Getting rid of anime collectionSo... I've come to the tough decision that I need to sell of my entire anime collection. Does anybody have tips on how to go about doing that? Is there anywhere specific any of you could recommend?
Just thought I'd let you guys know that Sentai responded to my initial message. So I'm going to send them the pics and we'll go from there. Sounds like Sentai wants me to return them for replacements. Fingers crossed everything goes off without a hitch!
Honestly I'd be okay with them sending just the discs in dvd cases. Seriously as long as the discs arrive to me in new shape I'd prefer that. My LE boxes themselves came in good shape and I don't want to chance getting different LE's in worse shape. And what else is weird is I've checked all the other discs in each set and they're all good. No scratches or fingerprints to speak of. So it was just basically one disc with each set....SO odd! So again I don't want to risk getting other sets with bad discs. And yeah I think they come from the same place as well. They have the same shipping label and return address I believe. I'm not sure how this works as all the discs seem different than their regular releases and appear to be made specifically for the LE sets. For example the art on the Elfen Lied steelbook disc is different from the regular Blu-ray disc release. Also all the discs basically say "limited edition" on them so it's not like they can give me regular discs. Do the manufacturers make extra discs just in case of damaged LE's? Am I suppose to send all my LE's back and they send me different ones? I honestly don't want that. What would they even do with my open sets after they get them back? Another thing is I have no idea where to get my anime from if not for Rightstuf or Sentai. I want all my anime pristine and brand new and I adore the limited edition sets with the chipboard boxes and extras. Where else can I get those? Where do you buy from Beocat? Amazon doesn't ship out in safe boxes usually. Usually they're packaging is crap. Ebay isn't great and doesn't have deals usually. Where else can I go? That last one has fingerprints ALL OVER IT! When I buy brand new I expect my discs to be free of smudges and scratches. All my other anime, movie, videogame discs look flawless. Even the ones I've had for years and have played relentlessly! Seriously if you were to check my Ni No Kuni disc you would think it's brand new. It's completely clean. And I've put over 120 hours into that game! Trust me Ill update you guys with how this plays out. I'm hoping Sentai/Righstuf prove to me why I should continue buying from them. If they make this right I'll for sure sing their praises and continue to spend all my hard-earned money with them.
I went ahead and contacted Sentai. The only thing I can conclude to is that the fingerprints happened from the factory when the workers put the discs into the cases.... Honestly I'm at a loss. I saw this years ago with my your name order from Rightstuf. I don't remember what I did at the time. If I recall it was on the bonus soundtrack CD and I think I completely forgot to set things straight. My loss. Not again. It's definitely bothering me. Especially when I literally got 5 sets with issues!
Well they were purchased directly from Sentiafilmworks as brand new. And they were all plastic wrapped. Could Sentai be really selling used products as brand new? I haven't felt them as I'm afraid to touch them. I never touch the bottoms of discs. I'm going to contact them tonight cause I find this unacceptable. Hopefully they can help me out cause that seriously put a damper on my holiday purchase.
Scratches and fingerprints on new Blurays
Fireduck posted a topic in Anime DiscussionHey guys. So I just wanted to get advise and thoughts on options based on your past experiences. So I just received my anime haul from Sentai and unfortunately I noticed fingerprints and some scratches on some of my “new” never opened anime. I got 6 sets and 5 of them have some sort of marks on one of their Blu-ray’s. Elfen Lied: Love, Chunibyo: Amagi Brilliant Park: Girls Last Tour: And the worst one, Princess Principle: Of course I’m going to contact Sentai but just wanted to know if others have experienced this and what Sentai or even Rightstuf did for you. Being these are all LE sets does make me nervous I’ll be sent a box in worse shape but I guess the Blu-ray’s are the most important part. Funny as I’ve NEVER had or even heard of any problems with video games. (Never has fingerprints or scratches on new games. But I’ve only had this problem with anime. Seriously how do new discs have fingerprint marks?!
Highschool dxd release date
Fireduck replied to Orthrus's topic in Anime DiscussionWhat's the story on this? I know they had issues going into season 4 but I'm just wondering what the hold is on season 5. I know DXD must be selling well cause not only have they gone 4 seasons deep but that season 4 LE sold out SUPER fast after preorder and never came back into stock. Unless the previous seasons stopped selling well and that's why season 4 sold out so fast...cause they made an extremely small print run. I'm actually very curious. Why did season 4 sell out so incredibly fast? It seemed to sell out way less than a years time...
Sounds like a plan!
Sentai Filmworks Sale
Fireduck replied to Fireduck's topic in Anime DiscussionJust received my first winter holiday Anime haul! I still have 5 more things coming but I’m already so happy! My Collection update: Some things are out of order as I think I’m going to update my stuff into genre. And I haven’t started that yet. I’m going to organize and catalogue everything probably this week.
Hell yeah let's do it! haha! I was thinking I could single handedly get this place jiving but if we had an active forum army maybe we could make it happen Huh! Wow, I might incorporate some of these ideas into my collection. I've been struggling with what I want to do in the future. I was going to ask the people who separate their regular blurays from their LE sets how they do that cause what if they have a series with multiple seasons where they have one season on LE and the other season as a regular release. (Maybe they missed the LE set for that particular season or whatever the case) do they keep the seasons separate or do they ruin their flow of LE sets with the occasional reg bluray thrown in? See neither would work so I'm genuinely curious about that. It looks like separating into genre is a great idea. Horror, Fighting, magical girl, harem etc. I might go for that personally with some variations. I'm SO trying to find a way to be able to keep track of my shows that way I can find them easily once I get a massive collection. Gonna do my best.
I love this forum but I wish it were more populated. Before anime my obsession was statues and I was a regular on statueforum. This would have had 20+ responses by now. I guess I have to get use to the slower forums here... Such is life! I guess I’ll just have to let my collection evolve in its own way. Though sometimes I can be OCD so we’ll see how that fits into my collection haha!
How do you organize your Anime?
Fireduck posted a topic in Anime DiscussionAs my bluray collection grows I've pondered a dilemma that I'll have to face sooner than later....,adjusting the way I display my anime. As of right now my anime collection is small and easy to manipulate. So I have it all together in Alphabetical order. Now I realize things will eventually get more complicated. What will I do when I have multiple shelves of anime, and I get that new "A" release? Will I adjust and move my entire collection down one slot to put that "A" title with the rest? Eventually that will probably take me hours to do. So I'm wondering if I should be ready to change up my display. What do you guys do? Forgot to add "other" option to the poll. So if you do something I didn't list, let me know.
What's the weather like where you are?
Fireduck replied to VampireKnight19's topic in Chit ChatIt's raining here in California. We're going to have a wet thanksgiving. But I love rain and cold weather so I'm happy!

What anime are you watching now?
Fireduck replied to Optic's topic in Anime DiscussionCurrently on episode 6 of Golden Kamuy. Really like it so far. Need to go back to Made in Abyss and Freezing since I just stopped in the middle. Nothing wrong with them. Just got busy with life and then when I went back to watching anime I choose to start Golden Kamuy since I just received my LE from Rightstuf. Looking at my shelf I have SOOO much anime I need to watch...jeez....
