The anime thread sequel (it's still not as good as the Manga though),

    I would love to get more anime figures, but the cost of the good ones, combined with the fact I don't have anywhere to display them that won't get me mocked by family:p and I already have two expensive plastic habits (one being discs, the other being Warhammer/tabletop gaming*).

    Today anime-on-line deals are
    Drifters Season 1. DVD £15 Blu-ray £20
    Sereph of the End, Part 1. DVD £10 Blu-ray £15
    Sereph of the End, Part 2. DVD £10 Blu-ray £15
    Heroic legend of Arslan Series 1 Part 1 DVD £10 Blu-ray £15
    Heroic legend of Arslan Series 1 Part 2 DVD £10 Blu-ray £15


    *I realised how much I'd spent on that this year, and almost fainted:p (I've bought 3 of the boxed games, plus a load of models, and the Hellboy kickstarter with expansion)

    Ordered Manquia from today's ATA offering.

    Of the rest, I have Angelic Layer (original DVD release and I know I'm already getting this BD release for Christmas), Anthem of the Heart, Silent Voice and the Free set (which came in one of last years bundles). Other than Free (which I haven''t seen) the rest were very good. The other things I'm not interested in.

    I don’t have many, may be 3 or 4 proper ones. Only 2 on display on my desk, Elizabeth from Seven Deadly Sins and Ironman Mk1 suit. They are both relatively small, this one is big.

    Weird because randomly I just wanted a figurine of Saber from Fate night whilst searching I can’t see one that I am 100% happy with and saw the Nier figure and before I know it, I ordered it. It’ll be a surprise when it arrives in a year’a time.

    Pretty much the same here, that Silent Voice is a steal for anyone who hasn't got it.



    I must admit I've been tempted by a few of the Marvel ones (I think my Brother in law would love one of the better iron man ones), and I know exactly what you mean about Saber.
    Most of the characters I'd like to get a figure of either don't have one that I like at an affordable price, or have too much fan service.

    Which Nier one did you go for?

    It’s a straight up figurine from the game.

    Ditto.

    Given the high number I already have, I'm expecting a few dups. ^^

    Me too ... And I'm expecting many duplicates (in fact I did spend sometime looking at their catalogue thinking is this a good idea ... But the remembered I had a refund for something this morning which would more than cover this so thought well ... *** It)

    Is it generally 1 season or like an entire complete boxset of a show (if it’s finished)?

    You will receive 5 titles for £39.99 and on the mailing list email they are worth over £250 based on the RRP. :)

    You need to be fast now, as 1 pack has sold out.

    Before 5 employees including the boss got to pick a title. By having 3 sets most, if not all the company may get a pick.

    All the Blu-ray sets have gone now.

    And non of the title in these has been offered in the previous 11 days.
