Then you clearly didn't like those shows as much as you thought. If you love the show, you should be willing to put up the money for it. But if you look at the series and thing the company is insane to put that price tag on the set...then you clearly weren't the fan you thought you were.
Pardon me for jumping in, but that's not necessarily true.
As much as we love anime, real life comes first. And if there's something we want that's more expensive than it should be, we can't just instant preorder without the knowledge of what else we might need that money for. Far be it for me to say how people spend their money, but I'm certain that most of us here have other financial priorities.
