    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.

    Hello!

    No shame in hentai if that's your thing, but glad to have you on the forums - hopefully the place will get a little busier now I've finished refurbing it!

    Next-Gen consoles

    I picked up the PS5 from Shopto, but I registered my interest months ago - all I had to do was confirm it. For me it had to be disc version, as I collect films on 4K disc and this will allow me to remove a box from under the TV. I still have a lot of PS4 games to play like Final Fantasy...

    Historic UK/Japan trade deal

    https://www.uk-anime.net/newsitem/UK_and_Japan_agree_historic_Free_Trade_Agreement Given how hard it is to get a work visa in Japan, this is quite incredible. Were I not currently raising a very young daughter I'd be seriously tempted to start looking at opportunities in Japan!

    Let's talk about....random things

    Christ, they should just do away with twitter. I rarely engage on it, just tweet out updates. I'm sure people who don't like me have scraped every social media outlet looking for stuff to be outraged over, thank God I'm old and out of touch :p Hopefully you'll get through your work issues, if...

    Last Game you played

    Bioshock 2 is okay, not as good as 1 but it is an excuse to revisit Rapture, so I liked that about it. I've got 3 copies of teh game (the remaster for PS4 is still in the shrink-wrap) but I've always wanted the game on handheld for some reason, so bit at the first title - I'll pick up the other...

    Let's talk about....random things

    Well firstly, good luck :) I deal with a trans couple semi-regularly and they're both lovely people (albeit very shy). They run a model shop near me and gave me some excellent advice on airbrushing that got us talking. We had a trans writer on UKA around 20 years ago, so while I can't say I'm...
