An Alice from SAO:Alicization figure. It is a SEGA prize model like my other figurine, so already fairly cheap and it was on sale at the place I brought it.

Grav's venture into Video Games continues with two different hauls!


From the NIS America EU store, I decided to acquire The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III when it was on offer because that franchise just doesn't want to go down in price and stay in stock for very long. In addition, I also acquired Utawarerumono Zan which is a Musou spin-off/reimagining of the second game in the franchise.

Then on eBay, I ordered The 25th Ward: The Silver Case and Onechanbara ZII Chaos. These two have been on my list for as long as I can remember and are slowly going up in price/value so I figured that I would grab them now when I can especially considering I paid at least £13 for each.

At the time of this post, the eBay titles have shipped already while both Arrow Films/Third Window Films Asian Cinema haul and the NISA EU haul have yet to be fulfilled.

Grav's venture into Asian Cinema continues again!


A few weeks ago I picked up two Jackie Chan films that were distributed by 88 Films. Well, today I just got word that the rest of Jackie Chan's nicely designed releases are selling out very fast to the point where two of them are already reprinted in standard edition sets. Luckily one of those was Crime Story so I had that sorted but the other was The Protector (威龍猛探) so I got that on order through eBay. In addition, to play it safe, I decided to also order Miracles (奇蹟) which actually went down in price and the upcoming Heart of Dragon (龍的心) release. I won't be bothering with the first four Jackie Chan releases from 88 Films that were in a historical grey-style packaging since consistency is basically broken for that already and the quality isn't as strong as these more recent additions.

Found a copy of AL's Durarara collectors edition on ebay, brand new + still sealed for £35. I snapped it up to upgrade my standard edition. I did not expect this to become one of my favorite shows when I got it in a Mystery box hah and the CE has been difficult to find.

As long as you don't sell the standard edition, you're good.
That's a good point. There was something up with the discs and AL had to send replacements discs out. We got to keep the originals that time though so have both.

I have read about that during my search and intend to do just that (or maybe swap the discs). On that topic I'm surprised they didn't fix the Durarara X2 discs considering the known issues with the sound.

My 20 year old Gevalia coffee maker finally gave up the ghost, so I had to order a replacement... Sorry, but this is actually something even more important than buying anime, lol.

Akira Kurosawa Samurai Collection
Regular (but probably limited) Blu-ray​

HMV held a BFI sale recently, presumably in celebration of BFI's Japan season coming up and also the recent Veterans Day bank holiday weekend, and they had a bunch of titles on offer. Now I was considering getting more Ozu titles but I figured they will get re-released with the 4K restorations later so I decided to focus on the Akira Kurosawa Samurai Collection that was available for £24.99. The collection includes Seven Samurai, Throne of Blood, The Hidden Fortress, Yojimbo and Sanjuro. Both BFI and Criterion have ups and downs on their releases for these films so I figured I'll stick to the UK one in the meantime, plus once it arrives I can finally watch Seven Samurai for the first time.
