Why 0.30? Because it’s about one third of where I’d like it to be. Demo version 1.00 would be the end of the Opal mansion scenario.
Here’s round two.
In ancient /a/ tradition, I’ll use this post as a chance to “convince someone to read a manga with just one page.”
I’ll say nothing, only post the page. I will break from tradition and actually provide source though.
So, the final day was kind of a wind-down, but that’s about what I expected.
The highlight of the day was my planned attendance at a voice actor Q&A panel since I had an important question to ask of Troy Baker. How did it all turn out? Read on…
Dwah? Another one so soon?
Believe it or not, this is the last tape in my pile… because every other tape left in my queue has a block preventing my tuner from capturing it. Except maybe Robo Formers. That one’s just plain old. Oh wait, there’s still Captain America II. I guess there’s that.
From what I could gather, this was actually a made-for-TV movie. I wonder what network would be stupid enough to actually order this. I’m literally at a loss for who the target audience for this movie is.
I almost didn’t get around to this because I thought it was another “disqualified” tape. As it turns out, the problem was with the connection between my VCR and the tuner. And also because of how terrible the quality of the actual tape was.
Yeah, that certainly couldn’t have helped.
Anyway, despite being headed by someone actually famous, this makes the “Crap You’ve Never Heard Of” section because I’m willing to bet you’ve never heard of it, much less watched it. And so, my review of the 1977 film…
Okay, so I bought a bunch of B-movies recently, increasing my VHS load considerably. I have no regrets. And if there’s one thing you can count on to be B-quality, it’s ninjas.
It’s been a long time since I touched on live-action, but I just couldn’t help it. When I saw this on the racks at The Beat, I knew I was in for something special.
After looking at the previews before the movie, I can only come to the conclusion that the film makers, Dead Alive Productions, are the most brilliant people in the universe. They seem to have struck an amazing balance that makes them the perfect B-movie makers ever. Spectacularly low-budget, bad in every aspect of film, and takes the project seriously enough that you can’t mistake it for being a parody.
And so I reveal to you the piece of crap known only as…
I picked up the first volume of Gunslinger Girl back in 2004. RPG, Elf, and I decided to go manga shopping at Waldenbooks and Gunslinger Girl managed to catch my eye that day. Eight years and 100 chapters later, the story has finally reached it’s conclussion.
