Here's a random thought that I didn't notice until now. Blue Exorcist: Kyoto Saga and Occultic;Nine have the exact same sort of contents with one big difference - the price.

For six episodes, an English dub, a deluxe booklet, and postcards - Blue Exorcist: Kyoto Saga is SRP $74.98 per volume compared to Occultic;Nine at SRP $99.98 per volume.

In other words:
-- SRP total (and occasional UP1 price) --
Blue Exorcist: Kyoto Saga - $149.96 [~£117]
Occultic;Nine - $199.96 [~£155]

-- Rightstuf total (doesn't cover Postage nor VAT tax)--
Blue Exorcist: Kyoto Saga - $119.96 [~£94]
Occultic;Nine - $159.96 [~£125]

For another comparison, Fate/Grand Order -First Order- is SRP $89.98 for the exact same contents that a Kizumonogatari film has with the difference being the fact that F/GO has an English dub. Usually when a title has an English dub the price also changes but in this case it doesn't.

I just thought that this should be brought up as it's a curious thought.

That's a pretty big difference in price, considering the more expensive show has been rated lower.

Did they ever actually show Koyomimonogatari in a way we could access it? Not too much longer until I can be put out of my misery and see the missing parts of the series now :s

Considering it was exclusive to a Japanese app, I believe streaming is out of the question.

Good to see we are getting a little more notice for Movie 3 on Kizu, felt like movie 2 was radio silence then announced a few weeks before it released.

Just a heads up for the collector's out there, the currency rate is currently at £1 = $1.35 which effectively means the importing fees are, at the time being, much cheaper than they had been for a while.

Just to give an example, ordering Kizumonogatari Part 3 on UP1US will be £66 and Sword Art Online: Ordinal Scale on UP1US will be £69.

I find it odd that they are using Ocean to produce the dub as well. It will definitely sound different to the other ones.

Huh, so Kiznaiver is a Crunchyroll show? Wonder if Anime Limited still have it, I quite liked the show (or rather I liked the characters an awful lot) and would really like to own it but not sure I'd pay that asking price.
