BlazBlue Art Book for Sale on Aksys Official Site

Posted by Niki K. F. on August 13, 2009

I couldn’t really think up a witty title for this news because it’s just too good to be true:  the highly sought-after art book of BlazBlue is now for sale on Aksys’ Website.

The art book was only available to those who pre-ordered the fighter from Gamestop.com—you didn’t even get it if you pre-ordered in the stores!  And since the art book was produced in such low numbers, even some of those who did pre-order online didn’t get their own.  On eBay, the bidding for an art book easily surpassed $40, $50, and even $60.  So if you missed out on on the art book and want one, or even if you’re just hearing about BlazBlue now, then you HAVE to go buy it now for ONLY $15—that’s including the shipping already!! (unless you’re one of those who’s just hearing about BlazBlue now, in which you should buy the art book and then go buy BlazBlue)

The adorable clear file is still on sale, and I love mine.  The tote bag is also still for sale, although I honestly think it’s a bit too expensive.

Along with the art book, Aksys has put an ADORABLE shirt for sale, featuring Ragna being stomped by Hakumen, and the input command for the attack, in case you were ever to forget it.  The site warns that the shirt doesn’t work when viewed in a mirror.  Again, I think it’s a bit pricey, but you have to agree with me when I say that it’s one of the cutest things ever.

Borders has Dates – BLEACH Frenzy

Posted by Niki K. F. on August 7, 2008

Following the BLEACH Collector’s Edition, available now, VIZ Media has even more BLEACHy goodness in store for the coming months.  Volume 24 will be released on September 2nd – if you don’t keep up with the story in the monthly magazine Shonen Jump, now’s the time to pre-order.  Also over the horizon is volume 25, scheduled for release on December 2nd.

Also available for pre-order is the artbook, All Color But the Black, to be in stock October 7th, and the SOULS Character Book on October 21st.

Along with BLEACH, a Death Note Collector’s Edition should be released September 2nd as well (although the Borders site lists it as becoming available on the 16th), and the Death Note live action movie, starring the greatest actor of all time, Tatsuya Fujiwara, coming on September 16th.

Another novel (in this case, a light novel) that Borders has a listing for is Strawberry Panic 3, the final volume in the light novel series, with a release date of October 28.  Two other light novels they have listed are Code Geass adaptations:  the first, Stage 0 – Entrance, release date September 22; the second, Stage 1 – Knight, release date December 17.

Please feel free to leave a comment – have any corrections to the dates?  Planning on buying any of these titles?  I’d love to hear your opinions!  But one last word before leaving:  what a busy holiday season this will be!
