Unboxing [UK]: Blade of the Immortal - Limited Edition Steelbook (Blu-ray)

Takashi Miike's 100th directorial film made its way to the UK thanks to Arrow Films, and they put out a really cool steelbook to go along with it. I went for it of course since I've been curious about this adaptation of the classic manga series.

Unboxing [JP]: OneChanbara Z: Kagura with NoNoNo! (PS3) [NSFW]

Been many months since I last imported and the rate improved so I went onto another import spree. Next we have our very first CERO Z title for the collection, thanks to one of D3 Publisher's well-known IPs. As prices were going up I acquired a pre-owned copy instead.

To play it safe the cover is semi not safe for work.

Unboxing [JP]: Gal*Gun - Standard Edition (PS3)

Been many months since I last imported and the rate improved so I went onto another import spree. First up we have a rare out of print game due to the publisher going bankrupt and as such I acquired a pre-owned copy.

UPDATE: My copy of the game unfortunately is faulty, but I've played the Japanese demo prior so I know how the game plays/works at least for the info below.

Industry News: UK Anime Release Schedule for April 2018

Since I've posted a lot about the North American releases I figured it was about time I try and tackle the UK releases. The issue with the UK side is the delays that can occur at any moment, so I'm going to work on providing a monthly list as much as I can.

This April 2018 release slate for the UK features Fate/Grand Order -First Order-, My Hero Academia Season 2 and Pokemon the Movie: I Choose You on Blu-ray!

Otaku Collection 2018: February/March Update | More Anime Imports & More PlayStation 3 Games

It's been almost two years since I last had an update where I merged the months together for one single update. In this instance I only acquired two titles for the month of February and felt it wasn't enough to make a monthly update for it so here we are with an update on both February & March.
