Kind of surprised me that Shogun's Joy of Torture from Arrow came without a booklet. No idea if there was a slip.

I bought the US edition early on. It had a booklet but no slip

Any suggestions on the best way to locate a couple of missing Arrow booklets? Are there sites where people sell or trade them?

Search eBay for listings with pictures that physically verify inclusion of a booklet

Received Bicycle Thieves and Bloody Spear at Mount Fuji from a late August Zavvi purchase and both have booklets.

FWIW, I just received Nightfall through Rarewaves, and no booklet. Not too surprised as it’s been out a while.

I really wish Arrow would follow the Indicator model and issue the initial pressing under a different SKU.

Am I missing something or has the re-vamped Arrow website eliminated booklet downloads?

Agreed. it's why I skip their sales. If I don't buy it early on I tend to just wait for a used copy on eBay so I can confirm a booklet is included.

Since I see someone mentioned it in August I actually grabbed The Invisible Man Appears the other day from Amazon and got a booklet. So random.

Didn't open it, but it looked like there was no booklet in Over the Edge, just a card of some sort.

Has anyone bought recently A Tale of Two Sisters with a slipcover but no booklet? (This happened to me a few years back with A Fish Called Wanda.) DiabolikDvd just re-stocked Sisters told me there was a slipcover but weren't completely certain of the booklet.

Doesn't the slipcover usually mean it will still have a booklet? I've never run into a release that still had the slipcover but no booklet.

impressively Masumura's Black Test Car came from the Arrow sale with a booklet. let's see if Giants and Toys and Irezumi do too, but they're inexplicably backordered
