I think the blu-ray cover insert is too wide for its case; maybe it is the width the DVD one should've been.

I have a Sentai Chunibyo insert that was like that though not as bad as yours, and that was the issue with it; it was too wide to fit flat in the case; I compared it to another insert that fit and it was nearly 1/8" wider. I was able to flatten it by putting a stack of heavy books on it, though I think it took a month or more. Actually it's still there now because I haven't gotten around to trimming it so I can put it back in.

I think even for the same case thickness, the Elite cases can't have as wide an insert because of how they're rounded on the spine, compared to the more square edges of some other case brands.

Yeah, that's a common issue with that release, for some reason the cover dimensions were made to big. Maybe they thought the cases would be 4-disc size. I believe Terror in Resonance Limited Edition had the same problem.

I went to HMV again today (I went last Friday but I didn't buy anything) to see if there was anything I could get from their 20% discount sale. I wanted to get my parents another gift so I got them a film called The Favourite. After that, I checked the anime section and I decided to get both Ghost in the Shell: The New Movie and Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex: Solid State Society.

^^ I actually purchased my "Crying Freeman" Steel via a private deal kevers7290 but that opportunity to purchase direct from Turbine is a fair price I'd say.

Looks great. I preordered Giant Robo on Target, had a gift card, hope it won't be too long of a wait.

Trust me it's 100% worth the wait. I wish I worked on this (when I started doing stuff for Discotek via MediaOCD this was almost done)...

The amount of extras here is insane. This gives Criterion a run for their money in regards to the supplements. I'll go into more detail when I do my big writeup but it exceeds expectations in pretty much every way.

Got my Sentai order in today. I thought of holding off on the GLT Premium set but it is nice and compact.

I liked the GLT set for that reason as well. Most of the other Sentai CE/Premium editions always seem to be a lot bigger with Tall DVD size cases. Don't fit as nicely in my bookshelf and take up a lot of room.

Sentai Haul and Made in Abyss Movies 1 and 2 from Amazon Japan





Warning, image dump within:

[Show spoiler]
The first movie has a box to hold both parts. The first part is a fairly slim folding case. The second part has a slip cover with a similar folding case, so on their own the packaging is quite different for each film. Altogether the box matches the Series JP releases nicely.

Main Box Front. Unfortunately it's not the same level of chipboard as the Series, in fact I think it's closer to a very heavy card stock.



Main Box Back



First film folding case





Second film slip cover, packaged



Back



Second film slip cover, unwrapped



Second film folding case



All boxes aligned. The movie box does not have a shiny logo on the spine, unfortunately.





Also, I got the Amazon special versions that were supposed to come with a little fluffy animal (the things from the caves) coin purse, and, I think, an A3 poster. Unfortunately, it seems you get a voucher with a QR code to scan and request these items. I have no idea how well this is going to work for me being in the USA.

Also, like the Series releases, the Obi that goes around that bottom of the box is WAY to effing tight. I suggest peeling it open and sticking it back together with more slack. Otherwise you will rip the Obi or scratch your box trying to put it back on when your done eyeing the contents...

I’m flattered, haha. IKEA Ekbacken countertop in the concrete finish (not sure if they still sell that one). Nice and cheap, the long panels were like $88 I think. I have 2 of them in DIY floating L pattern, atop two of their drawer cabinets (I forget the names, it’s the basic ones everybody gets. See r/battlestations). It’s part of my work in progress office/theater/chill room. I hope to post it to the home theater thread one day soon.

So it turns out I did get my RS order the same day as my Sentai order, just delivered later in the day


Never seen Joshiraku but since I was just introduced to rakugo in the new show Kabukichou Sherlock a show about CG doing it sounds really fun.

Please watch Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu. Best Rakugo show and probably THE best anime of the decade up there with Sangatsu no Lion.
