#1967

Just looking over the Funimation page, and saw this:

https://www.funimation.com/shop/home-video/cowboy-bebop-the-bebop-crew-collectors-edition-blr-00232/

It’s probably old news now and doesn’t release until November, but $550 for Cowboy Bebop? I understand it’s a super limited edition 20th anniversary, but that’s an entire months rent! For a copy of Cowboy Bebop!

Also, the link to DxD Classic seems to not exist on funimation.com


#1968

@MaouSadao

Yes, it was posted in the Cowboy Bebop thread, since the release date is so far out.

Will fix HSDxD

EDIT - HSDxD is now gone from the pre-order page, will remove it from above.


#1969

After buying SND BURST from the Crunchy store (It’s only $47 with shipping for Crunchy members), they have DxD Classic edition listed:

https://www.crunchyroll.com/store/p/205501/High-School-DxD-The-Series-Classics-Blu-ray

Don’t know why it was removed from the Funi store :thinking:


#1970

Suddenly I’ve become acutely aware of the high cost of living in my area…:cry:

$550 for that Bebop collection is just absurd-there’s nothing in there worth so much-it sounds like Funi is taking after its new Sony sibling Aniplex already :frowning:

Glad to see that Outlaw Star & Ergo Proxy made Anime Classics, I’ll have to finally pick them up, even though the box art for Outlaw Star is bad (why is Gene Starwind an albino :question:).

I like Black Clover well enough, but I don't like the dub. However, Funi's store has it priced now at $0.00 and I'd definitely "buy" it for that :D

I spoke with one of the reps from the company and they said there were some technical issues with the solicitations yesterday. They’re working hard on getting them up as soon as they can.

#1976

Buys:

  • NEW GAME! Season Two - BD/DVD Combo
  • Assassination Classroom Season Two - BD
  • Re:ZERO - Starting Life in Another World - Season One Part Two - BD/DVD Combo

I’m gonna navigate around the Classics and Essentials lines for now.


#1977

Possible buy in the future:

Brave Witches

@Snowy_Stampede

Essentials line? What’s that?


#1978

Buys

-New Game S2
-Re: Zero Part 2
-Brave Witches

Maybe
-Aokana

Edit : I’m guessing the Re:Life re release is hopefully setting the stage for the OVA Disc release


#1979
This, for example


#1980

Note that the Essentials line is being released as BD / Digital only


#1981

They’re also much cheaper than the Classics line. Essentials are the new S.A.V.E collections I guess.


#1982

Buys:

  • Re:Zero
  • Sage of Tanya the Evil

#1983

Where the less popular home-media titles in Funimation’s catalog go to die.

It used to be called “Super Amazing Value Edition (S.A.V.E)”, but people caught on, so it would appear that Funi has rebranded it with an ironic name.

Looks like they're stealing ADV's old naming scheme too

Looking at the list, Shimoneta is in “Essentials” purgatory? Normally I find that when I don’t like a show, I’m in the minority. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

…Did “obnoxious Taser Loli” curb the enthusiasm for everyone else too? :rofl:


#1984

@Snowy_Stampede @Series5Ranger @celestial_being

Thanks for the info. I was wondering what happened to the S.A.V.E. releases. :grin::+1:

Not all of them are bad though, in fact there’s a few in my collection. Pani Poni Dash, Girls Bravo, and Strike Witches are the first to come to mind.

Yeah, 2 of those were rescues, but still…

Edit

Shiki supposedly has a SAVE release as well.

I should try to pick that up before the 30th…
