VIDEO GIRL AI, VOL. 2: MIX DOWN

Animerica Extra graphic novel

VIDEO KILLED THE RADIO STAR

High school student Yota Moteuchi has a nickname among his

classmates: "Dateless." That doesn't stop him from falling in

love with his gentle classmate Moemi, but his heart is broken

when she tells him that she loves Yota's best friend, Takashi.

Crushed, Yota enters a mysterious video shop, Gokuraku, where

he rents a video starring the cute young idol Ai Amano. But when

he plays the video, Ai emerges from the TV and lands in Yota's

bed-a real-life video girl dedicated to improving his love life

whether he likes it or not!



NO NEED FOR TENCHI! VOL. 8: CHEF OF IRON

Science fiction comedy based on the anime series from Pioneer!

It all started when high school student Tenchi freed the alien

pirate Ryoko from her captivity on Earth. Soon enough, her

friends and enemies showed up: alien princess Ayeka, mad

scientist Washu, ditzy space cop Mihoshi. Surrounded by

beautiful, feuding alien women, poor Tenchi is either the luckiest

or the most miserable boy on Earth!



SILENT MOBIUS: CATASTROPHE #2

8 extra pages for the same price! A mysterious cyborg

killer--composed of the same "megadyne" technology as

A.M.P.'s bionic woman Kiddy Phenil--is slashing its way through

Tokyo again, and she's not just a mindless murderer like the last

one was. What's worse, Kiddy's acquaintances have become

dragged into the conflict, and there are some things you just

shouldn't get involved in without a little cyberware.
