The annual Christmas sales thread returns once again! Prepare to save up as there'll be tons of anime and vinyl on discount. Anime Limited and MVM Entertainment both will provide their traditional layout of mystery boxes and early birds.
This thread is here to help you manage what to expect and guide you throughout the sale line-up.
A few quick pieces of advice:
  1. Save a lot of money. Minimum £400+. For collector's sets, some may not return at that discounted price until the end of next year or go out of print entirely so be cautious.​
  2. Some titles will appear in Mystery Boxes and won't be part of the current sale. Don't panic if you miss out, as many individuals will sell them over on AUKN's marketplace and/or eBay.​
  3. To acquire all the Early Bird Blu-rays, you will want to save at least £400+ (Anime Limited's Unlimited membership will help with the 10% off discount).​
  4. For Anime Limited's store, your order won't dispatch until all items are in stock as part of their new rules on dispatches. Therefore we recommend you keep your pre-orders separate from your in stock orders.​

Anime Limited:

Discounts:
  • 10% discount - First order if you sign up to the E-Mail newsletter
  • 10% discount - Any order (not inc. Buy 1 Get 1 Free) for Anime (Un)Limited members
  • 15% discount - First order for Anime (Un)Limited members
Other Notes:​
  • In 2022 there were a number of postal strikes which impacted delivery performance. While there's no word about that happening again this year, do note that deliveries will take longer than usual as the days get closer to Christmas.​
  • Some packages may shift into early January if you order at the last minute, so if you're planning to order a gift to your waifu, family or fellow fan, best to sort that out at the first half of the sale period.​
  • Don't forget that Early Bird prices have increased due to rising costs, so £59.99 SRP TV sets are now £69.99 and £34.99 SRP Film sets are now £39.99.​
  • During the Showcase video, they have taken into feedback on how 2022's early bird line-up has been and will only focus on titles that will be released sooner than later.​
Status Keys: SRP = Suggested Retail Price / EB = Early Bird price / 10% = Anime (Un)limited 10% discount / ??? = Extra discount for first order only

Note: Until the EBs are fully revealed, the SRP, EB and discounts are estimated based on how I've seen previous AL sets over the past 10 years.

Curious to see what could appear in the Early Bird slate.

Potential candidates are Great Pretender Deluxe Edition, a Mobile Suit Gundam Origin I-VI collection and Makoto Shinkai Film Collection (latter two are what's planned in France).

Would be cool to see surprise retro licenses like what they did a few years back with Boogiepop Phantom and El-Hazard: Magnificent World.
 
Would be nice to see them FINALLY release a standard edition of Angelic Layer but guessing they've probably lost the license by now...

Edit. Just did a quick check and the CE is actually still available on their site even though it was 'last chance to buy' last Xmas 🤷‍♂️
 
Anime Limited's Christmas Showcase was revealed at 5pm UK time today.


The Early Bird line-up was also revealed. Due to how most of the 2022 EBs got delayed numerous times, Anime Limited have decided to only focus on the titles that are expected to be shipped out before Christmas, so instead of 11 we have 7. There are also no new reveals here as these lot were amongst the MCM October 2023 announced titles.

SRP are estimates on my part but a rough idea on how much you'll want to spend to get all 7 during the sale.​

All of these will use Sentai's discs with most of them being the most updated ones (for instance 3 discs instead of 4 for Akame ga Kill! & Parasyte).

Also to make a note - despite an English dub produced throughout this year, it looks like Anime Limited's release for Kaiji will be subtitled only since the Sentai dub has yet to be released on Blu-ray in the US.

Thinking I’ll pass on any EBs this time around and stick to the mystery boxes and any additional sales items. Curious as to what they’ll put in the boxes, and whether my luck is any better this year with duplicates.
 
Since I didn't bother with the original releases I'll pick up most of these.

Kids on the Slope is a maybe as I just picked up Sentai's re-release a few months ago. Granted it was an easy target for AL but then again I have no clue if they'll use the old discs or the new one.

Kaiji is the only one that I'm torn on, not due to the show itself but rather the fact that Anime Limited may have jumped the gun on this one. It was mentioned Sentai authored them as 1080i30 which would mean the quality won't be spot-on. There's also the English dub which is done for Season 1 but considering how fast the turnout is here, it's probably subtitled only.
 
I am wary of the fomo, but the addition of lightning deals will be something to keep an eye, at least generally, with these only apparently lasting for 2 hours each and having deeper discounts than elsewhere in the sale.

Maybe not great for those outside the UK especially.
 
@NormanicGrav You have my curiosity peaked with the possibility of Macross Plus. This has always been a hard anime for me to grasps in terms of distribution (likely due to how limited the series was to obtain during the legal battles).

Also, thank you for creating this thread every year!!!

I bought the Robotech Collectors Edition last year from Funimation, so I <believe> that the PLUS is not inclusive in that (I'm looking over the contents now and I'm about 99% sure) and I'll need to buy it if I see it. If anyone see's that I'm wrong, please holler at me so I don't buy something I already have from the CE.

I'm curious what will be released that they have not mentioned. I'm used to holding off my spending and waiting all year for these sales (RightStuf Crunchyroll, Sentai, Anime Limited, and MVM) but I hesitate with Crunchyroll and I have bought almost all I desire from Sentai over the years (I think I saw 1 I'll buy ... maybe). That said, AL and MVM are my go-to's this year for my fix. If anyone has suggestions for other places, let me know and thank you in advance. Looking forward to this sale very very much!!

This would be me... being outside the UK. I usually waited as long as I could so I can make 1 massive order because of the shipping cost + usage of the discount is a 1-time thing. I am intrigued by the lightning deal days but also dreading the possibility of seeing something I like and the pressure to order or lose it and miss my ability for a massive order.
 
Where do people stand on the prices of these (mostly) re-releases? £70 srp? I can understand that for new releases but these are rescues. Essentially the same as MVM did with Witchblade, Trinity Blood and Burst Angel but they only charged £60 srp (obviously they'll never go for those prices).

I think the biggest question is Food Wars.
You can still quite easily pick up the Animatsu release that had a rigid box, poster,art cards and IMO superior artwork for as little as £12!

With the Gundam Build Fighters situation I can't help but think AL or over pricing and expecting sales based on their name 🤔

It hurts to say but of the 3 anime companies in the UK in 2023 when it comes to putting out consistent quality releases AL are 3rd place and its not even close.

for the 12 episode or so series it will be, wouldn't rule out it being more for the 24/25/26 series here, though theres not much to go off for those recently (G Gundam is 69.99 per part but would come to more for the whole thing and only 1 box between 2 parts).

Alot of it will be, do you value the set design, Shirobako looks nice and if you don't own it, why not go for that (probably the easiest recommendation here). Kaiji is tricky though, you can get the whole thing (all 52 episodes) for $30 right now from the Sentai black friday sale. The 2 rigid boxes, booklets (or whatever is in season 2) and upwards of £70 total won't change the fact it's almost certainly the same on the discs as that release. Its a weird calculation to make.

I’ve got all of those Sentai rescues, first time around from MVM and Animatsu, while I imported The Flowers of Evil BD and Shirobako from the US years ago. Not interested in Kaiji. Frankly an artbox, 20 odd pages of bound character art, a couple of postcards and a foldout poster for 20 quid more than a standard don’t ring my bell any more. Might double dip on Kids on the Slope to have a spare.

I‘m not excited by any of this. I tell you what did excite me… Amazon got my pre-order of Picard Season 1-3 Blu-ray to me Monday on the day of release, and I’m not even a Prime member. 30 hours of TV plus loads of on-disc extras for £70, albeit as 9 discs in a DVD Amaray style brick and card slipcase. I was just checking the discs for issues and I just wound up watching the final episode for kicks.

Speaking of day of release. The final Evangelion film is supposed to be released yesterday. I had the Standard Blu pre-ordered day one. Not a peep from All the Anime. I shouldn’t be disappointed. Whenever an independent company sells out, it sacrifices something. In the case of Manga Entertainment, they sacrificed their entire UK existence. I guess if all Anime Limited loses is QC and customer service, we should consider ourselves lucky.
 
I think the prices are a difficult one as I’ll be more than happy to pay whatever for Shirobako given it’s the whole series in a nice package. However, it is harder to justify Kids on the Slope which has comparably very little in the way of extras. I always want a CE for anything I’m going to buy as I limit myself to my absolute favourites anyway, so these releases appeal more to me than the original animatsu ones did (and therefore didn’t buy) but they still need the content to match. When you’ve gotten to the point of store exclusive posters it definitely feels like a stretch and I appreciate they might not have a lot in the way of materials but even so.

But I will say that being a ‘rescue’ shouldn’t factor into it, it’s not like they’ll have paid less to license it and it’s in a completely different form to previously. I suppose the ones with prior releases likely won’t need to be BBFC’d again, but otherwise I don’t see where or why they should lower the SRP.

And while we’re complaining about rereleases let’s keep in mind that some of these titles came out as far back as 2013 (Kids on the Slope) and the Animatsu stuff ranges between 2016-18, there is a whole new crowd of anime fans rolled in since then or grown up enough to have the time and money to buy their favourite shows. Regulars here might already own these shows, but I’d wager there’s younger or less devoted fans who are excited about some of these.
