Some of these look really cheap. Are they original DVDs, or are you buying pirated =ILLEGAL?

:S I want damned DVDs.

Come to think of it, I have the whole current available DVD and Manga(Untranslated and Translated versions) Volumes of HunterXHunter. It cost me 7,000 Php. That is around 200 US$

The Dolls, and action figures has a different story.

RM250? Whoa. I got Ouran for like, RM49.99, it's pretty pricey, but I suppose some anime are worth it. :mellow:

damn....there is no such cheap price in malaysia.....i only have got Gundam Wing for liek RM 250......thats liek 75 USD ish....curse import taxes....but if you want bad bargains....2 Episodes of Naruto, Low Quality, Malay Dubbed and Malay subbed


Oh god Malay dubs are the worst. If possible, they make some of the characters sound even more retarded than they originally were, which I didn't think was possible.


Ouran for 49.99.....is it original or pirated.....bcs i know alot of pirated places that sells full seasons of anime in 5 dvds for 49.99....

the RM250 was original, with a nice box

And yes, Malay Dubs ARE the worst possible, "teknik pembayang klon" doesnt hold a candle to "kage bushin no jutsu", but at least we can watch dubs for laughs....


Original, that's why it's expensive. Over here, the pirated stuff is like, RM5 a disc(about 26 episodes/one season). But their selection of anime is very limited, so in the end, have to use internet or buy original stuff.

Sometimes I suspect they use the same voice actor for several characters because I can't tell them apart. >_>

they are quite recent....they have Shakugan no Shana...Hayate No Gotoku....Tsubasa Chronicles....School Rumble...and quite alot of recent anime.....they actually have MORE choice than places like AnimeTech....but i dont buy from there....because i prefer to use the internet

You wanna talk about bargains? Ok, I got the entire series of Gungrave for $5 on DVD, practically brand new. Same thing with RahXephon, $5 and practically brand new. That's about as good as it gets. 48 episodes of anime, $10. That's a little more then 17 1/2 hours of anime. I got the Evangelion series for about $50, lol not as good as $5, but it was worth it for EVA.


I try to be wary of those $5 deals because they usually are bootlegs.

Honestly though, this thread isn't about bargains. It's about getting your money's worth. That means a dollar well spent. I could have easily said Midori days considering thats a series I got for less than $1 an episode, but I don't think it was nearly as good as Noein or Cowboy Bebop.

Please tell me where you got those box sets for $5 though. I've been looking for a chance to get Gungrave for a while, but the retail price is almost $200. No one would dare try to sell it at $5. I don't really want the anime legends edition, but if thats the only one available then ok.

I gotten the whole buy one get one free before with some anime. I got a deal on my birthday. Yesterday I paid on $6 and some changes for a Manga that could have cost 9.99 plus tax, so it would have been 10.83, depending on the store. And there used to be a store that I got Girl Bravo for only $7 for. It was great.

the cheapest i bought was for less than $1 for a compressed dvd..
the quality is similar to the original ones its just that its not a rip off even if you purchase 100 dvds...
that really alot of anime...
last time i bought $20 i ended up with 24 dvds...
that includes

school rumble season 1&2
honey and clover 1&2
gakuen alice
strawberry panic
deathnote (with a free death note live action)
blood +
saiunkoku monogatari
kirarin revolution and so many more...

i think this is the best deal ive got.
if you buy a lot you can still haggle!

Hate to break it to you, but there is only one official release of the Zeta Gundam box set. You probably got one of those all region bootlegs.

Note to those who condone buying bootlegs. This is a thread about good anime purchases. If you're not getting the official release, then you are getting ripped off. Think about it. If you bother getting a fake release, then you could do it on the internet for free.
