The whole of the Moon. It's a pain trying to buy Australian releases since EZYDVD have stopped exporting, so I took a risk and bought it on eBay. This is from a UK-based seller called toysandfilms who is selling it for £156 shipped at the moment. Arrived well packaged in three days.

Seasons 1-4 have reversible covers, but weirdly season 5 has a splash image on the reverse instead.

Some of the Ultraman shows keep ping-ponging back and and forth between being available via Amazon UK, US , or neither, so I grabbed these while they were in stock. Considering the decades-long legal battle that kept most of the franchise from being licenced until recently, I'm still half-expecting them all to abruptly go OOP at some point.

Orange Road and City Hunter are pricy blind buys. I've seen a couple of City Hunter movies, but that's all.

November Haul #4

My holiday trip almost caused issues with parcels as they were originally going to arrive while I was away, but the Royal Mail postal strikes delayed them (which is great because one arrived on the day that I came back, but disappointing because the rest got delayed to next week so that's frustrating). That said, the other challenge was FedEx which I was able to change the delivery date but they took the approach of leaving my package on the doorstep so that was also pretty lucky for me to receive it not long after as the weather was decent enough.

Anywho, for this haul we have two parcels covering one from Anime Limited and another from Rightstuf.

First up we have Violet Evergarden the Movie, from Anime Limited in their collector's edition 4K Ultra HD & Blu-ray packaging. Not yet seen the film but it's a pretty nice deluxe package despite the lack of on-disc bonus features. You can view more photos & specs on my blog.


Now we have the D-D-D-DISCOTEK MEDIA haul!

So, the original plan was to focus on a small batch which I've ordered through United Publications, and that is on its way, but postal strikes have unfortunately delayed its arrival (it also didn't help that UP1 took a week longer than usual to get it shipped out).

Then the Rightstuf weekly sale focused on Discotek started which they normally do before each Black Friday/Holiday sale, and while their titles do appear in those sales they tend to be 'one day only' offers which are pointless for non-US folk due to high postage costs.

Anyway, I reviewed the line-up and noticed that if I order in a pretty high batch, I'll actually save money for once as it ends up being cheaper than United Publications, but I guess the currency exchange rate and UP1's current high costs made this logic possible. The cost of the haul was pretty high (no real surprise there) at about $377.80 (£320, which by the way at today's rate it would be £313 lol), but that's still about £30-40 cheaper than UP1 when I did the math.

This haul features 11 Discotek Blu-rays from Rightstuf and is focused on two factors - a few readily available anime that are video game adaptations from the 90s, and the rest are older releases that needed to be picked up (most are over 5 years old which I consider to be in the amber zone of stock status).

Babel II, 1992 OVA series from J.C. Staff and director Yoshihisa Matsumoto. Character designs reminded me of Saint Seiya (turns out they worked on the anime) but since it's an older Discotek release I picked it up.

Bludgeoning Angel Dokuro-chan, 2005-07 OVA series from Hal Film Maker and director Tsutomu Mizushima. Wanted to check out this randomly violent series for a while and here we are.

Tenjho Tenge, 2004 series from Madhouse and director Toshifumi Kawase. I own the manga for this series (which I have yet to properly read) but wanted to own the anime as well which Discotek put out on Blu-ray a few years back.

Darkstalkers OVA Collection, also known as Night Warriors: Darkstalkers' Revenge, 1997 OVA series from Madhouse and director Masashi Ikeda. Classic 90s Capcom anime and also a recent Discotek release since it got a Blu-ray upgrade.

Fatal Fury: The Motion Picture, 1994 film from Studio Comet and director Masami Ōbari. Classic 90s SNK anime. This was released after the two OVAs in Japan but got the Blu-ray treatment fairly early on by Discotek.

Fatal Fury: The OVA Collection, covering 1992's Fatal Fury: Legend of the Hungry Wolf by Hiroshi Fukutomi, and 1993's Fatal Fury 2: The New Battle by Kazuhiro Furuhashi, both by Studio Comet and NAS. These OVAs got the Blu-ray treatment fairly recently by Discotek as well.

Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie, 1994 anime film by Group TAC and director Gisaburō Sugii. Another 90s Capcom anime classic. This definitive release has all versions possible which is better than the KAZE UK Blu-ray that came first.

Haruka Nogizaka's Secret, 2008 series from Diomedéa (Studio Barcelona) and director Munenori Nawa. A niche series that I've spotted on Crunchyroll before Discotek eventually picked it up but wanted to check it out as it's been on Blu-ray for 5 years now.

Haruka Nogizaka's Secret: Purezza, 2009 series from Diomedéa (Studio Barcelona) and director Munenori Nawa. The second season to the series, can't get one without the other!

Sister Princess, 2001 series from Zexcs and directors Kiyotaka Ohata & Ikuji Inada. Older anime + harem + Discotek = yes. This one I could have sworn was on Crunchyroll before Discotek picked it up but either way early 2000s anime on Blu-ray is neat.

Sister Princess: RePure, 2002 series from Zexcs and director Tsubame Shimodaya. The second season to the harem anime series. Much like Haruka Nogizaka, gotta have all of it before it discontinues.

And for an added bonus, here's my Discotek Media collection now at a total of 51 Blu-rays. Here's a before & after comparison of the collection, featuring Taiga Kagami slowly getting crushed.

Bludgeoning Angel Dokuro-chan was one of the first anime I ever saw, remember coming across it randomly on YouTube and being enamoured at how outrageous it was, this and High School of the Dead definitely sent me down this dark path I'm at today, being an anime fan 😂 didn't realise it had a BD release, I'll have to get on that.
