Voyager Entertainment Doesn’t Care

Posted on 14 October 2014 by VinnieAve



So if you follow me on Twitter, you may remember me losing a bit of shit over having my Star Blazers 2199 vol 4 BluRay having issues with skipping. As part of this I used the starblazers.com contact form to ask for help.

I sent this message:
So I just finished up watching StarBlazers 2199 vol 4 but my disc was skipping. Is this an authoring issue?

Now there are obvious issues with this message but it wasn’t until today, 2 weeks later, I received a response.

Thank you for your contact. I’m sorry late reply.

Sorry We have stopped selling Discs and postponed selling vol.5 and 6.

If we start, we will announce on our Facebook and web site.

Star Blazers Customers service

This is the most useless response I have given. They essentially said they are not doing anything current, and then reminded me that they have delayed the final 2 volumes. Really they just don’t care about what is going on or their customers. They didn’t ask any follow up questions or say who would be able to help. I want to support this release but I really don’t know anymore, I love this show but this makes it hard. Thanks for reading my rant and letting me vent. Also the issue came down it possibly being related to my Blu-ray player, the disc has worked on other players.

Determine DM’s Fate

Posted on 15 January 2013 by VinnieAve

So for 2013 I will be pick works that feature elements of space. While some of what I picked last year included space travel, this year I want to do a bit of a survey of space. To start this year off right I want to give you our readers and listeners a chance to choose what DM will be subjected to watching. To start off the first 3 choices are

  • Star Blazers Season 1- The classic anime that started American anime fandom, and still holds a place the hearts of men.
  • Cosmos: A Personal Voyage – The classic documentary series by Carl Sagan that inspired so many to go into science.
  • Cowboy Bebop- Possibly the best anime from the 1990s or all time depending on who you talk to

Just leave a comment to vote, also please be honest, don’t vote more than once. You have until I finish reading It.

Hurry Star Force! There are only 148 to Release a Good Yamato Film!

Posted on 11 November 2011 by VinnieAve

It seems I only appear when I have an odd rant at 1Am or when an anime movie trailer pops up. So, since its not 1 Am, there must have been an anime trailer released recently. Back in the summer I reported that Yamato was getting a remake next year, and today the trailer hit YouTube:

Wow, that was a surprising dull minute lost, sorry about that. This is the 3rd Yamato film to be release in recent years and I have seen none of them, just being honest about that. This is supposed to be a remake of the first season of Space Battleship Yamato (released in America as Star Blazers). I’m not surprised they made a dull trailer but I hope that it leads to a film that both retells the original story and is capable of being safely watched by new fans (no plot holes, no excess of references, etc.), my fear is that this film will only be watched by old fans who already know the work. It’s odd that all the character designs have been revamped (not completely changed, they look like old style designs that were done recently, all the characters look like the characters but have some updates) but the tech looks exactly the same, I know the Yamato is unchangable (not complaining) but I’m surprised the other stuff still looks the same, I had hoped they could have gone the route Star Trek took and did a fuller style update while still keeping the franchise right at the core.
