Unboxing [US]: Nyaruko: Crawling With Love - Season 2: Premium Edition (Blu-ray)

So after many years now I have finally picked up a long box NIS America set, but this will be the last one I'll grab from those types however as the stock for most of them have gone away, and this particular title will soon go out of print.


Here's an unboxing for the Premium Edition of the show's second season.

Industry News: Funimation's April 2017 Line-Up

A week's delay on this, the blame is primarily due to Funi delisting their line-up the moment it came up plus their site revamped so only US owners could get access to it.

Unboxing [JP]: The iDOLM@STER Platinum Stars - Standard Edition (PS4)

A new game imported from Japan. This one had a slight delay due to customs but it's finally here.

Unboxing [UK]: Berserk (1997) - Complete Series: Collector's Edition (Blu-ray)

Berserk returns to the UK with a special Blu-ray release! Stock is already low for this set but I picked it up during the MVM 20% off Blu-ray sale.


Unboxing [UK]: Seraph of the End - Season One Part Two: Collector's Edition (Blu-ray)

Not long after receiving the second half of Arslan, Amazon put on a lightning deal for Seraph Part 2 from £44.99 to £29.67 so I picked it up, and thus catching up with the Universal anime releases.


The DVD version of this collector's edition is exactly the same, but I have the Blu-ray version for obvious reasons.

Unboxing [UK]: The Heroic Legend of Arslan - Series 1 Part 2: Collector's Edition (Blu-ray)

I waited a few days to let the other sets get through but I picked up the second half of the series! Thankfully the price was still £23.99 so this is a neat bargain.


The DVD version of this collector's edition is exactly the same, but I have the Blu-ray version for obvious reasons.

Unboxing [UK]: Love Live! School Idol Project - Season 2: Limited Edition (Blu-ray)

That's right, I actually bought the series again. Only this time it's the UK MVM release. I wanted to make use of their 20% off Blu-ray sale so I bought both seasons for a reasonable price. Here's the second season of the idol franchise.

It took a while, but I finally got my hands on the first half of Arslan. The pricing wasn't right for a while until recently so I got it now!

Unboxing [UK]: Osamu Tezuka's Metropolis - Limited Edition Steelbook (BD/DVD)

This is a very special release that I honestly did not see coming at all, and I'm very happy to be able to watch this film on Blu-ray. It's also my very first Osamu Tezuka title for the collection.

Unboxing [JP]: Utamonogatari - Limited Edition DVD Version (CD)

I acquired a couple CDs from Japan and I figured I'll add them to my blog. The last but not the least is a special compilation of songs featured in the Monogatari franchise.

Unboxing [JP]: The Garden of Sinners - Theatrical [Kara no Kyoukai] Music Collection (CD)

I acquired a couple CDs from Japan and I figured I'll add them to my blog. The second one is a re-release from Aniplex of Japan for the Kara no Kyoukai movie series composed by Yuki Kajiura.

Unboxing [JP]: Susumu Hirasawa - Ash Crow (CD)

I acquired a couple CDs from Japan and I figured I'll add them to my blog. The first one is from composer Susumu Hirasawa with his latest album, focused solely on a compilation of new and old songs from the Berserk franchise.

Unboxing [UK]: Blue Exorcist - Definitive Edition Part 1 & 2 (Blu-ray)

I went ahead and picked up a couple titles from the MVM 20% off Blu-ray sale that's been going on. Two of them were from the Blue Exorcist franchise. I personally wasn't up for the Aniplex sets so this edition was a reasonable way to acquire the series.

Unboxing [US]: Nisekoi: False Love - Volume 4 (Blu-ray)

Back in December was yet another Rightstuf Xmas sale, however due to the UK's rate against the dollar being very poor I couldn't go after any of the sets at a reasonable price. But what caught me off guard was the surprising appearance of a bunch of Aniplex Blu-rays going on sale. I was hoping for Monogatari to turn up but it sadly didn't, but it did get the opportunity to finish off the first season of Nisekoi!

Here's the fourth and final volume for the first season:
