I already got FMA: Brotherhood Part 5 a week early. I pre-ordered it a while back.

Shoot, Baka and Test. :3 Too bad I don't have any cash~ Otherwise I'd be picking up some Haruhi-chan as well. T.T

You can't honestly expect them to give a shit when nobody bought it right?

When cheap to license ecchi anime make big bucks and costly anime doesn't turn profits, which would you pick to make money?

we need more good stuff


We need the companies to stop bringing in only half or less of anime series, like they did with D.Gray-Man and Higurashi.

Agreed. Personal opinion of the quality of Higurashi's dub aside, if you're going to start dubbing a series, finish dubbing it. Especially when it is still possible to get the right to do so.

Yay! Natsume Yuujinchou and Bakuman! All the other things, well, not interested, though maybe in the future when I get around to seeing them.

I am somewhat relieved that VIZ is releasing Tenjo Tenge in its original format. Except, by the time they finally release it as such, I've lost a lot of interest in it than I had initially when I first read it.....


What?! They'd better show the manga ALL the way Oh! Great made it. I'm beginning to lose trust in Viz on manga since they censored a scene in Rosario+Vampire II manga.

And once again, I'm broke ;\
