Death Scythe
Otaku Collection Haul for February 2019
Is there even enough to qualify as a "haul"?
Also I'm going to switch around on how I feel about anime these days. Many years ago I used to focus so much on the US releases and the collector's editions, heck I even refused to own pre-owned titles for games. Nowadays I have relaxed these ideals so I'm currently figuring out what to do with certain titles in order to speed up the pace and catch up, which is why I started getting Manga Entertainment releases in recent months. Funimation introducing the Essentials line-up does help quite a bit as well as they look nice for the shelf.
You're still being a bit of a snob, start buying Australian releases as well.

I have one more import coming soon in the form of Super Robot Wars V, so that's going to be an exciting addition considering it's a cross-over anime game. This Friday will also see a big variety so stay tuned for that!

In addition, I have done another round of updates for a number of my earlier unboxings! Due to relocation reasons, I brought back a whole bunch of items to my location, which includes a majority of the anime and games that I had picked up since October 2018. The first batch of remasters from this haul is as follows:
In addition, I will also be adding some catalog unboxings from Blogger onto the WordPress version with new photos and any updated info/specs since its previous inclusion. The titles that will be added to the WP version are Claymore, Gundam Reconguista in G, Hyouka Part 1, Lord Marksman and Vanadis, Love Live! Sunshine!!, Night is Short Walk on Girl, No Game No Life Zero, and Re: ZERO -Starting Life in Another World- Part 1. Plus, a number of Japanese imports from the PlayStation collection will also be added in due time.

Oho, I wasn't aware the SE was coming with a box and in two amarays with revresible covers. For some reason I kind of thought of a monster 8-disc multibox case-only release. (Something like MVM's Shana S1 DVDs.) I guess that settles then the choice between French or UK edition then~
