Code Geass In Stock / ADV Fill In Volumes Available for Pre-Order

Just a couple of quick notes from today:

Code Geass Part #2 (Vol #3-4) Is Now In Stock!

Bandai decided last week (strangely enough) to close their warehouse from Nov 24 to Dec 3, and this caused the street date for Code Geass to get bumped from Dec 2 to Dec 9. Even so, we received our copies of Code Geass part #2 in today, about 2 weeks ahead of schedule and in time for the long weekend.

Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion Part #2 DVD
Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion Part #2 DVD Limited Edition

We shipped 90% of the pre-orders for them today, with the goal of getting it in as many hands as possible over Thanksgiving weekend.

If you haven';t already ordered and you want either of these by this weekend, an order placed before noon (EST) on Tuesday shipping via Priority Mail should have it in your hands by Friday or Saturday, even with the holiday. If you want to be sure, FedEx 2nd Day air will get it to you Friday guaranteed (or Overnight for Wednesday delivery if you want it for Thursday).

Fill in Volumes for Previously Unfinished ADV Titles Available for Pre-Order Only

Of the two options available (buy new release or finish old release) for the unfinished licenses previously held by ADV (Red Garden, Scissors, and NHK) the majority of you have told us that you intend to rebuy the two thin-paks under our current special offers:

Pumpkin Scissors Season 1 Part #1 DVD Boxed Set (Esp #1-12)
Pumpkin Scissors Season 1 Part #2 DVD Boxed Set (Esp #13-24)

Red Garden Season 1 Part 1 DVD Boxed Set
Red Garden Season 1 Part 2 DVD Boxed Set

Welcome to NHK Season 1 Part 1 DVD Boxed Set
Welcome to NHK Season 1 Part 2 DVD Boxed Set

For those of you who already have the individual DVD's that were previously released by ADV and just want to complete your art box rather than purchase the new thin-paks, we are now (per your request) offering the previously unreleased DVD's for pre-order:

Pumpkin Scissors , Vol #6, Final Countdown DVD
Red Garden , Vol #6, To Die Forever DVD
Welcome to NHK , Vol #5, 5th Conspiracy DVD
Welcome to NHK , Vol #6, 6th Conspiracy DVD

These DVD's are being done as a one time release by Funimation trying to offer fans both alternatives (they are only making a few hundred of each). We will not be stocking these, but we will be offering these disks on a pre-order only basis between now and Dec 10th, for delivery during the 3rd week of December.

Cover of the Latest Geek Magazine Is Simply Brilliant

There are only 3 print magazines that I (actually) read - Otaku USA, Protoculture Addicts, and Geek. And it's no wonder, because the cover of the latest issue of Geek is absolutely brilliant! What better could sum up the current financial crisis than the beautiful Sarah Silverman plunging money down Wall Street's toilet:

Outstanding! :-)

That's it for now, have a great evening everyone!
