What did you BUY today?

I think I just managed to order a PS5. :oops: Delivery won't be until the end of the month though, so I'm sure that will be a stress-free couple of weeks...

It only took three months of checking Hotstock notifications and sitting in online store queues for an hour at a time, over and over. The days when I could just go on Amazon and click Buy for a new console feel like a dim and distant memory.

I renewed my disabled railcard :) also I can't remember if I said on here but I ordered a new MacBook Pro at the end of last month and it's arrived now and I've got it all set up with all the data from my previous main computer :) I'm really enjoying it it's very fast and I'm gonna treat it right and turn it off most nights before bed so it will last longer :)

Wow that is lovely! May I ask where you got it? I'm looking for something nice to make a journal with.


I got it on Amazon, there are 4 cover options, I think they all have the same range of colour pages inside but not sure, it's generally butterfly themed, also it does say leather-bound so I am sorry if you have moral objections to that, I didn't compare prices anywhere else tbf, but it looked like it was worth what I paid for it on Amazon (around £15) there's also a video on the product page where someone shows you what it looks like and that it has a magnetic closer to keep the pages from falling out. It is lovely from what I can tell, thankyou for saying so! Happy journaling to you! :)

Now a days people are lazy is the first thing and getting cheap for the items by their expectation, they satisfied that. Only for this purpose they go for online purchase. Even i recently i bought a new pizza dough roller[1] and fire red cheats gba online from online store for my wife because the old one is broken and according to her cookware tends to burn quickly at high or medium flame, especially copper and iron. It is because the heavy metal base absorbs heat faster and remains hot for longer. Hence, it is essential to buy cookware that you can scrub and wash easily so ig it makes sense so yea

Went for a variety of items for the past day or two:

Anime:

ON-GAKU: Our Sound Blu-ray CE
Anime Limited's latest early bird title. Originally scheduled for October, but is now due for November instead. It is surprising that it's a shop exclusive, but that's probably down to its nicheness.

Asian Cinema:

Riki-Oh: The Story of Ricky DE
88 Films bringing more Category III Hong Kong films to the UK with Riki-Oh getting re-released with a better transfer and new packaging. It's scheduled a week earlier than estimated and 88 had stock issues so I decided to get it ordered through Amazon just in case it gets awol.

Robotrix DE
Another Category III Hong Kong film coming to the UK, now uncut for the first time for UK viewers. While Riki-Oh was Category III for violence, this one is more down to sex and apparently it's a James Bond spoof of sorts. Like Riki-Oh, stock issues got in the way so I decided to order it through Amazon.

Manga:

Destiny Lovers Vol. 5, 6 & 7
This one has been a mess to collect for more than the other have had in a while, and that's down to stock issues with Volumes 5 & 7. They were released this past year so it's not going out of print, but its annoying when the final 8th volume is due later this year and these lot are sold out. Blackwells apparently had stock so I ordered them over there and pricing-wise was better than Amazon for Volume 6 at least.

Prison School Omnibus Vol. 12, 13 & 14
The plan was to get the series completed before the Summer was over and I sort of managed to achieve it. Honestly I did not expect myself to get all of Prison School this quickly but thankfully I was able to get the series collected sooner than later. All three remaining volumes were ordered through Amazon.

Video Game:

Conception PLUS: Maidens of the Twelve Stars
The Conception franchise has been on my radar for years, and since Spike Chunsoft brought the remake/remaster of the first game to the west I decided to wait until the price was right before picking it up.

Persona 3: Dancing in Moonlight
(see below)

Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight
Considering how poorly received the dancing spin-offs have done for Atlus, they're starting to go out of print at this point though that's mainly centred towards Persona 5's version because many prefer the soundtrack list to that game over Persona 3 (in other words, you can still get Persona 3's version without issue). Originally I was going to acquire the Japanese version but CeX had stock for a decent price so I figured why not. For Persona 3's version, I ordered it new from Base which will take a few additional working days to ship out.
