That price just isnt worth it. I dont care if you have the best VAs in the world there is no way you can convince me to spend $70 for four episodes and some artwork

Not even the OST works for you? I love it so much, it's enough to make me throw my cash at the monitor shouting "Shut up and take my money!"

Here's the OST of the show on youtube:

It's a nice piece of music, no doubt about it. I'm glad you can get the OST like you want because it obviously is something special for you.

Again, what I'm asking for is an eventual "standard" full cour release at a North American market compatible price, similar to what NISA does with titles like Working!! and Yuru Yuri. To the best of my understanding a release like that should not impact sales of the Limited Editions since those are targeted at a niche portion of the already niche Anime collector's market.

Thanks, I have a deep love for music.

The only solution I can provide is to wait until the value goes down at a reasonable price. Or worst case scenario but best case scenario for you is the series bombs and they have leftover copies that they want to get rid of at very low prices.

You aren't alone in loving music. (He says while looking at the stack of Vinyl LP's and Turntable next to his monitor.) Very Happy

It isn't something that I want to see happen where PonyCan US goes the way of Bandai Ent or Geneon US, not at all. I don't blame them for being prudent by the best of their knowledge, but they can hurt themselves by being too restrictive and under producing in the market just as easily as by overproducing like some others did.

There is a balance between premium and standard which it is possible to achieve, otherwise Funimation, Sentai, NISA would not be able to stay in the business.

If they follow the Aniplex model, the price will not be reduced anytime in the foreseeable future. There won't be any sales either, since the retailers are forbidden from doing that.

I hate the pricing for this just like everyone else. But I'm guilty and bought it because I really enjoyed the series. That being said, knowing the prices they now charge I won't be getting any of the other series they offer.
I hate paying AOA prices so I'm trying not to support that crazy reserve importing here in the US.
Sucks because Plastic Memories is being release here in the US by AOA I think.... Mad

I like your avatar, neozxtc. You definitely have some skill (pun very much intended).

----------

Though I wasn't sure at the time, I've since come to the realisation that this chunk of episodes features the series at its strongest. If the price had been reasonable I would've bought the entire show for this particular volume alone.

----------

Hey Theron, I have a question. If the price had been more reasonable, would you've bumped the grade up from A- to A?

Nah, I wasn't figuring the price into the grade at all. Was just erring on the conservative side with the Overall grades.
