Today was a good day for shopping. I don’t mean the kind of shopping where I trail about after my good lady uttering the mantras of ‘that looks good’ and ‘your bum ain’t fat in that’ I mean the kind of shopping where circumstances provide a golden chance to acquire something you want at a great price and without hassle. Well this happened to me today in Ayr at the local branch of doomed HMV store and also in the mail this morning. Below you can see a picture of the haul. Sorry about the lens flare but shrink wrapping does that. I have listed the titles under the image with links to their IMDB pages if you want to learn more about them.
- Gasaraki – The Summoner (Volume One) . Japanese Anime Mecha Series.
- Gasaraki – The Circle Opens (Volume Two).
- Gasaraki – Betrayal (Volume Three).
- Hirokin the Last Samurai – American Science Fiction Film.
- Samurai Commando 1549 – Japanese Science Fiction Film.
- Mushishi – Japanese Fantasy Film adapted from Anime.
- The Vanquishers – Asian Action Movie from Thailand that promises to be awful!
- Eden Log – French Science Fiction / Horror Movie.
- Natural City – Korean Science Fiction Movie.
- Big Man Japan – Japanese mentalism at its best! See my post on it. (decided to buy it again having given the first one away!).
- Highlander the Search for Vengeance – Anime take on the classic film.
- Dark Fury the Chronicles of Riddick – Anime movie set in Pitch Black universe.
- Dante’s Inferno an Animated Epic – Anime shorts based on a computer game of the same name.
- Starship Troopers Invasion – Anime CGI film in that universe.
This lot cost me just over thirty five pounds sterling including the postage on the Amazon order for Gazariki which was superb. The others were discounted on the racks, discounted and binned and then with a 25% blue sticker sale on top it was like Christmas at two pounds a pop!
I hope to review each of these films and series in the next couple of months. If anyone reading wants something put to the top of the que just email me or comment.
