Anime Review Roundup
Sengoku Basara: Samurai Kings comes in. It's set during the Warring States Era of Japan's history, but you don't need to know that. All you need to know is that it has over the top characters, with ridiculous special moves, getting into over the top fight sequences. All you need to know is if you'll be watching it with a dumb grin on your face. Click on my review to see just how dumb!
Blade of the Immortal: Volume 2. Although it turns out that immortality is overrated, and there's more than one get out clause. Volume 1 had a hard time convincing me of its worth, and I must admit that at the end of those first five episodes, I wasn't sold. The next four episodes are in this volume, taking us past the halfway point in the series, and if the story of an immortal man seeking redemption by killing 1000 evil men, and a young girl seeking to avenge her murdered parents, doesn't convince me by this point, I wouldn't hold out much hope for the final volume.

The Secret of Kells. David Beckett has reviewed the Blu-ray release, and you can see how the adaptation of Celtic mythology fared in his review.
