The Right Stuf International News

The Right Stuf International is a anime/manga company
| |

I needed to take a break from my job and my work on Anime Vice. Today, I receive the first part of my order from Right Stuf.

There was a Kondansha sale off at Right Stuf when I was doing Quick Picks last month. I'm not much of a big spender due to the wage I earn working at the family business. While I tend to buy manga that I'm familiar with, I didn't see much new titles that grabbed much attention excluding Vinland Saga. I previewed first before buying, but it was too late when the sale off ended midnight. I ended buying Vinland Saga at Anime Expo via Kodansha booth.

The Missions of Love books are for my little sister who loves that series. Haven't read it yet. It doesn't seem like the type of manga I'm into. I bought three Attack on Titan manga: Attack on Titan No Regrets, Before the Fall, and Junior High. I used to read Attack on Titan manga via Crunchyroll's simulpub before I decided to postpone it for the anime's return. I didn't buy new volumes since I'm paying for the subscription. I'm excited to read manga in physical copy since I usually read online. I'm curious to see Levi's back story as well finding out what's Before the Fall is all about. Junior High seems fun to read after two drama heavy Attack on Titan books.

Purpose of this thread is to not show off manga collection or what I bought. Part of this is promote buying manga and anime legally to promote the industry and to encourage folks to show off their collection, too. I write the Quick Picks every week, telling everyone to not resort to piracy if possible. You have folks in Anime Vice outside of the states where licensing of anime and manga titles are scarce or not available. Giving them hope and motivation to support the industry. Also, this is part of 's project called "My Collection." Back then, I was asking my teammates for new ideas to boost the forum activity. Kelleth suggests doing blogs showcasing collection of anime, manga, and memorabilia. Kelleth loves showing off his collection on Twitter. I haven't done a proper blog for that project.

Happy 4th of July, everyone! Welcome to the July edition! I'm going to post the merchandise for the first two weeks, and I'll update next week.

Note: This is a temporary banner since BigHeart711 and Sora are professionals who are a lot better at creating banners than me.

Quick Picks

Welcome to the Quick Picks! I'm covering last month since we're behind. I don't have partner here since he's busy. Don't worry, he'll finish the anime merchandising, and you'll be seeing his commentary on the front page.

As for manga releases, we got a few omnibuses for classic series such Trigun, Negima, and Love Hina. In the Viz Media department, we got all of the Holy Shonen Trinity titles, One Piece, Bleach, and Naruto, with some 3 in 1 editions. They're like omnibuses. Fans of the recent fall anime 2012 series, Btooom, we got the first Btooom volume 1 coming to North America on February 26.

Please enjoy the blog and support the mangakas and their staffs.

Note: This is a temporary blog. I'm behind in posting Quick Picks on the front news with my partner. I'm sorry about that.

Hey Vicers! I haven't been active recently but I do have a lot of content to cover (as you will see in these videos). I've got some material ready to be recorded so I'll get to it soon. But I didn't want to take up a bunch of blogs so I'm putting all my recent purchase videos in this blog. Some of it is from RightStuf and some is from Amazon. Enjoy!

I didn't have as much to show off since some of the items are parts of orders that were unavailable for earlier videos. But I still counted them as separate buys since they came from different places. Enjoy what I got and look forward to another video in about a week since I just made a RightStuf order. Oh, and the hentai manga I bought is not on AV. It's called Hatsu Inu.
