Fate/Kaleid Prisma Illya OST was awesome.

Especially the track Shoujo Shinka, which is actually the remix of EMIYA.

I'm really tempted to get that F/Z BD Boxset 1 coming in November with the Eng. dubs. Anyone here watch it with dubs?

I watch things in sub, then dub. I just prefer a dub option, but even if it didn't have a dub option, I would have picked sub. I got my copy ready already.

I'm ordering it whenever I put my next order in with rightstuf. Trying to save it as a shipping padder for an order that would otherwise only be like, $25 or something.

Something that's $400 cheaper than the import... what a great discount. The Einzbern show was dropped to protect the import.

Wait, they cut the Einzbern specials? Now I'm reconsidering. It might be $300 less than the import, but it's still $150 for half the series. That's about 3x more than any Funimation or Sentai series.

That's the same words that people say as a reason for hating Aniplex's prices, but that would be a different topic and story (not really allowed anywhere here or it would end up being flame bait [threads of ANN when Aniplex releases something is proof, even Kara no Kyoukai and Madoka release threads have it]).

Ok, so I want to buy this series but I have a few questions (as an American release). I remember when it first came out they had a SUB only blu ray release for $300.

Now I understand they have a S1 and S2 DUB/SUB release for $150+ each. My question is, why are these so expensive? I understand that it somehow relates to Japanese consumers importing American releases because they are cheaper. But I would like a more thorough or other explanations.

This is a 25 episode series that they are trying to sell for $300+. I don't understand what they are thinking. I have never ever seen prices like this for anime series' in America.

On principle, I am not going to buy it but I am scared they will not rerelease it at a reasonable price and it the price tag will be even more insane later down the road and I will inevitably regret not buying it

EDIT: This literally makes no sense to me. I'm currently purchasing/have purchased a bunch of series that I downloaded (because I like hard copies) and nothing has come close to this price. I''m even picking up some blu ray releases for less than $50. Hell, the blu ray releases of the ENTIRE F/SN will only set you back $70 What makes this series so special?

Urobuchi... And Ryuunosuke. Well I'll ask a friend who likes Aniplex.

The only thing I know is that the demand is inflexible so they set the price high.

It's expensive because they need to make profit. Other companies make money else where so they can keep their prices low, Aniplex is not one of those. It's the worth money though, if you ask me. Great series that you can enjoy every time you watch it. And tragedy stories like this must be watched more than once to fully appreciate them.

Wow... are they really selling Fate/Zero for $300 USD? That's like... $330 AUD atm.

Thank goodness for cheaper Australian releases. Madman is releaseing S1 of Fate Zero next year in February for $70 AUD (~$64 USD). I'm guessing S2 will also be the same price.

http://www.madman.com.au/catalogue/v...r-s-box-bluray

But then again, the Madman's release doesn't contain any special extra stuff.

I don't understand why they need to charge $300+ to make a profit when other countries are charging half the price.

To hell with them. I'll keep my pirated fansub copy. I'm all for supporting the industry but with that kind of price tag, this segment of the industry obviously doesn't want support from people like me.

UDON will be publishing English versions of the F/SN art books (based on the Réalta Nua version of the game).

For anyone who bought the English Fate/Zero blu-rays and got the Weiss Schwarz promos with them, PM me if you'd be willing to sell them and for how much.
