Hello and greetings fellow Otaku,
Well here is the first piece of good anime news for the new year!!!!! Recently Media Blasters, the company behind such popular anime series such as Genshiken, Rurouni Kenshin, Bakuman and many others has announced that they are going to re-releasing the first season of the popular animated series Fushigi Yugi: The Mysterious Play this April.
While no other information has been released as to when the box set will be published, it is understood that the new box set will be more affordable than the original box sets that were originally released by Pioneer\Geneon back in the early 2000’s for around $200!!!!!
Personally, I have been waiting for another company to re-release this series for a while now. I wanted to buy the original box sets but they were too expensive. Hopefully, more fans of this series will be able to afford to pick this up. So thank you Media Blasters, you totally kick some major A**!!!!!
And in an un-related story, I was just able to obtain the first two volumes of Batgirl (The New 52) from DC Comics from a great comic book website known as Lonestar Comics!!!!! Lonestar Comics is a great place to find new, rare and hard to find comics including hard to find issues of “The New 52”. I already have volumes three and four in my possession and with volume 5 being released this month, I plan on giving you guys my first impressions of the series within the next few weeks.
And as always, stay with AFC for the latest information with these breaking news stories. So until next time, remember that there is a ton of great anime, manga and comics out there. All you have to do is find them. Ltrs.
