Black (Cyber) Friday Haul 2019

What’s better than Thanksgiving food? Shopping for deals on Black Friday. Technically now, according to some, Black Friday begins after Thanksgiving feasting. In Black Friday, people line up at stores and prepares to buy stuff that in major discounts. Some people stay up early in the morning in order to get those deals while others decides to take a more comfortable and begin an early Cyber Monday and shop online. Even though Cyber Monday begins on the Monday after Thanksgiving weekend, people can shop online early and still get deals. For myself, I am more of a online shopper if I am getting something for myself. On the Black Friday week, I went ahead and order some cool stuff from Barnes and Noble and RIghtstuf.

From Barnes and Noble, I got a Spyro the Dragon and Sparx Pop Funko! figure. This Spyro and Sparx will go great with my collection. He will be with the other video games I have like Crash, Sonic and Sora. Spryo and Sparx is the 38th figure of my collection.

From Rightstuf, I thank God for this sale because I was finally able to get the entire DVD collection of Sword Art Online. Aniplex of America joined this Christmas Holiday sale. As much as I wanted the Blu-Ray version, I stuck with the DVDs. The Blu-Ray collection was too high even for this sale. The collection comes with all the episodes from season 1 and the special episode Sword Art Online: Extra Edition. This cost me about $50.

Even I bought this way back in early November, I feel like sharing this anime collection. I also got the second season of Food Wars in the premium box set. This box set is big as the first set. It comes with exclusive anime items like a pin and scarf. Food Wars: The Second Plate premium set comes with the DVDs and Blu-Ray discs. This was also on sale at the Sentai Filmworks site for whopping of $50.
