    UK Anime Distributor Manga Animatsu Discussion Thread

    Yeah, France has been getting some really great stuff recently - I believe Kaze have Ushio & Tora, Sailor Moon and Kuroko's Basketball.

    UK Anime Distributor Anime Limited Discussion Thread

    I really hope now plans for Zeta Gundam are pretty much fully formed, Anime Ltd can release some more details on plans for the forthcoming rollout of other RightStuff Gundam titles. Eg. are we getting ZZ next, or skipping straight ahead to where the US is now with the Turn A Blu-Rays and UC...

    UK Anime Blu-ray & DVD Bargains

    Ergo Proxy is definitely one of the few shows from the mid 00s that's aged pretty well. It still baffles me that it was from as early as 2005, as some of the shots look incredible. That said, the quality itself can vary vastly - the early eps look fantastic, but some of the later eps go...

    A Naruto ending relationship discussion (fan shipping opinions)

    While I'm pretty happy with the way Naruto ended and who ended up with whom (it was kinda obvious) - I've never been the biggest fan of the way Kishimoto treats his female characters, which is a shame as in terms of personality and design, they're mostly of very high quality. It's just the way...

    Legal Streaming 2017: Q1 Winter season | Twice the Explosions

    I watched a couple of eps and yeah, it was kind of a weird experience. It's definitely better than most Sentai dubs are these days, but a) it lacks the familiarity of 'usual' VAs, and b) there's a certain flatness to it where all the characters operate in the same kind of ballpark / tone - all...

    X Japan and other rock-related chat

    I've never been the biggest fan of Dream Theatre either, funnily enough - I find my metal tastes are either toward stuff like Bring Me The Horizon, While She Sleeps, Architects etc. or down the route of Nightwish, Amaranthe, Within Temptation etc.

    UK Anime Distributor Anime Limited Discussion Thread

    Personally I think getting frustrated over yellow subs just isn't worth it. God, imagine the old days when you had horrid pixelated subs... We're a world away now. I can't see the Erased sets doing overly well - the show's popular, but it needs that same mass market audience SAO had - and those...

    UK Anime Distributor Anime Limited Discussion Thread

    I think it's safe to assume we probably won't be getting Eureka Seven until May or June at the absolute earliest (ie. if they announce it during the May London Comic Con) - at this rate though, given it's a UE though, I imagine it's more likely we won't get it until Q3.

    X Japan and other rock-related chat

    I'm a big fan of contemporary Japanese rock / metal, but I have to admit I've never been able to get into X - they remind me too much of stuff like Kiss or Iron Maiden - basically, your 'dads' rock...

    Asian Cinema Thread

    Very tempted by the Lone Wolf And Cub set. We've been getting some great classic asian cinema sets recently like the Nikkatsu Diamond Guys ones, and this feels very much in the same line.

    Your viewing journal

    Bakemonogatari is the purest distillation of modern art / architecture into animated form. Or rather, post-modernist. I definitely approach it more as an approach in style than any kind of overarching narrative.

    Everybody Loves Jerome

    I think the issue with things like Dagashi Kashi is more one of timing. CR clearly have a staggered plan in place - one they began to implement weekly over the Xmas period, but then stopped once the new season started to concentrate on that. I have no doubt they'll allow us these shows in the...

    Upcoming UK Anime Blu-ray & DVD Artwork

    I don't really see the Gurren Laggann UE as being ripped off. Yes, it was comparatively poor to the later UEs, and of pretty shoddy quality all things considered - but it was clearly a step in a long learning process toward the far higher quality product we get now. Without it, we wouldn't be...

    Anime at the cinema

    One of the best cinema anime experiences I ever had was Your Name at the Islington Vue. And this is just a couple of years on from when From Up On Poppy Hill came out and the best you could get was a tiny screen in the Brixton Ritzy. Anime in cinemas has come miles in just a few years and I can...
