Hi, I took my chances and got one of these. The last couple of times they did this I didn't have enough money to buy these but I now I had the money to buy these. I'm buying these mostly for me and my oldest niece to watch we both love animes :).

You ended up with a few good titles =)
Well 1 persons trash is another persons treasure.


A few good titles don't matter if they're episodes 10-12 of a series that's out of print.

You have a vintage stock local? They have super cheap anime dvd's new and used to complete set. I found complete platinum Evangelion set for about $20 total including original first 2 movies.

Is the Mystery Box collection worth it?

I dunno. Is a stack of plastic worth it when we have streaming media and cloud storage?

I find it hilarious that the ad says "You save $184.00"

Youre not saving $184.00, youre wasting 15.99!!! I guess some people just gotta have their stuff and junk to get that endorphin high, though. I already give CR 6 bucks a month. Now theyre trying to beat me over the head with this garage sale nonsense? Yea... NO!

Considering what happened to Geneon/Pioneer and more recently Bandai, it's not 100% fair to say that there will always be a streaming option (or more to the point, a legal one in that vein.) Owning the physical media is one form of protection against that, though I will also freely acknowledge not everyone wants to have a shelf/bookcase/home theater/etc. full of anime. I always watch what I own multiple times over the course of years, so for me personally, I feel I get my money's worth from them. I buy the series I want to keep for years, and watch the rest legally on CR and elsewhere.

That said, I'm passing on this deal this time around. I was happy with the last two boxes I bought. But I also have Ni No Kuni arriving early next week, and that will inevitably use up much of the time I might otherwise spend on anime.

That depends. In my case, I have pretty much every older Anime title I want since I've been into Anime for more than a decade now. (That's scary. ) This deal would be somewhat good for someone new to Anime that wanted to sample some things. HOWEVER, you WILL NOT get "complete" sets and would have to track down missing volumes yourself. Since many titles are out of print, you might have to pay an arm-and-a-leg for ONE volume that's hard to find. If you've been into Anime for a while, it's probably better to pass on the deal. If you're relatively new to Anime, you might want to try your luck and see what you get.

I bought two of these boxes just because I'm very curious about what I'm going to get. And this would make my anime collection look much bigger. This is exciting, like playing the lottery. First time I'm doing this.

Thanks. I would not consider myself an expert compared to someone I once ran into at the manga section (who knew practically EVERYTHING) but I would not consider myself a beginner either.

I'm so tempted to get this mystery box. I'm still going through my last one, which had some series that I would like to complete and others I want to get rid off.
