Konnichiwa minna-san, I’m back with more holiday goodies for ridiculously low prices, and just like the last haul, I’ll leave links for each of the items I purchased in case you want to pick them up – Which I, of course, encourage you to do so! Let’s get to it!
Fujoshi Rumi Volumes 1-3 (manga)
This first one is a bit odd, but I guarantee there is a good explanation. This series was recommend by my good YouTuber friend Gigi from Animepalooza. I know this name has been tossed around a bit, between Lita, myself, and others, and she’s a pretty wacky fan who is not only entertaining to watch, but also incredibly down-to-earth. Go check her out!
Only the first 3 volumes of this “hidden shoujo gem” were licensed, but she assures us that even that is enough to fully enjoy the series. They were only $3 a piece, so what are you waiting for? Get the fujoshi manga you’ve been missing!
Ruin Explorers: Fam & Ihrie on DVD
Now this one was a complete impulse buy. It was only $7 for the entire 4-OVA-set with an English dub, and I thought I ought to give it some love. I realize that it is an ancient anime and that its rating on MAL isn’t quite recommendable, but hey, if I can get a nice mini adventure out of this bargain item then it’ll be worth more than gold to me 🙂
Cowboy Bebop on Blu-ray
OOh, is that everybody’s favorite space cowboy I see above? You bet your sweet arse it is! My dad (and every anime fan on planet Earth) has been praising this classic for YEARS – And now I can finally watch it! I cheated and picked this up during a hot -one-day-only Amazon.com sale for ONLY $22 (now $50), but you can pick yours up on RightStuf.com for a still highly-recommendable $30. So fork over the cash, Baby — You know you want it.
Seraph of the End Volumes 1-7 (manga)
I’m not a huge manga collector but when you see $5 a volume, you’d sh*t bricks, too. This was an instant must-have, as I am trying to force myself into this series (and the covers are convincing enough). I think the bundle was $33 or something like that, but OMG isn’t that a steal?! Probably my favorite pickup this entire season, and I cannot wait to dive into this universe 😀 I can’t remember whom it was I spoke to about picking up this series as a bundle, nor do I remember what you paid for it, but top that, haha!
Sadly, this was a limited time offer by Viz Media, so it is not available in the sale. You can still pick up each novel individually for what, $7.50? I still think that is decent for fresh, new manga.
This is everything that I will include in haul #2. I will be posting one more for those interested regarding gifts I’ll receive from my siblings (we go out of our way to spoil each other it’s terrible). As it stands, my mom went ahead and paid for all of the Seraph of the End manga, so woot! Go family! I hope you are all having a wonderful holiday season thus far, and I am curious: Have you gotten anything cool and/or anime-related that you’d like to share with us? Let us know in the comments, I’d love to know! Alright, I’m going to finish drafting a review or two, until next time, this has been
