    Anime at the cinema

    Resurrecting this thread to say that I went to see Josee, the Tiger and the Fish at the cinema this evening and rather enjoyed it. Might have to do with the fact this was the first cinema trip in a while too!

    The Q & A Thread (for questions that do not need a thread)

    If you're ordering a few blu-rays they'll probably box them up. I've never used the magazine trick myself, but I know of it, so I wouldn't know what to suggest, sorry! The few things I've recieved in jiffy bags (sometimes I get a box sometimes a bag for single blu-rays) from them have always...

    The Q & A Thread (for questions that do not need a thread)

    They're both fine picks, personally I normally go with Amazon as they pre-pay the customs by default (though that might be an option now on cdjapan too, unsure). Basically Amazon will be faster but more expensive, but you know exactly what you're paying. Cdjapan will be cheaper, but you may get...

    Defective or Disappointing UK Anime Discs

    Thanks for checking! I may have picked up another variant in the meantime, and that plays fine, so seems I was just unlucky and got a mispress!

    Defective or Disappointing UK Anime Discs

    Since technically it's 'Anime' in a 'Disc' format (I might be stretching this definition a bit). Has anyone had any issues with their copy of Evangelion Finally? My pressing seems dire, large and frequent distortions (plays out as a hiss) on disc one. Record itself doesn't look particularly...

    Hey ho, been a while since I posted, or bought much recently! But happened upon this on a JP auction site and snagged it immediately. Felt the need to share.

    The News Thread (for news that does not need a thread)

    As a quick FYI, orders are open for the Tower of God sound selection on Vinyl if any of you are into that sort of thing. I picked up the MiA ost from them last year and everything was great.

    Made in Abyss: Dawn of the Deep Soul Launches Virtually This Month

    Doh' feel silly for not realising that. Wonder if I can lure some people off the street around me for £5 each to try and recoup.

    Made in Abyss: Dawn of the Deep Soul Launches Virtually This Month

    Lame, was really looking forward to this too. I might have taken them up on this a few months ago, but we're only a week or two off the BD release now... Don't quite understand how they're justifying the cost when I can get a physical cinema ticket for less, or almost 6 months of film streaming...

    Managed both the high evo films this evening, also think I'm going to run out of space in the OP if I don't keep the word counts down...

    UK Anime Distributor Anime Limited Discussion Thread

    Ah, thanks for the writeup! I really disliked Pocketful of Rainbows as it kinda vomited haphazardly all over the fond memory I had of the original series, sounds like this does much the same, they really need to let sleeping Eurekas lie. Though doing a bit of reading around Anemone, it seems...

    UK Anime Distributor Anime Limited Discussion Thread

    What did you make of Pocketful of Rainbows if you ever watched that out of interest? Trying to gauge where I'm likely to fall on this Hi-Evo spectrum.

    UK Anime Distributor Anime Limited Discussion Thread

    This looks like a pretty good month as I've yet to see half of those. Seems odd that it's the 2nd part of high evo rather than the first though. For anyone who's kept up with them, assuming I've seen the original series, do I need to watch part 1 of high evo to make sense of Anemone? (Or is...

    Didn't have a cathedral in it, so wasn't technically a city hunter... Mixing error on the Japanese audio after doing some of my own private eye work.

    Dinged Utena gang reporting in, I'll probably just display it the other way around. It's a cool set though, mighty pleased.

    The Q & A Thread (for questions that do not need a thread)

    I find the bigger the order the better they package it. For example; I've had a couple of individual Blu-ray digipacks from them that were just jiffy bagged which got mangled. But if I ordered a couple of things together they would box it and tape it down pretty well. Think there's a bit of a...

    Screen Anime in Review

    I kinda kid, there's a good theme of personal growth in there too, just be aware that it is a romance overall and there is melodrama involved.
