Hellsing Ultimate Vols IX & X
This started dragging as much of it is ultra-violence for the sake of it. Volumes VII and X were probably my favourites as they actually had other things to say. Although Alucard gets defeated by a thought experiment :confused:

Tsukiga ga kirei eps 1-3
A quite sweet romance SOL so far and a protagonist actually confesses after only 3 episodes unlike some that leave things dangling till the end of the series or even after they've died!

Band of Brothers eps 7-8

I know it's not always the most popular option amongst fans, but I'd like to see a lot more older long form tv series released this way. I rarely buy physical releases now, mainly because I grudge the storage space, but I'd be much more up for owning the entirity of things like City Hunter or Urusei Yatsura if they came in a couple of nice compact cases.
I don't mind this either to be honest. I'm happy just have a really old show like Hokuto No Ken which is rather niche these days on Blu Ray, SD or not. Because I like a lot of old and long series it would be ideal to have them in full HD but I can live without it and save a bit of space. I'd also like City Hunter and Urusei Yatsura: in either SD or full HD. I've not seen any City Hunter apart from a movie but I have seen every single UY episode plus OVAs and movies, took me a good few years to get through :)

Also....back to viewing:-
Forgot to mention I finished Stranger Things Season 2. Honestly I don't get why it's been getting so much hate compared to Season 1. I've listened to the arguments but don't really agree with most of what was said, thoroughly enjoyed it. Wasn't perfect but neither was the first season, both were a lot of fun with some real heartfelt character moments and some great universe building. Honestly even if I had thought this season had paled in comparison it would still be a hell of a lot better than many other shows airing currently.

Hokuto No Ken (Rewatch) Episodes 11 and 12 - Back to form with a mixture of manga stuff and non-manga stuff expanding on the canon Jackal storyline. Not a bad group of episodes at all.

The Punisher Episodes 1 and 2 I've enjoyed each one of Netflix's Marvel shows some more than others but I was really looking forward to this and so far it hasn't let me down. The Punisher is my one of my all-time favourite marvel characters ever since the Garth Ennis days and I think they've done a pretty good job with the more adult version of the MAX imprint comics in TV form.

Went to see Justice League at the pictures.
Interestingly I went with the sole objective of slating it informatively. Somewhat surprisingly I ended up enjoying it. They did cut a hour out of it and will probably attempt to make their money up by releasing about four different versions on blu ray (as they did with Watchmen). Enjoyed it though, and they set it up for a proper Green Lantern film. If they just follow First Flight they would make a decent film, probably the best DC one so far. Didn't like The Flash's character but I get they were trying very hard to distance the characters from the TV counterparts. Still didn't like the fact he was an idiot though.
Paprika (rewatch, first time in HD)

This film is truly one of my favourite things in this world. Even just that opening title sequence alone is just so...

I honestly can't even describe it.

+ some One Punch Man extras. Yay!


And you thought there is never a Grav online
Gonna Be the Twin-Tail!! (Japanese audio) - Episodes 5-8

This show entertains me.

Note: For the best Twin-Tail!! experience, watch the Blu-ray version as the TV Broadcast had a fair amount of animation issues. This also includes the Crunchyroll stream as they initially simulcasted the series for European territories before they extended the regions with Funimation's added zones.

Inuyashiki-Episode 6

Will admit the power shown towards the end of this episode with the whole shooting invisible bullets through the internet to be far fetched even by this world's standards. Still, bloody fantastic episode, no pun intended. This show is really gripping.

Girls' Last Tour-Episode 7

This show is too damn pure for its own good!

Blend S-Episode 7


The Ancient Magus' Bride-Episode 7

Talk about going from 0 to 100 in a few seconds. That really caught me off guard.

4 down, 6 to go, then I'll be caught up with everything I've missed with being busy! Love Live, BBB&B, Umaru S2, UQ Holder, Black Clover and Food Wars S3 all await me tomorrow.
A couple more from the Manga Force Collection.

Negima!? Spring & Summer OVAs (dub)
Blimey that's some harem the prof. has there, I counted 30+ names in the credits! Both were fan service episodes, a beach episode and an onsen episode and as I haven't seen the original series meant nothing to me. Only took a couple of minutes to find out why it was a 15 though.


Submarine 707 Revolution (dub)
A man wants to clean the ocean by sinking a load of ships! The end hinted at more, so I guess they never finished adapting the manga. Some tense moments in the one on one battle at the end after the rest of the fleet was sunk, but overall nothing great.

Great film. I remember going to the cinema to see it and some people laughed at the flying/floating parts :rolleyes:
