Got dispatch for El-Hazard

Did you order that with anything else or on its own? Waiting on dispatch notice for Silver Spoon, which is in stock at Amazon, but wonder if Boogiepop holding it up.

I got dispatch early this morning for the El Hazard CE as well, international to the US, and it was in one of my 12 Days pre-orders along with the Kakegurui CE and Boogiepop CE. I guess AtA are going to ship out all the pre-order CEs one at a time, as they set all of them to have different release dates a week apart - barring any delays, of course.

About Fedex, my parcel from Right Stuf arrived in the depot nearest me friday new year's eve, late the following monday night it's status was updated to "Clearance delay - Import / Clearance instructions from the importer are required.", I tried contacting them via email and didn't even get an acknowledgement, absolutely no movement on it by friday so I tried emailing Right Stuf themselves, they pretty much said that they've seen this happen quite a bit, there isn't actually any issue with it, it's just sitting on a shelf somewhere, delayed while Fedex prioritize other stuff, they said they'd contact their Fedex rep and ask them to contact the depot and get it moving again.

That was late friday night, and sure enough if it was on a delivery truck early this morning (monday) and delivered before noon, and I've already received another email from Right Stuf saying their rep got back to them saying it was delivered, and them asking me to get back to them and confirm everything is ok.

Sorry, long winded, my point is we are not actually the courier's customers, Right Stuf or AllTheAnime are, and I'm fairly certain Fedex in particular consider deliveries to domestic addresses low priority, if you really want them to get a move on you'll probably have much better luck going through who you ordered the stuff from rather than trying Fedex themselves (who still haven't gotten back to me from when I emailed them myself :p ).

Also, Right Stuf are awesome. ;)

On a totally unrelated note, was there no early bird offer for the 4k release of Your Name, or did I just miss it somehow?

Reco movie 3 has arrived, yay! However, no A3 posters and no photo set.

I haven't been able to find any info for these online so it just occured to me- these were the pre-order bonuses for the Love Live Sunshine import edition a few years back, which also had an exclusive flyer. Guessing by accident someone was using that old listing for this and forgot to edit it out?

I've sent them a message. I hope its not a mistake as the only reason I ordered with AL was for the bonus items otherwise I would have got it elsewhere for cheaper.

The only extras I can find any record of are a pair of square art boards depicting either one of two Amerian MS, which were apparently a bonus with purchases at select Japanese retail stores.

Was worried at first because usually the import extras come in separate envelopes to the Blu-ray (Hathaway for instance had 2 A4 envelopes for the art card and animation sketches). But the more I think on it, the more it feels like an accidental template error.

In that case, no idea what's keeping them from sending Silver Spoon. I paid a month ago, release date has passed, stock is now sitting in Amazon warehouses, and... nuffin.

This is why I usually avoid their store in favour of UP. Except they don't have any of these releases listed yet 😫

My last Christmas sale item Konosuba 2 has been dispatched.
Had completely forgotten about this. Probably because I didn't think Season 1 was that good.
Technically it's free so that is good.

anyone order the Nadesico TV series during the 12 days of christmas sale and had it ship yet? When I ordered it, it did say "awaiting new pressing in January"

Everyone getting their El-Hazard sets while my tracking is the same since the 10th - sender dispatching item. I presume mine was dispatched at the same time as everyone else’s. So why’s it not here yet.

At least you don't have to wait 2-3 weeks for it to ship here to the US! I got my dispatch email Monday, but it will probably be February until I receive it... :(

I don't know about yours but mine actually isn't going through Langely HWDC, which took ages to process last time. Hopefully this is faster and gets here before February.

Ok, wow, I'll need to redact my previous post! I just checked my tracking and it has been updated - My El Hazard CE shipped out and then went through Langley HWDC on Tuesday the 11th, and was in New York the next day, Wednesday the 12th, with expected delivery this Saturday the 15th - That's only 4 days from UK to my house, and will be a record delivery time! The quickest I've ever gotten a UK shipment before was 5 days, but the normal shipping time is 8-14 days, and that is without Covid or Holiday backups.
