Afro Samurai

Is it still possible to find this for sale anywhere at a reasonable price?

In all honesty I dont think so unless you stumble upon one on Ebay and get it for a good price. Its a pretty rare disc and the few I have seen have gone up in price since the fall of the format.

That's true, this disc is still available in a couple of online stores at MRSP prices (including also Amazon Japan) but I'm not aware of any cheaper sources. Some other stores no longer have it available (e.g. HMV Japan and Xploited Cinema). It was probably pressed in pretty limited volumes on HD DVD. This has never been well available in 2nd hand sources in Japan either.

I almost had my hands on a copy like 6 months ago through a group buy but the order never went through so I had to settle with the BR version Ill be ordering the 2nd season soon.

I got mine on release day from Amazon JP, at that time it was at least discounted a bit from the MRSP Already then it went out of stock pretty fast but they got some additional volumes afterwards.

Thanks for the help and input. I knew it might be more but the $50-$60 range is too much. Thanks again.

I finally bit the bullet and ordered Afro Samurai on from Amazon Japan. I've tried Ebay, the HD DVD forum marketplace here, but couldn't find a copy anywhere. I consider this title too be pretty rare, so I broke down and shelled out the bucks for it. I could've gone into Best Buy and bought the for dirt cheap compared to the Japanese , but where's the fun in that? lol

P.S.- I bought the last copy Amazon Japan had.
