What did you RECEIVE today? PHOTOS EDITION!


Magical Girl
Upgrades! I can finally retire my old VHS tapes of El Hazard, and I've never seen the sequel.

I only owned the start of Orguss on DVD thanks to that weird print-on-demand Imaginasian release where you got the box with the first volume and then the later volumes just came in paper sleeves. It went out of print in a few months, so I only had the first two volumes.


How a Realist Hero Bought Too Much Anime
AUKN Staff
January Week 2 haul.

Four packages arrived between Monday and today.


First up we have Judgment and Lost Judgment for PlayStation 5. I have Judgment for PS4 but I didn't start it due to the backlog so I'm jumping straight to the PS5 version instead. These are spin-offs of the Ryu ga Gotoku franchise from SEGA.

Both games were picked up via Base as they were quite cheap at £20 ish each.




Next is more manga from Amazon as they were priced reasonably well and were in stock for delivery sooner than later. GANTZ Omnibus 2 from Dark Horse as well as How Heavy Are the Dumbbells You Lift? Volumes 5 & 6 and Yuuna and the Haunted Hot Springs Volumes 15 & 16. Hoping to try and get GANTZ up-to-date.


Today, El-Hazard: The Magnificent World arrived from Anime Limited in collector's packaging. Nice to have more isekai anime as per usual. You can view more photos/specs on my blog.


And also arrived today are more games from Base. Trying to get more games that were released years ago picked up sooner than later, so I went ahead and grabbed Kotodama: The 7 Mysteries of Fujisawa from PQube and Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm Trilogy from Bandai Namco.


School Idol
Had the Tiger & Bunny Blu-ray Box arrive today.
This JP set includes the entire first season on 4 BDs with both the English dub and subtitles included as well. 2 Extra BDs are for the special features. 6 CDs are also included with the audio dramas and a large booklet with a lot of character art (that also has the sponsorships in the show as well).

It should be noted that a compact version was recently announced for much cheaper than list price for this one (though I got this for cheaper than that one as that version made this one drop heavily in price) but that appears to be 2 discs instead of 4 and is missing both the English dub and subtitles so it wasn't to my interest because of that.



Completely Average High School Student
The second half of the Fruits Basket, Funimation x Funko Pop competition I won a few months back arrived today, this includes a Funko Pop of Kyo with his cat form and art cards signed by the Japanese cast, except these are much, much bigger than I expected, I'll have to get some frames for these as they're beautiful.
