Points to ADV for putting good shows on DVDs for sale?

From Anime Corporation News

ADV Films New Release Sale 

ADV is celebrating their 15th anniversary by charing only $15 for the volume 1 releases of Air, Innocent Venus, Red Garden, and Welcome to the NHK.

Sale. 

Ray’s take: All right, 3/5 points for trying. But take a good look and one can see that Air and Welcome to the NHK are in there. Red Garden has an interesting concept similar to Disney. I don’t know much about Innocent Venus. But for American DVDs $15 per DVD is extremely cheap. If the DVD productions are done right then this is actually a good deal.

  1. You do realize that there is a sale for more than just volume one DVDs. And why the hell would you buy DVDs for a series a volume at a time. It will cost you too much doing it that way. Wait until the box set comes out. It will be cheaper that way in the long run.

    Only thing is that I’m not sure every series gets a boxset. I’ve not really been much of buyer of anime DVDs until recently.

  2. Yeah, but… if no one ever bought volume one DVDs, they’d go out of business. Dubbing is expensive, even though there are people out there who don’t listen to dubs (myself included) they still have to make them for the majority. Sales of individual volumes are the only way they can recoup those costs. I usually wait for box sets myself, but I do buy individuals too when I can.
