  1. I have my eye on this piece but I have some questions. Is anybody familiar with Joy Station statues? This piece was apparently already released but I canโ€™t find a single vid or pic of the actual statue. I canโ€™t find anybody actually owning it. Iโ€™m curious as to the quality. Does anybody here have this piece or any Joy Station statues? Seems like a cool piece so Iโ€™m not sure why nobody would own it. I know there are a few other Joy Station statue vids on YouTube but I was definitely trying to get insight into the quality of this specific piece. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!
  2. Welcome to the forums Daxter! Glad you could be here! Hope we can all make this an exciting place to be!
  3. Thank you! It's great to meet you too Wild Emotion! I plan to be very active so I hope to see you around! Thank you!
  4. Thank you for the warm welcome guys I really appreciate it! Super happy to be back!!!
  5. I'm getting back into anime with Code Geass. Heard nothing but great things about the series, so I'm excited to jump right in! Edit: I think I'll wait on Code Geass until the bluray boxset releases next month. Until then I'm going to start the daunting task of making my way through One Piece. Yikes!
  6. Hi saekoo! Welcome to the forum! I still have to watch RE: Zero!
  7. The legend of heroes is one of my fav series of all time as well! Welcome!
  8. Hi everyone! It's been a while since I've been here and to be completely honest, I never thought I would return... I joined the forum in June 2019 and by the beginning of 2021 I came to the decision to sell my entire anime collection. Partly because I wanted the money and partly because I felt I was outgrowing my interest in anime. So, I did the stupid thing and sold the entire lot to someone on Ebay for a steal! And, up until very recently, never looked back... Since then, I have collected other things and basically moved on with my life. I haven't even watched a single anime since! Regardless I hold many of the anime shows I've seen in incredibly high regard. Nothing I've collected since then has stuck with me. I've continuously lost interest in everything. My mind, however, occasionally wonders back to anime. Something has changed, however. Anime has come crashing back into my mind! I've become consumed with the thought of starting over and building something better than I had before! So, I made the first move and purchased the first anime that's going to be the start of my new collection... I am now officially waiting for Stein's Gate to arrive! And I'm SOOO excited! It's going to be like a homecoming for me when it arrives! I added a pic of my old collection. The one I no longer have. And even though it's a slight bummer to not have it anymore and having to start over from scratch, there's something wildly exciting to begin again. And this time, I'm in it for the long haul!
  9. So... 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?
  10. 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!
  11. 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.
  12. 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!
  13. 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.
  14. Hey 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 โ€œnewโ€ never opened anime. I got 6 sets and 5 of them have some sort of marks on one of their Blu-rayโ€™s. Elfen Lied: Love, Chunibyo: Amagi Brilliant Park: Girls Last Tour: And the worst one, Princess Principle: Of course Iโ€™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 Iโ€™ll be sent a box in worse shape but I guess the Blu-rayโ€™s are the most important part. Funny as Iโ€™ve NEVER had or even heard of any problems with video games. (Never has fingerprints or scratches on new games. But Iโ€™ve only had this problem with anime. Seriously how do new discs have fingerprint marks?!
  15. What'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...
