Charming. The violent wank fest (and, let's not kid ourselves, it can wax lyrical about how it's the lament of how the Psycic Hand Monsters are apparently better than humanity but that's not what any person buying the thing is in for, they're in for the horrific body multiation, girls wetting themselves and episode five...christ...episode five.) gets the red carpet treatment and the film that's actually worth a constituted damn is cancelled.

These guys will fit right in with Magna and MVM!

So it transpires that the Place Promised was ultimately a promise misplaced.
Fortunately, it is not the case that the Elfen Lied.

Bit better I suppose but I tend not to pay anymore than £1 per episode unless it is a show I really want, which Elfen lied is not.

If you can spin Region 1, it's just under £20 + P&P at UP1USA

That shipping puts it just over £16, but if you get it from Amazon.co.uk, it's around £14.50.

Damn! It's still more than £1 an episode. Just over £1.10. We can't satisfy Skippy's criteria!

Very Happy I am sure I could stretch to £1.10 if needs be.

Even at £1.10 you still make people who download a lot better hell there are people who download and still look better than those who buy those £50+ boxsets(which consist one 4 or 5 discs crammed into 1 DVD box)
