Like this web site?
Want to buy it?
I created www.cartoongallery.com.au in 1996 and it remains one of the top anime sites in Australia since then (put in some key words in Google Australia like "anime", "anime in Australia", "anime DVDs" and you'll see what I mean). I'm looking to sell this site. Why? Because my heart just isn't into it anymore.
After all these years, I feel that I need to move on to new challenges and hopefully this web site will find a new owner who can put in the time and passion to really make it grow.
Are you interested?
Here's the deal:
- I will pass ownership of the URL http://www.cartoongallery.com.au to you
- you will own the full functionality of the web site. I will introduce you to the host of this site - Netreach, based in Victoria, Australia - and you will have full access to all sections of the site.
- I will remove myself as the Super Administrator of this site and you will assume that role.
- You will have full access to the customer databases.
- From the date of purchase, you will assume full responsibility for the site, including hosting fees.
- There will be no debts owing from the date of purchase, either from the host or from customers.
- The purchase price does not include any stock. What stock I have I will try to sell through EBay or other outlets.
- I'm asking for $5,000.00 Australian dollars.
Another "old school" movie, another good story, decent characters, plenty of action and classic art makes this a worthwhile watch. Some may say that this instalment is not "official" Macross canon (including Wikipedia), but I don't really care. There are many hints and references back to the original Macross saga that get picked up here in Macross II, so if it isn't canon it is a pretty good spin-off for an alternate universe. To be fair, I couldn't call this a "movie" as it really tops-and-tails the six OVA episodes by taking out the start/end credits and episode previews/reviews. This may make for some jarring transitions between episodes, but doesn't upset the overall flow of the show.

This collection brings together the final part of the series in episodes 40 to 51. Arachne has now unleashed the Kishin madness virus which could overtake the world in five days! After cutting a deal with Medusa the DWMA has been dispatched to try and stop the spread. Maka is having a crisis of confidence early on and, unsure of her abilities, becomes despondent and distrustful. The drama ramps up several notches and people get injured badly. Death turns his city into a robot, as does Arachne.

Collection 1 was a surprise for good reason, and I was looking forward to see if Collection 2 keeps up the standard. Does it ever, and it exceeded my expectations by a long shot. We have a new bunch of escaped criminals related with the release of the Ryunka virus from Collection 1. We have a new childhood friend for Birdy, Nataru, who has a secret of his own. We get a lot more back-story to Birdy, her childhood, early training, and lead-up to several significant events that were alluded to in Collection 1. This means a rollicking good story with plenty of action.

Too hot for eBay!
As I was sorting through items for listing on eBay, I came across some adult product which I couldn't put there. Here is a list of those anime products. Please be aware that you must be over 18 years of age to order any of these items from me! I only have one of each of these. They are available now for immediate delivery.
I've been buying from The Cartoon Gallery since 2000. Always great to deal with.
I have been a customer of The Cartoon Gallery for 5 years. They have always been reliable and efficient with the delivery of their products.
I've been a client of Michael's since sometime in the 1990s. He is totally honest and reliable. A delight!
I have been dealing with Michael for over 10 years. I have lost count how many DVDs I have bought off him. I have certainly bought many hundreds of Anime DVDs over that time and have always been very happy with the service I have received. Michael has always set his prices at a reasonable level and has always delivered in a prompt and timely fashion. Michael always hand wraps all his parcels and uses plenty of bubble wrap to make sure that the DVDs arrive safe and sound.
One good thing about Michael is that he will always order anime DVDs that are not listed on his site. Over the years I have ordered many, many anime DVDs that were not listed on the site. Michael has always gone out of his way to get the DVDs for me, even though they weren't listed. I have always been very impressed with the personal style of service that Michael always delivers. Needless to say, I will continue to order DVDs from Michael for many years to come.
Blu-ray anime DVDs
For those of you into the latest and greatest technology, here's a list of anime available on Blu-ray in the US and Australia. I will be updating this list about every two months to try to keep it current (last updated May 26, 2011).
Oz anime permanent price reductions!
The good folks at Madman have announced some permanent price reductions on selected Australian anime titles. Sure, these ones have been around for a while, but saving some money is a good thing, right
