    Our anime seems to circulate as fast as pancakes at a diner get eaten, and happily we've received six new volumes today! We have two new FullMetal Alchemist videos (eps 45-51) and Negima volumes 2-5 (Magic 201-501).

    Oddly Normal by Otis Frampton
    When your father is human but your mother is a witch, you have green hair and pointed ears, and your name (somehow) is actually and truly Oddly Normal, it's a sure thing that your life isn't going to go smoothly. And if on your birthday, you wish away your house and your parents and suddenly become a citizen of Fignation to live with your aunt while she tries to track down your missing parents, it's another sure thing that life will never be normal. And if you discover that the teacher in your new school actually knew your mom and is the essence of evil, well surely there are secrets and puzzles to be solved.
    Delightful! This is great graphic novel for the preteens and the tweens. I can't wait for the next volume! Oddly and her friends make up a great menagerie of characters in a great tale of magic and mystery.
