Didn't know where to post this but it looks like HMV will be selling online soon. Their page just lists stuff for pre-order at the moment but it does say site is under development.

Only a billion years late to the party!

Hope it works out and they take anime seriously on it. More competition will only be good for the rest of us.

Me or HMV? 😂
Hahaha definitely HMV

They've been so mismanaged over the years. Read a case study where they were told to start selling digital music by a marketing company they hired to help them strategise long before anyone else was doing. Apple music didn't even exist yet. And the CEO at the time threw them out saying no one will ever want to stream music ppl want to hold physical CDs and records. Did not go well for them.

Hmv have sold online for years, and was doing so until their latest financial crisis.
But I feel like they never did it well. I was a purehmv member and I still never bought from them online. Either items werent appearing online or prices weren't competitive. Maybe things improved over time but I was already well away from their online stuff by then.

Hopefully they use this reboot to create a good online user experience. Given how poor and complacent amazon have become (and how indifferent people seem to be towards zavvi) I feel like the market there for a good online retailer of film and music which holds customer service in high regard.

HMV were good with Arrow Video releases as they charged on dispatch and sets usually turned up on the day of release, plus the points. I hope to use them again on the new website too.

That's good to know. Tbh for a long time now I wouldn't even think to check hmv when buying online even though I'd always check in store when in town. Wouldn't surprise me if a sizable chuck of potential customers were the same.

If they advertise this relaunch properly they could add a good level of disruption to the online market.

Mob Psycho 100 and Haven't You Heard? I'm Sakamoto BDs are £19.99 in HMV.

Something else that comes in two parts is £9.99 per part on BD, but I can't remember what it's called and I've got bored scrolling through Amazon to find it. It's yellow anyway.

Edit: It was Occultic;Nine. Well there you go.
