    Recent Anime/Manga purchases/Discussion

    I haven't had enough money to go on an anime buying spree (the discount bins were pretty horrible in selection for the past month or so)

    I haven't bought anything recently, but last night I happened to see a movie on tv called Revolutionary Girl Utena. <span style="colorimGray"><span style="font-size:.67em">(Disregarding Thread Topic: $500 and up to 6 months in jail)</span></span>



    Anyone heard of it? It was really weird! I've never seen the series, but the movie confused the heck out of me. I think it's supposed to have meaning on an abstract, symbolic level. But in the literal respect goes almost completely nonsensical, especially towards the end.



    Not that that's bad or anything. I enjoy nonsense, especially when it's presented in an artistic and entertaining way, as this was.

    I despise the utena movie, the series at times is odd and non-sensical, but the movie was just bad.



    I've been buying the Suikoden III Manga lately, as well as reading a few fan translations of Elfen Lied.



    Most recent purchase was Saber Marionet J series for 20, from suncoast before it closed.

    <div class="bbcode_quote_body">Fifteen years ago, a set of twins - a girl and a boy - was born to the king of Linevan. Shortly after their birth, a prophecy foretold that when the girl turned 16, she would bring about the end of humanity. To avoid this terrible fate, the king ordered the princess disposed of - scrapped. She miraculously survived and was raised away from the kingdom that would kill her. But now that she has turned 15, the king's guards have caught wind that she's still alive...and they've set out to finish the job.</div>

    from anime news network.
