The Anime and Manga Special Offers Thread

There are always special offers available in various stores both on and off-line, so we felt it was about time we had a thread for them. This is that thread.

Here you can post any special offers you have discovered for anime or manga products, either online or in your local stores. Please give some details about the offer, particularly any special terms and conditions. No need to go over the top -- if the offer is online, you can link to the store making the offer.

Note that the aim of this thread is to spread the word about special offers that are likely to increase the number of people who actually support the anime and manga industries, that provides us with these great shows and stories, by spending real money. Any mention of bootleg products, or stores found to be peddling such things, in this thread will be deleted and may earn the poster a short ban. Please make sure what you are posting is a legitimate special offer.

Clearly anything mentioned in this thread is highly likely to be licensed so you must NOT post anything about fan-translation related items.

not quite sure on the details, but from what it looks like you can get 25 DVDs or CDs for 100$. this is a HUGE bargain, better not miss out.

you can check the details here.

supplies might be limited. i think some of the DVDs may be released soon in box sets, maybe thats why the large sale.

Supplies are limited - they actually go up and down each day - some days all of Last Exile is there, some days it's not - if some DVDs from a series are there but not others you might keep checking back until all the ones you want are present.

Can you tell I'm exceptionally jealous that I'm broke until after the first of the month?

No, unfortunately I just started taking college classes again - so unfortunately I'm just having to suck it up and watch this sale go by. There were plenty of things I wanted, Serial Experiments Lain, Tsukihime, Last Exile, Hellsing, Trigun, soundtracks, etc.

I'm glad you posted something about it though, I meant to and forgot, I'd have felt bad if the end of the month had gone by and no one mentioned it.

I was hoping to get the CCS complete set, but they only have the bargain on the hacked TV version... kusu... ;_;

The list is a bit lacking, but still a good bargain nonetheless. Thanks for the find!

That's because CCS is in a separate sale. The entire uncut series (18 DVDs) is selling for $80.

Let's see...I own Haibane Renmei and Serial experiment Lain. I am not all that interested in starship operators but I may buy it if it is eligible for this but it is not. Battle Athletes victory is not eligible for this bargain and Maria-sama is not even licensed!
For such a long list yet I did not find even one that I want to buy! Now I need a good cry.

Most of those who placed their orders on friday in other places say their orders are backordered. If you placed one today, don't expect it for a week at least. (Yes, you wasted money if you didnt select free shipping.)

Bah, most of what I want from geneon isn't eligible... I can only come up with 7... Most of the stuff that is, I either have or I'm not interested in... I could go with melody of oblivion and mermaid's forest for the 10 for 50 deal though. Seems the complete series for both are eligible. I dropped them when they were licensed, so it's a good time to finish them off.

Though the 50 might be better spent on Ichigo Mashimaro... I can get vol 1-3 for that with free shipping at another site. Sure it's only 3 dvds vs 10, but if it's something I'd rather have...

Well, I'll think about it...

I had a problem coming up with 10 DVDs too. I'm conserving my money because of all the releases coming up like Ergo Proxy, Hellsing Ultimate, Paradise Kiss. Shana, Moon Phase, Trinity Blood....

Not to mention that you really can't assemble a boxset without going to another site to order vol. 1 plus box.

Then just order 2+ and buy the box separately. It still does not kill the deal. Also, with a lot of these, there is no 1+box or the 1+box is completely oop.

Yes. That would be because, if you didn't notice, this is a firesale/warehouse clearance. Trigun was on it last week and appears to have mostly sold out already.

However you might check back later - volumes of Last Exile and Paranoia Agent were both on the list one day, then off the list for the next two, and then back on afterwards.
