My The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya was dispatched yesterday. Still annoyed that I have to watch it on DVD and not Blu-Ray.

I've always been confused by the Naruto DVDs, as they're not really "box sets" are they? More like, single DVDs. Annoyed how with the bank stealing my money, and my Mum stealing my money to buy Plants vs Zombies, I can't afford K-On! 2 until the end of the month >>.

You forgot ICE from Cine du Monde, also out Monday 7th
That's the only one I've pre-ordered. You can save a couple of quid on that price at Amazon, where I notice it's climbed around twenty thousand places in the best-seller rankings in the last couple of days. Surprise hit?

Wow, its a bloody bad week for covers isn't it?
Disappearance isn't actually that bad to be honest (but is still far from good), but the rest are wow. Ice looks like a piece of abstract post modern art, and it will be a miracle if it becomes a surprise hit with that cover,or maybe thats exactly why it will become a surprise hit, it is stragely mesmerising?
Ikki tousen is basically a travesty to the whole human race and I feel untold amounts of shame even looking at it, I wouldn't even mind if it was a genuinely sexy cover but its actually just plain hideous.
Naruto looks like a creepy guy with green hands is trying to cop a feel of Naruto's crotch, but actually is just trying it on in desperation with a 2D poster of Naruto and therefore grabbing nada but air.

I take it you don't like that BBC sticker on the box of Haruhi then :D

Spot on.

Why does a show thats made for 7yr olds have a 15 certificate on it?!










I'm just joking ok, before the fanatics come for my blood

I think the Disappearance cover's good but I'm waiting for the BD. I'll be replacing the Ice cover with a scan of the infinitely better R1 at some point, but I can't turn it down at £6.99. I'd never be able to import it that cheap.

Believe me when I say that I understand fully borderline OCD over design work, but just so you know, statements like this:
Ikki tousen is basically a travesty to the whole human race and I feel untold amounts of shame even looking at it
are reminding me quite a lot of a member who shan't be named and isn't around very often any more, but specialised in putting people's noses out of joint with his rather special brand of opinionated melodrama. If you're not being overly serious, make that more obvious because it doesn't come across in text. If you are being serious that would probably be classed as trolling.

That's not Naruto! It's Kakashi, who is a million times better :S

I like Ikkitousen, though I don't particularly like that cover (her face is a bit off).

Are you sure you not getting this other member plain mixed up with me? Because that sounds just like me.

If you're not being overly serious, make that more obvious because it doesn't come across in text. If you are being serious that would probably be classed as trolling.

Hmmm, well theres certainly more than a hint of truth in what I posted, but to say that it was posted in overly seriousness would be wrong too, as I don't believe such a post could ever be done in such seriousness...well by a sane person anyway...which I may or may not be...

Don't worry Vash, I think they have white spirit for this kind off thing

If only...all the white spirit in the world can't make me feel clean again...

Exactly. People will get the idea that you're either insane or trying to get a rise out of them. And in those circumstances people tend to either ignore you as a troll or turn on the flame-throwers and have at you. There's never anything wrong with having opinions, but there are certain ways of expressing them that tend to rile people. And that most certainly was one, if I ever saw it. And since I think you often have some interesting thoughts I'd prefer to see you involved in discussion, rather than being ignored or flamed!

Ah so it is, its been a while since I've seen Naruto. I thought that was him grown up,

Yep it is, but your telling me you didn't also notice her breasts being a bit off, By about 12 cup sizes! If I saw someone with a pair like that coming towards me, I would turn and run out of genuine terror.

If only the show was called "Kakashi" and was all about Kakashi.

I know, Its well annoying when theres one amazing character in a show thats otherwise pants.

Thank you for your concern Ayase!

Yeah I think I do see the problem. I think the problem is that I post as I would pretty much talk and on the computer, theres no way to express tone or emotion accurately over it, which is probably where any misunderstandings come from. I really would never have thought that Ikki comment could have riled anyone up.

Ikki tousen cover.

You know, I rather like the Ikki tousen cover, not because of what's on it, because, to be honest, it looks kind of bad, from that respect but because of what it is.

I mean, it gets the message across quite well don't you think? It's rather clear what it is, and it's a nice throwback to 90's fanservice anime.

Also, the Naruto cover art, as of late has been disappointingly nice. I say that the series is rather naff but the art is well illustrated. Also, Kakashi.
