All Points Bulletin: Season’s BeatingsDecember 4, 2011
If you have any suggestions for what to highlight on an APB drop us a line via email or Twitter.
- LEGO for the Holidays
I spent a good portion of my weekend decorating my place for Christmas. Sadly, I did not have a giant LEGO Christmas tree but now I have a goal!
- Lost Disney Film Found
A short of Oswald the Lucky Rabbit was recently discovered in a UK film archive, it was thought lost forever. The one of a kind film will go up for action later in December. It would great if it was made available online for viewing.
- Everyone Draws Tiger and Bunny
No one can get enough of this crime-fighting duo! Manga-ka from Asuka magazine and various others have posted fan-art from the popular TV series. I would love to see an artbook collected of famous artist interpretations of Tiger and Bunny.
- Intro to CLAMP and Gackt’s Project Streamed
Their live show collaboration MOON SAGA Yoshitsune Hiden will be on USTREAM on December 5th. There aren’t a whole lot of details about it beyond that.
- House of Five Leaves on DVD
FINALLY! FINALLY!! And it wasn’t Funimation who finally made good on this show, but rather NIS America. This also means a very special limited release with artbook coming out in March.
- Robot Wars, Nothing More than Robot Wars
Some movies are so powerful that one podcast cannot tackle them alone. Robot Was requires the combined powers of the The Greatest Movie EVER! Podcast and the The Veef Show. They look at a low budget live action movie with robots fighting each other. What is lack in budget it makes up for in heart. Sounds like more mecha than Michael Bay’s Transformers films. Zing!
- Alto gets to hang out with Hikaru and Basara
The gentleman at Gundamn! also take a crack at the newest Macross Frontier movie. A good look a the merits and flaw of the movie. You can tell that they are all of team Sheryl Nome so their reaction to the end of the love triangle is predicable. They also have their normal mix of news and an extended feed back session. That is an enviable amount of feedback.
- Dave and Joel vs. Video Games. Video Games Did Not Stand a Chance.
The fastest martial arts practitioners make a guest appearance on the ANNCast to round up the year in video games. Dark Souls, Xenoblade Chronicles, Deus Ex: Humn Revolution, Skyrim , Uncharted, and more is discussed. A nice look at the busy time in the video game season.
- Always be prepared with Fate/Zero
I am mentioning that they are making a line of Fate/Zero Swiss army knives. Mostly because it is less depressing than taking about the price of the Fate/Zero box set. Also on a less depressing note is seems that Fate/Apochrypha is going to be a novel.
- Something to Smile About
The first pictures are already available for the new Pretty Cure show Smile Precure! It looks charming and they are relevaing the 5 members of the team right off the bat. I will warn all Pretty Cure fans. The less you expect this show to be Heartcatch the happier you will be.
Again, finally a House of Five Leaves DVD release!
