Hmm it seems that nearly every scrap piece of extra money I managed to accumulate in the past six months went to anime. I bought quite a few series but have also watched quite a few. Singles are too expensive for the most part (unless its part of one of those crazy Rightstuf sales) so thinpaks and cheapie collections have ruled the day. I am *very* much looking forward to the economy sets of Twelve kingdoms and also the thinpak for Madlax this July. Those are on my MUST buy list for sure. Other than that I have been cutting back in the past month or two and buying clothes instead when I am not wasting money on my kids (something I tend to do far too often). I do rent alot of the newer stuff from Netflix once a series is completely released and looks interesting. I have recently seen Kaliedo Star: New Wings, Kamichu, and Strawberry Marshmellow (the three I can think of right now anyway) because of Netflix. Sounds like I will skip Elfen Lied for now after all the descriptions offered here. It sounds like something I might like if I could take the blood along with it but am too squeamish right now to try and accept that aspect of the show too.
