Right, and it's my opinion that
1) Flip Flappers is not as average as Monogatari
2) Flip flappers at MVM's price is more reasonable than Monogatari at AoA's price.
Right I take that on board and I believe in my opinion ep 7-13 of Flip Flappers was some of the biggest waste of my time in history

So you;re happy to spend $150 + Shipping on a series you love

But anyone spending £55 + shipping on a series they love is wrong?

No matter how much I love Bakemonogatari, I could and would never spend $150 + on it

I believe MVM used to do good value CE releases they don’t anymore that’s my problem there place in the UK market for me was between AL and manga, and if I loved Flip flappers ngl I would want all the extras so would have imported Sentais.

I think they do still go good value releases though, take Gate for example, the offered a release with all the extra's and now they're offering a release for £35 for 24 episodes, thats not unreasonable

Flip Flappers Premium Sentai release is on Amazon US for £86.33 after shipping
Its also available from Up1 for £87.47 + Shipping

The asking price of £55 for a very similar release isn't unreasonable. especially when its likely going to get a release for £35 in a few months, or £15 in a few years when it goes on DOTW....

I don't see how MVM has stopped value releases

EDIT.......................

People can spend the money how they see fit, I know people who have all the AoA Monogatari releases, I even own the Madoka AoA release

I'm just saying its a bit unfair to say £55 is unreasonable after spending $150 on a similar amount of episde set

To be honest. If the last few episodes were the biggest waste of time. Then even £15 wouldn't be worth it

Anyway, hope to see some pics soon. Hope there is a spine this time
