I try to get the Blu-ray/DVD combos for any movie or anime, that I get.

Blu-ray/DVD combo if available. Blu-ray if not. I got a blu-ray drive for my computer so i might as well put it to good use. Plus they aren't that much more expensive than DVDs at this point if you shop smart.

Since I bought a Playstation not that long ago I will be going to Blu-rays. DVD aren't bad, but I only bought them since I didn't have a blu-ray player.

DVDs cost less, but I'll grab Blu-ray if it's cheaper (or close to the price of DVD) and/or I can't find a DVD version of an anime.

Blu-Rays, if I get a combo pack that's a bonus. But Blu-Rays are definitely the preference, higher quality for not much of a price difference.

Blu-ray unless it's Aniplex (though I do plan to get Durarara on Blu-ray).

Some Animes got ridiculous price difference. Once I've seen 20 USD for DVD while the BD is 40 USD.

I still mostly get DVD's because I already had anime on DVD before I got a Blu-Ray player (PS3) and I wouldn't like having the different sized cases all jumbled up. (I'm a bit obsessive that way).

Also, i figure that animation is drawn to a budget, so most anime TV shows aren't going to have the little details that would require high definition. I do get anime films on Blu-Ray though.

If I can get a Blu version, I usually prefer that version (unless the pricing is absolutely insane), but I won't refuse a DVD release either.

if watching via HDMI then blue ray is the best medium for that, DVD is best suited via dvd player..


I gave up counting past 3500 for my dvd collection..


if my main playback medium is going to be a bd player I much prefer blue rays as the source as dvd's in general look shit over hdmi

given bd stores more info it would stand to reason wanting bd as the storage choice given you reduce disc count by going bd anyway...

Honestly, if the series was made before HD was standard, it doesn't really matter if you have DVD or blu ray. They'll be more clear on blu ray, but just by a tiny bit. If it's an anime that's mastered for HD, then, definitely, get the blu ray, if possible.

I don't have a Blu-ray player, so DVD's for me! I notice that they're usually cheaper anyway, and it's good for me. Though, I don't usually end up buying DVD's, since they are still expensive. I mainly stream...

Plus, I don't actually see a difference in quality. Except if it's SD to 1080p. I always stream in 480p anyway, so DVD's are just fine. Even if they are not the 'highest quality'.
