Where to Buy Online
You can buy ADV films releases from their web site, although it’s a lot harder to navigation after a horrible site redesign meant only to decrease usability and accessibility. Be sure to check out their Daily Special as you can sometimes find very good deals.
A lot of hard-to-find items, as well as common items, are sold at Anime Corner Store, a legit shop with over ten years of experience selling anime online.
You can find series I’ve posted commentary on at the following locations. Note that Amazon links are affiliate links. Other links are not. All prices are in US dollars at the time I added or last checked the link, and may change on the linked to sites over time.
- A Little Snow Fairy Sugar
- As Told By Ginger
- The overall series is not for sale, but you can find some episodes on two DVD releases. Your best bet would be to buy the two together ($17.99, Amazon.com).
- Bottle Fairy
- Released as two DVDs, you can buy the first and the second from Amazon.com (total $43.98, Amazon.com), but that’s just way too much. You can buy elsewhere, both Spring and Summer and Autumn and Winter (total $39.98, BestBuy.com), which is a little less, but keep in mind Amazon.com will give you free shipping and probably no sales tax. I’m not sure what Best Buy has to offer in these two areas. There’s always a third option, as well ($39.96, AnimeCornerStore.com). At least there’s the image album CD for a low price ($5.99, RightStuf.com)
- Petite Princess Yucie
- Buying the six DVDs with DVD extras (such as creditless intros and outros) will set you back over $160. I say, go for the five DVD thinpack set ($53.99, Amazon.com). You find can it for a little more, elsewhere ($59.98, ADVFilms.com), but check ADVFilms’s prices just after Black Friday (end of November) to find phenomenal discounts. Otherwise, there are cheaper places to buy from ($44.98, AnimeCornerStore.com).
- Princess Tutu
- The box set, available from ADVFilms for $49.98 will cost a significantly lot less than buying the DVDs separately. I don’t know if the box set strips out all bonuses, but if it does, I recommend buying the DVDs separately when ADVFilms has them marked down after Thanksgiving (end of November, start of December). Also, don’t let the artwork on the box fool you. It’s a fitting series for children to view. ADVFilms has this thing about sometimes putting on artwork which misrepresents a series…
- Seven of Seven
- Go for the box set, and save money. Amazon sells it for $35.99, and Anime Corner Store sells it for $29.98.
