    Online buying and site legitimacy.

    I was wondering what sites you go on to buy anime, and wether or not the following site is legitimate or not:

    Discount Anime DVD.com -Japanese Anime DVD Manga Graphic Novel CD with deep discount price!!

    I was wondering how I can be sure that the above site will not rip me off.

    Thanks!

    maybe the copy right at the bottom could be off becuase they didnt copy right it for 2006 so it could be a scam but thats just my opinon i would be weary of it if the copy right isnt up to dated

    I've purchased lots of anime through Discount Anime DVD, and have not had any real problems. I did return one item because it was different from the description, but even then they gave me a full refund, including shipping. It's a good source for imports and hard-to-find stuff, especially anime OSTs. My suggestion when checking out new sites to buy from is to use one of those Visa gift cards (issued in your name) with a small preset amount and just buy one thing to start off. That way, you won't lose much if it does turn out to be a scam.

    Other than DAD, I use Amazon or ADVfilms.com when they have a sale.

    Just because a copyright at the bottom of a page is not updated, does not mean that the site is legitimate. My banks web banking site didn't update its copyright till about July this year.

    if thats how you base the legitimacy of websites, then you're in for a real shocker when someone steals your money/identity/credit information.

    NEwho, thanx for the great website.

    One I would also recomend is J-box, while they may sell Adult material (Just like DAD does), its got a Huge assortment of other Asian items.

    Welcome to JBOX.com

    my favorite being this item: Japanese Hat - "Otaku" (Oakley Parody)

    I've bought from them before, and while their shipping is a bit slow (then again, I do live in Canada, and they're based in San Diego), I got my Ai Yori Aoshi PC game in timely manner.

    Looking at their product list, it does appear to be legitimate licensed products. (But due be aware that DVD 'Imports' are Region 2 encoded and will require a special 'Multi Region/Region Free' DVD player, or a import DVD player to view.)

    For Domestic releases, I usually use Overstock.com. The selections sometimes leaves a lot to be desired, and their display of Anime features is so disorganized you have to know what your looking for first, and use their search function, but they usually have the best discount prices of any legitimate website I've seen...
