Unboxing [UK]: Akira - Collector's Edition 2016 Re-Release (BD/DVD)

Akira! One of the first anime films I had ever seen. I already owned the Manga UK DVD that was re-released around 2011/12-ish but at the time a Blu-ray version was already out there, and I've been meaning to own the HD version since. And just recently this release happened, so here it is.

Unboxing [US]: The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya - Complete Series: Collector's Edition (Blu-ray)

Here's a quick recap to explain this pickup - I pre-ordered the set on the day that the UK officially voted to leave the EU and I pre-paid early because I feared the rate would get worse down the line. And by the time the set had arrived, I was already back in Uni so it was only until now that I was able to open the set.

So here's a look at the recent collector's edition set from Funimation.

Unboxing [US]: Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions! Heart Throb - Complete Series: Collector's Edition (BD/DVD)

Well this took longer than I anticipated. The set shipped out weeks in advance from Rightstuf but due to international shipping it arrived later than everyone else including those who bought the set from United Publications. Oh well.
