Anime Deals May 2022 Blog Banner

Wow, can’t believe that it’s time for me to write Anime Deals: May 2022 Edition. Time sure does fly by when you’re busy doing something.

So, how am I progressing with the goals that I shared in this post? Is there any progress with my goals for this year?

Well, sad to say that I have yet to tackle all the things that I said that I would do for this year, at least the ones that I said in the blog post, though.

As for my other goals, I’m killing it one by one so to speak.

Yes, I know that it’s already May. And before I knew it, December is already here at my doorstep and the things that I said that I would do are still not getting done yet.

Not going to lie that’s a scary scenario for me considering that it happens a lot to me more than I can count.

While I can’t say for sure when you’ll be seeing more progress on what I said that I would do, I will say that I will eventually come to it anytime soon.

It’s just that it won’t be this month, though.

Now that I already shared with you my progress with the goals, let’s take a look at all the deals that I pick for Anime Deals: May 2022 Edition.

Anime Deals: May 2022 Edition update

What is the best way to commemorate the release of the Kingdom Hearts IV trailer other than to release a brand new Sora Play Arts Kai, right?

Just like any other Play Arts Kai, this figure also comes with a display stand. And it comes with alternate hand parts to create all kinds of poses you want.

While the regular version comes with the Kingdom Key keyblade, the Deluxe version comes with two extra face parts, a smiling face and a battle face.

What’s more, the Deluxe version also comes with the Shooting Star and Ultima Weapon keyblades.

While the Play Arts Kai is set to be released on May 31, 2023, the figure is only available for pre-order until May 30, 2022, though.

If you’d like to get your hands on this figure, you can pre-order the figure right here at Playasia:
