Heart of Dragon from 88Films.
It just came back in stock and I expect they’ll be on their second pressings soon sans booklet and slipcover so wanted a copy sooner rather than later.

I decided to raid the humble store as there's a spring sale going on (which was added on to my discount for being a humble choice subscriber) and nabbed the following 4 games (plus added content for all of them)

Azur Lane: Crosswave Complete Deluxe Edition
Fairy Fencer F: Advent Dark Force Complete Deluxe Set
Super Neptunia RPG - Complete Deluxe Set Bundle
CyberDimension Neptunia: 4 Goddesses Online Deluxe Bundle (which surprisingly, cost less then the game on its own)

Breaking the bank with an OS Explorer Map for the Salisbury and Stonehenge area. Mainly for the digital code so I can download the map data onto my phone/tablet before heading for walks/rides in that area.

I've got 4 (5 if you include Hadrians Wall, but I got that on holiday and is 300 miles away, so a bit useless unless I go back). I've got Meon Valley, Winchester, Test Valley and the New Forest, so the 2 immediately to the South and East of yours.
I don't know when the last time you used the OS app (if you have at all), but they changed the settings so you can only see about 1sq mile of the downloaded map max, if you zoom out any further you get a much less detailed road map style map, which makes it a bit useless. I only use the app to plot routes (to check distances) and that's fiddly enough and then I take the physical one with me when walking.

I've noticed that with the app as well, slightly annoying when I plan a rough route (mainly at a guess of the distance)and can't zoom out to view the whole route. (Currently have the Test Valley one downloaded, useful as a guide to location of some of the footpaths when they might be hidden from view due to various reasons.

Although I must stop looking at the app as every time I do I come up with new ideas for future walks

Yeah I do that every so often. I have the week off and I'm thinking of one to do. Something nice and remote now we're allowed to drive somewhere to exercise!
One I've had planned for a while is Danebury to Woolbury and back which is something I'm sure our Iron Age ancestors did once upon a time, but the routes I've plotted are a little too long for me just now, so need to think of something a little shorter.

I wonder if the carpark at Danebury will be reopened from tomorrow, as there are a couple circular(ish) routes I wouldn't mind doing, including part of one I did years ago at school.

I couldn't find anything online, closed or open. Looking at Google maps there is a gate, so I'm guessing it was shut over the last few weeks.
There is a gate before the bottom car parking area, so with the relaxation of the rules I would imagine HCC would unlock the gate to allow vehicle access but lock up the toilets. Even with the gate closed there should still be access for walkers for the right of way.

Good area to explore, lots of open space. (Brings back memories of when I did my GCSEs and had a 2-3 hour gap between exams at jumping on my moped to get some last minute peaceful relaxation before the afternoon exam)

After a long absence I bought some South-Korean releases again, these five were ordered at Amazon UK;




And the below two classics were bought from an eBay seller as these are OOP. Just went with the plain editions.

Grav's venture into Asian Cinema continues again!



Flavour of Green Tea and Rice
Regular Blu-ray with First Print Booklet

Funeral Parade of Roses
First Print Blu-ray​

I decided to pick up these two very coming releases from BFI (they're out this Monday). Flavours of Green Tea and Rice is the latest Ozu release from both BFI and Criterion so the transfer should be top-notch. Meanwhile, Funeral Parade of Roses has my interest because the UK Blu-ray release is apparently the best way to go in terms of authoring - rather than a single disc like the Cinelicious Pics release was, it's now on 2 discs with the avant-garde short films on the second disc (which is only available for the first 3000 units).

Not today, but this week actually. Received yesterday from a Dutch web shop; Hae-jeok: Ba-da-ro gan san-jeok (Pirates) from Seok-hoon Lee, and Al-too-bi: Riteon too beiseu (Soar Into the Sun) from Dong-won Kim and the Of Flesh and Blood boxset containing four films from Hirokazu Koreeda directly from BFI.




And today. First two from Amazon market place sellers; Myeong-wang-song (Pluto) from Shin Su-won and Higanjima (Higanjima: Escape From Vampire Island) from Tae-gyun Kim and the newly released Gli specialisti (The Specialists) from Sergio Corbucci directly through Amazon.




And a lot of other Asian movies are underway, maybe some will arrive later this week.
