That is just awesome :).

Yay for Nodame and FMA too. I'm not surprised about the Moyashimon limited edition. From what i recall that special edition came with a Oryzae UFO type plushie.


It did and most stores sold out with 1-2 days. I went to get it at my local Kinokuniya the day it came out and they were already all gone

FMA manga releases are so far apart in the US... Vol. 16 came out in March, and Vol. 17 is coming in October. >.<

Oh well, yay for #2!

I'm happy Mahou Sensei Negima is up there :P and as expected for one piece...

As for the light novels.
Zero no Tsukaima, Full Metal Panic! and Spice and Wolf :P Nice...

P.S. i think you misspelled Tonadora, it should be Toradora.


Oops. thanks Friendlysoul. Now I know why I made the mistake. I confused it with Tonagura!.
