Yes, amazon are good... but the cost of shipping to any country outside of the US is just crazy.

Amazon doesn't have madoka magica unfortunately, plus as it's been said shipping costs are crazy.

This post is similar to what i told my dad when i wanted a new 2TB HDD for more anime. There isn't a good anime shop out side the US and obv Japan. Also i don't know if amazon do region free BD's. I know Play.com have started to sell anime and are getting more BD;s in stock.

Blu-rays should be playable internationally. Most of mine are from Amazon, and have no problems playing them in Australia!

Madoka Magica is a special case that RightStuf will not ship abroad isn't it (due to Aniplex)? I say that beause I get most of my anime from there to the UK. I don't know if all US anime stores are abiding by this rule or not, but you could try RACS or AnimeNation, both ship internationally, not that I have ever actually got anything from either of them because they are just too damn expensive.

Apart from that, best bet is Amazon, imo.

Also, Blu-Rays do have region codes: A, B and C.

Oh, right, yeah, shoulda mentioned that. Unlike DVDs, lots of retail Blu-Rays include multiple regions on one disc, or are simply region-free.
You can find a lot of the info about them here: http://bluray.liesinc.net/

Some Blu-Ray players can be hacked/unlocked to play different regions, just like DVD players as well.
