Hey guys long time no hear or speak.
Seems you people having been going out of control on this discussion board (good and bad)!

Just thought i would let you all know, i have seen the release schedule for the next year almost and there are some kick ass anime titles on it.

But the big one I heard being talked about here at work is Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust.
Now its unofficial at this stage as I have just overheard Tim talking about it on the phone and when he is not at his desk i have managed a quick look at his emails and seen various little hints. I dont even know if I am allowed to tell all you guys but I am. Just hope Tim doesnt read this particular post!! Or my ass could be on the street and I will have to come and work for you guys!
anyway keep it under wraps until I get confirmation or I can find out some more.

Oh one more thing before I go...does anyone else like Mezzo Forte, Kite, Sakura Diaries, Dirty Pair Flash etc....? I really want Tim to release a few of these types of titles, but he wont listen to me..so i need all you guys to tell me which is the best title from that 'special' category, then once we have decided on the best one, we can all pressure and hassle tim into releasing it! sound good?

ok thanks for your time guys!
Cheers
Matt

P.S. I have one thing I want to leave with you all...... "SUIT UP"

Ooer.

Sounds like some interesting stuff going on there.

TBH Bloodlust doesn't interest me at all, so your secret is safe with me.

As to the other titles, I would be interested in seeing Sakura Diaries released locally. It would be good for Madman to release some more, uh, "mature" titles occasionally, and Sakura Diaries would be a good test of the market. As for the others on that list, I can't say I want to see them.

As for Dirty Pair Flash, I'd much rather see the original Dirty Pair series and OAVs released instead. Flash is pretty crap compared to them, and the original OAV series is available.

"SUIT UP" ey... I should know that one...

We might need a special H section if Madman is going to be releasing alot of these sorts of titles in the forseeable future.
Who would mod it though? *shudders*

Sakura Diaries would be good - I'm currently tossing around whether to import ADV's Collector Edition boxset and I'd normally run a mile from this sort of stuff.

And yeah, I was sure that Siren had Vampire D: Bloodlust unless they've lost the licence (or never had it in the first place <ahem> )

Siren Visual Entertainment mentioned they already have the rights to the Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust movie. So either your source is wrong or something strange is going on....

Welcome back Matt. ^_^ Vikki said that you'd been on holidays from Madman recently.

XD I don't really know about those 'special' titles, how about you convince Tim to licence some shoujo titles instead?

Once again I'd like to state (for the record) that Sakura Diaries really shouldn't be considered one of those "special titles" .

I wouldn't mind (e.g. would buy) the uncut versions of Kite or Mezzo Forte.

I didn't think Dirty Pair Flash fell into the "special" category? I'd buy this title too anyway (Flash or Original, I was going to import Flash but some other titles made me buy them ).

P.S. I loved Sakura Diaries and would recommend it (to anyone above the age of about 15 anyway as it does contain a couple of mature themes/scenes, nothing really beyond what you would see in an M rated TV series though, and actually, except for those one or two parts/themes, it could probably get away with a lesser rating)

P.P.S. Get the collectors edition of it (cheaper and much better).

------------------

I've really got to think of a signature one of these days.

GRRRRR!

Anyway, yes, these titles would test the waters of Australia (and get thrown into a jail of sorts), but I can see why Tim is hesitant. Look at OMG for example - the covers and the advertising (of which I have seen zero) all pretty much ignore the romance side of things. Unless there is action or comedy, I'd think long and hard before releasing here. I am only aware of Sakura Diaries and while there is some funny moments, it is a soap opera and also a rental at best to most viewers I would guess.

So for that special category (ie as close as one can get to hentai without it being hentai - and no, hentai is not all about tentacles) and given comedy or action, Dirty Pair is teh win (but only the original - not flash) and also Mezzo Forte. As a side note, although ADV lists Sakura Diaries as comedy as well as a drama, it's not really particularly comedic - more tongue in cheek. I hope people don't go in thinking it will be a comedy (like I did) as it really is mostly drama. Kite, I think, probably would be a random variable.

So... from the titles mentioned, the Original Dirty Pair (as StorminNorman has said) and Mezzo Forte would be my picks for the special category.

P.S. SUIT UP could be anything. I don't have a clue.

I absolutely *love* Kite and Mezzo Forte.

A suggestion: If these two films were released, I'd love it to be uncut, but also to see an option to be able to watch a censored version of the film, like one option that would skip "those" bits (say make a selection that would make the player skip skip a chapter) is this possible? It would be a really good feature. I'd really love to have the choice.

I really do hope Madman release Vampire Hunter D Bloodlust instead of Siren. Siren have not yet proven a worthy company. While I already own Sakura Diaries I'd like to see it down here in Australia. Unfortunately the superior collectors edition is unlikely because it's sub only.

Perhaps it's all the other Gundam series that Bandai have released so far (08th MS Team, 0083, G-Saviour movie, etc)?

Just a thought.

I just spoke to Siren Visual Entertainment, they were planning to sign a deal for a set of five anime movie (Including Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust) but the deal offered was recently withdrawn. So it looks like Madman pinched the titles off Siren, which I'm sure people around here won't mind.
The deal was for the following five anime movies so I expect Madman now have the rights to all five:
Bio Hunter movie
Golgo 13: Queen Bee movie
Psycho Diver movie
Twilight Of The Dark Master movie
Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust movie

Not necessarily; the companies Siren were requesting licences from quite possibly caught wind of how Siren have been handling their anime releases (keep in mind R4 anime is discussed on the forums at AoDVD, which is frequented by the respective licencing companies in the US) and decided not to go ahead.

Back to the topic though - I can see Dirty Pair doing well down here. I don't know much about Kite, aside from hearing that the sexual content is quite graphic. Is there a provactative story behind the visuals, or is it a case of an anime with plenty of flesh, but no meat?

Well the major complaint against Siren's anime titles so far has been no subtitles for Japanese versions and the companies licencing those anime titles would have known about that through the contracts (Since subtitles were not part of contracts). If the English subtitles aren't available for Japanese versions of future anime DVDs, Siren will make them English only (Which was meant to happen with Tenamonya Voyagers DVD). If a company was worried about that issue they could have easily made sure subtitles were part on any deal offered...

Mezzo Forte and Kite uncut would be good, but I dont see them being released anytime soon. I havnt seen the shows but from what Ive heard/read theres young characters involved in graphic sexual situations that arnt "nice". If you check out www.oflc.gov.au here are guidelines for RC ( refused classification ?)

*depict, express or otherwise deal with matters of sex, drug misuse or
addiction, crime, cruelty, violence or revolting or abhorrent
phenomena in such a way that they offend against the standards of
morality, decency and propriety generally accepted by reasonable
adults to the extent that they should be classified RC.

and

depict in a way that is likely to cause offence to a reasonable adult a
person who is or who looks like a child under 16 (whether or not
engaged in sexual activity)

it also said somewhere that X rated ( from what Ive told Mezzo Forte would be X ) is only for sale in ACT/NT. Is that correct?

Anyway Im just bummed my Wordsworth box got seized by customs/consumer protections along with other stuff... dont mind me move along

I doubt Mezzo Forte and Kite would have too many problems with the OFLC. At worst, they'd cop an 'R' rating.

I've seen imports of both discs available at Minotaur here in Melbourne, along with various other hentai titles (Mostly NuTech - 9 O'Clock Woman, Imma Youjo, Very Private Lesson, LA Blue Girl among others) of various types. So it's not like it's impossible to import hentai into this country.

For something to be refused classification, it has to be *very* explicit (the movie Dead Man comes to mind), and, from what I hear, most RC stuff is pretty terrible anyway.

I also noticed that the 2nd last time I was up in Sydney that Cartoon Gallery had some RC titles on their shelves, but I don't remember if they still had stuff like that there when I was there the other week.

I'm going to be kinda honest here and admit that the scenes in question in Mezzo Forte don't really add much to the movie. If you have a look at most reviews, they share this view. The scences are *very* graphic, BGB type stuff, fluids included.

Kite on the other hand, needs the sexual content, even though some of the naster parts of the sex scenes could be cut (although preferably not - see my last reply). In Kite, it's pretty important to the story.
As far as the legality of the characters, in Kite, the girl is in "College" (at least in the sub I've seen) at the "time" of the film, but some scenes suggest there's been a long sexual history. I think the girl in MF is also >18. I don't think it's mentioned she isn't, so I guess you can get away with it... The OFLC would probably be more concered with the very short, very jarring, and very explicit sex scenes in MF.

I hope I've been vague enough not to scare the kiddies, and clear enough to be understood.

Actually, the complaints extend to poor encoding on the discs, poor package design and the subsequent bad repuatation Siren is quickly earning for themselves. At least, that's what I have been led to believe, across the board that is. In contrast, Madman have been doing an excellent job, bar the DVD-5/9 issue (which is looking hopeful with the latest release) and recent Orphen/Kenshin audio problems.

Ok guys the picture I get is you are not into Golden Boy, Mezzo Forte, Kite and Sakura Diaries and all related titles as much as I am!

I think the only reason I like it is because it is different to all the other thousands of anime out there. I mean I dont see much difference between those titles and Urotsukidoji or Wicked City. Sure the 'naughty' scene in MF is not needed for the story to work, but it makes the title interesting and thus aimed at a dfifferent age bracket - 18-35 year old men.

I will admit I am too old for Card Captors, Love Hina and even Dragon Ball Z. etc..

So maybe i should have asked if you are over 18 years of age would those type of titles appeal to you? To rent or buy? They are not full on Hentai like some titles i have seen such as Cool Devices, they are more subtle and less explicit.

Anyway i will do a little back flip and ask another question...or a little survey I should say.

How old are you?
M or F?
Have you seen any titles such as Mezzo Forte, Kite, Sakura Diaries, Golden Boy, Dirty Pair Flash etc?
If yes what title?
Did you like them? - yes or no?
If not is it because of the sexy scenes or because the story was lame or the animtion was average etc?

I thought the action and story in Mezzo Forte was awesome. And I found Sakura Diaries to be extremely funny, i was not offended by it.

Dont worry about what the OFLC would do or say.
I assume they will only be for people over the age of 18 + so dont worry about little kids seeing them, there is a lot worse out there already. Just watch the news any weeknight!

thanks so much guys and dont get me wrong or think i am a seedy, desperate old man with no life! HAHAHA
just curious to get some demographical feedback on these awesome yet very specific titles!!

Reading back over this thread, I get the impression that some people may have mistakine Dirty Pair for a series on the level of Mezzo Forte or Kite.

While it does contain the sexiest woman in anime, Dirty Pair is not hentai. It's a sexy-girls-with-bigarse-guns-blowing-up-much-stuff anime.

They just happen to wear really revealing uniforms is all.

And before you ask, I'm talking about Yuri, obviously. Kei needs a new hairdresser.

It seems I have this habit of posting straight after you, Matt.

Oh, and please, read my above comments on Dirty Pair with regards to Dirty Pair Flesh^HFlash.

Yes.

Dirty Pair Flash.

Did you like them? - yes or no?


No. I prefer the original Dirty Pair to DPF.

quote:

If not is it because of the sexy scenes or because the story was lame or the animtion was average etc?


Poor characterisation.


I'd just like to add that the original Dirty Pair (OAVs and TV series) is one of my favourite anime series ever, and I would die of happiness if MM would release it locally.

Dirty Pair Flash isn't even close to it in terms of overall quality.

And again, I reiterate: DIRTY PAIR IS NOT LIKE KITE OR MEZZOFORTE AT ALL!

If not is it because of the sexy scenes or because the story was lame or the animtion was average etc? Because the aformentioned titles don't really appeal to me. I prefer to watch titles that mainly come from my intended demographic, and edits like Cardcaptors and Sailor Moon don't count as serious shoujo releases IMO.

Of the titles you've mentioned I have only seen Sakura Diaries, albeit the cut version. I've read up on the LD version and the extra material would only warrant an MA rating down here. In my opinion it's not really hentai but more a mixture of romance, comedy, drama and just a little bit of hentai. I liked it because of the story. It really had me hooked and I've now seen all 12 episodes three times. Also I would really like to see Madman release titles such as this and the other ones you mentioned because it would add real diversity to the Australian anime market.

Yes, I loved SD (collectors Edition), I thought it had a great story and i really dont see how people class it as "hentai", it IS NOT! DP Flash I also like alot, but I do agree with the original being better. The OVA series, TV series and movies are excellent.


I am inpatiently waiting for news on the new MM aquisitions........I hope "suit up" means more gundam by the way, but I will still need to get the movie trilogy boxset from the US I guess seeing as it is sub only.

before context becomes a thing of the past, when i refered to hentai, i am refering to mezzo forte and kite as a reply to kloppy's post and kloppy's post alone. sd and dp-whatever are not hentai.

Hi Gang,

Matt is one of our non-anime designers. Seems he is a bit of a sick puppy as well!! He thinks Dirty Pair is Hentai because he hasn't seen it and has the centrefold from the recent Netwtype USA above his desk!

Get back to work Matt!!

Please flame Matt severelly if he intrudes on you again!

Tim.

Oi~~!

Children's anime is classified as the 'Kodomo' category (which means child in Japanese if you didn't know already). Shoujo is the genre for girls' anime which can have a target audience of girls from anywhere from 6 to 18 years old (not to mention males from teenage years and older ).

I never said anything was Hentai.
I was just asking what people thought of various titles.
I wouldnt say Sakura Diaries is Hentai. No I have not seen Dirty Pair Flash, but it has sexy women in it, just like Plastic Little and their jiggle counters!!
I just wanna get feedback on 'that' genre/style/type of anime that has not been released in Australia yet.
Madman I am working I am researching for you and learning all there is to know about anime too as it seems.

If yes what title?
Golden Boy
Did you like them? - yes or no? Liked it.
If not is it because of the sexy scenes or because the story was lame or the animtion was average etc? Golden Boy is an absolute laugh riot. I wouldn't call it an H series either... it has about as much actual animated nudity as BGC2040, the rest is either fan service or implied.
DNA^2 was another good one that was a touch ecchi, but I've only seen 3 episodes of it, and didn't see any nudity at all, so maybe it shouldn't even be categorised with the aforementioned titles.

Have you seen any titles such as Mezzo Forte, Kite, Sakura Diaries, Golden Boy, Dirty Pair Flash etc?

Yes

If yes what title?

Golden Boy, Sakura Diaries (collectors edition)

Did you like them? - yes or no?

Yes

If not is it because of the sexy scenes or because the story was lame or the animtion was average etc?

I like them both quite a bit. Golden boy is hilarious (definatley comedy). Sakura diaries has an excellent storyline (though I'm not really sure what parts of it would be classed as comedy - I would definatley class it as a romance/drama)


dont get me wrong or think i am a seedy, desperate old man with no life! HAHAHA
just curious to get some demographical feedback on these awesome yet very specific titles!!


sure

I don't know much about Kite, aside from hearing that the sexual content is quite graphic. Is there a provactative story behind the visuals, or is it a case of an anime with plenty of flesh, but no meat?

A lot of flesh ... very littel meat. It's just for someone who has a little too much time of their hands kind of anime....*shudders*

I saw a little of the cut but I turned it off after 5 minutes.

M or F? Male

Have you seen any titles such as Mezzo Forte, Kite, Sakura Diaries, Golden Boy, Dirty Pair Flash etc? Yes

If yes what title? A little of mezzo Forte and Kite

Did you like them? - yes or no? No

If not is it because of the sexy scenes or because the story was lame or the animtion was average etc? I just felt that the sex scenes were tasteless, very graphic had nothing to do with the plot or anything. Sorry just my view.

If this also refers to why I haven't seen them, it's because of lack of interest to acquire them through importation.

btw.. I like seeing madman staff actually respond to threads, etc.. I think it adds character to the boards. so good job
