We had to wait over a year for We Bare Bears to grace home video, but Elena of Avalor’s first DVD disc is going to happen nearly instantaneously. The first four episodes that have aired will be offered in a DVD package for the young female holiday market. Elena of Avalor is a spinoff of […]

Shout Rolls Out Packaging, Release Date For “Transformers: The Movie”

by Peter Paltridgeon July 25, 2016
We’ve got a release date for the newly remastered (in 4K!) Transformers The Movie, the 1986 release that most critics consider to be Orson Welles’ finest role. Mark your calendars for September 13, 2016. The AUTOBOTS, led by the heroic OPTIMUS PRIME, prepare to make a daring attempt to retake their planet from the evil […]

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 […]


Histeria Finally Coming To DVD

by Peter Paltridgeon June 30, 2016
They’ll love this in Bulgaria. Until now, the biggest hole in the WB Silver Age library was Histeria, the 52-episode edutainment program that aired between 1998 and 2000 on Kids WB. Previously only available in bootleg form (and still rare at that), Warner Bros. is finally releasing the show in one go next month, with […]
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 […]


The Real Ghostbusters Returning To DVD

by Peter Paltridgeon May 8, 2016
In 2009, Time-Life licensed The Real Ghostbusters from Sony and put out one of the most elaborate DVD sets devoted to a cartoon show ever created. With several documentaries, dozens of commentaries(in VIDEO form!), scripts, series bibles and isolated soundtracks, it was truly a work of art. Now, thanks to the upcoming Ghostbusters movie, Sony […]

“Zootopia” Coming To Blu-ray Sooner Than You Think

by Peter Paltridgeon May 2, 2016
Disney’s Zootopia is still killing it at the box office, with its only real competition at the moment being the studio’s own The Jungle Book. Given the business it’s been doing, when would you expect the home video release to come out? Would you believe as soon as next month? Yes, you’ll be able to […]
