"I got buried under a landslide of teenage nostalgia last week. First Sentai Filmworks announced that they were planning a new physical release for Azumanga Daioh, then Discotek Media did the same with Cromartie High School. I watched (and re-watched) the living heck out of both of these shows in high school, and they spent a long time as my go-to choices for subjecting my friends to anime comedy. While I've still got the old ADV thinpack collections of both series, it's still really cool to see them coming back into circulation. They're both very funny, and I still see new shows use similar comedic styles from time to time. If you're new to anime, check 'em out if you get a chance. As for me, I may just have to open my old sets up and take a little stroll down memory lane. Welcome to Shelf Life."
