One cost of living in Australia: With one fifteenth the population of America, and effectively one anime distributor, we don't get sales like this. I could order it from Robert, but by the time I take into account shipping, customs fees, and Australian sales tax, it ain't so cheap any more.
Plus, I already have the Ah! My Goddess movie, Ai Yori Aoshi, Armitage, El Hazard, Lain, all of Mahoromatic, Read or Die, Sol Bianca, Sugar, Tenchi Muyo, Trigun... And two copies of Haibane Renmei.* There's Stellvia - I have the fansub, but haven't watched it - but apart from that the most I'd be doing is replacing VHS tapes (or in some cases laserdiscs) with DVDs.
Now, if it was $5 per DVD from a store here in Sydney I'd be right there.

Also, small orders - less than $100 or so - are usually ignored as well.
But for small orders the shipping can cost nearly as much as the goods. At least it does if you get it shipped airmail, and having had a big surface mail shipment simply disappear without so much as an apology (much less any reimbursement) I don't do surface mail no more.
