[quote user="Sidicas"]The more successful a series it, the more it seems to go down in price..
[/quote]I was not aware of that being the case. I thought most anime in Japan is limited edition, and simply isn't sold after the first few weeks. Then they have a few limited re-releases often of no more than a hundred copies at a later point in time. At least that's what I've picked up from posters at ANN.

YAAA~~ In college, of all the Japanese exchange students that I met.. Not one of them watched pokemon.. They typically watched either horror movies, drama or adult movies .... I was disappointed.. [:(]
Your average Japanese person really doesn't know a whole lot about Anime other than a handful of the most famous ones..
The Anime industry is in bad shape.. I think they've got a lot of hope on the foreign markets for Anime...
Really?!?! Pokemon is the only one that I know about. How funny! I don't think I have seen them all but I saw a while ago Bye Bye, Pikachu or something like that. [:D] A loooooooooong time ago though... He was so cute. [:D]
But from what I've heard they've almost given up on Europe entirely.
The more successful a series it, the more it seems to go down in price.. I think the high price tag on those more obscure anime is to milk the Otaku crowd where they know they'll sell some copies. Otaku are filthy rich in Japan, many of them work full time jobs and have no girlfriends to take out...
All the Animes that I've ever seen that were really successful in the USA ended up being dirt cheap in no time.. . Case in point..

You'd have to buy an entire new wardrobe every single season. I would have failed several late year tests if I'd tossed all my > 3 month old notes.
