This is my first anime purchase (and first ANN post) in several months. I noticed Sentai Filmworks was having a big sale on their site so I ordered Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions! -Heart Throb- Premium Box Set for the ridiculous price of $47.99 which is about 1/3 of MSRP. I mainly got it for completion sake since I own the premium box of season one.

A solid day at the comic shop, but a frustrating one because I now have gaps! I hate gaps in the collection, argggh! But looking over things, they really got some of this stuff in freakishly early, I must say.

Aoharu x Machine Gun 5
Demon Prince of Momochi House 9
Magi 25
My Hero Academia 9
My Lesbian Experience with Loneliness
So Cute, It Hurts!! 14
Ultraman 2,3
World Trigger 16
Yona of the Dawn 7


And two novels, Legend of the Galactic Heroes 4 and [/b]Re: Zero 4[/b]

Ultraman is new, I had to kill some time at the library and went for something I didn't think I'd get into, but alas, I got into it. And my two gaps are now at Aoharu and My Hero Academia. How convenient there is a Yen sale, I can remedy that (and get the last Fruits Basket too). I still definitely need the comic shop though, the inventory can be a bit uneven (I swear Diamond must just flat out skip them some months, and they've been bad with getting Kodansha lately), but the sales are just too good to pass up!

In a bit of an awkward error, found that the King of Bandit Jing set I ordered came with individual volumes of DearS stored in the Bandit Jing box set. To rectify this, the seller fully refunded me and allowed me to keep the DearS volumes as a freebie.

Still wanting King of Bandit Jing though, I've snagged up individual volumes of the series via E-Bay. Cost me about $10 more than my original purchase for the box set. But may as well collect what I have been wanting to get.

Adding more to my anime binging, just snagged up the latest Blu-Ray re-release of Blue Exorcist Season 1 via Rightstuf. Planning to get the movie for it next after I ensure some recent anime shipments got out without hassle.

Had some gaps for Yen I needed to fill in. I typically assume the comic shop may not get a certain vol in maybe 2-3 months after its street date. And I needed to add one for free shipping, thus Horimiya (because I am most impatient for that one)

Akame ga Kill 10
Aohuaru X Machinegun 4
Fruits Basket 12
Horimiya 8
Liselotte and Witch's Forest 4

And in order to qualify for the discount, I added Hyouka part I to a Criterion Blu ray French film... or I added the film to get the anime... one of those.

I just have to keep an eye out for part 2 so I don't get stuck with set 1 without a set 2 like I did with Robotics;Notes.

I like the covers and I want to finish the set in a reasonable fashion but I only have the option of buying the complete SAVE or paying twice as much as that for set 2. Apparently, Funimation's new distributor doesn't allow clearance prices anymore. Anyone else think that's a little odd or am I stuck in "days of collector's past" again?
