Good morning Anime Vice! I know this blog is going up really early compared to the usually "Dunce Cap" episode but there will not be one today as the video was not done. Should be one ready for Friday, though. Therefore, this is a supplement blog.

As many of you probably know, Borders is closing a large number of stores due to declaring Chapter 11. 3 or 4 of of those stores were in 1 city a couple hours from where I live so I just had to go since everything was 20-40% off. A friend and I ended up going to 2 stores in the city and then another in the town where I went to college (it was not closing). Turns out that manga was only 20% off at both stores...But that did not deter us. I think my friend ( tazfreak1987) spent about $100 when I spent $200. The good part is that I ended up with 20 volumes and was able to finish 2 series. I won't bore you with the details yet so here is a pic of Saturday's purchases along with 4 volumes I bought the weekend before!



Top row: AiON Vol. 1, B.ICHI Vol. 1, Bakuman Vol. 1-3, and BioMega Vol. 1-4. Second row: Black Lagoon Vol. 1, Cat Paradise Vol. 2-5 (complete), Claymore Vol. 1, Highschool of the Dead Vol. 1, Jack Frost Vol. 1, and Soul Eater Vol. 1. Last row: Sundome Vol. 6-8 (complete) and Ultimo Vol. 1-3.

I have 12 volumes left to read from what you see above and I can't wait to talk about them in Dunce Cap for all of you! When I finish them all up I'll hand them off to tj1987 so he can read them to provide feedback as well. In the end there were a few Volume 1s I passed on for the sake of getting more volumes of series I already started. Was a little disappointed to not find volumes of a couple other series I've been eyeing. Lastly, many of you can also tell that just about all of the manga is either a Viz Media or Yen Press product. I don't mean for it to be that way but they publish pretty much every title I'm interested in. Enough from me for today so feel free to comment and I encourage y'all to check out these manga!
