Looking for a marquee item on top of your Christmas list? Well, Bakemonogatari just hit shelves on Blu-ray, so you may as well start begging your parents for more of that weird cartoon porn you love so much. While you're at it, throw in the Blu-ray remastered edition of Grave of the Fireflies. I'm sure that'll make for an interesting Christmas morning after you've opened those gifts.
On the print side, there's plenty to read. The latest volumes of Bokurano and Saturn Apartments are out, along with the debut of the wonderful Thermae Romae. If you're looking to splurge, there's the six-volume box set of Sailor Moon. And let's not forget about the latest Haruhi novel!
There's no reason not to buy something this week. No matter what your tastes, there's something to grab. Even for all you nostalgia junkies, Tenchi in Tokyo is out in box set form, so get cracking.
