Podcast #2

Sunday 22nd April 2012

Manga UK PodcastThe 2nd episode of the Manga UK podcast is now ready for download, hosted by Anime Chronicle’s Jeremy Graves, and featuring Manga Entertainment’s Jerome Mazandarani and Schoolgirl Milky Crisis author Jonathan Clements. From Dragon Ball Z to Blue Exorcist, Cabin in the Woods to Battleship, your questions are answered in Ask Manga UK and more!

Episode two, recorded 20th April 2012.

You may occasionally hear the sound of a London bus braking, or girls outside the studio screaming because it started raining, even the sound of fire engines going by, but it won't affect your enjoyment of the programme.

00:00 – 00:06:46. An impromptu discussion (Jeremy sneaked the mic on when the others weren't looking) on observations of London, how many times Hayao Miyazaki thinks you should visit the cinema every year, and selling titles in high street retailers.

00:06:46 – 00:43:03. Introductions, talk on new and forthcoming releases, discussion on Dragon Ball Z and Blue Exorcist being released on DVD in the UK (including detailed information on the decision behind the latter being a subtitle only release). Also (spoiler-free) talk on the movie Cabin in the Woods and an interesting fact on the market for Blu-Ray worldwide.

00:43:03 - 1:07:08. The community portion of the program known as “Ask Manga UK” where we take a variety questions submitted via Facebook & Twitter and answer them for you. This time topics include the possibility of more subtitle only titles, re-releases of titles previously owned by other licensors, the Anime Boom and more.
Remember that all questions submitted for “Ask Manga UK” are kept and could be used at a later date! Enjoy the show.

was £24.99
Kai and Aki dream of building a giant fighting robot based on a super-popular anime, but that's going to be impossible if they don't get more members into their school's Robot Research Club. They'll take anyone they can talk - or force - into joining them, including an eccentric robotics champion with a secret identity and a l33t video-game designer who's spent one too many late nights online. Finally, their goal looks like it's within reach.
But when a sentient AI program tells Kai about mysterious documents hidden on the internet, things start to get strange for everyone. As the club members track down the secret messages, they realize that the information might be far bigger - and more dangerous - than they expected.
Contains episodes 1-11
Spoken Languages: English, Japanese, English subtitles.

FEATURED RELEASE

Robotics Notes

Andrew Osmond tries to build his own robot…
Robotics;Notes could be called You Can Build Your Own Giant Robot! It’s about geeks engaged in a preposterous project; building the mecha they’ve seen in anime for real. The show’s aimed at viewers who might think they really could. After all, they’d probably heard of otaku who have built oversized robots for real.

RECENT FEATURED POSTS

Patema Inverted

Jonathan Clements on the movie that turns anime on its head
Boy-meets-girl has never been so strange as in this feature, in which the leads must literally cling to each other or fall away to an uncertain fate. Patema Inverted winningly plays with matters of spatial awareness, perspective and weight, regularly flipping its angles until the viewer literally can no longer remember which way is truly up.

Tales of Vesperia Cosplay: Estelle & Rita

Paul Jacques finds a princess and a... erm... scholar
Cosplaying away at Birmingham's Comic Con, Meg Atwill dresses up as Estellise Sidos Heurrasein (or Estelle for short), accompanied by Aimee Tacchi as the whip-wielding scholar Rita Mordio, both from Tales of Vesperia.

Aesthetica of a Rogue Hero

Andrew Osmond calls it like he sees it…
Actually, Aesthetica should be called The New Boobfest where Girls Fight Monsters and Lose Panties, From The People Who Brought You Master of Martial Hearts, Queen’s Blade and the Ikki Tousen Franchise. That tells us where we are!

Nura Rise of the Yokai Music: LM.C

Tom Smith on the rise of the UK clan
LM.C are amongst a very elite type of Japanese musician. The clan they belong to is so exclusive that its numbers barely reach into the double digits. And its members are also a diverse bunch, including a guitar legend named Tomoyasu Hotei, a boiler-suited new-wave trio called POLYSICS, to a dark, heavy noise making machine dubbed Dir en grey. There’s even pop goddess Hikaru Utada in there too to balance things out.

The Ninja Museum

Stephen Turnbull risks nine deaths in the eye of the ninja storm... or does he?
There is more to the ninja myth than meets the eye. By 1638 all wars had ceased under the police state of the Tokugawa family, yet within twenty years armchair generals were busily writing manuals of military theory, including speculations about sneak attacks, night-fighting and backstabbing.

Jimmy Murakami 1933-2014

Andrew Osmond remembers the man who did it all
By way of an obituary, we re-run Andrew Osmond's interview with the late Jimmy Murakami, originally published in March 2012.

Mardock Scramble: The Third Exhaust

The grand finale of the SF eggstravaganza
It is a real testament to how far things have progressed in the U.K. that this trilogy has been released uncut; in the 1990s the BBFC would never have allowed it. In that sense, the ten years it has taken Ubukata to get his books on-screen may, despite the frustrations caused him personally, have ended up benefiting U.K. audiences.

Cosplay Winners

Paul Jacques' pictures from the best of London's Comicon...
It's taken a while to shift through the paperwork and read all your indecipherable handwriting, but we've finally managed to sift through the London Comicon cosplay pictures and pick out our winners from a fantastic bunch. And with no further ado...
