Re: News [NO POLITICS]

Leviathan-sized video rental stores are being rescued by turning them into nonprofits. Looks like this one won't have any trouble reaching its Kickstarter goal.

Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2016 to now

Jubei-chan, episode 8: So this hard slapstick show just pulled some deeply moving, extremely serious human drama in an episode where the protagonists are menaced by literal Mickey Mouse ninjas. Goddamn I love anime sometimes.

Re: Commentary: Episode 07

Well, it took longer than expected but it's finally here . Hope the DOS nerdiness won't scare away too many people. The FGC page style makes the page longer than I'd like, but we'll have to live with it. This is a thing of beauty, exactly the sort of addition that makes me feel like the Old Comment...

Thank you so much for fixing this embarrassing mess! The asterisk is meant to mark a footnote, pointing to another asterisk that was in my original comment. So you should put the other asterisk back as well so the connection won't disappear. ****** Edit: some final comments: 080: ADV's old home vide...

Which raises a good question: Unless I'm not realizing something important, it looks like the quote in the FGC apparently sprang up from nowhere. Dr. Nick, might you have some other source for it?

You're right, ath. Looks like I went all cross-eyed about what the home video status quo is because this such a complex, silly thing, and I'm so very rusty. So let's see if I understand the progression of these name changes correctly: Yebisu (TV original) -> Yebichu (TV altered) -> Yebisu (back to t...

Okay, it's been years since I've been even tangentially involved with this stuff, so my apologies for being rusty. It might be because of my rustiness, but I'm a little confused/concerned about this bit by ath: 014 : Oh, and they forgot to fix the Yebichu/Yebisu branding issue in the Video releases,...

Re: News of Anime in Japan

This is licensing news, but Jesus tapdancing Christ. I'm a person who actively seeks out bad anime, and this shitshow still left me aghast. And the cover art is downright devious, making it look like a Trigger show. There are going to be blind buyers who are going to get burned by this.

Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2016 to now

Night Raid 1931: It's a good anime if you're like me and suffering from Zipang withdrawal symptoms, but it's also unbalanced in a way that's going to be offputting for a lot of people. That's because its first half is quite a slog and makes the show seem dumber than it actually is. The presence of ...

Re: Controversial Anime Opinions

Why are these companies licensing/dubbing anime that's recent, instead of stuff I've heard of and want to see? Because retro anime is niche business, and the largest profits are obviously in the newer stuff. The best you can do is support the current retro releases, because that way we might get mo...

Re: Last Movie You Watched

Swiss Army Man. You know, parts of this film are eerily similar to Yuasa's Mind Game, just with more Harry-Potter-as-multitool action.

Aura: Koga Maryuin's Last War: Or as Carl Macek would have re-titled it, I Was a Teenage Sepiroth .

Re: Superhero Films & TV

Shankar's The Robot sequel delayed to January 2018. The special effects are giving the Kollywood production a hard time, which is not really surprising considering this is supposed to be a bigger and crazier sequel to a film that was already billed as "the biggest spectacle ever" (and tha...

Heh - I've got DVDs of 21 titles from that list (three of which I know have been relicensed but I bought before that). I've got 55 originals and 9 license rescued titles from that list. And the number of rescues is only that low because I haven't yet sunk my teeth into Discotek's crazy hipster cata...

Re: Illegal torrent trackers tumbling down (tumbling down)

Legality aside sites like these provided pretty much the only means of people outside of Japan being able to watch these properties. This. There are impossibly huge swathes of anime history that one simply cannot access legally, especially if you're a western consumer. Consider, for example, this l...
