A long, long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, some corporate suits decided that emulating Japan's asinine anime DVD pricing policy was a good thing, and thus every Tuesday we now get the animated gems and turds of Japan's anime industry! This, of course, is ignoring the fact that there's a lot more turds than diamonds in the pile.
That's where the Anime DVD Release blog comes in. Every week there'll be a sample selection of titles, along with a text blurb on a number of titles to give you a better idea of what you're in for. Given the serial nature of anime DVD releases though, text coverage will be limited to previously unwritten titles to broaden exposure and keep things fresh.

December 4th, 2007 | Forum: Mushi-shi takes Weekly Pick for the second time, narrowly beating out The Third and Hell Girl. Also, Witchblade and Welcome to the N.H.K share the initial "honors" of the first Hall of Shame as well for their boxart.
November 20, 2007 | Forum: Week three of November '07 brings us Robotech: The Shadow Chronicles as the Weekly Pick and some other goodies. America also gets the OAV sequel to the King of Bandits Jing TV series after what, five years?
November 13, 2007 | Forum: November Entry Numero Dos brings us FMA as the weekly pick, and will hopefully be the last time I ever talk about it again, besides in collection form. Gigantic release week, with a vast array of material for everyone.
October 30, 2007 | Forum: The last week of October '07 brings us Pheonix. Go watch it. Now. Besides that, the entire series of Fighting Spirit is available for two or three weeks until Geneon closes up its distribution arm.
October 9, 2007 | Forum: Column #5 is the week of sci-fi/fantasy and the fine art of blowing crap out of things. Weekly pick is Yu Yu Hakusho: Seven Sins, and even for a small week there's a pile o' turds.
September 11, 2007 | Forum: The inaugural week's a slow one, with only a handful of titles, and the Picks of the Week spanning a scant three titles. Shounen Omyouji, Guyver, and Mushi-shi are the only unreservedly recommended titles as the Picks.
