Man, you ain't kidding!! It's been a loooong time since I've purchased any anime, but I'm ready to start collecting again. Most of my collection is on laser disc or standard DVD, but none of it was ever terribly expensive, at least not U.S. release versions! Yeah, some of the original japanese laser discs were pricey I guess, but most of my collection I bought used A-grade stuff for next to nothing!

But sheesh! This stuff is crazy...

There is a lot of affordable anime on Blu-ray. You just have to avoid anything from Aniplex, which prices their American releases at parity with the Japanese release. Most sets from Funimation and Sentai are reasonably priced.

Ah, too bad! Aniplex seems to bring quite a bit of stuff over!

I'd expect a season to be in the $30-$50.00 range.

Just wait for a good Sentai/RightStuf flash sale and you're good to go. I have bought a ton of anime from them in the last three months. Over $1K worth and it cost me about $500.

You can find some anime seasons in that price range when they are on sale.
