Nice to hear. As a yuri fan it's been on my radar for a while and though I've heard it's mostly Class S it'd be interesting to watch for its influence on the genre

Even tho I'm bi I'm not massively into ships and whatnot so I don't actively seek out lots of yaoi or yuri but I did really enjoy Marimite, and some of it was just so profound and lovely
particularly the storyline about the Buddhist girl and Catholic girl who are drawn to different faiths than the ones they were raised with, that was so sweet and handled fairly sensitively overall, I really wanna find/take a screenshot of that lovely image of the statue of the two monks holding each other that is in one scene of the show
, I also remember it looking really pretty overall, like I'd need to rewatch in HD to really comment on the animation quality but it's def one of Studio Deen's nicest looking shows. Also, FWIW, I'm an atheist and I do think the show's portrayal of a Catholic girls' school is unrealistic but I still think the show has a lot to offer in spite of that.

With fears of it going out of print I ordered Kase-san volume 2 from eBay and volumes 3-5 from Amazon. Considering how a lot of manga (particularly from Seven Seas) are going OOP these days I may as well go digital for any new series

For the second week of the Rightstuf Birthday Sale I picked up 3 Blu-ray titles, of which only one was actually in the sale:

The Twelve Kingdoms Complete Series (Discotek, Low Stock)
The Magnificent KOTOBUKI the Movie (Released a month early, loved the series)
From the New World Complete Collection (In the Sale, Low Stock?)

Is it Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? II
(Premium Edition Blu-ray & DVD)​

It's been a while since I had not only ordered a Sentai limited edition box set, but also use Rightstuf. It is a pretty expensive order, but the main reason why I used them for this instance is because not long ago Sentai announced that they expect this release to sell out completely before another sale occurs so I decided it was time to act now. This reminds me of when I ordered Sword Oratoria two years ago from Rightstuf's sale which ended up selling out not long after.

Now you might be wondering why I ordered Sentai's over MVM's. The reason is pretty simple as I own Season 1 & the OVA through Sentai and those were also limited edition sets. Basically consistency and given how the franchise is mainly offering roughly one title every few years it's much easier to sort out than others. The Season 2 box is also thinner than the first season for the shelf so size-wise is practically the same as owning a UK variant. DanMachi is one of those shows where you forget that you like the series until you watch more episodes of it.

For those curious about pricing/payment. I used PayPal but also its USD currency through Monzo so I get the best result. This process actually helps a lot because otherwise I would have to repeat Rightstuf's ID/Card evidence verification stupidity as you often have to do that for every address or card info change/adjustment each time. Since it's FedEx shipping it could arrive before the end of the week but I suspect early next week at best.

Bought the Final part off Ebay with the DBZ Movie Collection(DVD).

Bought Lupin the third the first. Not the first of my Lupin the third purchases but actually the third of them now. The Synopsis say's it mentions Lupin the first but it's actually about Lupin the third as this is the first adventure of Lupin the third. This is also the third release by AL for Lupin the third so I had to get the first CE they put up for Lupin the third the first.

I'll see myself out.

Mooooooore Yuri (another set of anthologies called Éclair, including 2 stories from the mangaka behind Bloom into You) from Bookwalker:

As you can see I got plenty of coin back, this is due to their Ecchi Summer Fair:

I used the coins to buy 3 more volumes of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya as I'm currently signed up to a VPN and as they are also running a site wide 30% coin back offer, so I got some extra coins back from them too.
