Did ANN expand into covering hentai licenses and releases? I can't remember seeing them before a few weeks ago.

Well, they weren't being released as frequently, and companies seem to be re-releasing older titles in order to make a quick buck. I haven't seen a recent hentai OVA get licensed since I was, like, 13 or 14 (4 or 5 years ago).

On that note, is it cool if I make a joke about "Classroom of Atonement" being re-titled "Classroom of A-bone-ment"? Wait. I just did.

AEsir is re-releasing Parasite Dolls for $20, you can get the ADV release for as little as $5 still.

As soon as you say that, I go on Amazon and look at this release, then notice that in the "Customers Also Bought" section, "Hooligan" and "Classroom of Atonement" were on there. Guess somebody looked at this list and went to town ;P

Today I got my order for No.6 (blu-ray) and This Boy Can Fight Aliens (blu-ray), though I don't see them listed.

Perhaps they're not listed for this week because you got them early? My notes show that (at least when they were originally listed) they seem to have had release dates of 21 Aug and 14 Aug, respectively... They should show up on the next two lists. B&M stores might still respect those dates, but the online ones don't much care.

You haven't noticed before? ^^;

Online stores care plenty. They are just trying to anticipate shipping delays, so be happy the cat-sleds didn't take 3-weeks... this time.
