Rare Anime?

Do you guys often find that you're into an anime so rare or old that you can't find it anywhere (online shops like amazon, rightstuf, etc, or in stores)? I'm asking because I found a pretty nice deal on an anime I really like and I'm a little worried about waiting to purchase it in the event it gets sold. It's from 2004/2005 though, so it's not like the demand is high. What are your experiences with these types of things?

The older the series - and less popular - the harder it will be to find them.

Shurato and probably Samurai Warriors(I think that's the name).

Let me guess, there are five of 'em and they wear colorful Samurai Armors?

@ Puddingman. Yeah, the rarer the anime, the harder to get. Still, if the anime that you like is so rare as in not very popular and nobody knows it but you, you may not worry too much as the chance that it will be sold is slim. Still, I don't know if the store decides to sent it somewhere.

My advice: to be save, get it as fast as you can, but don't push your wallet too much.

Thanks guys. I'm looking to find Air, a cheap non s.a.v.e. edition (to avoid the tainted box art ). I've had my eye on this one seller for about a month and so far its been okay. Thanks for settling my mind a little bit guys.

If your talking about the TV series then the S.A.V.E edition box art doesn't have the green banner, but if it is the movie your talking about then you'd be hard pressed to find a copy of the older funimation or ADV release.

When I see a good deal, I just get them. I brought an entire collection over 50 series of the 1990-2000 anime.

all the best to you

There are also anime that come in limited release.

For example, Legend of the Galactic Heroes is hugely popular in Asia and is possibly the longest OVA in anime history with over 110 episodes. While it was later shown on TV multiple time the release have been limited. The original OVA release is impossible to find and a collector's item.
