Might pick up Code Geass, but probably not so close to Christmas so depends if it gets delayed out of there or if the CE sticks around after.

I've seen enough Nichijou gifs to know that it's something I want. Seeing Funimation is stupid and won't let me access a simple blog post because I'm not in the UK/Ireland, can anyone tell me if they've announced the contents for Nichijou and Death Parade?

Oh! Death Parade Limited Edition!! Such an awesome anime series. meh, the box is not as nice as Funi's US LE I already have, so I probably won't bother with this one.

But, that Akito The Exiled CE set looks very nice, I may have to grab that one just for the English dub to show to my friends, because I'm sure I'll eventually be showing them the original series. I do own the English-subtitled JP Blu-ray Box, and it has some really beautiful artwork:

I've long since bought the US Blu-ray of Nichijou, and I'm glad I've still got my Madman sub only DVDs to watch. Funimation killed my favourite joke with a crappy translation. I seriously ranted about it when I first experienced it, and it still leaves a sour taste in my mouth.

Ah man, I thought I was finally done with my spending sprees but now I see Nichijou & Death Parade, two I've been wanting to watch for ages, not forgetting the Hyouka LE nor AL's upcoming Black Lagoon and Josee... I won't even start on the US versions I've already imported of these...

Ugh, I do hope we can now get more consistent simultaneous releases from Funimation across both sides of the pond, than be continuously tempted to import then double dip.
