I very much plan on picking up Bloody Monday and Cage of Eden but for some reason, I am having to wait 'til November to get them in the UK.

Kodansha seem to have prolonged the time between American and English release dates, as it is usually less than a month for all other publishers. The more weird thing is it isn't consistent. Fairy Tail v. 13 came out 1 month after America but I still have to wait 'til November to get v. 14 (3 months after America). I guess it does give me more time to pick up other titles...

Definitely picking up Animal Land (mainly for my sister, who is both a future veterinarian and a Zatch Bell fan).

I gave the first volume of both Bloody Monday and Cage of Eden a try, and couldn't find myself enthused much at all. I'm not terribly into the survival genre. Bloody Monday just had to much hacker-fu for me to take seriously (and the annoyingly over-sexualized female villain, but that one I would have put up with if the story was more interesting).

I suppose that may be one good reason for having releases 3 months later than North America, I can get the reviews come through before I purchase them. Maybe I will look further into them beforehand. Hopefully they will be reviewed on here

The Shin Megami Port is fantastic, highly recommended.

Though the 3D isn't amazing compared to other titles.

Excited to finally get the second Eden movie, along with the first one. Would like to get that Kenshin BD, but it is sooooo not worth it Laughing .

Checked out Bloody Monday at B&N this week and while some of its plot devices were horridly cliche the overall plot and most of the characters were compelling enough for me to keep an eye out for vol. 2.
