There are only a few anime releases this week but they are definitely worth looking into. Media Blasters has two titles hitting shelves this week, the Genshiken DVD DX Collection which includes Season 1 and the OVAs and the complete collection of Queen’s Blade: The Exiled Virgin on DVD. Sentai Filmworks releases the first collection of Needless on both Blu-ray and DVD and the big title this week is Summer Wars from FUNimation on both Blu-ray and DVD.
New manga titles are a little low this week with only a few hitting stores from a few publishers. Viz Media has the most releases this week with two, 20th Century Boys GN 13 and Bokurano: Ours GN 3 while the rest of the companies each have one. Vertical releases 7 Billion Needles GN 3, Bandai releases Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion GN 8, Dark Horse releases Oh My Goddess GN 37 and finally Moonstone Books releases the official art book for Voltron: Defender of the Universe.
