Another year, another Naruto movie on DVD. This time it’s based on Shippuden though, so everyone is a little older and a little wiser (well not really wiser…)
Shonen movies are always stuck in that loop of wanting to be ‘the big movie’ version of a show, and then having to reset to point zero at the end. Let’s see how the newest Naruto movie does.

Back again, and this time with a bloody treat, Blassreiter. One of the original simulcasts is finally getting a DVD release. After the show was given out for free, does the DVD deserve a place on your shelf?
Instead of my normal comment, a small warning. Look at the cover art. If the cover art makes you a bit creeped out, just consider… this is the American cover art. If this is what we get for the cover, imagine the content of the show itself… but for the rest of you, it may be a ride worth catching ( and aha!, fought the effort to make a motorcycle joke!)

Just a small update on what is going on with updates.
My main computer had it’s motherboard go poof. I’m in the midst of getting it replaced, but it’s gonna take awhile.
I’m going to try and do a review or two this weekend, but any extra stuff regarding the last contest will be delayed a bit (and if I do any Blu-ray reviews there won’t be screenshots.)
Thanks for being understanding, and hopefully when everything is back I’ll have some good news.
