Quick Pick Faves of 2009: Anime Edition

Gia and Geekachu close out the year with some more favorite releases.

I know you'll want to be getting on to your parties-- or to setting up your parties, or perhaps even to cleaning up after your parties --so I'll keep this brief. Here's your video (with requisite apologies for my poor editing skills once more):
  
 
And here are your releases, with my picks bolded:
 

As you can see, FUNimation and Yen Press are dominating the release lists, at least in terms of sheer volume. Also, talk about a major pickup in the manga category over last week!  So, who's using their gift certificates, and what are you gonna buy with 'em?

Gah! Mono sound. Oh well, cool list.

@Konanda: Sorry, I had a lot of problems converting this stupid thing =P Next year, we'll definitely have to plan this one better. @_@

I enjoyed Blood +. It was far from my favorite series and I'm pretty much bored with anything vampire themed now, but it was entertaining. The dub work was done well. Shows what happens when you don't let the cannibals of manga/anime, VIZ, touch a property. You get good products worth buying and enjoying.

Guess i wasn't the only one to notice the mono sound. I hate it when it comes on because it always makes me freak out and think my headphones just broke again. lol

Yeah, that caught me off guard too... I almost thought my $350 Mio headphones broke...

 Genshiken 2 is a great show. Most of the Naruto / Guilty Gear fanboys loved the first season but couldn't take Genshiken 2's Yaoi episode. I thought the love triangle with  the male Genshiken crew was a laugh RIOT! Absolutely the kind of crap you'd expect to see in this sort of Otaku show. They had already covered everything from Rape games to women with old bald men fetishes. I also loved the American girls who spoke just horrible horrible English! What? Did the American girls suddenly forget how to speak English well on the trip over there?!
