    Default Anime Regrets: Box Sets

    This has always been something of a curiosity of mine, However, if there's anyone else out there whom collects Box Sets: has there ever been a Box Set that you have purchased on a whim, and then did not like the series at all?

    (Relative Posts Please, IE: No "No nothing" spam posts)

    My ones that I regret would be

    All Purpose Cultural Catgirl Nuku Nuku TV
    Chance Pop Session
    Grenadier
    Divergence Eve
    If Anyone has a question about the Anime Industry, be it "What to buy?" Or my opinion on a certain topic. Feel Free to IM Me.

    Note: Please make it ledgible and readable before you send it(No Chatspeak please)

    Note: Any Questions on "Where can I get things for free" or Piracy issues: Will be met with a Fist of an Angry God(Ignored)

    No o_O;. Why get an expensive box set for an anime that you've never seen before? That's ludicrous! Watch an anime before investing in it.

    The closest thing to that I've done to that is bought some old anime that I remember being good from my childhood and then regretting it because it was pretty stupid now that I'm an adult... I did that with the first Voltron set and realized it wasn't as good I remember it being when I was a kid..

    ADV boxsets are really crap, they have the worse quality with no inner sleeve just dvds shoved in.

    Hahaha Nova. Thanks for this.

    FLCL -> I didn't get it. I still don't get it. Get out of my house now!
    .Hack//SIGN -> It was a giant PHAIL. I was pretty bored after the first 4 episodes.

    Well, I bought the Fruits Basket box set thinking it would be as good as the manga...and I was a bit disappointed. Now I dont buy a box set unless I preview the ANIME first >_>

    Strangely enough I do this quite often haha, but I normally purchase budget animes around 30 dollars and under. I love all the anime in m y collection BUT probably the one that I adore the least would be:

    Magical Shopping Arcade Abenobashi

    Don't get me wrong, I was pleased with the series but to go on topic with the thread, I did buy this on a whim. I caught an episode on what use to be TechTV's Anime Unleashed Block (great anime block...now its gone T ^ T) and thought it'd be interesting enough to get since the series had some nice animation and decent humor.

    Some animes that I've bought on the whim or just plain randomly and absolutely adored were:

    Midori Days
    Excel Saga
    Genshiken (I did read the manga first however so that might've helped me with this purchase)
    Steel Angel Kurumi

    Most of my other box sets I have previewed and/or seen the entire series and just had to have it (i.e Evangelion, Cowboy Bebop) but yeah, MSAA is probably the set that I enjoyed the least, but I do give it some love once and a while haha.

    It's nice trying out new anime, especially ones that you've never seen before. Since I have a decent part-time job and some money to throw around after paying for my classes/books its nice to experiment haha. But seriously, if you are looking to invest in a box set try to preview it somehow. I'm just one of those weird otakus that buys anything with nice art and a flashy cover at times haha.




    People that I think are awesome aka ones I admire and the ones that think I'm a nice guy:

    Box Sets are not Expensive Nowadays and usually run between 15.00 to 80.00 Depending on the company whom dubs the series or releases it in north america, by No means are these expensive.

    I know every Box Set I listed above as things I regret, have been things that I know personally are 40.00 Or Less. - and I usually spend about 300.00 A Month on Anime. so It's not that much of a loss to me as I usually have many more Hits than I do Misses.

    Also: In The Long Run, you'd pay almost over 100.00 Garunteed for about a 5-7 Volume Series in Singles. - So Allow me to ask

    If you wanted to Sample something: Why buy a DVD(Because all I do is buy because I despise Piracy) which will Run me about 21.99: When The Entire Series would cost me 40.00 or less usually.

    It makes no sense to me (However, you may do things differently than I do, which Is why I believe it may make perfect sense to you )

    I don't know about you, but have yet to see a box set that costs $15.00. Show me one, and I'll be convinced. The lowest I've seen a box set run for is $40.00. Also, I earn my money. So $40.00 is a lot for me. I'm also not incredibly rich, and don't carry $80.00 around with me every day. If you want to sample something, rent it. Get opinions on it. If you can spend $300 a month on anime than you can afford Netflix. I'm not trying to be rude, but I just personally wouldn't buy something I don't know about. Would you buy a $200 bottle of wine that you've never tasted before?

    Sometimes it's impatience. I was getting sick of waiting for a Fullmetal Alchemist box set, so I bought the first two volumes. Then two days later, a box set was announced.

    Don't you hate moments like that?

    For example, I'd love to start buying Tsubasa and Death Note, but I've got two voices in my head, one saying, "BUY NOW!!! MUST WATCH!!!" and the other saying, "Be patient, you greedy maniac. You can save a lot of money if you wait for a box set."

    (Note: Doom85 does not actually have voices in his head.........yet.)

    Getting back to the original topic, yes, I buy box sets on a whim. If we're only talking anime, then: Neon Genesis Evangelion, Outlaw Star, Samurai Champloo, Wolf's Rain, and .hack//Sign. I've loved them all, so I've got to say that so far it's working.
    My name is Kakashi Hatake. What I like....I don't feel like telling you that. My dreams for the future...hmm, never really thought about that. As for my hobbies...well, I have many hobbies.

    I got Naruto box sets 1-4 for $20 each. Pretty close.

    I know that some people like myself like to collect anime. It's a retarded investment but I still do it anyway lol. We have experienced a price drop over here in Australia but it's still expensive. People saying that boxsets are cheap are either : collectors, computer illiterate people who haven't heard of you tube or bit torrents, or rich kiddos.

    I haven't bought a boxset for some time now because I'm saving up for other things. It's amazing how much money I'm saving not buying a boxset every month.

    I've never bought one before seeing a few episodes and making sure I really like it.
    ...I only have a couple though. Gokusen, Neon Genesis Evangelion, and R.O.D.

    Arc the Lad

    Loved the video game, one of the best strategy RPG's ever, so figured I'd like the anime, but its so cut and paste. The story is hacked up and I just couldn't keep watching.

    There are USED box sets for under $15.00, but yeah, that's just my opinion. Anyways, I do kind of regret purchasing the Dragonball Z Brolly Triple Threat boxset. The first movie wasn't bad, but it wasn't long either, and as the movies progressed, they got even shorter! I purchased it for $30.00, and thought it was a smart idea, and it was the only one left, and 'cause they each cost $30.00 a piece(you are an idiot if you don't notice that they sell them individually and together on the same shelf!) Sometimes I think it's a rip-off and not really worth your time buying them like that, but it's a heck of a lot better deal than buying 'em all individually and plus, you get the box to carry them all in and the cheap price!

    Oh, Hi-deeki, imagine... your kind not eating raw fish! ^_^

    The only one I've regretted so far is Sister Princess.

    The Gokusen(A 13 Episode Series) is 16.98 Currently.) And was 15.00 When I bought it New from Robert's Anime Corner Store. so it wasn't used at all. - Neither was Nightwalker when I purchased it, for $5.00 (A 12 Episode Series)

    OOops! 0_o My mistake! There could be brand new boxsets on Ebay, but I don't really trust it.

    A word of wise advice to eBay goers:

    DON'T BUY HONG KONG BOX SETS. THEY ARE CRAP!!!

    $300 a MONTH, NovaStar!? o_o You must have a REALLY good-paying job. Even if I could afford it, my parents would kill me dead if I spent that much on anime.

    I knew you were probably looking for someone to link you some prices instead of telling you about their own experiences Pengin-san so here you go. Two series at a 15 dollar price range at Best Buy.

    Anime is getting cheap nowadays. I remember having to purchase some Tenchi episodes on VHS back in the day and that set me back twenty dollars for three episodes and back then my allowance was 5 bucks a week! So yeah, I had to be a very patient boy when it came to investing in my otaku side haha.

    I know we all have different PoV's on what's expensive and what's cheap but I thought I'd take up your challenge of finding a 15 dollar box set for kicks. So long as we all love anime, I'm sure it doesn't matter what or how we contribute to that hobby.

    A rule of thumb though...if you're looking for a box set of a popular series...let's say Evangelion, then that might set you back 40-60 dollars. While we do have 15-30.00 box sets out there, the more "beloved" series will be a tad bit pricier. I'm still staring at the Samurai Champloo and Gankutsuou box sets at Best Buy but those things are beyond my spending budget on monthly dvd's (I have to allocate money to figures and video games too T ^ T). Normally when I want to get one of the more expensive series then I set aside some money every month until I can purchase it so it doesn't feel like so much of a huge purchase.

    So yeah the saying is true when it comes to anime box sets most of the time (at least where I purchase them):

    You get what you pay for ^^.

    If you're lucky though, some budget series may actually turn out to be right up your alley ^^ *caresses Steel Angel Kurumi box set*.

    Thank you, I believe it now. However, overall most anime is not cheap. Unless you consider $20 for 4-5 episodes cheap. MOST anime is not cheap. I can tell you right now that if my anime and manga collection was stolen I'd lose close to $2000 worth of stuff.
