yeah, it's really cheaper here, but then, there are limited numbers of shops that sell anime dvds to the public, so in most places it's not that accessible.....

$10 for 5 episodes ^_^. I bought like 3 Conan DVDS (with like 20 eps total) for ONLY $20 , But then again, the series has over 400 eps, so I wonder how much that would be? About $400?

Unfortunately where I live we don't have anywhere that sells anime dvd's, though sometimes I go out of town and find them but I wouldn't buy dvd's at stores anyways making you pay so much for them. So it's the good old internet for me...I usually find them on ebay and they are quite cheap sometimes 10-20 dollars per season but it just depends on the anime..I bought (or I should say sniped it from someone lol) the whole series of prince of tennis on ebay for 50 dollars which is very cheap if you ask me...I like buying box sets but I have seen some outrageous priced ones for over 200 dollars...


For the ones for 10-20 dollars, was it free shipping? If so, I might just maybe run over and buy something o-o

Wow... You are complaining about 4 episodes for $30 (USD) You don't remember when it was 2 episode VHS tape for $35.

Not that I disagree. I think that DVD's should have 4-6 episodes for $15 - $20

If you think $10 is reasonable you are forgetting the cost to buy the Japanese license, to dub it and sub it, the production costs and the distribution and marketing costs. $10 is a little cheapskate for 4 episodes. $15 bucks at least.

Boxed sets should go for $35 - $100 Depending on the number of episodes and packaging extras.
IMHO.


PS please support the fandom BUY SOMETHING SOMETIME!!!

I guess it just depends on the dvd like newer ones usually are more expensive sometimes up to 50 dollars per season but I like older ones so they usually sell for cheaper sometimes lol...but it just depends on if you get a good seller or not....the same dvd season that is selling cheap someone else could be selling them for a price that is twice as expensive. Sometimes they come with free shipping but I usually have to pay extra because they have to special ship it to where live unfortunately lol.

Enjoy!


Agreed I think $15-$20usd is a decent range for new releases, but if it goes over that its too expensive. ADV was able to cut costs with their slim pack designs. I bought Gantz season 1 slim for about $39 and Excel Saga Collection was only $14-$15. Packaging may increase costs as well. It just needs to be fixed to reduce costs.

Yes packaging actually causes some of the cost problem. But with the new slim packs I hope prices come down too.

15 bucks should be ~~ for the 4 ep case with US cuurency, if the anime has 12 eps at much. For a whole series I would pay 50 bucks if its 24 eps or more. Currently my country is having some major problems with piracy so I can go down to the flea market every sunday and I can but whatever I like for 5 bucks or less, or even better 3X10 lmao.
