24th September 1995


There was a major error in the 3rd September bulletin. The Patlabor 2 screenings have NOT been put off. The dates are as originally reported - 26th, 27th and 29th of September. My sincere apologies - the brain cells responsible have been severely disciplined and have promised not to do it again.

More Kiseki info

Mock-up sleaves for the new batch of Kiseki releases arrived this week:

Sol Bianca 1 & 2: "SOL BIANCA a space pirate, travels on his space ship with his five sisters...". Something tells me, the blurb writer hasn't actually watched the tape! Sol Bianca is the name of the ship the girls travel in, and their not sisters! Nice covers otherwise. Subtitled / 15 certificates / 55 and 45 minutes.
Digital Devil: I haven't heard of this one. Looks like your standard "boy meets girl, demon attacks girl, boy kicks demon butt" story. Subtitled / 18 certificate / 50 minutes.
The Cockpit: "Leiji Matsumoto presents..." - i.e. he didn't actually have anything to do with the production of the OAVs. Not to worry - "directed and written by Yoshiaki Kawajiri" - a change from his usual fare (Ninja Scroll, Wicked City, etc.). Three war stories in typical Matsumoto style. Subtitled / 15 certificate / 70 minutes.
