"Kitty Grade"
As they say in the U.K., "bless".

Forgot to mention they are used as well.
I could see maybe a few 100 but that price is just insane. I have more stuff then this that isnt even worth that amount alone! Some anime fans seem to think just because its OOP its worth a ton of money. Hell most of these are easily available and can be could found brand new and total a lot less then $2500!

I'd say that collection is worth probably about a $1000, and no more. They're of course to be in excellent condition.

But I'm ashamed to say I did order from RACS once, maybe 2 years ago. They had a manga (Firefighter Daigo, which is OOP, clearly Robert didn't notice because it was only $9) that TRSI didn't have (and Firefighter Daigo is epic good and I had to have it.


That's nothing to be ashamed about. You found a good deal and went for it, who cares it's from RACS? A friend and I did the same thing a couple of years ago. We got some Daigo and Basara 20 for less than MSRP. If anything we're heroes, because we prevented him from overcharging other people Anime hyper

I seriously almost gave the dealer a heart attack cause I was squeeing like a fangirl spotting there favorite voice actor...


No, don't ever squee again! D: Keep a poker face. Some dealers are major bastards and will jack up the price if they notice it's rare.

I usually just smile politely and don't talk much until the transaction is complete. That got me another new Four Shojo Stories for just €6 a few days again Anime smile

I believe this is the highest price I've ever found for a dvd. I wonder what Amazon would do if someone tried to buy it? http://www.amazon.com/​gp/​offer-​listing/​B000GW8U3G/​ref=​sr_1_5_olp?​s=​movies-​tv&​ie=​UTF8&​qid=​1346820455&​sr=​1-​5&​keywords=​strawberry+​marshmallow&​condition=​used[/url]

That's a weird freaking number. Where did the 25 dollars and 48 cents come from? What's wrong with a flat $100,000?

That seller must not know currency or how to enter it correctly on Amazon, because here is another listing of theirs I saw:
http://www.amazon.com/​gp/​offer-​listing/​B001R10BE6/​ref=​dp_olp_new?​ie=​UTF8&​condition=​new
But I guess it is the steelbook version.

I guess that seller hasn't realize that that series is getting a re-release. Laughing

And no steelbook is worth THAT amount of money.

There has to be something wrong here. No anime program is going to sell at that price. Either the guy is crazy or made a mistake in entry.

If you think that's something, look how much M and N Media wants for the Wolf's Rain volume one with artbox.. (spoiler[ $100,025.48])

I suspect that we might have some automated pricing algorithms running amok here.

Would he have to pay extra to delist the stuff and then relist it? Maybe he just doesn't want anything to sell while he is out of town or something.
