Houreki said:
Jack Frost? is that the same as the movie?


No, it's nothing like Rise of the Guardians. Jack Frost is a manwha by Jin-Ho Go that's similar to Hellsing.

Summary: It’s Noh-A’s first day at Amityville High School, and her reception is chilly to say the least. Brutal might be a better description! Decapitated but not dead (or is she??), Noh-A quickly realizes that nothing is as it appears at Amityville High where paranormal creatures battle for supremacy. Caught in the crossfire, Noh-A may have to rely on the unlikely (and possibly unreliable) aid of the most sinister student at Amityville… the deadly Jack Frost![/quote

ohh, thanks

Is Jin Roh just on DVD? Or is it also available for blu ray?

Wow, I'm surprised Persona 3 got a western release so soon, with a LE no less. I'm hyped.

Going to keep waiting for Aniplex to decide to sub Mirai Fukuin...

Persona 3 the Movie: #1 Spring of Birth Blu-ray

cant wait for the download link lol

I'm just now beginning the Aria series so too early to tell on that. I'll definitely get Fairy Tail at some point along with Part 9 and future installments. I might get Haganai Next having already bought the first season, although I really didn't care for it as much so if I do it probably won't be for awhile. That looks like everything for this month.

Lupin III: Hemingway Papers is getting a release? Awesome. Looking forward to that.

Oh cool Hakkenden? Didn't know it was licensed. I'll keep that in my mind. I really enjoyed it so I might buy it some day.
