Well, looks like the guys at The Right Stuf have decided to do a massive liquidation of all their remaining Geneon products. Since Geneon went under their stuff is getting harder and harder to find, so order now while you still can!
For some of you this is old news. For others, you're probably like me and are reacting with with a giant "what the...?" I believe this qualifies as one of those Holy, Fucking, and Shit! moments.
Geneon has stopped US distribution of anime dvds. Just up and stopped. There was no warning at AX, that I was aware of. They had titles lined up, they had questions answered, they had...had...
'scuse me, I need to sit down. I'll be on the forums if anyone wants to come by.
I'm hoping this is just some sort of reshuffling and not as bad as it looks. I want my Rozen Maiden DVDs and my Shanna box set.
Well, here they are, the final reviews from "Where No Anime Goes Unpunished." We have for you, Rozen Maiden Season 1, Koihime OVA 1 and 2, Maburaho, DearS, Bokusatsu Tenshi Dokuro-chan, and Akane (DIE YOU F'D UP ANIME, DIE!)Maniax.
Yes, I'm working on my anger issues, and my therapist says I'm coming along fine. Sure he did it at gun point, but he did say it.
I'll be closing "Where No Anime Goes Unpunished" formally, after New Years. As with the others I moved from there, I won't create any threads for them, due to their ages and such, but if you, our loyal readers wish to, again, we'll be more than happy to jump in.
Damn, we're just rocking on with the updates today!
Depending on how this goes, I'll either have the move complete by tomorrow...or after the beginning of next year. Still in any event, I've uploaded four of the reviews for your viewing pleasure: Scrapped Princess, Tenjho Tenge, Transformers: Armada, and Transformers: Energon.
Bob and Souichiro show up at Todo High School one day determined to kick everyone's ass and prove they are the strongest. Problem is they picked a school that has turned out top Z level fighter martial artists since the Meiji era...did they even have High Schools back then? And they show up with a power level of maybe 50...bad move on their part.
In this typical shounen bit of teasing fanboy service; jerk, biggot, and nice guy (yes you read that right) Takeya Ikuhara comes across a girl by the road one day after school, clothed only in blanket. He saves her from being run over by a truck, only to find she's one of the almost legendary DearS, who crash landed on this world nearly a year before. She kisses his hands, and then his lips, promissing to serve him forever. There are several problems with this, as he soon discovers.
Let it never be said, dear readers, we don't go all out! I am sicker than a terrier dog after sucking down a ton of chocolate, and yet...here is a review for Zero no Tsukaima. It's a horribly compressed anime, that couldn't quite make itself bad regardless of what was done...and what wasn't done to it, heh.
If someone could make the comments thread for me, I'll give you...well, you probably don't want what I'd have to give you at this point, but I'd be really appreciative, heh. CLOSED
Zero no Tsukaima, or Zero's Familiar, is all about an inept magician in training and the familiar she summoned. Turns out the familiar she wound up summoned was actually a human being from 'our world.' Too bad on this world, Saito is just a commoner, which earns Zero a great deal of ridicule, and himself a lot of Zero's ire for being a human, and worse, a normal human at that...or is he?
Today we have what is an oddity of anime story telling in that despite the best efforts of the production staff to completely screw it up, the story and characters shine through proving how powerful the source material must have been. So without further ado, may I present to you: Fate: Stay/Night.
Folks, meet Emiya Shirou. They call him the carrot top of Japan...well, not really, but there you have it; an orange haired Japanese boy enrolled in High School. A family friend has been coming over to take care of him since his adopted father passed away, going well into a few years now. Honestly, if this cliche hasn't been overdone, I don't know what is. However, one night, while staying late at school, he comes upon two men fighting to the death with some seriously hardcore edged weapons. One of them notes his presence, and after the duel, in which both broke off the fight for another time, the one who is called Lancer, tracks him down and attempts to kill him. This leads into a chain of events where he finds out he is one of the chosen Magi to fight in a war for the Holy Grail...an artifact which can grant any desire. The Magi, who are the masters, are given leave to summon one servant to aid them...these servants typically being Eiri, the valorously slain; and quite by accident, Shirou manages to summon the best of them, the Sabre...which was surprising to all, especially Sabre, who greets him with the question, "I ask you, are you my master?"
