Anime Releases 11/17

Here are the releases for today (11/17) 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.

Nice week for several people from the selection we have. I actually have Fullmetal Alchemist Movie: The Conqueror of Shambala collectors DVD set, so will probably leave the blu-ray alone. I still do not have one here to use, but did get one for my wife and son (still need a TV though). I am probably passing on Neon Genesis movie as I am burned out with all the remixes and extras I have already seen. The exception may be the live action if and when it hits.

We can't forget the Dragon Box! As noted on Amazon "Truly the essential edition for Dragon Ball Z purists, this set isn’t an addition to your archive – it is your archive." okay then - so should you go for it - not sure, how about you let me know!

The rest are fairly new to me. Polyphonica looks interesting as I think I remember seeing the 1st episode. I am sure there are plenty of Case Closed fans that will grab the Season 3 set. Of course we got an "adult" anime this week as well - not that anyone of us would watch such things - hummm?

Anyone recommend any of the others listed?
