Well, it's not out of the ordinary for DDD's media mail shipping to arrive after two weeks time, so I would wait a little longer. I'm sure they've been swamped...

My more recent orders are taking a lot longer to get here, but they've been arriving one by one. I think the most important part is that they arrive at all.

If my order did get bumped up to DHL, would I have to be at home for it to arrive and sign off on it? I still haven't received my s-cry-ed set and i ordered the minute they were up.

Well i know UPS just leaves it at your door step if you aren't home (i don't know what DHL does, but maybe they do the same thing)

Yeah, that ticks me off. I live in a townhouse complex with about 45 other units. UPS left my $400 DDD order out in the open (while it was raining too i might add!). fortunately everything was kosher and it was still there when i got home from work

Haha i hate when they do that (I remember one time they left my order in the drive way.. MY DRIVE-WAY haha..) Yeah i don't care as long as nobody took it and as long as everything works (and in my case, everything gets to my doorstep)

That's what I get for posting late at night after next to no sleep the night before. I swear I read through the list twice and didn't see it, but everything was a blur, really. Good thing I've got vacation time coming up starting Friday. In other good news, the first day of my vacation will probably be spent putting together my new computer stuff I ordered from Newegg last night. $660 worth of stuff after rebates, but hopefully I'll be set for the next couple of years at least.

I also placed another order with BuyRite, where I managed to get the Geneshaft Complete Collection (they must have found a couple more) and the Please Teacher Collection (which has since gone up to $39.99). Also, after going to the Right Stuf item removal link provided by WTK, I didn't see the Azumanga Daioh box on the list. I checked and saw 1 in stock and managed to snag it along with some other stuff to get free shipping. I've really got to take a break from buying stuff, but these deals are too good to pass up. This month's thread is now bigger than the rest of this year's threads put together. Thanks from me (but not my wallet) to everyone for posting the deals and to justbarelymovin for maintaining the thread.

In my experience, DHL does not just leave the package like UPS does, but rather they leave a note saying that they have been there, and you have to sign it to say that you want them to leave it if no one is home. Then just leave it on your door and they'll leave the package when they come around the following day. That may or may not happen for you.

Thanks for some of the info guys. Yaeh, I hope that DHL is at least like UPS and leaves the item at my door as I have a little awning/cover there, but we're still expecting rain so I just hope that I am home..

Thanks for the post on the Azumanga box Skydog. I just noticed it as well, but it says sold out. I do hope that they get more in, or at least a few and I manage to snag it. If you guys see it, be sure to send me a PM perhaps please.

Divergence Eve is just hard to take seriously (and they're trying to play it that way) when all the female characters have tits larger than their heads. I'm into the fifth episode and it really is no better than it was in the first- the same old monster/robot bs. It's almost completely incomprehensible, and not very entertaining to boot. Every time the female characters have something to say they just pan up and down like a peep show. It's almost embarassing, and more than a little creepy.

A little too much fan service for my tastes.

Blue Gender: Complete Collection from Overstock

Looks like I missed it on Overstock. Put my email in case they ever restock. But is this the individual 8 DVD set with an art box? Or that compact DVD case that can hold all 8 DVDs?
Thanks

The one listed in Overstock.com should be the 8-DVD Collection, released in 2003 in a Collector's Box. The DVDs should be in keep cases. The newer release (released in 2005) should be the 9-DVD Collection which is available @ DDD for $36.29. I'm not too certain if this version is in keep cases as well.

As long as the discs are okay, I can't complain too much. I was expecting something worse, so I'm pretty satisfied!
I had two floaters in my Ryvius box, 5 got scratched up pretty bad, i may have to return it

The newer version comes in what would best be described as a book shaped package. There's a plastic clip on the side that locks all of the "pages" together and once it's open you can flip through the pages easily. It's only about a couple of inches thick, too, thinner than a thinpak would be. Pretty nifty design, IMO.

WTK, I love you too! You're absolutely awesome. Got in on the Azumanga Daioh box plus dvd 2, 4, and 5. I just wish that they had 3. I decided since they have plenty of 6 that i'd get it at a later date.

Probably late to ask, but can you use the crazy clearance sale code with the bargain bin?
