Eureka Seven Collector's Artbox??????

^Thanks for the Mushi vol. 6 price update. Unfortunately more money expended to complete the collection--yet I haven't even seen one single episode. Blind purchase due to youtube clips.



Eureka Seven Collector's Artbox??????


And I know this has actually been brought up before because I asked, and it was answered I believe in the December Anime Bargain thread which seems to have disappeared off the face of the planet.

Eureka Seven has so many Artboxes with someone already clarified there being only two true sturdy collector's artboxes. Unfortunately I forgot which ones.

Which ones were they? Was it Volume 7 and 12??? (I finally got my 12 Days of Christmas Eureka Seven special, and now on the look out for the collector's artboxes)

each vol. of eureka seven has a special edition box set that comes with a t-shirt, a manga, and the dvd. The Vol. 1 and Vol. 7 art boxes are the sturdiest and contain a t-shirt, soundtrack, manga, and the dvd :-D

Hey WTK would you happen to know if volume 5 and 6 of Trinity Blood are also $5.99? All 6 volumes for ~$36 would be pretty nice.

Vol.5 and 6 (VC) are not $5.99.

Plus, they'll have (at least the FYE's store manager told me) another buy 1 get everything half off anime day somewhere in April; likely the last week of April.

That's too bad. I can't imagine having no TWEC stores around. We have two Suncoast, one FYE, and one Sam Goody (converting to a FYE) here in the Twin Cities.

Personally I have nothing that I needed from this reported B1G1 Geneon sale. However if it's true, it should help those who are still looking for select Geneon volumes/boxsets.

I'm heading over to FYE later today to finish up my last two trade-in bags. I'll ask the manager about the Geneon promotion and I'll post my findings. I'm hoping that it starts tomorrow(FYE usually starts their anime promotions on a Thursday).

It starts tomorrow for my local stores. It may go for around 3 weeks.

This title was not included in the latest ADV rescheduled release dates. Therefore for the time being, this title is delayed indefinitely until ADV announces something different.

I think there's still one in the Pasadena area, MAYBE... But I never go out there for anything, and I don't really remember how to get to the mall over there. It's a little sketchy. Other than that, every FYE/Suncoast I used to go to has been shut down.

Last night my boyfriend picked up the box set of Bleach (volume 1) for $35 at Walmart. I thought this was a good deal, because I checked the MSRP value which was at $89, a company online was selling it for $141, and each dvd individually in the set is $20 each. I was so surprised they had it at Walmart to begin with, let alone at that great price!

It is a good deal, but it's not the limited edition version that has the wallet chain.

justbarelymovin, isn't there still a suncoast in the Burbank mall? I don't know where you live, but I know the Glendale Galleria one closed down a little while ago. There's also one in the Santa Anita mall.

I love limited editions, but I'm not a huge fan of the Viz ones. I bought the Bleach set with the chain mainly because I thought that was the only one that was going to be available... I would've jumped on the Walmart version instead had I known. Most of their LEs (Inuyasha sets, Naruto sets) seem to be the regular set plus some trinket that I won't ever use. At least the other LEs come with a manga, CD, or oversized T-shirt...

Just to let you know, the sale was already in effect today at the downtown Chicago FYE. I got Disgaea V2 and V3, Fate/Stay Night V4 and V5 all for $57.xx after the member discount. Plus I got the card for $5 comeback bucks.

Mine still had a good selection of Geneon stuff.

The promo didn't work automatically in the register, the manager had to go up stairs to confirm that this was true, so maybe they put out all the signs a bit early.

That means that your local store got the signage out a day early. The discounts should come down automatically at the register.

Your local FYE store has 2 floors? That's kind of interesting.

So the Buy 1 Get on free Geneon thing is true? Will they make me pay full price? My FYE has Gannkutsu for $14.99 each. Think they'll let me slide with that price?

Also- are there any metro area michiganders around? The Suncoast near me disappered, and I don't know what happened tothem at all. (Dearborn)
