    Indeed, the first year AD was 1 AD, and therefore the first decade was 1 AD to 10 AD... Still, it's just annoying to say "1990 was the last year of the 80s", so it far easier to just say "The 90s was 1990 to 1999", so I see it both ways. One is more accurate, the other is more convenient...

    Akira Limited Edition 4K Review

    Akira is a landmark film, not just in anime but in general. It inspired so much after it and it’s so well loved that there is every chance you already have a copy on your shelf right now. So the real question is “should I buy the 4K version?” Let’s find out! Continue reading...

    Thirded (that's not a word...) I also get my two Turn A sets a couple of days ago and have yet to receive a dispatch notice. If it weren't for @HellCat 's post they would've been buried with the two Amazon parcels of family gifts that arrived on the same day and I'd be completely unaware of...

    All I can say is mine's fine, I'm afraid! Hopefully if you put it in the middle of a couple of boxes on a shelf you won't notice (if that's how it'll be stored!)

    I remember liking.... the first half-ish of Destiny. Wondering what all the fuss was about, then IT happened. Still I'm sure I'll plonk down more cash for that series next year as well...

    Oh I know, I wasn't being literal, I was just making fun of the fact that it's one of my least favourite Gundam shows and yet I'm spending a good chunk of change on two copies of it at once... Stupid sexy matching boxsets.

    Yeah, I mean frankly I don't really know why I'm getting the original Seed and the HD version together, I definitely don't need a slightly worse HD version along with them!

    Am I disappointed? Well yeah, that was a lot of money to put down for something I now won't get until next year, BUT I would be more disappointed if I got the release, the picture quality was poor and then I had to order some replacement discs that would probably just be floating around in...

    UK Anime Blu-ray & DVD Bargains

    Given I already own the imported Japanese release, NT being reduced down to £20 took the sting off of buying it pretty much solely because of the nice matching boxes a bit! .... Only a bit, but still... I'm not stopping now!

    Wow, Wicked City is straight out of the late night Sci-Fi Channel times, and very memorable for probably the wrong reasons. Still, it's a throwback I'll probably pick up!

    Star Blazers: Space Battleship Yamato 2202 – Part 2 Review

    The second half of the second series of Space Battleship Yamato, otherwise known as Star Blazers, adds on the tension as the three-way war between Earth, Gamillas and Gatlantis rages across the galaxy. The only question that remains has to be: does it finish the plot in a satisfying manner...

    I got into a bit of detail on the differences between the three UK DBZ releases on our look at the collectors edition set here: https://animeuknews.net/2020/06/dragon-ball-z-30th-anniversary-collectors-edition-a-look-back-at-manga-entertainments-r2-release/ Funnily enough I asked and used some...

    UK Anime Distributor Anime Limited Discussion Thread

    Wow, come the end of the year I wonder just how much money I'll have spent on Gundam blu-rays.... I mean, willingly and happily, but still! Thrilled with Turn-A joining the slate, it's been at least a decade since I watched it the first time via poor-picture-quality fansubs...
