    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...

    UK Anime Distributor Manga Animatsu Discussion Thread

    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...

    My 00 Box is fine, though my Thunderbolt: Bandit Flower was printed wrong so that the very top of the box has a reasonably thick white line and the Gundam collection logo is therefore slightly lower than its prequel's box. .... Mildly annoying, but far from the end of the world. In fact the...

    Boruto: Naruto Next Generations - Set 4 Review

    Boruto returns for his fourth batch of episodes on Blu-ray here in the UK, bringing with him a partial focus on a few of his allies, which is refreshing! That being said, if you are expecting that means the story seen here diverges from the usual plot points found in Naruto/Boruto, you might be...

    Oh yeah, that's what I was saying, £120 I'm perfectly happy with. It was the £200 that made me pause. Keep up the fine work!

    UK Anime Distributor Anime Limited Discussion Thread

    I'll admit, I saw £199.99 and thought "It's a shame to miss out on the original series, but I guess I'll wait till next year", then saw the early bird is £119.99 and thought "Actually, that's not so bad. I'll probably plonk down the money at that price". I guess I now know a rough price at which...

    Same here. Between it, IBO Part 1 and Extreme vs. MBO on the PS4, it's been a Gundam heavy week! ..... Hooray!

    Bleach: Can't Fear Your Own World Volume 1 Review

    Bleach has seen something of a renaissance in the last half a year, an anime adaptation of its final arc next year being the biggest news, but lost among it was an official English release of a trilogy of light novels that follow the story on after its admittedly weak conclusion. How does the...

    The Gundam 00 movie collection is now coming out the same day as Iron Blooded Orphans Part 2, unless that changes as well, obviously. IBO Part 1 is still scheduled for a week on Monday, if you want to keep up with the three Gundams in the pipeline at the moment!

    Star Blazers: Space Battleship Yamato 2202 - Part 1 Review

    The crew of the Yamato find out that you wait several millennia for an evil space empire to nearly wipe out your planet, and then two come along at once! Yes, just three years after the original conflict with Gamillan, the Gatlantis people are now terrorising the galaxy. Is this the law of...

    Star Blazers: Space Battleship Yamato 2199 - The Complete Series Review

    Rebooting a really popular and beloved franchise is always a risk, so when it was revealed that a renewed and update version of Space Battleship Yamato (otherwise known as Star Blazers) was being made, most were rightly sceptical. Now the dust has settled, did they pull it off? Continue reading...

    One Piece: Stampede Review

    One Piece has been going a long time, so long that this latest film to hit DVD and Blu-Ray, titled “Stampede”, celebrates 20 years since the anime debuted, and while the film is mostly about celebrating the past, does it also hold together as a standalone film - or is it really just for fans...

    Boruto: Naruto Next Generations - Part 3 Review

    Boruto’s third set arrives on UK shores and with it contains the end of the story arc started in the previous set, as well as a nostalgia-filled graduation exam mini-arc. But is it all throwbacks like the cover of this volume will have you believe, or does it have more substance than that...
