I’m not a big anime DVD buyer. In fact, I’ve never bought an anime DVD until today (tonight). Now that I think about it, I’m not a very big buyer of DVDs in general. Well, that anime DVD drought ended when I saw a bitchin’ deal on the front page of RightStuf.
They called it the “Geneon’s Bountiful Bargains!” sale. Basically, you can get 10 Geneon “things” for $50, or 25 things for $100. The things range from soundtrack cds to anime dvds and even some live action movies. Doing the math, getting 10 items means that each item is $5. That’s cheap! One of the reasons I never bought anime DVDs was the price of DVDs. I decided to choose 10 things. I ended up ordering:
- Haibane Renmei DVD 1: New Feather
- Haibane Renmei DVD 2: Wings of Sorrow
- Haibane Renmei DVD 3: Bird of Freedom
- Haibane Renmei DVD 4: Day of Flight
- Niea Under 7 DVD 1: Poor Girl Blues
- Niea Under 7 DVD 2: Funky Water Blues
- Niea Under 7 DVD 3: Sayonara Blues
- Niea Under 7 DVD 4: Under Seven Blues
- Sakura Wars: The Movie
I’ve been hearing about comparisons between Haibane Renmei and Kamisama Kazoku for a while now, so I figured I should watch the series. I think I remember hearing good things about the Niea Under 7 anime too. I wanted to get the full series, since I hate having stuff unfinished.
Also, I bought Akira because I’ve never seen it before. Yeah, I know, I have an anime blog yet I’ve never seen Akira. I got Sakura Taisen the movie because there really has to be something behind jpmeyer’s obsession with Sakura Taisen. Or maybe not. But I figured for $5, it’s really no risk.
Stay tuned for reviews of these anime once I find some free time to watch them. If that ever happens…
Here’s the actual sales pitch thing if you’re interested:
Here’s the sweetest deal you may see this season! Until October 1st, take your pick from a wide selection of Geneon’s hottest DVD, CD, and UMD releases and pick them up en masse!
We’ve got two options available for you, get 10 great Geneon releases for $50 OR get 25 Geneon releases for $100! You don’t even have to work the numbers to see how much you can save! Plus, don’t forget that both offers will net you free economy shipping both in the US AND Canada (free shipping is based on the pre-coupon total, which is over the limit for both)!
Aside from the standard restrictions*, there is just one very important restriction to note: to use these coupons, you cannot have any other items in your cart aside from the items that qualify for the sale and you have to have the exact number of items for the coupon usage as well. In other words, if you’re looking to purchase a few other items along with the selections you get with the coupon, you’ll have to make a separate order. It’s just a minor thing, really! Finally, you cannot have duplicate items or multiple quantities of the same item in your cart – this is to keep one customer or a store from loading up on all of the available inventory for an item – fair for all!
This offer is available from now until October 1st, 2006! * Certain restrictions apply, see below for details.
