    Manga the collection R2 DVD

    Ah, yeah those were sold in newsagents along with a magazine, much like those partworks model kits where you need to keep buying the magazine to get the next part to build the model. I'm not sure how many there were in total or what all the titles were, but I'll ask around, I do know some folk...

    Way of the Househusand ep7 Komi Can't Communicate ep1 The lack of subs for the onscreen text is irritating, but I'm broadly on board with this. From the panels I’d seen of the manga, I assumed it was played more purely for laughs though - the anime seems to be trying very hard to emulate a...

    Way of the Househusband ep6 Irina the Vampire Cosmonaut ep1-2 This seems surprisingly decent. The romance element is fairly ordinary, but the daffy 'let's put vampires in space to see if it's safe' premise is certainly novel, and I appreciate how fully they've committed to the mid-century...

    Yawara ep12 Lupin III: Part VI ep1 Some slightly iffy 3D work aside, Part 6 is off to a very strong start. I am surprised that they seem to have modelled Sherlock Holmes on the Robert Downey Jr. incarnation though, given Benedict Cumberbatch’s apparent popularity in Japan.

    Retro Anime Podcast - Next Episode

    I'd be interested if you guys have any thoughts on why City Hunter didn't seem to catch on when it was first released in English (if indeed it's fair to say that). To the best of my knowledge, ADV put the whole thing out on DVD in the US, and even released a few of the films over here, but it's...

    City Hunter ep21-22 I’d completely forgotten that 22 has an off-brand James Bond as the ‘baddie’, right down to the lovingly rendered Aston Martin. Unlike the caricature of Arnie earlier in the series though, it’s not such an obvious likeness of a particular actor, but, given the heavy...

    No Time to Die Shockingly, I’ve pretty much wound up agreeing with what everyone else is saying; this is a very solid final outing for Daniel Craig as Bond that doesn’t feel its hefty running time, although I don’t think it quite measures up to the oddly perfect Skyfall. The film is at its...

    My Senpai is Annoying ep1 Ganbare, Doukichan ep1 The art for this is cute, but I think it's not one for me. Maybe it works better as a 4-koma, but even at 6 minutes, it doesn't feel like there's much to it. Lupin III: Part VI ep0 It's nice that they went to the trouble of giving Kiyoshi...

    I always liked the music for Zombi 2, I think it really evokes both the Caribbean setting and the creeping feeling of inescapable dread that seems to dominate the film. Not sure I’d recommend sitting through it, but for a bit of a laugh, it’s worth checking out Zombie Holocaust (aka Doctor...

    Oof... Yeah, Dirty Pair is a show that I would like to own an artbook for, but I don't know that I fancy dropping $85 on it. Thanks anyway.

    Could someone indulge my laziness - how much is the artbook anyway?

    Kids don't know that this is like at least the fourth time Hitler has turned up in a Lupin anime. Yeah, I didn't get it either and my friend who was with me said the same thing. I was amused that they went there, but I didn't think it was that funny... Pompo the Cinephile (2020) A fresh and...

    Lupin III: The First (2019) A solid entry into the franchise, Lupin's first full CGI outing suffers with a slightly routine 'safe' story in the vein of what we've come to expect from the TV specials, although this is a little sharper than they generally come, and much elevated by its...

    Yawara ep8-10 I think Yawara's own personality is starting to come through now, she feels more like a definite character than just a cog in the wider story.

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

    If I was to hazard a guess, I suspect they may have cast a non-binary actor as Ed and either fear a potential backlash from the trolls, or at the very least, want to wait until the series drops so that they can be judged on their performance, not their identity.

    The Ninth Configuration (1980) A thematic sequel of sorts to The Exorcist, this is a deeply strange film that sees Stacy Keach's distant-but-sincere army psychiatrist placed in command of a remote hospital for traumatised veterans, where he becomes obsessed with the case of an astronaut who...
