On a different note. Was that duplicate thing (after the statement of no duplicates) from the mystery box ever addressed to again?
Just kinda curious (I did get all 4 with the duplicates in there. Though they don't make me fret as much as much as I'm a notorious duplicate airhead anyway.)
The duplicate thing was in part our fault, as we had some titles that were the same on both formats when ideally it should have just been all different titles [I blame the boss for picking the titles]. Whilst it was stated duplicates wouldn't be an issue, unfortunately it applied more if customers had bought all 4 bundles in one order. With the amount of orders to go through, it was near impossible to go through and see if any had been ordered separate - hence why some customers got duplicates.

But feel free to send us an email if you'd wish to get the replacements.

So uh, has the Garden of Sinners set always had an RRP of £179.99? It's currently listed at £125.99 on your site and I'm sure it was cheaper than that, and the listing on Amazon that was still £90 like yesterday is now unavailable... So has the price went up?

I mentioned this elsewhere but I'd be interested in knowing if that's the case of not...
It was, but we had to increase the price.

Ouch. Can understand if there are complications with Garden of Sinners but that's pushed it outside my price range.
I'll keep an eye out once things have settled down if the prices decreases.

I would hope/assume they would still honour pre order prices, especially as you are charged in advance if you use PayPal I believe?

Yup, just checked. I used PayPal for it, probably get more news on it when their sure it's gonna be the date they've set now, probably take a week or two to be sure it doesn't change

Understandable, but on the bright side it's still cheaper than the US [$319.98 SRP / ~£257.02] and Japanese [¥37,800 SRP / ~£281.24] releases.
I Imported both the Japanese Standard Edition and Limited Edition Box sets from Amazon JP back in 2014 and 2016, and I was just checking my anime spreadsheet and was totally shocked; I didn't realized I paid US $266 for the SE set, and $263 for the big LE Box set - so I actually paid three dollars less for the big LE BD-Box set with art book than I did for the SE box!

I was considering quadruple-dipping for the MVM set, since GoS is a huge anime favorite of mine, but since it looks very similar to the AoJ/AoA release, I suppose I'll pass, as it would be a bit of overkill, lol. In addition to the JP SE and LE BD-Box sets, I also have the seven JP DVD LE Singles with the soundtrack CD in each (although the DVDs are not English friendly), and the JP and AoA Recalled Out Summer sets.

I paid roughly ¥28,000 (£208 but was refunded £35 because it dodged customs) back in 2015 for the standard edition BD-BOX.

Just curious: Is there a list which MVM Blu-rays have gone out of print and that aren't listed on Anime on Line anymore?
(excluding those replaced by a "complete series" or "standard edition" release)
