My ex-wife was a big sports fan. She was from the Pittsburgh area, and we went to quite a few Pittsburgh Pirates baseball games and a couple Steelers football games as well. We had met in college at Penn State University, and after college we got season tickets to Penn State Football for 23 years, 6 or 7 games a year, and I just totally burned out on that. When we divorced I gave her my seat reservation and I never watched another sporting event, even on TV. So that's why I have zero interest in watching any sports anime - it would make me feel physically ill, lol.

You would be hard-pressed to find someone less interested in sports than me, but I enjoy quite a few sports anime. Rather than being a depiction of sport, they're more like martial arts shows where people are hitting balls instead of faces (though some balls get hit in martial arts too). You have the training arcs, the tournament arcs, the OTT special moves, and melodrama as thick as treacle. The best examples can find endless ways to add dramatic variations to the same basic actions.

i wonder if discotek would be the right company to try and pester for a blu-ray collection of the Liar Game series/movies, i assume either the Yasutaka Nakata or Fatboy Slim music used throughout the series will probably cause licensing problems for them

Kadokawa has bought Anime News Network's media business.

Hmm. ANN may never have been the place to go for hard-hitting investigative journalism, but they have been known to comment on poor working conditions in the industry and other things that could ruffle a publisher's feathers. This move has conflict of interests written all over it.

It was originally meant to be released this month, but has been delayed until next year and doesn't have a new release date yet. I normally import Australian releases via EzyDVD, but it's not available for pre-order yet.
Does anyone know where can I order Madman Entertainment's Sailor Moon Complete Series blu-ray? It does not show up on Amazon AU and EzyDVD only ships to Australia and New Zealand.

Was that from toysandfilms on ebay? If so, may I ask how long it took them to dispatch your order?
That's the one. I ordered on a Saturday, it shipped on the Monday and arrived the next day. It's the only item I've bought from them though, so I don't know if they're always that quick.

Thanks. I ordered 2 items from them on the 25th of November, and they still have not shipped yet, but I'm guessing that's because of the Royal mail strikes.
