From the main thread...a few anime releases mixed in

Sci-Fi Extravaganza: Save up to 55% on over 600 Sci-fi DVDs and Blu-ray Discs @ Amazon.com | Expires 11/23/09

...Amazon.com has an interesting way of defining of what's considered Sci-fi. :sweat:

RE: Gankutsuou Collector's artbox vs. Gankutsuou complete collection (Geneon's artbox plus individual 6 volumes wrapped together).

Note, I am also an Artbox collector. BUT ....

My understanding is that there is no difference between the individual released Gankutsuou Vol 1 artbox versus Gankutsuou's complete collection artbox with the exception of the cardboard filling. There are no bonus items.

I bought the original volume 1 artbox several years ago. It didn't come with anything special.

You should have bought the entire collection at $27, kept the collector's artbox, kept volume 1, and sold off volume 2 3 4 5 6. That way essentially you didn't have to pay for the artbox at all. Or you could have made a few bucks (mathematically) rather than simply buying the Gankutsuou artbox w/ Volume 1 alone.

Essentially, the only thing extra your getting by going your route is the added disposable cardboard filler.

Not sure where it is 13.99, but you can pre-order the Viridian Blu-ray for $11.99 from Amazon.

It looks like it may be via BestBuy.com. The release date for March is still tentative.

It's a pretty good deal for the series. TRSI has marked down quite a few Viz Media boxsets for the Weekly Specials.

Don't forget folks, for those of you shopping Best Buy...
That store does qualify for the Bing Cashback program.
I think you can order online, get your sale price + Bing Cashback, and choose in store pickup to avoid shipping charges.

Can you please point me towards that? If it was there it seems it's there no longer, as they are no longer listed on the "Stores" portion of their website.

Try this link...
Check the top or bottom of the page and click on one of the Best Buy links for Bing Cashback.
The page seems to change often, but through several attempts, there was still a Best Buy link every time.

Sorry about that! I forgot this was a "general" thread for various retailers.

It does have a different SKU than the $17.49 title, but bestbuy matched it in-store without a problem (I purchased it at $17.49 earlier in the week). The $13.99 title is available for store pickup if you haven't purchased it already.

I was planning to wait for the re-release, but March is still a long-ways away.

Okay. I think I remember the BB SKU issue when the release came out.

Akira Blu-ray is $24.49 @ Amazon.com right now.
(essentially matching Best Buy's price with their 30% off sale. So the parice may not last long.)

Tsubasa S1 Blu-Ray $31.99 @ Amazon (not bad for 26 episodes). That's cheaper than the DVD set. Release date Nov 17th. I grabbed it, hopefully the second series comes out soon.
