Finally, the picks of the week. Alex says, “There really isn’t much that’s caught my interest this week. If you haven’t already gotten the Miyazaki re-releases, I’d recommend going with those. Otherwise, on the anime front, I’m putting Daibuster on my to-rent list. On the everything-else front, I’d definitely recommend checking out Little Caesar.” Blaine says, “I’ll see you Alex’s Little Caesar and raise you the entire gangster box set.”
