Just Utena for me this week. I'm still working up the nerve to start collecting the Gundam UC Blurays Laughing . Strangely no manga for me this week. Was thinking about No Longer Human, but maybe later on.

Already received my copies of Ouran High School Host Club 17, D.Gray-Man Illustrations (the artwork is gorgeous, pick this up if you’re a fan of the series! I've fallen in love with artbooks, I need to find a place that lists all the ones that are out in NA...), and Blue Exorcist 5. I’m still waiting for Natsume’s Book of Friends vol. 10 though. Razz

Did Tales of the Abyss part 2 really come out this week? I know Bandai's site apparently lists it as in stock, but Amazon lists January....I would be thrilled if mine showed up before Christmas.

Woah....when did Project H Books hit the scene?



Research.......oh, it's a parent company of DMP. What a bold move. I wonder how big the books are considering the price.

Check out Birdy the Mighty if you haven't already, it's great stuff.

Glad to see Mazinkaiser SKL finally out on Blu-ray, I'm definitely getting myself an early Christmas gift with that one.

On Project H: They popped up earlier this year with three initial books slated for release in August/October/November, but their first one (Shocking Pink) got delayed until November and according to Amazon, Three P here isn't actually coming out until January now. I'm not seeing a solid date on Embrace And Bloom anymore.

That price is probably more the Adult Premium than anything else, although they're actually going for 11-something new on Amazon. Also worth noting that it looks like their releases keep the censorship (which I imagine saves a lot of money on something people are more or less use to anyway, but that may be a disappointment some folks nonetheless).

I had almost forgotten about the last Revolutionary Girl Utena set, but then I got a notification that mine had shipped. I have no idea what I'll do with a rose signet ring that probably won't fit and that I'd likely never wear anyway, but I'll have one.

I keep vacillating on whether I want Princess Knight or not. The question merits further investigation.

I second that that. It's a very entertaining and engaging series with a very well put-together plot, especially in the really excellent second season, and a really good lead. It's was nice seeing the background here advertising it all of Wednesday.

Then the it changed to hocking Master of Martial Hearts. Ah well, good times are always fleeting.

Geez Viz, way to take my money this week: One Piece, Torkio, Ouran, and Sakura Hime.
Also getting Princess Knight and Only Serious About You, and Animal Land and Gon for my sister's Christmas present. Wow that set me back, good thing I was planning ahead for the sudden influx.

I managed to nab the final volume of Squid Girl two days before it's release date! Lucky me! Very Happy

Just the third Utena set for me. Was shipped out earlier this week.
I'm waiting for Squid Girl to hit blu-ray before I pick that one up.

I can confirm that part 2 is out. I saw it at Barnes and Noble last night. Smile
