Random Topic: Round-Up of Winter 2016's Legal Anime UK Streaming List

The Spring 2016 season is literally around the corner and announcements for that season are going up slowly (so far all confirmed titles are UK compatible which is excellent). The Winter 2016 season has been handled much better than usual so here's the list of titles that were made accessible for the UK (and also Ireland).

Anywho, here's the list of anime that Sentai Filmworks have scheduled for the month of July 2016.

Unboxing [UK]: Mobile Suit Gundam - Part 2: First Print Edition (Blu-ray)

I've been meaning to pick up the second half of Gundam '79 for a month now but I felt the price wasn't right just yet. Sadly the partial refund from the two Amazon packages in January never came (it's the import VAT, the refund part is randomised among various orders) so I couldn't afford both this and the Senran Kagura Estival Versus LE. I decided to put my focus on Gundam '79 especially as Anime Limited have announced their first print run, that contains a Collector's Booklet, is going out of print.

So here it is, the second half of Mobile Suit Gundam (also known as Gundam '79). Let's check it out.

Unboxing [US]: Fullmetal Alchemist: Conqueror of Shamballa - 2015 Re-Release (Blu-ray)

The other remaining Fullmetal Alchemist title that I needed is finally in my hands. This, alongside the Brotherhood series and its OVA collection, are expiring on March 31st 2016 in North America - effectively meaning it will go out of print. So here's a look at the new 2015 re-release of the film Conqueror of Shamballa.

Just to point out that the plot synopsis may contain spoilers to the original 2003 Fullmetal Alchemist series.

Otaku Collection 2016: January/February Update | Operation Funiplex and Various Special Sets

Welcome to the first 2016 instalment for my Otaku Collection series, where I cover all of the titles I had picked up over the course of each month. However for the next set of quarters I'll only be doing this once every two months instead of each month like I usually do. For this update I have picked up a select number of titles with the budget I had been given.

So here's the items I picked up during January and February 2016.

Unboxing [UK]: Genius Party & Genius Party Beyond - Collector's Edition (BD/DVD)

A surprise release from Anime Limited has appeared and I'm looking forward to checking out these short films included. This is the shop...
