I got my boxes from Amazon today. They contained some anime, manga and camera items. A couple things I needed and some just for fun.

After reading the first issue of Cat Paradise, I wanted to read more. The style is really clean and expressive and the story is cute and interesting. I tend to collect a lot of the work of artists I like so I can study their style more. So I picked up the rest of the Cat Paradise series. If you love cats and students fighting monsters, this might be up your alley.


Next are a couple of Blu-Ray anime.  Anime on Blu-Ray is becoming more common now, so I’m glad to see that. This time I picked up the second movie to the redone Evagelion series, Evangelion: 2.22. I was/am a big fan of the original series so this was on my wish list for a while. I’m eager to see this one since my favorite Eva character, Asuka, makes her appearance.

Ga-Rei Zero is a newer series for me. I watched it recently on Netflix and was hooked. I love this series! It’s very well done, in my opinion. It’s a friendship story surrounded by monsters and action with a little comedy. I certainly recommend it. Even though I have already seen it, I still wanted to have it for my collection. I’m sure I’ll watch it again.

Lastly for the anime is High School of the Dead. I wasn’t too keen on the manga, which I picked up a while ago, but I heard good things about the anime. I only watched a couple episodes and I must agree. It’s much better. I really like it in fact. Can’t wait to finish it.


Finally, I also picked up some camera gear. Thanks to a suggestion from a new friend, I bought a flash remote trigger set and a flash stand/umbrella set by Cowboy Studio. This will (hopefully) allow me to use my flash off to the side, instead of dead center, and have it diffused with the large umbrella. I’m still learning how to take good pictures. I hope this will help out.


That’s it for now, but I have more coming up in the next couple days. Be sure to check back.
