Anime Releases 11/10

Here are the releases for today (11/10) at your local Video, Book Stores or the infamous Amazon website in the US. I only review Movies and Box Sets that are coming out as this will get the most bang for your buck. I did "borrow" the summaries from various sites so you can get a brief review of the story.

I broke this up into Anime box sets and movies to make it a little simpler (I hope). This week seems to be great for all you DBZ fans. One box set and 2 movies (though I am sure these have been released over and over again for some damn reason). I had the Giant Robo box set and thought this was a pretty cool series.

I also have Vexille which I liked as the concept for the movie was quite interesting. I ahve seen some of the earlier Tsubasa series, but did not keep it up after the 7th DVD. I may get this box set along with the second one that comes out.I am looking forward to the new Naruto series, so will be picking this up especially for my son who is enamored by him. Hell, he even runs like him with his arms behind him.

I am also seeing more and more Anime coming out in Blu-ray. I have a player that I got for my wife, but have not set it up yet. Anyone gaining any personal love for getting Blu-ray instead of DVD format?

BTW: The next couple weeks seem to be pretty heavy with Anime being released - especially before the Thanksgiving Holidays.
