EXPIRED Independence Day Anime & Manga Deals

USA Flag

Let free stuff ring, let the coupons sing
Let the whole world know that today
Is a day of bargaining.
Let the high be low, let the meh be whoa
Roll the anime, read the manga way
It’s Independence Day.

Happy Fourth of July to all my fellow Americans! For those outside the U.S., happy Random July day!
