Got quite a bit of stuff for Christmas this year. It mainly consisted of manga, dvd's and games. A friend of mine got me this Vizbig edition of Rurouni Kenshin volume 1. I've seen the anime, but haven't gotten around to reading the manga. Guess now's a good a time as any. Thanks Sturm.
One of my Aunt's got me these next 4 manga. xxxHolic, and Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle. I've watched the first 2 volumes of the Tsubasa anime, but haven't gotten around to finishing it. Looking forward to reading both these series.
More after the jump....
Rosario+Vampire, and Fruits Basket are two series I'm currently reading. Just finished Fruits Basket volume 7 today and wish I got paid tomorrow instead of Thursday so I could get out to the book store to get volume 8. I really enjoyed the last half of the volume about Uotani's past.
For DVD's I got Bleach season 2, and Fraggle Rock Season 4. I'm really glad they finally decided to release vol. 4 of Fraggle Rock by itself. It really pissed me off when they announced it was originally only going to be released as part of a complete set package. Kind of disappointed they didn't keep the same style packaging and bonus stuff like they had for the first 3 seasons.
More DVD's were Family Guy Blue Harvest and Something Something Something Darkside two pack, and Smallville season 3. I really liked Blue Harvest and going to watch Something Something Something Darkside tomorrow. The plan on making a Return of the Jedi parody as well, I Have A Bad Feeling About This.
The last DVD I got was Santa Claus the Movie.
I got Gears of War, and Grand Theft Auto Episodes From Liberty City. Episodes From Liberty City contains the two DLC packs for GTA4, The Lost and The Damned, and The Ballad of Gay Tony. And unlike the downloaded versions you don't need the original GTA4 game to play them.
And have you ever seen a Rice Krispy treat this big? This thing weighs 2 pounds. And surprisingly it only cost 3 bucks.
How was everyone else's Christmas? Hope you all had good one.

I got the first of the two Fuku-bukuro bags from J-list in Saturday. Fuku-bukuro bags are essentially grab bags that Japanese stores make around new years which are very popular. The value of the items in the bag are always more than the price of the bag. This was the Adult Set 2 bag. I also ordered the Anime Set A which has not come in yet. I got 1 figure, 1 trading figure, 3 gashapons, 3 games, 2 dvds, and 3 magazines in my bag.
The figure was a Story Image Figure EX Yamato from G-Taste. This is the second Story Image Figure EX I've gotten the first was Saki Kasukabe from Genshiken.

The 3 gashapons I got were an Evangelion Soundrop Type 2, Mugen Banana Peeling, and Soundrop "Moe".
As for the games they were Hentai Anime Poker, Chain ~ The Lost Footprints, and JAST USA Memorial Collection. I already have Chain, so will be putting that on EBay sometime this week. I haven't played any of the games inlcuded on the Memorial Collection so looking forward to playing them.
The trading figure was a Hip Parade Trading Figure.
The DVD's I got were Yulia Nova Vol 2 and Yulia Nova Vol 3. The magazines were titled Gal and Bejean
Altogether I got about $180 worth of merchandise from my $70.00 grab bag.

Hobby Link Japan is having a Holiday Blowout Sale between now and Dec 11 (Japan Time). If you pay by Paypal you get free shipping.
Right Stuf is also in the middle of their annual 12 Days of Christmas Sale.
And J-List has their Fuku-Bukuro, or Lucky Bags, available again this year. They are basically grab bags made up of merchandise available on their site. So you won't know what you're getting until you get your bag, but the total retail value of the included items will be more than you paid for the bag. I've actually ordered 2 of these for myself.

While doing my Christmas shopping this weekend, I decided to pick up a few items for myself. I got this Capcom 3 pack which came with Dead Rising, Lost Planet, and Devil May Cry 4 for only 39.99 at Best Buy. I'm starting to get a huge back log of video games. Currently playing Dragon Age Origins, and have Assassin's Creed 2 waiting for when I finish that.
I also picked up some new manga. I got Higurashi Curse Killing Arc Vol 1, Negima Vol 24, and Lucky Star Vol 2. Read more On "Capcom 3 Pack and Some Manga"!
