UK Anime Blu-ray & DVD Bargains

#1
I think it would be good if people could keep an eye out and then inform everyone of when they see cheap deals on UK animé DVDs, like the current Play.com sale for instance.

To start this off, I'll say that the next HMV sale (starting 27th September?) will include a lot of Manga releases, probably only in larger stores and then in relatively small quantities, but it might be worth checking out.
I think they're the same titles as in the Play sale, maybe not as cheap but perhaps some of you aren't able to buy on-line...

My local HMV and Virgin Megastores (which are on the same high street) have quite an impressive amount of anime and so does my local Forbidden Plant (comic store, has anime dvds and quite a few manga books)(and its also on the same street).

Just in case you don't check out ukanime.com regularly, they've posted news of Amazon.co.uk offering the Samurai X box set for £10.97, which I think you'll agree, is an eye-popping bargain.
Go spend!
I've had a quick look through the site and no other cheap animé seems better than other sites, apart from a few of the later volumes of Gasaraki are going for £6. If anyone sees any other crazy deals post them here.

Yesterday, in budget music and DVD shop Music Zone in Chester, I saw the whole of Noir, the orignal DVD editions of Neon Genesis Evangelion, Akira, a few Final Fantasy: Unlimted and the whole of Hellsing for £10 each, so local branches may have the same DVDs on offer.

Amazon are doing quite a few ADV titles for £10.97, RahXephon 1-6, Angelic Layer 1-2, Burn Up Excess, Noir, Nadesico, Full Metal Panic 1-5, Dai-Guard, etc. A lot of movies are down to £8.97 as well (Spirited Away, Grave of the Fireflies, Ghost in the Shell).

Being a poor student ( :cry: ) I usually wait for really cheap anime to come up on ebay, e.g. the Cowboy Bebop movie for ~£3 inc. P+P. The stuff I've bought has tended to be good quality.

play.com are doing a Easter sale and there is 65 titles in the sale. The price are different but most are around £10.99 or less.

There are some good titles in here tho they are mostly dvds that came out early last year from ADV. Im thinking about getthing some of these titles myself
