WHAT?! Sixty dollars for a thirteen episode series?! As much as I'd love to buy AKB0048, I'm waiting for the price to drop!

Rightstuf always has the lowest price for newly released series. I bet it will be around $41.99 and of course with the Got Anime discount, you'll get another 10% off and will pay less than $40 for a brand new complete series on Blu Ray. Anime seriously couldn't be any more affordable these days.

I still remember paying $30 for a single VHS tape for 3-4 episodes of a series. Now you get an entire series on Blu Ray for that. Amazing.

$60 for an entire season is a steal. Get over yourself.

.

Actually, that $41.99 is a weekly specials price, so you can't use your Got Anime discount on top of it. You can use it during a studio sale though.

Also, it's worth noting that Sentai doesn't do cheaper re-releases, so it's not likely to get cheaper unless you buy it used.

Personally, I've started using Deep Discount more often as they often have new Sentai blurays in the $36-40 range with free shipping that is usually quicker than Right Stuf. Honestly, if people think that $36 is too much for a full season of an anime, then they are in the wrong hobby.
