My daughter has accused me of stalking both Eric Stuart and Illych Guardiola when buying/trying new anime... Moi? Hey, is it my fault most of the anime I've been attracted to are produced/distributed by ADV,Geneon, or MediaBlasters? Or that those anime dub production companies tend to use the same voice actors over and over....

Okay, I'll admit that I picked up "This Ugly Yet Beautiful World" because I thought I recognized the voice of one of the main characters from ADV's dub of "Saiyuki" -- Yup, it was Brenden, all right, but that alone wasn't enough to entice me into buying the subsequent DvDs when the storyline left me going, 'meh'. And yeah, one of the reasons I was so antsy about my "Descendants Of Darkness" DvDs was because I'd learned that both Dan Green and Eric Stuart were VA's, but I'd become enamored of the manga before I even heard about the anime.... But honest-to-kamisama, I had NO idea that "le Chevalier D'eon" had both David Matragna (Sanzo, ADV Saiyuki) and Illych (Gojyo, ADV Saiyuki; Krad, DNAngel) in major roles.

Y'know, I could just as easily accuse my daughter of 'stalking' Dan Green and Greg Ayres, since they turn up in a lot of HER anime collection, or my husband of perv-ing on Chris Patton and Luci Christian for the same reason.....

But we DO have a lot of fun playing 'Name that Voice Actor' when watching our dubbed anime; I spotted 'Joey' from YGO in "Samauri Deeper Kyo" the other night....

Add "Mirage of Blaze" to the 'what was I thinking when I bought this?' stack of anime -- unless it gets REAL interesting REAL fast, the entire box set is going to the used DvD store for credit next weekend.

Used DvDs

Used Game/DvD stores are a god-send when your budget is tight, especially if the local shops handle anime! They're few and far between, unless you're into DragonBall Z or GX or watever the latest version is, but occasionally there are gems.... I picked up most of the third season of Rurouni Kenshin used, and approx. half of 'Legend of Kyoto' thanks to some generous person liquidating their anime collection. My husband scored 'Full Metal Panic' (1st Series) the same way.

Sometime, tho', you gotta do the math.... one of our local used stores has two of the Samurai X trilogy dvds, 'Trust' and 'Betrayal', each priced at $14.99 (call it $32 for the pair, with tax). However, BEST BUY has the complete set, thin pack, priced at $38.... Likewise, the Used shop had KH2 for $40 whereas BB had it NEW for $48; throw in the $10 off coupon for being a BB frequent shopper, and well, guess who got my daughter's hard earned cash? Guess which merchant will probably make a sale of SamuraiX once I have some money to spare? Despite my current disatisfaction with their arbitrary anime inventory methods....

Y'know, I see lots of copies of 'CRASH', and 'Capote' and other recent Oscar Award nominated movies at the Used DvD stores, but I have yet to see ONE discarded copy of 'Brokeback Mountain'..... coincidence? I don't think so!

Originally I'd negotiated an hour for lunch last year so that I could run home and make sure Orion wasn't keeling over from heat stroke during the summer (and haul him into the shower and hose him down if he was over-heating), and to keep him company and shove pills down his throat the last couple few months.... With him gone, I did think about cutting back to a half-hour but today I'm kinda glad I didn't, because it gave me enough time to run over to the nearest Best Buy and grab me 'Narnia' and 'Brokeback' over lunch. YES! Who's da bomb?!!

No 'Loveless' #2, or 'Burst Angel' #6, tho' -- Daughter has been nagging for BA for the past two weeks, and I thought since I saved so much money on "NEW RELEASE TUESDAY" at Best Buy today, I'd indulge her.... oh well, there's a BB on the other side of the river; Husband and I are headed that way tomorrow evening, gonna see if B&N has 'Cantarella' #1. If not, there's always Iowa City next weekend.

Proof I've been reading waay too much BBM fic and Narnia-fic: I keep getting this mental image of Jack waiting in Aslan's Country (which looks suspiciously like Wyoming), Aslan's keeping him company, and I have a feeling they're talking about Ennis.....

(*Hides* .... don't lynch me....)

Actually, not as bad as I'd originally thought, because Husband picked up 'Ah!My Goddess #4' and 'Maburaho!' #7 DVDs over the weekend, but it's still gonna be painful. Still debating on if I really want the 2-disc 'Chronicles of Narnia' set as opposed to the less expensive single disc edition; I suppose it depends on if 'Loveless' #2 is in the shelf, and if there is a 2-disc special edition of 'Brokeback Mountain'.... if so, CoN:LWW can wait.

Did I mention lusting after the 'Mirage of Blaze' thin-pack?

And that's not including the manga: I especially want to get my hands on 'Cantarella' #1 -- supernatural/historical set in Rennaissance Italy starring the Borgias -- because I picked up #2 by accident at a 'buy4, get 5th free' sale last month, and now am totally in love with Chiaro, Rennaisance street punk/assassin, and Cesare Borgia's conscience! Also looking for 'Ghost Hunt' #3, 'YGO:Millenium World' #3, and 'YGO:Duelist' #14.

And thank you, God, that 'Gunlock' isn't due out until the end of the month....
