What do YOU want to see?

Post by thetoddfather » Mon Jan 11, 2016 9:32 am

Hey all,

I'm Todd and am the video room coordinator this year. I am looking for some video room feedback. What would you like to see? I'll do my best to get permission to show some of them.

Ground rules.

1. No fan-subs or things that haven't been licensed domestically
2. nothing that is undergoing a current or recent Theater run, they just won't license those :-( I've been trying though most companies just don't have the BD's to share yet.
3. No Hentai

I'm only in control of the normal video rooms, but I can bug the Fan Parody people to get over here and look if you have ideas.

I would suggest, for those who are relatively new to anime, we should always try to pay homage to some of the greats that have come before they began watching. Suggested Series/Movies include - Akira, Astro Boy, Big O, Black Jack, Cowboy Bebop, Death Note, Eureka Seven, FLCL, Gatchaman, Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex, Goldenboy, Kiki's Delivery Service, Lupin the 3rd, Mobile Suit GUNDAM Wing, Mobile Suit GUNDAM OO, Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Ninja Scroll, One Piece, Outlaw Star, Project A-Ko, Rurouni Kenshin, Sailor Moon, Sorcerer Hunters, Speed Racer, Spirited Away, Steamboy, Summer Wars, Tenchi Muyo OVA, The Slayers, The Wings of Honneamise, Thundercats, Vampire Hunter D, Voltron & Yu Yu Hakusho to name a few.
"Thou who art darker than even darkness,
Thou who art deeper than even the night!
Thou, the Sea of Chaos, who drifts upon it,
Golden Lord of Darkness!
Hereby I call to thee,
Hereby I swear before thee!
Those who would stand against us,
All those who are fools,
By the power you and I possess,
Grant destruction equally upon them all!
GIGA SLAVE!"

I'll second a lot of what's on Kalyoth's list!

Also, as I have in the past, I'd like to suggest a few titles that (IMHO) sometimes get lost in the shuffle.

First, some oldies (and trying my best to avoid titles in licensing hell)...
The Wallflower
Pumpkin Scissors
Kiddy Grade
Rozen Maiden
Ninja Nonsense
DearS
Bubblegum Crisis
(to my mind, a forgotten classic)
Robot Carnival (yes, there is a R1 DVD!)

And a few more recent...
Maoyu
Good Luck Girl!
Dusk Maiden of Amnesia
The Garden of Words
(or anything from Makoto Shinkai, actually)
Hozuki's Coolheadedness
Okami-san and Her Seven Companions
C - Control: The Money and Soul of Possibility
AB 2003-2018; pre-reged for 2019!
2006, '12, '13: Commander Ikari (Evangelion)
2007: Dr. Akai (Maburaho)

A lot of these might be difficult or too new to get licensing, but one can hope. Here are my ideas:
- Galaxy Express 999 (1978)
- Tenchi Muyo (1992)
- Ninja Scroll (1993)
- Neon Genesis Evangelion (1995)
- Serial Experiments Lain (1998)
- Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion (2006)
- Spice and Wolf (2008)
- Steins;Gate (2011)
- The irregular at magic high school (2014)
- I Can't Understand What My Husband Is Saying (2014)
- Overlord (2015)

And so many of the ones posted already are good!!! :)

Gundam The Origin (the first episode at least, possibly more) would be my number one pick.

Not sure if we’re still able to make requests for the 2018 video programming (this thread is kinda old) but just wanted to put in a request for the currently airing Pop Tram Epic. Besides the fact that the show is just great in general, it seems like the kind of show that would be really fun to watch in a big group together!

I know this thread is from 2016, but, with this year's theme being To The Stars, I thought of a title that would be fitting: Stratos 4, and also Stratos 4: Return To Base. :) :) The series originally ran from January-March of 2003.

Likely late for this year - but good for next year as well - Mobile Suit Gundam Origins - I totally enjoying this series retelling. The Wings of Honneamise is an old favorite. Mobile Suit Gundam 0083: Stardust Memory, Char's Counterattack would fit right in. Outlaw Star, Cowboy Bebop.

I thought of another title for this year, if possible: Daft Punk's Interstella 5555: The 5tory of the 5ecret 5tar 5ystem. ^_^ ^_^

I've never seen Mobile Suit Gundam Origins, and I can't remember if I saw Char's Counterattack, but all the other ones you listed, I love them all!! Great suggestions!! :D :D

Just as a head up, we are going to try something a little different this year (2019). We are going to be focusing on movies this year. We are hoping to have between 60% and 70% of total video content be 1 hour+ movies. In general we've found that they are better attended and fans are less likely to have already seen them on a streaming platform.

Stay Tuned!

Well then, you should have a variety of fairly recent releases (not necessarily recent productions) that should still be under license. A fair number of films on this list are Discotek/Eastern Star titles:

Arcadia of My Youth
Ringing Bell
Colorful
Hal
Hells
Robot Carnival
In This Corner of the World
Mary and the Witch's Flower
Your Name
Napping Princess
A Letter to Momo
Aura: Koga Maryun's Last War
The Life of Budori Gusuko
Night on the Galactic Railroad
Like the Clouds, Like the Wind
Miss Hokusai
Panda, Go Panda!
Vampire Hunter D/Bloodlust
The Empire of Corpses
Genocidal Organ
<harmony/>

Some level setting for you all, In general Studio Ghibili films are a non-starter. Specific requirements from Japan make it a very big equipment/financial commitment to show anything. You need to either show 35mm or via theatrical playback equipment, we aren't likely to do this because of the expense. Maybe some year, but this isn't the year. I do ask every single year if this requirement has changed.

Most other companies don't have this requirement and BluRay or digital playback system specific formats are fine. (like last year when we showed Mary and the Witches Flower)

Everything else on your lists was on my consideration list. In general the split between studios having a home video dept and a theatrical department means that showing some of the films mentioned above aren't available via our normal channels or are expensive.

We have a bunch of great stuff lined up. I'm really stoked for what we've gotten this year.

I realized just now I had listed as one of my movie requests "A Distant Voice". I meant to type "A Silent Voice". WHOOPS!! LOL!! I fixed that. :D :D

Thank you also for explaining about the differences between Studio Ghibli films and films from other companies. I never knew that before.

I'm looking forward to seeing what you have in store this year. ^_^ ^_^
