^^ The Steelbook for Hellsing is down to 16000 Yen (~ $145usd) (@Amz.jp). Still too rich for a dble dip imho. If it ever reaches $100usd I'll probably cave.

I know quite a few of you do have at least a couple of true Japanese releases in your collections. Unfortunately, many times it can be quite unclear whether a certain title is English-friendly or not. I thought maybe other Japanese anime collectors in the forum here could use this thread to help inform other interested parties of what is actually available to import directly from Japan to the English-speaking anime fan, in the course of discussion in this thread.

I only started collecting anime a little over a year ago, and I find my collecting habits have already begun favoring the purchase of the actual Japanese releases whenever possible - if they happen to be English-friendly, and if they are anywhere near affordable! Japanese releases can be a bit daunting with their pricing structure, but still some collectors feel at least some of those high prices are worth it. So let us use this thread to discover, inform, discuss, and display photos of your English-Friendly Japanese releases, right here in this thread.

A great big Thank You! goes out to Tiberius for compiling the inital lists below, all including a link to the Amazon page for each title!

I also added the text on each line after the link, indicating Manufacturer, Year Made, length, and Disc Release Date. I purposely made that text a very light color so the links still stand-out, and so it doesn't make the list appear too cluttered. It still should be perfectly readable.
Will you still add stuff to this if I submit them? Don't want to make a list if the thread is essentially dead.

I haven't maintained this thread for a couple of years, and unfortunately I don't have much time right now to update them, bad timing because I'm in the process of cleaning out my house getting ready for a move this summer, so I have little free time at home in the evenings until the move is complete later in the year.

But, if you or anyone else can send the additions to me via PM or email in the same format as I have each line item in the list, with the proper BB Codes in the line, so I can just basically cut and paste each line into the list, then yes, I will add them - that would be of great help and wouldn't take a lot of time on my part to add them. I think I have my list restricted just to Blu-rays or combo releases, and not DVD-only releases.

Thanks for offering!

I'm at work now, but I can work on it this evening, or potentially add to what professorwho does, if he works up a list first. Some of them don't have a listing on this site, though, so an Amazon JP or CD Japan link might be the best I could do for those.

EDIT: Also, this list has been of fantastic help to me, and it's only recently that I found a different way to look up releases that aren't on it, so thank you very much!

This is basic info, but if you quote one of my posts with the listings, you can copy the BB Code format for a single line from within the editor. Paste the line into notepad, and change the information accordingly, for each new entry.

I think I can recover the BB Code from a PM in the same manner, but if you want to send a lot of them, maybe it would be better to use email instead - just PM me for my email address.

Link is broken, because Japanese text gets clobbered by the forum software.

Is there any way around that?

Edit: Or is it just a browser issue for me?

Blu-ray.com auto-modifies the link. I've "fixed" it by using the code tags.

Watch it not have subs. lol

Also I'm going to keep mine. I went for the Amazon Exclusive so I want it for that. I'll go ahead and lock the boxset in when it goes live. I'm guessing like $300 or more.

I'm gonna go ahead and throw some stuff I put together here as a comment until GWG gets time to update. Mostly because someone asked me for a list, and I already have it formatted for this forum. They are mostly both Sub and Dub, as that's what I worked on first, and I haven't moved on to Sub Only or Dub Only yet.
