Blu-ray Blues and Duplication Derpery, in the Manga UK podcast

Manga UK PodcastThe Manga UK podcast is back for its sixth episode, in which Jerome Mazandarani attempts to persuade Andrew Hewson to dress up as an evil dwarf, and Jeremy Graves professes his love for the obscure new series Princess Jellyfist. It's hard to imagine that 90 minutes of product information and technical discussion also works its way into this, but it does.

00:00:00 the pre-show intro. Reasons why Jonathan Clements can be periodically heard shouting at the internet.

00:05:20 the actual intro, August releases, Manga UK news: Panty & Stocking update, The Fullmetal Alchemist BD movie double-pack is delayed until 17th December, but not the DVDs, which are out on schedule; the secrets of the Madoka Magica packaging. Introducing the Mysterious Craig.

00:13:20 Why oh why is Blue Exorcist sub-only? Manga UK and the perilous world of Blu-ray releases; why do websites give erroneous certificate data ahead of releases?

00:37:22-1:29:02 Ask Manga UK. Your questions answered, in some rambling fashion -- includes an exclusive re-enactment of a day at the office. and details of why Cosplay Thursdays are unlikely to catch on at Manga Towers. And a cliffhanger. Yes, a cliffhanger.

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.

Sword Art Online Music: LiSa

Tom Smith on Sword Art Online's LiSa
Salarymen to the left of me, shoppers to the right. And here I am, stuck in the middle with otaku. Well, more accurately I’m frolicking with them, in Hibiya Open-Air Concert Hall, a concrete amphitheatre that’s dwarfed by the towering skyscrapers of Tokyo’s business district to the west, and high-end retail haven Ginza to the east. Between the two is the venue, hidden in the peaceful Hibiya Park. Peaceful, that is, until 3,000 anime fans descend en masse, clutching chunky glow batons, wearing identical shirts and all waiting for the latest lady-singer that tickles the tastes of otaku to hit the stage; LiSA.

Kenichi: The Mightiest Disciple

The first rule of Kenichi is: big eyes and kick ass.
In the real world, mastering a martial art takes years of devotion. All require a harsh physical regimen that pushes the body to the limit. Of course, we’re dealing with the world of anime, so we have a sneaking suspicion that Kenichi Shirahama might be able to go from shy, quiet bookworm to martial arts prodigy in a matter of weeks. All it takes to send him on the path to becoming Chuck Norris’ worst nightmare is falling for the new girl in class after he sees her single-handedly demolishing a group of thugs.
