Direct link to new Sentai sale: https://www.sentaifilmworks.com/collect ... b3cb0e1382

I had like $360 in my cart initially. Pared down to $138 by the time I ordered. Would have bought it all but I just bought a large game lot. Couldn't resist Dunbine and When They Cry sets at $20 each this time.

Can relate, ended up spending $123.79 on the Sentai black Friday sale. So many great deals, so little money to splurge. Then ended up spending another $62 on the RightStuf Cyber Monday sale.


Thankfully (or not?) I spent a ton on the Sentai sales the previous year. It was kinda nice looking things over and saying "have it" to most things I would have wanted.

I bought the DVD of Casshan last year and only watched 1 episode :( Been too busy to sit and enjoy a series.

Have Macross 7 on LD but again only watched 1 epi.

Need to get more time or less series on LD/DVD :lol:

The only two target markets for Shining Hearts were:
A. Fans of Sega's "Shining" Strategy RPG game series.
B. Fans of Tony Taka's character designs.... don't look up Tony Taka unless you're at home, in private, because he's well renowned for his hentai... art (extremely NSFW).

Nadia and Patlabor are both classics, would take someone having extremely picky tastes to be disappointed with either of them.

I really enjoyed watching Shining Hearts.
Even bought two anime figures from the show after watching.
Guess I like Tony Taka's character designs.

as do i. outside of the superficially charming end credits sequence, however, i couldn't seem to find the series proper
to be anything beyond trite, dull and incredibly predictable, with a roundly underwhelming final climax. Been There, Done That.

indeed, i've seen it all a zillion times before, in far better series, but, well, that's just me...


all the same, Merry Christmas;

Quick on the heels of the end of the Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale's ending, Sentai's "Holiday Sale" is now happening. Prices on some items are a couple bucks higher than during the previous sale, but overall seems like a continuation of the previous sale.: https://www.sentaifilmworks.com/collections/holiday-sale-2019

And I think I just saw the mailman put my Black Friday Sale order in the mailbox, yipee! :D

As for Patlabor: Ultimate Box Set getting cleared out for so incredibly cheap, word is that Maiden Japan's license of the series & movies expires in January. The DVD and Blu-Ray releases are on blowout presently through RightStuf as I type this, with very little remaining. But if you do a search for Patlabor, you'll find that RightStuf still has the Pioneer Geneon DVD releases of Patlabor Movie 3: WXIII still in inventory from 11 years back!

Will also point out that Maiden Japan label releases tend to mostly get low quantity production runs, with very rare exceptions on well known titles, like Patlabor and Vampire Princess Miyu. If you're curious about what all has been released thus far under the Maiden Japan label, there are printable PDF collector checklists of all their releases to date on both DVD and Blu-Ray formats available here:

Super late reply, sorry. Yep I noticed the Patlabor Ultimate box set was dirt cheap on Amazon USA a few months back. Didn't wait and bought it straight away as it's normally super expensive.

No brainer really. Patlabor 1 and 2 are two of the finest anime films ever made, especially Patlabor 2.

I skimmed this and didn't see anything. BD prices seem mostly higher than previously. A few things I want but will wait for steeper discounts. DVDs are cheap af however.

@rein-o: My prediction is we ultimately never see a vaccine. Eventually we have to get back to work anyway.

I think you are right on with that gypsy.

Heard on NPR one thing about China is that they are always wearing some type of mask and they feel
there were less cases due to this possibility?

So we may all be wearing masks all the time from now on.

2100 minutes for $25? Yeah, the same thing originally cost well over a grand on LD. It will likely never get better or higher quality. I don’t know why they’d ever reprint it to sell it this cheap.

The box itself is typical US release trash of course. No inserts at all. Art reused indiscriminately on discs crammed as tightly into cases as they will go. I only have some Patlabor on LD and I’d say the chances of me getting ninja gaming setup more haven’t really gone up hereor down now that I have the BR. It’s great to loan out or play at parties but I still want the art from the LDs...on paper, not super saturated circular cutout versions of the art.

I was happy with it at $80 or w/e it was it pre-ordered at. Agree that the slip box is absolute crap. As for the case I have worse, mostly anime but terrible packaging for life action stuff as well. I think it's middle of the road.
