    Are you proud to be British (or wherever you're from)

    Given that this is a website where we celebrate aspects of Japanese culture, and I suspect few of us are of Japanese heritage, I'd say that it's largely positive with no discernible negatives.

    Are you proud to be British (or wherever you're from)

    To me, patriotism is nationalism++. It's when people start talking about fighting for, dying for, and killing for their country, a necessary survival state in the time of war, but at any other time, what's the point?

    Are you proud to be British (or wherever you're from)

    I have no time for patriotism or nationalism. It's practically sinful in my eyes, because the display of pride in one's national identity usually degenerates into denigrating someone else.

    The News Thread (for news that does not need a thread)

    I think in any harem anime comedy where a boy pratfalls face first into a girl's cleavage counts as molestation.

    The News Thread (for news that does not need a thread)

    The BBFC change their guidelines... might have an effect on some anime. Stricter age ratings for film rape scenes No sexual violence for under 15 year-olds. I wonder if every Carry On where Sid James slaps Barbara Windsor on the **** will have to be re-rated. Incidentally, the BBFC also wants...

    UK Anime Blu-ray & DVD Bargains

    Shipping reads as FREE over $50. That can't be right? Had $55 of items in my basket and that's what it said.

    I didn't think I'd be Flip Flapping on Blu that quickly. Having seen the show on MVM's own authored DVDs, this was one I was definitely going to get on Blu, both for the show, and for the authoring.,

    Anime Limited 12 Days of Christmas 2018

    Joe Public don’t know from Sony DADC, and don’t frequent forums. All they know is they ordered something from AL, and it hasn’t turned up.

    UK Anime Distributor MVM Entertainment Discussion Thread

    Went on AoL to check my Day 11 orders (got everything else before Christmas and didn't go for the mystery box), and saw that the orders were completed. Had a bit of a panic that I hadn't received a dispatch notice, and thought about e-mailing, checked my spam filter first, and while I was doing...

    $50 odd dollars on a BD lottery ticket is more than I wish to pay.
