What did you RECEIVE today? PHOTOS EDITION!

A Place Furter Than and the Quints movie arrived. The APFTTU set is lovely, definitely one of the best I've seen in a while. The Quints movie also includes the art card from the U.S. release which was nice seeing as it didn't for S2. Seeing as S2 didn't get a slipcover either, it stands out on the shelf now when they're all lined up together, isn't the end of the world but mildly bothering 😅

A Place Further Than the Universe (CE) (BD) and The Quintessential Quintuplets Movie (BD)

Duuuude, you always have some lovely imports! I've been wanting that Devilman crybaby set for ages - where'd you get it from and dare I ask how much that set you back?
Arrived from Amazon jp today - a second hand copy of the Air Blu ray box re-release

This reminds me, I finally opened my copy of the mvm release that I had bought whenever it was released a few years back, only to discover the first disc's subs are completely out of whack. It seems waaaay to late to ask mvm now and that release seems to be oop now as well🤦‍♂️. Oh well, I had imported the US version well before that so I've got a backup (unless that has errors as well!).
 
That's really bad to hear of yet another UK release with botched subtitles. I only watch anime in Japanese with subtitles, so that is a major concern to me. I also have a US copy of Air I have yet to watch, just picked it about a year ago, so I skipped getting the MVM release. Hopefully the subtitles are OK on that release.

Heh that makes two of us. I do believe mvm did replacements for this back at release but I completely missed this at the time - they're usually very good with their customer service. My own bloody fault ultimately for not checking earlier...
 
Got some nice releases today. Instead of getting the OOP (and expensive) UK steelbook of DBS - Broly, I went for the French release and the standard UK release, will swap the discs. The steelbook even has the title on the spine facing the correct way. Then I got the Godzilla - Minus One 4K UHD Deluxe, the box is nicely detailed. Finally there‘s Iya na Kao 3, which has been one of the hardest releases to track down for me, to the point of even questioning of it existing.

Thank you! - I bought Devilman Crybaby directly from Amazon JP, it does have English subtitles as well. It cost around £160 (which actually cheap considering what I’ve paid for other releases, lol), including shipping and Danish VAT (25%). It’s also available from Mandarake, but with import fees and handling fees from DHL, it would only be a bit cheaper, but I went for brand-new instead.
 
Last week I received two smaller orders: A Sister's All You Need (WowHD) & a great deal on the entire Master Keaton series (all sealed for about £50 in total from a private seller).

Today my order from Archonia arrived. Although they no longer import US Blu Rays they still have some old stock left. So together with a bunch of UK releases I also snatched some US Blu Rays.

Yeah, at release they did do replacements discs as I got mine. Though it was a while ago might be worth messaging them just in case.

I'll tag them here as well @MVM
Good idea, you don't ask you don't get after all, so no harm checking. I'll message them directly as well.

Awesome, thanks for the info. That is very pricey indeed.... BUT....given the rarity, it actually having English subs 🥳, and that beautiful CE set (it's digipak if I remember correctly), and yes on comparison just the pricing of any Aniplex release which has alternative cheaper physical editions also available, I think I will eventually convince myself to get this one. Didn't realize it was still in print for it to be on Amazon, that does take the pain out of ordering imports as well...
 
Received today from mandarake and Amazon uk -

Evangelion rebuilds

The crow 4k steelbook

Sound euphonium 5th anniversary audio dramas (these can be found subtitled on YouTube for anyone wanting to fill out kumiko’s second year).

Oooh I'm liking those rebuild sets - if they're not sealed, any chance you could share some photos of the contents plezz? I want some CEs for those 3 but holding out hope AL will one day develop and release some UK editions.

Hadn't registered the audio dramas of Sound Euphonium - thanks for the info and will check them out on YouTube. On another note, which editions of season 2 would people recommend importing? Another one I'm really hopeful for an eventual AL release given the increased publicity from season 3, but may need to import (if I can find any) were that not to happen.

Theyre all digipacks in full slips with a booklet but the third one comes with the soundtrack too while the second comes with a film excerpt in a stand. There may be different versions of each cos they vary in thickness but they go for about 600 yen on mandarake.
Eupho s2 has always been a ball ache to get on disc as I’m sure you know, the only English friendly version is the 2 volume North American pony canyon release. The Japanese release goes for about £100 on Amazon jp, and mandarake usually has it for 18000 yen (about £90) but no English subtitles unfortunately.

Thanks for the info and photos - those are lovely sets indeed and with one soundtrack to boot. I didn't realize that Eupho 2's only English release was the US one... Well, there goes that dream of owning a physical edition😞
