Unboxing [UK]: Animerama: A Thousand & One Nights and Cleopatra - Limited Edition (Blu-ray) [NSFW]

Last year we saw the release of Belladonna of Sadness making its way to the UK on Blu-ray, restored after being lost for many years. This year the remaining films in the Animerama trilogy are back, restored and also available on Blu-ray for the first time from the folks at Third Window Films.

This release is noted as a limited edition with 2000 units available. It is also worth noting that due to the artwork presented this is not safe for work so bare that in mind.

Unboxing [UK]: Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust - Collector's Edition (BD/DVD)

The first of many titles from Anime Ltd's batch of titles released throughout May & June are slowly cropping up. Of course this particular title was released early for others I ordered it at the last second so I had to wait a bit longer.

Unboxing [UK]: Chaos;Child - Limited Edition (PS4 + Visual Novel)

Another visual novel joins the collection after quite sometime. This time I managed to find a copy of the limited edition artbook release in GAME for a bargain of £9.99. This set was fairly rarer than the other titles due to not that many retailers stocking it (I would say it's GAME exclusive but the others ended up on other retailers in the end).
