    Fatal Fury 2: The New Battle (Blu-ray) A bit longer than the first OVA and so this one has a bit more of a fleshed out story. The movie is still the peak Fatal Fury anime but I did like The New Battle, it was a solid and entertaining fighting game anime. Mobile Suit Gundam F91 (Blu-ray) I've...

    Appleseed (1988 OVA - Blu-ray) I've been a big fan of Appleseed ever since I first saw it in th 90's (and another anime I've now bought on 3 formats) and it still holds up well for me. I love the sinister edge it has as it tells it's story about humanity evolving to utopian societies and the...
