The saga of the FMA DVD, Amazon, HMV and me  
And I ask a question I fear no one can answer...

Here's how things are going- I wanted to get the FMA DVD1 starter set from HMV with my gift certificate. However, HMV's site is a division of amazon and HMV won't let you use gift certificates online. I don't have a credit card and so can't order it off amazon... And I still have the gift certificate.

So, my point (and question) is thus: Does anyone know if HMV will be stocking the starter set so I can go in and buy it on Feb. 8? Do they sell the starter sets beyond pre-order? Or am I doomed to lack FMA? :(

HMV is okay in getting anime DVDs but I haven't seen them with a lot of boxes. The best thing to do would probably ask them to bring it in, then get there early before someone snags it, I can't remember if they do orders.

I don't know anything about HMV but most stores (Media Play, Best Buy, etc.) usually carry box sets on the day they are released. So all I can say is, call this store and ask them if they are going to carry it. Or just stop down there on the 8th and have a look then.

Ooo... I really doubt they'll carry the starter set. Probably only the single DVD alone. HMV isn't very updated in the anime department (from what I've seen ><;;)

most big stores like hmv have an information desk where you can reserve items or ask that they ship one in especially for you -- if they sell it in any of their physical stores, they'll send it over to your store and hold it for you. i don't think i've ever done this for hmv, but i'd be shocked if they weren't keeping up with the competition this way.
