My copy of K-ON! The Movie arrived yesterday, but – surprise surprise – it took me a good 24 hours or so to finally scrape together just enough energy to pop the disc into my PS3.
I might put together a more comprehensive review (including the physical product) in the next few days, but for the moment, here’s what I thought of the film.

A week after leaving Italy with a lifetime’s worth of incredible memories in tow (more on those in future posts), Diego quietly slips back into his old otaku ways with a quick unboxing session.
Today the spotlight falls on the limited edition Blu-ray release of Shinkai Makoto’s 2011 film Hoshi o Ou Kodomo.

I’ve wanted to add CLANNAD to my anime video collection almost from the day it first aired. Too bad the R1 release has, so far, been DVD-only.

My copy of the US Blu-ray release of Summer Wars arrived yesterday. Freeing it from its box, I popped the disc into a waiting PS3 with the intention of doing a quick-skip through (to check for defects and what-not) before consigning it to my weekend watchlist. Enjoying an evening movie is something I haven’t had much time or energy for recently.
That was the plan, anyway.
In the end, I couldn’t stop watching.
It was easily the best anime film I’ve seen in . . . well, since I started watching anime (pace Nagato and Disappearance). After the credits, I wasn’t just picking my jaw up from the floor – I was crawling around trying to collect various fragments of jaw that had exploded everywhere through sheer delight and exhilaration.
Whether I’ll have time to write a review remains to be seen, but it will go on Wolf Hurricane if it does come out. For now, cheerio.

Time to break my last anime Blu-ray acquisition of the year out of its box and into the harsh light of public scrutiny.
Today the spotlight falls on the Amazon-Japan-exclusive version of the limited edition of the Blu-ray release of (whew, so many qualifiers) of the 2010 animated film The Disappearance of Suzumiya Haruhi.

Before I hit the sack and dream happy dreams about the coming weekend — savouring thoughts of a much-needed respite from the drudgery of the daily grind — I’ll take a few moments to dust off the cobwebs from this long-neglected blog with a quick unboxing session.
Today the spotlight falls (mmm, how long has it been since I last wrote those words?) on the just-released Blu-ray box set of the theatrical version of Eve no Jikan.
