Lillia’s parents aren’t exactly typical, having saved the world… oh, a dozen or so times. And Treize is a member of a royal family, so the restrictions on what he can do are a royal pain. But still, once she’s actually on vacation, she starts to have a good time. Until - people start trying to kill them; they end up with a planeload of orphans; it turns out that Trieze is actually a PRINCE; and did we mention that people are trying to kill them? There are secret identities, aerial dogfights and twisting plots galore ahead as Lillia inherits the family talent for being in the right place at the wrong time in ALLISON & LILLIA - Generation 2!

SRP: $49.98

SYNOPSIS: Some say that life is like an unfolding tapestry, but living at the Hidamari Apartments is more like being part of a patchwork quilt, one that constantly changes as bits and pieces of the lives and dreams of the young artists who make this extraordinary residence their home are added to the ever-expanding pattern. When we first met Yuno, she’d just been accepted to the prestigious Yamabuki Art School and it was up to her new neighbors at Hidamari to help her find her way in the big scary world. Now a seasoned vet of the Hidamari Apartments herself, Yuno’s newest challenge is to help the latest arrivals, Nazuna and Nori, acclimate to life on their own. Of course, since it IS Hidamari, there are still lots of trials and tribulations ahead, and nothing will ever go quite as expected. But with friends like Miyako, Hiro and Sae ready to lend a hand, there will always be a ray of sunshine at the end of every storm in Hidamari Sketch x Hoshimittsu - The Complete Collection.

I already have the last Orphen collection ADV and Sentai put out, but I will be grabbing everything else. Angel Beats is a definite and I’m quite happy to see more Hidamari Sketch (as I’m sure at least one other here will be.) I was actually starting to worry that they may not pick up the rest of Hidamari. Glad to see I was wrong.

Yay!
More HS!

I was worried we wouldn’t get the third season.

Now, that just leaves one more thing I’d really like to see Sentai pick up.

Doing a quick look online, I can see why they are re-releasing Orphen. Apparently the last collection is sold sold out almost everywhere. Right Stuf has it delisted and Amazon says “Temporarily Out of Stock”.

Someone on Mania brought up a good question. I wonder if they will fix the encoding on the Orphen set. The last set had an error in the OP subtitles that caused all sorts of picture glitches when played on certain players (especially the PS3.) I’m hoping they will fix it as it shouldn’t bee to difficult.


#12

All shall be mine…muawhahahaha…
Well except for Orphen, since I have that already, and the Angel Beats DVD, since I’ll be getting the BD instead.
So maybe I should correct that:

All, except for two, shall be mine…muawhahaha!!!

…hahaha!!!

…HA!!!

Eventually for Angel Beats if I like it when I see it (which I plan to be this fall, someone at the club I go to should grab it and I can push a bit)
