Kino’s Journey Vol. 1: Idle Adventurer – Anime DVD Review

Since I enjoyed the Kino no Tabi light novel from Tokyopop, I figured I’d pick up the anime from that one crazy RightStuf sale. I was afraid that the DVD would suffer from the “book is better than the movie” syndrome, but surprisingly it didn’t.

I had this manga on my Amazon.com wishlist for a while, but it never found its way into my shopping cart.

Wandaba Style Vol. 1 – Anime DVD Review

A long, long time ago, I saw the first few episodes of Wandaba Style on fansub. After it got licensed, the one group who was subbing it stopped. I really liked the anime, though I sorta forgot about it for a while. When I saw it in the crazy ADV sale, I figured I’d get the whole series for $15 and give it a shot again.
