Extra Merchandise

This is all of the extras for the Bakemonogatari DVD release. There aren't any more for this length of time but I think this is still plentiful. :)

Then, we have Serial Lain Experiments and Umineko merchandising.

Now, here are the manga releases. It's a long section.

@takashichea: There are some videogames and a console that we left out. I'll take care of that immediately via PM and I'll note you on it as soon as I'm done.

Thanks! I combined everything into one blog.

Post by Bigheart711 (4,416 posts) See mini bio Level 21

Sorry! I got the season wrong. It's being released February 2013 (Winter).

@takashichea: Double Crap! I forgot this wasn't the PM about the Winter 2013 trailers. Anyway, we did a very good job here, but I'll handle the banner next time we have to do a blog like this again. @__@

I don't understand. What's being released February 2013?

Oh yeah, you can handle the banner. I suck at making them. Huh, the blue Quick Picks is hard to see.

who ever made this i hope ur making money. u did a very nice job on this.

Post by takashichea (16,517 posts) See mini bio Level 25


We don't make money. This blog serves to promote the industry by getting fans to buy stuff legally to support the guys and gals working hard on bringing manga and anime.


Thanks. BigHeart711 did the anime while I did the manga. You should check out the winter trailers.

@takashichea: doing something like this for free means you have mad heart and i respect that and know that their are people out there that appreciate your hard work.
