    Anime versus reality, interesting video

    This isn't about voice acting per se as it is about scripted dialogue, and how anime characters' language differs from real world Japanese. I guess not every toddler speaks like Stewie Griffin

    Renting discs by post is still a thing?

    I was just curious about this, and it turns out that there is a company called Cinema Paradiso which still does the old discs by post thing, Blu-ray and DVD. So any of these anime not available to stream? https://www.cinemaparadiso.co.uk/world-cinema/anime-and-animation/page-1/?sortby=0,inc=0

    So what just happened at UK Anime Network?

    Last week a podcast was put up that apparently offended several people, and was subsequently pulled... The fallout has included a resignation, change in editorial staff.

    New Site: Bugs, Feedback, and Questions

    Now that the front of the site is back, I suppose it's inevitable that this thread would be necessary, so I took the liberty of starting it with a question... Is there any alphabetical listing of reviews to browse through as on the old site, or the possibility of creating one? Otherwise...

    What do you think about audio commentaries?

    Are they just filler to "make up" extras where Japanese companies are unwilling to part with material, or are they of actual use and of interest? I love me a Clementary, as he's to anime what Bey Logan is to kung fu, always informative, always interesting, and always entertaining. You learn...

    Funimation.com got hacked...

    UK Anime Network has the news. I had a quick look at my account, and all I have on there is my e-mail address and a password. No identity to steal. I tried the HPI Identity leak checker and it seems that August 2016, an account was compromised, which would tally with what the news item says...

    How do new anime fans get into the medium?

    When I were a lad, this was all fields as far as the eye could see, and they used to show anime on TV. That's how I got into anime, stubling across Channel 4's Late License and watching shows like Legend of the 4 Kings, and Cyber City Oedo 808, as well as catching movies like Akira and Wings of...

    Brexit and the UK Anime Industry!

    Well it happened, despite Jerome's dire warnings of catastrophe, and we're on the way out. If you were thinking about importing some anime, you might be pausing right now, given that the pound plummeted last night. That might be good for the UK anime companies in the short term, the aggrieved...

    Animatsu announce Future Diary on behalf of Kaze via Manga

    It's Kaze :( Thought it was an Animatsu joint as it was posted on their Facebook feed, but since Animatsu, Manga and Kaze are one big happy family, it's a bit of pot luck as to who brings out what!

    Manganimatsu have Chuunibyo

    I can't tell from this reportif Manga have licensed it or Animatsu have. They both seem to be speaking with one voice here. But yay! Chuunibyo, and please don't mess this one up Manga. I like this one too much to brook any of the usual nonsense.
