Re: Anyone excited for/about Death Stranding?!?

I'm very intrigued by Death Stranding, but I'll likely wait for a steep price drop before playing it. Had this been prior to Metal Gear Solid 5: Phantom Pain, I would have likely already pre-ordered it. MGS is my all-time favorite game series, but I was so disenchanted by Kojima's work on PP that it...

Re: What are you Watching?

So I finished watching Citrus, the anime. I've been reading what other people thought of it online and I have to say I'm slightly amused that so much ink has been spilled on it, both positive and negative. I do feel that Citrus is a case of an anime simply coming out at the right place in the wrong...

Re: What are you Watching?

Finally watched all 6 parts of Gundam: The Origin. Overall, I enjoyed it. I did feel that there were some aspects/characters they spent too much time on, while others were glossed over. But still worth checking out and adding to the collection. It really made me want to pop in my VHS copies of the o...

Re: Gundam soundtracks on vinyl at Rightstuf

Great cover art, but those are some hefty prices. Wonder if they'll get around to any vinyl releases of the later shows (Gundam 0080, Gundam Wing, etc)?

Re: What are you Watching?

Recently watched Dancouga which was thankfully watchable. Watched it over a few months with a friend which made it easier to get through all 40-odd episodes. But it was not bad! Also watched Goku Midnight Eye on Amazon which was fun. Can't go wrong with Kawajiri. Being a huge Kawajiri fan, I'm asha...

Re: Youtube video "We Have Accepted Mediocrity" snipet focusing on 80s anime

Interesting topic. There's no question that creativity in anime has become stifled over the last decade, if not a bit longer. Certainly, there's been "crap" made long before, and no decade is exempt. (And make no mistake, there's still entertaining anime being produced today.) But from a financial p...

Re: Dragon Ball Z movies coming to theaters this fall!

I ended up going to the Dragon Ball Z: Broly screening earlier tonight. It was very cool seeing a DBZ film on the big screen, despite not being too fond of the later DBZ films. It was the dubbed "remastered" version, meaning they used the Japanese music instead of the American music from the origina...

Re: What are you Watching?

I picked up some anime DVDs fairly cheap last month, which included the Ninja Scroll TV series. So far I'm only on episode 4, but I'm enjoying it. I recall it getting some sour reviews years ago, but I haven't seen anything yet that I disliked. I'm also re-watching Dragon Ball GT. I only viewed the ...

The VHS copy is difficult fi...

Re: G Gundam Ultra Edition pre-orders up!

That's a snazzy looking set and whoever thought up the Tequila Gundam shot glass deserves a raise. I love these collectors edition box sets they're doing but, for the sake of shelf space and money, I can't bring myself to "upgrade" beyond my older Bandai Legends sets.
