I hung out with friends today, & while we stopped at Barnes & Noble, I decided on a whim to buy Volume 1 of the Berserk manga. I've heard it's pretty violent and disturbing; I can't wait to give it a go!

Well, I went to a anime convention on Saturday and didn't get any anime either because it was released yet or it was too expensive. I did ended up getting some other stuff like a couple of t-shirts, some Japanese sweets, the soundtrack to Wild Arms Alter Code F (Yes!) and a decoration of a dragon on a crystal rock of some kind. The was also the Lufia game on the GBA for $40's there but was unable to get it.
Was at the mall in Savannah (The Oglethorpe which against all odds is a mall that is still busy and thriving, the last one anywhere near me) and turns out Thinkgeek now has physical locations selling theirs and other merchandise.
I bought this Fallout Vault Boy Tiki glass and at the Barnes and Noble finally decided to get the Hyrule Historia.
As great as online shopping may be there's something to be said for those impulse buys you'd probably have not made unless you were out and about.
I just went to Book Castle/Movie World in Burbank. It's an independent book store, which unfortunately is closing in like a couple days. I read about it, and decided to check it out while I had the chance. I don't generally read books, but I figured it would be worth visiting. I ended up getting the following, all just for like $15:
- Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six
- James Joyce's Ulysses (revised edition, whatever that means)
- Homer's The Odyssey (translated by W. H. D. Rouse)
- Erich Maria Remarque's All Quiet on the Western Front
- Lew Wallace's Ben Hur
- Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness & The Secret Sharer
I ordered some DVDs/Blu Rays/stuff on Amazon, for like the first time in a looooooong time.
- Get Out (I just saw this, and loved it) - Mad Max: Fury Road (It's about time I actually own this) - Ninja Scroll (I remember seeing this like a decade ago and liking it; I'm looking forward to rewatching it) - Your Name (I saw this recently, and loved it too)
Great adds to your collection. It's been ages since I saw Ninja Scroll. Looking forward to Makoto Shinkai's next movie, Weathering with You/Tenki no Ko.
I also picked up a few things recently on Amazon: Stop Tech brake pads. My car is due for a replacement soon. And... Yoshitaka Amano: The Illustrated Biography, Beyond the Fantasy. Limited Edition. I had to jump on it, seeing as how they were offering $55 off the cover price. It's a beautiful set, and I'm loving it. I used to think I was done by art books, but this one suckered me back in.
