Looks like it's time to bring the ol' Quick Picks segments back after the hiatus left by sora_thekey. Me and Takashichea will be taking his place, but I'll mainly post the articles. I also want to replace the current QP banner with a new one as soon as I get myself situated for next week.
For this week, we did have a conversation about some of the upcoming titles, but it turns out that both of us was too ahead of our times with the releases for both Sailor Moon (Manga) vol. 6's re-release (Early July) and the third graphic novel for Avatar: The Last Airbender's story. K-On's 2 Season has been released on Blu-Ray and DVD for North America and StaciWi of Screened seems to have taken some interest in the show altogether. Also, the fact that I haven't noticed the re-releases of the Tenjou Tenge manga until recently still haunts me. @__@ A bit more on what Taka thought before moving on...
Due to PenguinDust's blog on Moe Art Styles, I will try out K-On! to see the hype behind it. As for the other two, I don't think I like them since I'm not into gore or fan service. Lolopop Chainsaw reminds me of High School of the Dead, and Tenjo Tenge reminds me of Battle Vixens. (Note:The game also had some interest in multiple anime community sites, including ANN.) I'm also interested in the Blu Ray version for Fate Stay Night Unlimited Blade Works that came out on June 12. I haven't watch it yet, and I'm a fan of Fate/Stay Night and Fate/Zero anime series. It's too bad that Avatar The Last Airbender: The Promise Part 3 is coming out in October. I just bought Part 1 and 2 of the series this week.
Aw, don't feel bad, Taka. Seeing this article should cheer you up. :)
