Anime & Manga Deals: Clean Out Your Bookcase Day Edition

President's Day

In the US, it’s Presidents’ Day, a federal holiday always celebrated the third Monday of February. And this year, it lines up with Clean Out Your Bookcase Day, where you are meant to organize your bookshelves, get rid of anything you don’t want, finally clear a book from your backlog, etc.

*looks at her shelves*

Uh, yeah, I totally should do that. But since it’s also not Find Your Motivation To Do Stuff You Really Don’t Want to Do, I can skip celebrating, right?? Right??

Besides, I’m totally busy bringing you this list of deals!

By the way, while Valentine’s Day is over, some of the specials in the roundup are still valid.
