I stopped buying anime DVDs years ago because they were prohibitively expensive. 6 DVDs at $30 each or a season/series set for over $100...buuuuuuuuuuull[bleep].
But looking around Best Buy, I realize how out of the loop I've been. You can get the entire series of shows like Escaflowne, Scryed, and Cromartie High School for around $30 each. And with slim packaging, which is a blessing for my limited shelf space.
Even ginormous, 300-episode shows like Dragon Ball Z and Yu Yu Hakusho have got cheap season-sets. It's like they're teasing me. "You haven't bought anything in years, now buy EVERYTHING! You can't afford NOT to!"
So is this a relatively new thing? Is it only certain studios? Only titles of a certain age? Is there anything I'm missing, or are they pretty much as good a deal as they seem?
