Anime Deals June 2023 Blog Banner

To be honest, I’d like to start the Anime Deals: June 2023 Edition with the weather getting warmer and there’ll be more amazing deals coming your way.

While I’m not lying about the amazing deals part, I feel like a fraud when I’m talking about the weather.

Sure, the weather is indeed getting warmer in many parts of the world.

But in the place where I live? Sunny and rainy weather is the only thing I know all my life.

I have no idea about living in cold weather, let alone experiencing snowy weather in the flesh.

Even if it’s raining outside over the last couple of days or so, it’s still not cold as seeing snow piling up wherever you go.

It’s no wonder I can feel like I’m a fraud sometimes whenever I bring up the weather issue.

I can’t relate to waking up freezing cold.

Well, it’s a different story if I move to Japan, of course. Now we can talk about waking up to freezing cold weather, seeing flowers booming and the fallen autumn leaves, and experiencing blazing hot weather.

Okay, maybe not the blazing hot weather since that was what I’ve been experiencing all my life.

With the weather getting warmer in many parts of the world, here are some of the deals that you don’t want to miss this month.

Anime Deals: June 2023 Edition update

6/14/23 – Added a new offer from


Final Fantasy XVI Blog Banner

I bet that some of you are waiting in anticipation of Final Fantasy XVI since it’ll be coming out this month.

As you can see here, the game is now available for pre-order at Playasia.

Don’t have PS5? The good news is you can get the one that comes with Final Fantasy XVI at Playasia as well.

Of course, you can get the game in many different versions too for those who already have PS5.

Have some money to spare? You can get the deluxe edition while we’re at it too.

It’s too bad that the only deluxe edition that is still available is the European version, though. The other versions of the deluxe edition are no longer available for pre-order.

Want to get the one that comes with the Japanese voice? You can get the Asian version of the game instead.

Can’t say for sure if the US and European version of the game comes with the Japanese voice or not. But if the past Final Fantasy game is any indication, they tend to come with English voice only.

If you want the one that comes with the Japanese voice, then your best bet is to get the Asian version.

That’s the Region 3 version, in case you’re wondering.

Regardless of which version of Final Fantasy XVI you plan to get, you can pre-order the game right here at Playasia:

Just to let you know that you can get free shipping for orders above $100. While not all items are eligible for free shipping, the good news is the game is eligible for free shipping.

All you need to do is to get yourself another game and you score yourself free shipping for your order.


If you prefer to play the game completely in Japanese, not just the voice, then you can always get the Japanese version of the game.

While you can buy the game at Playasia, you can get the game at a slightly cheaper price if you buy the game from CDJapan instead.

What’s more the game itself is 5% off as I write this.

Apart from the game, you can get the game soundtrack at CDJapan as well.
