Anime Deals September 2022 Blog banner

As I’m gearing up for Anime Deals: September 2022 Edition, there are many things that got me thinking.

One of them is Sony will be increasing the price of PS5 for all regions except for the United States.

As someone who is planning to buy the PS5 in the near future, that doesn’t sound like good news to me considering that I prefer to buy the PS5 when the price drops.

But with the chip shortage and the supply chain issue, I get why Sony has to increase the price.

While I’m not too happy about the price increase, I have no issue with having to wait a little longer to buy PS5.

As far as the games are concerned, most of the games that I want to play are still being released on PS4. And only a handful of them is PS5-exclusive, which makes PS5 isn’t that much worth getting at least for now.

Of course, you can argue here that you can play PS4 games on PS5. But if you already have a PS4, you don’t have to rush to buy PS5. It’s a different story when all game developers stop releasing games on PS4.

I won’t deny that the fated day will eventually come soon. But for now, I don’t see any game developers will stop releasing games on PS4 anytime soon.

Putting the PS5 issue aside, if you’re thinking about saving money on manga, you can read my post on how you can do just that right here.

But as for the anime and video game merchandise, here are some of them that you don’t want to miss.

Anime Deals: September 2022 update

9/14/22 – Added a new offer from


Free Shipping Playasia

Due to the price increase, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that it will affect shipping as well.

Because of that, Playasia is now offering free shipping via Airmail when your order is above $99.99.

And the best part? There’s no end date to this promotion.

The only caveat is not all items will be eligible for free shipping. If the individual weight of an item is more than 650g, then the free shipping option won’t be available for this item.

And the total weight has to be below 2000g too if you want the order to be eligible for free shipping.

I have no way to know if the figures are eligible for free shipping or not. But as long as the items are light, then I’m pretty sure that you can get free shipping when your purchase is more than $99.99.
