Anime Deals December 2023 Blog Banner

Imagine my shock as I’m about to write Anime Deals: December 2023 Edition that the holiday season is around the corner.

And most of all, we’re only weeks away from the year 2024 greets us at our door.

Looking back at the goals that I set for this year, it saddens me to say that I only managed to cross off a goal or two at most this year.

What causes me to not achieve any of the goals for this year is something that I will save for my reflection post coming up in the next few weeks.

But suffice it to say that I ended up biting more than I could chew.

If you have a long list of goals that you want to achieve in a year, I’m sure you can relate to that.

While I admit it’s sad that I didn’t get to achieve any of the goals that I set for this year, it doesn’t mean that I can’t make it happen next year.

As you can expect, I have so many things that I want to share with you in the coming weeks.

So, please look forward to it in my next blog update.

In the meantime, let’s have a look at what we have in store for this month’s Anime Deals: December 2023 Edition post.

If you’re looking for the best deal when it comes to getting a physical copy of the games, then the best way to look for them is none other than Playasia’s Weekly Special Deals section.

And many of them won’t be available for long, especially the games with a Japanese dub but an English subtitle.
