Collection Count

Collection Count tracks my DVD/Blu-ray collection via a number of statistics every week.

This week's additions are mostly anime: that big sale order I've been talking about finally turned up, as did this week's single biggest addition (in every sense), the ultimate edition of Neon Genesis Evangelion. It's huge, heavy, and gorgeous. Should it replace my Platinum Edition DVDs, though? I ought to double-check the special features and sort that out, because there's no point keeping DVDs of something I have on Blu-ray unless the Blu-rays are missing content. The DVDs are in a rather nice tin, though...

Number of titles in collection: 2,745 [up 10]
Of which DVDs: 1,058 [down 1]
Of which Blu-rays: 1,687 [up 11]
— of which Ultra HD Blu-rays: 139 [up 1]

Number of discs in collection: 6,868 [up 27]
Number of films: 3,220 [up 8]
Number of additional cuts: 243 [no change]
Number of TV episodes: 9,187 [up 68]
Number of short films: 909 [up 2]

See you next week, faithful reader... though probably not on my usual day, as that's Christmas Day and I imagine I'll be busy. But you never know.
