Do note that the dub makes Black Lagoon sound like an HBO show, so if you dislike strong language, stick to the sub.


I don't see the problem with the strong language since most of the characters are vulgar individuals.That and the dub follows the manga script really close,so it's true to the material.

BL is one of the few series that I don't mind the strong language, but a fair chunk of people hate the dub for that reason.

EDIT: Geez, I got so much crap I forgot stuff from my list earlier. Also have High School of the Dead, Demon King Daimao, Night Raid, and Allison & Lillia to watch.

:-/ Dairugger volume 3 went out of print when I wasn't paying attention. I'll have to stop at the last place I saw a copy and see if it's still there. If it is, then I'll come back tomorrow and order volumes one and two. Although I hate buying something that's overpriced simply so that I don't have to buy it from a secondary seller at a price that's ridiculously overpriced.

You know, they used to let you search based if it is marked as part of a sale or not, but for some reason they seem to have removed that option from Advanced Search. Pretty annoying when I'm trying to find something to fill out my order.

Infinite Stratos thumbs up.

Watched an episode of IS, the mecha suits look cool but this seems like another typical harem anime.

Is it harem? If it is, what makes it different than other harems?

I'm so sick of the typical loser guy who somehow gets lots of pretty girls falling in love with him while he plays clueless.

PS:

No one would recommend Blassreiter? Think a blu-ray is coming?

Had collection 3 had been easier to obtain I would have jumped on the first two collections on sale, but as I've pretty much given up hope on finding collection 3 for cheap I had to hunker down and make the decision to pass on it.

It's funny you say that because the first two episodes tells you absolutely nothing about the series, but everybody is entitled to their opinions.

I Kept reading reviews that said the best part of that series was Aoi and whatever his name is relationship's developing and the harem part hinders it. Well, wasn't even near the harem part and I was so randomly angry. I'm not going to tear anyone apart for liking it though, but man that cup of tea made me bitter.

Here's what I picked up on my last order

Burn Up! DVD
Cybuster DVD Bargain Bundle
Detroit Metal City DVD Complete Collection
Ghost in the Shell: Solid State Society blu
Madara DVD
Pet Shop of Horrors DVD Complete Collection
Samurai Deeper Kyo DVD Complete Series
The Third: The Girl with the Blue Eye

Between this sale and deepdiscount, I've spent way too much on anime this year.

Anyone on the fence about Soul Eater, its worth a watch (I picked it up from Rightstuf along with the Black Lagoon blu about a month or so ago). I just finished it up a couple days ago. I'm not going to keep it but I enjoyed it. A couple of the characters can be annoying early on in the series but once the main story kicks in it gets better. BAKA

Cybuster DVD Bargain Bundle

Normally I try not to criticize others preferences but...ew. Cybuster is horrible. Took a SRW character and turned into a bad Gundam/Captain Planet mix. It's not even good MST fodder.

Yes, Infinite Stratos is a harem anime, it's exactly what you described above except I suppose the guy isn't a loser. I found it entertaining, but average, if that.

You did pick up Full Metal Panic season 1, right? Fumoffu is the sequel and the jokes are much funnier if you understand the characters. Unfortunately, FMP s1 kinda sucks, so that's the sacrifice you have to make.

My Bride is a Mermaid is the funniest anime I have ever seen. Story is just a strong C, but the jokes, the animation and Nagasumi's reactions will kill you.

If you want to laugh a lot out loud, then get this series, you will not regret it. I've got the Complete Collection on full price but I still never regretted it. One of the best comedy ever made.

Well, no Dairugger for me. I had to make a few more hard cuts today, but I think I'm more or less done picking stuff up from this sale. Here's what I picked up this year:

The World God Only Knows blu ray holiday bundle
No. 6 blu ray
Dream Eater Merry blu ray
Hidamari Sketch holiday bundle
And Yet the Town Moves
Aria Season 3
Kobato Collection 1
Kobato Collection 2
Mahoromatic: I'm Home

I've got one last decision that I'm still trying to make. I'm trying to figure out whether or not to order Psychic Squad (Zettai Karen Children). After another $30 for volume 4, it would cost $81 to pick up the whole series.

Initial D Stage 1-4
K-On!! Season 2 blu ray bundle
Honey and Clover 1-3
Redline
Rozen Maiden
Rozen Maiden Ouverture

There were probably a few more things I would have wanted but I didn't want to go too crazy here. I'm also disappointed the Utena DVDs didn't go on sale. I've always wanted to watch the series, maybe I'll be able to pick them up during a New Year's sale or the next RS/Nozomi sale.

A lot of the Korean dramas are on Hulu. Any one know if they'll remain on Hulu when YA closes their doors? I'm not even sure the ones on Hulu are licensed by YA.
