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 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 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...
