Today's acquisitions (4th Mar 2013)

Although it's the first delivery of March, it will also be my last delivery until April unless my outstanding manga order at Amazon UK ships out or I get exceptionally lucky with postage times for the next Eiyuu No Kai newsletter.


The best item in today's delivery is the special edition DVD of Butai Sengoku Basara 3 ~Setouchi Kyouran~. I'm looking forward to watching it as soon as possible. The slipcase is thick and nicely weighty with the title embossed in foil on the spine. Of course, once I've seen it I won't have any new Sengoku Basara stage plays to look forward to until the next one comes out on DVD towards the end of the year...

Everything else in the picture is manga. Samura Hiroaki's short story compilation Emerald And Other Stories should be good; I'm a huge fan of Blade Of The Immortal so this book might tide me over during the long wait between each volume. I'd missed a couple of volumes of Sayonara, Zetsubou-sensei because the 'local' comic shops no longer carry it now Kodansha has taken over from Del Rey. The other two books are Maiden Rose (Hyakujitsu No Bara) by Inariya Fusanosuke. The price on Amazon was starting to get silly; when I saw that United Publications had it in their clearance sale it was impossible to resist.
