Damn, they got that volume 5 out early, it’s supposed to come out on the tenth.

I know, the online anime store I usually buy DVD's from said they wouldn't get it until the tenth too. Oh well, guess I'll spread some jealousy while I can. Big Grin

Darn it. I'm only on Vol. 3 so far, but at least I'm getting there. I heard it gets better in the later episodes, so....

Yeah, I also heard Aug. 10 as well.

I bought the first two volumes of Evangelion, the old old versions. I can get them from on line sellers for less than 7 bucks a piece. I want to watch Evangelion but as of yet I'm not a big fan of it.

And I recently got the last volume of Haibane Renmei, haven't watched it yet though. Volume 3 was incredible, esspecially that second episode. Wow.

I'm not going to be able to watch anymore anime out of the blue for a while now. I bought Paradise Kiss (all five volumes) last week and I've got the Babylon 5 complete movie collection to get on the 17th of the month. And there's no way I'm going to survive that one for less than 55 bucks. ::sigh:: well, at least it'll packed to the gills with audio commentaries. That's always nice.

I wish Big O came with some audio commentaries. If Bandai released season one of Big O remastered and with audio commentaries, I'd buy it.

About Exile Vol 5: LOL yeah go ahead gloat, I wish I had it.

About Exile Vol 3: is that the one with the auction ep? That’s my favorite so far.

About Renme: So good isn’t it, it ends well too.

About Eva: I think if you keep watching you will like or at least appreciate it for some of its originality.

About Big O vol 4: I tried to order it and it was out of stock at deep discount DVD—good sign for those pressing for more Big O.

And that’s About it...

There is a rather old and dated thread that was created by Shredder that exists. Hasnt been posted on in awhile, maybe the mods can combine the two or it is:

I recently purchased Big O Season II Volume 4, and thats been it on the anime side of things...

[Edit: Thanks, threads merged. --Krang]

The Infinite Ryvius Limited Edition Box Set. It's a pretty good show but I'd have to say the music its strongest point. I wish they had put an OST in the set. Frown

I just moved to a new town and visited their local comic book shop. They rent a lot of anime DVD's & videos.

Also, MUCH to my joy - they were beginning a clearance sale of extra/old anime videos and DVD's for ONLY $1 each!!!!!!! Shocked Big Grin Shocked Big Grin Pleased

So I shelled out 30 bucks. Here's what I got:

-Patlabor Movies 1 & 2 (videotape)

-Inu-Yasha DVD's - 13 of them(!) - containing episodes 1-thirty something and some in the forties.

-Kiki's Delivery Service movie (video)

-Blue Submarine videos 1-4 (complete)

-Record of Lodoss War videos 1-6 (complete)

-A.D. Police videos 1 & 2

-Heat Guy J DVD 1

-Yukikaze DVD 1

Most of them were videos, but for a buck a piece, they were nice bargains! I hope to watch them sometime in the next year or two!

(Oh yeah: And I also bought the newest Last Exile DVD - #5 - yay!!!!)
