If you're logged in at 5pm, you'll have a second chance at Hyouka: Part 2 and Ping Pong! They found some more units.

Day 3 is up, with Horror the theme, not my genre of choice. There are a couple of pre-orders for titles I haven't seen, Kings Game and Calamity of a Zombie Girl. There's a bundle if you want a wodge of anime.

https://www.alltheanime.com/collections/12-days-of-christmas

Still there are some must owns here too,

Baccano
Perfect Blue
Gankutsuou is a great show, but it's a rare one that is not as good on BD as it is on DVD in terms of visuals. The audio is better though.

If you're adventurous,

The Tokyo Ghoul franchise is worth a look if you avoid the live action movie.
Belladonna of Sadness is a Tezuka era classic that is hardly traditional anime, very adult.
Black Butler is a partial, the first couple of seasons are hard to find now, but okay if you don't mind starting from the middle of a franchise.

Day 4 is the Ultimate Edition sale...

Yeah... Cowboy Bebop for £200...

Maybe take a chance on some of the £9.99 jobbies, but really, only think about spending this kind of money if you're a hardcore fan and you know fully in advance what you're buying.

Day 5... TV and Movies sale (a bit of a generic descriptor but...)

https://www.alltheanime.com/collections/12-days-of-christmas

A realistic sale price for Cowboy Bebop today without goodies/tat (delete as appropriate)
£10 DVD £15 BD.
Outlaw Star is a fun romp, and the Blu-ray is excellent
Sword of the Stranger is a must own film.

Today, Day 6 is all Movies

Two pre-order discounts for forthcoming Collector's Editions of A Silent Voice and Penguin Highway. I previously reviewed the SE for A Silent Voice and it's a must own title.

Better discounts on Napping Princess, Patema Inverted, and Wings of Honneamise, all films that I really rate.

Day 7 is Gundam Day.

And for once, I don't feel qualified to recommend or advise against any of these shows.
Gundam's just not my bag, baby!

Day 8, Stocking Fillers, all under a fiver

I'd recommend

Aoharu X Machinegun was a fun show about paintballing
The Fullmetal Panic shows are classics
Kino's Journey
Space Dandy if you can't find the Blu-ray
Mind Game's a trip
The Tiger and Bunny movies are worth taking a shot on. The Beginning summarises the TV series, which is harder to get hold of now. It's not great, but it does fill the blanks in for The Rising, which alone is worth the tenner you'd spend on the two films.

The Overlap begins, as MVM kick of their 12 Days of Christmas Sale.

Today is one for collectors and those in the know, as they knock 50% and more off selected MVM Collector's Editions.

There's only really one cheap as chips set, Fruits Basket, which is the original, not the new version. It's still a great show.

As for the rest, they are all good shows, quality titles. Personally, I'd think twice about Armed Girl's Machiavellism and Log Horizon, as I don't find them quite as good as the others, but I'd watch A Lull in the Sea, Flip Flappers, Grimoire of Zero, Monthly Girls, Sword Oratoria, Princess Principal. Girl's Last Tour, Tenchi Muyo, and The Eccentric Family in a heartbeat

Day 9 is Memorable Moments from All the Anime

There's a pre-order deal for Plastic Memories. I've only seen part of the series, but it's a rom-com about a boy and his robot. Chobits but a little more serious.

Erased is good, an engaging mystery.
Your Lie In April is brilliant, but they only have part 2 of the BD, you can get the whole series on DVD though.
The first season of Durarara!! is outstanding, but the second loses a bit of the shine.
Kill la Kill is seriously wacky. It's an irreverent over the top take on magical girls that astounds you with its nuttiness.
March Comes in Like A Lion is an interesting character based show about Japanese chess (shogi).

And those are the shows that I'd recommend from this day.

Expelled from Paradise, It turns out that I rated it highly when I reviewed it, but I can remember a thing about it, which can't be good.

MVM’s Day 2 is all movies...

https://www.anime-on-line.com/xcart/home.php?cat=3004&sort=orderby&sort_direction=0&page=1

My recommendation for films that work best without having seen the associated series...

No Game, No Life Zero, and Girls Und Panzer.
