    Netflix's Live-Action Cowboy Bebop to Release This November

    I think he's late 50s but he looks younger than Cho :p. If they kept Spike like the series where he's still young & was a naughty boy in his teen years then I'd agree but they seem to have made him older & more baggage ridden in the live action, plus they're focusing a lot more on vicious.

    Netflix's Live-Action Cowboy Bebop to Release This November

    Watched a couple of episodes, it's both better than I expected and worse. They got the atmosphere down well & the casting isn't quite as bad as I thought (the only Jet for me will always be Michael Jai White though :p). Milf man does a passable Spike but he doesn't look quite right. Given...

    eBay have removed Animation/Anime from their genres

    They got the postage wrong with mine as well. I gave all the details but they generated the wrong label & I had to pay the difference. When I initially listed it, it was a £1 listing but it relisted which I think is why I got hit with a much higher charge. I am really starting to hate ebay...

    eBay have removed Animation/Anime from their genres

    Because I'd never used ebay to sell before? I did mention it. When I looked on a calculation site it suggested I should get just shy of £55

    Collecting US-Release Anime

    I think most Bluray players are region free for dvd now aren't they? At least it's been my experience with numerous models.

    eBay have removed Animation/Anime from their genres

    I listed an auction item, it sold for £62 with postage & I only got £50 out of it. First and last time I'll sell on ebay. No fancy addons etc, just a basic 5 day auction. Anime from Malaysia is the worst, most outdated & poorly compressed pirate shi*te I have ever seen. Bootlegs were better...

    Is there much difference between this release of ricki-oh & the arrow release?

    Eurovision 2006

    Ryan Air. Everyone was charged an extra fee upon leaving the auditorium & the performers were sent back to Ryan Air's dilapidated, roach infested, old prison training camp near Hahn Germany to continue paying off their uniforms.

    I'm envious. I have a bunch of the live performances on dvd/Bluray from Japan like distant worlds, black mages etc along with the cd's (also got a couple of the guitar tab books) all of which I covet.

    UK Anime Distributor Anime Limited Discussion Thread

    You totally can! Lots of online places do pretty discreet packaging & depending on your gender there's some/lots of not so suspicious looking stuff too. Of course you could also get a friend to send you/smuggle you one in a Teddy or something (poor Teddy)

    Has anime become more mainstream?

    I can't say La Blue Girl, Bible Black, Urotsukidoji, Mezzo Forte, Kite etc have ever really sparked my libido :p. For some bizarre reason, younger me collected as much that was banned or censored in the UK as possible, resulting in some damn awful film ownership not just anime (Stuff like Ebola...

    Has anime become more mainstream?

    My parents watch anime on netflix. It makes me cringe, that said if my children get into it and learn what some of the titles I have consist of, or are about, I imagine they will also be cringing :P

    I wasn't suggesting you did :).

    The General Conversation Area

    I have some messy mental stuff but nothing on the overly physical aside from a crooked spine/mismatch in leg length ^_^; (it's not a huge issue until I get towards OAP apparently). I'm sorry for being self absorbed when this is such a temporary state of being & others don't have the luxury.

    Thanks. Little'un has sprung back, she threw up 3 times last night & hasn't since so here's hoping. Me on the other hand: I can't stand up, even laying down I'm dizzy & sore... thrown up so much & so I often that I've pulled or strained most my chest/side muscles to the point that anything but...
