Otaku Collection 2018: April Update | MOAR JAPANESE GAME IMPORTS feat. two other titles

So April has been a rather weird month for me. Not only have I been going through some personal stuff (interview & driving test), I also received a bit more funds than the usual and decided to go on another PlayStation 3 spree.

Unboxing [JP]: Strider Hiryu (PS3)

Arriving on the same day as Gundam Side Stories, this is actually the misplaced item. However, after getting in contact with customer services they decided to let me keep it (probably wasn't cost effective for either of us). Regardless this is a pretty good game from what I have heard so here we go.

Unboxing [UK]: ERASED - Part 2: Collector's Edition (BD/DVD)

It's been 8 months since Anime Limited first released the first half of ERASED and now the second half finally arrives. Is it worth the wait?

There will be spoilers for the events of what has happened throughout all of the series so be warned.

Overview [JP]: Mobile Suit Gundam Extreme Vs. (PS3)

Time for a throwback item (aka overview). Back in October 2014 I acquired my first non-Musou Gundam game on eBay and I didn't unbox it for my blog at the time (it wasn't until I received Initial D Extreme Stage that I decided to include games to the mix).

Here's an overview of the original release of Extreme Versus!

Unboxing [JP]: Mobile Suit Gundam Side Stories (PS3)

My recent haul from Solaris Japan once again hits some unfortunate situations. My copy of Another Century's Episode R got mixed up with a different item (Capcom's Strider remake) but I got Gundam Side Stories at least correctly.

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.
