I've ordered from DVDPacific before, and everything was fine. But i put in a order for Divergence Eve - Complete Collection as soon as the deal was posted. My oder status still says New Order. Not sure whats going one with the order.
As long as Shawne(the top guy at RS) doesn't run out of stock, the deal will last until next Thursday morning when he comes out with a new weekly selection. He usually updates the selection around 10AM EST on Thursday, but you should put your order in on Wednesday night to be safe.

There's 3 tins and yes they'll hold all the DVDs. The first two come with soundtracks but I'm not sure what the pack-in for the third one is going to be.

Please note that the Kimba, The White Lion collection is English dub only, no original Japanese track...

I'd be all over it if this weren't the case.

I was figuring it would be the 3rd OST. Or at least I was hoping it would be.

The limited edition will include Fullmetal Alchemist Original Soundtrack III.

Can anyone give me some suggestions on a couple of Rightstuf"s Weekly Specials?

I'm thinking about Gilgamesh v.1 with box. Is it any good?
What about Ghost Talkers Daydream?
Anyone seen Fantastic Children, or Godannar?

Any recommendations would be appreciated.

Best,

Well the deal on Divergence Eve: Complete Collection is over. I went to check my order status agian (which for some reason still hasn't even went into "in process" yet and i put the orderin on monday 6/12) and now it says its for $25. Thats such bullshit, i sent them a nasty email telling them to either change it back to $13 or cancel my order. I think what they were trying to do, is they realized they were taking to much of a loss on it and tried to wait out the sale and jack the price back up.

Same thing happened to me. This is not cool. If this doesn't get cancelled or changed back I will be very upset. I also sent them an email about this.

Personally, I never buy Vol. 1 + boxes anymore because a complete collection is bound to come out in the future. I cannot personally recommend any of those titles as I have not seen any of them -- A few don't even sound familiar to be honest. A few good places to look if you are unsure about series or particular DVDs are here (naturally) and AnimeOnDVD. I think the reviews are always more than helpful when making decisions on purchasing DVDs.

This is exactly why I'm always hesitant to post any deals from DVD Pacific in this thread. That's why even when they have a cheaper price, you will not find them listed in the cheapest thinpacks and box sets section. I'm very sorry to hear that you're having a bad experience. Others have told me otherwise which is why I went ahead and posted the deal. I hope your order gets fixed.

From here on out, I will not be posting deals from DVD Pacific in here, no matter how good they seem (I guess that's an automatic indication that something funny is going on). When I went for a good deal there a few years ago, security was breached and I had to terminate my account by calling them. It was a pain and made me really paranoid.

And this was supposed to be their customer appreciation sale. What a crock of shit. I'm sorry that I posted the deal.

Nooo--Don't be sorry. It's not like you could've possibly known. I wouldn't have even guessed that something like that would happen. That really is just flat-out shitty, though. I'm sure no one blames you.

I've only seen part of Gilgamesh... it's a post apocalyptic story with goth-like teenagers, but it comes highly recommended by a few posters on AOD. Based on a pretty old manga by Ishinomori (the same guy that created Kikaider and cyborg 009).

For 10 bucks, I jumped on the Godanner volume 1 with box, despite trying to hold off for a thinpak release. I figure the extras are worth it. It's an over-the-top Giant Robot show featuring a married couple. It's a lot like Gravion, though I think it's much better. Not for everyone, though. I'm just a huge fan of Super Robots (Mazinger/Tranzor Z, Getta Robo, etc.) You can only get up to volume 5 at the DDD sale, though, since that's all that's out so far.

Also, for those that bought volume 1 plus box of older shows, only to see a thinpak version come out... Rightstuf also has a ton of ADV disks for only 7.99 in their bargain bin (separate from their weekly specials). It probably doesn't quite beat out the price of the thinpak set if you're just starting a series, but if you're just trying to fill out a half empty box, or if you want the extras, it's a great deal. Picked up the two remaining volumes of Peacemaker I needed.

I did this with Aquarian Age since I already had Vol. 1 + art box, but unfortunately, while Vol. 3 was not a floater, the disc was somehow scratched to hell... and not in just one area. I had to send it back. Normally I just try to deal, but I'm so anal about my collection, and if I for some reason strongly disliked the series, it would be really hard to sell it with that disc. Plus I didn't want to have to watch the final volume to make sure it was playable (it sure didn't look like it). I've gotten a lot more lenient over the years, but not that much.

All of my other stuff came in excellent condition, though. The only other bummer was that for some reason, all of my Gungrave covers had the security sticker attached to them -- on every top. So part of the foil covers has been removed from the top of every one of my Gungrave covers. I hate stuff like that, but for $50 for the whole series I can't complain too much.

I've got a trick that you can try next time you encounter this problem. Take an exacto knife and cut the security sticker across the top of the case. Then pull the plastic from the case outward and peel the sticker downward from the top of the case. You shouldn't lose any part of the cover if you employ this method.

A few last minute box set suggestions at DDD(prices reflect the discount)-

Chobits Thinpak Collection $53.23
Fruits Basket $47.99[backorder]
Heat Guy J 1-3 $19.20[Rightstuf sometimes sells a bundle of 4-7 for $40]
Last Exile Thinpak $52.23
Pretear $19.19[backorder]
SuperGALS! $23.99[backorder].

I would advise against R.O.D. the TV. It's a great show, but I would hold out for the eventual thinpak version.

That's a good idea. We should compile a list of places that you shouldn't buy from. I would put DVD Pacific and DVD Soon at the top of the list.

Thanks for the tip! I've tried a few different methods, but only with minimal success. I'll keep that in mind for the future, though. I'll try to add those items when I get back from walking my dog, too.

Oh, no way man. That was a great deal. Here's the response I got, hopefully it'll get resolved:

"Hello,



It is a simple problem that we are already in the process of correcting, all titles in stock and filled will still be shipped at the sale price.





Regards,

Jessica"

And what is up with ADV lately with their sales?! These aren't sales! They keep raising the price! I always looked forward to these things, and they've been pretty lackluster lately. =( If anyone's interested in picking up single volumes from ADV check out Rightstuf's Bargain Bin; they just added a bunch of new single volumes (Peacemaker, Pretear, etc.) about a week ago. Hopefully, they'll add Chrono Crusade soon because I sure can't count on ADV to drop their prices; as they keep rising. XD

Oh, and just wanted to say thanks to justbarelymovin and everyone who contributes to this thread. I've been keeping up with this for many months and just wanted to say keep up the good work.

My DVDPacific info looks good. It just says "Fully Processed" or some such thing for the proper amount. Funny thing is it lists it as "3" items.

Yeah i got an email back from them, that my item was fixed to the right price. I'll give them a second chance and order from them again. But this was my first time i've had a problem from them.

I really want to get Azumanga Daioh at that price, but I really want the volume 1 with the artbox and I don't think rightstuf carries it.
