with the merging of Rightstuf into Crunchyroll this feels like the worst timing for UP1 to close for UK import peeps.
yes we'll still be able use forwarders for Crunchyroll, but I'm pretty sure those juicy juicy sales are not going to transfer with the merge.
I need a hero, I'm holding out for a...
YKK volume 3 finally arrived today, look at that fancy rainbow reflection!
Also got some bargains in CeX: a minty Arslan S1 Ltd Ed for £10 (the box is really nice!) and Robotech S2 for £5 (even if it was mangled for western release it's 80s mecha for a fiver, might as well)
Finally Ocean Waves...
I've got a Sony UBP-X500, it doesn't come with any apps but I didn't want them as my TV does that already.
it's been absolutely rock solid for me so far, played everything I've thrown at it including h265 mkvs via the USB. also remembers where you are on a disc if you pause and switch it off, so...
Gundam ZZ 1-8
was feeling a bit lost after finishing Zeta, so what the hell started up double Zeta. its going to be twice as good, right?!?

Rightstuf sale order finally here!

Sound Of The Sky has been on my wants list for a few years now, so v happy to finally own a...
Interesting, I didn't know that game had English support, onto the wishlist it goes.
I've been collecting Switch VNs for a while now and it's frustrating trying to figure out which JP released ones have English language support.
e.g. I bought the following over the last month or so, the first 2...
good stuff, this was part of the new Sentai Sale, right??!?
they also have a Mystery Box of OOP LEs that they claim is $400 of value for $125.
never going to pay that much for random stuff but intrigued to find out what people get in their bundles!
mid-season review time!
Undead Murder Farce - my fav of the season so far. reminds me of shows like Baccano with great direction, snappy dialog with a large set of interesting characters etc. has the potential to maybe overreach with all the famous fictional characters popping up, but doing an...
finally finished Zeta Gundam. really enjoyed it, especially the second half when things start hotting up. the amount of times someone would go on an unauthorised trip in a mobile suit made me laugh though, you'd think after a couple of times they'd clamp down on that sort of thing.
