    Anime Review Roundup

    All the Anime’s Cowboy Bebop Disc Replacement Program

    Last year, the most keenly awaited anime release of them all was the Cowboy Bebop Blu-ray release. And as is the way, it’s the release that we most wanted to be perfect. You can bet that a couple of glitched frames caused the most ardent of Cowboy Bebop perfectionists to utter a sigh of deflation. To their credit, All the Anime promised a disc replacement program for OCD fans for whom three glitches are three glitches too many. Now that the budget, complete collection of Cowboy Bebop on Blu-ray is imminent, that also signals the advent of the replacement program. Click over to All the Anime’s blog post to see more details on how to get your replacement discs. And, yes! I’m an OCD Cowboy Bebop fan. Anime-holics Anonymous!

    Get Hyped About Gargantia

    Next week sees the release of Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet, and to get fans in the mood, Manga Entertainment have unleashed a set of Youtube clips from the show. But first, the synopsis...

    From Production IG (Psycho Pass, Blood The Last Vampire, Ghost in the Shell) and the Creator of Madoka Magica and Fate/Zero comes an action-packed sci-fi adventure like you've never seen before. While fighting an intense inter-galactic war, a mecha pilot was accidentally warped into a space-time neither he nor the computer of his mecha could recognize. After waking up from a long-time hibernation, he found himself trapped on a planet, with human residents talking in an unknown form of language, using inferior technologies, and – most shocking to him – naturally breathable air...

    And now the clips...

    Look forward to a review on this site soon...

    It’s been a week of Manga Entertainment reviews, and I’m still playing catch-up for most of them. First up to the plate was the review of Karneval: The Complete Series, a show about a circus. No clowns in this one though, as The Circus, as presented in Karneval is a government agency tasked with dealing with those crimes for which conventional means are useless. When the criminal Kafka group is mutating people into monsters, it’s useful that the members of Circus have superpowers of their own. Things get complicated when on one of their missions, they rescue a cute naive boy, and a petty thief. Read more about Karneval by clicking on the review.

    What can I possibly say about Bleach Series 14 Part 1 that I haven’t said about any of the other parts? It’s one step closer to the end of the series! Ichigo is still waving that unfeasibly large sword around, Aizen is still plotting to take over the universe, and episode spanning battles continue to occur. What’s new in this collection is that Ichigo finds out something about his dad that the audience has known for several boxsets now.

    Next up was the biggest anime release of the year... probably. We’re talking about Attack on Titan of course, that ‘once in a decade’ show that comes along and breaks out of its genre, breaks out of the medium, and attracts fans who’ve never even hear of anime before. If you need to know about this epic tale of the remnants of humanity, battling against the ever encroaching Titan menace, giant humanoid forms who exist only to devour humans, then you’ve probably been hiding under the same rock that I was last year when it streamed on Crunchyroll. Click on the review of Attack on Titan: Part 1 - Collector’s Edition, to see just why this deserves to be the biggest release of the year, and also to see why it turns out not to be.

    And finally a little live action silliness adapted from a manga to complete the week of Manga reviews. HK Forbidden Superhero is about a boy who turns into a superhero whenever he puts a pair of panties on his head. Enter buff masked hero in mankini and fishnet tights who puts paid to his enemies by rubbing their faces in his prodigious crotch. That works until he meets a villain who’s even more perverted than he is!

    As I said, it’s all Manga Entertainment. Karneval was released on Blu-ray and DVD on the 8th of September. Bleach Series 14 Part 1 comes out today on DVD. Attack on Titan: Part 1 came out on Blu-ray, DVD, and Blu-ray Collector’s Edition last Monday, as did HK Forbidden Superhero on Blu-ray and DVD.
