Unfortunately, Eureka Seven is a Bandai title, so you're not likely to find any legit copies of it for cheap. Bandai has discontinued their DVD production, so what's out there is all there is. I can't imagine it getting any cheaper as time goes on either, especially if you want it new. If you're willing to buy used, Amazon will likely be your best choice to find a good deal that isn't a bootleg. I've used them to get some volumes of Cardcaptor Sakura, which is also out of print. Compared to Ebay, the prices on Amazon are consistently lower from what I've observed.

Someone complained early in this thread about my lack of bluray...

Now that I have a couple of anime blurays, I'm left with the conundrum of "Do I store them with all my bluray discs or do I store them with all my anime?" as they are not together. It's absolutely murdering my OCD. I hope you're satisfied.

pic related, it hurts me as bad as this does

Edit : Y'all have some really impressive collections, I love seeing what other people like!


I feel your pain. I don't separate DVDs from Blu-rays because I like looking at anime snuggle with other anime...So, the answer to the thread topic is yes, I still buy anime I really, really like on a nice touchable disc. Streaming is great for checking out lots of titles and deciding if I want a physical copy, but it's not dependable if there's something really special that I want to keep around for a while, since licenses fluctuate and things just disappear into the ether.

I never want to have to delicately wipe a layer of dust of my anime collection ever again (though in my defense they were higher than I could reach) because it hurts my soul, thus if I can't have them on dust-free display, then they have to be somewhere tucked away safe... my precious... Even if I put the blurays and dvds together, I've still got VHS... I can't put those old monsters on display; it'd look like a museum in here!

The person a few pages back with the glass front display cabinets---Now THAT was win. I could probably fit everything in one of those.

Clearly, the final solution is to get a bigger house with enough rooms to ensure I get one just for my anime and video games... Confidentially... There's more stuff. Wall scrolls, posters, stickers... If it was solely my room? Throw Hello Kitty in there as well. Now that I'm all starry-eyed and delusion, I'm going to go study my accounting again to fund my lofty aspirations. To the books!

I'm pretty happy with those, but now I regret not getting more... Both cases are completely filled up and right now there are another 4 series coming my way.

As for storing them, I tend to keep the anime with the anime as much as I can, but my anime does use the same storage space as my normal movies and series do.
I might go and sort that out one day, but not today. :)

I buy them one I can, Hell Girls first season, Bebop series and movie, Samurai Champloo, Darker than Black first season, and Trinity Blood (kinda regret that one.. does it get better than the first few episodes??)

I plan on buying more once my employment situation gets better... I really want a Lucky Star Collection, and a Genshiken set.

actually i think i found a decent offer on Ebay, about $150 for both Anime Legends complete collection boxes and the movie compared to paying about $400 on Amazon, but it confuses me why Eureka 7 hasn't been rescued and rereleased like Code Geass, after all it's a fairly popular series

I suppose it depends on the series. If I'm going to buy it on DVD or not. I usually buy them on DVD so that my brother can enjoy them as he doesn't have internet. So any good ones I let him borrow.

I buy DVDs, not fond of downloading or streaming, but that seems to be the way its going. But usually the anime I like never makes it to a region 1 release so I don't buy as much as I would.

Hopefully I'll soon be looking to invest in a suitable display/storage device; I'll be sure to take into account my future collection purchases! What's really taking up my space now is the mangas... They are definitely more space-consuming than DVDs.

I swear to you, I twitched for a solid minute when I saw that Monk pic... That is one of my absolute favorite shows, are you a fan as well?

It makes one wonder if they didn't do it on purpose.

If so, they should have used an image of a distressed Monk looking down and to the left.

Saying I am a big fan would be an overstatement, but Monk always was one of the series I sat down for.
Perhaps one day I will buy the set and watch it start to finish.

If the pic of Monk looked distressed on Season 7's box, I would suspect Harold.

George_z If you get a chance, you should, I really do love that show; I've seen them all a dozen times and I'll still watch them again and laugh my ass off.

Mr. Monk and the Red-Headed Stranger is the best.
