"Product Availability - In Stock and Available"
It means that they still have plenty of copies. Copies from 300 or so~ and below usually display a counter.

I've seen it and I suggest you listen to the reviews on this one. It was a truly terrible series.

It does not include an artbox.

This mega-bundle contains all 7 volumes of the Read or Die TV series, plus both ROD TV soundtracks 1 and 2!

Can't recommend this series highly enough. I'm surprised I don't hear more praise for this wonderful series. Unfortunately, a lot of people seem to cast this show aside because they can't handle the unique art style, but I like it very much. The story is amazing, you won't be disappointed.

Wound up putting in an order of mostly soundtracks and a few of the 2-3 disc series. (was really hoping that Starship Operators would be one of the $5/disc series, but alas it was not to be)

Heads up for anyone looking at soundtracks: there were a few that wound up cheaper to order from Wherehouse/Secondspin and Amazon, so it's worth checking beforehand. (Wherehouse also has track samples for more of the CDs that I'd checked, so it might be worthwhile if you're wanting to get a feel for what they sound like before buying)

Yeah, it's certainly a bummer. There's always the chance that someone still has it in the cart. A copy of the Requiem box came back in stock, but then my cart cleared and it was then back OOS .

I got it during the first Geneon Abundance sale and I would have paid full price for it in a heartbeat after I saw it.
I decided to go with Mermaid Forest as I'm a sucker for mature storytelling. Certainly sounds like a good deal.

Oops....look like I threw some money away.

When I saw that Yuri Lowenthal voiced the main character, I decided to take a chance. In case anyone doesn't already know, Yuri voices Sasuke (Naruto) plus many, many more. I like his work.

I honestly don't know why everyone hates Cybuster it's a pretty good series at least for that price.

I guess I will find out how terrible it is whenever I get to this. It will be sitting in my backlog for a long time now.

I was fortunately that I was able to get Last Exile at TRSI! I just finished the series 2 nights ago and I really enjoyed it very much. I looked it up at TRSI and was surprised that they still have them in stock!

I started and finished Blue Submarine No.6, Crest of the Stars, and Jubei Chan last week. I started Utena and will start Banner of the Stars soon.

Another Geneon series that I would highly recommend is X TV Series:Remix(not to be confused with the movie). This is easily an A series from CLAMP and is well worth $50. You better hurry though, there's only a couple of copies of Volume 1 currently available.

I would agree with SBJ with this series. One of the best CLAMP series that has been made.

It's already on my list - very, very long list. Right now, I'm watching My-HiME - it's not exactly my cup of tea. I still have Ergo Proxy and Samauri Champloo on my Netflix list. I'm bit worry about Ergo Proxy that Netflix listed its disc #5 "very long wait".

You can always watch the Volume 5 episodes on youtube(I just checked and they are currently uploaded on youtube). Sorry that you're not digging My-HiME. I rather enjoyed that series and it has one of my all-time favorite closing songs.

Did the series Stellvia ever come with an artbox to hold all eight volumes?

Although I found this, I highly doubt that tin can fit all eight standard DVD black cases. Or is this more analogous to something like the ROD Volume 1 + artbox version?

THe tin/box for Stellvia came with double-sided thin packs inside, if I recall.

  • Burst Angel (Bakuretsu Tenshi): Complete Collection w/OVA (Viridian) - 6/10
  • Desert Punk: Complete Collection (Viridian) - 7/1
  • Rumbling Hearts: Complete Collection (Viridian) - 8/19
  • Samurai 7: Complete Collection (Viridian) - 7/1
Based on the above Quote by WTK, it looks like Funimation is going to those double-sided thin packs (like stelllvia's) for their Viridian Collections.
