help too much. Unless you need assistance finding an older release or something, but that's just a simple matter of searching on Amazon (or maybe via DVD Aficionado, if you're having trouble narrowing the results.)

    EDIT: Oh, FLCL came out this week. That might be a reasonable first pick-up since it'll probably be very easy to find and I hear the price is reasonable.
u/Radioactive24 · 11 pointsr/anime

The "Bebop Crew Edition" has the coolest design and the most useless add-ons:

Digipak cases suck and PVC Bookends are useless

But $500 is reasonable, right? Just to know how bad Funimation is trying to fuck you:
