    UK Anime Distributor Manga Animatsu Discussion Thread

    The FMA UE isn't bad, sure. But look at the Bebop UE from the same company. Or ~£30-40 for 12 episodes in a bog standard Amaray from any other company. In jest or not, there's been plenty of times where I've seen someone parrot a similar statement, but completely seriously as a way to...

    UK Anime Distributor Manga Animatsu Discussion Thread

    Nobody cares how much you paid for your fancy 20-part LaserDisc/VHS/DVD releases from decades ago. It's completely irrelevant, and is a ******, gatekeep-y statement I wish would die already. The price of anime today (even bog standard SE releases) is prohibitively expensive for a lot of people...

    UK Anime Distributor MVM Entertainment Discussion Thread

    Steins;Gate 0 I certainly wouldn't call a flawless VN.

    Announced (& not yet scheduled) Releases

    Something to be said when AL's list of stuff yet to release is bigger than the entire rest of the UK industry combined... I ain't no business scientist, but personally, I think I'd like to see them just take on less stuff, and focus on getting good quality products out within reasonable...

    Rate the Last Film You Watched

    The Sword of Doom (1966) Nakadai's performance is terrifyingly great. Trying to parse the emotions lining his stare after a particularly spectacular fight featuring another character is the highlight of the film for me. Score and visuals are consistently on-point. Fight scenes range from slow...
