Those are Starburst flavors. But they have green apple and grape for some reason. My favorite is probably red or pink.

Sad to say it but I have found that there are very few anime even worth archiving to PC, much less purchasing a hard copy.

I watch a regular amount of shows and knock a few off of my backlog only to delete most of them and never watch or think about them ever again. Very few leave an impression in my mind that they are worthy of purchase: Cowboy Bebop, Bake Neko, Book of Bantorra, Ghost in the Shell, etc.

I always found it a bit "pointless" to collect merchandise like that, when it's just physical copies of digital media you can download online.

Why not get stuff like figurines or gunpla or keychains or other related merchandise like that, stuff you can't download?

was never too crazy about US anime releases, but I'd be open to purchasing physical copies of manga if they're any good.

Vastly vary from country, publisher, edition, particular serie getting a competent staff working on it and so on.

>>124529854
>How do localized manga compare to scans?

Let's not start this shit again.

Importing is fine (it's actually the best way to collect manga ideally) but if you don't know moon - which is the overwhelming majority of people here and pretty much everywhere except /jp/ - you might aswell buy toilet paper as you're reading on scans anyway. Although the "support directy the author" point still stands, but to each their own.

Localized has its perks too (namely: actually reading it) but is undeniably less supportive of the industry and keen to more problems as the serie is passing under another "round" of work, from editing and translation to physical edition and eventual publishing issues like delays or interruptions. Also vastly depends where you live, Italy and France are a completely different thing from US for example.
>>
>>124530016
No, you're on /a/. That means one of two things. Either you're dividing your attention, in which case, fuck you, or you're not actually watching it, in which case fuck you too.

>>
>>124530626
depends. are you getting into anime now/have you watched a small amount or only shounen so far?

if yes then they're all good, some even great.

if not then you'll like them but you'll probably not understand why people think they are so good.

I have the same caste in sky as OP. The subs are shit. Shiiiiit. Some US distributors aren't so bad but sometimesthe English subs done by nips in the Japanese release is better that the subs in the US release.
>>
>>124530344
I like your rationality.

To add, you just have to do your research before you buy it. It's all hit or miss with localization. I've seen publishers butcher original jap style and I've seen other publishers do things beautifully. For example the former DelRey even kept the original sound effects intact with only a small, discrete english trans on the side.

Always do research before buying because the publisher, editor, and translator can all create varying results.
