You know what's hilarious - WTK, you were actually speaking to hiccup regarding Azumanga Daioh - I thought you were speaking to everyone and referring to the S-cry-ed mis-priced box on BuyriteDVD that has been discussed at much length in this thread (the "you know what").

I went to BuyriteDVD and they had one copy back in stock and I purchased it.

So thanks even though that's not what you meant, and sorry to Hiccup, I wasn't trying to screw up your search for Azumanga Daioh. I guess I looked like a total tool trying to scoop you on the DVD purchase - I'm glad it worked out for you though!

Wow, that's interesting, considering they realized that it had been a misprice. Lucky you! Hope it works out!

New Rightstuf weekly special: Gatchaman: Collector's Edition (Discs 1-8) - $34.99

Don't know much about the series, but 48 episodes for $35 seems like a pretty good deal to me.

Updated. I really want to bite on that, but I want to see if they're going to post anything else I want to order first.

That's not in the collectors boxes (which I believe come with an extra 3rd disk with each 2 disk set), right?

Of the RightStuf's Weekly Specials, here are two uncommon anime that may interest some people:
Read the links for more details & reviews!

- Here is Greenwood DVD (Hyb) - $14.99:
AOD Review & Info. from ANN.
This is a six-episode series (OVA) that displays the progression of the housemates in a dormitory. This series has its own hilarious to touching moments as well!

- My Beautiful Girl Mari DVD (Hyb) - $5.99:
AOD Review & Info. from ANN.
Grand Prix Winner, Best Feature in 26th Annecy International Animated Film Festival (France - 2002). One of the first Korean animes to make it here in the U.S. "The film represents a way of life which may be lost, drowned out by cell phones, the Internet and stock exchanges (Source)." This movie is intended for all ages.

I think that it's time to finally pick up Berserk at RS for $80, especially since Media Blasters was excluded from the last DDD sale. I'm ashamed to admit that I let such a high profile title slide for so long, but I'm about to correct that.

While that's a great price for the boxset (and the box is awesome), the alpha cased box is at a cheaper MSRP (89.99) and thus can be had for much cheaper (one of the first times I've seen Bestbuy.com at near the top of the dvdpricesearch list). Depends on whether you care about the packaging, since the disks are the same. You can get it for under 60, though I'm not sure what the DDD price is, since they STILL haven't added MB titles back to the site...

Based on Google's cached searches, these are the prices before the 20% off sale:
On 5/17/06: DDD had the Berserk: Alpha Case Box for $53.96
On 5/14/06: DDD had the Berserk: Premium Collection for $83.98
It remains to be seen that if the DDD will list the two titles back to the site!

Thanks for the tip. I already know about the alpha case and I really dislike it[I must have the box]. Plus, now that I've cleared the $50 free shipping barrier, I might just have to pick up a few other items.

I have actually purchased the Berserk: Alpha Case Box @ Best Buy for about $40 after 30% off coupon from a while back. But I would have to agree with you that the alpha case design is one of the worst ever. The dvd case manages to stuff 6 dvds (2 on each side and two on the middle flap). The most annoying thing about it is that the dvds overlap. But at $40 I couldn't really argue that much for an awsome series! And like Sweet Baby James said, Berserk is a must-own series for anime fans!

I agree, Berserk is one of the best series I've ever laid eyes upon. I got lucky a long time ago and got the Alpha box off ebay for around $30 brand new. And yeah, I hate how the discs are packaged in it but what can you do, especially for that price.
