On this installment, I look back at anime series whose home video left something (and several disks) to be desired. There’s nothing more irritating to a collector than something being incomplete.
On this fortnight’s episode we mourn the loss of Christopher Lee, discuss Jurassic World‘s amazing box office record, gawk at the release of Mother in the US for the first time, rejoice for the announcement of Shenmue 3, let out a sigh of relief for the American Gods TV show moving forward, let Nick talk about the Cyborg 009/Devilman crossover, and stare puzzled into the abyss at the incompetence of Saskatoon Blitz.
Also, Trae’s going to Oz Con next weekend in West Plains, MO. You should come.

While American fans gear up for Cap fighting Iron-man (and the N&T crew dreads Batman v. Superman), Japan has its own Iconic character throw-down movie in the works!
Initially announced as two separate movies, Shotaro Ishinomori’s classic super-team from Cyborg 009 are going up against Go Nagai’s demonic anti-hero Devilman. Why? Because “AWESOME!” that’s why.
While this is a pretty weird battle, but it sorta makes sense. Young Go Nagai was one of Ishinomori’s assistants on the 009 manga, so I guess the pupil is now the master. Also its being directed by Jun Kagagoe who’s no new-comer to the 00 Cyborgs or Go Nagai’s insanity, so this should be fun. Check out the trailer if you don’t believe me.
