This is weeks old now. As I said in my 99p anime topic, haven't been posting them at the time of discovering them due to the issue s the majority on here seem to have with anything non-Disney that's animated.

This sale, just like anime over here, went un-noticed. HMV are connected to ADV and made some HUGE reductions to the most popular animes in existence. Nothing for 99p, most at £5.99, but the differences in price are huge.

For anyone interested, I ordered Elfen Lied Vol 1-4 and Akira: Ultimate Edition.

Next best = £13.99 for 4 out of the 7, £13.47 for Vol. 7.

Find-DVD hasn't got Vol. 4 or Vol. 6 listed and DVD PriceCheck is too **** to check with. But, going on the other prices, there's a 99.9% chance they have the same £5 and £7 price gap all the other volumes do.

Next best = £9.97 + £1.45 delivery for Vol. 1, 6 and 7 and £9.99 for the others.

Buying all 7 volumes works out cheaper than buying the (presumably) ****** M-lock box set.

Le Chevalier D'Eon
Le Chevalier D'Eon: Vol.1 - £5.99 + 10% QuidCo
Le Chevalier D'Eon: Vol.2 - £5.99 + 10% QuidCo

Read or Die
Read or Die: Vol. 1 - £5.99 + 10% QuidCo
Read or Die: Vol. 2 - £5.99 + 10% QuidCo

£11.97 + £1.45 for Vol. 2.

Vol. 1 isn't listed on Find-DVD. There's a pretty high chance HMV will have the best price by some distance going on the price of Vol. 2, but you might want to check for yourself.

Too long. I had to do and bits, it would've took hours to do all the checking and stuff in one go!

Just going other some of the stuff to make sure the prices are still the same - Nearly all of them seem to be.

excellent post, thanks heated and repped

Need to run in and get another Student card as its expired :x

Hope the sale lasts :giggle:

Deserves heat and rep for the work put into the post. Well done Op.

Great post op :thumbsup:

Any particular recomendations?

Just a note, if you're buying series, then dvdpacific.com is usually much cheaper.

Aye...just ordered some Ghibli films for the missus and used my 5% "new website" discount...plus hopefully Quidco will track @ 10% also

Great find, heat and rep added, animé is usually pretty expensive so I don't buy that much but if you finds more good deals please do be afraid to post them

Thanks for your time and effort Tune up. I recommend Last Exile myself... Goes with out saying which others I reconmend. I would buy them If I hadn't already got them. Cheers. *Heat and rep added*.

Elfen Lied is excellent, definitly worth picking up.

Heat added.

Great post op :thumbsup: Any particular recomendations?



ninja scroll & akria are CLASSICS, well recommended:thumbsup:

Me and my girlfirend love to watch The Studio Ghibli anime films!

Can anyone recommend any more films like these? Im not too clued up on the anime scene but i love Akira and ghost in the shell as well.

In terms of value, Elfen Lied is the best:

- All 4 volumes costs £13.47 outside of HMV.
- The R2 M-lock box set costs £37.
- It's only 4 volumes (13 episodes) long.

Evangelion is probably the most loved out of all the series in the sale. It's like the Star Wars of the anime world; always a new release around the corner.

DVD Pacific are selling the box set for £17.46. ADV slimpak box sets exclude most extras, so it isn't really worth ordering the R1 box set when you can get all R2 volumes for £5.99 each + 10% QuidCo + £5/5% off HMV vouchers. Support the UK anime industry when the prices are so close.

You're right about them being cheaper by far usually - It would cost £28.25 x2 for both R2 .hack//SIGN box sets, or £13.47 per volume. You can get the entire series (Anime Legends, M-lock case) for £18 on DVD Pacific.

- All 4 volumes costs £13.47 outside of HMV. the whole set? wheer form may i ask?

thanks
zincee

I can vouch for last exile, as good as evangelion, if not better. I purchased a paul champagne-designed box ages ago for the intent of filling it up with the dvd's, but never got round to do it. Now might be the best chance

Last Exile is excellent - but then all of the titles the OP listed are very good.
