It's not shrink wrap. It's a plastic envelope sort of thing with a resealable flap.

If you'd even consider tossing it then I think you already know what you're gonna do with it.

Like I said, I won't toss it if it's meant to be part of the set. And I know it isn't shrinkwrap, but it's still a thin piece of plastic covering whose importance is ambiguous to me. Once again, if it's a part of the collection, I won't toss it, but if other people are only retaining it due to a personal preference for keeping it, then I don't see any reason to hold on to it.

Aah, so the counter's started on the Reflection BD set, huh? Thought that would still have a lot of time left on it, considering its less-than-stellar critical reputation (especially compared to T&B). Unlike the original director's cut for T&B, though, I technically have ownership over the DVD for it (though a friend's been holding onto it for who-knows-how-long). I wonder if more people are going to purchase it based on a collector-minded intent to own "complete" a BD set of Ruroken OVAs, rather than based on its actual merits. It's definitely not high on my list of financial priorities, if at all there to begin with.

Hey... speaking of director's cut, there was one for Reflection as well, right? Just exactly how was that different from the original cut, which is the only version that I've seen? Since the OVA was already widescreen to begin with, I'd imagine that it suffered less in the conversion process, at least.

@WTK

Elsewhere, I had made note of Sayaka's appearance (yes) on the box, and just why it might be that she's on the front. Sadly... I think it might have come down to design issues. To quote myself: "It's because her complete character art isn't standing straight enough for "Puella Magi Madoka Magica" to fit on the left side. If you move her off much more to the right, part of her sword will go off the cover. And then there's the consistency in title placement, you know."

Or, it could even be that Mami is more popular in the fandom that Sayaka... though the reasons for that have always felt pretty insubstantial to me when compared to the other characters, really.

He posted the recent Patlabor deal, right? I will love him forever in my heart of hearts.


I realise this is a bit late, but what's this Patlabor Deal?


peace

This. Still available apparently.

Oh snap. I told myself after Madoka LEs, two copies of REDLINE, ef, Trust & Betrayal LE, and a few other things I was done for a few months but guess I was wrong. I gotta snag that bundle.

...and something else to hit the free shipping mark...

I noticed that Reflections seems to be selling out in a MUCH faster pace than Trust and Betrayal (over 20 sold just over night...) so I went ahead and got it now.

Well, hopefully the movie won't have a counter for a while! I don't think it would any time soon...

*Bump* Because I just noticed that Reflections has now SOLD OUT from TRSI! Whoa I didn't think it would go that fast!! Mine just got marked as shipped yesterday. Time to keep an eye on the movie, because I'm sure a counter will hit pretty soon for that too...

Holy!

I get paid today and go to the Reflections page on TRSI to find it sold out. Which is insane, because the counter was at 81 a day ago!

Fortunately I found someone reselling it on Amazon for $61.99, coming at a total of $64.97 with shipping. It's a tad more expensive, but not much more than Trust & Betrayal was, and it's much better than what it could have been.

*Exhale.*

Was about to be very sad. But while I have lost $10 profit on this, I'm happy for the turnout. Very Happy

Sounds like you got pretty lucky finding one at that price! Yeah seriously, I'm amazed that it sold out so fast. Even Trust and Betrayal went down very slowly, but still sat around the 50 mark for a little while. I sure hope it wasn't scalpers picking up the last copies in abundance...

There was an error with the counter that caused Reflections to be removed from the site. Don't worry, we still have a number left, and they should be back up within a few hours. Sorry about the confusion.

Well damn, I may need to retract that order then, since I planned to order it with Sekirei: Pure Engagement Limited Edition, which, strangely enough, is still available everywhere but Amazon (sans third parties).
