Only 2? I thought you were meant to get 4. You know, 1 to watch, 1 to display, 1 to lend and 1 as a backup lol =P

I'd seriously cringe though if i ever heard anyone getting four copies of these BD collections ><

I just found out there's an official Kara no Kyoukai manga!

Here the official website with the first 3 chapters available online to read.

Me neither. It's not like this will be handled every day or anything.

To get the Sofmap bonuses though, you gotta pre-order before November 1st, 2010. I shall wait for Animate, Amiami and a few others to see what bonuses they will have before deciding which store to buy from.

I'm gonna be a bit crazy and probably order both Animate and Sofmap's release lol.
That's why I'm ordering two copies

I could wait for it to pop up on Yahoo Japan Auctions but I'd rather actually buy the sets knowing I'll get the bonuses rather than waiting and hoping they'll be listed on YJA along with the BD (and that could possibly be more expensive with markup fees from deputy services, crazy bidding prices for the bonuses and no guarantee the store bonus items will be listed separately from the BD set). Besides, I can always sell off the spare copy for a slightly cheaper price :P.

Wow, I really did pre-order the collection without realizing that it included the very thing I've been looking for from this series, lolz. I guess I just felt that the Blu-Ray discs themselves were worth the ¥36,000 that Amazon was charging. That collection is going to look really nice next to my copy of Garan no Dou signed by Kalafina, Kajiura Yuki, and Atsuhiro Iwakami.

Speaking of spending too much on a series, I was rewatching episode 5, and was reminded that I've been meaning to find a sword like the one Shiki used. Is the one in the movie based off an actual existing sword/sword-type? It looked very elegant yet simplistic. I'm probably no where near ready to pay the cost of a real authentic sword of that nature, but would give me some motivation in my kendo training.

I've read some time ago on Akibablog an article about a replica of this katana.
However it looks this sword called Kuji Kanesada (九字兼定) really exists according to this article.

Rightstuf will be selling the Blu-ray boxset. Still at a pretty expensive price, though not that bad.

Oh man... this is definitely tempting...

And their little synopsis reveals too much. We had to wait to find out why she was in that coma. I don't know what goes through the minds of the people who write these.

Scroll down to find some new Kara no Kyoukai merch being sold for the upcoming Comiket. As usual I will be getting both the DJCD and BD Goods' Bag that contains the special cushion, mug, coaster and vinyl bag.

What do you do for a living!? You must be raking in some serious numbers.

Ugh, $50 cheaper than my Amazon JP order (and I won't have to deal with FedEx not leaving it on the porch). If they threw in one more bonus (poster, cell phone charm, etc.) I'd switch over.

All those extras are simply delicious. Goddamnit, if I had a blu-ray player I would be all over this. A lack of dub means nothing in the face of those extras and packaging.

The omake picture is priceless ^^. Shame that it's already sold out. But I now have another shop that I must visit the next time I visit Japan/Akiba.

I am having a hard time understanding the complaints around the internet about the set's price. It is an import of the actual Japanese release, minus the import/exchange/shipping/customs costs.

Are you actually attending Comiket in person? Or buying these items through a third party?
