Pricey Anime


This weekend I attended my first ever Anime Convention. It was amazing and wonderful and I will make a post about that later. What I want to talk about right now is the fact that to buy some anime it is completely insane. Take for instance Kill la Kill, it was awesome. I loved Kill la Kill it would be great to own on Blu Ray, but do you know how much that costs? I certainly did not, I was expecting to maybe spend $100 to get all 24 episodes. I was very mistaken. The price for the first disk in a 5 disk set is $40 that is $10 per episode of Kill la Kill. When I can go to Crunchyroll and watch it for free. ($60 a year / 24 episodes = $2.50 per episode) So I can watch it for 1/4 the price of if I were to buy it and Crunchyroll has more than just Kill la Kill on it. I’m not really sure if I should blame Aniplex who has the rights to sell Kill la Kill in America or the production studio that made it. Aniplex has a history of jacking up prices on anime. All I know is that for a college student buying anime seems a little out of reach. What are your thoughts about the price of anime? Do you think its fair?

One thought on “Pricey Anime

  1. Kill la Kill is licensed by Aniplex of America and all of their products are expensive to buy. When my little cousin broke my first disc for Gurren Lagann Bandai Anime Legends I decided I would replace it or upgrade it to bluray. $140 for the DVD set, $550 for the bluray set and $50 for each individual volume of the bluray for a total of $250. I don’t want to break the bank for 1 disc replacement.
