Who needs reviews when I can just talk about the crap I buy? I’ve actually been watching a lot of “unboxing” videos on YouTube lately. Channels like Gigafrosty and BDUBTheAnimeMaster. It got me in the mood to make my own, but I don’t own a video camera. That’s probably for the best. If I learned one thing from working on my campus news program last year, I’m a terrible host.
Aquarion Parts 1 and 2– I got a really good deal on these. They were $14.99 each on Right Stuf (compared to $59.98 retail). The reason I went with these instead of the complete collection, aside from price, is the fact that FUNimation stripped the extras off the complete collection. I doubt the extras were all that interesting to begin with, but it’s the principal of the thing. Don’t strip extras! Right Stuf still has a few copies left so order it ASAP if you’re interested. Part 1 came with a really cool pencil board.
Ghost Stories: Complete Collection– I ordered this during Right Stuf’s Section 23 sale. I’ve just been looking for something funny to watch and everyone says it’s hilarious.
X-Men Volumes 3 and 4– I buy American cartoons, too. X-Men was one of my favorite shows on Fox Kids when I was little. I still have my action figures and assorted comic books. I’m glad that Disney finally decided to release this on DVD. And shocked that they’ve released this much. Volume 5 should be the last to complete this series.
There’s a few things not pictured here, such as Future Diary volume 3, Fullmetal Alchemist volume 20, and some things I picked up at Half Price Books during the sale I mentioned earlier. I didn’t feel like digging them out from the pile so that’s it for this week.
