What do you guys want for christmas?

Post by Kaori » Sun Dec 06, 2015 2:19 am

With Christmas right around the corner, what do you guys want for the holidays? As for me, I want the HG Hyakuri along with add-ons 1 and 2 for Iron Blooded Orphans.

I think the last time I got presents from my family for Christmas was when I was like 15 years old.. back in 2007 or so. And then as I grew older I stopped wanting things at all. These days I buy whatever I want whenever I feel like it -- don't really need to wait for someone to gift it to me.

If I had to choose something though, it would be that Kara no Kyoukai blu ray collection. Never in my life will I pay that much money for a single movie set.

o-0 sweet jesus on a motorbike,thats like the super pricey Fate/Stay boxsets that cost a bomb. Why can't they just sell the movies individually instead of wanting so much, would make it more accessible.

Dahack? Why don't you guys pay upfront with cash? I always pay for my tuition in full, and sometimes I get change.

I remember that ridiculous price for that blu-ray box set. Thank you Aniplex of America T_T
People laughed and there was a backlash at the price. Doubt its even selling like hot cakes.

Unfortunately thats their marketing strategy, only sell afew at a crazy price to make ends meet which much work otherwise you'd think Aniplex would've reverted their practices to conventional prices ^^' The Fate/Stay sets were the same .-.

The fate sets were like $150 a pop, still expensive. But the regular dvd versions were like $60, so affordable. The Kara no Kyoukai sets that were on dvd and affordable became discontinued within 9 months and now the show is only available for half a grand. Not to mention that it's subbed only. It seems AoA is trying to make less money.

Their business practices also fuel pirating, something that other companies are working hard to prevent. Funi, Viz, and Sentai are going out of their way to stream, license, broadcast dub, and release anime as fast as possible for affordable prices and many outlets. They are making watching and owning anime very easy and convenient -- hence encouraging people to stream it legally and so on. But the things Aniplex does contradicts everyone's efforts when they put a subtitiled show for $350 and only available though niche outlets. Big companies don't carry their stuff. So people say "screw it, I can watch a subtitled anime online for free"

*checks* Ah those are for Fate/Zero, I was referring to Unlimited Blade Works which are priced around the $400 mark each (http://en.animate-onlineshop.jp/index.p ... ts_id=5803) (http://en.animate-onlineshop.jp/index.p ... ts_id=5334) xD It may seem like it but surely they must be doing okay if they haven't changed tactics,perhaps people see these sets get rare quickly so atleast afew fans pick them up during their intial release @.@

^^' we can only hope another company either in the UK/Australia picks up the series for normal priced boxsets.

You can say that again, not everybody would pay that price let be able to, no wonder people pirate series picked up by them :/ Luckily several of their titles I get at normal price or they reach the UK so aren't crazy expensive xD You got that right, those companies have been doing their utmost to get anime to everyone,even re-releasing some series aswell compared to AoA who if you are lucky,somewhere down the line will release standard editions :/

This one camera that I had my eye on went on sale, so I ended up buying it for myself, so that was my present. Otherwise a pretty average day, nothing special.

I should rephrase that.. I got it for Christmas because I bought it myself. I actually didn't end up getting anything for Christmas other than what I decided to buy for myself lol.
