Finally, the picks of the week. Alex says, “A Silent Voice was one of the anime films where, when it came out, people were hoping it would get nominated for an Academy Award, so I’ve been meaning to get around to it for quite some time. On the non-anime front, I’m going with the Colin Baker Season 1 collection.” Blaine says, “I can also recommend the Doctor Who set, as well as the Rankin/Bass collection.”

One reply

  1. I was going to try to see “Gothic Fantastic Four,” until I realized I’d misread.
