Brian A Thomas’ Books and Movies Wishlist

Back to Wishlist Hub

So I’ve got a few books and Blu-ray‘s I’d love to have. I have separated the anime stuff I want to it’s own section from movies because they are so highly valued…

As of 25 September this is just a very rough draft. Most of these should now be on the Brian’s Books and Movies Wishlist from Amazon.


For Books I generally prefer the Kindle editions unless otherwise specified.


Generally when getting a movie, I prefer Blu-ray over DVD due to the fact I have a high definition TV and like to take advantage of it… Plus I really like Blu-ray anyhow…

  1. Farscape: Complete Series [Blu-ray] – Love… love… love this show. I might not wait for somebody to get me this one…
  2. True Detective – Season One [Blu-ray]
  3. Game of Thrones – Season 1 – 2 – 3 Box Set [Blu-ray] [2014]
  4. Firefly: The Complete Series [Blu-ray] – I already have this on DVD, but upgrading to Blu-ray would be nice.
  5. Almost Famous: The Bootleg Cut [Blu-ray] – One of my favorites and I still don’t have it on Blu-ray yet…
  6. Battlestar Galactica: The Complete Series [Blu-ray] – One of my favorite shows of all time.
  7. Star Wars: The Complete Saga (Episodes I-VI) [Blu-ray]
  8. The West Wing: The Complete Series Collection – Sadly not on Blu-ray yet.


Okay, so the Anime section get’s it’s on section from movies in general. I’m a huge fan of Anime, and would love to start building a good Blu-ray collection of select titles. These may not be exactly in order of most wanted to least, just a general list. Most of the movies here are for me, not the kids. At present, one of these are on my Amazon lists yet… I’ll add them later.

Before we get to list, we must first take care of

Studio Ghibli

That’s right one studio get’s it’s own sub section.

Grave of the Fireflies – This one I haven’t seen yet, but is my most wanted to see of their movies that I haven’t seen yet. Not sure how kid friendly it is due to subject matter. I’d add Barefoot Gen to the anime most wanted list as well, but that’s near impossible to find… This is a deep movie…
Princess Mononoke – Must Have amazing movie. Kid friendly.
Spirited Away – One of my favorite Studio Ghibli movies, sadly the link is for the DVD version as it doesn’t seem to be out on Blu-ray yet. I don’t have the DVD though… so it’ll do… Kid friendly.
My Neighbor Totoro – A classic finally on Blu-ray. Kid friendly.

Before we move on, the Neon Genesis and FMA lists below would probably go here…

Howl’s Moving Castle – Perhaps one of the weaker of the Studio Ghibli movies that I’ve seen, but still good enough to put on the list. Kid friendlyl.
Ponyo – Don’t let the cover fool you, this is no Finding Nemo… Kid friendly.
The Wind Rises – After Grave of the Fireflies, this is the next most wanted to see of the movies I haven’t seen yet. Should be somewhat kid friendly.
Kiki’s Delivery Service – Didn’t see yet, but want to. Should be kid friendly.
Wolf Children – Another one not seen yet, but comes highly recomended.
Castle in the Sky – Another not seen but highly recomended one.

Neon Genesis Evangelion

Neon Genesis is another section that get’s it’s own section… This may be a bit above lots of the Studio Ghibli stuff, but it isn’t super kid friendly and there needs to be some kid friendly stuff on my lists. I’ve got a good DVD set of the series, but I need the Rebuild and Blu-ray is the way to go for that.

Evangelion: 1.11 You Are {Not} Alone – The first of the Rebuild series…
Evangelion: 2.22 You Can {Not} Advance – The second of the Rebuild series
Evangelion 3.33: You Can {Not} Redo – The third of the Rebuild series.
Evangelion 4.44 isn’t out yet, even in theaters…

Full Metal Alchemist

This one is a bit hard… There’s the original series I love, and a rebuild of it’s own called Brotherhood, which follows the original Manga closely. For this list for now, it focuses on the Brotherhood release. Fun side note, the tattoo I’d want is from this series…

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood – Complete Collection One – Essential if this list is to be filled.
Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood – Complete Collection Two – Essential if this list is to be filled.
Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos – Didn’t see this…
Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood – OVA Collection – The OVAs would be a nice bonus to have and help flush things out.

The Rest of the Anime Most Wanted

So onto the rest of the most wanted Anime…

Akira: 25th Anniversary Edition – Must Have! Akira is one of the most profound movies ever, let alone anime movies… Not kid friendly. This is a hard R.
Ghost in the Shell 25th Anniversary – Another Must Have. Another not kid friendly hard R. There are a number of sequal/prequal movies with Stand Alone Complex in the title I’d like to have as well, but this is the true must have. I’ll sub divide details about Stand Alone Complex at a later date, but for now the main movie is the focus.
Attack on Titan, Part 1 and Attack on Titan, Part 2 – An amazing series… not kid friendly… there’s a bit of a trend in the non Studio Ghibli stuff…
Things that may be added to the list… Just search Amazon for them… Death Note, Sword Art Online, .hack//Sign (I’m leaning to the SAO more than .hack at the moment though if only as I’ve seen SAO), the Macross stuff, Last Exile, Hikaru No Go.
