<In my attempt to collect all FMA DVD threads into one sub-forum, I'm moving this thread from FMA Anime forum section front to FMA Anime Japanese Audience sub-forum. 02/19/07 ~Tombow>
Not to sound miserly or anything, but I feel the prices for FMA DVDs to be startlingly high...at least by comparison, anyway. $35 will buy you the complete 2nd Season of, say, The Pretender, a total of 21 episodes, but $40 would only buy you 8 FMA episodes, 4 per $20 disk. Continuing with the comparison, a standard Pretender episode is about 45 minutes, whereas a FMA episode is aprox. 25 minutes. Excuse me, but I find that a tad expensive. Now, 4 episodes for $10 or something would be far more reasonable.
Or is it?
The only thing I know of one the DVDs are the episodes. What I want to know is, what else is there? What bonus features justify the price tag?
Is it worth it, or should I sit back and weight for when the prices go down a year or so from now?
Attention Manga Lust fans: Lust is dead. Finished. Kaput. Joined the Choir Invisible. Roy Mustang incinerated her repeatedly until her Philosopher's Stone dried up and dissolved into nothingness ("Mu" for you Japanese cultural enthusiasts). And she will remain killed off, written out of the plot. Greed was reincarnated because Father saved his Philosopher's Stone and had a guinea pig on hand. Lust is gone. Stop trying to play God with the plot line and bring her back at every possibly junction. In the event that Hiromu Arakawa can skillfully maneuver around this narrative plot hole, I will eat my words with a pinch of salt.

Well, I only pay 20 bucks at Best Buy... and yeah, also, I have a job... and yeah ._. I really have no problems with anime now since there's this gift called Best Buy and now McDonald's has that BestBuy buck deal with the large value meals and I usually get three best buy bucks all the time so I go out and buy anime for 17 instead of 20. lol ._.
