Five DVD's...and only one walks away alive! Just kidding! But there are five DVD's in this roundup. For surprises, I'd say Aquarian Age has really taken off in the second volume as far as the story goes, and it may be worth your while to give it a look if you're into more of a drama. Azumanga Daioh is just downright hilarious. I know I shouldn't laugh at an 11-year old being tormented by an older girl, but I really can't help it. The same folks that brought us Excel Saga are behind Azumanga Daioh, although some of the more extreme parts don't make it through. If you want a series that you can jump into without having to watch earlier volumes, Azumanga Daioh is a great choice. The whole thing is over here.
