Went a little deep on this MVM sale!

Arslan season 2
Girls Last Tour Collectors
Land of the Lustrous
Vatican Miracle Examiner


At one point my basket had way more stuff in it!
 

Buzzkillington

Dragon Knight
Made in Abyss and Girls' Last Tour CEs from the MVM sale. I may go back for Land of the Lustrous but I kind of want the US steelbook, but that's also like double the price due to this sale so eeeeeeeh, not sure I want it enough to pay double tbh.

I do like getting a steel book but it’s not always necessary for the price when it’s already a good series
 

Demelza

Adventuring Alchemist
AUKN Staff
Preordered Kizumonogatari parts 1 & 2 with the MVM code. I was originally only going to buy part 3 when it's pre-orderable in the future (because I've already seen 1 & 2 but not 3), but I realised that it would bug me not having all 3 and I guess it would be nice to have the option to watch the other 2. I'll at least not be able to get them cheaper than this I guess.

True, I've not actually seen it (I haven't seen MiA or GLT either...) but I just think MVMs release looks very sloppy, but at like half the price...

Anyway I've also just ordered Re:Zero Part 2 with the Anime Limited code thingy because who needs to pay rent this month really...

*Add SamFlam Part 1 & 2 too, it's cheap and I'm curious to see why people say what they say about it lol

I don't know what's said about that show but I really enjoyed it. It repeatedly took me by surprise with the twists and turns it took and is pretty fast paced. It's OTT buts that's where most of the fun lies.

For the price they're charging I the sale it's 100% worth it in my view.

It's considered a sub-par original title that led to the bankruptcy of the studio that produced it

Wow that's mad. Personally I liked it and there are way worse shows out there so surprised it did so badly as to end the studio!
If it doesn't sell, and the company put alot of money into it. That can lead to eventual bankruptcy. Studios dont' make much/if any profit from shows they are contracted to make so when they do their own original production it can either make them alot of money freeing them up to make more original productions, or become a big massive amount of red ink on their finances. SamFlam is mostly the latter. The were other issues with the studio, but SamFlam really didn't help their situation out.

Fair. It's a real shame though. Even if it's not a huge a success I kinda don't want to see studios getting punished for being brave and pushing the boat out on something original. Guess it's the way it goes though.
