I’ve mentioned in previous reviews of kids shows that my love for Madman is deeply rooted in the release of my favourite childhood shows (Samurai Pizza Cats, Sailor Moon, Johnny Bravo etc).

For those of you who haven’t a clue who or what Clarence is check out my  volume one review. Clarence is a Cartoon Network show that is a neat throw back to 90s cartoons  such asHey Arthur, Ed Edd n Eddy, Rugrats etc. It’s a little less hip and more littleRead More →

Around the mid 2000s Anime started getting really big. Emos liked it and nerds liked it, all of a sudden it was everywhere. I didn’t get this new phenomenon. Why now? I wasn’t ready to spend my money on anything but everything coming out on DVD from various companies andRead More →

It’s official, Madman is my favourite DVD company. Ever. Criterion is too conneisuer and overpriced, Umbrella have ugly cover art and don’t know how to spell check and Madman never let me down. Arthouse releases, documentaries and horror not to mention releasing those out of print/forgotten about gems.  I declaredRead More →

Usavich (created by Kanaban Graphics for MTV Asia) is an animated short-film series about two rabbits (Putin and Kirenenko) and their adventures in a Russian Gulag. Tagging alongside the rabbits are a transvestite/hermaphrodite? chick (a chicken that makes the most disturbing noise) and Leningrad the frog who eats and poopsRead More →

Most people have heard of Adventure Time by now, but if you happen to be one of the willfully ignorant it’s a much-hyped animated series that airs on Cartoon Network.
