Anime Releases for 10/06

Here are the releases for today (10/06) 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.

WOW -Another great week for those collecting - unless your budgets are tanked! This is especially a great week for us old timers that remember Astro Boy and Kimba. Astro Boy has several mini sets being released while Kimba has one currently. I know I will have to get Kimba set for my son.

I have seen both Rahxephon and Mushi-Shi. Both great series from 2 totally different times. Rahxephon is of the future with lots of Mecha, while Mushi-Shi is more of a tale from the past. Both have equally great story telling and exceptional artwork.

 Astro Boy Mini Sets 1 & 2
In a future where science fiction is reality, Dr. Boynton creates a super-robot in his deceased son's image. Named Astro Boy, the robot can swim oceans, leap over mountains and even fly into space, but he can't replace the doctor's son. Abandoned and disowned, soon Astro Boy is befriended by Dr. Packadermus J. Elefun of the Institute of Science, and together, they embark upon an amazing adventure. With super strength, rocket-powered flight, a selfless heart and a kind demeanor, Astro Boy fights a never-ending crusade against the forces of evil!

His My Master Complete Collection
Yoshitaka Nakabayashi, a 14-year-old millionaire who got this huge inheritance after his parents died in an accident, found himself needed to be taken care of and tried to hire live-in maids to do the job. Two runaway girls, Izumi Sawatari and her younger sister Mitsuki, stumped into Nakabayashi's mansion and got hired by Yoshitaka immediately, for Yoshitaka is not only a rich boy but also a pervert with uniform fetishes, who wants to be addressed as goshujin-sama (master).

Kimba: The White Lion Mini Set 1
Kimba's enchanting adventures of friendship, jungle survival and harmony return. Ready to be introduced to a whole new generation of fans! Join Kimba along with his pals Pauly the Parrot, Daniel Baboon, and a charming assortment of other loveable characters, as he follows in the footsteps of his late father, the great lion king, making the jungle a safer, better place for everyone to live.

Mushi-Shi Complete Collection (Viridian Collection)
Between this world and the next, there is a point where it becomes impossible to distinguish between plant and animal, between life and death. It is a place man was never meant to tread... This is where you will find the mushi. Neither good nor evil, they are life in its purest form. An unseen river reshaping the path of man, through their very presence we are changed.

Otoboku Complete
Mizuho, a young man from a well-off family, is told that his grandfather's last wish is that he attend his mother's high school. Such a mundane request would ordinarily not bother Mizuho, but unfortunately, his mother's alma mater is an exclusive academy for young ladies. With the help of his childhood friend Mariya, he manages to convincingly disguise himself as the fairer sex, but will he be able to keep up the act until he manages to graduate?

Rahxephon Complete Collection (2009)
The city of Tokyo has been overthrown, taken over by Invaders who have devastated the rest of the planet. For 15 years, the remnants of the human race have fought a losing battle against the Mu and their Dolem, knowing that the key to victory lies within the domed walls of Tokyo Jupiter, where time flows in a different path and none of the mind-wiped citizens even know that the city has been conquered. But no one has been able to get into Tokyo. Until now.

Story of Saiunkoku Season 1 Collection
Saiunkoku is a country with eight powerful houses governed by one emperor. However, the new leader Ryuki cares not for his new role and is rumored to spend his days chasing after noblemen in his court. Enter Shurei, a princess whose family has fallen upon hard times. Her dreams of becoming a government official are unattainable since she is a woman, but a twist of fate gives her the chance of a lifetime.

Toward the Terra Complete Collection (Anime Legends Edition)
Jomy, a young man fast approaching his fourteenth birthday, stands at the brink of his adult life. On the day of his adulthood exam, his mind races with the remnants of dreams that haunt him in the dead of sleep. Mu, a word unheard amongst the denizens of the human systems, plays upon his lips. Abilities previously unknown soon manifest within, and Jomy's race towards adulthood becomes frenzied fleeing from the powers that be and toward the Terra.

  1. Isn't it "He's My Master"?

    I watched RahXephon last month, it was ok, but far from phenomenal. If I were given the option to edit the series, I prolly could have made it much stronger. A lot of dross that detracts from what IS worthy.

    Mushi-shi I need to watch one day. I got it when I was getting 5 series a week, so I only watched the first two episodes. I really need to. This, and Planetes, and GitS:SAC, and maybe watch Gurren Lagann again, cause I've been in the mood lately. Damn school picking up again in a week and a half!
