Mine doesn't either, apparently that is the way they came out. I bought mine new back when they first came out. Back then most of the time shows packaged like that came in a sleeve. It always seemed like something was missing but I never saw another copy to compare. It didn't help that the store where I got it was quite capable of re shrink wrapping something. It was also weirdly priced.

Looks like my preorder of Tamako Market will be shipping out soon via Rightstuf. My bank account's been charged for it.

@Alan
Yeah, I thought that was weird too, who doesn't put a sleeve on something like that?

Otakon wasn't enough... Right Stuf had just the sale I was looking for and I added something from the Udon sale too.

13th Boy 5, 9 (complete, because I arranged a trade for 6 of the other volumes)
Goong 16 (a pre-order, which I don't usually do for manga, but I always end up having to buy this series online anyway and Right Stuf has the best prices even without a Yen sale. It doesn't come out until the end of September, but it just made sense to pre-order it right now since I wanted other things)
Gurren Lagann art works (I had a tough time deciding between this and Persona 3, so I went over to Amazon where the one review flipped through both books and I determined I liked the GL one more right now)
Higurashi Festival Accompanying Arc 3, 4 series v 24, 25 (been meaning to get these for a few months really. Would've completed the series until Dice Killing was announced, one can never have enough Higurashi it would appear).
Hissing 6 (complete)

There were other things I wanted, but I'll eventually get the Blue Seed anime at some point (probably Xmas sale or something). I was gonna order some Slam Dunk, but I have plenty of money in my paypal, which Rakuten accepts, so I'll probably get it there (36-37% off per vol is good, if I get $40 worth, free shipping too). I was just gonna order two vols on Right Stuf, but I need 8 more vols total for the series.

Both sets of A Certain Scientific Railgun S I ordered appear to be getting ready to ship out via Rightstuf. My bank account's been charged for them.

Went to the used store today, got Slayers seasons 1-3 Funimation set for about $30 after tax. That's about what it is online if not a little cheaper, I looked at Otakon of course, but nothing was cheap enough there, so I got it here!
I also picked up Venture Bros season 5, on DVD actually, because I had $5 coupon at Best Buy that was expiring soon and the DVD was on sale $10, the blu ray $27.

I bought myself a nice little group of anime and manga at Otakon. Found some good dvd/bluray deals on Sunday at booths. There's also always a cheap manga booth that sells them for $5 a piece or 5 for $20. The selection is not the biggest but I always find some missing volumes I need. Can't beat the price.

Blu-ray/Dvd

Psycho Pass
Code Breaker
Jormungand
Ano Hana tv series
Mardock Scramble Third Combustion movie
Puella Magi Madoka Magica parts 1&2


Manga

Oh My Goddess vol 42-45
The Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service vol 3-5
Vampire Hunter D light novels #'s 10-12

My gf got some anime herself. She got on Dvd/Blu-ray

Amnesia
Natsuyuki Rendevous
Dusk Maiden of Amnesia

Cheap as free?

picky, picky. Yes, the giver upgrades to BD and ditches the DVD- or ditches stuff he just didn't like. There's also manga and figures (mostly EVA this time). But if you don't want to join, no one's forcing you.
