Just looking for some super dupe anime deals for the upcoming Black Friday/holiday season! I mean I know I can search them myself but I'm looking for something of a catalogue of particularly enticing deals. I've seen articles mentioning particulars from funimation or other broader retailers [i.e. Walmart, XBL, etc.] discounting digital media but I' curious as to the deals you've all come across. I'm not gonna list the things I'm really 'looking for' but recommendations for new series to get into that are going on sale or even some direction as to where I could find a fair amount of discounted series/merch. would be appreciated. I'm a sucker for art when it comes to merch. but I'm really interested in checking out new/old series I may have never got around to buying or watching. If you've found any sweet deals on your favorite stuff please just spam the hell out of this thread I hope there isn't already a thread like this as I didn't look, just ended up writing this up quickly amidst my own frantic search for stuff

Actually, me too, like to buy some good anime dvd or even blue-ray if there is on sale.. Went to some anime website in the past but didn't get a very good to keep in the collection. Only once a year that I went to Amine-Expo... there I can get so many good anime dvd to keep As a CR member, I would love to support its business by buying stuffs from here (which I knew that it'll be a perfect trust in every goodies)

I'm a big fan of Detective Conan both the series and movie. Just heard that its new movie: Conan Epesod 1 will come out next month!! Hope that CR would have all it's movies from 1-20 on this web too. I'm collecting the movie's dvd/blue-ray, so sad that I couldn't find any of them in the US. I found some in Thailand but most of them are Thai sub, barely find the Eng sub/dub so sad.... I knew I should try at the Funimation or Viz... again just hope that CR would have them in stock for sale on the Blk Friday!!! LOL

Thanks for this thread! Hope we both can get what we asked for

There's the annual Rightstuf Holiday sale that's always a good place to start. Deals are added every day well beyond Black Friday going into late December. My usual go-to place for sales this time of year on anime.

Funimation also just started their Black Friday sale which lasts until 11/28. It looks like it has some good deals on it, but I haven't looked through most of it yet.

Yup. RS always has some good deals each year and will continue to add them daily until close to Christmas, typically.



FUNimation's shop currently has a Pre-Black Friday sale on nearly every DVD/BD in the shop that is not very recent or a pre-order at 50% off MSRP. They will likely have an actual Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale on select items (likely clearance/OOP stuff) with an even bigger discount, too.



Best Buy will probably have a few deals on the anime they carry come Black Friday in store, and maybe online as well.

Amazon usually has some anime on sale in the coming weeks, too.

Just thought I'd point out FUNimation's shop has the first 130 episodes of Detective Conan/Case Closed on DVD over five season sets for $15 each in the sale link above. A few of the movies on DVD are in the sale as well.

@PandAndy: I don't really understand what you try to direct my word to, but I meant I've been disappointed with their services on selling DVD for me.

Just curious. I've never had trouble with RS, but it's only been maybe two years since I started buying from there. Their customer service has been nothing but prompt and courteous with me, though. The only real problems I've had were when post left a package of books out in the rain and with their "blind boxes" where they don't tell you how many bargain items they are pulling from (so you end up with repeats if you buy too many.) Their sales prices are hard to beat, though.

As to what you were asking to begin with: you might check out http://www.animecornerstore.com/. I've only ordered from there once before on an item that was hard to find, but I didn't have any problems and the price was reasonable. They might have the Detective Conan DVDs in stock and might have a running sale.

No problem.

To save you some time searching, here is a direct link to all the Detective Conan/Case Closed DVDs on sale in the FUNi shop right now:

http://shop.funimation.com/Shop/Shop_Filter.ss?scategory=1339156&sf=sf&filterbyshow=10

Those prices are as low as you usually will see for these DVDs year round, so it is a good buy during this sale.

@Sonic720: Thanks for the link!! that's help a lot... I went there and ordered some blu-rays already!! I didn't buy any of Conan... because I'm not sure my PS 3 will play it. it's so weird that my PS 3 right now didn't play DVD anymore (which it did well before i update things) --I also just bought a whole set of Harry Potter all in Blu-rays too...

I saw on Funimation (the link you gave me) it has 1-5 seasons (ep1-103 I think) so, it's not up till present ep, right? but the price was so tempted!!!! I bought One Piece the Movies (blu-ray just for $9+ each) unbelievable price!!! and bought a set of Guilty Crown.

thanks so much for your link & info. Hope you have a good night!
