Where can I buy anime DVD's that won't cost me an arm and a leg? Every video store I've been to has been too expensive..


If you can purchase items online then check out the Crunchyroll Store or Rightstuf. http://www.rightstuf.com
If you can not purchase online items then honestly all I got is look in the bargain bins at Best Buy, Walmart, or any other big retail store.

Can you purchase online (i.e., do you have a credit card)? Are you willing to buy used DVDs/Blu-rays?

If so, I'd recommend checking out Amazon.com's anime section. Not only are their new DVDs/Blu-ray anime priced competitively, but if you look at the alternative sellers they list, you can usually find some great deals on slightly used stuff.

Tips on buying Anime DVDs:

- Don't buy a series when it is first released unless you're will to pay the highest price for it. "First adopters", as they're referred to in the Tech world, usually pay the highest price. Typically, a show/series will be re-released a few times over the course of a couple years, and with each release, it becomes somewhat less expensive. However...

- The above rule does not apply to a lesser known show. Some less popular shows might not receive a second or third re-release and therefore you'll either have to pay what's being offered or buy it Used.

- Don't be afraid to buy used DVDs. If you carefully look at the sellers on Amazon.com, you'll find some very reputable people who have been somewhat vetted by Amazon and are selling decent Used anime at a good price.

Buying Used DVDs really depends on what you're after.

-- if a show is no longer being released in your region, then Used is the only legal way to go (for physical media). Obviously, you could hit Ebay and buy bootlegs (or "boots" as they're known), but the quality will likely greatly suffered. I would recommend staying away from Ebay unless you know what to look for.

-- If you're a purist who need pristine DVD covers and liners notes, then Used is probably not the way to go, but the DVDs themselves should be fine unless they were seriously abused.... which shouldn't be a problem going through Amazon.

-- Buying Used anime DVDs is an inexpensive route if you just want to watch the show and don't really care about owning Limited Edition box sets and what not.

Anyway... this is getting long. Hope some of it helps. Good luck.

Cheers.

With Right Stuf, you can typically get most everything about 40% off (more with a Got Anime membership) during studio sales. They also have a 12 Days of Christmas sale, weekly specials, daily deals and bargain bin items.

I know the first two seasons of Higurashi are Ni and Kai, but according to Wikipedia there are also two OVA series, Rei and Kira. Are these a continuation of the story and are mandatory viewing or are the first two seasons all I need to watch?

Pretty sure just the first two series explain everything. The OVAs are either extras or just terrible.

No. Most of DaR is a recap of the TV series, and about the first half hour of End of Eva.

According to the Wiki article on this, it seems TV Tokyo is the one that broadcasts the new eps first. Read the Naruto: Shippuden heading for the info on that. And if u look at the broadcast times page on the TV Tokyo site, it says this (if u use Chrome's auto-language translate feature): "30 minutes to popular broadcast 7:00 every Thursday night!" ~ So I'm assuming that means 7pm (Japan time)... I think.
