Here's why Right Stuf is awesome.
1) Consistently deliver quality support and respect anime fans, many being fans of anime themselves
2) Actively involved in the community, including the owners having conversations with anime fans on forums such as Anime News Network, and actually USE the feedback to make positive changes in their business
3) Not only do they sell a huge range of products, but they should be considered as Industry Guests for their role in Licensing and/or Distributing anime titles such as ARIA, and Maria-Sama ga Miteru, Rental Magica, Dirty Pair, Revolutionary Girl Utena, Kare Kano and others.
I highly respect this company both as a consumer and business student, for its business decisions and even though some anime fans may be critical of their liecense due to the fact that most do not include English dubs, their team is constantly fighting to drive down the price of anime for anime fans, without sacrificing quality (not to sound like an advertisement, but their ARIA box sets are beautiful, and not some cheap paper insert placed in a plastic casing.
Not to mention...they are practically our neighbors, just a couple states away, located in Iowa, it's not like they will be traveling across the country to get here. I'm sure I don't just speak for myself when I say "why hasn't this happened yet?" lol. Next year guys, for sure.
EDIT: Disclaimer, I don't work for Nozomi in any way, I'm purely a fan lol.
