Anime Releases 10/20

Here are the releases for today (10/20) 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.

Well besides the Transformer being released today as well. there are some good Anime's joining the fields this week.One I had not heard of was Blassreiter and I had to check it out. I managed to watch a couple of the episodes and think it may be a keeper (B Rating). I will be doing a full review later this week.

Other cool Anime are some Escaflowne ( Movie and Vision of) and Comic Party Revolution. Also this week there is Discode 1.2.3 (Adults Only) and a nice Cat-Boy series called Loveless. It is an interesting mix this week with Clannad and Comic Party Revolution as well. I am sure there is something here for just about anyone this week!

Anything from the list below a possible purchase this week?

A blood-born plague races across Germany, giving life to mechanized monsters who are hell-bent on making a bloody mess out of anyone in their path. Known as Demoniacs, these creatures have the perverse ability to meld with technology and wield it as an extension of their uncontrollable cyber rage. Standing in their way is civilization's last hope for a savior.

Clannad After Story Collection1
The first half of the story takes place primarily at a high school in Japan, which is the best school in the city. Outside of the school, frequented locations include the bakery run by Nagisa's parents, and the dormitory where Youhei Sunohara lives. Throughout the story, glimpses into an Illusionary World are shown. This world is devoid of all life except for a young girl, though she later makes a body out of junk pieces through which the player can interact with her.

Comic Party Revolution Complete Collection
Kazuki, Taishi, and all their crazy cohorts are back and getting into all kinds of misadventures. Manga and madness abound as these college students navigate the otaku subculture of doujinshi. Life is a joke for this crew, but not every day can be a Comic Party. A break in the laughter spells trouble, and this gang of chuckle-heads passes the time with some hot springs action, a whacked out tennis tournament, and a camping trip that ends in a deadly duel!

Discode 1.2.3
Going through life is hard enough for a coed at her sexual peak in an academy full of horny boys, but it's even harder when she's got horny boy parts of her own. Miss Futaba finds it hard to sit quietly in class when something down there keeps her too distracted to think straight.

Escaflowne the Movie (Blu-ray)
Hitomi Kanzaki is tired of life. Depressed and despondent, she wishes that she could just fade away, to make the pain of living stop hurting. Her pain resonates with another on the world of Gaia, and when her wish is granted, she fi nds herself in a strange land. She is greeted as the legendary Wing Goddess, with the power to summon the legendary Escaflowne.

Ghost Hound Complete Collection 1
The series is set in the modest town of Suiten, located in a remote mountain region in the island of Kyūshū, and follows three boys who have each had traumatic encounters in their childhood and learn to transfer their souls into a parallel world known as the "Unseen World". The Unseen World is however undergoing a change, with its ghosts starting to appear in the real world, which is therefore also being subject to changes.

Loveless Complete Slim

  1. I did not know that Escaflowne was out on Blu-ray but its a must get for me such a great movie

  2. My versions of Escaflowne lost most of the subs about two-thirds in, so we had to switch to dubbed. I think it may be boot-legged DVD, heh.
    The dubbing is not half-bad, at least.

    Never watched the film.

    Hm, Loveless, isn't it shonen-ai?

    And LOL at Discode, and not in a good way :D
