I've never heard of the service, but good God, I must admit you're a tad of a fanatic.  ;D

I only own all El-Hazard series, Hand Maid May, and the BTTF Trilogy.

It's a free service, too. Those are just my DVDs though. Doesn't include all my VHS anime. And yeah, I'm sprung big time. ^_^;

How much VHS anime do I have? A couple shelves worth, plus a couple big boxes in the closet. ^^; Maybe 50% of it though are fansubs, rentals I've copied and things people have copied for me in trade.

uh wow,
how'd you cover all those???
Even my intern as environmental engineer doesn't cover the expense
It must be either anime is an integral part of life or your some big shot IT specialist ;)

My dvd's only cowboy bebop, so fine I need to have it.
I wanted to buy all kenshin OVA's but, oh well...priorities...priorities..

I just registered mine.

http://www.dvdaficionado.com/dvds.html?cat=1&id=mrwhat

I have no VHS anime-- the DVD player was my gateway drug to anime-- but I do have several CDRs of Kodomo No Omocha digisubs.

This, plus a handful of eBay auctions, has taken my entire entertainment budget for about two years.  I don't have cable TV, and I hardly ever go see movies at the theaters.

slightly off topic, but hey..are you MrWhat in fanfiction.net by any chance???
Well if yes, just a note from a "fan" that your  "Sad Girl(s?) In Snow" is stilll the best Ifurita containing EH fiction out there IMHO

and um, since you got vol 3 & 4 Wanderers DVD, I was thinking of getting them for a while, are they that good in terms of features, cover picture, vid quality??

Yes, that's me.  Thanks for the kind words.

Well, as far as cover art and video quality, they're about the same as the first two DVDs, I guess.  My television is older than I am, so I may not be the best person to ask about that.

But yes, you should see the entire series if you can.  "The Wanderers" as a whole is better than the second OVA, much better than the Alt World, and a few bits of it are as good as, or (heresy!) even better than, the first OVA.  And "The Wanderers" makes a great DVD marathon, if you are ever able to take about twelve hours to watch it all at once.

A couple more thoughts--  the last few episodes of "The Wanderers" are more serious than the rest of the series.  I think the Wanderers' Eye of God is more scary than the OVA Eye of God.  And the very ending is open to interpretation.  I think it was a happy ending, but some people think differently.

Wrong account.  :P

I'd watch saying such things around Neil in particular.  ;)  Wanderers unfortunately has some better execution, at least in humor respects.  Granted the downward trend of OAV2 and AW make me sad.  Mostly because I happen to like generally more serious, sci-fi oriented stories.  Wanderers tended to lend more out to "fantasy".  Most obviously in the priestesses' lamps and general definitions.  Almost anything in the OAV and related series could quite easily be attributed to something scientific, even the more imaginative deals.  What can I say, I've got scientist blood.  :P

But essentially that's what gives me the hope that once I get through a few more preliminary projects I create something based on post-AW that is ... y'know, actually liked at least by majority.  :-/

Well, it definately was somewhat spontaneously serious.  Some series like Trigun are able to handle that formula, where all the silliness suddenly comes together rather brilliantly.  

Wanderers worked okay, although I wouldn't say quite in the magnitude of Trigun.  The ending is happy enough... two things I liked about the ending area of Wanderers were that shot of Jinnai when an actual warmness came from him (looking over Ifurita in his arms), and the interesting way they show how Makoto had this overall effect on everyone, and his temporary loss had an impact globally.  That was pretty awesome.
