This week, some staff members who shall remain nameless would rather have a Game of Thrones podcast then talk about silly Japanese cartoons all day. But alas, we are Japanator, not DaenerysTargaryenator, so we must perse... | subscribe
There's plenty to sink your teeth into, readers. If you haven't already bought from Nippon Ichi before, they've got a slew of box sets coming out this week. That includes non-special editions of Kimi ni Todoke and Natsume's Book of Friends, which are well worth your money. Otherwise, you might consider picking up season two of AKB0048, if you're into the whole idol industry.
On the manga side, there's plenty to walk away with this week as well. Most importantly, though, is the latest volume of Toradora! -- the series I'll never stop jamming down your throat. There's also new volumes of A Centaur's Life and Voice Over! Seiyu Academy. The last special item is the debut of the full color edition of Dragon Ball -- just in case Akira Toriyama hasn't taken enough of your money yet.
Check out the full list of releases after the jump, and let us know what you're buying in the comments.
It's a short week of releases, folks. So short, in fact, that there's not much point putting the full list after the jump. We've got one anime release worth highlighting in Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan, and a whopping three manga releases.
One of them is the ever-popular Attack On Titan, while the others are Kingdom Hearts: 358/2 and From the New World -- the latter of which is a much sexier version than the anime and is worth your time to check out. Here are the links for all of them:
It's a sexy week of releases, readers. Project-H has a few titles to debut for you, including The Tale of Boobs and Nyotai-ka!. Add to that the latest volume of Wolfsmund and you have some titles that you'd better cover up if you plan on reading on the train.
On the anime side, it's worth noting that Taisho Baseball Girls has a full Blu-ray collection out this week. If you're on the fence about the series, listen to Koume sing about Tokyo. Enchanting, isn't it? I've already got my order on the way.
Check out the full list after the jump, and be sure to let us know what you're buying this week!
The holidays are over, and hopefully you got everything you wanted. Unless you've got a deep love of sweaters (like me), that probably wasn't the case. So as you return fullscreen DVDs for store credit and think of what to spend that money on, we've got a few suggestions.
New this week are the latest box sets of Patlabor and Yuruyuri, along with omnibus volumes of Naruto, Hana-Kimi, and Zero's Familiar. All of those are worth the dough. Other items of note this week include new volumes of Kimi ni Todoke and Alice in the Country of Hearts, along with the debut of Nisekoi.
If you're more into the adult stuff, there's a re-release of Anyone You Can Do...I Can Do Better and a few other titles to look at. Don't worry, Santa's taking the week off, he won't notice your Internet history.
This is your last chance for gift ideas, folks! This week's releases will be the last major drop before Christmas. Next week's releases, on Christmas Eve, will barely contain anything, if past years are any sort of predictor.
So go out and buy already!
There are a number of great volumes of manga to get, including a hardcover omnibus of High School of the Dead, the latest Gundam: The Origin, and a new volume of Dorohedoro. On the anime side, we've got box sets of Pet Girl of Sakurasou and the Blue Exorcist movie.
Let us know what you're picking up, and what you hope is in your stocking this year!
The snow is falling and schools and businesses are closed all along the Northeast, which means it's the perfect time to curl up with a cup of tea and your credit card. Tuesday is here, and that means there's anime and manga to buy!
The two most important items on my list are the latest volumes of Wandering Son and Knights of Sidonia. Both are great titles that are well-worth your money, and I'll keep shoving them down peoples' throats until they're at the top of the Bookscan charts.
On the anime side, box sets of Btooom!, Gatchaman, and Kokoro Connect's OVA are some of the highlights. Be sure to check out the full list of releases after the jump and let us know what you're getting!
Are you ready to roll out and conquer some hearts? The ladies from Girls und Panzer are! Box sets are out for Girls und Panzer, Aquarion Evol, and Zatch Bell to satisfy all your anime-watching desires.
On the manga side of things, notable titles include Fairy Tail and the latest iteration of Dance in the Vampire Bund. Viz's Voice Over! Seiyu Academy is a relatively new title that you can take a shot on and see if it fits into your wheelhouse.
Otherwise, we're looking at a pretty typical list of Viz releases and repackages in both manga omnibuses and anime box sets. Let us know what you're getting in the comments!
Sometimes I don't know what to do with all the press releases in my inbox! Luckily, Section23's announcement of release dates is sparkly & fresh and caught my eye! Their latest listing of upcoming anime for March features a pretty big variety of titles, from the recently announced Nadia to Maria Holic Alive! to Mardock Scramble Third Exhaust. Nadia in particular is slated for March 4th, so you won't have to wait long at all!
This is only the March lineup, so don't get too concerned if you don't see a certain show here. If you want all the details though, they're right below. Here's the full list of the rest of the release dates and titles:
Are you ready for some feasting? There'll be plenty to stuff yourself with this week at the dinner table, and if you're not the type to spend all of Thanksgiving watching football, then start working on your backlog. This week's slate of releases is a light one. On the anime side, the Highschool of the Dead OVA and part one of Accel World are the big releases.
The manga side, meanwhile, features new volumes of Attack on Titan and Sailor Moon Short Stories. That's about it for the really exciting stuff.
So take these holidays to enjoy yourself, your family, and the sweet bliss of consumerism when Black Friday rolls around. And if someone asks you to root for football: just say "no" to the Green Bay Packers.
It's been a long wait, but here we are: finally a new volume of Yotsuba! is out for us all to enjoy. It pairs perfectly with Ben's numerous Yotsuba strips. If only we could print those without getting into a massive copyright violation, we'd all be able to retire forever.
Also worth noting on the manga side of things are new volumes of Soul Eater, Sickness Unto Death, and BTOOOM!. The latest Haruhi novel hits the shelves this week, and on the anime side Sword Art Online is the release to pay attention for.
Check out our full list of titles after the jump, and let us know what you pick up.
FFX | X-2 will be sold in standard and limited editions. The limited edition release will include an exclusive artbook featuring concept art and notes, which looks pretty snazzy from the picture, now with completely re-done packaging.
You can already pre-order your copy, and probably from your preferred retailer. Now that you know how (officially) long you've got to wait, how excited are you to get this in your grabby hands? Oh, you need some convincing? See the new trailer that's been released with the street date below:
