A New 5 Centimetres Per Second Site, Novel English Translation

I'm sure regular visitors amongst you will know how much of a fan I am of Makoto Shinkai's 5 Centimetres Per Second by now. After looking through how much information I've gathered about the movie, I thought this blog wasn't giving it enough space to organise so I've decided to create a sub-site for it to have all the content accessible in...


Evangelion 2.22 Blu-Ray Collector's Edition Review

Both the DVD and Blu-ray release of Evangelion 2.22 is finally out and since both copies come with the collector's film strip this time, I decided to go for the higher quality Blu-ray version. The packaging is fairly much the same as the 1.01 limited edition - A sturdy cardboard box except I think it's orange for the Blu-ray versions....

Uniqlo to Launch Evangelion Movie T-shirts in May

There's no Uniqlo stores here in Scotland as far as I'm aware but for those of you Eva fans that do have access to one, you might want to watch out for these Eva Rebuild movie themed t-shirts due out in the second half of May.

Free Evangelion 2.22 Apps for iPhone from Yahoo Japan

Gainax is really pushing the Evangelion 2.22 marketing at full force with burgers and a fully themed convenience store. It might make sense considering how the simultaneous Blu-ray and DVD limited edition releases are out next month in Japan. Then again, the very first movie's DVD LE release still sold out last time without this much...

Valkyria Chronicles, From PS3 Game to Anime

After watching Valkyria Chronicles, it makes me want to play the first game on the PS3 even more. The PSP sequel was a really enjoyable game. That's also why I got interested in this show partly because of the sequel's excellent presentation and wondered if the VC universe continues on with the story. Good to see that it indeed does and...
