How is the King of Thorns anime? I really enjoyed the manga. Especially the art style and pacing. Does it translate well?

It's actually a decent title on its own, but unfortunately the film actually takes it in a completely different direction as far as plot is concerned, and basically the characters are just really there by name, but that's about it.  Definitely not something that is loyal to the manga at all, but you will probably still enjoy it since it's not bad on its own.

Pickups from the deepdiscount "sale".

 

Also getting over 70 different manga in in the past week as I've been on a frenzy with that. Might post them all when I get them all in.

Did come with slipcover, but I started watching right away and didn't bother to put it back on yet.

Whoever designed the Mel Brooks set, thank you for not adding that stupid blue bar.

I know this is a poor thread to ask this in, but I see a lot of people buying Ouyas.

 

I want one, but I've heard to very disconcerting issues. Controller lag and constant micro-transactions pop-ups. I heard that the controller lag makes some games virtually unplayable and that with the constant requests for micro-transactions popping up, that it is very easy to inadvertently purchase things you don't intend (and that the system is lacking an "are you sure you want to purchase this..." check).

 

Have either of these issues been resolved?

I haven't hooked mine up yet. I need to grab an HDMI to DVI adapter still (hopefully today or tomorrow). I'll let you know once I do.

I was not been aware of those issues and I haven't experienced them with my Ouya. Then again I haven't really played it that much since there are not many games on it right now and most of my play time has been with NES games.

 

As an NES player, it's great.

These are about 2/3 of the manga I ordered showing up. Gohastings hasn't failed me yet when it comes to manga. All got here in great shape and none reeked of smoke! Got most of these on a whim, or just glanced at reviews and pulled the trigger. I'll see what i got into once I start combing through these.

Picked up these two at the local game store for $10 after I traded in some old sports games I wasn't playing on my 360.

I just won a massive switch box on ebay.  Gonna take work and $$$ to make it do the job I need, but it's gonna be so awesome when it's done!  12 inputs, 8 outputs.  I can run composite, S-vid, component, and whatever else will run through coaxial cable ;D

These also showed up yesterday.  Got my new guy testing them all out.  So far they all seem to be 100% salvageable :D

Picked up some nice stuff locally today, notably:

 

Lunar the Silver Star (Sega CD): $34.99 (complete, mint)

Phantasy Star (Master System): $19.99 (complete, near mint, manual is a B probably)

Gallop Racer 2006 (PS2): $1.99

 

All from a local Half Price Books. They also had a Burning Rangers (Saturn) complete and mint for $89.99 which is a great price but I already have it disc only and couldn't justify spending the money. Also a beautiful copy of Shining the Holy Ark (Saturn) for $49.99 which I considered but passed on and a Shantae (GBC) for $199.99. Someone traded in an awesome collection.

Wiggy I love the stuff you sell on your site, do you mind me asking where you get all of these? XD  Since you said they all arrived today I'm assuming you bought them in bulk somewhere.  I'm very interested in how you run your business :)
