Great Teacher
The claymore CE was the one that surprised me, although only saw that after it was out of stock, paid way more than that for my copy 2nd hand.
Grimagar CE I love the art so much that I want to buy all the CE of that box set, but that and blood blockade CE you still see floating around on ebay for ok prices, not sure you'll beat £22 and you know it less likey to come with value added dents (from poor packaging).

Despite my better judgment I’m still looking at some of the sale pickings

is Durarara season 2 expected to ever have a regular blu ray release?
Can only see the cheap DVDs and much more expensive blu ray CEs
I’d after avoid buying DVD if can be helped

Christmas Sales have ALREADY destroyed me. Considering I completely missed out on last years one for the most part... Both Anime Limited and MVM have wrecked me.

My list already,
-Both Mystery Boxes
-Noragami Aragoto Collectors Edition
-Bartender Collectors Edition
-Tamako Market Collectors Edition
-Noein Collectors Edition
-Welcome to the Ballroom 1 and 2 Collectors Edition (BOGOF)
-SAO Alicization Part 1 and 2 (BOGOF)
-Konosuba Season 1 and 2 (BOGOF)
-Kokkoku Collectors Editon and Show By Rock (BOGOF)
-Kokoro Connect Complete Series and OVA Collection
-Familiar of Zero Season 2 and Season 3
-Devil Survivor 2 The Animation
-Shakugan No Shana Season 1 ans 2
-Nozaki Kun Collectors Edition
-Soni-Ani Complete Series
-Little Busters Season 1

THIS IS JUST DAY 1?!?!?
HALP ME! 😂😭
Tbh I saved a bit. I knew this year was gonna be a big one for me.
On the plus side; most of those MVM titles are insanely cheap, and they’re not going to be adding to the list each day…
I do note some things like W2tB (and Kings’ Game, etc) being in last years’ mystery box, and now valued at about £10 or less; which implies the titles have severely depreciated or the box was overpriced. Still; mug that I am, I’ve ordered both boxes (again).
Day 1 end, and I’ve spent approximately £480 at AtA, and £200 with MVM. And I haven’t even looked at the higher priced items yet.

Did they list titles from last year that were already sold out back then? Like these were already sold out last time they were for sale on the AL store:
  • Lucky Star
  • Attack on Titan Junior High - Collector's Edition
  • Barakamon
  • Shimoneta
I didn't take a look at the website at the exact time they went online today, but seems that either they had very few copies that sold out almost immediately, or they simply put all the same titles out - whether they actually had stock or not.

can confirm they were all in stock but sold out very quickly, I had Lucky Star in my basket but it was sold out by the time I went to checkout. did manage to get Barakamon tho.

So they just shouldn't have put them up for sale at all?

You and quite a few others are annoyed, but there's likely a (very) small group of people who were thrilled to actually get the items.

What they probably should have done is stated on twitter (or here) that they had an extremely limited number of older OOP items that would be going up in the sale, which could quite easily be sold out within minutes, at least that'd temper expectations a little.

Yes
A few already had "low stock"
Next to them before ordering... These ones did not

Got the Black Lagoon email too, finally got a delay email for On-Gaku today as well.

Honestly as someone that will probably never even open the booklet, that delay for an extra 12 pages is annoying.

you know I added Shomin Sample to my list of possible purchases at the end of the 12th days but I had a nagging feeling I already owned it and I did. The poor show so much I already had it and forgot about it 😂
