Sorry if this has already been pointed out; didn't see another thread about it.
On the 10th of November, there's going to be a screening of Mamoru Oshii's Patlabor movie at the Filmhouse in Edinburgh (on Lothian Rd), at 11pm.
Also, on the 17th there's going to be a Makoto Shinkai...
I would like to humbly suggest that everyone calms the **** down.
Okay, there were edits. Above and beyond the US version.
You people are looking at this all wrong. Anime on TV isn't an end in itself. It's a means to bring more people into the fold. How many of us UK fans got...
I can't help but feel we're putting every hope we have on Naruto. Even considering I personally loathe the show, I've still got my fingers crossed. As far as anime on TV goes, Naruto is the proof of concept - that if you market the show properly, give it a reasonable timeslot and put it on a...
I wouldn't have thought Yukihiro "Nobu" Kotani looked particularly nerdy, at least not in a "realistic" sense.
Like Shougo Kawada? He's not so much "nerd", but he is an outsider.
Shuya Nanahara? I know he didn't actually kill anybody except Kitano, but you've basically described...
I had a feeling this was coming after the Tokyopop/FUNimation distribution deal in the US.
My first reaction was that MVM might get a chance to bring some of Tokyopop's anime out in the UK... Given their ties to FUNimation, I thought MVM might have something on the cards, plus they're the...
I've spent the last 20 minutes poking around the Jetix page linked by Anime.org.uk's article, and I can't find anything about Naruto.
Their article was posted on the 8th, though - maybe the info was slipped and has been taken down since?
I think SciFi could do well with anime; there's plenty of stuff out there that would fit into their schedule without any problems, even beyond the obvious "giant robot" stuff.
They've got plenty of "supernatural" things (not least their new "Medium" series), so I can see something like...
I have the first volume of that from the States, but haven't gotten round to watching it yet. I saw the opening episode on a NewType disc, and it seemed interesting, but it's really the dub cast that I'm interested in more than the show itself.
What language is it going to be shown in?
I can't see Jetix screening it subtitled, in either Japanese or French, and ANN doesn't make any mention of an American or UK license-holder who might dub it...
The VRA1984 doesn't apply to imports; it's limitations are only applied to retailers in the UK; it's not illegal to buy unrated material (from the US, for instance), only to sell it.
It's not illegal to import either - so long as you pay the applicable HRMC&E value.
Get off your paranoid conspiracy, guys - they cut it because hanging is an "imitable technique" that doesn't necessarily require you to break the law first, and kids might try it if it seems like a laugh. Yes, it's an 18-rated DVD, but how many people here never saw an 18 film before they were 18?
