    HdE's big-ish anime sale

    Hi folks! This is a bit of a first for me. I'm selling off a stack of old anime, mostly to make room at home and recoup some funds. I've checked over the rules for this sub-forum, and everything I'm about to post here seems in keeping with previous sales threads I've seen. But if anything's...

    HdE's Totally Unoriginal Gaming Show

    Hello, folks! I decided I'd make a clean break and start a new thread here to announce (or re-announce - Youtube and certain other parties have made this far from easy) that my gaming channel venture has finally gone live as of... uhh... five minutes ago, I guess. I've done a straight...

    Sentai's on-screen notes really annoy me. What do you guys think?

    Okay - I've just finished my first late night anime marathon in a LONG while, and I've spotted something on the discs I watched tonight that I think bears a bit of discussion. Please note: as this is a subject that speaks directly to what seems to have become one distributor's practice, that's...

    Two billion years after eveyone else had one... I've got a Nintendo Wii!

    Well, here's a turn up! A little while ago, after coming into a bit of bonus cash, I went and bought myself a Nintendo Wii, brand new in box, off of Ebay. What can I say? I like stuff that's old and almost obsolete. Note that I mean the old style Wii, not the Wii U. It was a pretty modest...

    Quality control for physical releases - this needs to be addressed

    Well, time for an angry HdE rant. Today, I took delivery of what will be the last anime I buy until next year - a second hand mint copy of the Giant Robo economy pack and two brand new sets of RightStuf!'s Victory Gundam release. Sadly, the RightStuf! discs continue a trend I've noticed of...

    The official thread for discussions about anime pricing (including Aniplex USA pricing)

    Ugh. Dat Madoka. That's a bloody terrible price for a 12 episode show. Then again, what do we expect from Aniplex these days?

Brainjar TV is DONE. It's finished. BUT... HdE Does Anime launches within a matter of DAYS! (Yes, I know it's...

    Brainjar TV - HdE's Youtube channel

    Yep. Pretty much what the thread title says. I figured I'd try putting together a Youtube anime review channel as a little side project to everything else I'm doing. Because, evidently, I'm a masochist who needs even more things to do in the week. I've already got a couple of reviews up...

    Shows we want in the UK - possible site feature

    Howdy ho, everyone - just a quick advance warning of something I've been talking about with the site staff behind the scenes, which everyone can help with. During discussions on AUKN, the point seems to keep coming up that fans need to speak up about the shows they'd like to see in the UK...

    Greg Ayres is my new hero!

    Does that qualify as a controversial statement around here? ;) Seriously - I've been doing a bit of research into issues pertaining to piracy, fansubs and bootlegging lately, and discovered some really fantastic material on YouTube. Anyhoo, as it turns out, the much-maligned Greg Ayres is...

    Replacing broken cases

    Hey all - just posting this because its driving me mad lately. I had a couple of items arrive from the States last week which didn't fare too well in the post. The cases - a 6x DVD and a 4x DVD - were pretty badly damaged, leaving the discs to flap about loosely on their hinged trays. Given...

    Broken Goddess Athena - a webcomic by HdE

    Like the title says, basically. It's not even remotely rooted in manga or anime, but I figured I'd post a link to my ongoing web comic, Broken Goddess Athena. It's been getting some really positive feedback of late, but very little in the way of public support so far. Natch. You can read it...
