The Testament of Sister New Devil BURST

Published by:

Testament of Sister New Devil BURST is the 2nd season of Testament of Sister New Devil. It’s just as raunchy, ecchi and obscene as the first but truncated into 10 episodes.

Everything that transpired in the first season seems to have died down and life is back to “normal”. As normal as it can be when you live with a succubus and the devil’s daughter. While perparing for a sports event at school, Basara and the others are attacked by magic wielding humans. Due to the strength of this attack, Basara wants to become stronger so he can protect his new family from this new threat. Rukia, Maria’s sister, appears and leads Basara and the girls to the demon realm where a new battle for control has begun. Continue reading

Dimension W Broadcast Dub Version Going Straight to Toonami

Published by:


I’m sure some of you have been waiting for the Dimension W dub version. Well guess what? It’s going straight to Toonami. This is a first for broadcast dubs to air while the show is still on in Japan. It won’t even be available on Funimation.com until 2 weeks after it airs. I guess you can say Space Dandy may be a first since it was shown dubbed and subbed at the same time but it was before Funimation started doing broadcast dubs. Funimation is on the production committee for the show and it seems like they went in big time on Dimension W. I like the show and hope it gets more than a 12 episode run because so far it looks like something that needs more than 12 to tell the story.

Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin

Published by:


Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin is an origin story of the Red Comet. It delves into the past of Casval Rem Deikun and Artesia Som Deikun. It goes from their childhood to the time that Casval leaves to later become the Red Comet. For those trying to keep up with the Gundam universe, it takes place before the One Year War.

Don’t pick this one up for action scenes. There are a few and the usual explosions and people dying but it’s more of the backstory part of their journey through their turbulent lives. It can be slow at times but it can’t all be action 100% of the time. You get to watch Casval and Artesia grow up while trying to survive the usual political issues that occur in Gundam series.

Puella Magi Madoka Magica (Mahō Shōjo Madoka Magika)

Published by:

Puella Magi Madoka Magica? Really dawg? You watched that? Yes, yes I did…one of the sites that does top ten lists had this list of gruesome murders and it was on it so I had to see what happened. I will say that the murder was pretty brutal so I have to go find that site and thank them.

On the face of this one, you would think it’s just a shiny magical girl show but it’s not. Trust me, it’s not. It starts off looking like one but this show is much much darker than that. Where else would you see magical girls using guns or trying to kill each other? The magical girl game is getting hardcore. Don’t take that for the whole show being like that, it’s not an action show for the most part. It does have it’s girly girly moments too but there was a lot that I didn’t expect from this one. A lot.

Gunplay that would rival some serious action shows.

Madoka is a middle school student who along with her friend Sayaka, encounter a creature known as Kyubey. This creature offers to make a contract with them to be magical girls but a transfer student named Homura stops Madoka from forming the contract. Along the way, Madoka and Sayaka meet another magical girl named Mami who brings them along on witch hunts so they can see what being a magical girl is about. Madoka learns quickly that it’s a pretty cruel lifestyle filled with danger, anguish, suffering and even death. This is only the beginning od the journey for Madoka, Sayaka and Homura.

Sexy and Stupid Water Polo Comedy (Hantsu x Trash)

Published by:

Hantsu x Trash also known as Sexy and Stupid Water Polo Comedy is a manga that has a decent amount of material but all it ended up with is a 10 minute OVA.

The story behind Hantsu x Trash is about a high school freshman Hamaji Youhei who leads an aimless life. He doesn’t keep up in school, he’s not good at sports and doesn’t stick to anything very long. He’s just an average hormonal driven teenager with no outlet. A sophomore friend comes along and convinces him to join the Water Polo Club where he can lunge at girls and touch them all he wants and this is where the OVA kicks in. Continue reading

Rec (Rekku)

Published by:

Rec is a short anime that came out a decade ago. It actually started airing in February of 2006. One look at the show and you can tell it’s from that timeline but it doesn’t look as dated as a lot of older shows do. If I said it came out this year, you might actually believe me.

Fumihiko is just an average working guy with no girlfriend. He invites a woman out from work and she stands him up. Another woman, named Aka, who happens to be passing by when he’s about to throw out the tickets, gets him to go see the movie with her instead. The two of them have dinner and then he walks her home when they find out they live in the same neighborhood. Unfortunately a mere few hours later there was a fire which burned her apartment down. Fumihiko being concerned, went to go see if Aka was okay but he finds her there in the rain, holding onto the last of her possessions. Fumihiko invites her to stay at his place and they begin a new relationship “more than friends and less than lovers” which they hide from their coworkers. Can the two co-exist with all the tensions growing between them? Continue reading

Burn Up W

Published by:

Burn Up W takes place some time after Burn Up but I don’t recall them mentioning a year or anything. The show is back but with an all new cast of characters and a few vintage characters.

Burn Up W is a 4 episode OVA which starts off with a ‘simple’ crime then moves onto a 2 episode crime. But all 4 episodes are tied into each other in some way so it’s not like 4 separate missions. A new crime syndicate is trying to take over Policetown and Maki with her new team are trying to stop them. Continue reading

Burn Up

Published by:

Burn Up is a cop comedy similar to a buddy cop movie like Lethal Weapon and Bad Boys. The only difference is a female team of cops is the lead.

Burn Up is a one hour OVA about three cops, though it seems like two cops and an assistant. Maki, Reimi and Yuka definitely don’t look like cops since they’re stuck on desk duty and they’re actually traffic patrol cops. Things change when Yuka gets kidnapped by a white slave trade operation and Maki and Reimi jump in to action in their skin tight armor and tanks. Continue reading

Needless

Published by:

Needless is a show I bypassed when it came out but decided to give it a chance recently. Not even sure why I bypassed it before since dystopian future type of stuff usually draws me in.

The story takes place in a future where a Third World War has taken place. A war that has brought worldwide chaos and also creates room for a new species known as Needless. Needless are humans who have contracted a ‘disease’ that allows them to wield new powers that mankind could only dream of. They’re able to control gravity, telekenesis, adapting, elementals and several other powers that you only see in comic books. Continue reading
