Heck the other day I bought an Akari figurine on eBay because of TAN. I have an Aria soundtrack, too. In addition to a big pile of DVDs.

  • World Of Narue collection
  • You’re Under Arrest V2 and season 2 collection 1

There’s more, I’d have to go look at the shelf again.

A used copy of Kino’s Journey.

I really hate to say it but TAN saved me 1000s of dollars over the years, there are shows I plan to buy someday I saw off of here, Guyver(never finished), Welcome to the NHK(never finished), Aria(never finished), DN Angel, Kiba(never finished), Mahoromatic, Princess Ressurection(never finished), Princess Tutu(best show I saw through TAN first).

There were other shows I had considered but held off thanks to TAN like Noir.

I don’t mean to be a jerk but I don’t have a job.

Innocent Venus (3 discs)
Neon Genesis Evangelion: Director’s Cut, Vol. 1 - Resurrection

Wow, that is an amazing list Supermutant.


#19

I been watching an since it came on Cablevision. Been many years now. If I see a series I like on TAN I will buy box set was for longest time what I did. Some of the more recent section 23 stuff I bought before they come on TAN. It’s been a good way to save money because I wait to see if I like if it’s TAN. Stuff I watched on TAN I may have bought if not watched on TAN and didn’t like. Like gilgamesh and Ghost Hound which is okay but not a series I probaby will not get if the collection I pre order at comic store doesn’t come. There was also time when shows didn’t finish on TAN and I don’t mean Welcome TO NHK and company. I mean Wedding Peach, Bast Of Syndrome, Arc The Lad (Which never has finished). Also for longest time Orphen 2 never aired on Cablevision so I got that after enjoying season 1. I forget to list Shingu since I got the box set after watching it on TAN. Also Welcome To NHK and Red Garden to watch how they end after they stopped on TAN. Though I went back and edit them in.
