Blast from DVD Past

July 31st, 2012 by Author

Netflix sent me a DVD with v.1 of Yawara:

It may very well be my last rental DVD ever: Netflix brass hides no disdain for DVD subscribers ever since the failure of Quickster, when the unwashed masses made them to beat a hasty and expensive retreat. They did not forget, and they will do everything to get rid of us. Still, once set in its ways, the machine creaks on. This particular request sat in the account queue more than 3 years, and I am more than a little surprised that it was fulfilled.

Aside from that, how many of you heard about Anime Eigo? I heard it was a truly one-man company. Don’t like the garbage that FUNi licenses? Take action! Call Japanese studios and negotiate deals for masterpieces. Yawara ran together with Ranma 1/2 and had better ratings, BTW.
