Some flags are simple things like “friendship” flags, but others are more ominous, like “death” flags. Over the next few days, more and more classmates and friends are drawn to him and live with him at the Quest Dorm, and Sota must occasionally use his powers to alter their fates. He and his new friends and dormmates get up to all kinds of fun adventures. However, he eventually discovers that there is more to his power, and the world itself, than he realized...

Many Sailor Moon R customers, including a good number of those who purchased their sets from RACS, have reported that their copy of the Sailor Moon R Set 1 Limited Edition did not include the reversible disc cover that was supposed to be part of the set.

We're not sure how long it will take for your new cover to arrive, but at least Viz has addressed the issue and made new covers available to anyone who asks without a great deal of hassle.

Backed by the Balsteros Republic, the Kingdom of Qi, and the Benares Empire, the people aboard Isla will be embarking on a voyage to search for the fabled “End of the Sky.” Over the course of this voyage, Kal-el forges new friendships with his fellow cadets and even falls in love with a young woman named Claire Cruz. But Kal-el has other reasons for being on Isla, for he is none other than Karl La Hire, the former crown prince of the Balsteros Empire who lost his family and title six years ago in the Wind Revolution led by the Wind Priestess, Nina Viento. Knowing that Nina Viento is aboard Isla, Kal-el prepares to exact his revenge upon her, but a surprise attack by the fierce Sky Clan puts this plan on hold. Though Kal-el and his fellow cadets take to the skies to fight for love, the horrors of war start to take their toll as true identities are revealed, loyalties are tested, and the bonds of love and friendship begin to waver.

The horrors they recklessly unleash mark the beginning of an adventure that leads an unforgettable cast of characters from darkness to light and back again.

In an era of war and corruption, State Alchemist Edward Elric and his brother Alphonse desperately search for the Philosopher’s Stone. The legendary artifact is their last hope to restore what they’ve lost – but how far will they go to get it? From the ashes of their childhood, Edward and Alphonse quickly rise to fame within the ranks of the military, realizing along the way that the power to create is only ever a breath away from the power to destroy. And whether they’re up against monsters, madmen, or military officials, the bond these brothers share will be the greatest weapon they have in the fight for their lives.
