Anime Deals November 2022 Blog Banner

Again, it’s hard to believe that November is here as I’m looking for the deals to feature in Anime Deals: November 2022 Edition post.

And before we know it, the holiday season is right here around the corner.

As I said in my previous Anime Deals post, it doesn’t hurt to get started with doing holiday shopping early.

That seems to be the case if you’re planning to get your gifts from places like CDJapan and Playasia.

Yes, you may not need to start now if you’re planning to buy the gifts you want locally or you’re opting for digital gifts instead.

But we all know how stressful it is to deal with the holiday rush. And if you’re thinking about giving digital gifts, it can feel like it doesn’t have as much impact as giving a physical gift.

Regardless of what you plan to give and where to buy them, it doesn’t hurt to start early.

And it doesn’t sound like a bad idea too if you want to start shopping for holiday gifts this month.

If you’re thinking about getting started with holiday shopping this month, then don’t miss this Anime Deals: November 2022 Edition post for bargains and gift ideas.

Anime Deals: November 2022 Edition update

11/9/2022 – Added Black Friday promotion from


I admit that I don’t talk much about getting books from Playasia simply because they don’t carry that many titles.

But if you’re looking for books that may no longer be available elsewhere, then it doesn’t hurt to search for them at Playasia.

For one, any Final Fantasy Ultimania guide. While these books may no longer be available at bookstores like Kinokuniya, you can still get them at Playasia.

Sure, some of the books may not be in stock. But if you don’t mind waiting a little bit, then you can get pretty much any books that you want at Playasia since you can get most of them within a week or so.

That’s the beauty of doing your holiday shopping early. You have the room to wait a little bit to get something that you want.

If you’re wondering what books they sell, you can take a look at what they have right here:

Buy books at Playasia


As always, the same books that you can buy at Playasia are also available at CDJapan. Heck, you have plenty of choices to choose from too.

If the book you want to buy at Playasia may only be available in a few days or so but it’s still in stock at CDJapan, then you may as well buy the book at CDJapan.

And the fact that the Japanese yen is cheaper as I write makes buying anything in Japanese yen less expensive than it used to be.

Wondering if the books that you’re looking for are still available at CDJapan or not? You can browse the book selection right here:

My Payhip store

Not going to lie that any of my books can also be a perfect gift for those who are into reading original light novels, particularly in the thriller and suspense genre.

If you happen to know someone who enjoys reading original light novels just as much as you do, then consider giving any of my books as a gift.

While the books that you can get from my Payhip store tend to be digital by nature, you can add the print book as well if you prefer.

Just to let you know that you can get any of my books in print on Amazon. But if you’re thinking of getting any of my books digitally at a discount, consider buying them through my Payhip store.

When we think about the Black Friday sale, we tend to associate it with the end-of-the-month sale.

But that’s not the case with since their Black Friday sale starts this week and will be until November 25th, 2022.

That’s a pretty long Black Friday sale if you ask me.
