Ultra-expensive merchandise only. Anime hyper

First up: CCS Book Set from the defunct Geneon, yay!

Episodes 36-70 only for the bargain price of 2.5 Grand, plus shipping, lol!

Australian sellers are absurd! I "only" had to pay $250 for mine. However, you're a nutso yourself for paying that much for it. You'd be better off getting the Japanese BDs for that price tag.

Well, here's a thread I doubt I'll ever be able to contribute much to, other than dropping my jaw...

Ain't that a fact. Anime hyper

RACS was selling their last CCS sets for under $100 several years back. Surprised

Yeeeeah....good luck with getting that much, mate. I only paid $400 for the complete set and 2 movies (seller was selling them all together).


This one is my favorite: http://cgi.ebay.com/​SAiLOR-​MOON-​SAiLORMOON-​DREAM-​BOX-​SET-​DVD-​MOViES-​ANiME-​S-​/​200565626385?​pt=​US_DVD_HD_DVD_Blu_ra​y&​hash=​item2eb2a49611

They have been putting it up for sale for almost a year. Wonder why no one has bought it. VHS tapes are something people no longer want, let alone fansubbed versions that you can get for free. Rolling Eyes

Bwahaha, what a loser! I got Sailor Moon Super S for about $500, but I'm only interested in Fisheye, hehe. Twisted Evil

They must've paid eBay at least $100 in listing fees by now, lol.

I was able to sell my first volume of Ronin Warriors for about $20, but sweet jesus that's a bit overpriced.

should be subtitled "for those who have a burning need to get rid of money" or something

Do these exist at, y'know, normal prices? Because it is Hikaru no Go, dammit!

Anyway, I feel the need to contribute something:

Besides, there's a much cheaper $756 option out there. If you're wondering who the problem child is, it's volume 4, which has two amazon listings at $360.50 each. Then again, there are lots of problem children here, volume 5 goes for around $60, volume 10 is $50 range, and volume 1 is through the roof too (you might as well get the anime since it covers this chapter really well). Actually, that $756 one is starting to look like a bargain is the sad part. But you can find copies of vol 6 everywhere because everyone hates it, hooray!

They're about 3500 yen in Japan, IIRC. You can pick them up at Akihabara.

A fair price is around $40-$50.

Well, this obviously wasn't an anti-sale, since I bought them, but I did buy volumes 19 and 20 of Basara on Amazon at different times. Vol. 19 last January and vol. 20 this January.

I was able to buy half of the series for practically the same price it cost to buy those two volumes. Anime hyper (And only 8 more volumes to go! YAY!)

My local library actually has the entire series, so there wasn't a need for me to buy them. But I wanted them anyways. Yay, collector's mentality.
