Madman's Eromanga Sensei Volume 2 blu-ray finally arrived today. I know, everyone here is an AOA snob, but both parts of the Madman blu-ray cost the same as one part of the AOA blu-ray, and I'm all about saving money on anime when I can.

And the latest Yu-Gi-Oh! Decks collection arrived; Legendary Hero Decks this time.

Surprise. I now have Fate/Stay Night [Heaven's Feel] I. presage flower from Aniplex of Japan. This is the limited edition Blu-ray release with Amazon Exclusive posters included. Price-wise it was the same price as the United Publication US version (if you went for the 'standard' limited edition Blu-ray it would be around £7 less) and considering I pretty much focus on subs than dubs these days I figured I may as well just get the Japanese sets instead.

The Japanese release and the US release are mostly the same with some minor changes:
  • The US release has an English dub and English Cast Interviews.
  • The Japanese release has a bonus DVD disc with extra on-disc featurettes, and also those shop exclusive items such as the fabric posters.
Long story short, I am giving Fate the 'Madoka' treatment where I pick up the main series from Aniplex US while I acquire the films (Heaven's Feel trilogy only at this point) from Aniplex JP since they have English subs.

A Popsocket (Yay???)

It also comes with the Season Pass and bonus digital items so that's pretty neat I would say.

I'm mainly here for the Zombies mode since there's four maps on release with the first Ultimis map in 8 years, a return to Alcatraz for the Primis group as well as a new Chaos Story which should really give Jason Blundell and Craig Houston a lot more freedom with the story.

From what I've played of the Beta, Multiplayer was a step in the right direction feeling more traditional and yet changing certain elements enough to make it a unique experience.

Blackout is my first proper experience with the battle royale genre and considering they've had less than a year to make it, I think they've done a great job so far. Blackout is a great way to celebrate the last 10 years with references across the past four games.

If Treyarch delivers on the community support they've shown the past few months this could easily be the best game cycle in the series. So yeah I'm hyped.
I get the feeling that COD's version of Battle Royale could make quite an impact. I don't play those games but from what I've seen the COD BR mode is basically PUBG with slick controls and better presentation. I'd be surprised if it doesn't become the 2nd biggest Battle Royale game over the next 6 months.

Yeah this is my first experience with a battle royale game (aside from five minutes of Fortnite). Having played the Beta it really is so well refined that you wouldn't think it's only been in development for less than a year. I've seen plenty of PUBG players declaring how they'll move to Blackout which would likely bring over much of their audience. The price point is the only barrier really.
 
My jaw drops every time I see your dbs haul, where does it all come from!
Haha.

I use proxy for all my DB merch, the proxy I use don't charge fees for AmazonJP or Rakuten (and everyweek they have a 10% sale on Rakuten items.) So all I have to pay is domestic delivery fees but on AmazonJP most are free (like that SSGSS Goku was only 867yen free domestic delivery). Since SAL small packet max weight is 2kg I tend to fill it up as much as I can (this shipment came to 1.91kg!)

This maybe of some interest to you over on Kanzenshuu I made a DBS merch thread that I've maintained and post regular info:
Dragon Ball Super (Series & Movie) related Merchandise and Figures (OP Updated 06/10/18). • Kanzenshuu

It's really bizarre because even some Japanese folks are even reliant on me for info lol.
