Re: What are you Watching?

Evangelion is mostly notable for being one of the purer forms of self expression of anime broadcast on TV. I feel like fans often get caught up in all the extraneous stuff about the show (basically, the plot lol) when it was the emotional honesty (Anno was basically spilling his guts out for the vie...

Re: What are you Watching?

Catching up on some DIscotek releases lately. Plus, finally going to sit down and watch Kill la Kill via the Aniplex blu-ray set! (the only Aniplex I've ever bought) Project A-Ko--For those who never thought they'd see the day where we'd see Project A-Ko this pristine and clear, I have to think seei...

Re: Discotek Otacon announcements including URUSEI YATSURA TV!

It's too bad Discotek can't include any extras though. The BBC dub would have made a hilarious extra--

Re: Discotek Otacon announcements including URUSEI YATSURA TV!

Fist of the North Star they were able to do SDHD and put that in a bluray set, I'm sure they can do the same with this, if not later down the road after releasing the sets individually in chunks. For sure. But I would assume that because this is true HD materials they are working with (not SDBD or ...

Re: Discotek Otacon announcements including URUSEI YATSURA TV!

I'd imagine the price is gonna be well over 100 bucks to own. It's one of those I can get it on a future Right Stuf sale for about half off or so. It's on my radar for sure. They said it would be over 4 sets, so i guess it would be around 48-49 episodes a set? I’m tempted to compare it to their oth...

Re: Discotek Otacon announcements including URUSEI YATSURA TV!

Original Urusei Yatsura on blu-ray is definitely huge news. Particularly the first 106 episodes if you're an Oshii completionist. I've only watched about 25 episodes of the original series (various random volumes of the Animeigo discs), so having an unbroken run of the entire series would be huge.

Re: Macross II, Macross Plus, Macross 7, Macross Frontier, & Macross Delta to get released in America!

Yeah, I would say the most annoying thing about the post Macross 7s are those CG mechas...I mean, I'm not against the use of CG when applied carefully, but none of those 2000s Macrosses really seemed to do it right. Now the modern Gundams, they do it right.

Macross 7 has always been one of those interesting curiosities for me. It’s a big commitment though.

Re: Macross II, Macross Plus, Macross Frontier, & Macross Delta to get released in America!

Unfortunately, I've heard talk that there's still rights issues with DYRL in Japan, so that might not be resolved for a while.

But Frontier and Delta finally coming here is nice. I've also mentioned in here a few times that I'm one of maybe 5 fans of Macross II. :lol:

Re: Flying Phantom Ship BD from Discotek

Skaro Hunting Society fansubbed this a few years ago with your help, right? It's funny how Discotek has licensed so many that Skaro fansubbed in the past.
