The Anime/Manga I Bought Today Was...

Made an order with Mandarake for:
Love Live! Nijigasaki High School Idol Club 7 volume Blu-ray collection
Keifuku-san DVD
Love Live! Superstar!! art book
Love Live! Nijigasaki High School Idol Club fan book

Since I hate consistency in my collection I went for the Japanese release of the Nijigasaki series. But more seriously Nijigasaki is my favourite instalment in the franchise thus far and I figured I'd go for something a bit grander than the usual Anime Limited release. Threw in a few extras as well including Keifuku-san, a neat little OVA from Studio Irodori, the creative trio behind Kemono Friends' first season and Kemurikusa.

Came across the Region A versions Magical Index 2 and Scientific Railgun 2 for £10 each on ebay and I couldn't not buy them for that price.

Now just to get the first seasons, probably next month. The decision now is do I get the UK versions of the first seasons or try to get the USA release...?

I think the main annoyance with the UK versions was they switched from Blu-ray cases too a flimsy box with 2 DVD cases for dual play for season 2 (but you've avioded that for the most part), so there was never really a good way to display (I just re-cased a bunch on stuff into the S1's). Seaons 1 of the UK one's also had a 14mm case with art box (or can come/ may have been first run only). US Season 1 is just a slip cover I belive.

The US season 2's I think are in fat blu-ray cases so I would think mixing wouldn't matter too much, but they also haven't pushed out Season 3 or anything more recent in the UK, so will have to wait and see if that even happens.

Jus t a quick check if a certain set of disc has any defects via the defective disc thread:
A Certain Scientific Railgun season 1 (Manga UK): There's a 7-second video glitch which was also present on the US edition.

I suspect UK version will be easier and cheaper to get hold of and probably just margina cover differnces but depends how much that'll bother you(), may even find one with an art box, and region B is always a nice option.

Yep, I just ordered the Weathering with You 4K+BD Lenticular steelbook from Nova Media yesterday. I've been collecting only lenticular anime releases from Korea over the past 8 years, starting out with the two Ghost in the Shell SAC and 2nd Gig Lenticular box sets. I have 14 or 15 of their lenticular anime sets in my collection now. The only one I missed that I am aware of was the Akira lenticular, so I'll have to try to pick up a used copy elsewhere, eventually.

I love lenticular Blu-ray releases just as much as I love 3D movies and my 3D projection theater in my basement! :cool: <-- 3D glasses!

Yeah that akira set’s already legendary, I keep checking eBay but they only have the box sets that contain all three editions. The cheapest listing at the moment is £365 plus shipping.

Cool, I have the JP 3D Blu-ray release for that one, along with the Japanese 3D versions of 009 Re:Cyborg and the first Garden of Sinners movie Overlooking View - and a Hong Kong limited release of Space Captain Harlock 3D, that came with a full-size rolled theatrical poster which is still hanging on the wall of my theater room:

New set of Bookwalker coin back events are live with the big one being the site wide 30% coin back. I didn't buy anything from the others, but early volumes of books with these themes will have a higher percentage: Isekai, Vampires and Gender Bender.

And finally to have enough coins for now 2 pre-orders next Tuesday I got New Game! vol 7.

Pre-ordered the Mugen Train CE from Zavvi.

Will cancel if it comes to light that it's an inferior release or if someone else get's it for cheaper. But Zavvi is nice that it doesn't charge me upfront so I have that option without much hassel.
