I bought the Human Condition in the last sale, still haven't got round to watching it yet. In fact, my unwatched pile is getting out of hand, it's up to nearly 300 titles nowMy arrow sale order arrived today. I was sweating a bit about the boxes getting damaged in the mail but everything was well packed and arrived on perfect condition. Definitely will be buying more from them in the future.
Why are slipcovers usually not wrapped in the cellophane as well? I feel like the distributors are just asking for them to get damaged.
Causing some appreciation is always good, lol.Wow. For the first time in my life, I actually appreciate Royal Mail.
Yes, it could have been worse, and I've had worse like slipcover being ripped or the whole things crushed with the case cracked with slinters. But, with none of them I actually saw, how they slammed that around. Like, that really really was not good on my nerves. It's not like there isn't anything of value inside of it, if that were the case, I wouldn't have showed up in the first place. Also caused me severe flashbacks back to the times before some of the newer employees had been hired. The old guard like until 5 years ago was a pretty frustrating experience and even among them that lady used to be just in charge of the last least complicated step of collecting the money when everything else had been already handled by colleagues.
That depends on what plastic they use and how it's sealed. The stuff Funi (and Sentai) use on their releases will cause what you describe. Germany uses a whole diffrent sort of plastic (Much more sturdy) and our stuff gets sealed with the slipcover without crushes on the corner. Which however has in turn other issues and is actually rather unhandy here. Like, when you buy stuff you are often forced to unpack it right away as to peel the rating logo away (granted that it's a sticker in the first place), or any backcover paper insert on boxed editions, or it will damage the paper it's attached on later down the line. Or worst case stuff like this happens. And it already happes with something after just a couple of month! But I like to keep my stuff shrinkwrapped until I actually get to watch it. (Dust safer.) And sometimes I switch to a better version after all an resell value is higher when still new and shrinkwrapped.On Blu Rays at least slipcovers with cellophane on them can get crushed on the upper corners thanks to the curvature of a blu ray case. Discotek use cellophane on Slips and unfortunately a few of mine have been damaged on the corners for this reason.
(Ten-out-of-ten infuriating)"Well then, open it."
Grabs a knife and slams it (a bit less forceful) on the parcel.
"Erm, could I please get scissors instead...?" (I always ask that. The other lady often enough simply gives it to me directly without me asking.)
She looks at me, as if I were insane.
"Why, just use the knife."
"Please, I'd like to avoid that if possible."
"But you can't open a package without a knife."
"I once used a knife and accidently scratched the content hard. I'd like to avoid that."
She looks at me like a spoiled child.
