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?
