i remember reading an article about it awhile back and i unfortunately cant find anything about it now, any of the clips online dont have any english audio present so i cant tell and i was curious if maybe you'd heard of it. its gonna bother me now so im gonna keep trying to find info on it, if i find any info ill let you know.

also congrats on 1000 subs btw.

fair enough, ya changes like that are usually pretty gradual, for example gen fukunaga only just stepped down from position at funnimation and they were acquired by Sony 2 years ago or more.

also are you aware of an anime called Future War 198X ? from what i can tell its the only anime ever dubbed by Australia, information is a bit scant but from what i recall it was dubbed and released on vhs in the early to mid 80's in Australia, the vhs tapes are quite rare today as afar as i can tell.

hey mate any thoughts on madman being bought by aniplex? hope their prices arent increased to drastically, aniplex usa has stupidly high prices.

80's trash was the best trash.

also today i was looking through my collection and realized that serial experiments lain ( released by pioneer) was released as both region 1 and 4 compatible, did ya'll get Lain in Australia though MadMan or such? or was pioneer distributing in both north america and AUS/NZ ?

also how goes life? cool to see your back to uploading.

also im curious of anything in your collection what holds the most sentimental value to you? , mine is my ex- library copy of gundam f91 which i got when all gundam was OP here in the states and found it cheap, it helps that its a derpy gundam series which is at times rather funny & unintentionally so, me and my best friend watched it together laughing our asses off when i first got it and though i recently picked up the blu-ray release i wont be parting with dvd i have to many fond memories attached to it.

TTGL is my favorite anime and Miu is my number one waifu

Bahahaha. That novel. My bad.
Tauriiel Sep 23, 2018 8:39 PM
DUDE, same. Anime with a setting in some medieval or feudal era tend to be some of the best. They feel less restricted by modern day laws and over all clutter. They fall back on story usually, less technology to carry their plot. I can appreciate the journey aspect when it's on foot or by horse back, as those tend to cover the same amount of ground just not as fast, thus allowing for more character growth. (In theory, anyway... lol) But, aside from all the technical babble, period shows are just more fun. They're a nice break from the usual current-day high school piece, for sure.

I remember Dai Shogun being one, that while off its actual rocker, was REALLY entertaining. I wanted more from the characters, and hated that it was a short show. But if anything it's a treat! There might've been a time when fan service fazed me, but that time has long since passed. It's just become apart of the show anymore, I'm more surprised when I'm not being flashed than when I am, so. Lol. Plus, who doesn't love a flustered MC, or one like Issei from DxD? Comedy gold. xD

Speaking of fan service, I just finished a show that REALLY pushed those boundaries. It's called How to Not Summon a Demon Lord, and WOW. That show, and Yuuna and the Haunted Hot Springs must've drawn their line between Ecchi and Hentai in the sand because that shit got washed away REAL quick. Still hilarious, though. On some fronts. The latter show reminds me of Golden Boy, sans the MC chanting STUDY STUDY STUDY!

I used to consider myself pretty much a mecha buff, but some shows stretch it for me. I'm attracted to nice action sequences, solid plot and a great art style, so some mecha shows I can't stomach thanks to the computer graphics they use and the generic story line. And then there are other shows that manage to blend the style well, but meh. Heroic Age was a gem, though. Most mecha rarely have such a compelling story to go with the big rock'em sock'em robots. Although, I don't recall the mecha in HA being robots so much as they were sentient beings... but I digress!

See, that's my dilemma. I definitely find longer shows more appealing because they tend to have better pacing and enough character growth to satisfy me... But I'm so friggin' LAZY! Sacrificing quality of a story and characters is harsh, but gotta do what ya gotta do. Even if that means tossing the longer series onto the PTW list and just knowing that they're out there and will, eventually - maybe, be seen in the future. And yet, that feels more or less a bleak possibility because I spend so much time trying to decide what to watch, despite having things half way finished as it is, that I fail to watch anything at all. Womp.

My ideal length for a show is definitely 26 episodes per season, with - maybe - a max of around 3-5 seasons, erring a little on the former because 70ish episodes seems more than fair if filler isn't on that Bleach level. (Although, I do love me some Bleach. Even if I am sore as fck over Tite not utilizing Yoruichi's potential.) But for time saving purposes, these 13 ep finishes are quite nice... as long as they're entertaining enough. I've seen a few recently that have had SO MUCH going for them, but for whatever reason the creator fails to really exploit the hook they've got. And I sit here like, why this. That's my torture. A good story poorly executed. :( ...Or a great story excellently carried out, but no word on second seasons or continuation's, lol.

Y'know, friends always question why I still collect physical copies of things. Be they anime, movies, games, TV series; books. Digital just isn't as satisfying, especially when technology hates you (because it definitely has a beef with me for whatever reason!). And, I really like looking at my shelves and feeling a sense of accomplishment when it comes to tracking down something that's been out of print, or something I've had my eye on for a long time but had to save to get it. Not to mention the aesthetic of how COOL things look on display. I like having the options, too. I can watch things online and keep the same show on my shelf, just to have it when I want to watch it away from a computer or internet connection. But, I think you summed it up best. A tangible representation of something we love and enjoy. Also, art boxes are awesome.

Back to Yamato really quick, though. I couldn't recommend that enough. The classic and the remake. I think I enjoyed the remake a little more, but only because it's compressed into 26 easily binged episodes without completely wrecking the story or demeaning any of the characters nor their relationships. Whenever you get around to checking either one out, lemme know what you thought! I was just telling a friend something similar to what you said about being unable to find a show that really scratches that itch of what you're looking for, at least enough to really get into and love. Yamato 2199 was the last show I found myself 110% absorbed within, and since I haven't found anything that's come remotely close to measuring up to its grandeur. I can't even put a finger on what exactly I'm looking for, and it's so annoying. But at least we have that option of rewatching older shows. :) Going back through Outlaw Star or Wolf's Rain, or even Cowboy Bebop - when enough time passes it always feels like the first time watching them all over again, and I find myself overwhelmed with some really nice nostalgia.

Of course, that means my PTW grows and my completed list stagnates. Lol. Full circle!

As I clicked on your page to respond, I saw that you added Dai Shogun to your list - oh man, that series. LOL. What an odd one. I went into it expecting the usual fan-service, but ho boy. What a wild ride it turned out to be.

Also. I don't know a lot of people who have seen Heroic Age, so the fact that you have it on your list sorta rocks. What an underrated show, I swear. Hurts the soul when something great goes under the radar. Hurts even more when it fails to get a companion spin off or second season as a result. :|

I try to watch a little bit of everything! I think my analytics configured my main genres as action-adventure / sci-fi / space opera / romance / comedy... which fortunately is a super wide spectrum of stuff to choose from, lol. Speaking of, don't get me talking about space operas, ok? I won't shut up. Yamato 2199 is probably THE anime for me. So good.

It appears we're fellow 90's kids, so we got some sweet exposure to anime via ADV/Geneon/Bandai, etc. Which means we got the quality 26 episode per season shows, :D I dunno how much you've seen of the oldies, but I miss those. Well, part of me does... The lazy part, not so much. I kind of like being able to complete something in 13 episodes or less, lol. But I also miss the pacing a full out season can provide. Those drawbacks are a bi- Anyway.

Ohyeah, I relate, lol. In one of your previous videos showing off your anime room, every time I saw something sealed I was like 'Yep, same'. The collector in me can't help it. Especially box sets!! I bought Toradora's premium a few years back and it's still sealed, haha. The internet just makes it too easy to watch whatever these days. Crunchyroll has been adding older shows, so I rarely feel the need to pull something from my shelf (I own mostly older series, d'em single volume days tho!) unless I'm gaming and unable to connect to the internet. (That's probably another reason why my PTW is only getting bigger, I rewatch too many things!)

Tauriiel Sep 10, 2018 11:58 PM
I've seen a fair bit, for sure! But it would seem, so have you. Anime is too easy to binge when there's time for it. I can easily spend cold or rainy days streaming shows. The hardest part is picking out something. (Because who in their right mind ever continues series they've left off on, or have listed as 'currently watching' haha, not meeee.)

Most of what I have seen is pretty old, though. I'm a slacker with the newer releases 95% of the time. Pretty sure I still have sealed blu ray/dvd's lying around, waiting to be watched... but I'm just over here, adding to my PTW all willy nilly.

ya they did license golden boy... and i really need to get back to it.

ya ive been having issue with getting ahold of OP titles for awhile, it gets hard when it was titles that arent well remembered 15 years later... which is why discotek re-licensing things is a fantastic help.

i recently finished gathering all the single sets of evangelion and finished watching them, absoulty adored the series the final episodes were fantastic and i really need to find end of evangelion soon, unfortunately it would be at least $60 at least.

any cool pick ups recently?
KurtvonZeon Jul 18, 2018 11:55 PM
not much man, ive been hitting the gym and running alot lately, thinking about enlisting in the army. as for collecting im looking forward to some re-releases of older OVA's by discotek , and funimation is about to release zillion an 80's sci-fi series which im rather interested in, funimation almost never releases older stuff tending to focus on titles released more recently, i get a similar impression about Madman though to be fair they have released some older titles just not as many as newer titles... please correct me if thats inaccurate.

ya ive been using letterboxd for awhile, i was originally looking for a movie website equivalent to MAL but never found one, letterboxd is cool but sadly they dont have forums with is a bit of a let down, would total still recommend though .

i'll look into Collectorz it sounds pretty cool.
KurtvonZeon Jul 6, 2018 7:12 PM
hi mate, its been awhile, i dont really use my imdb account through i do have one but im on letterboxd have you heard of letterboxd liked your vid on anime history in Australia.

which collection logging app do you use?

recently watching Nadia the secret of blue water, aside form that im planing on checking out banana fish and hanebado this season, anything your planing on checking out?
KurtvonZeon Apr 26, 2018 11:21 PM
cool ya i figured but though you would know better then i would, trying to think of what to pick up for next month ( trying to limit myself abit to like 70 us dollars or so... car needs brakes, sadly a love of anime wont make my car stop) that being said ill probably be picking up rose of Versailles art box's, recently finished that and loved it, at the moment i am hard pressed to think of a better anime form the 1970's. Do you have anything your thinking about getting of late?

Gallipoli is pretty solid, sort of feels like a american new wave ( era of america movies from the late 60's to 70's also called the New Hollywood era) that happened to be made in Australia, i liked it quite a bit... also staring a young Mel Gibson... you cant go wrong with Max.
