Americans are rich lol, no wonder they are a super power of this world


Wow dude, are you wrong. America is 17 trillion dollars in debt right now. In fact, our country practically belongs to China, LOL.


All your country are belong to us.

Anyway, that disproved many theories of anime industry dying because of piracy in NA. I bet more than 95% of the buyers have actually watched the movies as subtitled torrents firsthand.

If it wasn't this expensive and if I actually owned a Blu-ray...
bla bla bla
The endless debate between fans and haters. At one point, after spending a lot of time on MAL, you just realize it's totally pointless.

Saw that comin', if there were actually included english subs, it's not surprising. Now the next step, which I really want, is to translate the novel to english. I just... have to get it. Price doesn't matter.

Let me put up a manifesto

The fact that some Americans can afford to blow $300 on a bunch of DVDs while the rest of the population live in squalor just goes to show that the rich-poor divide is widening. Can we stand for this? Should we stand for this?

*cue fiery rhetoric about uprisings and a Marxist utopia*

But seriously, it's a serious problem when a rich-poor gap grows too wide. The Marxists would call for a revolution, the optimists would work harder in hopes to get richer and I would buy the damned DVD, create loads of bootleg copies and sell them for $150 each to widen the rich-poor gap

I thought this was priced at around $500 last time I checked? But $300 is still a bit much...There's got to be a gajillion extra content in order for that to be worth it.

Thank you losers with money to burn, you're telling them it's ok to charge such a ridiculous price. You wanna know why anime is so damn expensive? Because you idiots continue to buy it anyways! Vote with your wallets people...


Sounds like someone is just sore he/she couldn't buy the set be he/she doesn't have such an income to be able to afford it.

Poor you.
Please stop.

I'm one of those buyers. Also, this thing is $400, not $300. Not sure where everyone else bought it from, lol.

To not understand the meaning of a collection or material possession, I fear for your future.

Glad I pre-ordered mine now. I'm not too glad with some of the translation choices, but every official English release has something that irks me. I wish the translators had played Mirror-Moon's F/SN, haha. That is, if it was a NA firm who did the TLing.

Imagine if they had made it less expensive, and or at least done a proper re-master.

Just burn it on a blu-ray or dvd . Don't worry about my future, it's far better than those who waste money just to have the official box and disks.

Don't get me wrong though, I'm not again collecting stuff but with price like these it's like throwing money outside your windows.

The same could be said for purchasing an expensive internet connection to fulfil the same purpose.

If you knew how to budget, you probably would know that the people buying this set probably either have a disposable income, are good at saving or have a particular part of their income dedicated to hobbies. Only those who can't effectively manage their funds would claim it to be a waste.

Internet doesn't cost 400$, it's 100 time cheaper and you can get all anime. You can't even compare them. Plus Internet isn't only for downling anime you know :)

So your answer is to laugh at those who aren't privileged enough to be able to blow money on mere entertainment? I guess us poor folk should just be denied any form of distractions because we are, you know, poor and insignificant.
