    Eeeper's Choice Show 11 - The Beaten, Bloodied but Unbowed Show

    This week we review Air Gear the manga, They Were Eleven and Birdy The Mighty OVA. Also we talk incessantly throughout the news section. Oh well. You're not listening to this show for the intellectual quota. Oni talks about furries (I think), I talk about Bandai Visual USA (I'm sure) and we both talk about Miller and Baileys(I'm certain).

    Better show notes to follow. It's 2:45am where I am and I'm frigging tired. Finally I have to spologise for the audio quality. I'm still installing all of my old audio programs into the new laptop so bear with us.

    Eeeper's Choice Show 10 - Our Evil Spreads Show!

    This week Eeeper reviews, for the retro choice corner, Project A-Ko while Oni reviews Ninja Scroll! Yes I've got a co-host now in the form of Oni. Who is he? Well, you'll just have to listen and find out. He's been waiting to join the show for a while but only recently could he do so. The tone of the show is going downhill from here on in.

    News
    The Melancholy Of Haruhi Suzumiya is set for a May release in both standard and vol 1+artbox versions courtesy of Bandai Entertainment. Yes, the hardest working Internet launched anime in history is coming Here's hoping this doesn't turn out to be another Azumanga Daioh...[Link] Also on 25th January just under 1/4 of a million people viewed the special ending of Haruhi from volume 7 of the Japanese DVD when it was posted up on YouTube. A quarter of a million people!?! Have these people no real lives!? Oh, wait. Sorry, wrong person to ask that question...
    [Link] Mushishi is being courted for a release of it's l;ive action version. God, I must have missed this when it first came out. So, on the podcast no offense was meant to Mushishi fans at all. Betcha one of parties interested in the film was ADV and another was Harmony Gold. I mean without any new licences, they only have Robotech to fall back on for profit. Right? Right!? RIGHT!?! Oh here's that link to Jo Odagiri's ANN page. [Link] Funimation announced they have the rights to Mushishi the anime, Ragnarok The Animation and Suzuka. OK, let's just hope they finally fix their subtitle problems this year....YEAH, RIGHT!!!Christ, I can't escape from Mushishi! And it's been given one of the worst re-titles for this year. BugMaster! (As Weevil Underwood(English Version)): Oh no, you've broken my Great Moth! We hate that voice actors take on Underwood. Also Funimation expand their programming block on their Funimation Channel. Now we can watch more DragonBall then ever before! [Link] Bandai Visual USA have said they will release Gunbuster 2[Link] Manga Entertainment have announced that they will release the Ghost In The Shell:SAC movie Solid State Society in July. Apparently they weren't brave enough to release it on Blu-Ray [Link]I've tried to find the article on Anime News Service about Blu-Ray outselling HD-DVD in Japan but as of the time of my writing this, I've had no luck...Any one who read it can email me the link at the usual address. YouTube and Google reps met with members of the The Japanese Society of Rights of Authors and Composers (JASRAC) and The National Association of Commercial Broadcasters in Japan. With literally hundreds of thousands of copyrighted clips of anime available on YouTube, JASRAC is starting to get nervous. What!?! They're only getting nervous now?!? The GITS DVD we were talking about can be found here but is now out of print. You might be able to find it on Yahoo.co.jp Auctions but it's up to you. And finally, as I promised here is the Wiki Entry on Pentacost

    Air Gear
    Huh? Where's the review? Sorry the section with Oni ran long so it's going to be next week before you can listen to Eeeper review this.

    Project A-Ko



    This amazing movie from 1986 remains one of Eeeper's favourite anime of all time and set a benchmark for parodies of anime and manga to come. Captain Harlock, Maison Ikkoku and Fist of the North Star are some

    Eeeper's Choice Show 09 - The-Giant-Robo-Strike!-Show

    This week's show has NO news as I haven't had time to check the news. Yeah I heard that Haruhi Suzumiya got licensed. The whole of the anime related internet has heard. If you want to know my opinion on Haruhi check out show 03. Normal news service will be resumed next show.

    Infinite Ryvius

    This manga created by original creators Hajime Yatate(insider joke: look up on google who actually is Hajime Yatate) and Yousuke Kuroda(original scriptwriter) with art from Shinsuke Kurihashi. This is published in two volumes by the now-defunct Comics-One and it's successor
    DRMaster. Told from the perspective of Aoi Housen, and her roommates Kozue Izumi and Reiko Ichikawa and while it's not following the plot exactly it's excellent. Full of tension and all that good stuff, it's a nice addition on your shelf next
    to the DVD of the original show. WARNING: UNLESS YOU WANT THE SERIES SPOLIED FOR YOU, WATCH THE ANIME FIRST

    Legal Drug

    CLAMP always do great stories even if sometimes the actual plot makes no sense. That is true for Legal Drug, a three volume manga originally in Japan by Kadokawa Shoten and in the US/UK by TokyoPop. This follows the adventures of two psychics Kazahaya and Reiko who work for Kakei at the GreenDrug Store pharmacy. As well as doing regular jobs, the two boys have to do "special" deliveries for Kakei that utilise their mental skills. Only complaint I have is that CLAMP haven't finished this story, as they are currently working on other projects.

    Giant Robo: The Day The Earth Stood Still

    I've been promising myself I'd get round to this title sooner or later. This is the best title that I've seen in the last year and that's all there is to it. Listen to my review for more info and why I think this.

    CPM will re-release four titles with reduced prices on January 30: Black Jack DVD Collection 1 ($29.95), Ichi The Killer: Episode Zero ($14.95), Time Bokan ($9.95), and Hammerboy ($9.95).

    Satoshi Kon's next film Paprika is screening at 10 a.m. at Laemmle's Grande 4-Plex in downtown Los Angeles through Sunday. This screening makes the film eligible to be nominated for an Oscar.I've checked out the ANN page on Paprika. It's as good a synopsis as there is on the film so far.(P.S.: I know I was late with this news clip but I was too F***in' tired to edit it out!)

    ADV Films has officially announced their license to SGT Frog, which includes merchandise and gaming rights as well as other areas (everything but the manga). Separately, Diamond Distributors has relayed that ADV has announced that Volume 1, which is listed in the December Previews for a February release, has been rescheduled for later in 2007.


    A new trailer for Makoto Shinkai's upcoming Byousoku 5 Centimeter movie trilogy is now online. The films will be released next spring in Japan.


    The official site for Gonzo's Master of Epic anime series is now online. The show premieres next January in Japan.

    With grateful thanks to the ANN

    Densha Otoko

    Densha Otoko or Train Man is supposedly based on a true story but with all things Internet related I'll let you decide. I found it to be a nice read while commuting so if you like your heroes nerdy but not Harem Heroic then this could be the title for you. It doesn't have a UK based publisher as far as I know so you'll have order it State-Side for now.
    DNAngel

    DNAngel was the title I got back into Anime and Manga after an almost ten year absense. And I know what some fans and listeners will say 'He chose That Title to come back to!?!' but it's the perfect title to show some who's been away from the Crusade for a while. Not terribly bad, not great just a little bit non-engaging. The manga is longer but has way more Shoujo elements to it than the TV series.
    Kimagure Orange Road

    KOR is fast becoming a favourite of mine but it's purely an acquired taste. If you can't stand 80's anime this may not be your bag but then if you never watch 80's anime then your not being a true Otaku are you? If you don't like it then you don't like it. Animeigo did a fantastic job translating it but they recently lost the license by that I mean that is that the Japanese label that controls it just recently brought out their own boxset in Region 2(Japan) land with better image and sound quality. In other words We're not letting you produce any more of this DVD while we bring out our outrageously priced version that the fans in Japan must buy rather than pick up your nice, cheap
    version.....As I said before Animeigo did a fantastic job. Here's the web page
    for their liner notes on the TV series. Animeigo regularly bleed for their customers and so many of us ignore the fact that back in the day they were the ADV and Funimation of their day.

    Eeeper's Choice Show 07 - The Dragon-Fighting Yakuza's From The Edo Era Show

    Basilisk is Samurai Action the way I like it. Nice Scenery, great characters and a boat-load of Ninja-action and hemoglobin. Just when Jubei thought he could retire as the baddest samurai, Gennosuke turns up looking for the toughest motherf*&^er around award.Links:

    The review of PS2 game Yakuza replaces an anime review that I started to review nut realised was too thin given the size of the series. I played Yakuza for about two or three days and thought it might be worth reviewing. Let me know if I should continue to review games or not.

    Wikipedia entry on the actual Yakuza
    Neat overview on the Kinji Fukasaku classic Yakuza Papers
    Sega's offical page on Yakuza




    Sohryuden was another anime that i watched on Channel 4 back in the day. I remember it being longer but time has refreshed my memory. It's a fairly decent anime but if I could be blunt it's a poor man's X. Only watch it if you've already seen X or you're bored of X. Anybody got any better alternatives let me know.

    thriller/comedy(!?!) manga Remote from TokyoPop and on the anime side I finally review a series in it's entirety in the

    form

    of Stellvia of the Universe in the firing line. If this keeps up I'll actually sound like a professional soon!....NOT THAT

    KIND OF PROFESSIONAL!....In the news Bandai threatens to tie up fansubbers with piano wire, The Anime Network continues to

    delude itself that it's the Cartoon Network, Edward Alric whores himself out to MySpace and the UK contniues to rub my

    nose in the ground with FilmFour's Miyazaki season. Oh, Lord! Why do you hate me so!Anywho if you need to contact me
