涼宮ハルヒの憂鬱, Suzumiya Haruhi no Yūutsu

I have never though that I would watch an anime about school girls because my taste usually range from stuff with mechs and loads of action. Seeing so many people interested in the anime Suzumiya Haruhi no Yūutsu and it’s line of figure got me curious and after some recommendation from friends I decided to give it a try.

I guess lot of people didn’t continue watching the series after the first episode, since it’s not the best benchmark to judge the rest of the series but it really got me hook. The first episode was so funny that I decided to continue watching the rest. Though watching it in anachronically can be a bit confusing at times but somehow the story does makes sense. After finish watching the anime, I officially join the rest of the Haruhiists out there and start buying anything that have to do with Haruhi ^^, well not that bad actually since I just bought the figures ^^.

Now kinda strange that I would write about anime right, since I have never done that on my blog, well read on to know why

Haruhi: Hmmmm… what’s that over there, looks interesting, let’s check it out Mikuru, Yuki.
Mikuru: Are you sure Haruhi? It looks dangerous….
Yuki: …
Haruhi: Come on Mikuru!

Haruhi: Hmmm it’s so colorful, I wonder what’s inside, maybe it’s alien or esper or time traveler.

Mikuru standing there looking at the thing and shaking while Yuki just stands there. Haruhi is just too excited at finding that strange thing.

There, this is what this post is about, Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya DVD 1 (Hyb) Special Limited Edition and also the first original anime dvd that I bought. I bought this about 2 weeks ago from Rightstuf when it was on sale for half of the retail price. Including shipping it cost me USD53.99 which I feel is quite a decent price, considering it comes with a nice box that you can use to store the rest of the dvds and cds, and also the other extra stuff.

I have never buy any anime dvd until now as original anime dvd are not available locally, all we get is bootleg from Taiwan and Hong Kong which are usually badly subbed. I have never thought of buying online either until aka_ugly introduce me to the site Rightstuf. Their normal price item is expensive for me but for those items on sales the price is just nice, and the shipping fees is not too expensive either and takes about 2 weeks to arrive which is pretty good for me.

I have already ordered Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya DVD 2 (Hyb) Special Limited Edition, but from Amazon instead since it was cheaper and also they have Evangelion Platinum version that I wanted. Both should arrive next week since I use priority shipping, more expensive but since both dvd cost me quite a lot, I want to get it ASAP ^^.
