Pointless story time: Yesterday UP1 dispatched my latest batch of anime that would have been 3 different orders but merged into one (RIP wallet). Usually, my flat doesn't get parcels on weekends, and today I wake up hearing a random phone noise and so I decide to check my flat phone just in case. Turns out it was my parcel and I'm like "lolwut".



First, we have more Monogatari. Now the original plan was to acquire some Monogatari sets earlier in the year but I didn't have enough funds to tackle Aniplex so it had to be pushed back to this quarter. I want to catch up and finish the Monogatari collection before Aniplex of Japan & America releases a Blu-ray Box of Final Season (Tsuki, Owari, Koyomi, Zoku Owari).

Therefore I now have Owarimonogatari Volumes 1 & 2. Interesting that my Tsuki set didn't have a Proof of Purchase card but these two do. You can find more photos and specs on my blog - Volume 1 / Volume 2.


Next, we have the latest big release from Funimation before Shield Hero came out with The Quintessential Quintuplets. I love this show and it pains me that Tezuka Productions didn't amend the animation flaws in a number of scenes for the Blu-ray. Props to Funimation for having pout scenes during the main menu of the Blu-ray discs. Despite being a TBS title, the Blu-ray discs are Regions A & B compatible which is nice. You can find more photos and specs on my blog.


Finally, we have That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 1 Part 2 set with its limited edition packaging. Manga Entertainment didn't bring the LE over to the UK so I decided to import it (and then if I wanted consistency I can just get the UK Part 2 later when it goes on sale). The booklet does have rips inside the pages. Like Part 1, Regions A, B, 1, 2 & 4 compatible. You can find more photos and specs on my blog.

I'm glad these sets arrived now because June's haul would be too much lol.

After searching again it seems they don't have all of it though which is a pity.
At the moment UP1 should only be selling Bakemonogatari, Nisemonogatari, Nekomonogatari Black, Monogatari series: Second Season (BD-Box), Kizumonogatari Parts 1-3, Tsukimonogatari, Owarimonogatari Vols. 1-3, Koyomimonogatari and Zoku Owarimonogatari.

They only have the MVM release for Bake listed when I searched.

The Samurai Champloo steelbook is so nice! And I didnt realise it was coming with some art cards so that's a nice extra. I've never seen Quintessential Quintuplets so no idea if the shikishi is a good one to get but she looks like the moody one from the box cover.

Some will be jealous you got Nino :)

Kinda jealous too seeing all these Quintessential Quintuplets sets posted , as UP1 still hasn’t shipped my copy yet, as it’s being held until Kyo Kara Maoh season 3 arrives so they can ship it together.

Had to get it from CDJapan as it was sold out on the square enix store but because I did I got a first release bonus memo pad.
