I just got the most ridiculous bargain! I bought the standard edition of "Night is Short, Walk on Girl" on CeX for £8 incl postage. I did not get what I bought.

They sent the out of print collectors edition! And I can't find any listing for it that's not silly money. The listings are between £70 and £120!

I just checked and the only page for the film on Blu-ray that CeX has doesn't specify edition. So they're clearly lumping the standard and the CE into one cheap listing, when unbeknownst to them, the CE is now really expensive. I basically struck gold. But now I also feel bad for whoever traded it in because they must have gotten peanuts.

Nice find. I had no idea Night is Short is worth that much now. I should really get around to watching my copy to see if it's something I want to keep 🤑

CeX have the same issue with other anime titles. They have one listing for Princess Principal, ostensibly for the SE, but scanning the barcode of the CE takes me to that listing. Turn A Gundam another one.

It's really ridiculous isn't it? Granted it results in stuff like this sometimes where you get an absolute steal, but the people trading in are getting seriously ripped off. I think possibly CeX as a company don't know the ins and outs of these editions and an algorithm is auto-listing this stuff.

I also notice sometimes that when you buy a more niche item on CeX for a conspicuously low price, if you look at the listing a few days after buying it, it'll have shot up to a price that's more reflective of the market. Whatever software they're using must be kinda off kilter which is why their prices are all over the place. Both of the items I bought a few days ago are now listed with a price that's almost twice what I paid.

Ping-Pong volumes 1 & 2 from Wordery using the code FRIDAY12. There's supposed to be 5 volumes, but looking at the page count and price I'm guessing these are omnibus editions.

I bought:

Gankutsuo Standard Blu-ray - £10 off CeX - never seen this one weirdly and the art looks lush.

Ergo Proxy Blu-ray Collection - £15 off MVM, I couldn't not buy it when I saw they'd slashed it that low. I had it on DVD years ago but ended up selling it along with a lot of other stuff when I was a student. I remember liking it but not really understanding all of it, but I last watched it when I was 19 so I'm excited to go back to it.

From the Black Friday and Family Ties (basically the same, but just themed around families) coin back events on Bookwalker.

Batch 1 with real money:

Got me enough coins, along with the ones I already had, for batch 2:

Which got me enough coins for batch 3:

Which as I had run out of first 4 volumes on my wishlist only got me enough coins for the 3 Konosuba volumes in batch 4. I needed just a little extra for the next rank and coins for the next pre-order, so added a volume of Attack on Titan:

So 22 volumes of manga for c. 50 quid!

I read Days of Love a month or so back (I didn't get as good a deal as that, but I went for hard copies). Pretty decent but unfortunately a little short. Not a huge amount of time to develop characters or a plot in 3 volumes.
