Anime Releases 10/27

Here are the releases for today (10/27) at your local Video, Book Stores or the infamous Amazon website in the US. I only review Movies and Box Sets that are coming out as this will get the most bang for your buck. I did "borrow" the summaries from various sites so you can get a brief review of the story.

This kind of a quiet week for sets. My only personal choice is for Shonen Onmyouji Complete Series as I have been watching this. I find the connection between son, father and grandfather a nice one. They all get along and interact well with one another - most of the time. I tried to watch Boogiepop Phantom, but jumped off the train after 4 episodes. The yuri overtones at times is what got me interested, but did not get into it after watching it. I have not catched it yet, but Claymore may be of interest to me. Will have to check out a couple episodes before deciding.

There were 3 adult animes that came out as well: Wife-Swap Diaries, Nurse Me! and Sibling Secret (I think this is a re-release from 2004).

Anthing here on your list of buys this week?


Boogiepop Phantom/Boogiepop and Others Collection
The complete 12-episode TV series, plus the live-action film that serves as its prequel! ive years ago, a string of grisly murders shook the city to its core. Now terror has returned, and this time it has a name: Boogiepop. Everyone knows about Boogiepop: death incarnate, she stalks the night in search of fresh victims. Meet her, and you simply... vanish.

Claymore Complete Collection
A brutal scourge stalks the land. Yoma, monsters driven by a hunger satisfied by only one quarry: Humanity. The dark breed knows but a singular foe: Claymore. Human-Yoma hybrids of extraordinary strength and cunning, the Claymores roam from skirmish to skirmish delivering salvation by the edge of a blade. Thus begins the twisting tale of Clare, one such sister of the sword driven by pain in both victory and defeat.

Little Snow Fairy Sugar Complete Collection 1
Season Fairies create and control the weather using special musical instruments. They make the wind blow, the snow fall, the sun shine; if it's something weather related, they are the ones who make it happen. Sugar, an apprentice Snow Fairy, and her friends Salt and Pepper, all want to become full-fledged Season Fairies, and the only way to achieve this is to search for and find the "Twinkles" that will make their magical flowers bloom.

Popotan Complete Collection
Three sisters journey through time and space in search of the one man who can answer the riddle of their existence. The girls make many new friends along the way, always leaving a smile in their wake.

Shonen Onmyouji Complete Series
Abeno Masahiro is the grandson of the great sorcerer Abeno Seimei. Unfortunately for him, his grandfather did such a great job in the past, he really hasn't had a need to perform any magical duties and as a result, Masahiro lost his sixth sense and the ability to see spirits. One day, a demon drops from the sky and proclaims that Masahiro must continue his grandfather's work and learn to be an Onmyouji regardless of the dangers that await him!

  1. among the animes, the one that i really like is Claymore. the concept and battle scene is great! but you have to read the manga if u want to know the story after the anime :)

    seems like u bought a lot of dvds and figurines lately O__O

  2. When they are literaly giving stuff away, how can you say no! Never know, it might end up all on eBay again some time down the road.
