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.

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.

POKÉMON: THE FIRST MOVIE

The adventure explodes into action with the debut of Mewtwo, a bio-engineered Pokémon created from the DNA of Mew, one of the rarest Pokémon of all. After escaping from the lab where it was created, Mewtwo is determined to prove its own superiority. It lures a number of talented Trainers into a Pokémon battle like never before—and of course, Ash and his friends are happy to accept the challenge!

Ash’s excitement turns to fear and anger when Mewtwo reveals its plan for domination, creating powerful clones of our heroes’ Pokémon so it can even the “imbalance” between Pokémon and their Trainers. Despite Ash’s protests, Mewtwo refuses to believe that Pokémon and people can be friends. But faced with the determination and loyalty of a young Trainer, Mewtwo just might have to reconsider…especially when pitted against the power of the mysterious Mew!

POKÉMON THE MOVIE 2000

Just one person can make a difference…

In the Orange Islands far south of Kanto, a Trainer named Lawrence is on a sinister quest: catching the Legendary Pokémon Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres in an attempt to awaken Lugia, guardian of the sea! When Ash and friends arrive, the islanders ask him to gather three elemental orbs from different islands. As the weather across the world goes out of control, it becomes clear that the capture of the Legendary trio has thrown the environment out of balance! With Lugia’s help, can Ash find the orbs, restore the balance, and be the “chosen one” that everyone turns to?

POKÉMON 3: THE MOVIE

A crystal catastrophe is unleashed upon Greenfield, and Ash, Pikachu, and friends must figure out how to undo the damage to the once-beautiful town. But the unthinkable happens when Ash’s mother is kidnapped by the powerful Entei, a Pokémon thought to have existed only in legend. Now Ash must go to her rescue, uncertain of what he’ll uncover when he unlocks the real secret power behind the unbelievable turn of events: a young girl whose dream world is being turned into a nightmarish reality by the mysterious and unstoppable Unown!

Tatsumi

Andrew Osmond on the real “adult” manga
