We are nearing the end of the 2010s era but that won't stop these two UK distributors from offering their special 12 Days of Christmas offerings. Last year I provided a thread focused on Anime Limited, but for this year I'll cover both Anime Limited and MVM Entertainment as they both share the same general concept.



The quick link to the Anime Limited 12 Days of Christmas section is here
New sales every day from 1st to 12th December at 5:00pm GMT/UK.
Each sale will last from 5:00pm GMT/UK until 4:00pm GMT/UK the next day.
Shipping will be available for UK, Ireland & International residents.

The quick link to the MVM Anime-on-Line 12 Days of Christmas section is here
New sales every day from 9th to 20th December at 9:00am GMT/UK.
Each sale will last for at least 24 hours.
Shipping will be available for UK, Ireland & International residents.​

The stock will also be limited so if you want to get them, get them as soon as possible. For the mystery box (which I believe both distributors will offer this year once again - on the 12th Dec (AL) and 20th Dec (MVM) respectively), they will be limited to a certain number of units, generally 500 but again that may change until further notice. These mystery boxes can make the chosen titles sell out completely (and in some cases out of print) if you're not careful.

The sales will be a combination of older titles that are already on sale and possibly a few brand new or upcoming titles.

Anime Limited Sales Offerings:

Day 1 - Funimation: Endgame (Clearance Sale - 1st Dec to 6th Jan 2020)
This is a rare case, but Anime Limited are offering every last remaining title from the Funimation UK catalog until 6th January 2020 or sooner. However, these titles will not ship out until January 2020 at the earliest.

The rules regarding Mystery Boxes is that they don't include titles that were already featured in the boxes from the previous years and they don't include titles that were on sale during the first 11 days of that year (for example if March comes in like a Lion Season 1 Part 1 goes on sale for Day 2, it won't be included in the mystery box).

Anime Limited Mystery Box Historical Stats:

For Anime Limited here are the list of titles featured in the boxes from previous years (Blu-ray wise - red titles indicate they're out of print):

I was a little disappointed in mystery boxes last year, not much I’d think of keeping, I’d probably still go for AL’s though or wildcard it and go for MVMs, everyone and their dog seems to know what AL has and it’s a popular choice not to keep about half of those titles where most people on the forum aren’t totally sure what MVM actually has, a cursory look at their Twitter does show a few titles falling behind with little clue of when they actually have them

in the words of when the Star Wars movies were still good, I shall await the decision of the senate (or the forum, I doubt much people here have so much political power)

From a quick search of the forum. Not the easiest tool to use. It seems last years MVM box had:
Love and Lies
Matoi the Sacred slayer
Norn9
Skip Beat
Heavens Lost Property

As for the year before if I'm remembering rightly I'm pretty sure it contained
ReKan,
Love Election and Chocolate,
Kill Me Baby,
Nyan Koi,
And one other which I think was either Familiar of Zero s1 or Hidamari Sketch s1

What are the chances early monogatari stuff gets discounted on MVM's sale? Looking at Bakemon and Nisemon specifically, but would buy others if there's a good promo.

I've been eyeing them on Amazon, and it's not like they're super expensive, but if I can spare a few munnies, why not.

iirc a bundle of nise and bake was £30 last year so the £16 most of them were/are going for on amazon is probably a decent price for them but MVM could do another surprise bundle for them so it's a gamble to get them from amazon now but i guess you could always send them back

They're 22.50 and 31.50 respectively on Amazon, which as I said isn't very expensive, but if I could wait a bit and have them cheaper, it would be cool.

30 for both sounds pretty good, so I'll just wait a few days, see what's what. Thanks!

@NormanicGrav: Feel free to use any of the above info as you wish for your opening post.

30 for both sounds pretty good
That's pretty much spot-on. 👍
Day 3 last year included a Bakemono+Nisemonogatari bundle for £39.99 on BD and £29.99 on DVD.

I noticed Andrew tweeted...

Got lots of specials coming up! Including a last chance on some things that have not been otherwise available all year too...stay tuned!
Last chance to buy some of the Funi sets that vanished without warning or have they just found a box of OOP stuff while moving their stock to the new warehouse? I would love a chance to grab that Snow White set they did.

This is me but with the Ass Class set, I’ve regretted not picking it up since they all disappeared.

That was my first thought as well when he mentioned that, because there's no way that they would sell out on every unit immediately so they must have kept it in their vault until further notice.

There are a couple of Funimation standard sets that I am interested in getting if they do re-sell them.

for reference if the Assassination Classroom set is back for sale again, how do CEX handle the original parts? do you need the cardboard space holder when trading in or not?

I am an international buyer and i do know that Anime Limited ships the mystery boxes outside of uk as i already tried it but what about mvm entertainment? do they ship them outside of the uk? Cause if they dont might wanna arrange for my relatives there to buy it from me and than get it later.

MVM has said that they will allow international shipping and I suspect that should apply to mystery boxes as well if they do decide to offer one this year.

I've seen anime DVDs in CEX that have reprinted sleeves with the CEX logo on. It carries the promise that the discs themselves are the originals, so that leads me to think that you literally only need the set of discs to sell them. 🤔

I could be wrong, of course.
