For me it’s a slightly more collectors than an amaray and sentai is calling it a CE. I wouldn’t rebuy Clannad for this but as I’ve never owned it though I like it I will.

Not the most amazing Discotek Day ever but still I'm interested in at least 3 of the 4 releases here.

Fujiko's Lie is an instant buy, watched it over Xmas and loved it.

Nils Holgersson is a nice surprise, it's similar to alot of the World Masterpiece Theatre shows.

Lastly for me Anti-Magic looked like a decent show and it was surprising it got passed over at the time. While I prefer Discotek to release as much classic stuff as possible, it is nice to see them going back and picking up shows like this. Certainly a handful of titles I would like to see get released. Guess I can say the same for Angel's 3Piece, though that one doesn't interest me personally.

Woah what, there's an anime of Nils Holgersson?? Mind blown. I grew up reading those books, as did my parents and their parents. It was super popular in Sweden.

It's also the first anime produced by studio Pierrot, just before they worked on the first half of Urusei Yatsura.

Wow... and directed by Mamoru Oshii!
It's not half as dry as Oshii's usual ouevre through.

I watched it on tv partly as a child before knowing it was Anime. Completed a full watch some 10 years ago. Is a rock solid child anime with a moral, much like the WMTs.

To the point that when iv watched it I thought. "Pierrot sure set downhill, when they started which such a solid entry."
