Have you ever sat there waiting for an episode to appear online at Tokyo Toshokan or a video site at the weekend, checking it every half hour or so?  That's what I'm doing presently.  XD

.......... I used to go out and have fun on saturdays.  :(

I used to check every hour or so but uploads are really lax these days. They seem to take their time uploading more and somedays I end up finding what I wanted a week later.

Great show- shame it didn't get as much credit as it deserved or they might have made a second season.  The manga's good as well- I really need to catch up on it though.....

I've heard some of the animation in the latest episode of P4 is pretty bad in places.

I just started watching this Danshi Koukousei No Nichijou (The Daily Lives of Highschool Boys) out of curiousity. It sounded like your typical fujoshi garbage but its pretty damn funny especially this part from episode 1.

Yes, there doesn't seem to be a lot of anime on blu-ray over here. I almost bought the blu-ray version of Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood box set 1 but changed my mind at the last moment and got the regular dvd version instead. Glad I did, since they cancelled the blu-ray versions over here midway through the series. I only way I think to get the blu-ray discs was to import them.

Since then, I decided just to buy any future anime on dvd.

Yeah Anime on Blu-ray in the UK is terrible.

Like Fullmetal Alchemist theres been a few series that Manga started bringing out only to cancel after the first disc, because they didnt sell as well as Manga had hoped. Funny thing is if you talk to a lot of fans they will say they didnt buy the first disc because they wanted to see if Manga would release the second on Blu ray.

Is there really any point to anime on Blu-ray though? It can't do that much for the picture quality, surely?

Yep! It makes a big difference. I watched Origin on blu-ray and straight after I watched 5 Centimeters Per Second on DVD, even though it's a good film it looked really crap! Evangelion is a perfect example of how good anime looks on blu-ray.

I'm still not sold on Blu-ray though as a format for films. I watch stuff for its content rather than its picture quality, which is kind of crazy seeing as anime depends heaviy on its picture quality and animation. I'm more about the story..

'Nuff said.  The Eva remakes just wouldn't be the same without Bluray quality presentation. 

Story and character's important too obviously- but if I buy something on Bluray it needs to look danm good.  Not like the Eureka 7 movie that I bought on BR- honestly I was sure there'd been a mistake and they'd put a DVD in the box by accident.  :(

I agree! I bought Akira on blu-ray, WHY I don't know because it looks exactly the same on DVD, bare in mind it's over 20 years old :D But it's one of my favourite films and I think now I have it on VHS, DVD twice and blu-ray. I don't think I will buy any anime on blu-ray just because the picture quality is better, it has to have a good story.
