I recently revamped the layout of the blog so it'll look slightly different than the usual. In addition, I have updated the 2020 solicitation slates from January to July 2020 so that the artworks are finalised, any titles that were postponed or delayed are mentioned, and links to Amazon are available (all Amazon links are affiliated).

August 2020 Solicitations for US Anime Home Video Releases
More stuff here. New branding for the blog, as Sentai has dropped the Filmworks part of their name, and I'll be adding Discotek.

And a quick update on all things Grav hauls:
  • So United Publications decided to process three separate orders into one, so expect Owarimonogatari, Quintessential Quintuplets and That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 1 Part 2 to arrive in the first half of next week (Monday at the earliest).
  • Multiple delays due to COVID, so The Rising of the Shield Hero Season 1 Part 1 is due 8th June and Part 2 is due 29th June. RADIANT Season 1 Part 2 is due 8th June also.
  • Revolutionary Girl Utena was ordered during its early bird offering. I went for the £115 bundle so the plan is to have all three parts and the shop exclusive box and the very limited artbook & rings as one big unboxing post when it arrives in mid-July.
  • Love Live! Sunshine!! Season 2 was moved to 15th June a while back. No news on whether it gets delayed again.
  • Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans Season 1 and PROMARE were also ordered during their early birds, still scheduled for 15th June and 29th June respectively.
  • Birthday 2020 haul in June is being worked on, so far 1 Jackie Chan is confirmed.

Otaku Collection Haul for June 2020
More stuff here. Every anime, Asian film, light novel and video game that I had picked up during the month of June 2020.

And a quick update on all things Grav hauls:
  • Revolutionary Girl Utena is apparently still on-track to dispatch within the next seven days.
  • No reported delays yet for Black Clover Season 1, Magic Knight Rayearth Part 1, Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans Season 1, and The Rising of the Shield Hero Season 1 Part 2.
  • I plan to leave my flat at the end of the month or early next month, which means the scenery of the unboxing photos will change. Therefore August titles Mobile Suit Gundam 00 the Movie: A Wakening of the Trailblazer and Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans Season 2 will be different from the others.
