    Selling a lot of stuff on eBay

    Hi guys, I know it doesn't look like I've been around here for a while - when uni kicked in, I lost a lot of my free time, but I've still been reading the front page every day, and I occasionally take a look at the forums to see how everyone's getting on. I'm having a big clearance right...

    Japanese documentary about anime overseas

    Worth watching if you have 100 minutes free. It's not subtitled, but you can pretty much work out what they're talking about most of the time. It has a lot of interesting things in it, such as the original voice actors' reactions to the foreign dub voices. http://www.japanprobe.com/?p=5040

    Studio Ghibli or Pixar?

    Thought this would make a good discussion. Studio Ghibli and Pixar are almost each other's Eastern/Western equivalent - both revolutionary animation studios that have never really made a bad movie. Not to mention both studios are friends. But (and asking this on an anime forum might end up with...

    You know...

    One day I want to see the main character accidentally do something perverted to a female character (say, walk in on her changing), and the female character saying "It's alright, I know it was an accident", instead of punching him to China. I just begin to feel so sorry for those characters!

    Sonic Unleashed

    Pics and Footage for Sonic Unleashed (probably on PS3 and 360), have been popping up, and I think it looks awesome. It merges 2D and 3D gameplay (with emphasis on 2D), and looks like the prettiest Sonic game ever. From what footage we have, it looks to have an Indian-African setting. I am...

    Question about FMA manga

    I recently finished watching FMA, and decided to pick up the manga series, seriously this time. So I ordered volumes 3 and 4 from Amazon. However, when they arrived, I noticed they were very different colours. One was "shiny", while the other was not, and was a much lighter shade of grey on the...

    Are ADV going bust or something?

    First Anime Network, now Newtype. Yes, unfortunately ADV just announced that they are cancelling Newtype USA, as of February. http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/20 ... ublication This is rubbish, Newtype was a great read on the rare occasion I could get my hands on it. I'm certainly...

    Never thought I'd say this, but... recommend me something.

    I've been reading manga for two and a half years, so I'm no newbie. But over the past few months I've been finding it hard to discover a series worth reading, and with most of my favourite series either ending or getting released very slowly, I'm finding myself with nothing to read. My...

    Haruhi DVD 1 R1 for sale

    Hey everyone, I'm selling volume 1 of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. I bought it a few months back due to the hype, but it isn't my type of thing. It is the official US release, from Bandai. Though, as such it is a Region 1 DVD and will not play on a regular UK player. It has the first...

    Brave Story and it's whereabouts

    I've been waiting for Optimum to release Brave Story for a while, now. I read the novel, and really enjoyed it, and I would love to see it animated. But the DVD movie release seems to be constantly delayed. It used to be September, was delayed to Otober, to late October, now I can't even find a...

    MVM *ahem* cutting costs...

    Last week I ordered the three Urusei Yatsura movies MVM had for 99p each. I decided against it a few hours later and requested a cancellation. However, my request was ignored and the order remained static for a week, until yesterday when it was finally dispatched. I thought "Oh well then...

    Zelda fans! Come hither! (website plug)

    Hey everyone, first of all this is not a random plug for a fansite I've just started up like all those other plugs you see. It's an established site with years and years of experience and history. Anyway, I'm a member of the team at a site called Zelda Elements. Some of you might remember it...

    Interesting parallels...

    http://www.japanprobe.com/?p=2698#comments The Simpsons, which has only a small cult fanbase in Japan, is having it's voice actors replaced for the Japanese version of the movie, from the original cast to a more famous line-up of TV personalities in order to boost ticket sales. The fans are...

    Revive the series

    I decided the "kill the series" needed a sister topic. So, what series do you think need revived, or need more titles? I'll start with the obvious Shenmue. It NEEDS finished. The Sonic Adventure series could have gone on for a bit longer, Sonic Heroes was unneeded, and mediocre. Skies of Arcadia...

    Anyone finding it hard to get ahold of Newtype USA?

    I'm not an avid Newtype reader (mainly due to the price), but I buy it every so often. But I've began to notice recently that I haven't been able to find it anywhere! Normally they stock it in Forbidden Planet or another comic shop in Glasgow, but FP only stock the Japanese version (which is...

    Naruto readers...

    Time to start saving for September. Viz have announced that they are releasing 12 volumes of Naruto over four months, starting September. http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/press-r ... 007-04-26/ Well, I think we can all stop moaning about the slow release dates now. This is certainly...

    Anyone starting uni this year?

    I've just accepted an offer to do a five year Computer Science course at Strathclyde Uni. I was wondering, is anyone else here off to uni this year, and if so, where to? (sorry, I'm not really one for big topic intros.)

    Download Festival

    I have a feeling this topic is going to crash and burn, but I'll give it a shot anyway. Anyone going to Download Festival this year? I just got my ticket, the thought of Megadeth and Iron Maiden (and laughing at My Chemical Romance getting bottled) sold me instantly. I think I'll have to...

    "Weird Japanese Stuff"

    That's exactly what a little posh eight year old's mum called the anime section in HMV while I was having a browse. Now I'm used to this. I once heard one lesser educated person call it "chinky ****". But the conversation I overheard between this boy and his mum was amusing. "Wait mum, I want...
