Is that the first series of Ikki Tousen and is it Region 2? I have the first series but on individual DVD's and always wondered if there was a complete set that takes up less space.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

You'd be better off getting rid of those individual DVDs and buying a good anime series instead.

Seeing Ika Musume referred to as "The Squid Girl" is slightly upsetting too. :(

If you say so.

Nah, it's the latest season, Region 1. I've heard the first season is quite a pain to get hold of now. Can't really argue with speed and Prin, the shows aren't exactly highbrow, but they're entertaining throwaway things and sometimes that's all you want. :)

This is the first Deception I've bought, and haven't had a chance to try it out yet. Seems like such a cool concept though, thought I'd take a punt. Squid Girl's just a DVD, it's pretty funny, the dub has constant cheesy squid-related puns.
