Great series, but completely overpriced.
on October 22, 2008
This is from a hardcore Naruto fan that owns 9/10 of the Box sets and I currently maintain a Naruto fansite (Naruto411, google it) where I usually recommend my visitors to your website because you all usually have the best price on the market.
This time, you obviously don't.
First of all, as Josey here mentioned the total cost if you actually bought them separately is over $100 cheaper from the bundle price. Why is that? Is this the standard or special edition? If it's the special edition, then the $450 price tag make sense, but it doesn't say anywhere on here that it's the special edition, so we all have to assume you all are selling the standard editions of Vol 1-10 bundled for $112 extra. That is terrible.
Let me tell you all something. Vol 1-4 are easy to find but are extremely expensive at most retail stores. Luckily, I got to my local Wal-Mart (back when Vol 5 came out) and got Vol 1-5 for $25 each. Later on, I got Vol 6 for $30 at that same Wal-Mart, then Vol 7 on here for $21, then Vol 8 on here for $20, then Vol 9 for $35 at Wal-mart.
So I got the first nine box sets for $245. I went to Wal-Mart today and saw that Box 10 was going for $30 there, but it was sold out. And you all have it for $35, which honestly, isn't to shabby. All in all, let's say I did get the box set at Wal-Mart. My total for all ten box sets would of been $275. If you add on Maryland's .6 Sales tax (for Vol 1-6, 9, and 10*) would make my total to $287.90.
(*Again, I do not own Vol 10, I was just using it as a example)
I saved $162.09 for not buying all the box sets from Amazon, and you can too if you don't buy this, and buy them either separately from here, or from other stores. All of these box sets are Part I of Naruto (Part II being Naruto Shippuuden). Box set 11 and beyond are filler. I recommend buying these box sets because Naruto is a awesome anime series, but its sad that every retail store on the market can never price them properly.
Don't waste your money on this bundle. It's not a bundle, its a rip off! Amazon FIX THIS PRICE or else we will be going elsewhere!
