    Does anyone know a good website to buy anime from? The bestbuy near my house is shithouse and carries like DBZ and Bleach and that is it :/ Would like a reliable website to order some stuff from, need to start working on my DVD library again, now that I am back in the States and the dvds actually come with subtitles.

    Rightstuf.com They can even get packages to alaska in 3 days of shipping from the 5 dollar ship speed. Also they have a very nice thing where you can get an extra 10% off most items for 12 bucks for a year as well as regular sales of up to 40% off and the BEST part they DON;T deal in bootlegs. Hell Funimation used to be partnered with them and they are still run by Nozomi. They'll even ship preorders pre street date(i once got a dragonball box set 3 weeks before street date and it was the same one you get at best buy so no bootleg there).

    Also yeah i feel you're pain about best buy. Though i'd moved to rightsuf before so useful. Also didn;t help that i already owned over half the series they had before they even went down to 2 shelves and were still at 4-8. Oh and yes i DID count by hand they had like 80 something different series and i owned over 50 of em and were talking individual series not even replica boxsets(alot of mine were even the half-1/4 season set models while theres were full but i just counted em as full seeing as how it;s the same item just repackaged) but then with over 20k worth of anime and manga makes sense i'd have them beat. Though my best buy does still stock some Blu Ray series and stuff like Phantom of the requiem and sacred blacksmith even got a copy of Sekirei there(i had a gift card to blow since the headphones i was looking for didn't pan out).

    But i hope this helps ya trust me man check em out and be ready to lose you're whole income. Also BEWARE THE DAILY DEALS.

    Oh forgot to mention they even have plushes pillow cases clothing articles accesories and so on. I even got a shinigami Bini/Ski Mask from Soul Eater as well as Shanas necklace among other items. So the stores like shopping at a cheap convention

    I've heard of it before, but this makes it sound pretty great. Think there would be any issues shipping to out of the country, though?
    Looks like a pretty good selection...

    Ok I'm pretty hyped for this now. Mainly from Sagan-man's description, also from this.

    From what i recall they say they do international orders as well. Just for you know more shipping.

    Okay copy pasted from their site.

    International Customers

    International shipments are sent via our shipping partners. If you would like us to use a specific carrier, please contact us in advance for an estimate.

    Sorry, if you are an international customer, we must ship to your billing address only.

    For first time international customers, for security purposes we require a copy of a form of ID (can be drivers license, passport, utility bill, etc.) which shows your address along with a photocopy of BOTH sides of your credit card. You may obscure a block of digits on the copy if you wish. Customer Service can provide you with a secure link to upload this information if you have it available as a scan, or you may fax it to us.

    Shipping companies may charge a fee for delivering your package to a foreign country. Such fees and customs duties are not included in our shipping price, and are your responsibility.

    We will not be responsible for seized shipments, and cannot provide refunds for seized products. Please check to make sure you are in compliance with all local laws if you are ordering an adult product(s).

    Backordered items usually take an average of 10-14 business days. If it is an extremely popular item, or it is an imported item, it may take longer.

    For current rates, please see our Shipping Info Page.

    Backordered items usually take an average of 10-14 business days. If it is an extremely popular item, or it is an imported item, it may take longer.

    I hope this helps.




    EDIT forgot to add that their company brand sales(like when they do all Funimation or Sentai Filmworks items sales) applies to preorders as well so you cane even pre order something during a sale and get it for sale price.

    Surprised no one had mentioned Scrapped Princess before, it was probably the #1 or #2 most recommended anime back in like 03-05 (much like how everyone says watch code geass or fma brotherhood now)

    Hehe... I saw Claymore on that list... that was the first anime i watched fully through, and one of my favorites.
    Another good horror anime i saw was "Shikabane Hime (Corpse Princess)." It's about people that are brought back from the dead as shikabane hime to fight other undead (shikabane)... If you liked Claymore you might like this. Also a good site to watch them or browse is FUNimation.com, which has a large selection of SUB/DUB animes.

    If you loved Claymore you'll most likley like Berserk(which i would rate slightly higher than Claymore) though both are exclent.
    On a side note, theres been rumors that they might be making another series for claymore.

    No, he couldn't be alive. He was stabbed through the heart. He didn't have a code, if he did have a code he would not have been able to cast a geass on Schnizel at the end. As was learned from when they showed CC's past, when she gained her curse mark she lost her geass powers. Same thing happened to the Emperor. Note he did not cast another geass on Lelouch OR on Suzaku after attaining VV's curse mark.

    CC was merely talking into the sky....you know like people tend to do when they "talk" to the dead.

    I'm guessing you forgot that C.C CAN talk to tthe dead via C's world if i recall right. In short she probably was talking to lulu.

    that would still make him dead would it not?

    No she can not talk to the dead, at least there was nothing in the story that lead us to believe that. C's world was where her memories were stored and Lelouch was able to learn of her past.

    You may be thinking of Akatosh (sp?) when Lelouch's mother, who's spirit was bound to the heart of a girl who's name I can't think of, was able to communicate with Lelouch and the others during the finale with the Emperor.

    Yeah i was and that world is LINKED with C's world in a very strange way. The fact is that as i saw it C's world was linked to the other world(akatosh if i recall right was the weapon name not the worlds). Also i believe the name you are looking for is Anya.

    Well consider that the codeholder Lelouch may or may not have obtained his code from was not the same person who gave him his geass, thus the circumstances may be different all things considered. And I know it's a very slim, very wistful chance, but it seems as though they deliberately left bread crumbs to lead us to the conclusion that he was alive (The Paper Crane!). I don't care what the director said, Sunrise lies like a dachsund in a cabbage patch.

    Anya
    She had so much potential... Oh well.

    It's suggested that you get Code Geass (hence the title) if you received Geass and Code from different people. Charles got his code and geass from VV, CC got her code and geass from that nun, Lelouch got his geass from CC and his code from Charles

    iirc Lelouch was confirmed dead by Sunrise themselves, even though there was a lot of fan speculation.

    I'm pretty sure they won't bring him back. As for the fan fiction that Charles gave his code to Lelouch in the Ragnarok connection is in my opinion total bollox. It got me thinking, however, if Lulu really was alive, how would the story develop. I mean, his goal - after having everything taken from him - was to focus the entire world's hate onto himself so that the world unites and there's a better tomorrow for Nunnally.

    Don't get me wrong, I'd love to see more Code Geass with Lulu but that just won't happen, it won't be the same anyways without Shirley and the gang. It was an epic anime and will forever be for me.

    As for the World of C, iirc the person that gave the Geass has a connection with the other person in the world, regardless of whether or not the receiver is dead/alive or whatnot. CC gave a Geass to Lulu's mom remember? And she transferred and locked her conscience in that little girl you were talking about. CC was still talking to Lulu's mom in the World of C.

    And anyways, if Lulu was alive and got to walk away I don't think there's a viable continuation unless they fast forward while Lulu is immortal.

    Thoughts?

    The director said that he is dead, and he also said Nunnally has superpowers and can see into people's hearts, so I've chosen just to ignore him
