Kimagure Orange Road

Genres: action, comedy, drama, romance
Themes: espers, love triangle, superpowers
Plot Summary: Kyosuke Kasuga, fifteen, moves to a new city and falls for Madoka Ayukawa. She’s friendly when they’re alone, but acts like a delinquent when in front of others. Kyosuke meanwhile struggles not to break the heart of Hikaru Hiyama, who fell in love after seeing him make an impossible basketball shot. To add the cherry to this particular sundae, Kyosuke and his family (sisters, grandfather, and cousins) all have various powers. And while Kyosuke’s desperate to keep those powers a secret, his younger sisters (among others) aren’t quite as concerned about it.

KOR on Blu-Ray will be a buy, even though I still have the AnimEigo DVD set

Area 88 will probably be a buy as well

Kimagure Orange Road I’m buying ,but hopefully maybe they will bring Animeigo in as a consultant or something as that was one of their babies .

Also yay Galaxy Express 999 tv to!

Justin Semakis said on twitter that the KOR subs for the Discotek release are the AnimEigo subs with some minor tweaking

Cool !

Now all that I believe is left on my list is Urusei Yatsura and Maison Ikkoku . Have both on DVD ,but the disc count is quite overwhelming so less disc and upgraded video would be great . Plus it gets the shows out to those that might have missed out .

Just think by this time next year (looking like Spring) we will have all of this in a smaller package with better videos and subtitles . Well except movie two .

Now that Megacon is over, I finally got some free time to relax.

As promised @Psychopuppet, started KOR with just episode 1 today. (Sorry. I have about 5 days of new show backlog, + toonami I need to catch up with…)

I thoroughly enjoyed it. The animation was so fluid. Really makes you miss the cell animation of years gone past. Probably my favorite part was that POV shot from the guy in glasses at 18:00.

This will be a keeper, and probably will look into getting a copy of the Blu-ray sometime in the future.

Unfortunately, I’m not the one to marathon series I like, so might still be watching this next year…
