Man my eyes are fried now!

I decided to dig into my backlog for Christmas.
I just finished marathoning this entire series in one go!

Next up, Wedding Peach, though I don’t think I’ll marathon that since my eyes will probably just ooze out of their sockets.

There is also Saiyuki Reload and Saiyuki Reload Gunlock. This one dragged on, a bit.

There is indeed.
I made a thread on them quite some time back, which can be found in the Other Anime section, since they were licensed by Geneon.

But if you’re interested, here’s the thread for them:

I generally don’t post re-release cover art, but since this is from AEsir rather than ADV, I figured I’d post it.

Cover art has been posted.
