It's that time of year again, my age has levelled up by 1. This is most of my Birthday haul. There were some last minute changes which resulted in a few being pushed back but so there's no anime today. What we do get is more books, games and Asian Cinema films.
Starting off with OVERLORD light novel volumes 7 & 8 in hardcover format from Yen Press. These books are most of what Season 3 of the anime had covered. Novel 9 was out of stock so I couldn't include it.
Next we have ARIFURETA: From Commonplace to World's Strongest light novel volume 7 and GIGANT manga volume 1 from Seven Seas. The former keeps the ARIFURETA collection going and hoping to get another volume later before the second season airs in January (tentative date atm). The latter is finally acquired as Amazon banned the first volume as part of their stance on fanservice manga.
For video games, we have Final Fantasy VIII Remastered for PlayStation 4 from Square Enix. Really surprised this game got a physical release and I finally decided to include it for my collection (I do own the other FF games on PS4 in physical form but those are all steelbooks so you can see why I hesitated lol). One more video game is planned for the Birthday haul but has been delayed for various circumstances.
For Asian Cinema, we have two more additions. First up we have Vincent Kok & Stephen Chow's Forbidden City Cop from distributor 88 Films. That slipcase feels so good, but once again KUNG FU BOB nails the artwork.
Last but not actually the last and least, we have Kinji Fukasaku and Takashi Miike's Graveyard of Honor films in a collection from distributor Arrow. This is the standard edition (or second print edition as some may call it) which is similar to The Ring Collection where you have the exact same packaging but without the booklet. The Arrow card included was A Tale of Two Sisters.
