It's that time of the month again, ADV UK have sent us their line up for October. They'll be releasing the following titles:

As always you can't go wrong with some Azumanga Daioh, but they're also releasing the last volume of Full Metal Panic! That and with Mahoromatic titles from Gainax always prove popular.
