A small, yet important announcement to make: This will likely be the last QP before the articles will be back as NEWS Articles on the front page (Thanks to Sora_TheKey). We also won't add anymore Hentai entries to the articles (which means no more nasty Yaoi and Yuri manga for neither me nor Taka to cover [Yuri Hentai dosen't bother me but, still.]).

This time, we got people fighting each other with their Personae in a tournament (that chick over there, friggin' a! >_<), someone who doesn't like their big bro at all, a chance to re-live the first Pokemon generation again and we found someone who claims to be Daniel's sister.

Quick Rundown

Bigheart's Thoughts

I haven't read either Bakuman or Ultimo, but they're the most interesting manga out of this bunch to me aside of Slam Dunk. I only tried some of Bunny Drop and One Piece so far and not any of the other anime on that list. The big one for my week is Persona 4 Arena and the game is very good! So far, I'm being more used to Teddie and Chie, but my mains aren't decided just yet! <3

Takashichea's Thoughts

It's been a long time since I read Bakuman and Ultimo. I'm behind in them since I depend the public library. Toriko and Tegami Bachi looks interesting. I should give them a try, and I had a blast reading Pokemon Adventures. The only thing that I hate about the manga version is that they skip around a lot. In this week's anime releases, I have not tried any of them. I started getting into the One Piece craze after diving into the manga since June. I probably won't have time to try the anime. I wanted to try Bunny Drop since it scored 3rd place in the Anime Vice's Best of 2011, and it reminded me of Yotsuba.

Extra Merchendise

These extras are for Persona 4 Arena (Pre-Orders) and Bunny Drop's releases. I actually got P4A via Pre-Order at GameStop and the Audio CD feels like a warm welcome since I like Yosuke and Mitsuru's themes. :)

And that's the gist for this week. See you next time! :)

If any of you don't mind, my Twitter Name is @MasterMenos while Takashichea's is also @Takashichea on Twitter. Follow us and note that it's a good thing Hentai titles weren't allowed from QP's anymore after all, otherwise, the "Hooligan" joke I was about to make would've made Kanji electrocute us. That would be very bad.

I never tried Persona 4 game or anime. This week's manga releases is big.

@takashichea: If you have a PSVita, Persona 4 Golden (HD Remake, but there are also events that cover the time skips) will be out this October, but either version is very, very good. Same goes with Persona 3 FES (Which you can download for $15 via PSN) if you haven't tried that already.

Oh, it's on the PSN. I'm planning to buy the Playstation 3 since I prefer playing on the TV than the PSP. If I knew you can play PSN on PS3, I would have got it before PSP, but my little sister wanted Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep. These things are expensive especially since I'm a Nintendo guy, and there's different models of the PSP and PS3. It's confusing, and I bought the oldest model PSP by accident. It still works which is fine with me. I need to figure out which PS3 to buy.
