    Earrthsea London screening

    I have had a quick scan of the forum and couldn't see this mentioned, so forgive me if someone's posted this already. I've just had the NFT/BFI Southbank listings in the post with the news that Tales from Earthsea will be screening in the NFT 1 on Saturday 28th July at 2:40 pm. I don't know...

    Warrior King - 28th July

    It's all there in the title - Warrior King is coming out in cinemas on the 28th of July. If you've seen Ong Bak, this is the next Tony Jaa film (at least its English release title) and if you haven't seen Ong Bak you owe it to yourself to if you are remotely interested in films of the...

    Wii price here So £120 for a directly converted price, I doubt it will go for more than £150 when it's released here.

    Kyou Kara Ore Wa!

    Kyou Kara Ore Wa! is an OAV series from 1992, as far as I can tell with no DVD release so fansub only at the moment. It's about Musashi, a schoolboy new in town who has a dream - to be the bad-boy rebel of the school. He puts his plan into action by getting his haird done...but! Another...

    Probing your brains...

    What is the best manga that you have read that doesn't involve much comic relief, you know the traditional devices, bug-eyed reactions and super-deformed moments... Basically I'm looking for something a little more serious and uncompromising.

    Games imports

    What is the best site to import games from? Lots of Gamecube games will just never come out here, and while I've used some importers before I wonder what sites the crazy Japanese PS2 RPG lovers here would recommend. I'm particularly after Chibi Robo which I doubt we'll ever see in the UK...

    Hanbu No Tsuki Ga Noboru Sora

    A series about a boy and a girl, who meet in a hospital where they are being treated and start on the rocky road of romance. What I love about this series is that it's not so easy to pigeonhole the characters into a particular type. They all have their flaws and do seemingly stupid things at...

    Ergo Proxy

    Just watched the fansub of the first episode, Awakening, and was quite impressed. It's a cyberpunk sci-fi offering, featuring autoraves which are the cyborgs/robots/androids in this vision of the future, and an infection, "cogito", which they catch and causes them to wreak havoc. Some sort of...

    Sci-fi manga

    Can anyone recommend any? I'd like to branch out from fantasy epics and japanese high schools, and I'd rather read something that wasn't also an anime.

    Is anyone else reading this manwha? It's a sword and sorcery epic, with influences from Norse mythology. I think there's meant to be an anime version but from what little I've seen all the characters are different.

    Ikki Tousen

    I've got to admit this is pretty tempting. Art box and manga? But is it worth getting? I saw a random episode a while back, it seemed okay but is it the kind of thing you'd want to watch again (for anything other than the fan service)? Damn them and their art box and manga :!:

    UK Anime Blu-ray & DVD Bargains

    I think it would be good if people could keep an eye out and then inform everyone of when they see cheap deals on UK animé DVDs, like the current sale for instance. To start this off, I'll say that the next HMV sale (starting 27th September?) will include a lot of Manga releases...
