Cheap UK Studio Ghibli Goodness!

leave a comment »

Many online sites such as Play and Amazon, as well as a whole bunch of high street stores (HMV and Music Zone) have lowered the price of the Studio Ghibli titles which were released on the Optimum label.

Classic benchmark anime such as Nausicaa Of The Valley Of The Wind, Grave of the Fireflies, Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, My Neighbour Tortoro and Howl’s Moving Castle have all been slashed in price to £8.99 each!

A steal if there ever was one. And for the uniniated, Studio Ghibli films rock, plain and simple.

Look for reviews of Studio Ghibli films hitting the journal soon.

But wait… what are you still doing here? Get your butts out the door and buy em up before the wise up and jam the price back up to £16.99!

Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children Directors Cut dated for Japan

leave a comment »

Described as a directors cut of sorts, Gamespot is reporting that Square Enix will be releasing Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children Complete, next year in Japan.

Available on both DVD and Sony’s newly touted DVD successor format Blu-Ray, it seems as if there will be new scenes spliced into the movie and extra special features not available in the original release.

Hmmm, sounds good in theory, so long as the extra goodness can justify the price of double dipping.

The video game adaptations continue…

leave a comment »

Anime News Network is reporting that Madhouse is involved in the production of a 12-episode TV series based on the hyper kinetic gothic action game series, Devil May Cry.

The series will reportedly air next spring and will contain demons, guns, swords and much coolness (hopefully). So hopefully while all us fans can dig in, it will also be a decent enough show to bring those in who havent played the games.

They even have a Japanese website, the address being:

No news yet on a U.S/U.K release, but considering the license, I guess it’s only a matter of time.

Oh and BTW this journal is NOT dead… far from it as you will soon see ^_^
