Not meaning to pressure anyone, but the s-CRY-ed set is now down to 16. They have sold half of their supply since last night.

Just got back from visiting five Dollar Generals; two had stuff, three looked like they hadn't received a shipment yet. Stuff that's not on the list already:

Mobile Suit Gundam F91 - The Motion Picutre (Special Edition 2-Disc)
Argentosoma vol 5
Witch Hunter Robin vol 3 (why can't I find vol 2? ahh!)
Stratos 4 vol 2

There were two other series that aren't on the list yet that I saw Taturo(?) and one I can't recall, but I don't remember specific volumes. Didn't see any s-cry-ed or Bebop though. =( It was all Bandai stuff it seems.

Thanks, added!

Wish I could've gotten a copy of WHR Vol. 3 (I need 3 & 5 to complete my collection). It sucks having gaps!

I think the 100 minimum is for wholesale orders, which are different from retail orders...

I also believe that the wholesale price is cheaper. Search for any item in this sale at dvdpricesearch.com, and you'll find a price that's a few dollars cheaper... they must be hooked into the wholesale pricing. Also, I noticed that their 10 dollar Scryed set is in the Scryed collection listing at dvdpricesearch... not sure what that means, but I picked one up for 10 bucks. If WHR and Love Hina are also the complete collections, they were limited and probably not available in most stores anymore (though the packaging stunk). Also, Eatman and Haunted Junction are OOP, IIRC.

Eh, I picked up the five available volumes of Overman King Gainer (I was going to wait, but then remembered that Bandai likes to put things in funky looking boxes when they collect them), the Love Hina Collection, the Jubei Chan collection, Eatman, Haunted Junction, and took a chance on the Scryed box.

edited to add: The upcoming Love Hina collection only collects the series, not the movies, so if the BuyriteDVD set is the older limited one that collects them all, that's a good deal. Despite the packaging.

10 are now available, it does seem to be the complete set. Not sure if the guy who called in had more accurate numbers than the website, but hey, take the chance.

Well, the place is a wholesale site, so large orders are not unusual... especially at that price. Still, I'm surprised that large of an order didn't wipe out their whole stock, since I never saw stock at over 70 or so...

Yes, I realize that. It wasn't a bad "Christ." It was moreso a wow "Christ."

I'm also mystified as to how anyone even ordered over 100 of them considering there were only like 26-29 last night or something? And the site says they still have 9? Unless this all occurred before SBJ made his post last night?

Can someone tell me why DVDPriceSearch has all the items at BuyRiteDvd for less than what they actually are? Is there a coupon I'm not aware of or something? For example Love Hina is $39 (really $50). HOW DO WE KNOW THIS S-CRY-ED IS THE COMPLETE COLLECTION?! AHHH! THERE'S ONLY 7 LEFT, PANIC!

Edit: Six left. I just bought one. I'm trusting dvdPriceSearch and posters at animeondvd, as they both say it's the complete collection.

Here was fujishig's theory, which I believe to be correct. I noticed that, too. This makes sense:

So, wait if you spend over 100($) or 100(units) you get wholesale prices? At least I understand now. Only 2 of them left now. Man, if this is really $10 this is easily the best deal I've ever seen.

Edit: "This item is no longer available". Now the waiting game begins.

Bought Infinite Ryvius last night and decided to take a chance on the s-CRY-ed set today after seeing that post on AOD. Way too good a deal to pass up on either of them..

It's out of stock now. Don't worry. It might not even be the Complete Collection... The description was extremely vague. It could just be the box for all we know.

I definitely understand the feeling of hating gaps. I'm missing FMP! 6, Rahxephon 7, and WHR 2. I can get you a vol 3 if you need one though.

Oh Okay, i just find it hard to believe there's a complete collection of it for 20 bucks.. (though i might take a risk on the Outlaw Star Collection.. though i really don't like Buy-Rite)

Oh, no sir it wasn't $20 bucks, it was $10. ^.^

This is why nobody thought it was the complete collection. I'd really like to pick up that Outlaw Star one too, but I was broke a week ago, and with all these deals, I'm now screwed. You've gotta know when to throw in the towel.

Gaps are the worst. I'll check around a few places first, and if I can't find one myself, I just might shoot you an e-mail. And I'll keep a lookout for any of the aforementioned titles as well.

Well, at least it was only $10 if it turns out that it's not actually the Complete Collection. I guess we'll just wait and see!
