Anime Deals December 2022 Blog Banner

As expected, the Anime Deals: December 2022 Edition post will still be about holiday shopping.

What else to talk about when the holiday season is around the corner and you’re looking for a perfect gift for the people in your life?

If you managed to snag tons of deals during Black Friday and Cyber Monday, then good for you.

But if you didn’t manage to get them for whatever reason, fret not. You can still get amazing deals even after Black Friday and Cyber Monday are now over.

The only thing that you should be concerned about is whether the items that you order will arrive just in time for the festive season or not if you’re thinking of getting them from Playasia and CDJapan.

Yes, they do offer expedited shipping if you want to beat the holiday rush.

But then again, you still need to expect that there will be a slight delay even for the expedited shipping.

And let’s not forget that it may take a while for the items to arrive too if the items you buy aren’t in stock.

If that’s your concern, then it’s best to start your holiday shopping now before it’s too late.

And don’t forget to take a look at Anime Deals: December 2022 Edition post for deals and gift ideas.

Anime Deals: December 2022 Edition update

12/7/2022 – Added a new offer from


It’s worth pointing out again that Playasia now offers free shipping for orders above $99.99.

Just be sure that the items that you want to buy have an individual weight below 650g and the total weight is under 2000g.

And you’ll be pretty much qualified for the free shipping offer.

So, what can you buy when light items are the only ones that are qualified for free shipping?

Well, you can buy games for any platform, of course.

Just to let you know that Playasia is home to many Region 3 games and the physical copies of the games that are digital-only releases in some regions.

Case in point: Legend of Mana Remastered.

Okay, I could be wrong about this. But judging from the listing that I see on Playasia, I only saw the Asia version of the game on the list.

You don’t see any other region listed on their website.

That’s Region 3 games, in case you’re wondering. They label it as the Asia version in Playasia.

If you play Legend of Mana in the past and are interested in getting the remastered edition of the game in physical copy, you can buy the game right here at Playasia.

Another light item that you can buy at Playasia is plush dolls, with many of them in stock too.

You can take a look at all the plush dolls that they have right here:

Thinking of getting a manga in Japanese as a gift instead? Well, you can surprise them by giving them a manga set.

While not many of the manga are available as a manga set, you can get many of the popular titles such as Chainsaw Man, Tokyo Ghoul, Tokyo Revengers, Ascendance of a Bookworm, and Oshi no Ko as a manga set.

As always, these manga sets will be available for a limited time only. If you’re thinking of surprising someone with a manga set, then you can take a look at this page right here at CDJapan:

My Payhip store

Of course, you can give any of my books as a gift as well. If you know someone who is into reading manga like PSYCHO-PASS and Psychometrer Eiji and they also enjoy reading light novels, then my books are a perfect fit for them.

Just to let you know that you can get the digital and the print version of any of my books at retailers such as Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

But if you want a discount on the digital edition, you can only get it on my Payhip store, though.

Interested in buying any of the books? Don’t forget to use the coupon code SEKINAMAYUBLOG to receive 25% off on your purchase.

While it’s not unusual to see deal pretty much every month, I will say that the ones that you’ll see in Anime Deals: December 2022 Edition will be different since you can only get these deals during the holiday season.

So, don’t miss any of the deals if you want to sign up with but prefer to get any of the subscriptions at a discount.

The holiday countdown deals

Unlike their usual deal where you can get a discount of up to 30% off on Basic, Premium, and Premium PLUS subscriptions, you can get a discount of up to 55% off on any of the subscriptions during the holiday season.

The caveat?

The offer that you’ll see at a given time will only last for 3 days!

Sure, you’ll get to see another new offer the next day after the previous offer ended. But the next offer isn’t going to be the same as the last one.

If you do think that the current offer that you see is a steal, then you should get the deal now since you may not get the same offer that you want in the next deal.

Of course, you can wait until the next offer comes. But the thing about this countdown deal is that it’s only available until December 13th, 2022.

That’s a pain in you know where, right?

Well, here’s the good news for you. If you go straight to their website, you’ll be at the mercy of whatever deal that comes your way.

But if you want to guarantee that you’ll get the best deal for yourself, then you can get 47% off on Basic, Premium, and Premium PLUS subscriptions by signing up through this link right here:

And it’s not just lifetime access to only. You can even get a lifetime access to other languages as well.

With a one-time price of $1499, you’ll get lifetime access to all 34 languages that Innovative Language has to offer.
