    You missed a number of anime releases coming out this month, some of which are on my shopping list.

    One example is the title that I picked up this week during my weekly mall run, Transformers Japanese Collection: Super-God Masterforce.

    Picked up a few things already.
    Ordered them last Friday, but they came in today:
    One Piece Collections 3, 4 and 5.

    Then at a local shop I grabbed Hunter X Hunter Volume 6 (Only early volume they had, ironically its at the point where the remake is currently, the rest of the volumes they had was 16-21.)
    BECK: Mongolian Chop Squad Volume 10. (Seen this for a while, and just had to get it to up the remaining volumes that Tokyopop released)

    Then I grabbed the original single editions of Dragon Ball Z: Bardock: The Father of Goku and The History of Trunks. Cases were kinda grimy, but the discs and covers were fine so I just switched out the cases. (Everything from the shop was used and pretty cheap)

    GWOtaku, thanks for helping revamp the list. I forgot about The Secret World of Arriety which is coming later this month. I'll check it out when it comes on DirecTV's pay-per-view. I also forgot about Transformers: Chojin Masterforce which was just released yesterday.

    Sorry, everyone. I've been going through an awful lot since I moved to Burbank. I've been to a lot of doctor's visits in the entire month I've been here. Most likely, my upcoming cruise should help me feel better.

    On a lighter note, I managed to finally make my first trip to Burbank's Best Buy last week. Here's what I picked up:

    Code Geass: Complete Season 2

    Chrome Shelled Regios: Complete Series--
    I've been waiting to get this one! I loved seeing episode 11 where they're at the spa resort.:anime:

    I'll try and get more titles later.:D

    I got Yu-Gi-Oh! volumes 1-4, 6 and Yu-Gi-Oh! Duelist volumes 14-15. I probably should have waited a couple of more weeks before ordering them since I won't be able to read them until after my finals and I kind of feel conflicted buying something for myself during my preparation for my finals. But there were a couple of good online sales and I've been meaning to get the first seven volumes of the series for ages, especially when my collection for the original Yu-Gi-Oh! manga is pretty small.

    Hey! What a coincidence! The other half of my order from RightStuf when they were having a Viz Manga sale came in the mail last week. I got Yu-Gi-Oh! Vol. 4-6 and Bakuman Vol. 10. Now I'm just missing Vol. 3 and I'll have all the first seven volumes. I only have 4 "Duelist" volumes and 1 "Millennium World" one, though.

    Picked up The Secret World of Arrietty and Whisper of the Heart, both on Blu-ray. Target has a sale going on this week where if you buy Arrietty and either Whisper or Castle in the Sky, you get $8 off. Pretty sweet, I must say.

    I just got Pokemon Adventures Diamond Pearl and Platinum volume 5 yesterday. It's always cool when my pre-orders from Right Stuf ship early. I still wish that Viz would release the R/S arc, but this arc is getting really good too.
