Even though I was excluded from this question, I’m going to reply anyway If we’re talking $90 on one big release, then I might be a bit apprehensive about it. I would have no problem if it were say two $45 half sets, even $50-$60 half season sets, if it were a show I really wanted.
If it were divided up into singles, I would probably be even more inclined to buy say 5 or 6 singles at $20+ a pop. Especially if an optional art box is part of the deal. $120 isn’t too bad, if it’s spread out over 6 months or so. Sadly, this model is dying a slow, painful death…
To be honest, the last time I really splurged and spend a $100+ on a release, was right after Geneon shut down. I laid down around $160 for a complete, new in box release of Fate Stay Night with Art Box. I did have a bit of buyers remorse, but I never really regretted it. Even though it did finally get re-released, the packaging was flimsy and prone to floaters. I wouldn’t trade my beautiful Geneon Art Box for anything. I think I also laid down $80-$90 for the Le Chevalier Deon Bargain Bundle at Right Stuf, and that was totally worth it.
I would definitely be willing to pay $90+ for a series, but like others have said, it would depend on the series, how it was being released, and the packaging. Perhaps a model where there is an economy release in a brick, while there is also a premium release in a chipboard thin pack might be plausible, and would give consumers an excellent option, especially if some extra features were added to the “Premium Collection”. And like most others, I would of course be willing to pay more to get a dubbed release.
I would easily lay down $90 for say a dubbed Clannad, Ghost Hound, or Tears to Tiara with some decent packaging. But I might do the same for Glass Mask or Maria Holic. It just depends on the factors I have listed.
