    Quick question for anybody with the Discotek DVD release of Gun Frontier:

    I've noticed on my copy, which was brand new out of the box, that disc one has a few visual issues. This is noticeable during episodes 4 and 5.

    The most noticeable glitch is during episode 5 at about 16 minutes in. Suddenly I get a chequerboard pattern on the screen for about a second. There's also a notable instance of de-rezzing early in episode 4, where the visuals become blocky for a moment.

    I'm thinking I may just have a bad disc. But if anyone's noticed similar, I'd be REALLY grateful if you could let me know.

    Well wait until it fully dies then you have nothing to lose? Search youtube for something like "clean lens modal name" chances are someone has made a video on how to do it and it's usually quite simple. In my experience BD players are a lot simpler than games consoles..

    I ordered some manga from book depositary thru Amazon marketplace last Thursday and it still says preparing for dispatch is this common or should I complain?

    For book depositary that's fairly normal, they take 2-5 working days to deliver but can take 2-4 working days to dispatch on top of that.

    Suppose I can't complain considering how cheap they are compared with Amazon.

    What are some of the best pure horror anime? Not gore but horror, disturbing anime.

    It's a very subtle kind of "Horror", but I had a really good time with Garden of Sinners.

    Possibly Boogiepop Phantom or maybe even Paranoia Agent if you're into more atmospheric type stuff.

    Not sure whether it would qualify as "horror", but Serial Experiments Lain is pretty disturbing (and confusing!) in its own way.

    MVM recently re-released it as a Blu-ray+DVD Collector's Edition set, and it's one of my personal all-time favourites.

    Is there any release of Beyond the Boundary apart from Sentai's CE that has the OVA?

    The Australian one does IIRC. You may want to double check that with someone else though.
