I first heard about I Want to Eat Your Pancreas at MCM Scotland 2018 and now that the Blu Ray is out, I guess its time to watch it. Since that alone was less than £20, I decided to buy the Love Hina DVD as well for free shipping on Amazon - a series I much prefer the manga for, but still find very fun whichever format its in.

In today's episode of what did Grav receive this time around...


I received an out of print Japanese film! That's right, I finally acquired Confessions from director Tetsuya Nakashima. The film is distributed by Third Window Films and discontinued in early 2019. This release is the reprinted version with the spine matching the current releases.

In today's episode of what did Grav receive this time around...


Two more out of print Japanese films have arrived! The first is Kamikaze Girls from director Tetsuya Nakashima (Confessions, Memories of Matsuko) and music composed by Yoko Kanno (Cowboy Bebop, Ghost in the Shell: SAC). The film is distributed by Third Window Films and discontinued in early 2019. This release is the first print version with the spine matching the older releases. This film was actually bought through CeX Online for £5 + Postage and it arrived in pretty solid condition.

The second is Tokyo Sonata from director Kiyoshi Kurosawa (Pulse/Kairo). The film is distributed by Eureka Entertainment as part of their Masters of Cinema branding. This film was labeled as discontinued which makes sense considering its #03 on the MoC line-up lol. This film was bought through Base for £5.99.

I got a good bunch in recent months, but as I have a bit of free time and this just arrived today, after a wait 9 days short of the 3 month and it's small enough to actually fit the camera frame:



It is quite the weird shaped box. (They obviously are trying for some CD collection style, but I never ever saw such a CD box to begin with.) The single 1 episode volumes (1 episode per volume!) are packaged like thick like Digipack CDs with a slipcover and contain a BD and a CD each. The box is just black on the two big faces, but has some nice art on the three smaller faces. (Why'd they heck waste the top side with the biggest art display potential?)
Even more weird, turning the box 90° around and it's exactly BD height. That does mean that I could put it next to everything else with no shape distortions, if I turn it over.I wonder if this was planned. (But having the 12 volumes piles stack onto each other, I wonder if they may get damaged...) Turned 90° the black face makes itself look kinda even more wasted...

The Anime feels like half is missing, but I did like that abstract/surreal Monogatari-ish Shaft style a lot, and as I am reading the Manga and also have the LNs on the reading pile, so should work out for the rewatch. (Or even half of a first watch, considering how much was corrected.)

So that's one off the AoA-doesn't-care-about-it-screw-AUS-DVD-only list.

Got my Aria guidebook in today, making that everything received from the Kickstarter after checks notes 2 and a half years!



Not gonna lie, as much as a logistical nightmare as it would've been, I wish the individual numbers of the lithograph and book more closely matched that of my backer number: 10. My book is #1297.

Oh! I didn't even realize the Aria books were numbered - just checked and I got #599. I received the lithograph so long ago I'd have to go look at it to see what number it was... ok, so my lithograph is #1312 out of 1600. I was Backer #35.
