Maoh: Juvenile Remix's fourth volume is also out this week. The book is about Ando, a high school student who takes ventriloquism to another level. He has the power to make others say out loud what he's thinking. Inukai, leader of a vigilante group in a chaotic city, meets Ando unveiling a new story. Personally, I am interested for this story, and now, I have to go find volumes one through four. 
 
 Dragon Ball Movie Collection

I really want that Dragon Ball Movie Collection. I have the 3 pack that came out a few years ago, but I might as well spend an extra $10 and get the whole collection over the single #4 film. Oh man I still need to get Seasons 3-5 too. So much!

You missed this last week so I'll just say, Gunslinger Girl Omnibus 1 came out last week and is $9.00 on Amazon. I can't wait till march when it comes over here.

I've been eyeing BioMega for a long time now but haven't gotten myself to actually take a look. Chrome Shelled is a decent anime that was fun to watch but I'm not tipped enough to purchase the series.
 
@gla55jAw:

I need Seasons 3-5, too! But that movie collection sounds tempting.

@damswedon: Thanks for pointing that out. I added to this week's list. 
@sotyfan16: Same here. Yesterday I was really close to buying the first volume of BioMega but ended up buying Genkaku Picasso instead!
