In other release news, pre-order actually, on RightStuf you can get a gold Holo coin if you pre-order Spice and Wolf: The Complete Series Viridian Collection. The bad is that it's $38 (I think) and aren't Viridian Collections supposed to be less than that? 

I still need to finish Blassreiter.

Nothing for me this week.  Blassreiter seems like it's selling at a super low MSRP for a fairly recent 20+ episode show... although *snark alert* that's still a little high on the quality to dollar ratio.

Last week I was surprised by the lack of Viz' releases on last week's Quick Picks, but I think they made up for it this week since 90% of the manga are Viz Media books. 
Not much peeks my personal interest except probably Alice in the Country of Hearts Vol. 5- this is a manga series I have tried to read since the first volume was announced- and Bakuman Vol. 2-since last week I bought the first volume and enjoyed it a lot.-. I am also interested in S.A. Vol. 17, however, this is only because I enjoyed the anime so much.

Ugh...NOW I get the news FUNi picked up Bubblegum Crisis Tokyo 2040! Wish I wouldn't have bought it over the summer now.

@sickVisionz:

Considering the title isn't that popular and I never heard of it until I saw the first half streaming in dub on the FUNi site over a year ago. I'd say $30 is about right. If you don't want to pay that I'm sure you can find it cheaper somewhere.
