The Equivalent Exchange Trading Thread


State Alchemist

The law of the Equivalent Exchange Thread is: In order to obtain something, something of equal value must be lost (since we aren't in the business of creating or destroying anime).

What is this thread? This is a trading thread to list anime (or manga) which you no longer want but would happily give to others, and in exchange they will give anime (or manga) of equal value to you, the people. This does not necessarily mean monetary value; what something is worth to any one person is entirely subjective, and the final details of any exchange are to be left largely up to you. Trade a DVD for a DVD. Trade a DVD for a blu-ray. Trade ten blu-rays for a DVD if you like (though I wouldn't recommend it). It is a thread for the relaxed and free exchange of low-value items sat gathering dust on your shelves which you are no longer using and would otherwise simply give away. It is a thread for helping others discover things that they may not have considered watching and perhaps wouldn't blind-buy, and discovering things yourself by taking a chance on something new. If there are specific things you would like to find, feel free to list things you are looking for alongside your own items, but this is not necessary. The hope is that by multiple people listing what they have, people will find things in these lists that they want and then work out an exchange with each other (preferably in the thread rather than over PMs so that others are aware what is in the process of being traded, and give people a feel for the marketplace).

What this thread is not: This is not intended to be a thread in which you can find or trade high-value items. It is not a thread for haggling unfairly because you think your loose DVD copy of Tales from Earthsea is worth someone else's blu-ray Hyouka CE in exchange. In fact I'd go so far as to say the Hyouka CE shouldn't be here at all; if you "know what you have" and believe it to be worth anything north of around £5 cash value in CeX, just sell it for money and use the money to buy the things you want. If you do decide to trade anything valuable, you do so at your own risk. Royal Mail covers all parcels up to the value of £20 (even the untracked 2nd class ones) as long as you retain proof of posting. If you want to send anything worth more please make sure you declare a higher value and send it via tracking, but my preference, as with not listing things you wouldn't be prepared to give away, would be for people not to send anything they aren't prepared to lose.

Other Points:

Postage costs are at the discretion the parties involved.
My suggested method of handling postage is for everyone to simply cover the cost of posting their own items to their recipient so no money at all is required to change hands, but if there would be a large discrepancy in postal charges (such as someone sending items in a large box in return for items in a padded envelope) then how or whether those costs are shared is up to you. To avoid any issues, please don't post anything or send any money until you have come to an agreement.

Be fair, be kind. If someone doesn't want to trade with you for any reason, respect their decision; all trades should be by mutual consent. Be honest about the condition and region code of any discs. Obviously don't try to rip anyone off. This is about sharing your surplus anime (and manga) with others, not getting one over on other people (and if it works as intended, nothing listed here will be worth stealing anyway). If you happen to see something listed for trade that you'd really like but don't have anything to trade for it (or anything to trade they don't already have), PM the person and see if they would sell to you for a fair price, or perhaps even simply give it to you. With any sales, the standard rules of the AUKN Marketplace apply.

This is everything I have to offer, for now, there will be more to come. I am mostly interested in titles that are only available on DVD, and also looking for standard editions of various well-regarded/popular anime movies on Blu-ray that I would part with say, five DVD movies or a DVD series that has low trade-in value for Only Yesterday or Pom Poko (just two examples) on Blu-ray and as long as it has the case and artwork I don't mind if no slipcover so you don't mind trading as their CEX value is not massive mostly atm. I completely agree with what @ayase said about not trying to wrangle Hyouka CEs and the like out of people (but do recommend that everyone here at least try watching Hyouka, it's pretty darn great) :)

I've got some wares to offer up here as well: a small selection of codes for digital copies of anime.

Here are the codes up for offer:

  • Akira

  • Mob Psycho 100 season 2
  • SSSS.Gridman
  • Steins;Gate: Load Region of Deja Vu movie

I'm posting here in The Equivalent Exchange Trading Thread, but here's the twist: I bought the above releases for the Blu-ray discs and not for the digital copies, and I have no intention of using them. Given that, they're of no value to me. So if you want any of the above codes, you have to give me something of equal value. In this case: nothing.

So just give me a PM, and I'll PM you back your code of choice.

Of course, I could've just posted this in the giveaways thread... but then it wouldn't be an "equivalent exchange", would it? 😜

Codes will be crossed out if/when they're claimed. Thanks for reading. 😉👍

I've relisted the Funimation code for SSSS.Gridman if anyone's interested, and I'll point out while I'm here that the Akira iTunes one expires at the end of October.

(I'm not having any luck even giving them away. 😅)
