YAY! We get to release this Quick Picks article on the exact same day that the actual releases are present! <3 I hope this happens more often, even though we're still in our college classes. This week, FUNimation re-releases the blue-kimono girl I knew since the late 2000's, Zombies STILL run amok in High School, the afterstory of a series that might've made you cry returns on Blu-Ray and we wonder Where in the World is Carmen SanDiego Yuki Nagato.

Quick Rundown

Bigheart's Thoughts

I remember watching Ai Yori Aoshi years ago. It was pretty good on my book and I thought it was one of the Romance-Themed Anime that aren't on BS Island. Now I'm thinking of re-visiting Season 1 via Hulu just to refresh my memory. However, I ave yet to see Clannad's 1st season and I'm very unfamiliar with the rest of the anime listed. The Disappearance of Yuki Nagato-chan sounds pretty interesting, I read some of Black Butler and I have yet to read HSOTD and "Is This a Zombie!?". Hopefully, either of them turn out good on my end. One last thing to point out is that I doubt that "I've Seen It All" is about internet videos at all. @___@

Takashichea's Thoughts

For anime releases, I have not tried any of these, but I'm interested in Clannad because its art style looks like Cardcaptor Sakura. I watched one episode of Ai Yori Yoshi due to Dream's hint on a special wiki side project. I'm not interested in the show.

For manga releases, I'm so stoked for Is This a Zombie Vol. 2 and Soul Eater Not Vol. 1. I never heard of a spin off series of Soul Eater that has an all female main cast. I'll try to get Twilight's manga adaptation just to tease my little sister who hates the novel. My little sister would smile when she sees this blog's latest manga releases because she is fan of Black Butler and Pandora Hearts. I'll get it or borrow them from the library. Lastly, we still get more yaoi titles. I find it interesting that there is more non-yaoi hentai anime than yaoi while there are more yaoi manga than strange hentai manga. Plus, All these adult books are sold on July 25, and only Colorful Harvest is a straight hentai series.
