5.0 out of 5 stars excellently cheap, 16 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
i purchased these track bottoms to replace my very old joggers and I was suitably amazed when they arrived just 2 days after buying. I always buy larger than I need as I like comfort and the range of movement I get with a slightly bigger size. The material is a lovely velvety cotton, smooth and warm to the touch and very comfortable indeed. The quality of the make is excellent for the price and best of all is the pockets are ZIPPED!!!. I shall certainly be purchasing other items from this company over the coming months. IMO worth every penny

5.0 out of 5 stars Actually very good, 12 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I first heard about Hell Girl when looking around places such as Drama crazy and mysoju (no longer working) so looked for the same in the Anime. There a several stories all revolving around the subject of revenge and a judgement that fits the "crime" or circumstances. The Hell Girl website only appears at midnight and when you type in your grievance you get a visit from Ai Enmi (Hell Girl) who actually lives in Hell, (well when the one requesting help is transported to see Ai the place is all in Red) Hell Girl lives with her grandmother who sets out her Kimono so she can travel.

Hell Girl has three other companions who help her bring justice to the Victim who contacted her, a sort of Granddad figure and a tall long haired pretty boy and a totally gorgeous woman I would give my soul to Hell Girl just for a date with her totally hot companion .

Ai gives the victim who wishes retribution on her/his tormentor a what appears to be a straw doll with a red thread tied around it's neck and when it is untied they enter a covenant with Hell Girl.

I will end the review here as to continue will spoil it for others who want to see this series. Some reviewers have said the stories are repetitive but I tend to take each one as a separate story and just go with it. I love the song at the start an the end too and the stories are all very well thought out and I actually like Hell Girl, I would love to be her friend, she is so sweet but so lethal as she takes the tormentors straight to Hell. Highest recommendation from me is go get the whole series and enjoy

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't bother, 12 Aug 2013

This review is from: Noir - Vol. 1 [2003] [DVD] (DVD)
I must start this with an apology to all those who like Dubbed anime. I speak Japanese well enough to understand what is being said and when this series arrived i looked for just Japanese language in the set up menu but could not find it and the set up just would not let me set the Japanese with English subtitles either so I tried watching with just the English and found it irritating beyond belief. Sorry for being snobbish but I hate it when a foreign film,TV series or Drama is dubbed in to American accents when you know the the actors in the film etc. are actually speaking their own native language.

After an hour or so of trying to get the set up menu to actually work i lost my temper and destroyed the DVD and threw it in the bin. I am writing this review to highlight to other possible purchasers that the set up may not work for you so it's buyer beware.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent starter, 12 Aug 2013

This review is from: Green Smoothie Bible (Paperback)
As a Diabetic who's getting very concerned with the levels of sugar in all sorts of food I have been very seriously looking into Green Smoothies and a totally Raw Vegan lifestyle. As i am totally new and don't have clue I saw this book with 300 recipes included so I purchased it and I can certainly say it is so very well written in nice compact precise sections that tell you all you need to know about certain fruits Vegetables and other supplements such as Spirulina and Wheat-grass with the nutrient values and other health benefits. Written by a very knowledgeable person who has obviously studies her subject in depth she explains how food is used and broken down by the body and why most of our food is destroyed before the body can use the nutrients contained in the food.

Some of the ingredients are the American name for vegetables (Kale for example) but it's easy to look up the English equivalent. I really like how very easy it is to make the recipes as they are only a few items such as Apple and Banana with Lettuce with milled Peanuts etc. There is also a very very good website based in England that sell everything very cheap (Vitalhealtheurope) making the very healthy Green Smoothie diet the best diet around. I have no hesitation in recommending this book to anyone serious about changing their lifestyle for the better. Basically the only book you will ever need IMO

5.0 out of 5 stars crammed full of ideas, 7 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased this for my wife some time ago and she loves it. The book is lavishly packed with colour photos and in-depth information on the equipment you need to design your own or stitch from a pattern with detailed information on what type of cottons to use and colour photos of what shade to look for. Also give a near forensic level of detail of what types of stitches there are and just how to use to enhance your craft. Also included is a great deal of information for using the Black Work technique. A very very highly recommended book

5.0 out of 5 stars Kick ass heroine, 13 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Set in a future Japan that is rife with corruption and crime and choking pollution the Government attempts to control the situation by forming the Tank police. Leona Ozaki the leader and her modified tank Bonaparte head a squad that is totally undisciplined set out to keep law and order in their own hilarious way. Their main aim is to destroy the insidious Dai Nippon Gaiken Corporation from flooding the streets with a new virtual drug. Their attempts to bring the ringleader to justice are so funny and I just love the kick ass attitude of Leona and her long suffering boss the way she is so tough and bolshie crease me up. I love this series and the author of the original Manga, Masamune Shirow (who also created Ghost in the shell and Appleseed) worked on this series personally so it stayed loyal to the original.

A must have for all Anime fans collections

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as naughty as it appears, 13 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dasepo Naughty Girls [DVD] (DVD)
A difficult film to quantify as a comedy or anythings else as the title is a misnomer. A weird film from Korea about what at first appears to be a delinquents school which you would think is full of sex mad teens with transgender issues and SDI's but this is wrong and after a few minutes it delves into Koreas problems with poverty etc and then revolves around a young girl who is poor and has this "thing" attached to her back called "poverty" who makes money for her mother by "sleeping" with older ment but this is nowhere near what you would think as it is all to do with misdirection. Basically the story you read on the back of the cover bears very little resemblance to the actual film but is still worth the watch. Three stars as it is bizarre with some laugh out loud moments

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure fun escapism, 13 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This anime is about a young girl ( named Nina Sakura) who comes from the magical kingdom as a transfer student to be educated in the human world and she strikes up a friendship with a human girl (Ayu Tateishi) the uber cool tennis star who has a crush on her schoolmate.(tetsushi Kaji). The stories revolve around how Nina tries and often fails hilariously to help her friend in her quest to capture her crush's heart. Only 4 episodes but such light hearted fun for all the family or collectors of anime everywhere. The only niggle I have is to see all the other episodes you will have to watch online on another anime web site as I can't find the other episodes on DVD which is a shame

5.0 out of 5 stars incredible, 12 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased these to phone my relatives abroad as I am trying to cut down on my landline and wanted to try to call over the internet,something I have never done before. I saw these headphones and thought "cheap" but not having too much disposable income I gave it a go and WOW!!! am I happy I went for these. They arrived yesterday (11/04/2013, I ordered them the Saturday before) in a very secure well packaged box and inside was the actual box containing the 'phones. They are exactly as described for the colour and they are incredibly comfortable. The only "niggle" was the foam covering the microphone but this was dispelled when I spoke to my relative and she said I was as clear as day with no drop out or cutting out which sold me on these headphones instantly

I phoned my relative abroad and this is going to sound strange but when they answered it was as though they were inside my head these 'phones were so clear and the sound quality superb, no dropped call or "crackle or hiss" of the carrier wave you usually get with a hand held phone when phoning abroad IMO. After a little while I even forgot I had them on they were so comfortable. I have also used these to listen to music and I am totally in awe of these headphones. Don't be put off about the price as they are without a doubt far superior in build and sound quality than other makes at much higher price. Fantastic value and a MUST HAVE purchase if your looking for excellence and quality sound.

I got this as I don't know how to sew a torn zip without making a pig's ear of it so though this product would be the answer and save me some cash too anyway, it arrived and I used it per instructions but it is basically a waste of time as it did not stick anything. Needless to say it is now in the drawer and will not be used again
