Evangelion returns. After a long wait (and avoiding the DVD version to wait for the Blu-ray for many people, myself included) the first of the new Evangelion films has made it to Blu-ray in the USA.

Eureka Seven is back… in movie form. Eureka Seven: Good Night, Sleep Tight, Young Lovers (long enough title I think) is a new adventure with Renton, Eureka, and the crew of the Gekko.

Back on a new computer with a new review. This time we have Gonzo popping up with the story of a boy and a mech (a story no anime fan has ever heard before…)

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?

The second Bleach movie is getting it’s American release almost a year after the first. This time around the movie sticks it’s focus on a known character.

Wow, it’s been a long trek to get this on DVD. It’s kinda ironic that the last bit of all the original Dragon Ball/Z/GT related animations we finally get uncut are the first few episodes of the series (not including the 2008 special or Kai in that, purely all the originally released stuff.)

Digimon in the USA has always had an odd history. Never quite getting a real release for any of it’s seasons on DVD (minus a single DVD for the first season released nearly a decade ago that had over 10 episodes stuffed onto it and the first three films in their ‘edited into one film for the USA’ version on a different DVD) Well Go USA has teamed up with Toei USA to bring boxsets of the newest season to the USA.

Wow, we already have an American anime Blu-ray getting a double dip (well mostly anyways). Here we are again with yet another Broly Blu-ray. The original ‘prototype’ Blu-ray disk had quite a few problems.

It’s time for one of the bigger, if not the biggest early review I’ve done, Akira. Akira is one of the biggest, if not THE biggest anime as far as us over here in the USA are often concerned with. Over the years with more and more big name releases it may get a bit more bogged down when it comes to discussions of the biggest things ever, but for anyone who got into anime years ago, Akira is the big shadow in the room.

Time for another early look. I’m a big Ken Akamatsu fan, so I’ve been looking forward to more Negima for awhile. The new series is interesting (yes it’s a new series, put Season 2 up there because it is still vaguely known as that to most people).
Let’s take a look at this reimagination, see what works, and see what doesn’t.
