Review: “Durarara!! X2 Shou Blu-ray (UK Edition)”: A Sterling Example of Dollars

by Grant Whiteon July 19, 2016
It’s been two years since I last stopped by Ikebukuro. I commented then that the release came ahead of a planned continuation of the story, and that time has arrived. Split into three arcs, Durarara!! X2 aims to complete the adaptation of the light novel series. That’s pretty significant considering there is no shortage of anime […]

Review: “The Girl Who Leapt Through Time” Blu-ray Is a Hop, Skip, and a Jump to a Charming Film

by Neo Yion July 15, 2016
Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: Makoto Konno is your everyday Japanese schoolgirl. She lives with two parents and a little sister, is a total klutz, and barely makes it to class on time. Today is a particularly rough day for Makoto: she fails a pop quiz, her cooking class ends with her […]

Review: “Only Yesterday” Blu-ray Is A Riveting Trip Down Memory Lane

by Neo Yion July 6, 2016
Only Yesterday’s US release is nothing short of a miracle. For years, it suffered as the only Studio Ghibli film to never make it stateside. Even during the brief time period in the late 90’s/early 21st century when Disney shoved Ghibli dubs out like candy, this one remained curiously absent. The only way anyone could legally […]
Anime Limited Taking Pre-orders For Limited Edition “Fullmetal Alchemist” Blu-ray Set

UK “Fullmetal Alchemist” Ultimate Edition Early Bird Discount Ends Tuesday

by Grant Whiteon June 30, 2016
The law of equivalent exchange states that to gain something you must lose something of equal value. The law of Anime Limited exchange works a bit differently. There are just a few days left to take advantage of the company’s early bird discount on their HD Blu-ray Ultimate Edition boxset of the original Fullmetal Alchemist […]

Review: “Zootopia” on Blu-Ray – Happily Hopping Home

by Weathermanon June 13, 2016
Zootopia is officially available for home release, which is really weird since it could still be found in theaters as of this disc’s street date. I doubt most of you really need me to tell you to buy it. Zootopia is certainly the most talked about animated movie of the year and maybe the most […]

Still Got The Touch! “Transformers: The Movie” Comes To Blu-ray

by Peter Paltridgeon June 9, 2016
Few movies are as beloved by children of the 80’s as Transformers: The Movie. The original 1986 movie, that is, not counting anything afterward. Until now, however, it’s gotten only token treatment in the home video market. Someone must finally be in charge who grew up with this movie, because it’s getting a digitally remastered […]
Rick and Morty Season 2

Review: “Rick and Morty” Season Two Blu-ray Is Squanching Fantastic!

by Neo Yion June 6, 2016
Rick and Morty manages to pull in more content in twenty-one episodes than most other shows can manage in a multi-season lifespan. Its comical deconstruction of the sci-fi genre is delightfully tongue-in-cheek and cleverly demented. In its first season, the kid-with-a-mentor story trope took  firm bunt to the head, analyzing the whimsical, fun-filled adventures as […]
