Ugh. Dat Madoka. That's a bloody terrible price for a 12 episode show. Then again, what do we expect from Aniplex these days?
Epecting something is ridiculous , their price model is the same for ages and it will never change, you should get used to it now...HdE said:Ugh. Dat Madoka. That's a bloody terrible price for a 12 episode show. Then again, what do we expect from Aniplex these days?
I certainly got used to it back when I picked up those three Madoka CEs three years ago. Of course this sentence is going to cause a **** load of complaints because this is Aniplex.Iluvatar said:Expecting something is ridiculous , their price model is the same for ages and it will never change, you should get used to it now...HdE said:Ugh.

Begging your pardon, but I'll think what I like about Aniplex, and I'll continue to say what I think here.Iluvatar said:Epecting something is ridiculous , their price model is the same for ages and it will never change, you should get used to it now...
I'd love to own the DRR!! sets with OVAs, are the OVAs on the DVDs and are their DVDs any cheaper?thedoctor2016 said:
Rightstuf notes the OVAs are included on the DVD sets. SRP for each one is $59.98 ($49.98 for Rightstuf).Buzz201 said:I'd love to own the DRR!! sets with OVAs, are the OVAs on the DVDs and are their DVDs any cheaper?thedoctor2016 said:
Yep, I don't care how much they charge for their sets as long as they don't force other companies who license the shows from them to do crappy things, but that's exactly what they do. %$&£ Aniplex.thedoctor2016 said:
To be honest, I think the entire Aniplex thread is a little kiss-****.Re: [Overseas] The Aniplex Thread
I do feel splitting this off is a bit odd, I get people complaining about price can get annoying but the Anime Limited thread has just as many complaints and that doesn't get it's own thread with a bitchy sounding title lol guess the arbiter gets to decide what discussion is acceptable for the Aniplex Discussion thread lol.
So there are faults on several sets then? At those prices, any faults at all are simply not good enough. And quite frankly, the fact AoA are getting preferential treatment, when Kaze would have been hung, drawn and quartered for similar errors, really disappoints me. Especially given their predatory and exclusionary business practices.Are there any faults with these Aniplex sets?
Pretty much 99% of the Aniplex sets have no defects whatsoever.
Oreimo 2 has a couple subtitle issues but it shouldn't ruin the experience.
There are a couple shows that contain English Dolby Digital 2.0 audio on the Blu-ray sets due to space limitations and certain nonsense:
- Aldnoah.Zero: Set 1-2
- Fate/Zero: Set 1-2
- Sword Art Online: Set 1-4
Yeah as I've said earlier, I'm getting fed up of people on the internet complaining over the same thing every time. The target audience for the main thread were towards those curious as to what the distributor has and those interested in collecting/buying certain shows they have on offer. The other thread that I had made (which was lost due to being made between Dec 2015 and June 2016) was aimed towards those who wants to complain about them in particular to keep the two big discussions separate.The threads for Aniplex get split off because there's a long history of every Aniplex-related announcement turning into an incendiary price war which never goes anywhere since those unhappy with the pricing remain unhappy and ignored by Aniplex while those happy remain happy and ignored by Aniplex. The recent pricing discussions in the AL thread were also split off but AL actually listen to our feedback which makes the situation a little less like a perpetual loop of suffering.
(Pretty sure the title I used when I made the split was different and I'll rectify in a sec; there was an old general Aniplex ranting thread in the old AUKN forums and it seemed to work ok with one thread for actual Aniplex announcements and another for commentary on how annoying it all is.)
Aniplex is never not going to be controversial, because of how exclusionary their business practices are and the level of title they acquire. The fact they seem to want to export those business practices to markets where it's highly probable they will not work, suggests that they don't even really care about whether products are financially successful or not. (Jerome has said on Twitter the UK does not like multi-part releases, and there's a reason AL were avoiding them for so long.)But it's like the Free stuff it always seems to repeat itself.
