Taka, Sorry there got caught up watching that new Macbeth movie.
Odd that since I enjoy spending my money a good deal. Can't remember how I first came across them, but I would guess they were the first result when I went looking on Amazon.
It would also have to do with collectors and money really. Normally most fans with a bit of cash would buy that hard cover even if they owned the separate editions already because "They are all together in one place and looks nicer", so that drives sales up a bit more to get a bit more money in the pocket. For collectors it's nicer to have a hardback than a paperback for obvious reasons, and getting a first printing is likely easier there too since you only need the 1 as opposed to having to find 3 instead.
Not to show off. This is all I ordered this year so far.
I didn't open up the boxes until today. Just took a photo of it. I didn't think the Akame ga Kill Collector's Edition was small. I will crack it open to see the booklet and whether it live up or not to the Japanese guidebook. I'm thinking it's half of the original edition now that I learn a 2nd Collector's Edition was revealed. I was like "no!" Don't tempt me now!

Someday I’ll be gone To somewhere that we belong And God has never played his role 'Cause I’m the one who saves my soul It’s a perfect world we’re longing for
Your collection is enormous. I remember running out of places to put stuff. Didn't use DVD racks. Kind of went the shoebox route. I should have did DVD rack. It will be like a tiny fortress in the bedroom or living room.
Dream: Will post a little later what the next voted anime will be that I will watch and review.

Dream: Next anime up to cover will be Dance in the Vampire Bund. Suppose a short anime will do for now following Chobits.

Dream: Concluding things at episode 2 with Vampire Bund for the night. Hoping to get back to Basquatch tomorrow, as long as I'm not swamped with anything.

Dream: Geez, it's really quiet. No activity in the forums since I posted my review from yesterday.

Taka: I'll email the receipts. The best anime and manga of 2019 will be extended to Wed. I don't get time off for Mon because of community service. Please vote if you haven't yet. Thank you!

Dream: Hmmmm... looks like the version of Vampire Bund I'm seeing on Funi's YouTube channel's an edited version. A couple minutes of episode 2 were clearly removed with Mina in nothing but underwear battling human assassins. Then again, recall there was a good...

Dream: ...deal of controversy with the series a decade earlier thanks to the seemingly underaged nudity of Mina while in her younger form.

Dream: Not sure if I should be donning the nostalgia goggles or not giving a damn. Looks like the original Digimon Adventure series is getting a reboot airing starting in the Spring season.
Jan 21, 2020 3:21:13 GMT
Taka: I'll watch it if there's nothing catching my eye in Spring. winter 2020 was a weak anime season for me.
Jan 22, 2020 18:29:46 GMT
Dream: Wouldn't say it's all bad for me. Have a few titles holding my interest. Just it typically doesn't have as many major titles of note that would hold me over.
Jan 22, 2020 23:54:44 GMT
Dream: Done with Vampire Bund. Will be working on a review of it before I hop into the next Funi series. Hoping to get it up either tonight or tomorrow, depending on how lengthy my thoughts get.
