Mardock Scramble: The First Compression DVD Review

Looks like the first movie got a good review on ANN.

And not as good a review on Fandom.



Dub Coming Online 10/7!


Just finished up the first movie

[size=14]Holy Hell!![/size]

That was flippin’ awesome!

And man, they sure know how to leave off with one hell of a cliffhanger.

I can’t wait for the next movie now!

These movies are definitely going in my collection.

I was just thinking about watching the movie, but guess I’ll wait a week and see it dubbed.

With everything going on yestertday, I kind of forgot to post the this, but here it is…

Dub & Sub Are Now Online![/quote]
That’s excuse enough to watch it twice. First time subtitled, the second to enjoy Luci, Hilary, and the others.



I just watched the dub tonight and really enjoyed it. The voice work by Hilary was excellent and loved that mouse. I hope it won’t be long for part 2.


I finally watched it (subbed, as I had a feeling I wouldn’t want to multi- this one, turns out I was right), and I think it was great. There was one thing that surprised me though, Balot turned out to be so severely emotionally damaged that it actually triggered my protective instincts. I’m not going to say that they don’t exist, but it’s exceptionally unusual for anyone, or anything, to trigger them. Unfortunately for Oefcuque she needed that brief encounter with going severely violent to even realize just how damaged she was (she was clearly aware of it before, but not of just how bad it was), and unfortunately for her I don’t think he’s going to make it to the next part.

I’ll hold off on trying to come up with the money to purchase it until all three are available, dubbed and subbed, and attempt to get a box set. It’s not because I’m cheap, but because I only make $400 every two weeks (and the blasted child-support further reduces that even) so it’s hard to come up with much cash all that often.

Also, since the sub-titles are going The First Compression and The Second Combustion is the final part going to be The Third Expansion or The Third Explosion?


Well I bought this the day it came out, and really loved it. Easily Andy McAvin’s best performance so far as the mouse. I can’t wait to see the second movie.


Holy crap, Prede is alive! :wink:


I live!!! But seriously I’ve been around, just on twitter.If you want to keep up with me, follow me there. I;ve been really busy with classes this semester too. Still manage to tweet my brains out though.

ANYWAY… Mardock Scramble . I liked the way the main character acted, and her interactions with the mouse. She was a really od person. They were both two characters who were “off” and yet complimented each other. And how about those weird body part people? creepy. The dub was really good, Hilary Haag and McAvin played off of each other quite well.


Erin Finnegan gave this a great review in her shelf life column.

Mardock Scramble: The Third Exhaust Film Trailer Posted

The Japanese website Cinema Today began streaming the trailer for the third and final Mardock Scramble film, Mardock Scramble: The Third Exhaust on Friday. The same footage in the trailer was also in the longer promotional video that debuted in June.

The film will open on September 29, and advance tickets are on sale with an original playing card set for 1,400 yen (about US$18).

In the story, a teenage prostitute named Rune Balot is murdered in an explosion. However, Dr. Easter saves her, and Balot is resurrected as an advanced cyborg. Balot takes on the worst of Mardock City’s criminals as she looks for vengeance.

Megumi Hayashibara voices Rune Balot, and Susumu Kudo is directing the project at the new studio GoHands. Sentai Filmworks licensed the films for North America and released the first film, Mardock Scramble: The First Compression, on Blu-ray in March. Mardock Scramble: The Second Combustion opened in Japanese theaters September 2011 and was released in Japan on English-subtitled Blu-ray Disc and DVD on July 25.

Variety reported in May that a live-action adaptation helmed by writer and director Michael Davis (Shoot 'Em Up, Monster Man) is in the works.


I think they needed to redo the title. We could see it coming, but “exhaust” doesn’t sound flattering. Exhaust isn’t something that I really hear being “counted” by itself either, it just sounds weird to me to say “the third exhaust”.

…I also have misgivings about any anime series with “The Third” in its title after, well, the series titled The Third.

When is Sentai releasing the second movie? I don’t remember a date being announced, sadly. I have both versions of the first one here, but the more I have in glorious HD to get autographed, the better. :smiley: :smiley:


They said during one of their panels (don’t remember which right at the moment) that for the second movie, they will be waiting for the directors cut from the get go, so there’s only going to be one release this time.

Since Nov. solicitations are already out, there’s a chance it might be in the Dec. solicitations.
However, since the JP release hasn’t even been out for 2 months (July 25th), chances are, it won’t be until early 2013 for us.



I remember hearing about the “one release” method for the 2nd movie (not that I minded the first method much, it gave me an excuse to support Sentai twice on one title) as well.

I’m hoping that the movie will come out fairly early in 2013, not just because I want to see it now, but because early 2013 is my “traditional” time to get Chris Ayres autographs :wink:

The Japanese release might have English subs, but I’m not interested in getting that.
“Not gonna do it, wouldn’t be prudent”

Which reminds me,

This has “horrible” written all over it. This was also not prudent. I don’t think that this director has the chops for this; I saw Shoot 'Em Up. :frowning:

Yeah, I posted the news in the Japan Time section when it came up on ANN.


Wow, the trailer for Mardock Scramble on Persona 4 is actually a trailer and not the usual “here’s the intro to the show with no English exposition, have fun” Sentai approach to trailers.
