    Netflix Cowboy Bebop Woes

    I haven't actually seen Wings of Desire, but will certainly pick that up. With regards Columbo, have the box set and ripped it all to the Plex drive so I can watch it at work. McGoohan arguably has some of the very best episodes, but Jack Cassidy was an equally formidable rogue with a dastardly...

    Netflix Cowboy Bebop Woes

    Oh I wouldn't worry, good as it was I'm not overly attached to it either. I think the really fanatical fans are in a minority, just magnified by social media. I don't know if they (Hollywood) do these things due to lack of original ideas, the current popularity of anime/nostalgia or just...

    Netflix Cowboy Bebop Woes

    https://www.uk-anime.net/newsitem/Netflix_is_on_a_rocky_road_for_Cowboy_Bebop_launch.html So the usual fan-baiting has started from the off. I quite liked the reveals and didn't mind the changes, but all this acrimony has left a nasty taste. Anyone else have an opinion on this one?

    Next-Gen consoles

    I may have just pre-ordered the Steam Deck. Is that a console, technically? 0.o

    BFI Japan Film Season - take 2

    I'd like to see The Magnificent Nine by Yoshihiro Nakamura. Only ever seen it on a plane, and would love to see it on the big screen. A touch over 2 hours, but great performances and a wonderful slice of Japanese history too.

    I am BRAND NEW to anime!!

    Hi, welcome to the forum (and wider world of anime!) First thought is how lucky you are, so many great shows to experience for the first time! I don't think you need to worry about dubs or subs, it's persoal preference, and sometimes the first version you're exposed to makes it iconic, like...

    High Guardian Spice Trailer

    https://www.uk-anime.net/newsitem/Crunchyroll's_High_Guardian_Spice_Trailer_revealed_at_Virtual_Expo.html So, who's down for watching this? It does look to be skewed towards a younger audience.

    Shinya Tsukamoto interview

    Fantastic links - I could watch Kermode for days, even if the film looks a bit too gruesome for my own delicate tastes :p

    Show us your toys thread

    Couple of robo-goodies arrived this week, both from Magic Square. Really impressed with the work the company is doing with their sculpting and engineering, but a bump in material quality wouldn't hurt them any.

    Nagatoro landed and thankfully it isn’t as cringed as I expected. Some stories work best as manga, especially comedies, but I was pleasantly surprised.

    Macross is released, what should come first?

    For the sake of legality, I'm gonna say I sacrificed chocolate... It's a riff on Babylon 5, when Marcus and Ivonova are trying to communicate with the first ones who think they're insignificant, and he comes up with the idea of putting a bucket on his head and claiming to be the great God...

    Oh, then I'd go Frontier. You have two potential throughlines (which I'm writing an article about on AI) Jenius family Macross - Macross 7 - Macross Delta That takes you through 3 generations of Jenius - Max & Millia, Mylene and Mirage Jenius. Nome family/Roy Fokker Macross Zero - Macross -...
