Comments Anime TV series (originally aired in English on Amazon Prime), adapting a manga from the creator of Planetes about the Viking invasions of England, leading up to the start of the ascention of King Canute.

Finally, the picks of the week. Alex says, “On the anime side of things, I’m definitely going with Vinland Saga. It was very well done show, both in terms of writing and animation, and should have gotten more attention. The fact that it also now has a dub should make it more accessible for people who have difficulty juggling action and subtitles. Otherwise, if you have the ability to play 4K disks, I’m going to go with recomending the 4K release of David Lynch’s Dune.” Blaine says, “I can also recommend Dune, and not much else.”

    I didn’t realize In The Heights had already come out. I saw it on stage years ago and it’s a blast. I’ll be checking out the film version.
