YAY! My parcel was finally within my reach last night!
Took advantage of the online sales over at ADVFilms website 2 weeks ago, I was eyeing these babies for quite a long time. I wanted to get 'Noir' and 'Madlax' but budget will not allow me to get it ... pretty sad. Oh well, I managed to get a pretty good deal anyways.
I was quite shocked to see a 'Happy Lesson' OVA DVD inside lol, I was like 'Hey, I didn't order this ... did I? ... No, really, I didn't, dammit! So why the hell is it here? Oh well, reckon it's a freebie *grins*' LOL.
As I mentioned in this post, the total cost for the four box sets in Singapore dollars was S$283 + shipping charges of $33 [I got a 13% discount coupon~~] = S$316. So it's like barely S$80 on average for each box set.
Taking into consideration that 'Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu' is a 13 episodes box set, let's take it as S$50, so S$30 will be averaged out to the other three 20+ episodes box sets to make it S$90 each. Besides, I got a free OVA which is usually worth like S$19.90 so ... it's like S$85 each la lol, which I personally think is quite reasonable.
Unexpected arrival lol. Seriously, I'm not sure if I'll even like this title, ... smells 'haremish', I would be pimping ADVFilms everywhere if they gave me a shoujo-ai title =).
I like the 1 CD in one Volume casing thingy, which means I can bring any Volume casing to out to watch without dragging the whole box set in my sling bag. I'm lazy to buy CD casings, usually I reserved them for my Stefanie Sun CDs, cos I don't wanna spoil my 'signed' albums LOL.
I do not think ODEX has any Volume casings in their 'old' releases [See Chrono Crusade Volume 1], only the recently box sets had [See Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle Volume 1]. When I see See Chrono Crusade Volume 1, I feel like I had to tear the parts out to get the DVDs LOL.
I also don't like how ODEX like to pimp their company name on the cover of the DVD volume sets, it's like 'Okay, I get it already, what's your problem?', at least they ain't doing that for 'Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle'. But then, I'm not sure if they can make it in the Singapore market, their reputation is like, let me put it nicely, SHIT, lol. Really, good luck but I'm not waiting anymore, like many other anime fans, moving into greener pastures. Hopefully, be convinced back that the grass is greener at home.
