Otherwise, I've been able to pick up some of the subtitled import sets for pretty cheap to try different series out. If they are good, I'll invest in teh licensed versions (sometimes paying the Big Bucks!).

I haven't really been buying anime much lately but the latest one I bought is Full Metal Alchemist Conquerer of Shambala

only ever bought inuyasha from before when i didn't watch jap. version, honestly, its not much worth it to buy dubbed series, they suck most of the time, i have bought sum older subbs though which i really liked, i got my hands on some old soccer animes for like 25$, total of over 200 eps, dont have dvds near me so i dont know the series off my head lol

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.

no it was not that one it was the small set with 6 disk in one folding case no extras at all it is harder to find but it is so much cheaper i get most of it on different online stores you just have to check to make sure they are a real seller. the problem they only get a few so they sell out fast.


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.


no it not an all region set it came out before that special edition set . they released the big set a few weeks later.
