I been thinking of taking the box to an anime IRL meetup, dumping the sealed dvds in a bag, and offer for 50 cents or a dollar to reach in and blindly take one. That should help me recover the cost for what I spent on that box of DVDs.

Even at a $1, it's kind of hard to pass up. Brand new sealed random anime DVD.

Yeah that's why I thought about buying a box because it's such a great a good deal. But I'm so afraid I'll get like all full seasons of Bobobobobobo. I say definitely go with that sales plan tho!

All 30 of my disks are sealed. It was certainly not the best purchasing decision I ever made.

Quick question
Did any of you buy your boxes on the 26th or 27th?
(Those who have recieved theirs)
Also how long does it usually take?

Well then I hope I get it soon

Oh! By the way, do you have to be home to receive it and like sign for it or anything or will they leave it on your doorstep?

Nope, and don't be in such a rush. There really isn't anything that great in it.

Well regardless at the current moment the only anime I have on DVD is Digimon season 1 vol 1 and the Lucky Star OVA so I'm just excited to sample a bunch of different anime (hopefully)

I actually stopped buying a lot of anime after I got a crunchyroll subscription and also after the funimation channel was dropped from Verizon FiOS. I used to buy sooooo much anime when Funimation Channel was on Verizon FiOS.

i ordered mine on the 27th, but also still waiting. for me its not the im getting stuff that excites me, its the what did i get from the whole feeling of mystery boxes/bags. and the feeling something is expected to come makes me happy

I can see that and it makes sense, you bought something therefore you want to be happy with what you bought.
Me personally I enjoy most everything I do in life and I'm usually the person who finds the happy moment in the rainy day! (Unless I'm in the rain then I'm the one spazzing out!) I understand the need to wait but i can also be impatient and hype myself up for stupid things! Even when I do this it still takes a heck of a lot of disappointment to ruin my day!

I ordered mines on the 26th of Jan. Usually it takes 2-5 weeks. 5 weeks at the most, but it depends on your postal service for the 2-4 weeks. Last time I did the mystery box, it took about 3 weeks. It's the suspense of what you might get that makes it hard to wait lol
