SAL small packet only goes to 2kg. If you're over that there is only parcel. That's a good bit more expensive.
Perfect. That's probably it. Would be nice if they listed the weights of items in the cart/checkout but I guess I'll go check the weights of everything and keep that in mind in future. Thanks.

Edit: While the weight was only 1700g, I guess the packaging would have taken it over 2kg. Sure enough I removed one item and shipping dropped to 1900 yen.

Oh for crying out loud, now they won't accept debit cards at the checkout? Will they even know the difference if I have a Visa debit?

Edit 2: Sod it, I've applied for a new credit card. I didn't think I'd be able to get one given that my credit rating is so far through the floor it might as well be in Japan, but hey, it'll help me rebuild it I guess.

Do you not have PayPal? I’ve only used PayPal on Mandarake. Sites can seem to tell the difference between cards through the long number. I’ve seen it as I’ve typed in my card number and the signs for the different cards the site takes grey out.

This is bugging me a lot now, perhaps somebody knows:

What show is this from? (At 2:00 of the video)
Solved mystery: The falling girl was Psychic School War's, cheers to Faust for finding that one out.
What show is this at 2:04 with the falling girl?

I think this may be the same girl as well:

Does somebody have both the Code Geass Funimation LE as well as the AL Movie Part 1 and could tell me, if they have the same height?
(i.e. would like to know if it would fit into the storage box that would come with the third movie and if I could frankenstein my Funi LE + steelbook into it.)

I'd say my Funi LE is a couple of mm taller, kinda hard to tell as I had to reglue the top of my Funi LE and both my sets are a little squint (well, the Funi LE is more than a little squint tbh). How much of an issue that would be for getting them in the box, I dunno.

Does anyone have an toranoana account or would like to try registering one, just in case to verify that I am not a complete moron? (I mean I can read what it says, but it just doesn't work whatsoever)

First textfield = email address
Second = password (letter + numbers and - . _ allowed)
Checkbox: I am over 18 years old
orange botton: Agree to terms and agreements and register

Now after that, there apparently should be some email for verification, but I am not getting this damned email whatsoever. Whatever am I doing wrong? .___.

Hi

I heard that the earlier printings of the Australian Serial Experiments Lain blu-ray had subtitles out of synch.

Are the subtitles in synch in the UK blu-ray release?

Thanks!

The UK Blu-ray release uses the US Funimation master compared to the Australian release. No problems with subs.

Would anyone happen to know what the picture quality of Discotek's US NieA_7 Blu-rays are like? Can't seem to find any screencaps online or even anyone who's reviewed it at all.

Totally not anime this one but quick question. I was looking at getting a new TV and fobbing the current one off on my sister (cos I'm nice), but its not easy now to find a new TV that isn't 4K. So if your TV is 4K, do any streaming services automatically switch to 4K and stream a massive download instead of a regular one? BBC were talking about doing it at one point and so were Netflix. And do they seem okay with non-4K shows?

They are really good for non 4k shows, only certain content is in 4k for streaming services, you'll usually see something on the title of something on netflix with "ultra HD 4k" which, if you've got good internet, will automatically stream 4k.

I've kept away from the Beeb for a while, so I cant be sure if they've used 4k yet

You have to pay extra for 4K Netflix anyway so you're not going to accidentally get it! Most sites allow you to choose the quality and few have much actual 4K content (I don't use the BBC so can't comment on that).

We have a 4K TV and even though most content isn't natively so, it manages decently enough.
