Aprils figures:

Manga: £97.23 for 14 volumes
Anime: £47.98 for 2 DB
CD: £10.99
Crunchyroll: £8.99

April's total is £165.19 bringing this years total so far to £655.54

It seems like the "no spending of £100 a month" rule has gone out the window Laughing

Quite a heavy month for me. It was my birthday so that's my excuse. I also went to Newcastle which inevitably means figures.

Anyway....

Grand total: £348.00. Yay, a round number!

Anime total: £32.99 - Not much coming out which I wanted. All I bought was a couple of 2nd hand things and Arakawa Under The Bridge Season 1 when it was MVM's deal of the week.

Manga total: £177.55 - Fairly standard.

Manhwa total: £7.99 - I got quite a few free volumes due to getting Amazon vouchers from a survey site.

Novel total: £20.65 - Finally bit the bullet and ordered the 9th and 10th Haruhi novels in hardback.

Figures/merch total: £75.75 - This would've been higher except I persuaded my friends to buy me some for my birthday.

Artbook total: £8.64 - Also bit the bullet on the 2nd FMA artbook before the price shoots up. I was lucky to get the first one cheap a while back.

Live action total: £7.00 - Picked up a couple of movies second hand.

Misc - Renewing ANN subscription for another year: £18.46.

So, both Blood- and st_owly re-upped and I get to/must interact with them for another year. Just one more and we have a movie title.*

I suppose unshakeable self confidence is (usually) a good thing.

True, true. Although personally, I'm too busy being dazzled by my own awesomeness to even notice whether I have unshakable self-confidence or not.

May's just about done. Guess I'll count up my spendings for this month:

Dragon Ball Complete TV Series and Movies = $110.43
Love, Chunibyo and Other Delusions DVD set = $33.48
Maoyu DVD set = $33.48
Lupin III: Bye, Bye Lady Liberty = $22.20
Lupin III: The Hemingway Papers = $22.20
Initial D: First Stage = $31.79
Replacement third box set for Dragon Ball Evil or Very Mad = $21.90

May 2014 Total: $275.48
YTD Total: $1102.01
Spending Around This Time Last Year: $1368.94

Wonder how long it is before I hit $300+ monthly spending for anime again since I'm over my April burnout. Laughing

EDIT: Adjusted my original spending since I can't get one of the discs in my Dragon Ball box set to play without skipping past a scene since it came scratched up. Even getting it resurfaced at a local game store didn't help matters much. So winded up getting a replacement set in new condition from Amazon.

It'd be a light month if I didn't insist on shoring up Sakura Trick's numbers.

Anime: $83.64
GotAnime: $12
Manga: $13.48

May Total: $109.12
May YOY: -$576.91

YTD Total: $800.69
YTD YOY: -$703.06

It feels like cheating comparing a month I hardly bought anything with a month I bought a big TV and a PS3, but even leaving them off I spent $65.95 less(which works out to roughly me buying games last year) and $192.10 below last year's YTD. As progress, I'll take it.
