I do want the series, but that price is just too much. I can afford it, but there's no way I will ever pay that much for one series. Around $200 for thirteen or so episodes is my limit.

If I enjoyed the show, the price wouldn't be an issue as this is standard/cheaper than a normal import. I've spent far more than that on other shows and don't regret a single yen. I merely didn't enjoy the show. So while I would like to say "No," the choices in the poll do not reflect that impression.

It is because of crap like this that fansubbing is so prevalent!

Fate/Zero streamed for free on CR and Nico Nico Douga with subtitles in eight different languages within a week of the Japanese airing. As such, i fail to see how the BD boxset being too expensive encourages fansubbing. No one was or is forced to buy the BDs to watch the show. in fact, you can watch it for free right now!

I would seriously LOVE to own the show but I would also like to eat lunch for the next few months while I'm on campus. In the end my stomach won me over Sad I am also waiting for a cheaper release down the line, probably DVD only but it's better than paying $700 dollars!

As I commented in the Retail forum, I'd much rather nuke $500-$700 on more essential stuff like food and a car than buying a series I could just watch for free on a legal streaming site like Crunchyroll.

Same here.

@nbahn

The lack of an English dub is not an issue, I wouldn't have listened to it in any case.

It not being dubbed was disappointing, but the Yuki Kajiura scored OSTs that came with the sets more than made up for it. Her work is always gold.

No f**k Aniplex's retarded prices. $700 for TTGL? $190 for 3 episodes of SAO? No, screw that. And they wonder why piracy is so rampant sometimes.
