    I must admit I’ve never heard of Violet Evergarden. Just watched the trailer. I agree that it looks very pretty. Will keep an eye out for it. Cheers!

    I’m well, Grendel. How are you feeling? Nice finding those sales! I wish US Amazon would put a few anime discs I’ve been eyeing on sale, like Mirai and The Girl Who Leapt Through Time.... I love the cover of that art book! Such bold use of colors. Fantastic!

    I love Serial Experiments Lain! I only have it on DVD. How is the quality of the Blu-ray, Grendel? I already have Wolf Children, Summer Wars, and The Boy and the Beast on Blu-ray from that Amazon sale I mentioned. I just need to pick up The Girl Who Leaped Through Time. Oh, and find the time to actually watch them. I wasn’t disappointed by Mary and the Witch’s Flower at all. I thought it was pretty great, but I would say that the story arc could have been better served as a series. With all that world building, I wanted to spend more time there.

    My local theater was showing Mirai last Saturday morning, so I went to see that. I absolutely adored it, of course! It was the English dub, but it was well done. With the Blu-rays I picked up on sale at Amazon recently, I’m now ready to do a deep dive into all of Hosoda’s films.... Netflix made a new, original Ultraman series that just released this week. Unlike the live-action 1960s Japanese TV series, this one is CG animated, and I would say it has some anime influence for sure. It’s getting positive reviews from IGN and a friend of mine who has watched it. I haven’t seen it yet, but I’m hoping to watch it soon. Have any of you watched it?
  5. Bad Times at the El Royale would be nice.

    Looking good, @Grendel! I picked up the same Mondo Alice. I have the original Record of Lodoss War on DVD somewhere. Good stuff. I should probably watch the sequels someday. I’m envious of your Star Blazers LE! That looks niiiice. Going back a few posts, I also got that Mondo Ghost in the Shell steelbook, even though it was a double-dip. That price was just too good to pass up, and it is pretty gorgeous. I must admit I’m not familiar with either Jormungand or JoJo’s Adventures. I’d be interested in your thoughts after you watch them. Cheers!
  7. So I take it nobody on the MP team lives in Canada, huh?
  8. I don’t read any manga these days. The last manga I read was Lone Wolf and Cub about 25-30 years ago. I did pre-order the US Blu-ray releases of Mirai and A Silent Voice. The latter I’ve already seen and would highly recommend. I ordered the former just based on reputation. Remember my interest in the Gatchman: Complete Collection? It sold out everywhere before I got around to ordering it. Apparently, a fancy Collector’s Edition release is coming out in a few months for $99.95 MSRP. Here’s hoping the price of that drops by a third.... Re: Ghibli Award, that sounds like a great idea, but not feasible for me if it’s steelbook only, unfortunately. The Zavvi Studio Ghibli steelbooks are all Region B-locked, and I haven’t picked up any of them. And I haven’t seen much in the way of Region A steelbooks recently.
  9. Couldn’t disagree more with your assessment of The Tale of Princess Kaguya. I think it’s a masterpiece and one of Studio Ghibli’s best films. It’s top five for me. Just a difference of opinion. Mononoke is probably my favorite overall.
  10. Best Buy Canada exclusively has the same steelbook design except it comes with 4k UHD and Blu-ray, FYI. I wish it was available in the USA.
  11. That reminds me: The Blue Kite would make an excellent choice for a future WCL/MLIFE release....
