Anime Deals August 2023 Blog Banner

Now that summer is already in full swing, you can expect the Anime Deals: August 2023 Edition post to be a little lackluster.

Hold on, that can’t be true, right?

Isn’t summer the season where people tend to spend the money the most?

Well, you’re right about that on that front. But it’s more for those who are operating a vacation home or a restaurant in a tourist hotspot.

They’re one of the industries where you can see the surge in spending.

Of course, it’s not just the tourist hotspot where you’ll see the surge in spending.

Even a restaurant, coffee shop, or café at a prime location will experience a surge in people during summer as well.

But on the retail front, you don’t see that much going around.

The only time when you see the promotions kicking into high gear is around September onward.

Does it mean that we won’t be seeing any deals at all this month?

Of course, the answer is no. You’ll still be seeing deals in Anime Deals: August 2023 Edition post.

But it’s not going to be that many, though. That explains why this month’s Anime Deals post doesn’t seem to have that much going around here either.

Anime Deals: August 2023 Edition update

8/16/2023 – Added a new deal from Fanatical.


As you can expect, there’s nothing much going on at Playasia this month other than their weekly deals.

If you’re in the mood to get a new game for yourself in physical copy, then you may want to have a look at their recent weekly deals right here:

Playasia’s latest game promotion

Just to let you know that you can get free shipping for orders above $100 at Playasia.

While not all items are eligible for free shipping, the good news is games are eligible for the free shipping promotion.

So, don’t miss your chance to get free shipping for all the games that you want to buy at Playasia.


Okay, CDJapan may not have something like a weekly deal where you can see different markdown items every week.

But they do have a page where you can see the items that will be coming out each week.

I like that this page covers every facet of the category, from the usual Jpop and Kpop categories to games and soundtracks.

Since many of you are here for the new releases for manga in Japanese, you can take a look at this page right here to see what manga that will be coming out this week and so forth:

CDJapan new manga release

Just so you know that CDJapan does offer a discount coupon from time to time through email.

I can’t say for sure if they will offer one this month. But all I can say is to keep your eyes glued to your inbox for any discount promotion from CDJapan.

My Payhip store

While I admit that none of my books are the beach read type, they can be a fun read to you if enjoy reading light novels that are in the thriller and suspense genre.

Curious about my books? You can take a look at any of them right here:

Books by Sekina Mayu

Does any of the books catch your fancy? Don’t forget to use the coupon code SEKINAMAYUBLOG to get 25% off on your purchase.

In case you’re wondering, my books are also available in print and on other retailers such as Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, and Apple Books.

But you can only get a discount when you buy the books at my Payhip store.


Lone Wolf and Cub Bundle on Fanatical

Fanatical is back with yet another bundle offer. And this time it’s the Lone Wolf and Cub bundle deal.

Just like the Vampire Hunter D bundle, you can choose to get a single book for $1.99 or get them all for $19.99.

That’s a massive saving since you’ll have to pay $5.99 just for one omnibus edition of the book on Amazon.

And if you’re in the mood to splurge, the same amount of price you’ll pay during the Fanatical bundle deal will only get you 3 books but at a slightly cheaper price.

That’s $17.95 if you’re wondering how much you’ll pay for three Lone Wolf and Cub books on Amazon.

Unless you already signed up with Comixology Unlimited, the bundle deal sure is a steal if you ask me.

Fanatical is kind enough to give me a free copy of the bundle and a 15% discount for my blog readers.

If you enjoy reading Lone Wolf and Cub and want to get all of them at a bargain price, you can buy the bundle deal right here on Fanatical:

Don’t forget to use the coupon code GN7abv4fLLhf during checkout to get 15% off on any of your preferred bundles.

So, don’t miss your chance to get this bundle at a bargain price while you still can.
