    Overseas UK Blu-Ray List / Australian Blu-ray List / USA Region B and Geolocked List

    Much appreciated as I've been wondering about some of their stuff, including Rio: Rainbow Gate :).

    UK Anime Blu-ray & DVD Bargains

    Well, that was an incredibly easy way to burn away £150, hope the MVM one will match!

    The News Thread (for news that does not need a thread)

    While I missed that GoHands is attached to the project, something that hampers my excitement quite a bit, I'm still hopeful they won't make a mess of this. If only someone could tell them that while a touch of digital effects might be nice, a bathtub or two of it is just painful to look at.

    Guaranteed buy for me. I live to watch weird stuff like this.

    Discussing anime adaptations of visual novels

    As you're obviously baiting me to answer that question, here we go again I guess. First, I have never said Fate has gotten a faithful adaptation, not in a 1:1 way at least. If you look at my replies hitherto I've done nothing but argued that those adaptations isn't "perfect" either. Not that...

    Discussing anime adaptations of visual novels

    To end this discussion from my part as it's derailing a "bargin" thread and I could go on forever here (you're free to reply and while I'll still read your reply, I probably won't reply back), You're free to have your opinion, ofc, but you did say "best advantage the Anime has is being more...

    Discussing anime adaptations of visual novels

    Yes, and one of the issues I have about the ufotable adaptations is that they doesn't either adapt "everything". Most notably, they skip 1/3 of the VN, leaving Saber as a rather undeveloped character and making stuff which happen in UBW an HF decidedly less impactful (at least if you ask me)...

    Discussing anime adaptations of visual novels

    Sure, I agree that from a straight "re-experience" perspective the F/SN anime adaptions are superior to the VN but, like I said, both the VN and the anime adaptations have their respective advantages and drawbacks due to being in different mediums. Being easier to "re-experience" is just one of...

    Discussing anime adaptations of visual novels

    Don't know if I'd say that the ufotable Fate adaptions is better than the VN. They certainly do some parts better, with the most obvious one being the fight scenes (which isn't weird as fight scenes can have better "pulse" and "spirit" when in picture form) but they also lack much of the...

    Nothing for me this time, sadly. Still like this format of reveals though

    UK Anime Distributor Anime Limited Discussion Thread

    Yeah, I think it's unlikely that there will be a online stream of the third one this far from the JP BD release. Has a release date for the BD in Japan even been announced? I can see the danger of high quality webrips spreading like wildfire being too great for a hyped movie such as this one. I...

    UK Anime Distributor Manga Animatsu Discussion Thread

    Manga's recent penchant for delaying stuff is quite unnerving to say the least. Was going for all the Bungou releases but I pass on them now honestly. This along with their, in my opinion ofc, pretty mediocre announcements really cements them as the one I like the least out of "the three".

    UK Anime Distributor MVM Entertainment Discussion Thread

    I've always understood that lewd stuff is kinda the main selling point of "ecchi" titles. Taking away that "lewd" stuff, in a sense diminishing the ecchi aspect, makes it less interesting for people who like ecchi stuff, don't you think?

    UK Anime Distributor MVM Entertainment Discussion Thread

    If it's been cut, then it's definitely gonna be dead at birth and have poor sells. Though, if it is as NormanicGrav describe I don't see why there would be any cuts tbh.

    UK Anime Distributor MVM Entertainment Discussion Thread

    Has there been any clarification as to whether it's going to be the censored TV masters or not? Anyhow, I'd assume that this one will be pretty much dead at birth then.
