I recon they do good work.
They're DVDs are much improved. Fewer glitches, and a higher standard than ever. Boxes for series are especially nice now. Not flimsy cardboard like earlier efforts with Evangelion.
They licence a wider range of titles than what they used to, even delving into sub only titles, which at one time they hesitated to even try. The same with Shoujo titles like Fruits Basket, which they once hesitated to look into. It's a pity that ADV Sailor Moon licence expired. It would of been interesting to see how Madman handled that release. Ah, well.

They are doing really great. I hope that Madman continue to do great work as they have one very loyal customer right here.

Aside from the strong feeling that I, as an end consumer, get from the prices being more expensive than the competition [edit:- I do apologise -- I meant to say "resellers"](that feeling being that I am too small and insignificant to do business with, though if I throw them enough money they will deign to do so), no problems at all.

I'll have to agree as well....
They're growing faster as the main anime producer in Australia, actually, the ONLY anime producer in Australia hahah....

I just hope they become big enough to start producing titles themselves....

I love Madman! If it's possible, then I'd always choose Madman over other companies, they do great work and try their hardest to bring us the stuff we want! They've even started releasing Manga, which has certainly made me very happy, (patiently awaiting the rest of Tenchi) and they're trying new things, like Asian Cinema and Sub only releases.

Aside from a few minor issues (just small things slipping through QC), Madman are going strong. They have improved greatly over their first couple of releases, in both packaging and content. The have also improved by branching out into niche markets (sub only, Mezzo, etc.) and including other medium's such as manga and asian cinema in their catalogue.

They seem like a quality company working their asses off to bring us lots of titles and thats exactly whats happening. Very Happy

There are some moments when I raise my brow though Razz

edit - On a more serious note I am not sure if the name "MadMan Entertainment" is helping to bring anime to a wider audience... though the company name is probably irrelevant in the grand scheme of things ~ Just my opinion.

I personally think that soon, for madman, the name will be very important.... I think that through advertising, the name will be relevant... Especially if they start probing out TV screens with anime Very Happy

definately improving from what i've seen - although i have to admit i haven't bought any new madman disks for about 4 months (i'm trying to cut back my spending).

Some great titles being licenced and often released with very little delay after the R1's (and well before the T2 UK versions).

Ehh???? Are you even aware what Madman do? This post has trolling written all over it.

FYI, Madman are the company that licenses and produces the anime DVDs that are being sold here in Australia. These DVDs are the ones we buy and watch our favourite shows on. Hence, since they make the DVDs, we can give them feedback on the quality of them, and helping them improve their products.

I don't think any one needs to reply to that post, except Stephen himself/herself if her wished to explain himself.

I was looking down and reading most of all the replys posted in this Forum and noticed nothing. But the same comment? And this information is not feedback in any means this Forum actually makes no sense and insults yours, and everyone elses intelligences who have replied to this I shouldn't of commented anyways at which I apoligize.

And at most counts this is just proberly a feudral attempt for people to get higher "Posts" counts.

He's got a point, really.

This thread is pretty useless. It's only telling Madman what they already know, pretty much.

Personally, I think Madman do a good job for the materials they get, but I think there's a lot of room for improvement, too.

Well, what you're saying is very idealistic... But in reality, feedback as simple as "you're doing great" influences the higher ups, having about 10 of the same message makes it more powerfull, having 50 or even 100 posts of how great madman is doing shows that their system of production is ont he right track....

In the Market, this will either mean, they will continue their process, or use surplus funds to expand and re-create itself.... Madman started off releasing anime, then moved into sub only and then asian cinema... All because people not only asked for it, but they gave feedback such as the previous posts....

On the other note... Good work madman, keep those collectors boxes comming out.... I love the art on Noir, and Abenobashi box... In my opinion, better than the ones found int he states.... But can we get a Eva box for everything? Please Wink

Well, Urd you seem to have everythign wrapped up in a neat little package.

But tell me does the Forum message above really say "Madman Marketing suggestions"It's either i'm blind or you seem to be in a different world.I am just saying that this Forum is paticular nothing more nothing less. The feedback you are after and trying to use agasint me is not in this Forum and so your just pointing out the obvious.

I was never pointing out that "Feedback" was bad but just that this Forum made no sense in the terms of "Feedback"

Wether it's pointless or not, or wether it achieves anything is irrelevant. This thread exist for anime fans to express their opinion about Madman. People are entitled to leave both positive and negitive feedback about this company if they want to. That said, many threads I've seen so far are petty complaints in various forms, so it's a nice change to see something positive once in a while. I'm sure Madman staff would appreciate a few compliments now & then, because I would.

I think Madman rocks.

But since we're allowed to complain...

I guess Madman DVDs are a little too expensive. Because DVD prices are so competitive these days you can usually find prices well below RRP if you shop around a bit, but the RRP prices themselves often struggle just to compete with the cost of importing it yourself. I do understand, however, that Madman is a relatively small company and they have some pretty big overheads.

Also, Madman basically runs the anime scene in Australia (since they hold almost all the distribution rights!) and therefore they need to not only diversify *what* they distribute, but *how* they get it out there. Don't get me wrong, they already do this -- but I can't help but feel that maybe there's room to expand even more, especially in the TV arena. I know Madman is probably making a killing (considering their size) licensing stuff like Dragon Ball Z/GT, but just as an example, I still think it'd be a great idea for Madman to find a slightly more mature anime series with some level of mass-market appeal and approach the commercial TV networks looking to get it shown in a late night timeslot. Even if Madman got a raw deal, it'd be a great growth opportunity. I mean, come on, we're talking midnight or thereabouts, surely someone other than SBS would at least be willing to give it a shot for a few weeks and "take it from there". Or maybe I'm just living in the dream world of an anime fan. I don't know. Razz

So those are my complaints, but they're hardly major gripes. Keep up the good work, Madman. Cool

I think madman are doing great, and I also think that threads like these are important to balance out all the negative threads (of which we are seeing less and less of now). And this is feedback - we are telling madman how good a job we think they are doing. If that isn't feedback I don't know what is.

I don't know If its just me but does that Stephen guy like to argue a lot?


anyways... I think MM are grand however I'm inclined to agree on the fact that the RRP is a tad pricey on some titles. Perhaps if it was dropped even 2 or 3 dollars it would be much easier on the pockets... or even if they lowered the price on just the first volume of the series'? I know that seem a bit dodgy but I think it would be good. I don't know about you but I generally buy the first DVD of a series and once I've decided if it's good I will normally always continue collecting the whole series. If the first DVD is lowered in price then maybe it would encourage people to buy even more new series'.

Madman itself usually does a good job, however their replicator is a different story. I haven't had any problems with Madman discs themselves (although my friend did with Bowling for Columbine), but they still manage to stuff up simple tasks (like inserting booklets). Surely, for their customers, they could trial another replicator?

I've seen some of your other posts and all you do is complain about madman and all that. So what if people want to congratulate Madman on the amazing effort they put in for us, if you have nothing nice to say/type/post then keep away from this board.


Yeah I think Madman do a great job and yeah I've never had to import because they have what I want but if you release Cardcaptor sakura I won't ever have to import Very Happy *nudge*

Why??? We have been asked for opinions so we should all give them good or bad. I've expressed my opinon often enough. Needless to say it's not positive, & for it I am an avid importer, BUT I get the best stuff with a minimum of fuss or problems.

Dizrythmia I wasn't reffering to his opinion of Madman but of this bored and how he thought this bored was a waste of time thats all he can say what ever he wants about the company as that is the point of this bored but saying its pointless then why post on it?

I wonder about Madman's pricing too. IIRC, they upped their standard price from $30 to $35 when the dollar was down at US50c, so it made sense in terms of costs to them for licences etc. But now the dollar is up to nearly US80c. So can't Madman come back down to $30 now?

I wonder about Madman's pricing too. IIRC, they upped their standard price from $30 to $35 when the dollar was down at US50c, so it made sense in terms of costs to them for licences etc. But now the dollar is up to nearly US80c. So can't Madman come back down to $30 now?


They have.


Hmm, so they have. I was thinking of the Nadesico movie and the Love Hina specials which are sadly $35. Apologies for my stupidity. Good onya Madman. So why are people whinging about their prices?

I guess that some DVDs are $35 with very little content i.e. Nadesico movie.

I think Madman is a great company. I think they'd be better if they had some decent competition though. It's a bit sad that the US can manage something like 10 anime DVD companies and we can only support one, even with the same number of titles available.

What about them? eh?

Siren do have a few nice titles they've managed to get their hands on. However, they still manage to make some mistakes with their releases. It's not like Madman don't make mistakes, but Siren seems to be more frequent with them appearing. and they're just simple things usually, mainly dealin with their subtitles and covers. Though, I believe it wont be too long till Siren begin pulling their heads in and release alot more problem free releases. They're finally beginning to get their act together and with a few titles and if they keep this up, who knows.
