So as you may or may not have noticed, I haven't posted much in a while on here. Well there is a reason for that and I'll be explaining it as briefly as possible.

Rightstuf were selling some more damaged stock of various collector's sets and one of them was for GATE. I watched the first half and enjoyed it so I decided to wait for the Blu-ray release to finish the rest of the series. It took this long to finally pick it up, and in case you're wondering the damage is pretty minor so it was a solid deal in the end.

We have now entered the 2019 year for releases with Crunchyroll and Funimation. A few popular titles make their appearances in this release slate as well as the return of the live-action Death Note films.

So I decided to switch from ordering the Aniplex of America version to the Aniplex of Japan version! Both sets are pretty much identical with a couple differences but regardless I made the decision to go after the Japanese releases for the Heaven's Feel movie trilogy this time around.
This is the Amazon Exclusive add-on version of the release.

Today we have another Japanese import, this time for the PlayStation Vita. It's been a while since I acquired an import copy for this device and considering it's going to be discontinued in 2019 I wanted to make sure I got all of the games that I wanted before it was too late.

One of the oldest surviving Aniplex of America sets and probably the most expensive one is still around even after these past few years. I like Fate so I am insane enough to pick up this release.

After 15 months I can finally make proper progress with my hauls now that I have proper income to live on. Of course most of it will go towards bills and food but there's enough to keep these hauls going.
September's update focuses more on the PlayStation 4 collection as well as a few tidbits of everything, plus I picked up some manga as well.

Sentai Filmworks have already begun to reveal their plans for the year of 2019. That also means they will no longer be releasing titles on DVD (hence the introduction of SD Blu-ray releases).

Crunchyroll and Funimation have been pretty bonkers with how they select their titles for the limited edition treatment. Surprisingly this one got chosen while a number of bigger titles did not. It's a controversial-ish series but it's a guilty pleasure to watch.
The artwork presented in this boxset is considered Not Safe For Work so reader discretion is advised.
Unboxing [US]: And You Thought There is Never a Girl Online? - Complete Series: Limited Edition (BD/DVD)
Universal took their time bringing this series out (which then led to MVM distributing it instead), however it was one of those titles that Funimation provided a limited edition release for. I liked the show a lot so I opted for the Funimation version.

A new instalment to the No Game No Life anime series has finally appeared, and surprisingly it even sold out before its release (the second Sentai LE to do so since Monster Musume). My copy arrived a day after I moved out but I requested it to be sent to my new flat so here we are.

We have now reached the end of the year for the Crunchyroll and Funimation slate. Once again their line-up gets revealed ahead of schedule, but at least we can now move on from waiting on what else was in store from the 2013 Sunrise package deal now that the last batch are being released in this slate.

Today I went in HMV and acquired another Anime Limited release. This is a unique anime and is pretty controversial, but nevertheless it's an important one to the animation industry.

Starting September 2018 I have officially moved into a new flat and will soon begin work. That means the pacing of the anime hauls will hopefully improve over time. Today we have an unboxing for two Masaaki Yuasa anime films I picked up from HMV; here is the second of the two!
