Good Afternoon Folks:
@Wreck and @Apollon have given me permission to create a thread they will 'Sticky' within this sub-forum, so that we may discuss and announce, any anime materiel that may be deemed of interest.
As the title suggests, we'd love to hear about;
- your recent purchases (including great sales others would be interested in)
- any news on pre-orders or titles going OOP forthcoming, and
- of course your views and points of interest wrt titles old, new and hoped for!

Pictures are of course welcome, as are links to titles available for sale. All within the bounds of existing forum rules, of course.
*note: Trades and sales would not be appropriate here, as there is already a very healthy Trade Forum for all subjects.

I know there are some very knowledgeable anime fans at HDN and we very much look forward to seeing your posts!
(also, spread the word please).

As I am not a Moderator, please feel free to contact @Apollon with any issues you may have regarding this thread.

Thanks for stopping by!

Good Afternoon my Anime Loving Friends!
First I'd like to post a couple of pics of something that absolutely floors me.
A good friend of mine in Germany ordered this and it arrived yesterday.
I've sent him an email asking for more info and I can post it here for the curious.
I do know, IT IS HUGE! :OMG:

Hi my friend @AlienKing !
The statue is released by Prime 1 Studio in Japan.
Here's a link to their web-site;
Prime 1 Studio: https://www.prime1studio.com/

A lot of goodies there.
Problem is, shipping would be crazy expensive I fear for any of their large statues.
My friend in Germany actually got his through a dealer in Holland, which cut down on his expenses.
Now the good news is, That Sideshow Collectibles in the USA also handles many of Prime 1 Studios releases.
Here's their link to "Home" and the "Prime listings";

Home: https://www.sideshow.com/

Prime 1 Studio listings: https://www.sideshow.com/search?keywords=prime+1+studio

Both web-sites (Prime and SS) have pretty darn good search engines so you can cruise at liesure.
Still a little out of my league price wise but at least a little closer to home. ;)

Cheers my friend!

I do realize that I've been negligent as of late keeping things humming along here.
Thank-you so much to those that have posted the wonderful news of the Steelbook (in that respective thread) releases forthcoming for both Berserk and Samurai Champloo !
I do wish to mention though, that Shout! is bringing us "Millennium Actress" on Blu shortly and I do hope there are many as excited as I to see this wonderful film in HD.
A little Youtube vid I have the opportunity to link, may help you with your choice;


:)

Hello my friend, @AlienKing ;
I hope you find the post above worthwhile. :)
Awesome! Thanks. I've never seen this before, but i'll give it a shot.

Also, I've got a huge anime haul I gotta start posting...once I get some time that is.
My haul from RightStuff came in and one if them is missing a slipcover. It's weird because it's one of those releases that should have the slipcover sealed inside the shrink wrap. I'm not sure if it's worth contacting them...:dunno:

I love this series. My dad was a chef so it's close to my heart. Yes, I opened it and binge watched it again.
Ooo that's so cool. Must be good to have a chef at home. You get to try different dishes. I dont, and that's why I watch this to satisfy my hunger for that need :LOL:
S1 and 2 was great but I didnt like S3 story as much. It was still fun to watch though.
