That's cheaper than the total of my collection 1+2 set together for $69.95AUD
Still glad that us aussies got the blu-ray sooner than the US pretty much opposite to how it usually goes.

Aye, Abunai.

This is what I take home from conventions on average, if the right dealers are present.

OP: Yeah, any anime DVD you find that says it offers Chinese subtitles is *probably* a bootleg. Especially if you don't live in Asia.

I think my best deal was when I recognized a rare OOP manga at a used bookstore, bought it for $5, and sold it on auction, and it ended up selling for a lot more than I paid for it. The same bookstore often has deals on manga, going as low as $1 per volume. That's where the bulk of my manga collection came from. Also recently paid $1 for a manga artbook that's $40 on the market.

For anime deals, they once sold a bunch of DVD disks that had lost their cases. I got the complete Hellsing original series for 25 cents :P

I also buy anime magazines like Animage and Newtype at a Japanese bookstore when they're on clearance. They generally come with nice extra items like posters and such.

That's not to say I don't pay full price for new stuff; I do - a lot. But hey, if you see it on sale, and it's not something that you feel invested in enough to buy new, then why not?

BTW, I have a spreadsheet of things I'm interested in buying, sorted by company releasing them. Everything from stuff that's already been released, and things that have been announced but are not available for PO. Then if there's a sale or I need to get more to get free shipping from Rightstuf, I don't have to think hard about what to get.

I went to F.Y.E one day and saw a used copy of Perfect Blue for $8 it was in great condition too. I decided to check Amazon to see how much Perfect Blue went for and if my memory serves correct it went used for $22 and new for $68.

Funny enough, I went to the Dollar Trees in Annapolis today. They didn't seem to have any type of anime/cartoon selection at all. (unless I overlooked it by accident)

I've only had a chance to look at one Dollar Tree so far. Interested in checking more, cause that's a pretty good get for a buck!
