We watched the last 3 episodes last night. I can't talk about this without spoilers, so some comments and thoughts behind cut )

Haibane Renmei is a series that I would recommend to anyone, even if they are not fans of anime.

Due to an unusual matching of release dates, a bumper selection of pre-ordered DVDs arrived in the post today:

The first 3 Doctor Who stories on DVD (I already know someone who will take my old VHSs of them off my hands!)
Two 'Studio Ghibli' disks - Pom Poko and Porco Rosso.
And finally the last part of Haibane Renmei. This is the one I am most excited about! Guess what we'll be watching this evening?!

For all those that remember my rant from a week or so ago, Haibane Renmei volume 3 is now on its way!

I also discovered Anime-on-line, a UK specialist and so I now have a copy of the Haibane soundtrack album on the way.

P. if you're reading this, don't click! ).

And The West Wing Season 6 DVDs arrived a couple of days ago - okay they are not actually due out until Monday, but the up-side of sendit.com is that if the stock arrives they send it out!

We've watched the first 5 episodes and very good it is so far.

Well, another couple of hours and we are off to see our friends John & Yvonne Meaney for the weekend. Of course, we're really going to see their new cats, but we haven't told them that... (John's book Paradox is now out in the 'States I believe?)

I've had Haibane Renmei volume 3 preorder from sendit.com since July.

Originally it was scheduled to come out on 3rd September. Then it was 10th September. Now it's 17th September.

Okay, so my problem is that volume 3 came out in the States nearly two years ago. Surely its just a case of changing the region coding (and getting the British Board of Film Classification to look over it I suppose). So why is it taking so long? I want to know what happens next! (And yes, I know I could get a multi-region DVD player)

Sometimes I'm not very patient...
