Anime Review Roundup
Invaders of the Rokujyoma!?, this time on Blu-ray. Sometimes a second viewing offers a chance to re-evaluate a show and get a new perspective. That very rarely happens with a harem rom-com, and this was no exception. The hapless teen male™ protagonist gets a room in a dorm coveted by a variety of otherworldly girls. They were about to fight to death, but the landlady threatens violence if they wreck her property, so they wind up playing a series of games instead to see who will take over the room. It sounds good, but Invaders of the Rokujyoma!? isn’t a show that can hold onto its premise. It’s watchable and fun enough though.

Maybe that mediocrity of title is warranted though, as the film itself, a tale about a hunter girl moving to the capital during the Tokugawa Shogunate, to hunt dog-human hybrids, doesn’t quite match the sensationalism of its premise. It turns into a somewhat goofy romantic comedy, albeit with some moments of brutality and gore. Here’s my review. Anime Limited released Fuse on Collector’s Edition Blu-ray and standard DVD in 2016. You’ll have your work cut out looking for the CE, but Anime Limited released the standard Blu-ray of Fusé: Memoirs of a Hunter Girl on the 17th of January, 2 weeks ago.
MVM released Invaders of the Rokujyoma!? on Blu-ray and on DVD in 2017.
