    Anime Review Roundup

    Animatsu Put Up Trailer for Nadia: The Secret of the Blue Water

    This classic series came as something of a surprise when Animatsu announced its release on DVD and Blu-ray, but last week they put the trailer online, and to my surprise it looks like just the sort of thing that got me into anime in the first place.

    Take a look and be inspired.

    The Spring Streaming Season Gets Under Way

    We still get precious few titles streaming exclusively for UK audiences from local sites; most of our online streaming comes from services with global reach such as Crunchyroll and Daisuki. But with the advent of sites like Animax and Viewster, the balance is beginning to shift. This week Anime Limited announced two new licenses which they have confirmed for streaming.

    The first is Seraph of the End, a post-apocalyptic vampire anime...

    About Seraph of the End

    After an unknown virus wiped out all adults on earth, vampires appeared and ruled over the surviving children, treating them like livestock. Yuichiro Hyakuya survived along with other orphans by giving their blood to vampires, until Yuichiro escaped four years ago. Now he is a member of the Moon Demon Company, a unit in the Japanese army dedicated to hunting down the vampires he blames for the death of his family.

    The second is The Heroic Legend of Arslan, which is a remake of a story which originally came to the UK with the less snicker inducing name of The Heroic Legend of Arislan, way back in the days of Manga Video. This remake will begin simulcasting in April, just as with Seraph of the End.

    About The Heroic Legend of Arslan

    In the prosperous kingdom of Pars lies the Royal Capital of Ecbatana, a city of splendor and wonder, ruled by the undefeated and fearsome King Andragoras. Arslan is the young and curious prince of Pars who, despite his best efforts, doesn’t seem to have what it takes to be a proper king like his father.

    At the age of 14, Arslan goes to his first battle and loses everything as the blood-soaked mists of war give way to scorching flames, bringing him to face the demise of his once glorious kingdom. However, it is Arslan’s destiny to be a ruler, and despite the trials that face him, he must now embark on a journey to reclaim his fallen kingdom.

    Just one review last week, as I commence a double dip journey through the world of K-On!, as I finally indulge in a little importing, and upgrade the series to Blu-ray. It’s the classic tale of cute girls doing cute things with guitars, a synthesiser and a drum kit, and it’s one of my favourite shows to unwind to. The real question is whether it makes the most of the HD upgrade. Given what I’d heard about the audio of the first season Blu-rays I wasn’t expecting much. Click on the review of K-On! Volume 1 to see what I found.

    Madman Entertainment released K-On! Volume 1 on Blu-ray in Australia back in 2011. It’s available on DVD in the UK from Manga Entertainment.
