I wonder if some of my items have got the same treatment. I'm still waiting for One Piece; it was sent early May and now it's late June. The longest time a parcel has taken to arrive is 6 weeks though, so hopefully it should be some time soon.
Anyway, as for my Japanese imports - which I will post good quality pictures of at some point, I received:
Paprika LE boxset (2 discs (not opened the cases yet so could be double+ packed) and a huge inch+ thick storyboard book)
Tokyo Godfathers LE boxset (has English subtitles) (same as Paprika)
Gin-iro no kami no agito (Agito's Silver Hair/Origin) LE boxset (came with some clover seeds + soil in a little tin!) (and it's got 3 discs, compared to the R1 special edition release had 2 discs, so I wonder what's on the third, AND I'm SO going to watch this movie with no subs, already seen it a couple of times, and no doubt the quality will be fantastic compared to Funimations disgusting hack-job video quality)
Fullmetal Alchemist movie LE boxset (has English subtitles - and is much more substantial than Funimations efforts (although Funimations effort for the LE movie release was top notch for an American release))
Rahxephon CD box (all 3 soundtracks + movie soundtrack) (the artwork on the front is phenomenal - Reika looks nothing like her anime-look in a good way, and Quon looks fabulous - they both look real O_O)
Appleseed LE boxset (storyboard book, art book and I think 3 discs)
Metal Gear Solid 4 soundtrack first pressing (2 discs in DVD sized super-jewel case w/ metallic booklet) (this was quite a surprise, the first pressing being so different from a regular pressing, very very happy with it, the sound is just phenomenal as well)
Tales of Earthsea special edition (English subtitles) (4 discs inside a regular case + a small booklet - I've noticed that Ghibli releases are barebones except for the discs)
Probably already mentioned getting the Brave Story LE boxset about a month back.
Also, Evangelion Rebuild 1.01 movie LE + Kaiba 1 LE boxset are on the way when Kaiba is released on the 25th!
I preordered the four Soul Eater first pressings for the goodies, as well. And the second Bleach movie LE (need to find the first somehow),Grave of the Fireflies HD remaster first pressing (I should wait for the Blu-ray, but I wanted to see it again remastered), and Aya Hirano's first album - Riot Girl, first pressing.
Thinking of ordering 5cm per second LE boxset (can't find in usual places, very hard to get), Tekkonkinkreet LE boxset, Girl Who Leapt Through Time LE boxset (both of these are available, just need to get around to ordering them), and Appleseed Ex Machina premium edition boxset (though it has a useless HD-DVD as an extra), likewise with Vexille. And hopefully Sky Crawlers will contain English subtitles whenever it arrives. All of Kokia's albums + works. Lots more to mention, but that's everything off-hand.
TV series are too expensive to get an entire series at the moment, Kaiba and Soul Eater are exceptions.
