FLCL - from the AOL deal of the day - haven't seen this in a long long time, didn't like it as much as most seem to at the time, so thought it was high time for a rewatch
Log Horizon S1P1 - finally tracked down a reasonally priced copy, why did this one get so expensive?!
School Live & Ping Pong - bought from CapybaraRfriend on this site's marketplace (thx!) - can't wait to rewatch Ping Pong, a modern classic (looks up when it aired, wait 8 years ago!??!? gulp)



Pre-ordered/ordered from UP1:

Irregular at Magic High School: Reminiscence Arc (Blu-ray)
Lord El-Melloi II’s Case Files [Rail Zeppelin] Grace note - Special (Blu-ray)

Ordered a few Aniplex of America titles that went on sale this morning, on the first day of Rightstuf's Black Friday sale:

March Comes in Like a Lion Part 1
March Comes in Like a Lion Part 2
March Comes in Like a Lion Part 3
March Comes in Like a Lion Part 4

These are normally $129.98 each, but they were on sale for only $69.98 - way less than I was expecting!

Have been in Glasgow for a couple of days.

Suppose a Kid boonies etc DVD from Fopp £20. Decided not to wait for the sales and there's a post strike.

Isekai Quartet 1 (S2 is the same price) Blu-ray from HMV £12.99.

And the icing on the cake

Toilet-Bound Hanako-Kun Blu-ray from HMV £14.25.

Sadly, after going round several shops, I couldn't find the manga I wanted or Girls und Panzer das film 3.

Then there’s Black Friday next week. I’m hoping the following goes on sale:

  • Fallen Angels 4K
  • Kong - Skull Island 4K

  • Heat 4K
  • Star Wars - The Skywalker Saga 4K
  • Any (bigger) manga volumes I’m missing, such as Attack on Titan or Berserk
So yeah, the following 2 months are going to be stacked, lol.
I'm not at 4K yet but as I'm watching A Better Tomorrow right now (because you mentioned it!), I see improvements in the spoken language to subtitles that could be improved. And I suppose with the clarity.
It would be nice if you could let us know if it's a lot better to watch than my 2006? Steelbook.
I like the sequel more than the first film.

I have the remastered in 4K HK blu-ray, which was already an improvement over the old HK blu-ray. I recommend that one, since the one I mentioned in my post is the upcoming 4K UHD coming in Japan. It won’t be English friendly, but I‘m looking forward to the PQ.
Thank for getting me to watch it again. It's been several years.
Next is Outrage Beyond and The Killer.
Btw I have a copy of the Killer at my Mum's and she put it on and enjoyed it.
She's 80. 🤕
