Rose of Versailles sounded interesting so I pre-ordered it while the sets were on sale.

Stuff that shipped recently:
Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha The Movie 1st (Japanese Import)
Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha The Movie 2nd A's (Japanese Import)
Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn Volume 6


In a not-anime but anime related purchase, I bought a bunch of replacement multi-disc cases to replace some broken ones.

Saw something unusual the other day: a commercial for a comic shop in the area that I hadn't heard of. I wasn't expecting to actually find a lot of manga, but I found some good stuff there! I went because it was all 50% off + tax! So I got:

Avatar: The Last Airbender: The Promise hardcover omnibus (what I actually went in there looking for)
Happy Hustle High 4, 5
Bokurano 7
Adventure Time 1, 2
(the collected paperbacks, which I'd been meaning to start collecting for a while now. These aren't the singles, just to reiterate)
And I got a couple of pony temp tattoos for Pinkie and Twilight/Spike

They didn't have the other thing I was looking for though (Habibi by Craig Thompson, which I rented from the library and would like to own), but they said they'll order more and hopefully they'll have some by next week so I can stop by after taking care of my sister's diabetic cat that weekend)

Hooray, I just ordered Digimon season 2! Can't wait! Hope it'll be here soon so I can marathon it while watching my sister's cat!
Also won Astral Project manga on eBay for $15, I hear it's good and it is OOP CMX, which I find hard to resist some times.

^All I can say is good luck enjoying that (though Capt Yamamoto has a voice in this, that's kinda cool)

As for me, I managed to find a non-bootleg copy of Orguss 02 on DVD for a reasonable price ($20 and shipping), so yay!

you know, I used to complain all the time about them not releasing oreimo on blu-ray but I did not expect them to ask 350$ for it. I have not bought it yet and I just don't know what is best to do.
