    Favourite film of 2019

    I'm glad they redesigned Sonic - looking forward to seeing Tails and Knuckles in the sequel. I'm honestly amazed it took them so long to go live-action with it.

    Favourite film of 2019

    I think Sonic the Hedgehog was the last big cinema draw of 2020. You know, back when we had cinemas. What a note to end on! I did enjoy Jim Carrey, even if he was just playing his usual schtick in a new outfit, it was fun to watch.

    What's your other hobbies?

    Lately I've been painting custom Transformer (or third party) robot parts and upgrading the figures. Here's an Earthrise Arcee with new backpack and painted ankles/feet: I also painted her back around the midriff and butt, since they were white and unpainted. Very annoying given that Elita 1...

    Last Game you played

    I picked up Miles Morales for PS5, which was enjoyable, and now I'm making my way through the earlier Spider-Man remastered game. I think Morales was a tighter gaming experience, and I love New York in winter, but there's certainly a lot more meat to the original.

    Anyone watch Korean or Japanese TV shows?

    I've been watching Kingdom on Netflix, since the show is pretty good and I work with a Korean firm, so it helps my language skills. I'll try the two you've mentioned as well, thanks for that. Netflix has a good selection of Asian cinema, I'm halfway through Hot Gimmick now.

    New site design

    So, after a lot of faffing about, I finally redesigned the site. We're 25 years old next year, so I wanted something a bit more contemporary (it was fun going through the Wayback machine to see how it's changed over the years too!) If anybody has feedback, comments, hate mail... just post it...

    Sony negotiating to buy Crunchyroll for $1 billion

    A lot of MVM's major franchises (including Fate and the Monogatari series) are Sony-owned properties, so I can absolutely see the room for competition dwindling if those return to the Sony mothership. Looking into my crystal ball, I'd say MVM possibly has a finite lifespan anyway, it'll all...

    Sony negotiating to buy Crunchyroll for $1 billion

    https://www.uk-anime.net/newsitem/Sony_in_final_talks_to_acquire_Crunchyroll So it looks like Sony will be the one to rule them all. Dunno how to feel about this one really - on the one hand I'll likely only need one anime-service subscription (and Funimation is installed on my HDTV, unlike CR...

    I'm hoping the apparent success of the film/series gets the manga published in the West. I'm pretty sure Viz will be eying it up.

    The library runneth over, so if anybody wants any of the books below, all I'm looking for is the cost of postage. Elephantmen is signed.
