The Remixed OST of the Evangelion 1.0 Rebuild Movie

I've been really excited about the Rebuild of Evangelion movies ever since I learned about them but, I hadn't really thought much about the soundtracks that were going to be used. Soundtracks are really the last thing that comes to mind TBH since it's usually the story you get to read about first or visual screenshots. So I was a bit...


A Classic Anime Based on a French Novel, Fifteen Boys Stranded at Sea

Just came across this classic movie while I was going through my old collection of VHS tapes full of recorded Anime. They were all recorded during the days when only 56Kbps connections were affordable and you had to pay by the minute to surf online. You can imagine the bills that one could knock up. These days it's much more convenient of...


5 Centimeters per Second Novel Coming November?

In case you don't know what the game's about, you'll be playing as Kyon and you'll be going through the same story as the show. You'll be...


Code Geass The Complete Guide Arrives, Content Impressions

Just received my copy of the recently published "Official Code Geass The Complete" guide book from my penpal. Had to ask him to get it for me because my usual import sites didn't have it at the time (at least not the ones that didn't charge a huge postage and handling fee!). If you want to order this now though, you can get it from Yesasia. The...

It's only been nearly 2 months since Shinkai's last masterpiece "5 Centimeters per Second" was released on DVD but, his next piece of work is already due out this month! The only thing is, it's not a movie. It's a CM for the Daily Shinano Newspaper which will be broadcasted in Shinkai's home the Nagano Prefecture this month. There are...
