    It's easy to unload them on eBay. I don't buy them new anymore.

    While we're on this subject, what's a good program to rip DVDs with?

    i already have most of those on dvd/downloaded.

    now days i only pay for anime if i really really liked it

    edit: if you were willing to sell certain ones seperately in the event this auction falls through i may consider buying eva or some others. my copy seems to have been kidnapped a couple years ago


    DVD decrypter is what i use.

    you can play that in a media player if you want, but the last couple times i went DVD to AVI i used AutoGK. there is probably something more suitable for the task though

    They're getting really cheap. i picked up the whole elfen lied series for under $35. Being able to watch it with an upconvert on my screen with true surround seemed worth it. i streamed an episode of TTGL over the xbox to my tv, and while it looked good, im sure the dvd release would come out super clean.

    Is that a good deal though, as in do I have a good chance of selling it for atleast $70 (50+20)? I'm sure most people get their anime online now.

    ap13, if it doesn't go anywhere on EBay I'll let you know.

    Where'd you find it for that cheap?! From my experience, anime on DVD is way too expensive. One 4-episode volume costs that much.

    +1 on the collections. i have the same thin pack. if you buy them disc by disc, it gets pricey, but once they all get released it seems they create a box set to cut their costs and recoup. something like haruhi isn't going down anytime soon, but the local japantown store had a bunch of good stuff, entire series, for around $40. not bad for 7-10 hours of content.

    i really don't know how much used anime sells for now days, you may want to look around and compare. seems like a good deal for the buyer since you can buy maybe 2 anime series new for about that price.

    :bowdown:I gotta find stores like that, I was lookin around Borders, Best Buy and Amazon and all their shit was ridiculously expensive. I saw a Samurai Champloo box set for over 100 bucks :ugh2:


    I hear EL is awesome on surround sound, is it true?

    Honestly, while it was cool during some of the battles, it seems like the sound mixer guy had a hard on for working with the sound that the sliding doors make in the house. every time someone opened a door it would scream through the back speakers left to right. :rofl: bullet and ripping sounds were really impressive though when they were in effect.
