TRSi refuses to take the dvds back and give me a replacement cause i missed the 90-Day-Return-Chance.

What can i do now? Contacting Funimation directly?

I am pissed off
You can try to contact FUNimation and see what happens. Keep in mind that TRSI is not really under obligation to take a year old return (regardless of defect).

I know the Best buy anime sale is over, but a friend of mine is still having trouble getting their shipping fee taken care of. I walked them through what i did, but the person told them:

You can only get free shipping if the site claimed that the item was in-stock in a store and that turned out to be wrong. Did I just get someone who doesn't know about the promotion?

I'm thinking that if they placed the order it was because the item wasn't in store. is there a way around this or are they stuck? They tried multiple calls, and no success. I had no trouble whatsoever. What should they say exactly?

I know but i thought "Why open a brandnew product yet?".

I was too lazy to watch the anime dvds cause i already know the anime. But now i have big problems.

I wrote an email to funimation...i dont have big hopes q_q

Tell them to try emailing BB via their contact form on their site. I received a positive response to my refund request within two hours.

That doesn't sound right. Regular price from BB should be $17.99. If you gotten the price override, it should be around $9 instead. The price of this release has dropped quite a bit especially with auction sites...

...because it may be damaged / defective or have incorrect or missing discs, so you've now learned.

Nice fees. I "lost" about 100 Dollar cause of the damaged discs. It was of course my fault that i didnt open the DVD Box Sets ealier to report it...

I thought if its sealed/brandnew, the production was OK and somebody was looking for the machines or the products if something wasnt alright...

Well, now i know it...

B1G1 Sale on Select Geneon Titles (Mostly Singles, Older Catalog Titles) @ TWEC Stores (B&M / YMMV)
It appears that this sale is still ongoing though selection(s) may have dwindled quite a bit.

The other new minor promotion is Save Up to 50% off on Dragon Ball Z titles. Example: Season 1 to 4 are $24.99 each.

The singles were reviewed here by John. I would take a look if you haven't done so already. If you don't like or hate harem anime, I would pass on this. If you enjoy or really like harem anime, you may want to give a try. The singles are also supposed to include a fold-up poster. Vol.6 artbox includes a Sia panties.

I just watched shuffle! a bit (zapping through the episodes) and its a little bit confusing to me. Angels and devils and a boy.

Ok its a harem anime and theres fanservice and stuff but it was hard for me to get the story and to understand the characters.

The jokes were meh and the fanservice was ok...isnt the reference a hentai game for the PC?

At the end its getting much better with drama and development but all in all the anime couldnt chain me.

Thanks for the review-links.

went back to FYE today and the promotion is "50% off select Geneon titles." the ones applicable (which are various singles but not anything special) have the blue sign behind them.

Goodbye Anime Insider.
(check out ToplessRobot or ANN for more info)
Seriously, i think we should start a "Most Expensive Places To Buy Anime" thread and see if that will help solve the buying crisis.

All joking aside, I'm sure we'll all miss this magazine, which has helped our hobby grow over the years.
But for people like us, who buy anime, where do we draw the line? My living room floor is covered with anime right now! How much do i need to keep buying?!

ok, done now. Continue with the deals! I think i have a square foot of space left for that City Hunter Season 3 i need to find (as well as anything else CH related!).

Print media is on the rapid decline. This is rather sad, but not surprising.

That's why people should try to restrain themselves (or not). I know many overspent with the Best Buy anime clearance sale. Unfortunately overspending is almost part of the hobby.

As for City Hunter, I still need to find the last season at a reasonable price...

Thankfully i spent VERY LITTLE (in comparison to others) on the BB sale...i think my total added up to about $300 w/my keep list being DBZ Seasons 3-8, Freedom (BR), Moribito, Yu Yu Hakusho Seasons 1-4, Girl Who Leapt Through Time, Pet Shop of Horrors, Gurren Lagann Part 1 LE, Death Note Vol. 8 and 9 LEs, Code Geass Part 2 LE, Claymore Vol. 1 w/artbox + 2, 3, and 4, D.Grayman Season 1, Death Angel Dokuro Chan, DBGT Seasons 1 & 2, Hellsing Ultimate Vol. 1 LE, Berserk Remastered, Ghost Hunt Seasons 1 & 2, Akira (BR), and Afro Samurai (BR) So im good for a while (tho i always say that and continue to buy more anime..hence the addictiveness of this damn hobby :-D )

Is "End Of Evangelion" that expensive and rare for a new sealed one?
