blu-ray.com might be of use to you, might require an account as i don't actually know if you can see EAN/UPC stuff outside of the edit movie (yes it's movie on tv shows too) page option on every listing
blu-ray.com (same for anisearch) both are user UIs, neither has an API that would offer a query functionality of returning the title when sending the UPC/EAN.
I'm looking for either a public API that can do that (which books thankfully have, but anime unfortunately isn't as lucky) or some sort of parsable data source (spreadsheet, xml, etc.) which have the titles mapped to the UPC/EANs.
So far I only know of Stiivun's list that's public.

i'm making my way through Godzilla S.P at the minute and keep hearing a bit of the same soundtrack piece being used again and again, i've never really watched any godzilla movies, is it using something from those? it's a sorta tuba or trumpet sounding track

They are fun movies. Shin-Godzilla is my personal favorite
for the japanese stuff i actually have Shin-Godzilla but i was gonna try and import the funimation copy because the onscreen text subs started annoying me after 10 minutes with the manga release and them flashing up so quick along side spoken subs

my only real exposure is through the WB movies, think the only one i've not seen is the newest one

Tbh the dub for Shin Godzilla is the best way to go due to how much it will fill the screen. At least for first watch

This might have been asked and discussed before but are there any good/recommend forwarding companies for store.shopping.yahoo.co.jp?

Does the Standard version of Combatants Will Be Dispatched! (UK) come with a slipcover?
Who is stated as distributor on the back? Crunchyroll Ltd. or Manga Entertainment Ltd.?

Most if not all of the UK releases from Crunchyroll UK with have no slipcovers since Funimation UK dropped them before merging into Crunchyroll.

Not about anime, but I thought this was the best place.

eBay question: I just received a message from eBay saying that I'm returning an item to the seller, but I'm not! What I think happened is that the system didn't update when I picked it up, so it thinks it's still at the Argos store and now the "it's not been picked up, so send it back" automated system has kicked in.
The FAQ on the return section says I can cancel this, but I can't seem to find it. Can anyone help me?

I've also messaged the seller, maybe they can do something there end?
