Good Afternoon Folks:
@Wreck and @Apollon have given me permission to create a thread they will 'Sticky' within this sub-forum, so that we may discuss and announce, any anime materiel that may be deemed of interest.
As the title suggests, we'd love to hear about;
- your recent purchases (including great sales others would be interested in)
- any news on pre-orders or titles going OOP forthcoming, and
- of course your views and points of interest wrt titles old, new and hoped for!

Pictures are of course welcome, as are links to titles available for sale. All within the bounds of existing forum rules, of course.
*note: Trades and sales would not be appropriate here, as there is already a very healthy Trade Forum for all subjects.

I know there are some very knowledgeable anime fans at HDN and we very much look forward to seeing your posts!
(also, spread the word please).

As I am not a Moderator, please feel free to contact @Apollon with any issues you may have regarding this thread.

Thanks for stopping by!

Next, I'd like to mention some forthcoming titles that I have on order;

- Basilisk The Ouka Ninja Scrolls, Pt-1 & 2 by Funimation
- Devil's Line (PE), by Sentai
- Petshop Of Horrors, by Sentai (note: it will be SD on Blu-ray)
- Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, Set 4 (LE), by VIZ

That should put my "to watch" pile a little higher, heh. ;)

I'm sure many are aware but if some that may have interest are not, The Manga that the anime series 'Berserk' was based on, is being released by Dark Horse, in glorious Leatherbound HC's starting... well NOW.
Available for purchase at both Amz.com and Amz.ca and probably a variety of other locations.
The first volume is released, with Vol-2 scheduled for July '19 and the Vol-3 in Nov '19.
As Kentaro Miura has just released the 40th manga of the series, we should expect ~14 HC's I suppose.
Here's a pic of Vol-1; :)

Edit; Just wanted to add, these books are large.
Below is a pic of my Vol-1 laying beside two Blu-ray collections (Seraph Of The End Pt-1 & 2, recommended.)
It came from Amazon in a sturdy box and it's shrink-wrapped for added protection. :happy:

So today I have a question for my anime loving friends;
I am a big fan of anime shows with vampire themes and have a fair amount.
I'm putting thought toward a new one for which the Blu is up for pre-order:
"Devil's Line".
Have any by chance watched it on streaming service or other means and if so what are your thoughts?
I'm not big on rom-coms.
I lean more toward the Blood and Hellsing franchises than say...Rosario and Vampire, heh.
Ta! :)

Hi Folks!
So Amz.com finally has the Elfen Lied Steel up for pre-order.
Price is a bit steep ($80usd) but I feel confident that will drop some before release.
It's quite attractive and worth considering, I think.
*note: the link will come in handy as, if you just type in "Elfen Lied" on Amazon.com's page, it did not show?
