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. JD DeLuzio says:

    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.
