Aniplex of America has announced that they plan on re-releasing Gurren Lagann in North America in two new bundles.
Wow... I mean really? Who in Aniplex of America thought that price was a good idea? How many are they expecting to sell here? 2? It's getting to the point where anytime Aniplex licenses anything you may as well just sigh and never plan on buying it or go ahead and start saving your money up because it's pathetic now.
This does nothing but drive people to find alternative ways to get the same content.
Thing is, at this point anyone who cares about the series has already seen it and might own an older DVD release by now. If you had that much disposable income to drop that much cash on one anime release, that equals the price of 10-12 anime series alone, then you probably should be spending your money on something else.
are the serious! over $600 for an anime series? Are the MAD! who would buy this? honestly.. this is not normal!
PB... here i come.
Aniplex f**k you
This reminds me of anime prices back in the late 1990's. Trigun Pioneer dvds were $30 dollars each, when Trigun first appeared for home video. All 8 dvds added up to $240 dollars. The first and last dvd in the original contained 4 episodes, while the other dvds only had 3 episodes. It was a pain collecting them all at a decent price. Back on topic, there's no way I'm buying Gurren Lagann at those prices. They've got to be out their damn minds selling it for that much in this anime economy.
I like Gurren Lagann but this price is way too much. And to those of you who think THIS is expensive... the Fate/Zero BD edition was twice that price (if you bought both parts that is). I sure hope Aniplex of America will stop releasing series that I like, because more than 300$ on an anime series is a no go for me.
Who the hell do you think I am Aniplex!? Some man made of money!?
They must be high.
look at that price gap between the Dvd and blu-ray collection. Does the blu-ray come with gold or something that justify the price? I mean, a blu-ray disc costs like less than 10 cents and I don't think that a bump in resolution would justify such a huge price incremental.
I've been waiting a couple years for a blu ray release. People said it wouldn't happen then a few month's ago I heard rumors of this blu ray release so I waited. After hearing the price I was in disbelief but I felt that when it released in the states I might be paying $60 but $600 , no anime is worth that so I guess i'll never own and just keep the fond memories I had from netflix.
