I am interested in Now and Then, Here and There and Otogi Zoshi.
Two salient points for you to consider before deciding to initiate the transaction:
I'm in South Africa.
I will only have the required funds from 25/11.
Thanks for at least hearing me out.
Re: [Overseas] US/Foreign Anime News & Announcements
If you like anti-heroes, then there few better done than Gokudo Yuccot Kikansky. He's selfish, amoral, disloyal and extremely flatulent.....and those are his good points.
I’ll spare you the elaborate intro and state upfront that Steins; Gate is a superb anime; perfect in fact.
The story revolves around time travel and its moral and ethical ramifications. The real beauty though is how it handles the time travel aspect without any overtly sci-fi props...
Michiko & Hatchin
Publishers love dropping names. It’s a fact. They’ll say anything; establish any connection – however tenuous – to tie their title to a more celebrated peer, all in the name of drumming up sales. That’s why more often than not a cover may proclaim “From the makers of <insert...
Re: Overseas Anime News & Announcements
My question is how much of the nuance and character depth will be lost in translation and replaced with wisecracks and cheap jokes, as is usually the case when anime comes to US TV networks.
And there you have it, straight from the source following the NYCC announcement.
You'll forgive my skepticism, but their handling of the situation has does not exactly fill me with confidence. I'd rather wait until 3 February 2016 when the 3.33 blu-ray is listed as "Available to Order" or any...
With the local currency being what it is, I've found myself having to shop smarter to stretch my funds. Thus I made a number of purchases from Amazon and Ebay:
We Without Wings
Master of Martial Hearts
Spirited Away (Blu-ray)
Blood C: The Last Dark (Blu-ray)
Over the past month or so I ordered:
Oh My Goddess! Omnibus 1
Michiko & Hatchin: Complete Series (Region A Blu-ray)
The Plan with OMG! is to collect the omnibi up to volume 20 so that I can then have all the volumes in unflipped tankabon form and can dispose of the flipped comic...
Meanwhile, the powers that be at work did a review of my position and reclassified it from a Finance post to an IT post, complete with a higher pay bracket.
Plus, I've taken up a managerial post and now find myself on the opposite side of the the interview desk looking for a replacement for my...
Moving from Bakemonogatari to Nisemonogatari, I found I had to make a few concessions to aid my viewing pleasure. Chief of those concessions was not treating it as a horror title, but as a comedy-drama which happened to have one or two horror interludes. Secondly, said horror...
I consider Cyber City one of only two anime titles that had their musical scores Westernized for the better: Street Fighter 2 is the other one.
As for Cyber City, while I love the profanity-laden English dialogue - delivered in exaggerated Noo Yawk accents - I feel the Japanese track delivers...
Despite owning the admittedly excellent HK version of 3.33, I still find myself following up on the trainwreck that is Funimation's handling of the North American release. It should be a case study of what a PR department should not do.
Anyway, this forum topic was brought to my attention. The...
Andrew, if you can score the Neon Genesis Evangelion box set ahead of the North American release, then I shall worship the ground upon which you tread.
Otherwise, Monster or Nichijou would not go amiss.
