Anime Deals August 2022 Blog Banner

While I always say that the Anime Deals: August 2022 edition will be so much different than usual, I mean it this time.

How different will it be?

Well, some posts will tie back to the news I came across over the last couple of days.

Just to be clear that it’s rare to come across news that is enough to make people go wild.

So, you won’t be seeing groundbreaking news this much no matter how high and low you’re searching for it.

But I do my best to cover any news that I think you should know.

And of course, I will also share with you my take on the news. That’s the whole reason for me to cover the news in the first place.

Don’t worry, I’m not going to talk about current issues in the blog unless it’s necessary.

Other than that, you can rest assured that all the things that I’ll be sharing with you going forward will relate to the anime, manga, and video game fandom, for the most part.

With that said, let’s take a look at all the amazing deals that you don’t want to miss in Anime Deals: August 2022 Edition.

Anime Deals: August 2022 Edition update

8/10/22 – Added a new offer from


NieR Automata Plushies Blog Banner

Seeing these NieR Automata plushies somehow reminded me of the news that has been circulating on Reddit where the original poster was asking how to enter the church.

Of course, everyone who already played the game will ask the person who posted on Reddit “What church?”

Well, at least for me since I don’t remember anything that resembles a church, let alone how to enter one.

As you can already guess, it sparks the news among the fans when the original poster posted video footage showing how he accessed the church through a secret door.

It was only after the news spread like a wildfire that the original poster finally revealed on Twitch that it was user-generated content.

And it’s not one person who created the whole thing either. It turns out to be that there are three of them.

He never thought that what he did would create such a commotion among the fans.

At the very least, I’m glad that the church is user-generated content, not a part of the original game. It kind of feels sad that I missed the secret place if it’s true.

Just to let you know that you can only play this user-generated content if you have the PC version of NieR Automata.
