Is this worth anything outside of Japan?

OK, I got the Powers that Be to create additional blank posts to the beginning of this thread for list expansion - They had to clear the exisiting user's posts and reassign them to the OP to do that, though. Because of this, we lost two posts by Tiberius and one by NoSurprises - Sorry about that, Guys! You are certainly welcome to repost what you lost.

Like I posted before the post transformed into "reserved" for future use slot, the following thread (really its attached spreadsheet) over on Fandom Post is a good place to start for seeing what's available from Japan with English sub and/or dub: http://www.fandompost.com/oldforums/...-and-or-EngDub

And I still think this thread here should be stickied

List looks great so far! Thanks for this, I really appreciate the effort you and Tiberius have put into it!

Is it worth us chucking stuff at you that isn't on the list yet?

(i.e. I couldn't spot Little Witch Academia, Persona 3 #1 Spring of Birth and Persona 3 #1 Spring of Birth (LE) under the Sub Only section.)

Yep - that's what the thread is for! I think Tiberius has a few additions as well, I'll get the list updated tonight when I get back on my computer.

EDIT - Added!

Also, to make the list a little more useful to reference without having to open up all the links, I'm currently updating each line with the info brought over from the Amazon page for Manufacturer, Year Made, Runtime, and Disc Release Date.

NOTE: I purposely made that text a very light color so it doesn't make the list appear too cluttered.

Thanks!

Thought I'd add that 5 Centimeters Per Second / Voices of a Distant Star does have an English dub, so might want moving categories? (Though I suppose the VoaDS/She and Her Cat films that it comes with don't, which might be why you stuck it there, I dunno!).

Also, just to be a real pain, is it possible to add a note if the Blu-ray is NOT region free? I'm assuming most (if not all) of them on this list are region free, and those mad enough to import probably have a region free player anyway. But it might be nice to know...

Ok, I would probably put it in whatever category the main title is formatted with, so yeah, I could move that one.

As far as noting the non-Region-free titles in the list, I think those are so hard to actually verify, other than what Amazon's page for each title says, that I would wish to leave that off the main list. You can just get that info directly from each Amazon link.

Ask and you shall receive! I even picked the girliest import anime I have to go along with the pink sheets - all specifically for you, zrdb!



I had to use my daughter's inexpensive camera for this one, so the photo is a little washed out contrast-wise... I accidentally left my camera in my car, which is at the shop right now getting repairs done... doh!

Also - This thread has now been stickied. Yay! There you go, Tiberius!

I just received two JP import box sets today in the mail, and both are very nice sets, I'm quite pleased with them:




The Jin-roh JP Box set is a BD/DVD combo set, which comes in a DVD-height chipboard box stored inside the standard re-sealable poly bag found on most Japanese releases. The copy I ordered was used, and supposed to be in "very good" condition, but when I opened it, I discovered both the Blu-ray and DVD cases were unopened and still shrink-wrapped in plastic, so for now I did not open them for further photos. A thin art booklet also comes inside the box. The chipboard box is immaculate, in basically mint condition. This may as well have been a brand new copy, as nice as it is - for about half the going rate new!








I already own the US version of Children Who Chase Lost Voices from Deep Below, but the JP release was so much nicer that I wanted to add it to my import collection. This set includes two Blu-ray discs, a double-sided manga with a different story on each side, a nice art book, a smaller booklet with details about the movie itself, and a filmstrip. Of course, all the written material is in Japanese... All of this come packaged in a Blu-ray height cardboard slip box:

I picked up the standard JP release of the Steins;Gate movie in the slip box, just a few months ago, for $46 - but, I haven't finished watching the series yet, so I can't watch the movie...

Amazon JP - that was their price when I got it... don't know what it costs now... And remember that you deduct 8% from the listed Amazon price for the JP domestic tax if you don't live in Japan...

Americans don't pay customs. That's why his price was cheaper.

The LE is much nicer too.
