The Real Ghosbusters- Series Box, Preview
By Marc | November 24th, 2008

Leaving for the holiday tomorrow and doing papers now, so no time to go thru the set in any real depth.

Some caps from the menu, the opening, the first episode, one of the episode introductions, and the pilot video in the gallery.

This set has some REAL heft to it.  One of the heavier DVD boxes I can remember.  Box is really nice, has some texture to it.

Visually, it’s probably the best the show has ever looked.  Will it win any awards for visuals, not at all.  But definately the best we can expect the show to ever look.  (Without having checked stuff in depth, I’d give the video quality a solid B, or even higher if you take into account its age).

Audio is just great.  There’s depth to the audio that I never remember existing before.

I’ll try and do an in depth review right when I get back on Saturday/Sunday.

But this is a great set and worth the money, especially if you have memories of the show from when you were a kid.

All caps are lossless PNGs taken in VLC, more will be done for the review. (Caps are sized 640×480 so as to display properly on computer monitors, as encoded the disks are 720×480, but having the caps be 640×480 emulates how they will appear on your television screen).

Naruto Shippuden in the USA News!- Updated
By Marc | November 16th, 2008

Viz is gonna start airring Shippuden almost day and date with the Japanese airrings and try and catch up with earlier episodes as fast as they can.

Frankly it seems a bit stupid to do it that way since it’s a plot based show and the early Shippuden haven’t gotten an American release yet (and who knows what this says about the potential for the show on TV).

Update-  Tv Tokyo will be putting new Naruto on Crunchyroll subbed an HOUR after it airs on Japanese TV.

Hunter x Hunter- Volume 1, Early Look/Review
By Marc | November 16th, 2008

Old by the standard of most modern anime fans and companies, Hunter x Hunter is getting a release from the only company with a Shonen Jump stamp to use as they please.

Far easier to write than my review last week (what shonen adventure show ISN’T easy to lay down and watch?), let’s see if this dog can hunt. Continue reading

New Mysterious Cities of Gold Series
By Marc | November 11th, 2008

Confirmed thru multiple places, at a recent convention in France a new Mysterious Cities of Gold series was announced.

No idea as of yet if it will be a coproduction with Japan like the original, but apparently the designs will be very similiar, and the original series director is involved in some fashion. 3 seasons of 26 episodes each.

Original French Source {I’ve double checked this and confirmed with multiple people whom I trust that this is in fact real}
