Ratings & Reviews
Got Anime? Review
by Tazz -
I LOVE this since I order in bulk a lot (well try to...). I say everyone should get this if you order in bulk like I do.
Regret not buying it sooner
by Jezalez -
Definitely worth it if you buy a lot you will save more than what you spend on the membership
I won't be renewing this.
by Rae -
I stopped reviewing the coupons after a couple months, the coupons themselves were only worth $3 and had use towards the orders I made and the member price isn't worth much because there are other sites that have the same products just a couple dollars more but have a better customer service and shipping rate.
Amazing deal, especially for big buyers!
by Rohan -
Well, the price did go up a bit. I bought in July, so it's still active for a while, but it was $12 at the time. I will say that even at $18 this will STILL have saved me a good amount of money and I will definitely be further utilizing savings with this membership before it expires.
Just so you have some idea, I can tell you bigger purchases like box sets often come discounted around $6-$8, some manga are discounted around $1-$3 and a typical bluray or DVD might be discounted around $3-$6. It varies, but that's a solid average looking at my past purchases. Not ALL items are additionally discounted, but many popular items are, especially more expensive ones. I'd say if you only buy 1-2 small items a month, it's a gamble if you'll save money at the $18 price. Any more than that and this is a no-brainer. Just get it, it will DEFINITELY save you money in the long run!
It practically pays for itself!
by Courtney -
Love it! I've been a member for a few years now and after 2 or 3 orders the discounts I get basically pays for my membership!
by lnmnm -
I have been a Got Anime member for some time now, so imagine my surprise when the membership fee went from a fantastic $12 per year to a whopping $18!
Not only that, it used to be a 10% discount on most items, however now the wording is "UP TO 10%" and has included many items listed as Not Eligible For Promotional Discounts.
Also, I fully agree with other commenters that the coupons are practically useless because of all of the restrictions on them. As I write this review I am about to place a $300 order, but cannot use the measly $5 off $70 coupon because of this restriction.
The free shipping on $74 is nice, however if you have one item in your order that is not in stock or a preorder, your ENTIRE order gets held up until that one item is available.
Will I be renewing my membership when it expires? No
Used to be much better
by Laura -
A couple years ago, this used to be totally worth it. I mean, like many have said already, the coupons were always worthless because you can't combine them with anything. But the 10% discount and the $12 price were a good deal when combined with a sale. Back in the day you would save 43% off the original price so it was really worth it.
But now you'll only get maybe $0.75 off a $9.99 item during a sale. I haven't found a single manga where the member discount actually gives you 10% off the original price. Ultimately, you won't really save more than 33% on virtually anything with or without the membership. Might as well just buy it on Amazon or InStockTrades; the membership was what gave Right Stuf the edge over other retailers but now...
I won't renew it again, much less for $18; before, I could buy $120 worth of stuff to start saving, now I'd have to buy $240 before the membership pays itself and the discount is abysmal compared to the competition. What a letdown.
Was Great!, but now its Useless!
by Bluray Buyer -
Was a G/A subscriber! Was buying bulk blurays around $1000 bi-month, monthly till I got caught up to the preorders. Ended G/A when I got caught up because it wasnt saving anything like so many others say. lately I place a order every 3-4 months around 200- $500. Thought I would see if anything has changed that made it worth it, again.
Price increased -$12 to $18!
shipping changed -1 item holds up whole orders now!
Change 10% off to UP TO 10% off
Increasing # of items NOT ELIGIBLE for discounts Or G/A.
Return policy stayed the same
Coupon codes still Useless
Bottom line - At r$200 of eligible G/A for a year it pays for the membership, but if your not buying $1000 of eligible G/A discount for the year, its pointless to get. So its still not worth it for me and probably never will be again since im caught probably!
by CARLOS -
Wow. The membership when from $12 to $18. I only get buy items twice or three times per year. I don't really save a lot anymore. Customer since 2008. I think I'll stop my business here. Other websites offer almost the same deals without paying for membership.
Second Year as Got Anime? member!
by Ivan -
To the people who are doubting on getting or not this membership read the following benefits.
1. You get an additional 10% from all eligible items
2. You get priority order processing
3. You save tons of money when buying a lot (I save around 50$ in my last purchase)
4. The monthly coupons you get help saving even more!.
Get it! You will see that it's worth it!!!
by Tanner -
Alright guys, here is an honest review for this membership... This membership has some great features AND some pretty heavy cons. Lets start with the major con that I see as a huge disappointment. Look, RightStuf, we want faster shipping. Cut and dry. If its too expensive on your end, then make 2 different packages and make 1 more expensive. I'll happily pay 30$ a year to get 2 day shipping (I feel as if I'm not alone either). Now on to the real reason you buy this. The discount. use it right and it'll be your best friend. I buy mostly collectors blu rays, therefore I save a lot of money, If you buy manga once a year, don't buy this, its worthless. Use your simple math skills, its a 10% discount. Of course you're going to save only .77 cents on 1 manga. Duh. Overall, I would recommend if you're buying bigger more expensive stuff.

So ist worth it or not? That depends on yours Purchase habits, if you are the person that buy a lot then get the membership and If you are the person that only buy a couple a year it's not worth buying the membership.
Join The Club
by TIM -
I enjoy the Got Anime? membership for a reason: discount. It is worth saving money, when you join in.
For Me, the GA Membership is a No-Brainer!
by Mark -
I just renewed my Got Anime membership for the umpteenth time (member since 2009). I was a little disappointed that the cost had jumped from $12 to $18, but for me, it will pay for itself fairly quickly. If you make a couple of purchases during studio/publisher sales, that's where you'll get the savings. The regular weekly sales are generally exempt from the GA discount, as are the bargain bin items. Ditto for most of the items during the annual mega-Christmas sales. I'll make my $18 back within the first couple of sales. If you plan around those, it's certainly worth it (the 60-day return window is also a nice bonus).
Price hike kills the deal
by Eric -
It's time to renew and imagine by surprise when I found out the jump in membership price from $12 to $18. It's no longer worth it.
Right stuff gift card contest
by David Callihan
Well I like right stuff anime . Because I can get my anime .that can't find at the mall . Thank you
Price change - turn off
For this kind of membership, i do not mind spending 10$ for but nearly doubled the price... bit of a turn off. It's only 20$(18) per year... Sure is but just not worth it (imo). In the description seems the membership has changed and less benefits for the members, sure i want too support Rightstuf but just too much of a change for me.
It's Still Worth It
by Devin -
This membership is still absolutely worth it even though it is now $18 instead of $12. All that means is instead of getting $120 worth of anime/manga a year you need to get $180 of anime/manga a year to make it worth your money. Which let's be honest, if you get anime or manga frequently you'll easily reach that mark. Yes, there are a couple exclusions to the 10% off, but on the average anime/manga you will still get it.
This membership still pays for itself
Disappointments as the new year had begun
by jhanig -
There were some good deals over winter. The huge negative is the constant email spam (Two to three a day), useless 5% bday code, and not receiving coupon last three months. This made the membership VERY pointless. I thought the bday code would have more meaning but and about taking away the monthly coupon code without warning was not fair - Not like I used it because it really doesn't help.
Also wished there were some discounts on Aniplex...
Look this is great
by Sarah -
If you buy anime/manga a lot, especially if you buy it off this website, the membership is kind of a no-brainer. Yeah, I've seen some people say the exclusive coupons they give aren't all that great (and honestly they are right) but your membership still gets paired with all their weekly, daily, and monthly sales so it's not like you're missing out. The coupons mostly help if you with big purchases of items that aren't on sale, so it's not like they would never help you out.
But the nitty-gritty of it is this: it's $18 bucks a year. That's a drop in the bucket, especially if you're a collector or just have a whole bunch of people you know/buy things for that love anime and manga. I promise you, if you purchase a lot of stuff from here, you'll see just how awesome it is.
Don't buy this
by Gab -
This membership isn't worth it. It increased from $12 to $18. Coupons are useless and have too many restrictions. If you have preorders within your order of $49 and up then your whole order is delayed. You'd think they'd offer free shipping regardless of the price increase of the membership, but they haven't. I suggested free shipping to them and all they told me is that they try to provide as much as they can. Useless. You can't really get the amount you spent on the membership back unless you buy a lot.p, and I purchase manga weekly. Do not recommend.
Unless you buy frequently from RS not needed
by ROBERT -
Good if you purchase frequently.. like I do. Not so much if you only purchase a handful of titles a year.
The general 10% off comes in really handy during RS frequent sales, however be advised there is more then just a limited amount of items that this does not apply to. This can get to be very annoying.. so I recommend doing some shopping around before clicking the purchase button.
The other perks are "meh" in nature.. most require spending $XX dollars to save $5 and unless you plan on making a large purchase are rather pointless.
Overall not something I would recommend to everyone.. If you purchase frequently and are a smart shopper this can save you some $$ in the long run... not crazy $$ but enough to offset its cost.
Consider lowering the price.
by Thuan -
It is not worth it with the price increase from $12 to $18.
Was Amazing when it was $12....
by Drake -
Back in the day when this was 12 dollars it was a no brainer to get. Fantastic Sales with holiday sales you made your money back withing 3 purchases of 5 products each. But its 18 now and thats a problem for me. I can barely afford it now. If your like me who has an average job that barely supports your anime hobby while going to college, i still barely recommend the membership. Problem is if it increases in price. 18 is the max i can afford so im on the fence about renewal. However if you buy in bulk during the holiday/normal sales then its barely worth it. But now thats in danger due to sale deals getting less (due to sales on products i never heard of or want. like T-shirts..... really? i just want blu ray, figures and manga man.) Please Right stuf lower it to 12. That alone got me to shop here for my anime hobby. And now thats in danger of me looking elsewhere...
by Anime -
If you shop frequently at Rightstuf, or at least have a big order every once in awhile it will definitely save you money.
