A Message from Our Fearless Leader, Fall of 2009

Welcome to our Fall 2009 Catalog!

Here at Right Stuf, our Year of the Otaku is continuing. So far we've introduced Ninja, Kawaii, Samurai, Shoujo, Sci-Fi, Magical Girl, Horror and Vampire Otaku. What kinds of Otaku are you?

We hope one of the answers to that question is "Otaku who gets the most for their money." To help with that mission, in the past few months, we've changed our pricing structure by offering even more books, manga, DVDs and Blu-rays at an "everyday" discount of 25%. That means you can get our old "pre-order" pricing on most items, all the time… and that's before you factor in any sales OR the extra 10% discount that Got Anime members receive!

Our Nozomi Entertainment division has also had a big year. ARIA The ANIMATION was selected as the "DVD Release of the Year" by our friends at AnimeOnDVD @ Mania.com. Collectors' box sets featuring The Third: The Girl With the Blue Eye, Gakuen Alice, and the remastered TV and OVA series for The Irresponsible Captain Tylor were released, along with "value collections" of His and Her Circumstances, Astro Boy, Kimba and Boogiepop Phantom. And the first of two premium sets featuring Rental Magica are on the way!

As we head into 2010, expect to see even more otaku-favorite releases including Maria Watches Over Us Season 4, ARIA The ORIGINATION (and the ARIETTA OVA), seasons 1 and 2 of Junjo Romantica, and the Antique Bakery anime. (Plus more we haven't even talked about yet!)

And all of the above is for YOU. We wouldn't be here with out you - the fans! So tell us what you think about the store, about our licensing decisions and even about the Anime Today podcast. There are more ways than ever to share your thoughts with us - from our Twitter, Facebook and YouTube pages to our very own Anime Today forums, phone calls and emails.

We're listening, and we're looking forward to continuing to serve you - because, here at Right Stuf, the Year of the Otaku is really every year!

Best Regards,
