    Default Pricong confusion

    hi; iv.e decided to explor the world of neon Genesis howeverv when I wen to the web site for HMV (in the UK) I came across the platinum edition of neon. Now the indevidual cased DVDs are priced at 6 while the complete boxed set - in a steel case - is priced at 94.99; thats 53 cheaper !!!

    So has anyone any idea what I am paying an extra 53 for - it can't just be for a flashy box -can it ?

    Ok correct me if i'm wrong, but I was under the impression that boxed sets of complete series cost less than buying all the DVDs indevidually; But at HMV they have the opposite policy - the boxed set is twice the price of the indevidual DVDs - not just neon genesis, but Elfen Leid as well - there might be more present.

    The only way I can understand this is that they have a massive surplus of indevidual DVDs and want to shift them quick. If not then my head hurts badly.

    There is a very good reason why I buy all of my anime from online sources.

    This is precisely it.

    The prices in high street stores here in the UK are ridiculous and illogical :S

    I like to have legal copies of my anime, and I don't earn enough to pay the kind of prices some of them have...

    So definitely, online outlets are the better option.

    The UK is, sadly, quite crappy for anime buying and watching in general :S

    At least, so I've found - even on trips to London or Cardiff I didn't find much in a logical price bracket or even that was remotely interesting :S None of the titles I might have bought :S

    well i'm ignoring the boxed set - if they want me to pay twice as much they ahve to at least tell me why. I didn't send an email in case I went back and found they had re-priced the indevidual DVDS

    VraieEsprit - can you recommend any online sites - so far I only trust amazon and hmv - and yes your right highstreet shops are useless - though I find that they tend to never have enough of the anime I want "yes sir we do sell it - only volume one!"

    Well, I've used Ebay for nigh on ten years for one thing or another, but I know not everyone is comfortable with that :S I'd say 80% of my anime buying comes from ebay dealers these days.

    Otherwise I use amazon, too. Places like Yesasia might have anime, but I don't know how well they'd be subtitled or dubbed.
