The Anime/Manga I Bought Today Was...

Girls with Guns

Combat Butler
I placed two orders today with Rightstuf:

The first order will ship as soon as Heavens Feel III comes into stock next week:

Fate/Stay Night Heaven's Feel III. spring song Limited Edition Blu-ray
Fire Force Season 2 Part 1 Blu-ray/DVD
The Ancient Magus' Bride Supplement Volume 2 (manga style book)

Then I made a separate pre-order for some September anime, with release dates between 9/14 and 9/28. I wanted to get these ordered before I travel to Philadelphia for my cancer surgery this Thursday, since I don't know how long I will be down and out afterwards - plus, all the steelbooks happen to be on sale this week:

Porco Rosso Steelbook
From Up on Poppy Hill Steelbook
Perfect Blue Steelbook
City Hunter Season 2 Part 2

They have complete sets for season 1 and 2, I won’t lie, I’m pretty close to pulling the trigger on them 😳

I don't usually buy B-Style figures, because they're usually just generic bunny figures, but after seeing how cute the Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear one turned out with her personality and incorporation of the bear theme I just had to order it.

Flame Haze
Yotsuba&! Vol 15 (pre-order) and Hi Score Girl vol 6 from Wordery with the code AUG15
And more volumes of School Live and Yuuna and the Haunted Hot Springs from Bookwalker from a coin back event which has ended so no link. Got in last minute as it's pay day today.

Fate/Stay Night [Heaven's Feel] III. Spring Song
Limited Edition Blu-ray Disc Box​

Well this is very amusing and awkward timing given the US is finally releasing it, but I have now ordered the film from Amazon Japan. This set came out back in late March but a number of various factors prevented me from actually getting it sooner (manga/novel stock problems combined with the Anime Ltd pre-orders and the whole PlayStation fiasco). Since now was essentially a void moment for me, I decided it was time to finally get the set done and dusted.

I imported the Japanese releases for the films because it was arguably cheaper and packaging-wise was a bit nicer than the US version (the only thing that I would miss out on outside of the dub were the English translations for one of the booklets). If I wanted the English dub I can always just get the UK standard sets or wait for Aniplex USA to do a movie trilogy box set later down the line if needed be.

With Heaven's Feel sorted, the next Aniplex target will probably go to Apocrypha as Japan is doing a BD-Box and I'm still interested in owning the two LE box sets Aniplex USA have released a few years ago.

I look forward to your unboxings of these. I missed the CE from MVM for the first movie, have it for the second one, resulting in a wonky collection heh. Doubt I'll find a reasonably priced MVM CE for the first one now so am just tempted to get either the American or Japanese sets though I don't think I want to part with my money, especially not knowing how bad the import costs would be...

Indeed this will be an interesting one as it'll be done in a different location compared to the other two which were back in my old flat (the second one was also annoying to sort out due to the reflection on the digipack).

The Japanese releases will stay in print for a long while and may even go for cheaper on the auction sites, but in general I would say it all comes down to whether you like to watch it dubbed or subbed since the Japanese releases are subbed only (though a Trilogy BD-Box will probably include the dub like Fate/Zero, Fate/Stay Night [Unlimited Blade Works] and the upcoming Fate/Apocrypha have previously done). Aniplex so far has consistently kept Fate in print whether it's a re-release or the original stock so far.

Top tips, thanks for the info. I can rest easy for now then heh. I watch subs only so either release would do nicely for me.

Ah, that is interesting. Is that likely in the future then you think? If so, I'd quite happily put up with my wonky collection and wait for that then!
