Uh....why did I buy this....? o.o

Postby SilversLightning » Mon Jul 02, 2007 1:31 pm

Ever had an anime, show, movie or whatever that you loved so you spend however much money to get it....and then you watch it later and wonder why the hell did you buy this piece of shit in the first place? And why the hell did you blow so much money on it. And wished you could get your money back?

I did....sorta XD

I bought the volumes of Negima! because I thought it was a cute little show and I really wanted to add it to my collection. But recently I rewatched it out of boredom and realized that most of it really didn't develop a story. It was kinda random and I was a little disappointed. I'm not sure whether I was more disappointed with myself or the show, or with the fact that I spend so much money on it. (even though I got most of them on sale....)

Now that I look at it I would probably just buy the first disk just to see what it was but wouldn't go any farther than that :/ now I switch to Negima?! for some odd reason even though at first I didn't like it, but now I like that better.

Well....what are your horror stories?

I occasionally go spend like $50 on some games or crap that I might like, and then never get around to playing.

Oh, also the Wii. I've had it for several months, but haven't played for more than 5 hours. That's mostly because work just leaves me too tired, but still. That's almost a whole paycheck.

Escaflowne: The Movie: The Ultimate Limited Edition box.

3 DVDs of crap, crap, crap.

1 DVD for the movie with minimal extras.
2nd DVD for extras that weren't worth watching.
3rd was a CD of the OST which I had already bought the imported version.

lawlz that makes me glad i only got the regular edition :)

and i didn't really get any money back for the pokemon VHS cause I had to use the money on a trip that I didn't really want to go on... @_@ though 3 months in Louisiana was kinda interesting ... (i was pretty much the grownup supervising my niece for a long train trip)

Bought because my wife wanted it. Both of us watched the first few episodes and jointly decided this series is the type of thing that makes some people irrationally hate anime. We didn't get far into it though, I kinda gave up with the entire 'stabbing myself will make the mirror world release me!' stupidity. I figured if I kept watching next up will be 'slicing my wrist will make that bitch with a dick like me' and 'if I stab a pencil through my eyes and give myself a lobotomy that'll make the audience like me'. Although that last point just might have been accurate.

for once, i agree with you, that fucking sucked. I got it for like 5 bucks at a sale, watched it once, then gave it to a friend. She didnt like it either : /

Also i got the negima dvds on sale, like 15 each, i didn't think they were that bad but they weren't good ...good amv material ...not pretty too watch, stick to the manga, it's wicked cool.

i'm also often question anything that i buy after i watch/use it. Electronics seem to be the only thing i'm ever happy with when i buy something. :?

Spiral...

I loved the manga, but the anime was sooo mehh... Total lack of action...

Oh, and also: Excel Saga

While it always puts a smile on my face, I wonder if it really was worth the money I paid for. Excel's voice actor gives me a huge headache. :?
