GME! Anime Fun Time Episode # 22 – Ranma 1/2

ranma_bluray_05

The October entry of GME! Anime Fun Time isn’t exactly spook-tacular: Tom, Sean Forster, Dawn, and I look back on the early days of our fandom with a title that used to be terribly important to all of us: Ranma 1/2. Topics of discussion include Rumiko Takahashi’s other works, how our tastes have changed over the years, and how Hayao Miyazaki created the universe (not really). Is Ranma 1/2 a classic, or something that is better left to the past? CLICK HERE or on the Bluray cover above to download our review and find out.

GME! Anime Fun Time Episode # 13 – Read or Die (2001)

read-or-die-ova1

It’s time once again for some anime fun, and on this occasion Tom and I are talking about the 2001 OAV series Read or Die, which is based on a series of light novels and a manga by Hideyuki Kurata. Read or Die is a stylish, action-packed romp in which the super-powered forces of the British Library face off against evil clones of various semi-obscure historical figures bent on world domination. It’s a little bit James Bond, a little bit X-men, and just a teeny-tiny bit steampunk. (No, not the bad steampunk. The good steampunk.)

Final Thought:

Reading is fun-damental.
