Quick Picks for 4/19/11

Geo returns once again to let us know what's worth our hard earned cash this week.

The lists this week are short but the content is notable.


 20th Century Boys
 20th Century Boys
One of the biggest manga titles released nowadays is 20th Century Boys. This Urasawa book series' fourteenth volume is out this week containing the tale of how the entire planet grieves over the death of their beloved Friend. Another notable manga mention is volume 3 of House of Five Leaves, the book known for its originality in art style.

On a previous Quick Picks post I mentioned that I was interested in the Clanned franchise. The shojo anime captured my interest with its sleek animation style. The chick-flick-themed story continues in the release of Clanned After Story, also out this week.

 Darker Than Black
 Darker Than Black
Do you like mystery and out of the ordinary fantasy stories? Then, you should pick up Darker Than Black Season 1. As you must already know, Tom Pinchuk's Watch and Learn articles proved that a lot of you "vicers" are into this anime.

To end my picks, I have to mention the anime that I want to get into, but I have not done so yet. The uncut release of One Piece Season 3: Part 5 is something I want to buy. I just need to acquire Seasons 1, 2 and parts 1-4 of Season 3 before I obtain this one.

What will you "pick"?
