Weekly Digital Disk Picks for June 19th, 2012

This is a pretty poor week, although it does have the odd notoriety of boasting two entirely different films titled Project X.

Title Available Formats
Bakuman – Season 1, Part 1
Alex: I’ve noticed that RightStuf is not listing this release. Considering Media Blasters financial problems, hopefully this isn’t a bad sign.

Fushugi Yugi: Season 1
Alex: Media Blasters is giving us this instead of Record of Lodoss War. Color me disappointed.

Finally, the picks of the week. Blaine says, “wait for a better week.” Alex says, “Normally I’d agree with Blaine on this – but Groucho Marx in the Mikado has to be at least worth a rental. I mean, it’s Groucho and Gilbert & Sullivan. Two great tastes that taste great togeather!”

One reply

  1. Curiously there are at least five films called Project X, including two in the last two years. One of those has not yet been released.

    Yeah, kind of a slow week– though I’m a little curious regarding what Groucho did with G&S.
