Wait. Zetsubou-sensei is getting released in the states???
When was this announced?
Last night during that YouTube interview.
Ah. I’s an idjot.
It got announced in July last year with coming this year ,but having to translate from scratch probably means 2021 .
Now it’s orders over $75 to get free economy shipping.
Yeah they are going to probably loose a few customers over that . Not enough to make $50 sometimes .
Edit Don’t get me wrong I get it ,but if they are going raise the price they need to figure out a way to make things work better and maybe upgrade the advantage of having a got anime membership.
That’d be nice, it seems like that has lost some advantages over the last few years.
I’m not sure I like the idea of holding your entire order until all of it, including back/preorders, is in stock. I had the, ah, troubled Media Blasters’ release of Yamibo on preorder for literally years. Under this shipping policy of RightStuf’s, I’d now either have to pay a fee to have gotten my stuff outta hock early or have relied on RightStuf’s mercy to release it early.
I did a little looking at orders over the year last night . Most of my orders except Manga meet the $75 . So going to have to replan my Manga orders from now on . I think the Got Anime membership though at $75 might work against more then help . Since you have to order more . The more it takes off so your more likely to come up short on the free shipping freshhold since the got anime discount applies before . Funimation also barely has much I want anymore so I only typically end up ordering the Limited Editions since they used to meet free shipping by itself.
I ‘m going to probably be ordering anything not limited from Amazon and Target more then I was .
It’s always been like that ,but it’s gotten worse since the pandemic. Like they will hold stuff for a bit now . I’ve gotten some high dollar bombs because of them merging several shipments from several orders after parts had been sitting for weeks .
