Truth. If you live in the first world, it comes out to $90 incl. shipping.

I hope I'm able to snag a copy. Don't even care if I get a numbered one. I just want all the books on my shelf and this would look the best.

Not sure how I feel about it being literally a textbook.

tfw i just got into spice and wolf and i'm strongly considering dropping the money for this.
>>
>>147458920

If you plan on having physical copies, it would be foolish not to. MSRP for each of the 17 volumes is $13 bringing it to $221 for bog-standard paperback books while this little guy has all the content in a better quality book, for $150 MSRP.
>>
>>147459101
Physical copies of books are a must have. I hate digital shit you don't really own. Thanks for the advice though never considered it would save me money.
>>
>>147459332

This is also why Yen Press shies away from omnibus books. They probably only did this one because they figured they squeezed most of the potential earnings out of the volume publication already. Also, because Spice and Wolf is easily one of the best and most popular series of it's era so there's a huge demand for something like this versus a less popular show.
>>
Already ordered
Day 1. Hopefully i got in early enough for first print.

You can only get it signed if it's one of the 100 copied purchased AT NYCC. You won't be able to get it signed

I bought this. I was in the process of buying the books but it's cheaper to get this tome.

Honestly, I think the frequency dialogs makes it look like trash in textbook format though.

>13$ per book

RIght stuf sells for $10 a pop without membership and they ship for free.

And of course with the big book coming out there will probably be a spike in people offloading their collection of individual books so expect ebay/craigslist to have a bunch.

Still not sure if I actually got in on the numbered edition or not. The Amazon listing seemed to stay active for a long time.

Just go check your pre-order and it'll say "numbered edition" or not

>even if you do feel like a re-read you'll just use pdfs or epubs on your phone
Why would anyone choose to do thus when they have a book RIGHT THERE?

Since Amazon charges when it ships, I told mysrlf I could jyst cancel the order if I decide against it.
I am not sorry.

>even if you do feel like a re-read you'll just use pdfs or epubs on your phone
Nah, I prefer to read physical copies.

The canadian one says (numbered edition) and it's still open, so I don't know what to think.

Why is amazon canada saying it can't ship to my address? I live in the USA.

Also, what is the probability of it going back in stock on rightstuf?

No, it will be. Amazon is one of YP's preferred partners so will be getting first dibs on all stock they print.

I think it's a negligible problem, but I understand your laziness.
>>
>>147472985
It's not a question money. There's no reservation or holding of stock actually occurring. Amazon will just get the stock. Period. They won't be denied it. They are that important to YP. Also you're an idiot if you think "Numbered Series" means anything. YP can print a million if they wanted. It means shit.

Hey, there was a time people only used blunt rocks as tools. People will get over it in time, don't worry. Eventually everyone forgets that a piece of technology was ever new or controversial in the first place. Someday people will be swapping out body parts and absorbing the suns energy directly through photosynthesis just as casually as we drink coffee in the morning. The world is a huge, slow process of progress that cannot be stopped without destroying it.
>>
>>147468455

Yeah and that is still $170 versus the Canadian preorder of $90. I kept it to msrp for simplicity but i think even at market prices its still a pretty fair deal.

I ordered first day but RightStuf had it for cheaper than Amazon so I switched and canceled my amazon order. Might have fucked up (could have just bought both and resold one).
>>
>>147474122
It's actually the best value compared to buying all 17 volumes. Comes to about $6/vol. incl. shipping.
>>
>>147474148
not only that the print is so small you'd have to hold the book up close to your face to read it. if you compare it to the LN right next to it, it's the exact same size page per page. except they crammed 4 of the original pages on one of the CE pages (8 for two page span). shit does not make for comfy reading
>>
>>147474096

I thought that pouch was Holo's panties for a few seconds.
>>
>>147474148
It's in color, for some reason. It'll hold together better, but I don't like it, either.
>>147474226
Those are not the same size.
>>
>>147474309
go back and look at how much space the paragraphs take on each page of the LN. they're the same. there's less white space on the CE
>>
How long do I have to buy this?

I'm broke as fuck right now and probably won't have the expendable income to get it for a few weeks. Am I fucked?
>>
>>147474465
Yes, and you can clearly see in the picture that the CE is significantly larger than the original.
>>
>>147474467
You won't get charged until it ships so just do it
>>
>>147474528
did you even read the post you originally replied to? i said that each CE page has FOUR of the original pages. so NO SHIT is it bigger.
>>
>>147474531
Dicks, looks like it comes out in 2 weeks. I don't think I'll have the money by then.

How the fuck did I completely miss this.

Will these be available for only a limited time, or that's just for some numbered copy bullshit?
>>
>>147474662
there's two printings. the one coming out early october is numbered and print run limited to 2000. 2nd printing is coming out early november. no numbering. but that will be the final printing.
>>
>>147474662
Only the numbered copies were limited.
You can still pre order the second printing now.
>>
>>147474716
>>147474704
Hmm, I see. Still, it's expensive, hard to read, and I don't like the glossy look. A more "old-like", normal finish to the pages would have been better.

Argh but still. God fuck.
>>
>>147474788
just download the fucking pdfs. it's a $100 novelty that will sit on your book shelf until you run out of space and then toss it out
>>
>>147474826
It is a $100 novelty that will sit on my book shelf and collect dust, yes. I wouldn't toss it out though.

And I'm on book 5, slowly getting them.
>>
>>147474954
i've been a buyfag longer than you've likely been alive. i've tossed out more volumes of manga than most posters here have even read. you will toss it out sooner or later. unless you're a hoarder with mental issues.
>>
>>147474997
I don't buy a lot of books, so I doubt it. But maybe you're right.

Still, this is a novelty that's too expensive and its only worth is that is limited. If I'm really such a fan after I finish the series and want it so bad, I'll just let some guy rip me off and pay like 500 dollars through ebay.
>>
>>147452907
Why, for letting other people read LNs for free?
>>
>>147451016
good luck on your "investment". they're not gonna be worth shit. dead trees isn't in step with the times. and anime "collector items" is a fucking oxymoron since most anime fans are dirt poor. not to mention, anyone who would have wanted this in the first place likely already pre-ordered.
>>
>>147474997
My instinct is to hoard books into a personal library on display like trophies, but the sensible thing is to keep digital copies on a nook/kindle device.
>>
what's that one light novel that had a bunch of spooky looking drawing but replaced with moe anime girls when localized to japan?
>>
>>147475049
he said scalp (as in re-sell on ebay at marked up price), not scan

>>147448998
Well I just got the last copy off amazon.co.uk for the limited run ones.

I love being an autist.
>>
How are you people so dedicated to the series? I finished the anime a few months ago and it was the first time i felt attraction towards a cartoon character as strong i did. It just died after a few months desu.

Im kind of over it. Kind of. Do you people still feel the same as you did when you first watched the series?

That's where you fucked up. Honestly I read the LN's every year and by the time I'm done with those it's about that time the first frost hit and the chill is starting to set in. Then I get to go maximum comfy mode and watch the anime all over again. I've always got the same feeling of joy, comfort, nostalgia, and other shit I can't exactly explain when I'm watching it.

I'm genuinely in love with this wolf.
