It’s likely that most Aussie anime fans will be up on new releases of big titles, but just in case…
Last week, Aussie distributor Madman released three classic anime titles on Blu-Ray:
- The complete series of FLCL, which Eugene took a walk down memory lane with the other day;
- Hayao Miyazaki’s classic film, Laputa: Castle in the Sky;
- My Neighbours the Yamadas, also from Studio Ghibli.
You can tell from the ratings we’ve given these over the years how much we love them, and it’s great to see some attention being paid to older titles. Madman kindly sent us some review discs, and they look phenomenal — I haven’t personally got a DVD of Laputa to compare side-by-side, but the Blu-Ray transfer looks and sounds amazing.
(As an aside: Andy wrote up the release of Madman’s earliest Blu-Ray titles in February last year — since then, they’ve added more than 60 more, and there’s a fair helping of both anime and Asian cinema on their books!)
