What is the most you are will to spend on an anime series in its entirety? I loved Madoka Magika, there are few series i have enjoyed as much as it and i went all out and got the Collectors Edition of all 3 volumes and that was around $230 for the whole series, more then i would spend on any other series. Normally i would be willing to spend $35-$40 on each volume of a 2 volume series, anything more and i cant push myself to buy it.

So whats the most you are willing to spend on an anime?

For me there is only one anime I'd want to purchase for a physical copy: Kimi ni Todoke. Any other anime/tv/movie etc. I gladly just watched here or on my computer or something.

I'd probably only spend around £60 at most.

I've paid up to $65 for anime dvds. Wouldn't pay more than $70 unless it was multiple collections in one. in which case, I'd pay no more than $110.

I don't buy physical copies of anime. One, because I have nothing to watch them on, and two, because it seems like a waste of money when I can watch so many series on CR. I don't often rewatch things, either. And DVDs/BDs are so flipping expensive!

Up to $20-30 depending on how good it is.

A DVD costs $5-10 for a 1.75 hr minute movie. An anime is 24 minutes x 13 episodes per season (or collection 1 of 2 if the season is 25+ episodes) and that's 5.2 hours. 5.2/1.75 or about 3 movies worth of length. 5 x 3 = $15, 10 x 3 = $30.

and since new anime are streamed, I'd rather get the older bargain-priced DVD-only anime whenever possible (since I now know how to look out for non-pirate copies.. since amazon's fooled me a few times.)

Individually in or around $20. About what amazon is offering now. $23 for Soul Eater complete series bluray, $17 for Eden of the East complete series bluray. Anything more than that I'll just end up waiting.

I blew $150 at [email protected] in a single sitting.

I won't blow over $40 per dvd/blu-ray piece though.

Once upon a time, before streaming or even DVDs for that matter, I spent a frightening amount of money on anime. I don't even want to consider how much I spent on Ranma 1/2, but that was one VHS at a time. I think I spent over $300 on Kimagure Orange Road in one go. That's close to $400 in today's money. Now I'm willing to spend $8 a month Maybe $15-20 if Funi ever gets their stuff together.
