    UK Anime Distributor Anime Limited Discussion Thread

    It's part of the festival yeah. They have an online side of things and the theatrical side of it in cinema. Patlabor 2 I'm curious about honestly, I mentioned it in the discord too, but I'm hoping we do get go-ahead for the Edinburgh leg so I can see the first film before watching the second...

    UK Anime Distributor Anime Limited Discussion Thread

    Yeah, There's a part of me that's definitely seeing that, ie depends on contract agreements between the two charities, etc. I definitely see it as unlikely so will need to raise the Retail Dispute case with the bank at some point, but you never know.

    What Games Are You Playing?

    I've been working on a lot of late but I've got three titles I'm playing currently! Trails of Cold Steel 2 - Working my way through this at a decent pace. Onto Act 2-2 currently and quite engaged with it all. I do find it funny how between Act 1 and 2 they do the same exact scenario as they did...

    UK Anime Distributor Anime Limited Discussion Thread

    I did wonder what would happen next. My heart goes out to all the staff in the Edinburgh Filmhouse, some I've recognised every single year for the last 12 years going in and out. As silly a question as it sounds, I'm assuming the best course of action here is to wait for Andrew, yourself and...

    UK Anime Distributor Anime Limited Discussion Thread

    I'd agree with this. Hi-Evo 1 can be left after the first 20-30 minutes mind you, but Anemone is definitely worth a watch regardly because of what it does differently, and how open it makes things for Eureka. The new film trailer went out a month or so ago now, which shows it as more action...

    Miscellaneous mecha discussion thread

    I did not see this thread come into existence and now i'm wondering where it has been all my life. Not sure if any of you are going to join in this idea of Mecha March, but I'm using it as an opportunity finally to get through a lot of the shows i've been wanting to watch for a long time. Ie...

    Winter Season 2021 - A First Look

    Missed my opportunity to add to the article this time round! But I will say now i've had a chance to watch more this past few days, Horimiya and Back Arrow are definitely ones i would recommend watching out for. But overall it has been one of the best seasons we've had in a while, it's pretty...

    Your viewing journal

    Horimiya 1-3 - I've been heavily invested in checking this one out since I found the manga last year(and still can't purchase physically. YEN PRESSSSSS please give me another release...) But they've done a solid job so far. I think the anime take on this has done it some justice in parts as the...

    What was the first game you owned?

    First Game I owned? Hmm. My parents owned a lot themselves for the Megadrive and Game Gear when I was a kid, but they weren't "Mine" to be precise. However the first game that I owned, or games rather, was Super Mario World and Donkey Kong Country, as I got a SNES for my 5th birthday. The first...

    Simulwatch Planning Thread - Suggest & Discuss

    As we discussed somewhat in the discord, I'm game to watch Moribito in a simulwatch. It's an interesting historical fantasy(which deserved all the books to be releaed here not just 2) but i found it great. So I'd be game for it

    Eureka Seven: Hi-Evolution Anemone Review

    Eureka Seven: Hi-Evolution Anemone is an interesting film. At times superbly done, others, very confusing and jarring to the new viewer. Now then, let’s PLAY FOR- oh wait, we’re not doing that in this film? Phew Continue reading...

    Mindbender marathon: Lain/Kon/Ōtomo simulwatch

    Okay catch-up time Layer 3 This felt like it was a definite continuation to the previous two episodes(i'll explain in a sec), and it's gradual change in Lain is becoming evident. What's interesting is that suddenly, everybody knows her by name, yet this version of Lain seems to be clueless to...

    Mindbender marathon: Lain/Kon/Ōtomo simulwatch

    Mindbender marathon: Lain/Kon/Ōtomo simulwatch

    Ì I did knee-jerk think cyberpunk at the start, but as it went on it disappeared quickly, more...just general sci fi mind bendy. I can see why they may suggest it, but it feels more like this was just showing a weird drug-induced stupor. I still need to see how the rest fairs, but it feels just...

    Mindbender marathon: Lain/Kon/Ōtomo simulwatch

    Layer 2 - Girls Well this brought a darker look to the world of Lain and what it shows. You get that seedy underbelly element from the start of episode 1, but this brings it more to the fore-front and alongside it, more questions than answers. I am now trying to decide whether or not this is...

    Mindbender marathon: Lain/Kon/Ōtomo simulwatch

    Episode 1: Weird So i will say, this is my first descent into Serial Experiments Lain, while my fiancé has seen it before, so she's just keeping quiet as i take it all in. This episode doesn't really drop anything solid to go by on the first episode, but it gives me some ideas of what it may...

    The Q & A Thread (for questions that do not need a thread)

    My usual mention for Fantasy outwith some of my olden time favourites is Guardian of the Spirit(Seirei no Moribito). It's superb, but it's more grounded fantasy than full on. But if you want general recommendations, i would say: Drifters(for a newer one) Ushio & Tora Vampire Hunter D Bloodlust...

    What Games Are You Playing?

    I've been playing a stupid amount of different titles recently, making it hard to actually complete anything... Astral Chain - I finally went back to this one recently, and i don't honestly know why i didn't get the time in before to play it. This is stupidly good fun. Love the visual style of...
