    Rewatching Food Wars S1 & S2, while waiting for S3-5 to appear, and wondering if there will ever be a mention of who Soma's mother was. Or did his dad cook him up in a kitchen one dark and stormy night?

    YU-Sibu (I Couldn't Become a Hero, So I Reluctantly Decided to Get a Job) - full series. I enjoyed this, although it did veer off about halfway through to a different storyline. Started our as our hero working in a small business, when a big competitor opened up nearby, and was gearing up to...

    UK Anime Distributor Anime Limited Discussion Thread

    I like surprise presents! That deal is certainly worthwhile.

    UK Anime Distributor Anime Limited Discussion Thread

    I got a copy on Monday (no idea why or from whom). I was assuming the Anime Fairies (but which anime?) were responsible.

    Nobunaga The Fool: currently on episode 17. Started out very promising, but it's got way too many unanswered questions and weird plot twists to maintain my interest. There are some good points but I'm not sure that's enough to make me want to watch it again. After this, I'll be starting on...

    Kickstarter Thread - Anime & Manga Projects

    I KNEW I shouldn't have looked at this thread! Now I've throw away a bunch of money for Dirty Pair (I went for the $135 Trouble Consultant option - and feel maybe I should have spent the extra £32 for the other lamp). I think it's still cheaper than my Gunsmith Cats pledge of a couple of years ago.

    Finished Yamada's First Time yesterday. Enjoyed it, and the commentaries were appropriately filthy. Now most of the way through Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid. Is it just me that is angrily obsessed with the appallingly non-aerodynamic dragons? I'm just too pedantic sometimes. And when will...

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

    it's been implied that Ed is in, but I don't know why they're being secretive about the casting... Maybe (I like to look for the simplest reason) it's to surprise the people out there who haven't seen the anime and don't know about Ed (there must be some poor sad deluded people who haven't...

    eBay have removed Animation/Anime from their genres

    It works most times, but in the last few weeks about one in four just refused to connect when I click the payment button and I'm forced to use a different method.

    eBay have removed Animation/Anime from their genres

    PayPal is optional, but eBay is making it harder to select (at least for me). I've had times when I couldn't get the link to work when buying something. Not saying it's deliberate, but....

    eBay have removed Animation/Anime from their genres

    I think eBay started with about 8%, then 10%, then they included the postage in the calculation (why they should get a cut of the postage charge is seriously beyond my understanding) and now it's 12.8%. Cuddly caring sharing company? Bah!

    eBay have removed Animation/Anime from their genres

    I think it goes along the lines of, we've made our site so irritating and confusing that people are no longer spending as much as they used to with us, so we will have to increase our charges and the percentage we take from the remaining buyers and sellers to keep our profits up, meaning more...

    The Anime/Manga I Bought Today Was...

    Yamada's First Time and Lupin III The First arrived this week, but I've been sidetracked rewatching Ouran High School Host Club (and wishing the live action version was available on DVD and not just a couple of Spanish subtitled episodes on youtube).

    The Anime/Manga I Bought Today Was...

    Ah, I assume this is due to the flaw in the region coding system, which has the US and Japan in the same region, and would mean (some cheapskate) Japanese people waiting for the much cheaper US releases otherwise.

    The Anime/Manga I Bought Today Was...

    My BluRay of Chaika the coffin princess arrived from the US today. Disc one plays fine in my Region B player, despite it stating Region A on the case! I've noticed this with some other (non-anime) BRs (all but one of the Mel Brooks boxset and all the Humphrey Bogart collection). The remastered...

    Early anime memories

    Astroboy, Kimba the white lion and Gigantor when I was young and absorbing the TV. First conscious decision was buying Bubblegum Crisis 2040 on DVD (one of the first to appear on DVD in Australia back in the late 90s), mostly out of curiosity. After than, I was hooked.

    The Anime/Manga I Bought Today Was...

    Well, I finally cracked and ordered the complete collection of Coffin Princess Chaika from the US (eBay), as season 2 may never be released here. And while I was there I slipped and ordered a copy of Ai Yori Aoshi, as I gave my previous copy to my nieces in Australia years ago and I can't pop...

    The Anime/Manga I Bought Today Was...

    Following recommendations on this site, I bought School Rumble season 1 & 2 from the US (from the same eBay seller - RareWavesUS - and posted at the same time). Season 2 arrived two weeks ago and season one finally arrived today! Now I have to finish watching That Time I Got Reincarnated As A...
