DVD Day: September 23rd, 2008

51-689POFWL._SS400_.jpgBetween last week’s DVD Day, next week’s DVD Day, and the Lego Batman/Mega Man 9 double-shot, it’s probably good that today is light on the DVDs. Enjoy it, since we’re all going to be legally required to buy Iron Man when it comes out next week.

? Hellsing Ultimate Vol. 4

One of the few ex-Geneon anime titles worth saving, this is the long-awaited next installment of the beautifully animated, preposterously violent, accurate-to-the-manga Hellsing series. It’s incredibly awesome…but it’s also like 40 bucks for one hour. Viva Netflix!

? Friday the 13th: The Series: The First Season
I had totally forgotten this existed until just now. And after reading the Amazon reviews, I’m shocked to realize it has nothing to do with Jason or Crystal Lake. The hell?

? Peanuts Holiday Collection
These have all been out before, but it’s a 3-pack with the Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas specials.

? One Piece Season 1: Second Voyage
More depressing anime sales perspective: those fans who cried so hard have finally gotten their wish for uncut One Piece, but this new volume is barely?barely?beating Alvin and the Chipmunks’ Thanksgiving Celebration in sales, at #51 to #54 (see it here). And in fact, for the previous three weeks, Alvin was beating it.
