    Why did I choose the days just before AL's easter sale to be better with money? Would've loved to pick up that Eureka Seven ultimate ed for £35. Fullmetal Alchemist TV sets were quite cheap too. Decided I wouldn't look at the sale for fear of going a bit nuts (financial discipline has not been...

    4K Blu Ray collection & Upcoming Releases discussion thread

    It's nuts to think how far we've come in terms of home video releases for cult/arthouse/foreign movies and anime. Crazy that we have so many choices both domestically and import wise. Man I remember the days when almost no UK DVDs were worth buying over their US counterparts and if you liked...

    4K Blu Ray collection & Upcoming Releases discussion thread

    Thanks @Yami and @HWR. It's insane the stuff you can do with this thing. I must say I'm very impressed. Watched Guardians of the galaxy Vol 2 in Dolby vision with Dolby Atmos on Disney plus last night and the colours were amazing. I saw it at the cinema and I'm not even sure it looked that...

    4K Blu Ray collection & Upcoming Releases discussion thread

    Excellent. Had looked at a few vids but have seen a lot of contradictory info online, oh well. That's the internet for you I guess, at the end of the day it's all opinion. Thanks HWR: I will check that out now as I'm setting everything up.

    4K Blu Ray collection & Upcoming Releases discussion thread

    I just had a new TV delivered yesterday so I'm pleased to say I'm joining you all in the heady realm of 4K. I have my cables and a spanking new 4K player with multi region mod. The question is though: as a HDR newb what settings do you more experienced people recommend for films and gaming? I...

    Today's arrivals. Ebay finds since both of these editions are out of print. Lupin was sealed and drifters was watched once and only opened at one end. Quite happy with these especially for the price.

    I'm cheating as this came on Saturday :) but what the hell. Here's a recent manga/book haul and one blu ray.

    What did you RECEIVE today? PHOTOS EDITION!

    I love coming on here and seeing the wealth of purchases from you all. It makes me think actually I'm not that bad with my spending on anime/manga stuff :) Also side note: I really wish Funimation and other blu ray companies would get rid of that blue banner that says Blu ray/DVD and digital at...

    Berserk

    Has anyone picked up this book? Berserk: Written in Darkness by Quentin Boeton. It's a recent release, just came out in December in English (the author is French so it's been out there for a while in its native language). I got it on Saturday. It's an exploration of the themes and mythology of...

    Got a nice set of deliveries yesterday. One from Amazon (Dragon Ball Super) and all the others from Rightstuf.

    Oooh Yakuza: Like A Dragon. Yakuza/Ryu Ga Gotoku is definitely my favourite ongoing game series. I've been into it since the PS2 days when I randomly found the original in a bargain bin in PC world (of all places!) and decided to give it a try. The rest is history. I've bought every single game...

    Yeah i can't see Discotek doing a remaster of a long series like Harlock but hopefully a Japanese release will emerge and they can use that. Original Yamato and The Cockpit are fantastic. Would be great to see those in HD.

    HWR: I got the Batman Beyond set a while back. Hope you enjoy it. I think it's a solid series and a really good accompanying piece/bookend to Batman The Animated series to boot. It felt like quite an ambitious show much like Batman TAS was in the 90's. I know what you mean about the Funko pop, I...

    Retro Anime Podcast - Episode 26 'Mecha March 2021'

    The Doraemon episode was absolutely brilliant! Those Toyota commercials with Jean Reno are an amazing find Prof. Hadn't heard about these before.

    Finished re-watching Samurai 7 the other day. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Really great characters who show a lot of development and growth, cool setting and and a truly reprehensible villain who you just can't wait to see get his just desserts. It has one of those finales where you've grown very...

    Samurai 7 Episodes 6 - 17 Still really enjoying my rewatch of this. Fell off with watching it a little this past week due to some pretty crappy events happening in my life lately but it is a very solid show. The evolution of the characters throughout is really good and its paced really well...

    I have no idea what "White line doom" is either. Some kind of packaging/printing defect?

    Samurai 7 Episodes 1-5 Orgun pointed out this was on Netflix and I was in the mood to revisit it. I remember quite liking it at the time but it might even be better than I gave it credit for. I love Kurosawa's original film and though this is a totally different beast in many ways it does...

    I think the deal's good (particularly since you get multiple versions of the movies and commentaries and a huge wedge of special features plus the entire Dark Horse comic mini-series and a book of reproduced articles), However I can see what Aaron means, it's probably not for someone who likes...
