Hurray for anime!


Any standouts in this pickup? I don't recognize many of them, but am always looking for new anime to try.

really depends on what kind of anime you enjoy. can you give some examples of shows you watched and liked.

Kenichi is a fun show, but sadly is one of those anime that ends after the end of the first major manga arc, like Kekaishi.

Eyeshield 21is Shonen Jump Football. All you need to know.

im a little jelly of that squid girl but with media blasters delaying the second season its not looking too promising. Thats the reason I didnt buy that yet but im so tempted to.


Squid Girl is a very reasonable price though, regardless of the second season being delayed. It's not like it's not episodic, and season 1 isn't enjoyable by itself.

the delay is because media blasters is struggling financially. The delay means they pushed it back and the second season might not even be released. So for me for collection purposes I do not like incomplete sets. Most of the shows I have seen already I just buy the shows to support the industry but i wont buy a show with a questionable second season because I need both seasons in my collection.

I guess all the recommendations are already done, so I don't need to say much more. ;D

Picked this up yesterday. Couldn't find any information about it online, but it was only $3. It's a semi-transparent plexiglass xbox sign.

I'm going to let you in on a little secret. Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don't plan it. Don't wait for it. Just let it happen. It could be a new shirt at the men's store, a catnap in your office chair, or two cups of good, hot black coffee.

this show looks very suspect with these shirtless dudes on the cover but it is a really good show. I was put off by the cover art for years before I finally watched it and it turned out to be really good and has one of my favorite female characters in any anime.

From the 50% off gamestop sale. Was going to get more, but they were out. An unknown bonus was that Resistance 2 came with the Dual Pack super voucher, and it actually worked\\:D/

Also got a bunch of digital stuff:

Groupees Retro and Chip Tune Bundles
Humble Mobile
Mark of the Ninja
Castle Crashers
Dust: An Elysian Tale
ilomilo

School Rumble
Ouron High School Host Club
Persona 4: The Animation
Fruits Basket (need to finish this)

Those are off the top of my head, I have a hard time remembering a lot of names of shows for some reason:-k

So... A lot of high school comedy.

Have you seen (Suzumiya) Haruhi? Fumoffu? Hayate no Gotoku (last volume would be near impossible to get)? The previously mentioned Squid Girl?

Or go more supernatural with Angel Beats and DRRR!!?

Actually, this is more of a job for Squarehard.

If yoy like school comedies, I definitely recommend Azumanga Daioh and Cromartie High School.

Today's pickups via mail:

Via Best Buy's B1G1 Free:

I hate it when they put stickers on a lenticular slipcover.

And FYE:

Saint Tail and Get Smart were part of a B1G1 50% Off deal, while IGPX was only $2. Unfortunately, FYE slapped tape and stickers all over Get Smart, ruining the slipcover.

oh, yeah I watched a bit of Angel Beats. Couldn't really get into it very much, but as it's pretty short I mine as well finish it (about half way through is where I stopped). I've been watching Full Metal Panic, so I might move onto the spin off when I finish S1. Lucky Star was one I forgot to mention I liked, but as it's also a highschool comedy I suppose it doesn't matter. Mostly I watch these through netflix, hulu, youtube and the like, so price isn't a huge factor. I really don't plan on buying a show if I don't really like it (I don't buy much of any TV/Movies). I'll look into Squid Girl, as that seems to be the popular choice;)

Just the beginning of the intro even is incredibly suspect and my friend almost didn't watch it until I told him there's a very intentional reason the guys are all like that, lol. It is one of my favorite series too, and Sunako is definitely one of my favorite female characters as well. ^__^

I guess after all the GS GCN clearances they're getting pretty rare now as they can't be found as easily anymore just by walking into a GS. :*(

Go stop whatever you're doing and watch Ergo Proxy, then! I just finished it and was very, very impressed. In fact, it is the first show to impress me since I watched through GitS for the first time nearly a year ago. Do keep in mind, though, that I prefer things that are more mature and thought provoking. That is certainly not everyone's taste, so YMMV based on that. =P

yeah it literally took me like 2-3 years to finally watch it after not having anything to watch. I'm glad I did because it turned out to be a great series, Sunako is a top 5 female character for me.

And who says GS never has good deals? Katana was 50% off the sticker price, and Kamen wasn't too expensive either.

that's been on my list for a long time. I think I might finally start it tonight (if Sound Shapes doesn't draw me back in. Darn those death mode levels);)

Been a while. So far, this is my only physical pick-up this month:

Spoiler

Grabbed it at GameStop for $5.39. Kinda disappointed the first one isn't also marked down.

Also picked up Punch-Out!! on the Wii U's Virtual Console for 30 cents.

Did you find that in circulation for cover price or private sale?

eBay, for eBay prices. Basically the only option at this point.
