    Finally got round to Promare last night. it's been sitting around for months. Worth the wait though can understand would hit harder on the big screen. Before that Domestic Girlfriend, which I would have avoided if Dan's review didn't cite similarities to Scum's Wish and definitely how it's...

    Macross is released, what should come first?

    That explains it then! Meanwhile Marcus no doubt making covert puppy-eyes at Ivanova. One thing that confused me no end about B5 is how it could have guest stars like Michael York then go the other end with that terrible actress who plays the Martian rebel in series 4. She's more wooden than I...

    Macross is released, what should come first?

    But what did you sacrifice? And why does the bucket-god boojie sound so familiar? It's doing my head in remembering but dammit all I refuse to google it. That would be cheating.

    Macross is released, what should come first?

    Let's see if the gods approve of your requests and deliver. No sacrificing to the gods to expedite their delivery, mind.

    Macross is released, what should come first?

    I look forward to reading it and similar to the Gundam question, relieving some of my (most would argue of all things) vast ignorance.

    Macross is released, what should come first?

    Similar issue to my Gundam question, it seems. I recall watching Macross Plus years ago but I could be hallucinating it as I cannot remember a thing about it, so I'll go with a general statement of one that is: engaging and accessible. Assuming you want to suck your audience in and leave a...

    Gundam Anime - where to start!?

    Don't worry I forget everything so any more thoughts, keep them coming. Nothing wrong with a deep dive, always good to be able to immerse oneself into something. Looks like we picked BtB up in the same sale, though realised I'd also started After the Rain. So better finish that, too, even if...

    Gundam Anime - where to start!?

    Thank you kindly, help it does - I saw the timelines on the Wikipedia entry but of course that almost complicates things... if I watch things out of order will it turn into some mad jumble? (My brain struggles at the best of times.) So good to know dipping in and out is entirely practicable...

    Gundam Anime - where to start!?

    'lo all, I recently ordered the two Gundam Origin blu-rays in the sale as been meaning to finally dip my proverbial into Gundam. But, there's just so much of it, and so considering what's available (buy, stream, etc.) or not it's hard to know where is the best to start? Anything best avoided...

    Promare blu-ray giveaway!

    At the moment the only offer. Looking close to being a one horse (animated of course) race.

    Promare blu-ray giveaway!

    For reasons less interesting than watching paint dry, I have two Blu-Ray copies of Promare. So why not give one away? Yes, this is your opportunity to win a still shrink-wrapped copy of Promare! And let's face it, this last year has been pretty crappy so what is better than free stuff...

    I've got DVDs of GITs SAC 1st / 2nd Gig and Moribito, if anyone wants them, after finally doing the blu-ray upgrade.

    Recently Watched Anime

    Have to say, having picked up the blu-ray of GitS: SAC (both gigs), it's a pleasure to watch them after many years. It's aged beautifully. Re-watching Made in Abyss and Girls' Last Tour, too, reinforced the initial opinion that both are excellent, especially Girls' Last Tour is a real gem...

    BFI Intro to anime on youtube

    In case anyone is interested, as part of their anime season (though quite how that's working with lockdown is anyone's guess), the BFI streamed and have available on youtube here an intro to anime, including Helen McCarthy and Michiko Yamakawa, an arcivist at Production IG. Only listened to a...

    Sight & Sound - summer edition is an anime edition

    In case anyone is interested - though cannot say I've seen the content - but looks like the BFI's summer edition of Sight & Sound is focussing on anime, especially 50 key films. Looks like it'll stray into TV, too in other anime strands. Some more details here as it's what's within. I'm...
