    The Retro Anime Thread

    This is the place to discuss, recommend or review anime that is considered a bit retro. For clarification: Anime made after 2000 should not be discussed here. The reason for this is that the year 2000 is a nice cut-off point; the anime boom was at it's peak and animation was becoming digitised...

    Is anime inaccessible for those on lower income?

    I thought that this would be a great topic to open up some debate. I'm a mature student of nearly 30 years of age, I have a part-time job, pay extortionate rent etc. In other words, I am pretty poor as my income is extremely limited and most goes on my rent (such is life). When I first joined...

    Sailor Moon to get a new anime series in summer 2013! Source As a big fan of Sailor Moon, I'm happy with this announcement. But I worry they may moe-ify the designs! Wonder if they are going for a remake or a completely new anime series.

    Asian Live Action TV Recommendations

    This is an area which I don't venture into much - as there is such a vast amount out there. I'm just looking for something which is good to watch, although mileage may vary! I've watched (for those who are interested): Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon - Enjoyed this a lot despite it being aimed...

    Anime that never made the VHS to DVD transition in the UK

    I'm not talking about anime that are unlicensed in general - but those that were shown on U.K. TV and just didn't make it to DVD transition (let alone Blu-Ray!) Sometimes I wish I had kept my VHS tapes! I remember some classics back in the day when Sci-Fi channel and others had anime on...

    What's your preference? Separate volumes or Thin Paks?

    Apologies if a similar topic has been posted before! This thought of separate vs thin paks occurred to me while I was looking through my anime collection. Most of the DVDs I own are separate volumes - as was the norm when I bought most of my anime. Now it is more often the case that thin paks...

    Has anime gone downhill in quality recently?

    I'm throwing this up as a general discussion point. In your view has anime recently been giving great quality titles or is something of a lackluster moot point? For me personally, I struggle to find titles that I'd want to watch. I might just have my rose tinted spectacles on permanently...

    Hello...It's been a while!

    Hi everyone! Just thought I'd say hello. I'm not technically new - but I haven't posted here for a few years and was out of the anime scene for a while. I'm probably a bit out of touch with the new anime series/seasons that are currently running, so be gentle :P But I'm slowly but surely...

    Neppy's 1337 Art Part 2

    Rather than drag my old art thread from beyond the ages back up, I'll make a new one. I haven't drawn a picture in ages, but found myself doodling on good old MS Paint. I was going to leave this one uncoloured - but even one tone is better than none! Here is my made up character called...

    V For Vendetta

    Just watched this and felt the need to rant! :wink: Much like The Island, V for Vendetta was one of the films which had potential to be something epic and then ended up falling flat on it's own ideas of greatness. In VFV Pseudo-Britain aka England, is full of US styled TV news, US styled...

    TV Drama Recommendations

    Much in the same vein as my PC topic, I am looking for some good TV to watch - because I only watch it for Home & Away and Neighbours! I might be missing out on a good series! I haven't found anything good to watch since the 1996-ish series like Bad Girls, X-Files, Xena Warrior Princess and...

    Sony says no to PS3 pre-owned games

    Sony wants more money and their plans for world domination continues! Apparently, we won't be able to buy second hand PS3 games/consoles or sell them because it 'belongs' to Sony. Full article here...

    Sailor Moon S

    I have decided to shed more light onto Sailor Moon, but especially series 3 named Sailor Moon S (Super) aka. Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon S. Most people think it's exactly like the first two series, where Sailor Moon saves the day with a monster of the week. Well it is, but then it isn't. SMS...

    Eurovision 2006

    It's that time of year again! Will anyone else be watching this cheesefest? I had my hopes that Belgium might make it to the final - sadly not the case! I like the Malta and Sweden entries although I don't know if they'll win it. The favourites seem to be Finland with thier (horrible) heavy...
