Steins;Gate! It's my favorite anime and it's one of the best. Currently $30 on amazon. https://www.amazon.com/Steins-Gate-Complete-Classic-Blu-ray/dp/B00KU3Y5CG/
Hmm, it appears to be sold out atm though... Also sold out on rightstuf... And sold out at Best Buy... Wow.
I'll pop in here and say that I love both the dub and sub of S;G. The dub is my go to on most of my rewatches of the series.
You should totally give it a rewatch!
(Somewhat related, not sure if you're into picking up merch, but Steins;Gate's DVD/BD combo pack is pretty fairly priced)
Amazon Link a little less than 30 USD for both formats.
It's super easy to rewatch a series when you've got the disc in your TV or on your computer.
Unsure what your region is specifically, but in the U.S., Steins;Gate never received a DVD only release. You'd have to get either the original Part 1 and Part 2 Blu-ray + DVD Combo Packs (Part 2 is difficult to find at a good price), or get the "Anime Classics" version, which is now out of print, but it's a Blu-ray + DVD Combo Pack for the whole 24 episode series + the OVA. It should be this listing on Amazon, but you might have a hard time finding it new. I'd also recommend eBay since there might be cheaper listings.
Steins;Gate 0 similarly doesn't have a DVD only release. Seeing as it only came out a couple years ago, and there isn't a "Complete Series" release on the horizon just yet, your only options are the Part 1 and Part 2 releases, since those do include DVDs.
I love steins gate but why not buy the FULL SERIES for $25 on bluray with dubs in the classic edition instead - https://www.amazon.com/Steins-Gate-Complete-Classic-Blu-ray/dp/B00KU3Y5CG/ref=sr_1_2?keywords=steins+gate+blu+ray&qid=1549984147&s=movies-tv&sr=1-2
That "LE" has nothing special about it at all sadly
Rats, if you're convinced you'll love it, the Blu Ray/DVD set is pretty cheap. I own it myself and it's definitely worth 30 USD to me.

Anyways, I choose Steins;Gate complete series simply because it's my top series.
Anime to me this year has meant a lot of disappointment more than anything. I was super hyped for both Charlotte and UBW, and both were a pretty big letdown. On the other hand though I definitely did have some pretty big surprises with a hopeful future, in a lot of announcements including Steins;Gate sequel and Rewrite (although I gotta keep my expectations in check)
EDIT: Oh man how could I forget Aldnoah.Zero season 2 in my slew of disappointment? That was right up there as well.
That's just how it is. Believe it or not, Funimation's prices are actually pretty decent. Sentai is similarly priced.
If you really want to shit your pants, go look at Aniplex USA or Ponycan USA releases. Kill La Kill BD Volume 1. Release date: July 15, 2014. Episodes 1-4. <u>ONE THROUGH FUCKING FOUR</u>. $40.00 USD. "Oh that's just the MSRP direct from the walletfuckers, it'll be cheaper from other retailers." Nope and [Amazon link unavailable because Amazon doesn't even carry it].
You paid $30 for Steins;Gate because you bought it when they released the whole thing branded as an anime classic. I know this, because that's when I bought it. That was a rerelease. The original was offered as two split cours that came out a few months apart and each had prices higher than the classic bundle.
This is what Funimation and Sentai do, with few exceptions:
Sentai doesn't really do rereleases, instead they just regularly (but only temporarily) slash the prices of a lot of their old stock. They have a decent sale going on now, but a few months back they had drastically cut down the prices on a lot of their content, with some subtitle-only releases going for $15 per season (on BD!) and dubbed releases for $18.
It is easier to get the series on blu-rays these days. Having said that, or the US, this collection has both the blu-rays and DVD's for the original series. Steins;Gate 0 is sold in two parts- part one and part two.
It’s also on sale on amazon for anime month

I've been putting a lot of my money recently on anime figures that I love. I've realized I have absolutely no physical Blu-Ray collection, which is something I would like to change.
Problem is, the prices seem super incredibly high. I guess that is expected, but still...
What I'm wondering, is if there are any 'must-have' blu-ray box sets that are relatively cheap. I generally like to pick up Limited Edition stuff, but those seem extraordinarily expensive in the anime world. Is there a specific site (Canadian's especially) can pick up or preorder new LE/CEs?
I have my eyes on Steins;Gate from Amazon and Danganronpa that I'll probably pick up so far. =)
Does 360 support youtube? You can watch it all on FUNimation's official youtube channel. They also have the first 4 episodes of the dub on youtube, if you prefer that.
That said, it's not HD, and the recommended subs are not the official ones. WhyNotSubs are usually what this sub recommends, which you'd have to find a way to acquire yourself (I do not believe this sub can publicly condone piracy). That said, if you do download it, I'd recommend purchasing the anime as well. $30 on amazon for 12 hours of anime is not a bad deal by any means, especially for a top anime like Steins;Gate.
You could just buy the dvds, and play those from your xbox, if you'd prefer that.
Well this year in anime has had some surprises and disappointments. This was my first year of watching seasonal anime (winter 2015). The anime that had the most impact on me and made into my top 10 was the 2nd season of JJBA: SDC. My friend got me into it and I was skeptical at first but I ended up loving.
In general this year I became more enriched in anime and I've watched more anime this year than other form of entertainment in my life. I don't what I would be doing without anime if I hadn't discovered it (probably just still playing video games) but I wouldn't have had the influence of anime today. I've been learning Japanese since my 2nd year of high school (because it's offered there) so it has also greatly influenced my intake of anime.
As for what I would want I would like either Steins; Gate Blu-ray, Cowboy Bebop Blu-ray, or basically any quality wall scrolls for the Fate Series or Kara no Kyoukai Series like this, this, or this.
Also thank you for doing this.
I know you can buy the Blu-ray DVD from the Funimation shop.
You can also buy it on Amazon but sadly I know of no sites you can download it from legally. Sorry.
Well there is the classic one : http://www.amazon.com/Steins-Gate-Complete-Classic-Blu-ray/dp/B00KU3Y5CG/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1422561990&sr=8-1&keywords=steins+gate&pebp=1422561993078&peasin=B00KU3Y5CG
The same for the movie : http://www.amazon.com/Animation-Theatrical-English-Subtitles-KAXA-6802/dp/B00DUCND18/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1422561990&sr=8-4&keywords=steins+gate
And the collector collector collector .... ..... collector edition of the series : http://www.amazon.com/Animation-Steins-Blu-Ray-Japan-MFXT-9001/dp/B00ABTVQH6/ref=sr_1_10?ie=UTF8&qid=1422561990&sr=8-10&keywords=steins+gate
1) $30, and it's not just Steins;Gate. Most releases through Sentai, NIS, and Funimation are fairly priced. It's mostly Aniplex releases that can be somewhat pricey.
2) Imports often come without subs, any NA released Blu-Ray is guaranteed to have subs and the subs for the most part are okay (with some exceptions).
3) A lot is an exaggeration. Oppai mousepads and body pillows make up a small portion of OFFICIAL merchandise. There's other stuff available, but maybe you don't like it?
4) Thank you for putting what I said in all-caps to make it seem like I was screaming at you.
I'd rather not continue discussing this as it seems pointless to go back and forth with someone whose problems are seemingly non-existent.
