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.
