The Best Anime I Ever Bought.....
« on: May 22, 2011, 04:18:59 pm »
I'm not talking the one you bought that you like the best, but rather the best deal you ever got buying an anime, even though/if you didn't know what it was about.
Example? I was at K-Mart the other day, perusing the workout videos, and mixed in was a 2-disc anime dvd pack. Its called "Cyborg 009", and when i went to price check it, it was only 3.99!! So of course I picked it up, even though I've never heard of it. It's actually pretty good, made in 1979 (according to ANN). Though it's not the best thing I've ever seen, it makes the top of the best thing I've ever bought list!

So what about you?
2013 (in the works): Soi Fong (Bleach), Faith (Mirrors Edge), Agito/Akito (Air Gear)
Stay tuned for more information at a later date.

Cyborg 009 is amazing! I wish I had found that deal. D: I miss that show...


I made a deal on these forums actually... Complete Saiyuki DVD set for only $100 when it normally doesn't go for under at least $150. :) All unopened and two of the seasons are the boxsets.

There's also a thing I didn't buy...
A friend moved away recently and the DVDs he didn't want he let me go through and I got Final Fantasy (like the original final fantasy) boxset on DVD for free. ^^

I bought a Hamtaro VHS tape once that had the first 4 or so episodes on it for a buck .w.; It was pretty good deal i must say. I thought the anime was cute.

I buy anime at Big Lots all the time. They are usually Funimation and are $3 a disk which has about 7 eps. I have gotten whole series for 12 dollars.

Why do I never find anime there. ;A;

The best anime that I own is Escaflowne and Summer Wars. But the best deal I've gotten is at this dollar book store I shop at. They have movies there. I've found 5 different volumes of Yugioh for a dollar each. So I now own about a 1/4 of the series or so with that.

I just got "Armitage III: Poly-Matrix" from RightStuf for about $3, and "Origin: Spirits of the Past" for $5. I'd say both prices rank among some of my best finds just based on how much I love both films.

(And now I have three Armitage films, Poly-Matrix, the Armitage OVA, and Dual-Matrix....too much?)

My wife bought me Record of Lodoss War in LaCrosse, Wi. when we were on our trip there, for something like $20, all four discs. Or was it $5? It was a birthday present, I don't think she told me the exact number. And to think I thought it was only a movie.
Have Fun

All of GaoGaiGar and all of Big O seasons 1 and 2 for 50 bucks each.

They're also the only anime I don't regret buying.
