With various members of the team being out and about the place, Jeremy brings you literally a show of two halves very much themed around the happenings of E3. First he is joined by Lauren and Keith to talk a variety of topics including Lauren's passionate feelings surrounding Kingdom Hearts III and Keith's passionate feelings about the
wealth lack of news relating to the Final Fantasy VII remake.
Then we moved forward 24 hours (from when that first segment was recorded) with Andrew and Kat then joining Jeremy to talk some of their feelings on happenings from E3. As you can probably guess, there's more talk on Kingdom Hearts III as Kat gives her feelings about all news surrounding the long awaited game. Then we touch on some other things that were of interest from Andrew's perspective including Death Stranding.
As if that wasn't enough, there's even time to briefly talk about Andrew attending the A Perfect Circle concert in London that leads to some strange music based tangents.
A fun show as always! We'll be back next week with another podcast, who knows in what format, but either way we'll be back! Enjoy the the show~!

A little while ago we revealed details on what to expect from our upcoming release of the series Rokka -Braves of the Six Flowers- that is coming to Ltd Collector's Ed. Blu-ray and standard DVD on 25th June 2018.
Today we're excited to bring an unboxing of the Ltd Collector's Ed. Blu-ray set! Read on below for the details.
Synopsis: "Legend says when the Demon God awakens from the deepest of darkness, the Goddess of Fate will summon Six Braves and grant them the power to save the world. Adlet, who claims to be the strongest man in the world, is chosen as one of the "Braves of the Six Flowers" and sets out on a battle to prevent the resurrection of the Demon God. However, it turns out that there are Seven Braves who gathered at the promised land…
The Seven Braves realize there must be one enemy among them, and feelings of suspicion spread through the group - with Adlet being suspected first and foremost.
Thus begins an overwhelming fantasy adventure that brings mystery upon mystery in Rokka -Braves of the Six Flowers-!"

We're going to be releasing the entire series (12 episodes) in one, single complete series collection; something that has not occurred in any English speaking territory before. As mentioned at the top of this piece, the series will be available as a Ltd Collector's Ed. Blu-ray set as well as a standard edition DVD.
The release will come packed in a rigid case with a digipak to hold the two Blu-ray discs. Also inside the rigid case will be a 48-page art book that features art of the characters, the fiends, props, storyboards from the opening and ending sequences, and a gallery section.
On the discs themselves, you'll get all 12 episodes of the series in Japanese with English subtitles, and also with English audio. That's right, in case you missed it when we revealed our plans for the release, there is an English dub for the series! This English dub localisation never been released before so our Blu-ray release will be the very first opportunity to experience the entire series dubbed! (You can read more about the English dub further below in this post.)

The story of Mai Mai Miracle takes place in a very specific time, 1955, with some excursions back a millennium into the past. The film’s setting is Hofu, a coastal city in Yamaguchi prefecture at the bottom of Japan’s main island, Honshu. As the script mentions, in previous centuries the area used to be a province called Suo.
It’s notable that the characters in Mai Mai Miracle talk of Japan’s centuries-old past, but hardly ever refer to the country’s recent history – namely, World War II. The sole comment is made early on by Shinko’s grandfather Kotaro: “It’s ten years after the war, but that’s nothing compared to a history of a thousand years.” There are no urban bombsites, and the main characters are kids born after the war, for whom ten years might as well be a hundred.

Anime Supremacy!, a translated Japanese novel published by Vertical, takes on the real-life side of the anime industry, more frantic and quirky than any 2D antics. The author, Mizuki Tsujimura, is not an anime pro, which would seem to reduce the book’s interest greatly. But wait! The last pages have an impressive list of the people Tsujimara interviewed while researching her novel. The roll-call includes Kunihiko Ikuhara, creator of Utena; Genki Kawamura, producer of Your Name, Fireworks and The Boy and the Beast; and Katsuji Morishita, a Prodution I.G producer who’s handled everything from Dead Leaves to xxxHOLIC.
Notably, the author interviewed several high-placed women, including Rie Matsumoto, director of Blood Blockade Battlefront; Keiko Matsushita, producer of A Letter to Momo and Miss Hokusai; and Hitomi Hasegawa, whose animation director credits include HAL and several Attack on Titan episodes. Women may still be under-represented in anime, but they’re making gains: think of A Silent Voice, which had a woman director, Naoko Yamada (K-ON!), and the scriptwriter Reiko Yoshida, who also wrote Lu Over the Wall.
Anime Supremacy! reflects this, being told through the eyes of three women in anime. One’s a producer, one a director and one an animator, and the book tells each of their overlapping stories in turn. The women work in TV, and Anime Supremacy! focuses on one season – the three-month period in which new shows fight for attention in the niche market. This is not primarily a fight for renewal, for more episodes. Many of today’s anime are designed to run for no more than a dozen episodes. Instead, the fight is for DVD and toy sales… and, for sentimental pros who think of more than numbers, the fight is for their shows to be remembered by viewers, like the Heidis and Gundams before them.
