Panty and Stocking are finally on DVD, but Kirino, Chibi-Moon, a Bunny Girl and a Cat-Girl (both from the one shocking series that NEVER got away) seem to have stowed away this week. Me and Takashichea talked about those releases and one of us are chronocling these and the other past anime and manga releases in two seperate lists. Now, let's get the [BLEEP] back to business.

Quick Rundown

Bigheart's Thoughts

I had fun watching the subbed version of panty and Stocking and while checking out the two episodes of the dubbed version, I was having a lot of fun with it once again. I intended to buy the set, but it looks like I'll have to save up. Speaking of which, I'm still finishing up Sailor V and Volume 6 of the Sailor Moon manga gets an North American Re-Release. I seriously need to catch up. T_T As for Cool Devices, I came across that hentai over a year ago, and I thought it wasn't as vile as some other H-Series. However, it was one of the most frightening due to a few torture scenes between episodes. It was claimed as the worst thing that was animated by many reviewers back then, so their end of that bargain must have been far worse than mine. I bet those poor reviewers still might not want to look back on it anytime soon since it's gotten another multiple volume re-release.

Takashichea's Thoughts

I haven't seen Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt, and I know for sure I don't want to try out Cool Devices. I'm more into smut not hardcore H stuff. For Sailor Moon, I'm more familiar with the anime, and I haven't read the manga. I definitely buy it or checked it out from the library. I'm not a strong fan like you BigHeart711, but I had some favorite characters, Sailor Neptune, Sailor Mars, and Tuxedo Mask. Fairy Tail Volume 20 is the end of the Nirvana arc, and I'm excited to read it.

Has anybody watched El Cazador? I have been wondering about that one for a while, Also LOL @Takashichea's comments about Cool Devices:)

@Sonata:

That title screams bondage at me. So far our Quick Picks cover more Yaoi than regular hentai series.

@Sonata: I remember watching the dub of El Cazador and I thought it was good. Don't know if anyone else did, however. :(

This article happens to be viewed better in Blog Form for some computer browsers that can't seem to stretch that much.

@Sonata: I've only seen an episode but If you're familiar with "Bee Train " stuff you know kind of what to expect from it; story of a couple of contract killers much like noir or phantom.

@takashichea: Actually the first episode only had the crazy bondage in it(If I remember right) But its still pretty hardcore all around. Its mostly a bunch of short stories dealing with various people.  
 
@Bigheart711
That's good to hear and for that price I'm soldXD

@Sonata:

I tried Binbogami Ga! I loved it because it was Gintama and Medaka box (random humor, parodies of other shows, and fan service). Sakura and Momiji make a great comedic duo.

@Bigheart711:

Good job, partner! Nice pick for the merchandise. I haven't tried Oreimo. I compared the blog and forum version of this thread, and it's the same thing. I guess it works for some of us.

@shels: Gotcha, I liked Noir so I would like this as well. Thanks for the input:) 
 
@takashichea: I love the parodies. There is a pretty good one of Rosario & Vampire in the second episode,

@Bigheart711:

Nice banner! You have better skills than I do. I need to learn how to use GIMP than Paint since I can't paste text on image well with Paint.

Oh yeah, Mahoromatic: Automatic Maiden, Mahoromatic: I'm Home (OVA), and Shugo Chara-Chan! wiki pages are added. We got everything linked in this blog. Whoo!

@Sonata:

I love Rosario Vampire series and Binbogami ga!, too.

I am really behind on the Fairy Tail manga (and 5 eps behind on the anime).

Will eventually get to getting and reading more of Negima.

Oreimo is pretty funny. Second season is coming.

Cool Devices is not a hentai I've felt like watching. I can barely stand the torture and S&M of Night Shift Nurses (but I like the animation).

@Sonata:

I watched 2 eps of Cazador and didn't like it. But I tend to have a problem with series with female leads. Otaku Review likes the series though.

Did anyone noticed Shugo Chara-Chan! manga has the same colors as the Powerpuff Girls: Blue (Bubbles), Pink (Blossom), and Green (Buttercup)?
