  1. I’m enjoying these remastered videos. Upon discovering your writings, it’s made me wonder what the difference is between what you buy from Anime Limited, and a place like Rightstuf? I’ve always gotten things from Rightstuf, so I’m wondering if I need to expand my search areas.

    1. Honestly it comes down to whether you have the money to import (depending on your location), whether you prefer a simple release or a nicer packaged product, or which title you feel you wish to get sooner. With the Gundam franchise, Nozomi & Rightstuf have released a majority already, but Anime Limited takes a fair bit longer as they go through more approvals in order to provide a box and physical contents like booklet and art cards.

      That being said, I do like Anime Limited as they offer something that UK distributors don’t generally risk or provide nowadays, but Rightstuf is a great place for ordering a variety of anime and books, though international shipping ruins it for us UK anime fans (which is why I use United Publications USA as my go-to for US anime imports). Nowadays I just stick to Anime Limited, MVM’s Anime-on-Line, Amazon, and United Publications for my anime hauls (and use Rightstuf as a last resort if something happens to a specific title).

      1. Thank you so much! I usually hold off (somehow…) and wait for the Black Friday deals and utilize Rightstuf. Being in the US (west coast), I can see why your preference is Anime Limited.

        With Gundam I’ve been buying the giant sets that I’ve seen with Rightstuf. I always wonder ‘did I get the right set, or the best set’ when I see other boxed sets like those you are doing these videos for, so I had to ask and I am very grateful you always take the time to respond.

        I’m always looking for new places that are customer-oriented, fair in their pricings, and have a good selection. I was doing Funimation, Sentai Filmworks, and Rightstuf all in combination – looking up the same titles between the 3 and seeing which had the best pricing for the same products. Funimation I’ve given up on with anime due to limited titles, and they focus more on merchandise and streaming and seems to have really dropped the ball for media offerings. I like Rightstuf and Sentai, and now I’ll be looking into these others when I do my next purchase run!!!

      2. If you want to try out a distributor that puts a lot of fantastic effort into their disc releases, I highly recommend looking into Discotek Media. Sure they don’t provide special editions, but they are in my opinion the best distributor for anime in terms of disc content.

        I like Funimation, Sentai, Aniplex and Nozomi for what they do, but those distributors generally cut corners for various reasons while Discotek takes the time to see what is available and whether they can achieve it. One notable example was Street Fighter II the Movie where they somehow managed to get every single version possible in audio and video (UK only got one of the versions). They recently put a lot of effort in going through Galaxy Express 999 after the infamous DVD release by S’more Entertainment, and are even slowly started working on offering English dubs for titles like Kemono Friends and Lupin the Third.
