Studios get ready for Christmas shoppers in November, as you can tell by the flood of new collections and reprinted single volumes. This is the longest list we’ve had in a while.

First, the DVD picks:

Now, the Blu-Ray picks:

Finally, the picks of the week. Blaine says, “choosing only from those titles I’ve seen, North by Northwest is a clear winner by a mile. By reputation, Wings of Desire might give it a run for its money.” Alex says “Also going with what I’ve seen (including fansubs) You’re Under Arrest Season 2 is definitely worht picking up. It has a lot of the things I liked about the first Patlabor OVA and the TV series, without the sci-fi elements (which is okay too). I don’t particularly have anything I can pick for Blu-Ray, as the only show on the list I’ve seen was Witchblade, and only in part.”
