I don't understand how the manga box is originally worth $500 for 26 volumes. According to that, each volume was worth $20.

In comparison, the 30 DVDs were worth $200, making it $6 a DVD.


Yes. What's so odd about that?

Iv bought Multiple Anime box's last time they had them which is part of the reason I am now a Premium member, Sales always get me The series last time were usually all the same all 3 times which made it easier in getting more volumes of the same to continue your collection but it did result in getting duplicates. I think out of the 90 I have from those, 15-20 are duplicates, some are 2-3 duplicates of the same exact one. I feel its worth it simply due to how inexpensive it is and also, I got some old classics that I forgot about and have enjoyed. Manga box, well I haven't been able to buy a manga in a store for years due to not wanting to stand in barnes and nobles surrounded by people half my age looking at manga. The stares are what kill me, usually makes me just read them online which I hate since I loved to lay on me bed or couch and hang my head off the side reading upside down. When I couldn't feel my head meant that I was doing something right. Happy they posted that there is new inventory for the anime's this time as it means hopefully no more duplicates of old boxes.

I bought the manga box. Only have four series right now, so I'm looking to expand my selection.

I usually avoid bargain bags and boxes at anime conventions. I always saw it as just a bunch of stuff they couldn't sell.

I figured I would take another chance on CR. Got the manga and the anime boxes. I just hope they don't contain duplicate discs/books. I also hope that they are from series I've at least heard about. I guess there's no harm in trying out some random anime. That's how I got on this site. I guess I'll just have to see.



The stuff that doesn't sell is under appreciated.
I couldn't count the number of items licensed by the Simpsons that are obviously banking on the brand.

Sad I couldn't get the manga box :'( if only it had gone on another six hours or so, then I could have after I got paid.

I've in general found any companys estimated worth on anything to do with entertainment items or its accessorys themed like it the pricing never matches the materials making it either too much or exactly what you paid for, dirt cheap. In most retail stores they charge about 15-25 $ for volumes of bleach and naruto, etc. I guess they're going by standard american retail pricing? Either way its probably partly to exaggerate it a little so you feel like the deal is all that much moren worth it in my opinion.

It's actually a good business strategy. They give you random stuff with only 1 or 2 volumes. If a product is tasteful to the customer, he/she will get the rest of that related stuff from CR. Of course, he/she'll pay the full price then.

Not to mention, this is a good way to empty CR's stocks.
If you get a duplicate, their win; while you're just bum out of the experience.

Might as well go to a MovieStop, and pray to heavens that someone trade their used anime dvds for you to purchase in bulk.

In the US manga is pretty much $10 per volume. I haven't ever seen anything above $12.

I considered getting these, but after seeing some of the pictures that people posted after getting theirs, it doesn't seem worth it. Its obviously all the stuff that no one was willing to buy individually. Almost every picture had the same stuff: Gun sword, Viewtiful Joe, Appleseed, Ueki, etc. I think I'm gonna pass.
