It's news to me (which doesn't necessarily mean it's actually news) but I just found out they're finally releasing War in The Pocket on blu ray this October.

I was always annoyed it was only on dvd before.

Received my copy of Neon Genesis Evangelion: TV Animation Production Art Collection. The hardcover is nice and very necessary since the pages are so thin. As these are sketches and drafts, there is a lot of Japanese text on each page. Udon, thankfully, included English translations in the corners. I never picked up any of the Groundwork of Evangelion volumes, so it's nice to have a collection like this to go along with my Eva illustration books.

For anyone that's purchased the first part of Darling in the Franxx, is the print of the slip-cover and actual cover of your copy kinda bad? I bought a copy off of eBay from what looked like a reputable store and just got it delivered a little bit ago. The print looks bad, which at first made me think that I got a bootleg, but when I zoom in on the picture of the cover on Amazon’s listing ( https://www.amazon.c...i_EBzyDbCVF67JY - don’t know how to properly hyperlink it on phone), that pic’s cover actually looks about as low res as mine does. Though on the other hand it looks like that particular listing isn’t the North American version. The pics from Walmart and Rightstuff are definitely too low res to tell anything from them, Funimation’s pics are better but still not good enough to tell when zoomed in, and Best Buy has placeholder images up instead.

Blu ray bootlegs at least the ones I've encountered all show up as BDRs on my blu ray player and have black bottoms. DVDs if you have a computer drive check the region with a piece of software called "Ifoedit" http://www.ifoedit.com/ it's helped me in the pat (ran into a Darker than Black season 1 DVD bootleg last year).

 

The only bootleg slip cover I've seen looked faded for what it's worth.

Mine was purchased from Wal-Mart and Zero Two is definitely blurry and doesn't look very good up close.

I have that release, and mine looks that way, too. I think that Funi used a low-res image. It looks pretty amateur.

Anyone here getting the big 0 steelbook ? I’m wondering if I should keep my order or wait to see if it will drop in price

I'd say at least wait until Labor Day Sales go up and shop around for a good priced one.

Pricing seems to be the same as their last sale for the handful of titles I made note of last time.

Trying to get a copy of the Star Blazers: 2199 Limited Edition set off Funimation but of course, it's discounted but the Add to Cart button isn't there. Guessing this is out of stock? :(

I don't recall no game no life zero being $2.99 before (dvd) so this new sentai sale might have some good deals

Looking through Sentai's Monster Sale, the BRs I've been tracking have been cheaper before (many by 50%). New lows for Hakumei & Mikochi and Girls' Last Tour at $16.99 ea, and Amagi Brilliant Park for $14.99. I will continue to holdout for BF.

Yeah, I haven't check all the titles I've been keeping an eye on during their sales, but Votoms and Patlabor are both new lows I believe...

I'm just glad Space Runaway Ideon was backordered on Amazon. Allowed me to cancel and save $20 on the two copies I ordered.

Paid for most of season 2 of Hozuki's Coolheadedness.

The buy 2 get 1 free sale at Target has some pretty good deals. I was able to get Gundam Wing 1, Gundam Wing 2, and Endless waltz blurays for $69.73 with red card and also by matching collection 1 to amazon.
