    I'll probably buy the 4K singles at some point and put them in my original Movies box. It's not like the box has anything on it other than the series logo and some artwork, so that'll be a good work around as I just couldn't justify the 4K box at the moment...

    I knew it was coming, but still... my poor matching Gundam boxset collection :(

    Deep Sea Review

    Deep Sea is a Chinese animated film that tries its best to go after the Studio Ghibli market and story-wise it comes off as a film trying to be Spirited Away or Howl’s Moving Castle but not completely getting it. Visually though the film is quite unlike anything I’ve ever seen before… Continue...

    Oh man... do I want my collection to better match on the shelf or do I want a less compressed picture... A surprisingly hard choice!

    One Piece on UK TV!

    It's funny to think when this was posted we were interested in the first 30-odd episodes airing on UK TV and now twenty (?!) years later the 1100th episode is going to "air" (in a way) in the UK just a short time after its Japanese broadcast. It's a funny example of how technology has changed as...

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

    Heartbreaking, much like the poster above Dragon Ball has been a big part of my life (admittedly in my case since I was a teenager, but that's still a long time ago...) Given he was only in his late 60s I assumed he'd be around for many years to come, still penning weird and wonderful storylines...

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

    The dubbing of Dragon Ball here in the UK is an odd story, to be fair. We started with the super-censored Z and the early, heavily inaccurate FUNimation dub, then switched to the Ocean dub (which was pretty much the FUNimation script but with the Canadian voice actors returning from the censored...

    I'm also looking forward to both the Bleach and Naruto sets, if nothing else to get some room on my shelves! ... Like a little bit, anyway. Plus I'll be able to put them in my main shelf unit with the Blu-Rays rather than the smaller "these shows are still stuck on DVD" shelf unit that's sort of...

    Um, well, this seems kind of cruel to post after ActionFaust's post above, but... my three Patlabor sets arrived today and look nice.... Wasn't expecting so soon, that'll teach me to not pay attention to my e-mails for a day or two.

    Evangelion 3.0 + 1.01 Review

    Getting a special run on big screens ahead of its physical media release, the finale of the “Evangelion Rebuild” films is quite the experience and sitting in front of a large cinema screen will certainly add to that, but does Hideaki Anno’s third attempt at an ending to Evangelion get it right...

    Another Gundam pre-order for me, though I was momentarily confused when I read I had until Thursday 7th August to get my pre-order in...

    I just ordered Burn the Witch via PayPal and didn't run into any issues, so not sure what the exact problem is but it's not universal (unless they just fixed it in the last hour!)

    Looking forward to G Gundam. I hated it the first time I saw it because even though I knew its reputation and even seen it in cross-over games I still went into it thinking like it was a Gundam show. Many years later I re-watched it with knowledge of what kind of show it was going in and had a...

    UK Anime Distributor Anime Limited Discussion Thread

    I'll definitely get Thousand Year Blood War, the animation on that should pop nicely on blu-ray, but I assume the original series is just an upscale so not 100% sure I'll double dip, especially as @HWR just said there is always the worry they'll get two or three sets in then stop...

    Final Fantasy VII: Remake - Traces of Two Pasts Review

    I imagine at the very least Rebirth's depiction of the Nibelheim incident will feature characters / moments mentioned in the novel, if only through items and off-hand remarks, same goes with flashbacks to Tifa and Cloud as kids, as you said. Plus some of the framing devices actually take place...

    Final Fantasy VII: Remake - Traces of Two Pasts Review

    Traces of Two Pasts does exactly what it says on the tin (or book cover I guess) and gives us a look into the backstory of Tifa and Aerith, plus a bonus story at the end, all written by FFVII scenario writer himself (amongst so many other things!) Kazushige Nojima. Is it really juicy information...

    Yeah if I hadn't caught up when it was "only" 400 or so episodes I wouldn't bother trying the show now...

    Leiji Matsumoto is definitely one of those "his influence in the industry cannot be overstated" kind of people. Absolute legend.

    Samurai 7 - Complete Series Review

    Samurai 7 retells the extremely influential Akira Kurosawa film Seven Samurai but changes the setting from Japan’s past to a weird mix of science fiction, steampunk and Japanese culture to create something entirely different - well, apart from the 'small village hiring seven samurai to protect...
