Anime Review Roundup
Z/X Code Reunion, which isn’t something Sir Clive Sinclair cooked up. It’s not a show which inspires a lot of enthusiasm in a jaded reviewer, but neither is it something that deserves much criticism. It’s a “my first real anime” show, the kind of show you watch when you’re old enough to watch something a little more adult, but don’t want to move too far, or too fast away from the shows you loved as a kid. A team of girls and their extra-dimensional partners have to work together to thwart an alien invasion, and in between the battles, there is a whole lot of slice of life stuff, and no little fan service. Click on the review to see if Code Reunion is for you.
This Week I Have Been Mostly Rewatching...
There have been a few releases of Due South over the years, but for the best value in terms of episode count per disc, plus extras, it was UK’s Network that had the most impressive release; three season collections, and one complete series release as well across 18 discs. It’s deleted now, but if you can find it, snap it up. Here’s my review. In my dreams there is a Blu-ray release of Due South, a show that was shot on film and with minimal visual effects, so it should make an HD version possible. Due South is currently airing in the UK on the Sony Channel, Freeview Channel 49 if you want to try an episode or two.
MVM release Z/X Code Reunion on Blu-ray today.
