    It's strange they used to be really quick with shipping I remember waking up on a Saturday morning and finding my copy Durarara!! Even though it didn't come out till monday.

    If you have Prime you can probably wangle a free extension to your subscription for the delay via web chat even if it isn't their fault. Not that I would do this >_>

    What a curiously suggestive word 'wangle' is.

    Also the art cards are really underwhelming Sidonia had much nicer art cards.

    Change my mind about the art card there horrendously bad don't see why they couldn't just copy the art cards sentai used.

    Can't seem to be able to upload pictures off my tablet but it's basically what's in the picture above.

    Also you can actually get the case out the of the box unlike with season one where you had to angrily shake it.
     
  10. The card is pretty thin, although it isn't flimsy, and the art cards fit inside the Blu-ray Amaray with a couple of millimetres to spare. What probably would have been preferable would have been a slightly wider chipboard case, and cards large enough to fit in that, almost twice the size. Also the backs are plain white, no image or backing at all.

    Hope Dan machi and Amagi don't get simular treatment expect much more for the prices there asking

    Expect much more from something listed as "Deluxe".

    Got both of those two on pre-order. Would rather an artbook than a poster, the posters are pointless in my opinion. Why would you want a poster displayed with fold lines.

    Was hoping we would get the same deluxe editions that Sentai are releasing. We did with Akame ga Kill.

    The Sentai clone sets didnt sell. Seriously how hard is it to put together a little art book? Nobody wants folded posters its not the 1990's. The arts cards are prettty useless as well. I will give them credit for the ridged box but if your charging those kind of prices people expect more. It just screams cant be arsed.

    For the £35 AOL will be charging, I'd be content with a standard edition, so the rigid box and accompanying crap are irrelevant to me.

    Thankfully it says for limited time only in there product description so unless I see either at a reasonable price I'll be waiting for the standard

    I'm disappointed with the design of the art cards, The manga entertainment logo and TBS logo on the front of the card the should have put them on the back. I've added some pictures in the spoiler tag.
