Some Shopping Did Occur – I Went To Ikea Too (About Buying Anime)

I live in the land of a thousand Ikea. Once I even worked at (in? for?) Ikea, but that’s a whole other story and too painful to talk about. Anyway, I was there for the (not soul)purpose of buying a new book shelf because I have run out of space for my manga and now I have suddenly started to buy anime as well. And there is the reason for this post. I have started to buy anime. Yup, I never really thought the day would come when I actually would buy anime on disc. I stopped buying movies and tv-series on dvd and bluray a long time ago and here I am, browsing every domestic web shop for interesting anime.

That 80s anime I felt the urge to own. You know, the pretty cowboy in space and the half naked lady. Space Adventure Cobra. Well, that one started it all. I blame it all on the 80s. So, now I have 5 anime coming this way. I am still a bit confused about this and unsure about how it happened but hey, 5 anime for 50 euros. It has got to be good. At least I hope it is. I don’t know, I just click and buy.

Oh, you want to know what I bought? Well…

  1. Ooooooohhhhhhhhh๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ I see Akira….(sorry I always get very excited when I see images of that film) I would definitely blame it on the 80’s. Lol ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ By the way 50 euros fo 5 anime…sounds like my kind of deal ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š
    I see a certain someone has been busy with comments….Hmmm…gee ….I wonder who that could be ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”

    1. Akira was a bargain. On bluray for 8 euro. It’s hard not to buy then. ๐Ÿ˜Ž The others was “only” dvd’s but i figure it’s okay to watch.

      And well, I need to answer rights. It’s impolite not to and I am a very polite girl. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

      1. That really is a bargain. I had rewatched the movie last year and it’s amazing how incredible that film still is after all these years. Truly a timeless classic that I rewatch from time to time ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š
        Haha lol, well I am a very polite guy, so I always answer too ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š I don’t think I could find it in me to not answer…unless I’m busy crawling under a rock or working on my ” terminating snails training” ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

        ………Actually had to think up a response to this…but nope…at a loss for words right now…speechless….
        Just kidding! You can crawl out from under/behind that sofa. I have not seen so many anime that it’s laughable. Full Metal Alchemist, Naruto….the list goes on and on…so really you are safe ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š

      3. Is Naruto really something on has to have seen? I started to watch it but that ADHD kid got on my nerves immediately. He was just annoying. I haven’t seen FMA but I realise I should. I am not that interested at the moment though so, another day/week/month perhaps. I will watch Akira as soon as the bluray gets here though. I am gonna watch all five. Then I am gonna buy more on my list and watch them. i realise that it is so much easier to watch something you have bought than something you can stream. If you have bought it it sits there on the shelf and glares at you, telling you that you have paid a lot of money. And if you have paid money for it surely you want to watch it that bad. Otherwise why would you buy it. So yeah… More physical anime to the people! ๐Ÿค—

      4. Hmmm…well…a lot of people seem to think it’s pretty essential watching…but…I am not one of them either. For one thing : it is now over 500 episodes long. I really would not know where to find the time for that. Secondly…there is that ADHD kid (although when compared to Asta he is a Zen master). But…I am looking forward to FMA. That one really has a cool look to it.
        I really can’t wait for you to to see AKIRA. Really one of my favorite anime movies of all time (and no worries if you end up not liking it, I won’t think any less of you lol ๐Ÿ˜Š).
        Hmm…that is a good point…although I still have tons of anime on dvd as well that I haven’t watched yet.
        Oohhhh…speaking of: I found something interesting on out search for 80’s anime collab post thingy (really will need to find a shorter name for that). https://letterboxd.com/animechief1982/list/anime-80s-90s-non-mecha-mystery-sci-fi-and/
        There should be something in here which we could use right? ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š

      5. I love how it says non-mecha. I’m gonna take it that this person has a mecha version of the same list as well. (well not the exact same list but you get it) And yes, there could most likely be something in there. I’m gonna take a look when I have answered all these three million comments I have gotten. ๐Ÿ˜‰

        That’s just it; when a series have that many episodes it’s kind of a turn off for me. I startedt Bleach and it has 360 episodes I think. The difference between those two is that Bleach is at least finished. Naruto never seems to end since there is Boruto and Naruto Shippuden and OVAs and movies and god knows. I can’t even oversee it. So yeah… nope. As for Asta, at least he doesn’t own his own franchise. ๐Ÿ™„ One Piece is also one anime I would like to watch but that will never happen because how many episodes does it have now? Like 900 or something. And it’s ongoing. No way I will start something like that. There is no end to it.

      6. Someone left three million comments? ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Wow..that is just crazy…oh wait…scrolling up my comments list…someone did here as well. Lina? Have you heard of her? ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
        Yeah…that’s what I noticed too. I know quite a few Mecha series from the 80’s so I figured this list was much more helpful ๐Ÿ˜Š But cool, I will be patient and see/hear what you will come up with ๐Ÿ˜€
        Yeah…I completely agree. As much as I would want to…I can’t watch shows like that. I really would not know where I could find time for it. Unless I’m stuck in bed for 2 years or something like that.
        If they let Asta have his own franchise…I’m seriously going to orchestrate a protest march. That so must not be allowed to happen ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

      7. I came up with Devilman and then I went and watched it on my own. ๐Ÿ˜‚ Seriously though, that was a bit entertaining. The ending of the manga wasn’t in it. It felt like the last piece was missing but I read the plot on wikipedia so I know the end anyway. Don’t feel like watching the crybaby now either. The 80s is so enough. Anyway, I better find something else on there. I know there is something. You just wait.

        I’m gonna marsh for an Asta franchise. That’s gonna be my goal for the next month. Asta’s own franchise. Let’s meet in a mud wrestling match and decide which side wins. ๐Ÿ˜‡

      8. Haha..okay. Hmm well I am still in the middle of Guyver…and I am still enjoying that. It’s stupid fun, not really high quality..but it doesn’t always have to be.
        Maybe I should just go ahead and watch the 80’s Devilman..have never seen that before.
        No worries: I know you will find something, really no need to rush at all ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€
        Lol….a mud wrestling match over Asta getting his own franchise…Hmm….you know ofcourse that I will win that fight right? ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜Ž

      9. I don’t know about that, I am mean in the mud. Mud is my forte. When I was like ten or something I walked out on a huge, muddy field. The mud was like quicksand. Let’s just say I got stuck… That’s how mean I am in mud. *whispers* so yeah, you’ll probably win

        If nothing else, you should watch it for the demons. They are totally awesome.

      11. But they aren’t 80s demons. You need that kind of demons as well. ๐Ÿ˜

        So, we would get sucked down in that mud hole and eventually drown. Can one drown in mud? ๐Ÿค” Choke might be more likely.๐Ÿคข

      12. Okay, okay…I guess my headspace is still pretty empty, so I can add an 80’s demon in there as well. No real problem I guess ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
        Naw….I’m too light of weight to really get sucked into that mud, so I will probably stay afloat. And otherwise I would net let you drown. You could just step on me, and climb out that way. That would mean that I would probably drown because of that..but I guess I would sacrifice myself in that way ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

        Arm wrestle sounds good….you are pretty confident about securing that win…you believe in fairytales too huh? No way you are going to win…let’s hear it for: *how to destroy Asta** ๐Ÿ˜ˆ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

      1. Haha, well, that is a difference I must say. But that’s a whole season, right? All the full seasons of whatever anime costs about the same here. I just got lucky with my choices. ๐Ÿ˜Š One day I’ll probably spend the same amount on something I like too. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    1. It’s crazy expensive here too since more or less everything is imported. I was just lucky these were so cheap. Also, it’s all on DVD, except Akira who was on Bluray (but that was super cheap, only 8 euros so that was a real catch.) I just got lucky.

      One day you will be able to afford all the manga and anime you want. I am sure of it. And then you have to go and shop for a new book shelf as well. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. I’ve been pondering a little bit about how big a difference it makes to buy blurays compared to dvds when it comes to older anime (and movies/tv-series/cartoons). They aren’t done in HD from the beginning and the studio rarely remake them and scale them up as I understand it. So is there other benefits in buying them in Bluray?

      1. Blu-rays are worth buying depending on the television you have, watching a Blu-ray in a 4K television gives you six times the resolution , and the voices, music Sound much crisper. And some studios include additional content

      2. We do have a 4K TV but I am thinking that old anime isn’t made in 4K or even in 1080p so does it matter then? Doesn’t the source material have to be made in that high def for it to matter if it is a bluray or a dvd? I mean, if the movie I watch isn’t made in 4K then I have no use of the 4K.
