Question: Am I bad luck? Because as Tim and I realized this week, whenever I ask for something to happen in an anime, it never ever happens, even if it would be self-evidently awesome and the writers are nuts for not going wi... | subscribe
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 ...
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:
Brad is still in Ireland as we speak, so I'll be covering Releases of the Week for him today. While there aren't that many new titles coming out this week, people can look forward to the return of Akira! This time around, FUNimation is including both dubs of the film, along with a bunch of neat extras that will make any Akira fan explode! Best of all, the movie arrives just in time for its 25th Anniversary-- Happy Birthday, Akira!
To those who are more interested in reading things, Fullmetal Alchemist gets another omnibus volume, and Vertical releases a helpful book that teaches people how to make sushi in the comfort of their own home. Come to think of it, all of this talk about food is making me hungry right now. If anything, I'll have to add Sushi Simplicity to my list of things to buy.
At the end of the day, there are a few notable things within this small roster of new releases. If you're planning on buying any of the items from the list, be sure to let us know in the comments!
Only a month after the release of their fourth studio album LEVEL3, here we have a new music video from Perfume, “Sweet Refrain”. The song itself feels a bit oddly relaxing and yet absolutely the sort of tune that I would expect from Perfume. What I am really digging is the accompanying video. There is just something about the whole clock theme that really works.
“Sweet Refrain” will be officially released November 27 in Japan and can currently be heard as the opening theme to the drama Toshi Densetsu no Onna.
That's right, giant robot fans: you've got plenty to celebrate this week. Not only is there Gundam Unicorn out, but new discs of Patlabor as well! On the anime side of things, there are also box sets of Fate/Zero and Hetalia World Series to draw your wallet out from its shell.
On the manga side, there is a metric ton of manga to read. One Piece has a 23-volume box set. A new Alice in the Country Of title, as well as the first volume of A Centaur's Life are on the shelves. The latest omnibuses for Dance in the Vampire Bund, Skip Beat!, and Air Gear all hit the shelves, too.
There's a ton to check out, and plenty that's worth your time. Let us know what you pick up in the comments below.
Are you looking for some manga? Because this week's releases has more than you can shake a stick at. Attack on Titan has a new volume dropping, which means it's time to BUY BUY BUY. Also worth checking out this week is Wolfsmund, which is simultaneously rage-inducing and utterly engaging. When I picked up the first volume, I plowed through it with the rage of a thousand suns.
Then instantly demanded the second volume.
Also of note are titles such as Black Butler and K-On!: High School. You could be a doll and pick up the latest volumes of Air Gear and Higurashi, helping those publishers with extremely long-running titles.

If you had asked me after my first weeklong obsession with a Kyary Pamyu Pamyu video if I thought it would keep on happening with each new video, I would have said no. Oh, how naïve I was. Suffice to say, here we go again. Mottai Night Land is a catchy tune with a video that must be seen.
There is magic in these videos. And a few surprises this time. My goodness. And then a few more. I could sit here and tell you about it, but I feel like going into it without knowing anything was the perfect way to do so. If you do want a spoiler of sorts: Strawberries.
It's another light week of releases, but at least there are some worthwhile box sets to suck up all of your money.
First up on the anime side are box sets for Kokoro Connect, Princess Knight, and Di Gi Charat. If you're feeling rich this week, you can buy a mega box set containing seasons 1-4 of Digimon. Also worth noting is the release of Blood-C: The Last Dark.
On the manga side, we've got a new volume of Alice in the Country of Joker and the first part of Vertical's Summer Wars manga.
Like I said, it's not a ton, but take a look at everything after the jump. Be sure to let us know what you're getting this week!
It's a great week to pick up some manga. If you're looking for some high quality stories, think about dipping your toes in the water with either Knights of Sidonia or Flowers of Evil. The new Dive in the Vampire Bund spinoff makes its debut, alongside an omnibus for Uzumaki.
On the anime side, box sets for Campione! and Eureka Seven: AO hit shelves, while you absolutely must pick up the Blu-ray of Royal Space Force: Wings of Honneamise. It's one of the most beautiful titles I've watched.
