AniPac Episode 56: In the name of the chimp

Download Episode 56 here.

In what was supposed to be a "copout" episode, turned out to be one of our most epic yet. 130 minutes! Alex also pre-recorded a whole heap of goodies to keep us entertained in his absence.

Warning: My review for Dominion is in the range of about 60 minutes, so It's at the end, if you're not interested, you'll probably want to stop listening at around the 1 hour mark.

AniPac drinking game: Although I don't drink, I'm sure this will be fun for those of you who do. Everytime I say "And, um.." take a swill. Keep a stomach pump handy.

Shootin' The Breeze

Alex explains his absence, and I talk about some site updates.

Edison Chen Scandal Part II

Cecilia Cheung is heading for a divorce and her husband, Nicholas Tse, has taken a paterntity test. She's apparently got another bun in the oven, and it's said that he is almost definitely not the father. She has been apparently seeing about THREE fellows behind her husband back. I feel like smothering anti bacterial cream onto my penis just at the mere mention of her name.

Edison is leaving the Hong Kong entertainment industry.

Gillian Chung's future is uncertain.

Review: Dominion Tank Police

The first Anime I ever bought; The longest review I've ever done.

In fairness, I cover everything; The original OVA, the 2nd OVA series, and the somewhat craptacular "Tank Swat 01" the original manga, and the most recent manga, "Dominion Conflict 1: No More Noise".

Again, be warned. One hour long!

It's a wrap!

Coming up, the adventures of One Particular Irresponsible Space Captain near and dear to our heart.

Made by the same studio as Appleseed, and your enjoyment of the aforementioned film will probably dictate your opinion of this film. Listen for the full review!

It's a wrap!
